I'm A Blockhead!

No, you're a blockhead!!!......   Am I giving you the classic Charlie Brown put down? Or am I flashing back to a 40 year old Saturday morning tv commerical? 
Maybe, but it's really something much more enjoyable.  It's THIS Blockheads....

Yes, the folks from Moda Fabrics are doing it again and this time they've lowered their standards and they let me play along :)

Today is the start of a weekly, year-long adventure in quilt making.  The blocks have all been designed and there is a variety in sizes.  Week 52 will have us piecing them altogether (Yes! a plan!) with no sashing and quick seams.  p.s. I've seen the final rendering and you will be THRILLED.

So, run to your stash and start picking fabrics.  I've had several baskets, bins, (boxes, trunks, moving containers) out because I have several long term projects going.  Here are a few sneak peaks of those other quilts.....

So, it was just a reshuffling of fabric and I have Block 1 - designed by Lynne Hagmeier of Kansas Troubles - and I came up with this....

But having 3 quilts in progress - all using the same scrap bin (a great scrap bin, but a bit redundant none the less) made we want to venture in a new direction.  My friend Carrie at Moda - The Cutting Table Blog posted a lovely bundle recently.  I swooned.
Of course, I had to dive in.  This is BLOCK 1 in this lovely Bella Solid palette.  
All the other lovely colors will show up eventually.  Just keep watching!

Follow all the designers on Instagram and the Facebook page dedicated to Block Heads - 2

and one last quilty thing....... look at what THE Anna Wintour wore yesterday to a gala...

Yes! a couture dress made like an antique crazy quilt.  
Quilts - they are a hot topic right now!
