BLOCKHEADS 2 Block #27

 You may have remembered this pull of fabric from my stash last month.  It's been going well and now I have some blocks....

The pattern is Indigo Revival and you can find it HERE in our Etsy shop.  The original quilt (which has always been a favorite) was in blue and cream and wall size.  I enlarged the pattern 150% to make it bed size.  The blocks now finish at 15" square and the original was 10" square.  It was easy to do, I cut my background blocks the new size and enlarged the 3 applique templates 150% on the copier.  (the other applique figures will be in the border). I loved the original in blues, but I like red too and the overflowing bins of red scraps helped me make up my mind.

I also have kept up on BLOCKHEADS 2 and this week's block is #27 by Lynne Hagmeier

The instructions are HERE 

Hope you are enjoying the fall weather (or spring for those of you in the southern hemisphere). I am sipping hot drinks and wearing sweaters. It's glorious. Bill and I are having our annual battle (eh, ......discussion) about temperature in the house. He's walking around with ALL of his clothes on and grumbling. He would like the furnace turned on. I am happy with the cool temps and all I have to decide is on what sweater I will wear today.   And there are always quilts to layer with. Lots of quilts. Layering is much more fun than central heating.

Laters,

Laurie

BLOCKHEADS 2 - Blocks 25 & 26

We're halfway through with the Blockheads 2 blocks with 25 & 26 - brought to you by Lisa Bonjean and Corey Yoder - instructions are HERE and HERE.  With half the blocks done, it's all downhill from here.  

Fall has been playing hide and seek here in Michigan. We had some lovely crisp, cool, windy days last week, but today we are back to a humid 80 degrees.  It looks like after a few days of storms, sweater weather really will be here.

I pulled out this sweet quilt a few days ago. It's called Summer Roses and was in this book - American Summer.

I have a sale on American Summer books in our Etsy store. You can find it HERE. The book has patterns for 2 quilts, 1 beach bag cooler, and many hooked rugs.

Laters,

Laurie

BLOCKHEADS 2 - Blocks 23 & 24

Oh, they may not be perfect, but good enough for me. There is a whole lot of pieces in these 6" blocks. I would recommend 1" finished HST papers for these guys.  I like to use Spinning Star Design papers, but there are lots of others out there.

These blocks are brought to you by Jo Morton and Sherri McConnell. You can find the directions HERE and HERE 

I just got back from Hearts to Holly in beautiful Charlevoix Michigan. I'm unpacked and ready to get back to work.  Fall has landed here and the t-shirts, the linen slacks, and the desktop fans have been put away for a few months.

I hope to have more for you next week.

Laters,

Laurie
