THE STORY BEHIND THE DESIGN

Block 52 INTERSECTION

WOW...can you believe how close we are to the end of Blockheads 3.  I have to say, during this season of Corona Virus and elections this weekly sew along has been my saving grace.  It's been such a fun thing to look forward to and it has kept me sane.  As I have mentioned in post past, part of the fun of this series has been laying out all my blocks to see what looks best and just admire all the new skills I have learned.  Although it has been a lot of work I will be sad to see this ends soon.  You all are so inspiring and your blocks have inspired me to be a better designer.  I am so grateful for you all!

Well, let's get to business shall we.  Today is my last block in the series called Intersection.  Although it is a very simple block, with fun color placement, it can have a really great impact.  I really hope you enjoy making this block and I look forward to seeing all of your versions of this block.  You can download the pattern HERE.

 

Also, from this point forward, there will be a Layer Cake giveaway each week in the Moda Facebook Group. A Layer Cake of On The Farm is up for grabs this week. To enter that giveaway, go here to the Moda Facebook Group and leave the required comment under my post.

Block 46 Alternate

Hi everyone!  Well I still have not conquered my fear of applique so I came up with an alternate block for Jan Padek's Roses, Block 46.  It is a 12" block (finished) and 12 1/2" block (unfinished).   You can use just one flower to make a 6" block.  Hope this helps out all those folks that are afraid of applique like me : ).  You can download the pattern HERE.

Blockhead 38 Fractured Rainbow

Hi Everyone and Happy Blockhead Day!  Can you believe we are at block 38.  This week is my block and it's called Fractured Rainbow.  I live in California and believe me, I could really use a Rainbow : ).  The air quality is getting better, but a few weeks back it was incredibly awful.  I was driving my son to the eye doctor at 1:30 in the afternoon and this  was what it looked like.  NO FILTER.  

I designed this block way before Covid and the wildfires.  Little did I know how much I would appreciate being able to go outside and see blue skies.  This block makes me so happy and hopeful and I hope you enjoy making it!  Click HERE to download the pattern.

BLOCK 24 - BE MY NEIGHBOR

Hi Everyone and Happy Blockheads day!  Today is my block, Be My Neighbor. 

 

This block was inspired by my love of Mr. Rogers.  Being raised on a farm, I never experienced the neighborhood life like most.  When I watched Mr. Rogers as a child,  I loved the beginning when they would pan over the miniature town.  All the homes lined up in different colors.  I just thought it was so amazing.  

 

I created this block with a dark periwinkle background with bright colors for the little homes so that they pop.  I wanted it to be clean and modern so it is a very simple block and fun and easy to make.  I hope you enjoy making it and adding it to your Blockhead collection.  You can download the block HERE.
