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…


Block 44MBH44

Anyone want my scraps from this BlockHead quilt when I am finished?  Comment and I will pick a winner!

All for now…got a lunch date with my Sister…still seams odd!  LB

    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).

    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?

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.
