Week 48…the last (but certainly not least) block is from Carrie Nelson…called Harmony! Go to the Moda blog for the pattern.
Question of the week… – Since we’re sharing settings… ‘fess up. Is your quilt finished? Or do you just have blocks and a plan?
Well…so glad you asked…because YES…mine is finished and off to thequiltedpineapple.com for quilting!!! Linda will do her magic on it and it will really come to life!!!
Today is a special day…we get to reveal our settings…Here is my plan …Lisa-blockheads-layout
I used this bella solid for my setting/sashing and borders it is the closest match with the creams in my Moda lines…I didn’t not piece my borders…I cut them lengthwise and used 6 yds (this is a little generous) of fabric for the HST border around each of the 6″ blocks, 2″ star cornerstone backgrounds, sashing between blocks and borders. My quilt finishes 88″x 88″
So…how about a peek? Wait…I forgot …I have 49 blocks…I apologize for not have a pdf of the 49th block….my graphic designer is on vacation this week…but here are the numbers to make the block:
Make 5- 2″ finished stars- the directions are in my setting directions above(the same as the sashing stars) Page 2.
Then make 16-1″ HSTs…make 4 pinwheel blocks, the block is shown here with the 1″ HST’s around the 6″ blocks that are part of the setting…I thought I would show you this up close…so now my 6″ blocks are 8″finished- 8 1/2′ before they are sewn in…
The quilt went together pretty fast…I pressed the long row seams open.
I hope my setting inspires you when planning your quilt finishing…I know I have some intricate parts…more HSTs and tiny star cornerstones…but I strive to make quilts that are different and look like they were thought out beyond just adding sashing’s and plain cornerstones…not that there is anything wrong with that but just trying to give you more of a challenge…you did well my friends…I loved seeing you stretch your abilities while making some of my harder blocks here in blockheads…the FB group was really fun!!!
piece on my friends….Lisa
