Moda Blockhead Block 15

Today’s  block is Jo’s– T Block……I stitched these blocks last night at Retreat with an AWESOME bunch of ladies sewing their hearts out…Its hard not sewing in your own space, so do not look too close at these blocks…

Go here to get the pattern...Jo’s Blog


The question of the week…June 14 – Is there a quilter whose work always inspires you?  I am inspired by so many quilters and students to name…each time I look at a quilt, I’m inspired about something…They speak to me…no seriously they do…My students are always making me think about things that could be done next time….Here’s a few that I feel have inspired me on my way to  becoming a  professional quilter in no particular order…Jan Patek & Linda Brannock…Sue Garman…Jo Morton…Bonnie Hunter…Sandy Gervais, Cheri Saffiote- Payne, Jeana Kimball…I know I probably forgot a bunch but these are the first ones off the top of my stuffed up head…Don’t know if I caught something on the plane or if the air/foliage  in CA bothers me…so I’m outa here for now…take care my friends…LB

triangle gatherings…block 42 & 43


We had a great Summer weekend!!! Luke & Brooke & Corey were home…Jace and Lauren were over and we just had some stay at home fun..I did manage to sneak in a little stitching but not much…I have some deadlines I’m working on and then the SBOW is starting so it seems like I always have something that has to be done…but for some reason lately I will take some days off and not enter the work realm…and then it’s back to reality!!

Time to pick up my sewing room…so I can think straight!!!

Have a nice night…LB


moda blockheads…block 13


I don’t know about you but are the weeks flying by fast???  I am still not caught up…ok…I might have taken a few days off over the weekend but holy cow…seems like its always Tuesday and I have to get the Blockhead blocks done!!!   But this weeks block is from Lynne from Kansas Troubles Quilters…The Bowtie Quartet!!! Super sweet!…Click HERE to get the pattern from Lynne’s blog..I made my block a little different…just added 1 1/4″ squares to the light squares by stitching across them and then pressing them back..trim away the excess and then stitch the blocks together…Here are both my versions…

I have had lots of practice making bowties with this quilt…These are 2″ bowties, so fun so cute!!!  We did this as a Summer BOW…go see what this years pieced SBOW is!!!  Click HERE

This week the questions is…What is the best tip you ever learned?  I really don’t know when I learned it but I love pressing my seams open especially when stitching little pieces!!!

I know I promised to do an alternative to block 10… a pieced version…I am still working on Jan’s appliqué block…so I’m hoping it will be done by next Wednesday…but…I did get the pieced one done…Click to print Alternate Block 10

This block again will be a little bit of a challenge but it is so worth it!!! Take your time and have some fun!!! Lots of little pieces for a 6″ block!!

Make sure you go and see the other bowtie blocks…I bet Betsy has another cool mini too for you!!!

triangle gatherings…blocks 39, 40 & 41…


I hope you all are enjoying your Holiday weekend…and if it is not a Holiday weekend for you then you need to make it one anyway…as all weekends should be fun..

It’s a rainy morning here so I had a chance to sneak in my sewing room and get three blocks done…now we are back on schedule…Click here to print Block 39Click here to print Block 40Click here to print Block 41PaPa and I had “little man” for a couple of days…and boy did we have some fun…fishing….and he was reeling in his own fish by the time he had to leave..

…playing…planting flowers…well…I planted flowers while the little monkey decided he wanting his “light up” fish from his bath to swim in the water fall… we went shopping for a kiddie pool…

and when he spotted this there was no way MiMi was going to break his heart and not bring it home for him!!!

We baked “yummies” (cookies) and the went for a boat ride…well maybe a boat nap…Still a couple more days to the weekend…so we’ll see what more fun we can have!!!  Hope you “create” some fun of your own…whether in your sewing room or out with your families and friends!!!

Lots of fun making this one…it was a little harder picking fabrics on this one…so I can’t wait to see what you all do!!

Here is my Moda Designers Block using everyone’s fabrics…

Then the patriotic version…Yay…I got them both done!! but…I know I still have week 10 and one of the patriotic versions of 11 to do yet…and I worked on typing the pattern for alternate pieced version for 10 today…

May 24 –  What is your favorite quilt pattern ever that you didn’t design – as in, the one you wish you’d designed?

I love the “Swoon” pattern by Camille for a pieced quilt…I lust after that quilt…we have made many versions of it in our shop…one was even flannel…and sold many many patterns…here is one of them made with reproduction fabrics…I also love patchwork swoon”…so beautiful!

Hope you all have a great HOLIDAY weekend!!! Make sure you stitch or do something for yourself!!!
See all the other versions of Carries Block on the other Moda Designers blogs…

triangle gatherings…blocks 37 & 38


I am so happy to be home for three weeks!!! before I have to go to the CA store…but that’s like going home only hotter!!!! I spent some time outside today…We have two nesting families….our Mourning Dove who am assuming is the same one we had with the old house…if you look close you can see her head….And then we have a nesting Robin…who we tried very hard to deter from building her nest, but being gone a  week,  we came home to this…      Then we have a pair of Mallard Ducks hanging around close to the house and when I tried to photograph them the wind took the door and slammed it so I did not get their pic…so it’s a very fun to watch all the bird action going on here…St. Louis was a blast…which I will be posting about this week…but first we need to catch up on our blocks….we are behind schedule a bit…so two today!!! My sewing room looks like a tornado hit it…but I can pick up tomorrow…right?  I’ll just shove the debris aside to get these blocks done!!!  Click here to print Block 37

Click here to print Block 38

So stitch these up fast…there will be more coming soon!!!

    Hi Lisa, I am inspired by many of the names on your list and saw two new ones I will be checking out. I am also inspired by you, Renee Nannerman, Brigitte Heitland, Maggie Bonanomi, Yoko Saito, and Velda Newman, just to name a few. I agree, way too many to name. Hugs, Jakey

    Your blog post has a smaller font and is hard for old eyes to read, if we bother.
