Moda Blockheads 2 - Block #34

Block #34 is
Basket and Vine by Jan Patek
To download the pattern 
click here.


Usually I make a 2nd block and take pictures 
as I go along to do a tutorial.  
This week however, we have had a blizzard 
which has taken up most of my time.  
And ladies the month of Christmas is upon us.
So instead I'm going to refer you to a tutorial I
did on You Tube on Baskets.
The basket itself is a different shape but the principal
is the same.  And dealing with the basket handle,
stems and leaves is exactly the same.. 
To watch it go to https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RC9gfRDNXKE.
I believe we have already covered circles (berries) and stars
in other blocks.

This is Midnight Serenade - a TableStand (Or Table Top) Quilt.
Each little quilt is really 2 quilts so if it's 
sitting on your table it can be seen from both sides.

This is the front


And this is the back.
Or viva versa.


It's being featured in my book by Martingale 
that's coming out soon.


To celebrate the book - I'm having a drawing for a kit.
Make a comment, any old comment
and I will have the random number generator
pick one to be announced next
Blockheads Wednesday.

Now lets go see what the other designers 
have done with my Basket Block.

Lynne of Kansas Troubles
Barb & Mary of Me and My Sister
Brigitte Heitland of Zen Chic
Vanessa of Lella Boutique
Betsy Chutchian
Stacy lest Hsu
Laurie Simpson of Minick & Simpson
Sherri McConnell of A Quilting Life

  37. Love your Midnight Serenade blocks! Recently moved away from lake effect snows south of Buffalo, NY to SC after being there for 16 yrs. From 200i inches of snow a year to maybe 3 inches. I’ll miss it a little but I can relate to it consuming your time. Thanks for all the time you put into sharing your work.
