Week 10 of BLOCKHEADS 2

How can it be week 10 already? 

This week's block is courtesy of Jo MortonJo will show her block - back and front and you can see how she pressed the seams. They will be immaculate. I would show you how I pressed my seams, but it might demoralize a few of you.  How are they pressed? Whatever way seemed (heh) to be the less violent.  Some seams are pressed to the side, some are pressed open, some defy logic and do both.

You know the drill by now..... this is the block in Minick and Simpson scraps.

This is the block in Bella Solids.

 Here are all the Minick and Simpson blocks so far.

And these are the Bella Solids.  

This happened in the studio this week. I purchased the jumbo scissors and the thimble wall pocket at an antique auction. Why? Because they were fun. The 24" long scissors were once part of a Haberdasher's sign.  I'm picking out just the right wall space for them.

It's my turn for my first BLOCKHEADS2 block -
This is the red, white and blue block.  It's fast and easy and YOU'RE WELCOME!

This is the Bella Solid Version .  The directions for this block can be found HERE. 

I've been a fan of this little simple block for awhile. It was used as a filler block on my Portage Lake Block of the Month Sampler.  At that time, I got an nice email from yardgrl60 on instagram.  She said she loved making the block and I should think about making a quilt just out of that block. Great idea I thought!  So I did........

Yardgrl60 was right - it was fun!

Anyway....... here are my Minick and Simpson blocks so far

and here are the Bella Solid blocks so far.  

Make sure to check out all the other versions on this block on the Moda Blockheads2 facebook page.
