Blockheads II - Week #4

12" Roman Cross by Brigitte Heitland of Zen Chic 

This week, Brigitte designed a 12" block with lots of opportunity for color options. I used red/tan/blue once again for one of my colorways, and classic KTQ for the other. It's an easy block with good-sized pieces, but take care adding the B-triangles onto either side of the D-square and C-rectangle (block corner units). The accuracy of your piecing here will determine how square and true-to-size your block finishes. This caution comes not because I had to rip out the first two corners of mine, just as a heads up. ;)

  1. My color plan is a moderated red white and blue--meaning, I'm using creams and tans, too, but I plan to donate the finished quilt as a Quilt of Valor.

  8. I like the red/tan/blue, but really I like your fabrics so you could insert any of your colors in the post and that would be my favorites.

    A favorite? That's like saying which one of your kids do you love the most. Right now I'm most drawn to Zen Chic because I love Grunge, Lisa Bonjean because well because gray is awesome and then there is Laurie Simpson who is using scraps from a variety of Minnick and Simpson lines who I'm totally obsessed with. Tomorrow it might be KT or Me and My Sister or who knows because I'm basically a Moda girl. I guess I'll have to give the answer my kids always use when asked who is Momma's favorite and that is none - because she hates us all the same. ;)

  13. Tan/beige backgrounds with an assortment of fabrics from my Kansas Troubles stash.

  14. My favorite colors right now are blue, cream and tan. This is the color scheme I would use. Thanks!

  15. I am using tans, greens, burgundy and blues. All my favorites. It's hard to step out of my comfort zone, but those colors all go with my home.

    ReplyDelete
  16. I am using bright blues and yellow and red for this project.

    ReplyDelete
  17. My favorite colorway is a deep burgundy, deep forest green and a dark tan. I like to sometimes use some dark navy, as well.

    ReplyDelete
  18. I am really enjoying the Minick and Simpson patriotic scraps version.

    ReplyDelete
  19. I'm on a tan/beige and french blue color plan. I find that combination very calming.

    ReplyDelete
  20. My colorway is definitely a KT set with Burgundy, Tan, and Blues, with some green and cheddar thrown in. I just finished a Brown Bag Mystery Quilt in those colors and my family loves it. In addition to the KT, I love the Union Blues blocks.

  21. I am doing mine in Civil War colors, and I'm not sure I will have enough, so this would be a great win for me. Thanks for all the fun.

    ReplyDelete
  22. Honestly I think that my favorite is the colorway that "Me and My Sister" is using right now . . . but personally I know I would never be able to pull that one off! One thing I love about your fabrics is that it's hard to go wrong with them-- they all seem to work together well!

  23. Burgandy and dusty blue with tan backgrounds are calling to me! Have always loved harvest tones.

  25. I thought this project would be one where I break away from the usual. I liked the focus fabric my sister used in her quilt with purples & greens so she’s sharing. And I like Lisa’s color scheme. Decisions, decisions. 🤫

    ReplyDelete
  26. I'm actually using Kansas Troubles fabrics. Mostly Fresh Cut Flowers but have added in some Gooseberry Lane and Thistle Farm. How wonderful it would be to be able to add in some more fat quarters!

    ReplyDelete
  27. I would use blues, cream and tan plus maybe a soft brown. I’s lije To make various star blocks with these colors!

    ReplyDelete
  28. There's no question about it- my favorite colorways is Kansas Trouble country colors !!!!

    ReplyDelete
  29. I use a mix of white, grey and black for thefirst few blocks than swtich to Christmas fabrics. After that some Spring colors and than I don't know yet. But always Moda, of course.

    ReplyDelete
  30. I really like the alternate colors with the soft greens,coral and aqua. I plan to use creams for the background and an espresso brown for contrast. This is totally out of my comfort zone but I been collecting some fat quarters with these colors and this will be just the way to use them.

  43. I love RED, no matter what color it is, and of course, navy and tan set it off to perfection! Who could deny that it is time to think about flannels? The Farmers Almanac has promised us another chilly winter.
