Block #52 - Scrappy Checkerboard by Corey YoderCorey brings us the final block of the Blockheads II series. Simple 4-patches within a 9-patch are fun and easy. The perfect end to 52 weeks of blocks. I chose a color placement similar to the pattern using my red, tan and blues from a new line, Milestones, showing at Spring Market.

I've been working on a layout for my blocks (if I ever get them pieced) and have settled on using a neutral tan sashing between some of the blocks for separation. I love how the red/tan/blue of the different fabric lines is all coming together but I felt like it needed some breathing room between some of the busier blocks. This quilt is so fun with all the assorted block sizes this time around. I still have a few to add - and will probably rearrange a dozen times, but I'm loving this scrappy project.
I hope you all have enjoyed Blockheads II. It's been a blast!
If you love a block-of the month like I do, be sure to stay tuned for the reveal of my 20th anniversary quilt later this month. I'm celebrating 20 years of designing fabric with Moda and wanted to do it up right. Twenty blocks over 10 months with 2 months to finish. Plan to piece along with me in 2020!
Be sure to see what the other designers are up to this week. I'm sure alot of them actually have a quilt finished to show you!
