Blockheads

Welcome to the Moda Blockheads!

This is a listing of the blocks in the series – it will be updated each week as a new block is released.  Click the title of the block to link to the PDF of the instructions – it can be saved or printed.  (Or both!)

The Moda Blockheads are:

Every Wednesday, each of the six participants has 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?
Blockheads ~ Block 3 - Hello Aunt Dinah! You brought friends.
Sewing small… - While a 6″ finished block with 1″ x 2″ flying geese isn’t really that small, it is when you’re used to working with bigger pieces and blocks.
Blockheads ~ Block 4 - It’s Week 4 and for the three Blockheads in the office, we’re all current.  For now.  What about you?
Blockheads ~ Block 5 - Happy Wednesday – its the weekly gathering of the Blockheads!
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 6 - Happy Blockheads Wednesday!
Blockheads ~ Block 7 - Six down, forty-two to go.
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 9 - Week Nine!  And no, still no big nine-patch block.
Blockheads ~ Block 10 - I feel like we need a Blockheads theme song… something stirring that gets your attention!  Ride of the Valkyries?  Or is that too dramatic?
Blockheads ~ Block 11 - It’s Lisa Bongean’s week on the Blockheads… and I think you know what that means…
Blockheads ~ Block 12 - It’s week 12 so we’ve completed two trips around the block with the Blockheads.
Blockheads ~ Block 13 - It’s rather fitting that this week’s block is titled Bowtie Quartet – we’ve finished one quarter of the blocks!  Twelve done, thirty-six to go!
Blockheads ~ Block 14 - June!  Can you believe it?  We’re three months into the Blockheads and… so far, I’m still caught up.
Blockheads ~ Block 15 - Fabulous Fifteen!
Blockheads ~ Block 16 - Sweet Sixteen!  So let’s wave the flag and celebrate!
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!
