Moda Blockheads Week #17

Blockhead Question of the Week: 

Do you keep a written list of your works in progress, etc?
I think I answered most of this in last week's long winded post. I don't have alot of UFO's but am certainly not organized enough that I have a list. I have to make lists for work, that's enough. My "wish list" is sticky notes in books/magazines that I've marked as I'm drooling over the pages. One of the latest on my have-to-make list is Carrie Nelson's Opening Day from her new book, Miss Rosie's Farmhouse Favorites. I don't design many two color quilts since my fabric lines are multi-colored, so I think I'm drawn to them in other designer's books. It's dreamy. Sigh...

From Miss Rosie's Farmhouse Favorites (Carrie Nelson)
I was able to make several two color quilts for my new book coming this fall, Cozy Quilts & Comforts. Here's a sneak peak of the cover. So exciting!



On to our Block of the Week #17. Lisa has a triangle block, Trail of Tears. Simple half squares arranged just so create a cool striped effect that can made a dozen different ways. I can't wait to see what all of you do with it.

Go to Lisa's Blog for her easy instructions.

Here is Kathy's traditional block in Lisa's red/tan/blue. Can't you see a a lap quilt done with these blocks? Yikes, there's another quilt on my to-do list.

Block #17 - Trail of Tears

Joy's block is kind of a planned scrappy of KT tans/darks. Much more subtle diagonal stripes.Such different looks from the same block. Keep in mind, our layered half squares mean no trimming.

Don't forget - the Moda Blockheads Directory is available for all the block instructions to date.

Check back Saturday, July 1st to see the KT Special of the month.
