Blockheads ~ Block 36

Thirty-six down, twelve to go.  Can you believe we’re three-quarters of the way through the year?

The prints are from Rachel Remembered by Betsy Chutchian and Independence Trail by Minick & Simpson.  And then there is the Snowberry by 3 Sisters background.

And okay, I might have tweaked my block just a little bit – I substituted half-triangle squares that finish at 1-1/4″ (measure 1-3/4″ with seam allowance included) for the plain square.  It just felt like the thing to do.  (Cut the squares at 2-1/8″ to piece them to size, or cut them at 2-1/4″ and trim them to measure 1-3/4″ after piecing.)

With Market looming, I didn’t get a Figgy block done but I’ll try to catch up with all of my “missing blocks” this weekend.

Here is Tammy’s block 36 – prints from Wild Orchid by Blackbird Designs.

Question of the Week ~ How many Moda fabric collections have you created?  Do you have a favorite?  If so, which one is it and why is it your favorite?

None.  As several people will happily point out, I am not a Moda fabric designer.  I think that makes me the “plus-one” in this group of Blockheads.  <insert smiling emoji here.>

Update: Blogger is messing with Jan Patek’s blog so for the time being, she has a new blog link –

Don’t forget that there is a Blockheads Archive with links to all of the published blocks and blog posts.

That’s it for today, November 8.  Be sure to visit Lisa, Lynne, Betsy, Jo and Jan to see their blocks and what other good things they might have made:

And don’t miss the blocks being posted to #modablockheads on Instagram and Facebook.  The colors, styles of fabric and block variations are wonderful.

If you’re not already a member, you can still join the Moda Blockheads Facebook group.  It’s a busy group with lots of tips, suggestions and support.

Happy Blockhead Wednesday!

    Love your block can’t wait to make it!
    I’ve never designed a fabric collection but to your total surprise B&C are my favorite designers and a favorite collection is really hard to pick but ‘Hello Darling’ is a wonderful one (the strawberries).
    But hands down what is your most favorite collection?

  2. CathyBurk says:

    Carrie…what is your favorite quilt pattern that you’ve ever designed? That might be a better question for you, since you are the “plus one” in the group!

  3. I haven’t created any fabric collection and, thankfully, I have access to all the beautiful selections on the market. I love ALL of Lynn’s fabrics, 30s reproductions, Civil War fabrics, I could go on and on.

    Don’t count yourself out as a designer Carrie, it may not have been from Moda but I loved Fresh Palette. Don’t remember the year but I still have some. Just saying you do it all. Love all that you do for us Blockheads.
