Blockheads 3 - Week 13


I hope you are all doing well - physically, emotionally, and spiritually.

In some ways - things are exactly the same.  I get up and go to the studio and work on quilts, patterns, or shipping out parcels.  I have good company while working.....
Gibby and Cassie like hanging out on the studio ottoman and watch the world go by.  The world is a bit slower right now.

In other ways - things are completely different and everyday poses a new challenge. Today's challenge is making a bandana headband to keep the hair out of my eyes :)

And finally..... what you are here for - this week's Blockhead block - courtesy of Jen Kingwell


I've been having some fun coming up with Quarantine Playlist songs. Today's additions are Alone Again, Naturally by Gilbert O'Sullivan and 30 Days in the Hole by Humble Pie - both favorites of my long ago youth.  What are your Quarantine songs? 

And then there's this........

Pretty block! I need to prepare my brain for FPP. But I usually do well if I make sure and cut my fabric pieces very generously. I am going to make the 6" version. The song that pops into my mind is I Think We're Alone Now by Tiffany. LOL

Thank you, Laurie! I'm willing to try paper piecing on this block and I love your color choices. I also appreciated the video clip of the orchestra playing one of my favorite symphonies--a great start to the day.

The song that I think of is "In my Room" by the Beach Boys. Loved "Bolero".

Hearing Bolero reminds me of the absolutely astounding performance of Torvill and Dean in the 1984 Olympics to this music - thank you for the memories!

Thank you, Laurie! I love Bolero and really enjoyed this “self-isolated” version!

PS the block looks great, too ��

Your pups look so comfy! My quarantine song is "All By Myself" by Eric Carmen.

Love your Block! I haven't tried paper piecing yet. I'm going to have to give in 😆
