Get Ready for Moda Blockheads!

Moda Blockheads Block-of-the-Week

We're still receiving/shipping orders every day for our KT Starter Packs. We're thrilled everyone is so excited about our Block-of-the-Week series. Just 2 more weeks until our first block is revealed.
As a reminder, here are the facts.

What is it?

A 48-week long series of one 6" block a week. Begins Wednesday, March 8, 2017

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.

I will post a link right here on my blog to the designer-of-the-week on Wednesdays, beginning March 8th. Plus, I'm offering most of the blocks in my unique layered patchwork option, too, available right here. We'll have step-by-step instructions on how to simplify your block the KT way. So fun, you'll want to make both versions! 

Do I have to buy a Starter Pack to participate in the BOW? 

Absolutely not! All patterns are free on the designer's blogs each week for you to download as you wish. We're offering the Starter Packs as an option to collect a variety of each designer's fabrics. Have a basket full of scraps perfect for 6" blocks? Great! We'd love to see how they look. Post your finished blocks each week on Facebook with the hashtag #modablockheads.

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.

KTQ will be offering fat 1/8 packs of tans for backgrounds plus 6-packs of reds, navys, greens and assorted gold/purple/pumpkin/black in the coming weeks to add to your Starter Pack as you make blocks.

KT's Blog Posts of BOW

Two of my main piecers, Joy & Kathy, are making blocks ahead so we're ready to rock & roll when March 8 hits. They're coming out wonderfully! Kathy is making the blocks as each designer instructed in assorted fabrics from all the different collections. Joy is making the 48 blocks with my  layered patchwork technique in KT fabrics. It'll be exciting to see all the blocks in two colorways and piecing techniques. You won't want to miss a week! See you next Wednesday.


  1. Looking forward to the new BOW!

  2. I would love to do the block of the month, however, I am unable to find where I can register for it. Help

  4. Can't wait for it to start. Always looking for a way to use my scraps.

  5. Got my KT starter pack, I seem to be having problems figuring out how to get them from the others. Some are out I guess. I hope I can find some fabrics to keep up. This should be fun!

  6. I have never done a block of the week, but this is very intriguing especially because I am a "dark side" fabric lover and a Kansas Troubles fan. I think I'll give it a whirl!

  7. You reeled me right in. Can't wait to get started.

  8. I know I shouldn't start one more thing, but this one is way too tempting. I'm in!

  9. It is exciting that you are the first to post a block. I am really looking to this BOW!

  10. I have to try at least some of these blocks. I really love the dark colorway of each of these designers!
