Moda Blockheads II - Week #14

Welcome to Blockheads II! 

If you haven't been following Blockheads since the beginning, here's how it all began. There were six of us "dark" Moda designers who gathered at market to hatch a plan to offer a block-of-the-week to show how all of our fabrics played nicely together. Over 48 weeks, we had a great time, got to know each other better, and didn't want it to end. It was also inspiring to see so many of your blocks on Facebook. I could feel the creative juices pumping. This fall, the Blockheads book will be released featuring each of our finished quilts - plus a few extras - with all of the blocks. Martingale is doing a beautiful job publishing our group project. I can't wait to see it at market!

So what to do next? Moda asked each of the original 6 Blockheads' designers to ask a friend to join our group to make it even bigger and better. My choice was obvious - Barb & Mary of Me & My Sister Designs. The first time I met these ladies at market during setup, I was hot and sweaty and exhausted from weeks of preparations. They walked up to introduce themselves all cool and perky, their bubbly personalities lighting up the room. After resisting the temptation to smack the smiles and giggles right off their faces : ), we hit it off instantly. Whether we're visiting in our booths, or out at dinner, they make everything fun. Their bright fabrics and simple, but clever, designs are the perfect match, just like the two of them. You really can't help but smile, even if you are all sweaty.
 
( I enjoy these two so much I've invited them to come for a special event next summer at KTQ. Watch for more info here and on our website soon.)

 So, we're about a fourth of the way into the second series of blocks with 13 designers. This week and for the next several weeks, you'll receive instructions for two blocks. Here we go...

Blockheads II - Block #14 - Fidget Spinner by Lynne Hagmeier

My Fidget Spinner block was inspired by the craze last year when all the grankids had those little spinning finger gadgets - some whirred, some blinked with flashing lights, all of them were crazy annoying (I'm sure that was the point). My version uses simple rectangles and connecting corners to create an intricate-looking block that's easy to assemble.


KT fabrics are from Nature's Glory (Sept '18) and On Meadowlark Pond (Feb '19)

I chose red/tan/navy again for my block. To make the block like mine, you'll need 2 tans, a red and a navy. Cut A - (4) each navy and red; B- (6) of each tan and (4) navy. Follow the instructions HERE. I'll be watching on FB to see how you interpreted Fidget Spinner.

Blockheads II - Block #15 - Corner Pocket by Me & My Sister Designs

Billiards, anyone? I'll have to check out Barb & Mary's blog to see if pool was their inspiration for Corner Pocket. To continue with my red/tan/navy themed blocks, I chose to piece Barb & Mary's block in red & tan. Find instructions for their block HERE.



See you next week when we'll have two more blocks to add to your growing pile. Check out what the rest of the Blockhead II bunch are up to this week.

  9. I am bold enough among many others to state that there is now a potent cure to this sickness but many are unaware of it. I discovered that I was infected with the virus 3 months ago, after a medical check-up. My doctor told me and I was shocked, confused and felt like my world has crumbled. I was dying slowly due to the announcement of my medical practitioner but he assured me that I could leave a normal life if I took my medications (as there was no medically known cure to Herpes). I went from churches to churches but soon found that my case needed urgent attention as I was growing lean due to fear of dying anytime soon. In a bid to look for a lasting solution to my predicament, I sought for solutions from the herbal world. I went online and searched for every powerful trado-medical practitioner that I could severe, cos I heard that the African Herbs had a cure to the Herpes syndrome. It was after a little time searching the web that I came across one Dr Itua(A powerful African Herbal Doctor), who offered to help me at a monetary fee. I had to comply as this was my final bus-stop to receiving a perfect healing. My last resolve was to take my life by myself, should this plan fail. At last it worked out well. He gave me some steps to follow and I meticulously carried out all his instructions. Last month, to be precise, I went back to the hospital to conduct another test and to my amazement, the results showed that negative,Dr Itua Can As Well Cure The Following Desease…Cancer,Hiv,Herpes, Hepatitis B,Liver Inflammatory,Diabetis,Fribroid, Dercum,fibromyalgia,Get Your Ex Back,Als,SYPHILLIS,Genetic disease, Parkinson's disease.Fibrodysplasia Ossificans Progressiva.You can free yourself of this Herpes virus by consulting this great African Herbal Doctor via this e-mail: drituaherbalcenter@gmail.com or call and whatsapp him on +2348149277967 He will help you and his herb medication is sure. he has the cure on all disease .You can talk to me on INSTAGRAM..tashamoore219....
