WARNING…I kinda switched my block around a bit….not on purpose…but when you switch the background color…it kinda messes you up a bit…anyway…I am keeping it this way…I actually love it!!!! If you need to get the directions for this week block you need to pop on over to Betsy HERE…but while you are here you may want to read down to the end!
or here they are if you do not want to download them….

*F&G could be made using triangle papers ½” finished—remember 1 square of triangle paper makes 2 HSTs.

In honor of Moda Block Heads and the Sisterhood we share I am doing a give-away today…I was in California last week with Lissa Alexander, Tammy Vonderschmidt, Robin Pickens, Amy Mathey, Jen Kingwell and Joanna Figueroa. We had a very nice dinner on Friday night…Lissa signed books in my booth on Thursday and I managed to snag one for a give-away for you here and one for myself…Sold all the rest!!!! As you can see the cover is awesome!!! 12 quilts in here…a bunch from Lissa and then a few from 6 other designers….even one antique!!!
and here is a video of the quilts on display…in the book…
If you can’t wait to win one and you want to order your own copy of Sisterhood of Scraps click this link you will be ordering it from Primitive Gatherings…or if you would rather keep Amazon in business rather than our family business…click HERE…but just remember if we keep ordering things we can get at our quilt shops the quilt shops will go out of business… I will pick the lucky winner of Lissa’s book on Sunday! I hope you win it! Thanks and happy week three of MBHs…xxx Lisa…
