Moda Blockheads Week #21

Question of the Week:

Do you put labels on your quilts?
The correct answer is YES, of course, I'm very organized and every quilt is labeled. However, I fall down here pretty regularly. My piecers are trying to come up with a better plan for making sure the quilts we're rushing to complete before market have labels ready to go for the quilters. We'll see if it works. I love the new panel of labels by Moda with 51 different options by all the designers due in quilt shops next month. So fun! If that doesn't move me to act, nothing will!

Blockhead Block #21

Flying Geese Variation by Jo Morton
Jo's flying geese block offers more practice making these "fun"-ctional units that are so versatile. Kathy's traditionally pieced block is made with deep plums and tans for a dressed up block ready for afternoon tea. Click on the link above to find Jo's instructions on her blog. My layered patchwork version is all red scrappy with a neutral tan background. More of a blue jeans version of the block.

We eliminated a multitude of seams using the layered patchwork technique.

  1. I always say that I´ll label all my projects and after finished them I forget it. I hope that next year I add labels on all the my projects.
