Moda Block Heads-Catching up, as promised! Blocks, 30, 50, 45, 44, 49!

Time to get our Block Head quilt done!!! Here are 5 blocks from yesterday!  I bet some of you thought I was not going to finish/show these…wrong-o…I am proud FINISHER!  But I know my limits…so now that I am home for 5 weeks…this will get done before I go to Quiltstock & Restore!

Block 30…I cut the center strip the wrong size…so I am going to try and fudge this one in a bit…18″ should be no problem…

  1. I am looking forward to your finished quilt. I am always so inspired by your creations and have several of your Summer Block of the Week projects. You sure know how to feed my love of scrap quilts.

  2. I would love to have your scraps. I’m proud of you for finishing the project.

  3. LOVE love love the “Up North” pillow! That is EXACTLY what I want to do…return to Colorado from Houston!!

  4. Gray is my new favorite color – but have always loved neutrals. Would love to have your scraps! And as a side note, I used your Blockheads 2 layout for one of my colorways – turned out so nice!

  5. You are an inspiration. Thank you for being out there. If you choose me for your scraps, that would be awesome.

  6. I know your quilt will be fantastic! I love blues and would love to have your scraps!

  7. I’d love your scraps. How did you get scraps? Totally need them.
    Please pick me!

    Thank you

  8. What a silly question. I suspect everyone would like your scraps… count me in that group, too! Your blocks have been inspirational and I enjoyed the Moda Blockheads sew-along.

  9. Scraps-YES!!!! I would love to have them. I LOVE scraps and especially from other quilters. I think as quilters, we tend to buy fabric with a particular look that we each like. BUT, it would be nice to try new or different fabrics from someone else’s stash. Thank you for sharing (with whomever you pick).

  10. I love love love the colors you have used….up here in the Pacific NW Woods, I am known as the Scrap queen and make children and family charity quilts with most……I have a pile headed now to a roux who will pass them out the children and families in limbo in the border detention camps

  11. What a treat it would be to have your scraps in one of my projects from Primitive Gatherings!! Love your blocks, Lisa! Thank you for all you do to help us sew beautiful things.

  12. Your fabrics are great, so I would love your scraps! Thanks for the opportunity. What a great story about gaining a sister! So happy for you!

  13. Yea, a finish, great job! I would love to play with your scraps, you have such beautiful fabrics!

  14. I love the colors and the simplicity of the blocks! Trying to figure out how to use scraps from my quilts is challenging and fun! Your scraps would be a wonderful gift!

  15. I love those blocks! I would love to have the scraps! Thanks 🙏🏽!
    You are super fast!

  16. I would love to have the scraps! Thank you for sharing so much with us! Enjoy the time with your sister… so special!

  17. Who wouldn’t love your scraps and your talents? I would even save you the postage and drive up to Wisconsin and finally visit your store. I could stop and see my grandsons to and fro.

  18. Enjoy catching up on your Sister Time. So happy for you! I would love to be challenged by your fabric scraps.

  19. I must have had my head in the dirt but I just recently became aware of the Block Heads. After many years as a hand pieced I’m trying to learn machine work and techniques. I can’t seem to get any of the directions to printout. Help please! Thanks.

  20. Your pallet for this quilt is wonderful. I would love to play with your scraps. Thank you for sharing your finishes and your heart touching story of your new sister. I hope you enjoy your lunch and many more over the years.

  21. Happy to hear that I’m not the only 1 who can fall behind on a project because of other obligations besides eating & sleeping. I would love some PG scraps for a project, would you like some of mine? Is there a scrap exchange group where East meets West, North meets South or we exchange counter clockwise?

  22. I would love to have your scraps. I’m making my blocks from the PG kit so your scraps would work with mine.

  23. Would love your scraps! Can’t wait to see your finished quilt from your fabrics.

  24. Love seeing your blocks and as usual I love your fabric placement. I don’t know how you get half of what you do done! You Rock! Hope you had a wonderful lunch with your sister. It’s never too late to make memories ;-D

  25. I do! I do! I’m queen of scraps. I have more scraps than quilts, and I can never get enough. I take them and make up things as I go, and proudly feel like I have made several pretty quilts (and unique) by just “playing.” Pick me! Pick me! I’ll share a scrappy quilt with a charity.

  26. Wonderful to finish things!! My theme for this year – finish what I start !!!! I would love to play with your scraps. Thank you for offering them to us.

  28. I would LOVE to have your scraps! One’s woman’s junk is another woman’s treasure. 😂

  29. Lisa, I would love any and all of your scraps. I collect everyone’s scraps at any retreat that I go to. Scraps make wonderful utility quilts that go on the tops of my furniture or lap quilts for the grands to wrap up in.


  30. The blues and grays are beautiful. I would love to make something with the scraps! I am glad you are welcoming your sister into your life.

  31. I would really appreciate your scraps. I have to cut yardage to make strings and strips for any and all my projects.

  72. You always amaze me with how much you accomplish. And yes, of course, I would love to have your scraps. Maybe a little of your talent will have rubbed off on the scraps.

  73. Just finished my Blockheads 2 using your layout, loving it! To have your scraps would be divine!!! I am sure I can make something maybe a start on Blockheads 3

  74. So happy that you and your sister have found each other. Such a heartwarming story.

  75. Are you kidding me!! I would take your scraps from any quilt!!! I love your fabric/patterns and quilts

  76. I would love those scraps for my “collection”. That’s a new term we learned from you on our tour of the warehouse. Thanks so much. Your company is an inspiration and I was impressed with your philosophy about supporting quilt shops. Thanks again.

  78. I started following the Moda Block Heads II, but….. well life took over! Am anxiously waiting for the book to come out! Always love the color pallet you choose. Scraps are the best because they can fit in almost anywhere.

  79. Lisa, I would love some of your scraps, but mostly, have fun with your sister!

  80. Hi Lisa, I’d loved to have your scraps from BH2. Hope you have a great lunch with your sister! Thank you for sharing your scraps.

  81. Would love your scraps! I am so happy you found your sister. My husband was adopted in 1965 as an infant. He so wants to find his biological siblings……jmh

  82. Oh, Anyone would be lucky to receive even some of your scraps….love your color choices. Thanks for the chance to win some.
    I like your plans for your blockhead block setting too. Thanks for sharing your work and all of your inspiration!

  83. Would be thrilled to get your scraps!
    Your blocks look great! Have a fun time with your sister.

  84. I love the colors in your blocks. Beautiful! And I think I would use your scraps in either a baby quilt or to make some pin cushions. Who knows, maybe both! Oh, by the way… do you have any choice in the automatic ads that appear at the end on your blog? I was looking at the tiles of upcoming posts and there was a worm or snake at the bottom, advertising “which vegetable not to buy”. Ick! Just thought I would ask.

  85. Your blocks and fabrics are beautiful and anyone would be honored to be the recipient of your scraps. 🤗
