This is a listing of the blocks in the series – we’ll update this archive each week as the new block is released. Click the block picture or the title of the block to link to the PDF of the instructions – it can be saved or printed. (Or both!)
Every Wednesday, each of the six Blockheads will share a blog post showing their version of that week’s block, sharing any tips they have and answering the Question of the Week. There are always a few extras – Lisa frequently has a bonus block and Betsy has a penny-sized block every week.
Blockheads? Blockheads…-I always liked Charlie Brown. I think most of us did because unless you were the super-coolest kid in school, we could all relate to Charlie.
Blockheads ~ Block 1-Finally! It’s happening here – the Blockheads Block of the Week is starting. Today.
Gobsmacked…-We were pretty sure many quilters would love the idea of a traditional-Repro-primitive Block of the Week but WOW. Color me utterly astounded. (And yes, that’s the definition of “gobsmacked” according to Dictionary.com. I checked.)
Blockheads ~ Block 2-Did you finish Whirligig – the Blockheads Block 1? More importantly, did you see the gorgeous blocks from each of the designers?
A few of my favorite things…-One of my favorite things about this community of quilters is that most love to share. From giving quilts to passing along what they know, the skinny on a cool tip, technique or tool they’ve learned to a piece of fabric – sometimes one they love but happily give up because it’s the one you desperately […]
Blockheads ~ Block 8-Betsy’s Basket. A Basket from Betsy. Basket of Triangles – and there are plenty. Betsy’s beautiful Basket can be made with two fabrics or twenty prints and one background. Or more backgrounds. It’s really a versatile block with a lot of options. That alone makes it a favorite. To get the pattern for Basket of […]
Blockheads ~ Block 17-No! This is no time for tears! We’ve made it through sixteen weeks and we’re more than a third of the way through.
Blockheads ~ Block 18-Happy July! While the past few days have been all about the red, white and blue here in the colonies, it’s a whole lot more colorful in Figgyland.
Blockheads ~ Block 19-It’s July! Summer. Vacations. Kids at home? Grand adventures – summers are made for that kind of thing. Basically, there are lots and lots of distractions. So do you have eighteen blocks made?
Blockheads ~ Block 20-It’s past the mid-point in July and we’re getting close to the mid-point for the Blockheads. Still, where has this year gone? Is it flying by for you too?
Blockheads ~ Block 21-We’re more than one-third of the way through… gaining on one-half. That’s 10/24ths? 5/12ths!
Blockheads ~ Block 23-According to some folks in Houston, Texas, the lazy, hazy, crazy days – day – of summer is this Saturday, August 12th. That’s the day of a 5K race… or lazy stroll. Houston in August. It will be hot and humid.
Blockheads ~ Block 38-Peace & Plenty. That’s the perfect block for this time of year… at least in the non-Canadian Colonies. While Thanksgiving is celebrated in many countries around the world, it’s always the fourth Thursday of November. Tomorrow.
Blockheads ~ Block 39-Today is National Electronic Greetings Day! I had to open with something and since I can’t send you each an e-card individually, I thought I’d share some of my favorite sewing-quilting-related ee-cards.
Blockheads ~ Block 41-Happy Wednesday! It’s National Cocoa Day! That calls for Serendipity’s Frozen Hot Chocolate!
Blockheads ~ Block 42-Coming and going. Is that how you feel right now? So many things to do… not nearly enough time to do everything you think you should get done… and all you really want to do is curl up in front of a warm sewing machine. (Or maybe that’s just me.)
