It’s official – it’s Autumn! Maybe someplace… but not in Dallas. Not yet. But Happy Fall anyway.
So… have you gotten a pumpkin yet? Baked something with apples? Candy corn? Have you made any “gorp”? (Candy corn, salted peanuts, M&Ms and dried cranberries or raisins.)
What about a Pumpkin Spice Latte? (Me either… not my favorite.)
I ask because that is Laurie Simpson’s most favorite thing about this time of year – pumpkin and pumpkin-spice everything. Everywhere. Uh… not. Like me, she’s not a fan. She’s just funnier about it.
Today’s blocks were made by Moda Michele – again. (See below.)
Wool appliqué on a needs-to-be-trimmed-down circle! How pretty is that stitching?
Block 22 – Economy Path (Should that be Plus Sign?)
The fabrics are from Jo Morton’s Timeless. Michele’s combination is terrific.
Correction: 32 rectangles are needed for this block – not 8. The 8 is for each mini-plus sign.

Remember… if the blogs aren’t up or the links aren’t working, check the Moda Block Heads 2 Archive. Because if you’re reading this, it’s already been updated and it will have what you’re looking for.
Moving. I’m unpacked but there are still a few boxes in the storage closet. (Few?!? Relative term.) I am mostly settled but I still haven’t found a few things… I’ll manage until they turn up. The move was from Plano to Irving, into a new apartment that is just a tiny bit bigger, and has faux wood floors throughout. One of the things I’m enjoying most is learning a new part of town, and learning my way around with “new” roads and highways. Sewing soon – probably for Market!
Did I mention that there is a Block Heads book coming with all forty-eight blocks from Year 1? We’ll share more soon – including a giveaway or three – but this is Betsy Chutchian’s finished quilt from BH1.
