Moda Blockheads Week #46


We're soooo close to the end! This has been a great 48 week series. I've enjoyed getting to know the other designers better, and LOVE hearing your thoughts and seeing all the amazing blocks on Facebook. Thanks to everyone who has participated. I'm anxious to see your finished quilts.

Question of the Week: 

When you stitch - hand or machine - do you listen to anything?
When I'm sewing on my machine, I'll turn on music or watch something that's easy to follow, like reruns of Law and Order:SVU, Flea Market Flip, or Project Runway. If I'm hand-sewing, I'll sit in my comfy chair with the hubby and watch TV. Since we both work at KTQ, we try not to drag work into every evening, but it's technically bonding time since we're in the same room, right?

Blockheads #46 - Cat and Dog by Jan Patek

When I first started working in a quilt shop about 30 years ago, I was drawn to Jan's primitive, hand-drawn applique motifs. Her style is easily recognizable and perfect for my country-style home. One of the UFO's at the top of my list to finish is one of Jan's. It's a patriotic-themed quilt I hope to complete by summer. It's fun and challenging to play with other designer's patterns.

Kathy & Joy stitched up their blocks in cotton and wool again. Kathy's whimsical striped cotton fabric is adorable. Joy chose wools for texture on a plaid background. Both of them added stitched kitty whiskers.




Visit my friends to see their blocks this week.

  1. Yes, I listen to spiritual modern music such as from John Astin or Rickie Byars Beckwith. It really helps to inspire and encourage me! I love the darling cat & dog patterns!
