Announcing...A NEW Block-of-the-Week

Moda Blockheads

I'm delighted to share the news that six of us at Moda - the designers who love "the dark side" - are partnering to bring you a 48 week long Block-of-the-Week series. Beginning March 8th, we'll take turns posting a 6" quilt block each Wednesday - just for you. It's so fun to see the variety of blocks the other designers have chosen/designed for their posts. I can't wait to see it all come together!

The fun begins with an opportunity for you to add a little to your stash from each of our collections in our Starter Pack. Each of the designers has assembled an assortment of (24) fat 1/16ths (9" x 11" each) to use in making your weekly 6" blocks. That way, you can follow along and make the blocks from each designer in their fabric OR make every block scrappy with a bit from each designer's collections. I can't decide which way to go, so I'll probably do both! At the end of 48 weeks, I'll have options for setting the blocks with KT fabrics for a totally scrappy dark side quilt. 

Our KT Starter Pack ($18 + shipping) includes 8 lights and 16 assorted KT darks.Not all packs are the same, but all include some of my favorite small prints for 6" blocks. My blocks will be offered as Layered Patchwork every 6 weeks. I'm also planning to convert many of the other designers' blocks with my easy, layered technique to simplify piecing. It's a great time to try out Layered Patchwork in a small project. Call KTQ at 785-488-2120 to order now!

KT Starter Pack - $18


Here's all the information you need to follow me and the other 5 delightful Moda designers for the 48 week Block-of-the Week. We'll be posting in a 6 week cycle in the order listed below, so follow us on this almost year-long journey. You won't want to miss a week!

We'd love to see your blocks as you stitch along with us. Post to any social media sight using the hashtag -  #modablockheads.
