Block Heads 2 – Block 35

It’s Week 28.  Block 35.  Gibby.  Laurie Simpson.  

This is Laurie Simpson’s booth at Fall Quilt Market 2018 – quilts and projects made with Minick & Simpson’s upcoming Crystal Lake collection.

Isn’t this gorgeous?  It makes a girl want to make a blue-and-white quilt.  Like… now.  

But first, Block 35 for Block Heads.  

The fabrics are from Evelyn’s Homestead by Betsy Chutchian.  

Block 35 – Gibby.

If you’re wondering where the name of the block came from… this is Gibby.  Laurie will happily own up to being very biased but he is a handsome boy.

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.

Now let’s see a little more of Crystal Lake and Laurie’s new quilts.

Rolling Stars – MS1801.  Measuring 42″ x 56″, the stars in this quilt are pieced and the circles can be machine or hand-appliquéd.

Because Laurie loves appliqué – especially hand-appliqué – there is always a quilt with lots of it.

Cobblestones – MS1802.  Measuring 56″ x 74″, Cobblestones combines piecing with folk art style birds and flowers.  

The quilting on both Cobblestones and Rolling Stars is by the super-special, quilter-extraordinaire, Maggi Honeyman – one of people without whom Quilt Market simply. would. not. happen.

Our Best Friends – MS1803.  There are two mini quilts – 20″ x 20″ – in the pattern, one for each of your besties.  

Just in case you missed it – Block 35 – Gibby.

To see what the other Block Heads have done with Gibby – did anybody make some changes?  Add something?  Let’s check out their blogs and Instagrams to see:

Then be sure to check the Moda Blockheads Facebook Group and the blocks being posted on Instagram – #ModaBlockheads

That’s it for Week 28 – Block 35!

Happy Wednesday!

  1. I was wondering how many more weeks were left in this program and if you could give me a little information. How many yards will we need for the backing, binding and any borders. Thanks

  2. I love Laurie’s new collection; I especially love the quilt with the applique border! Kay H
    P.S. Carrie let me know which cake mix I need to piece the blocks.

  3. For Moda blockheads 2, blocks 33 & 34, neither one prints the layout grid next to the photo; I’ve tried printing it out on two different printers with the same results. Haven’t had this happen with any other blocks and I’m using the same printer. Anyone else have this issue?
