Blockheads Week #41 - Pinwheel Star by Lisa BongeanLisa has designed another dynamic block this week with lots of visual movement. How can you beat and pinwheel and a star? Kathy opted for traditional red/white/blues from Lisa's fabric collections while Joy pieced her Layered Patchwork block in assorted KT prints.
Click HERE for Lisa's blog and the instructions for her Pinwheel Star.
It's not easy to see from the front of the blocks that the triangles on the Layered Patchwork block are topstitched instead of pieced, but very easy to see how many seams are eliminated from the picture of the back of the blocks.

Question of the Week: Christmas presents - did you make any? Did you finish everything or will you still be stitching on December 24th?I don't try to start new quilting projects this late in the season, but might give a quilt that's already done. However, Robert and I have a couple of upcycled projects to finish yet. Parts are prepared, assembly is required. I can't reveal what they are yet as my kids sometimes follow my blog. We're having Christmas on December 23rd this year, so we better be done before then!
Moda is generously offering a great prize from each of the designers this week as our "Thank You" to all of you for participating in the last year of Moda Blockheads BOW. My giveaway is a Harvest Hill fat 1/8 bundle AND my new Cozy Quilts and Comforts book. Comment below for a chance to win. (NOTE: Robert took the picture with a fat 1/4 bundle, because that's all we had left. The giveaway is for a fat 1/8 bundle.)
