THE STORY BEHIND THE DESIGN

BH4: Block 20 Stop Go

Happy Blockheads day!  I am so excited to share my block today called Stop Go.  This block was inspired by the constant stop and go of life.  There are times in our life where we are working, busy with kids and family and then there are times when we are forced to stop.  Usually completely out of our control like health issues, family crises or dare I say it a pandemic!  

 

I love this block because of all the possible colorways and layouts.  For my block I created four different options using my Holiday Essentials collection.  I feel like it looks great in any holiday and it is such a versatile block.

 

I hope you enjoy creating this block.  Click HERE to download the pattern.

SAMPLE SPREE: WEEK 10

So for today’s last call out I chose to use orange and pink and boy what a combo it is.  I love how these blocks turned out...so warm and fiery.  


Can you believe it’s the last call out for our QAL.  I am so sad that we are almost done but feel so good about my little stack of gems.  I have learned so much from Susan’s book and I will definitely carry them onto my quilting journey.  This QAL is not quite over yet,  we have to create the quilt next so stay tuned for my finished quilt reveal.  I can’t wait to lay these all out and come up with a layout.  I love Susan’s layout but I have been surfing the Blockheads Facebook page and have been inspired by a lot of your layouts.  I have a few ideas in mind and can’t wait to show you my final pick.  Happy Sewing everyone! #showmethemoda, #modafabrics, #stacyiesthsufabrics, #samplerspreeqal, #jungleparadise

SAMPLE SPREE: WEEK 9

Today’s call out is blacks/grays.  Because I don’t have black or gray in this collection I decided to do multi-color blocks for this week because when you mix all the colors together they make black or gray.  I love love love how these blocks turned out.  It truly celebrates this collection.  Hope this adds some cheer to your day like it does mine!  #showmethemoda, #modafabrics, #stacyiesthsufabrics, #samplerspreeqal, #jungleparadise

SAMPLE SPREE: WEEK 8

We are coming to the end of summer here in California and my kids will be headed off to school next week(two high schoolers and one middle schooler...it’s going to be an interesting year).  We are trying to hold onto those summer vibes and enjoy every last minute of unscheduled time.  To keep the summer time vibes going, I chose dark green for my blocks this week.  I love green, and dare say it is my favorite color.  I just love how these blocks turned out, so rich and lush.  Hope you are enjoying your last bits of summer!  #showmethemoda, #modafabrics, #stacyiesthsufabrics, #samplerspreeqal, #jungleparadise

SAMPLE SPREE: WEEK 7

It’s the last week of July and we are just chugging right along!  Today’s call out is Purple/coral/pink.  Because I don’t have some of these colors and I already have done pink, so I decided to do pink and green.  There is such a wide variety of blocks because of the different shades of pink and green in this collection.  Hope you enjoy the variety!  #showmethemoda, #modafabrics, #stacyiesthsufabrics, #samplerspreeqal, #jungleparadise
