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.
