Block Heads 2 – Block 9

Laurie Simpson – one of the new Block Heads on the block.  While she might try to tell you otherwise, Laurie does do piecing – just look at the block Laurie chose for her Block Heads debut!

With A Plus – Block 9.  It’s 6″ finished.

Moda Michelle made the block above using Betsy Chutchian’s Hope’s Journey collection.

To see Laurie’s block and get the block instructions – Laurie’s Blog ~ Block 9 – With A Plus Instructions.

As for my block, I followed the instructions this time!  And then I made a few changes.  (Admit it, you’d be surprised – and maybe even a little disappointed! – if I didn’t.  lol)

The fabrics are from a variety of collections – Jen Kingwell’s Beach Road and Looking Forward and Zen Chic’s Modern Backgrounds Paper and More Paper.

These are Laurie’s first eight blocks, all made using fabrics from various Minick & Simpson collections for Moda.

Over-achiever that she is – I think it runs in the family – Laurie is also making a version of this quilt using Bella Solids in the color palette that Brigitte Heitland of Zen Chic used to color the Instruction sheets.

To see what kind of Plus signs the other Block Heads are going to make:

Happy Wednesday!

  1. Love the changes you made and you might be surprised but I’ll play around with the pattern a bit too;-) (Pretend you are surprised by that, lol).

We love to hear from you...
