Moda Block Heads 2 Finishing…

Today Corey’s block 52 will post!!It is the final block to the mystery...click here to go and print your block 52!  We are all amazed at how fast these weeks fly by…kind of scary???

I have been thinking hard about this quilt and how I wanted to finish it…so I have come up with a little tiny twist that I will be sharing the directions (measurements) for while I am putting mine together, but most of you can probably figure it out…for those of you who cannot, I will get to it…I promise…I will be posting my blocks that I have not yet completed here and promise to finish this quilt…but my schedule is (still) crazy the first half of the year…after Quilt Market it will be much more relaxed than it is now…but here is a peek at what I have come up with for the finishing…I will be plugging my colored blocks into it, but as you can see I just used the blocks moda supplied to see how it will work…and this gives you the idea of how we separated them…it will finish 80″x 86″ as is…if you need it bigger you can add a border…6″ border will give you 92″x 98 so adjust as needed as well…just keep following my blog to not miss anything!!!!

Moda Block Head 2- Block 51

Hey Everyone!!!

I am praying I will not screw this up…I am in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean on my way to the Azores…then Gibraltar UK, two stops in Spain- then Italy…14 days to get there…and my Block Head is posting during this time…I am sure it will post early as we are a couple of hours ahead of the US…but I’m sure at this point what’s the big deal with when it posts…

Here is block 51-Power Star

I guess 8 stars total…this is not an easy block because it has to be put together into rows…but with planning it is done quite nicely…
