Blockheads BOW - Coming Soon!

Blockheads Block-of-the-Week

We're blown away by the response to our KT Starter Pack for the Blockheads BOW. Thanks to everyone who called or visited our website to prepare for the new series. Several callers had questions about our BOW. Over the next couple weeks, I'll try to answer your questions and make this the easiest BOW ever.

What is it?
A 48-week long series of one 6" block a week.

Who are the designers?
Six of us at Moda who favor warm, cozy colors (the dark side) are collaborating to bring you 8 unique blocks each.  Joining me are Betsy Chutchian, Jo Morton, Jan Patek, Lisa Bongean & Carrie Nelson. Sign up at each blog (click on the name) for automatic emails each time one of these ladies posts their block.

When does it start? 
Wednesday, March 8, 2017. Free patterns for blocks will be posted every Wednesday for 48 weeks.

Where can I find the 6" block patterns?
Check here at the Kansas Troubles' blog on Wednesdays for the link to each designer's blog and their free pattern.

How do I get started?
Each of the 6 designers is offering an assortment of their fabrics as a starter pack. Our KT Starter Pack includes a total of (24) fat 16th's (9"x11" each) - 8 tans plus an assortment of (16) KT darks - for $18 plus postage. Find it on our website here.





Have questions? I'll answer you next Wednesday.
Comment this week to win a KT Starter Pack!

PS- I love this picture Jan Patek put together from our new fabric collection tags. So fun!

  3. I personally like the warm and cozy look the best, I am always drawn to those quilts first. Can't wait to see what you girls come up with, maybe a dark side sew along is just what I need!
