MODA BLOCKHEADS 2: BLOCK 2-Buckeye Beauty
Block 2 was designed by Barbara Groves and Mary Jacobson of Me and My Sister Designs. To get your copy of the pattern visit their blog: www.meandmysisterdesigns.com
This was a very easy block and of course I found a way to add my hedgehogs to it..
I think there may very well be a Hedghog BOM in my future.
Here are the two blocks I have made so far:
Moda Blockheads 2: block 1-Stellar Star
I am so excited to be starting Round 2 of Moda Blockheads. I made so many quilting friends during Blockheads 1 and look forward to sewing with some of them again this time around as well as meeting new people who are joining in the fun. I am not associated with Moda or the designers in any way, I just enjoy making the blocks and taking you along on my journey.
So without further ado-Block 1 is by Lynne Hagmeier of Kansas Troubles Quilters. You can get the pattern from her blog which is found here:
For my blocks I am using a line called Neutral Nature by Cynthia Coulter-I came across this fabric last year during the Row by Row shop hop and fell in love with the color combination of teal, green, golden browns and grays as well as the botanical prints. These fabrics have been waiting for just the right project and this is it. I have also added several fabrics from my stash to give me more choices and depth of color from light to dark and am using a Moda Marble for my background fabric.
I really like to start with prewashed fabric that has been starched in preparation for cutting.
Lynn's pattern has all of those A's listed which I broke down in order to know how much of each color to cut. So I have A1-cut 12; A2-cut 16; and A3 cut 8. I did the same for the C rectangles cutting 4 from each of my two C fabrics.
Are you ready for the first block? I had a lot of fun making this one-so much so I am making a second one.
Before we get started let me remind everyone that the block will be free until the release of Block 2 in July and after that it will be available in my store for purchase. Because of that I am not writing step-by-step tutorials on my blog for these blocks-however-I have tried to do that with my pattern instructions. I think you will find them quite detailed. I have also started to learn how to make video tutorials and will be including them as we go along-these will always be free and available on my website and I hope you find them even more useful than my photo tutorials were.
Okay, let me introduce you to Block 1-Glistening!
;To get the pattern you will need to add it to your cart and then click "checkout", this will redirect you to your shopping cart click Checkout again, enter your name and email and you will be given a page with the downloads. An email will also be sent to you with the download links. (Since the pattern is currently free, there is no payment information collected.) There have been some issues with iPad users not being able to check out-I am trying to figure out a fix, in the meantime if you use a computer it should work fine for you. I am also going to add the files to my Facebook Sew Along group page during the month that they are free-hopefully that will help everyone get the directions!
Here is the link for the pattern: Block 1

I ask that you do not share your copy with anyone-but do feel free to share how they can get their own copy of the pattern here on my website.
I wanted to start us out with some simple shapes for learning to do machine applique combined with some piecing techniques we will be using throughout this quilt project.
I have created video tutorials for making the Hourglass blocks, How to fan your seams for the corner units, a couple versions of machine applique, and the hand embroidery stitches used to make the faces.
