Moda Blockheads…Block 47

Today’s block…second to the last…I know…all good things must come to an end…this is my last block…it is called Starry Nine Patch and can be printed by clicking here:_Starry9Patch

I was able to “fussy cut” a small thread spool in my center square…This fabric is from my Needle & Thread Gatherings fabric line that is now in stores!!! Click HERE to see some of the quilts and fabrics…Click HERE to go to our website if you have to have some of it!!!

I want to thank all of you who are making these blocks with us and making our Stitch Along and our Facebook group so much fun!!!

I want to encourage you to sign up for my blog and see what happens next for one…I am planning a 49th block (as my quilt is set 7×7 with 49 blocks)and it is a beauty (the block has 100 pieces)!!!…I would also love to have you all here as I am planning another Stitch Along similar/but different to Blockheads and Triangle Gatherings…so stay tuned it will be coming soon…I know some of you have gained a new found confidence in piecing and if you wish to continue I am sure I can come up with some more challenges for us all to become better quilters!!!

I am finally home from a couple of weeks in sunny California where we worked hard and had lots of fun…both in my sewing groups at the shop and at the Road to Cali show…it was nice to see all of you again…I talked with many of you and met some new friends as well…

This week’s question….January 24 – Now that we’re nearing the end… if you could start your blocks and quilt over again, is there anything you’d have done different?  

Answer….NO…I love the way mine is going to turn out…It will be a labor of love and I can’t wait now for it to be finished and quilted when it  really comes to life…and then to show you the finished result…it is always difficult to come up with something that has not been done before with 6″ blocks…so that is the next challenge….I think we will be sharing the settings on Jan 31st!!!

Sorry for the short post….all for now…LB

Please visit all the other’s blogs to see their blocks:

    Hi there Lisa I have enjoyed doing your block designs and thankyou for inspiration.
    I think I could have planed my colour selection better as they are very random which will make putting my quilt colour together difficult – well I’m a newbee and have looked forward everyweek to Wednesdays.

    I have the Needle and Thread Gatherings in both Fat Quarters and Charm Pack! So excited there will be a 49 from you! You have been amazing throughout this journey and have taught me so much, along with the other designers and the members of the group. So thankful for everything!

    I appreciated the blocks you kindly designed as alternates for the applique blocks. They were delightful additions and helpful for the unskilled applique quilters among the blockheads followers. I learned so much from seeing the block interpretations from the block designers… color, contrast, variations, pressing tips, and so much more. Thanks!

    Lisa, beautiful blocks and sharp points. That is my challenge, keeping those points. Looking at your blocks it appears online that you have a generous 1/4+ beyond the points/edges. Is that the trick? How do you do that?
