Moda Blockheads Week #41


Blockheads Week #41 - Pinwheel Star by Lisa Bongean

Lisa 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.)


Be sure to comment on each designer's blog this week to win a wonderful giveaway from Moda! What a fun Christmas surprise in your mailbox.

  2. Did I make presents for Christmas?-of course I did and am still in progress. Some will be finished and some will extend into the new year!! The biggest project is the sectional slipcover my daughter asked for for Christmas-did I say I was a quilter not upholsterer. It is partially done and I see some sleepless nights to get it dobe. She will love it when it is done-I hope. Merry Christmas to you and yours this holiday season Cathy R.

  36. I did not make any handmade gifts for Christmas but I did give away several substantial gifts during the year! Next year I need to start earlier!

    ReplyDelete
  37. Haven't made but two gifts handmade this year. Hubby's birthday is in Jan, so that is still in the works. Will start after Christmas to work on next Christmas. Seems like I'm always going to start in August to work on Christmas, but before I know it, October arrives. Then as soon as I take the turkey out of the oven for Thanksgiving, it's Christmas. You'd think I'd plan better, it's not like they change the holidays around every year. I know it's coming, it just get here faster each year... as I guess we are getting slower :)

    ReplyDelete
  38. I made lots of handmade gifts. Still have more to do.

    ReplyDelete
  39. I had a long lists of gifts I was intending to give this year, but most of them were side-tracked as I've been making kennel quilts for all the dogs and cats affected by the many natural disasters this year. Now it's the horrendous SoCal wild fires--they just keep coming.

    ReplyDelete

Merry Christmas to you & yours!

I've enjoyed all the Blockhead patterns this year and am excited that you participated.

  135. I didn't make any Christmas gifts this year. After 9 weddings in 18 months,I am ready to hear Christmas bells instead of wedding bells. There were quilts (not quite finished) and cross stitched samplers (finished) and brides maids dresses to be hemmed so I am ready to finish wedding quilts and do sewing for me which means I make a quilt and gift it. Such is the quilty life.

    I am making a wall quilt for our granddaughter who is a senior at Murray State in Kentucky. Their team's name is The Racers, so the quilt has 4 horse heads on it. This should have been done a long time ago, but I have really dragged my feet because it looked too hard. Last night I finished the 4 heads, and today I will put on the borders. Each head has a lot of pieces, so I have a lot of sewing ahead of me:)

  167. I crocheted hot pads out of cotton yarn in lots of yummy colors. I noticed my hotpads and my friends were all yucky. So decided everyone needed new hot pads!

  171. I am knitting some hats (must go faster!) and have a couple done, and I'm stitching little bags filled with fun things for different friends. OH! And I made a purse the other day, and one more to go this weekend. I'm at the point where I'm eliminating the things I can't possibly get done that seemed a great plan in November.
