Moda Blockheads Week #13

Block #13 - Patchwork Flower by Corey Yoder

Welcome to Corey! She's one of the new Blockheads this time around. It's great to have some new (dare we say "young") blood infused in this second series of blocks. Her Patchwork Flower at 6" x 18" is a fun addition to the assorted sizes of the other blocks. I chose to do just one version this week. It's a red/navy flower and will go with either my red/tan/navy or KT classic quilt plan. Made it, loved it, why make it difficult?

Moda Blockheads II - Week #12

Block #12 - Jace's Star by Lisa Bongean

Lisa has challenged us again with her delightful star named for her grandson. She's a fun grandma, I'm sure. Living by a lake offers many opportunities to be a star in Jace's eyes.

My two options for Blockheads II are red/tan/navy...

Block #12 - Jace's Star - KT red/tan/navy

...and classic KT. I merely swapped out the red for pumpkin for a fall look.

Block #12 - Jace's Star - KT classics

Many of the fabrics I'm using in the Blockheads II blocks are from a new KT fabric collection coming in September, Nature's Glory. Print the swatch chart below as a handy reference guide when shopping at your favorite quilt shop.

See you next week for a block from one of our "new" Blockheads!

Block #11 - Direction by Sherri McConnell of A Quilting Life

Sherri's headed in the right direction with this simple block of framed flying geese. There are a dozen ways to colorize her block to suit your style - or mood. I made one block in KT red/tan/navy (mostly Fresh Cut Flowers fabrics) and another in KT classics in my new Nature's Glory collection, coming next month to a quilt shop near you.

Flannel Days, Starry Nights

KT August Monthly Special

The new Country Road Flannels are here and we're so excited to share them with you. For July, we featured the Country Road Flannel Layer Cake and booklet to make your choice of two different projects - Rambling Road or Crossroads. Simple piecing + soft, cuddly flannel = the gift everyone wants for Christmas this year. It's not too late to order your flannel kit for either of these quilts in time for holiday gift giving.

Our KT August Monthly Special features this flannel star in five seasonal colorways. You're sure to find the perfect one for someone on your list. Kits are 20% off and include the Flannel Days, Starry Nights booklet FREE plus FREE SHIPPING! Go to for more information. Please call the KT Quilt Shop to order for Free Shipping

Joy quilted the Summer Evening flannel lap quilt without batting - just flannel backing - for a  lightweight, super cuddly quilt perfect for those summer nights on the porch with just a hint of a cool breeze. My grankids love the feel and weight of my flannel quilts with no batting. Our KT Country Road 108" wide flannel backing is due to arrive in September, just in time to finish your flannel quilts. Summer Evening flannel lap kit + booklet = $75 with FREE SHIPPING.

Autumn Days features a quarter square border in fall tones that have me wishing for bonfires, football games and crunching leaves. Autumn Days flannel kit + booklet = $80 with FREE SHIPPING.

Christmas Eve utilizes the reds, greens and tans in the Country Road Flannel collection for a quilt you can curl up with long after the holidays are gone. Christmas Eve flannel kit + booklet = $85 with FREE SHIPPING.

Winter Nights' frosty blues and tans are the perfect counterbalance to snowy winter days. We added flannel backing instead of batting for a heavier weight quilt that's still really soft and drapeable. Don't forget, we have Country Road 108" wide backing coming soon! Winter Nights flannel kit + booklet = $80 with FREE SHIPPING.

Chilly Spring Mornings beg for a warm, huggable quilt to wrap up in your favorite chair. Your first cup of coffee or tea will taste even sweeter. 
Spring Morning flannel kit + booklet = $75 with FREE SHIPPING.

Don't miss our KT August Special featuring Country Road Flannels and the Flannel Days, Starry Nights quilt kits and booklet. Comment here to win a Flannel Days, Starry Nights booklet and box of flannel scraps to add to your stash. 

Moda Blockheads II - Week #9

Block #9 - With a Plus by Laurie Simpson

Welcome to Laurie! She's one of the new additions to Blockheads II. We're delighted to have her perspective this time around. Although her With a Plus block is simply pieced, I can see it as a scrappy charm quilt - half light/half dark blocks. I have a teen grandson who would love it.  It's on my to-do list.

Find Laurie's With a Plus pattern for HERE.
