Moda Block Heads 3 Quilt Along Project Block 15 featured by top US quilting blogger, Lisa Bongean

My 4″ STARRY EYED- quilt block was made with   Urban Farmhouse Gatherings

How do you pick your fabrics for your blocks FOR YOUR QUILT ALONG PROJECT?

I started with two Layercakes…one of Urban Farmhouse & Indigo Gatherings

I have my unused 10″ layercake squares to the left…I have all the fabric that I have used in previous blocks in baggies sorted by color.  So I try to use a new fabric that I have not used before and then if I need just a little something I use one of previously used fabrics…

I start cutting and then laying out my pieces from A-to how many letters there are in the block…

  1. I have printed my blocks but have not started them. We are in the process of packing up the house to sell. Most of my sewing room is in storage. I only kept out my PG Wool box to work on and a box of scraps for some scrappy 1” strip courthouse steps blocks I have been working on for a couple years.

  2. Sooooo far behind! I’ve been quilting a queen size quilt for my granddaughter in between mask making sessions.

  3. I am caught up with all the blocks so far…making them in 4 inch. Most I have had to made twice…sadly. Sure does give me some challenge to look forward to on Wednesdays, though! Would love to win the book download!

  4. Lisa, I am ready to start #15. I could not use one of the previous and I have substituted one with a variation. I am really loving the blocks and did my first foundation piecing and hoping we will have more applique. Thanks for a chance to win the book. Paula in KY

  5. I am doing mostly 6” blocks and am a little beyond! Some of the blocks were not my style so I went back to your Triangulations quilt blocks and have added some of them instead.

  6. I have made 9 out of the 15 blocks available thus far! I am doing a small 6 inch block quilt in bright colors and a large 12” block quilt in neutrals!

  7. I am about a month behind. Got sick and been making masks and medical caps. Have last week’s cut and ready to sew.

  8. Sadly, I haven’t started yet, but am looking forward to when I do!! Thank you for the beautiful blocks.

  9. I haven’t started yet but I am collecting the patterns. I am in the middle of finishing a project. I love your block!

  10. Always look to your blog first – love your fabrics. I’m actually up to date! Using both of your fabric lines too.

  11. I have followed along and can’t wait to see the various finished projects! Way to go everyone! 🙂

  12. SO glad I have not started yet because your advice about planning out the use of the different fabrics to get a great balance is just the best ever!

  13. I haven’t started yet, but am considering it now that I have some extra time. Love all the different blocks!

  14. I haven’t started yet since I am finishing up some other projects. Love the Blockheads and seeing all the different blocks.

  15. Truthfully, I haven’t started yet but am collecting the patterns. I’m presently a “wounded quilter”, but hope to be up to snuff shortly – can hardly wait to be honest. Love all the little tips, colors & patterns you share with all of us, thanks so much! Keep up the great creative work.

  16. I started with block #11 & played catch-up for a bit.. I now have 12 blocks completed 🙂
    PS – My Block Heads colors are red & cream, so I LOVE your new Redwork Gatherings line;-) 😉

  17. Haven’t started yet as I’ve been making masks for our church here in Temecula but I’m itching to get started 😊💕

  18. Unfortunately I haven’t started yet as I’ve been making donation quilts, QOV quilts and masks. Maybe one of these days….

  19. So far, I’ve printed my blocks and chosen my fabrics. Any forward motion is progress, right?!

  20. I haven’t started yet but they are on my list. Just finished masks to donate and am working on a 20 year UFO!!

  21. Okay, honestly I have not made any of the blocks yet! You asked. I love this block today, but I think it has to do with the colors you used. I have been making masks, but will start on the blocks soon. Corey showed her finished Blockheads quilt and I love all of those blocks. I like your second fabric choice for your block! Thank you Lisa

  22. It’s a dream. I love blockheads because I see them as being a perfect way to use scraps. One of the things that has always frustrated me in sewing garments were the scraps that were inevitable. Sometimes you get lucky and can use them in another garment but often they are just too small but not too small for blockheads. I have scraps from sewing for my children years ago…I have their beloved themed sheets…I cant wait to make them each a quilt from the scraps I couldnt bear to part with.

    Have a wonderful day!!!

  23. Thanks for sharing how you pick your fabrics. I’m starting blockheads and I was just thinking last nite how I’m going to choose. I’m using Indigo Gatherings. Everything is starched and ready to go. Take care of yourself.

  24. I love these blocks, however I am an observer this time. I have sooo many others started this is a “piece full” break when I can to keep up with the group. Another time.

  25. Wow! Thanks, Lisa, for showing us how to change up a block simply by changing one fabric color! I have layer cakes of both Indigo Gatherings and Farm House Gatherings, but haven’t made one block yet! Too busy making masks. I need to get with it!

  26. I honestly have not started. I ordered a fat quarter bundle and fabric while wintering in Florida, after seeing the first block I knew it was not the right fabric. I love Lisa’s and I should just copy her every week. I would be so happy and love the quilt. Hindsite…

  27. I am a beginner and am enjoying seeing all this beautiful work!! Everyone is so talented!! Hoping to start 1 of these dsys!

  28. I am a loser, I have not started mine yet. So many quilts, so little time LOL They are all beautiful, and some day I need to get at least one block head quilt done. So if I won the book, it would be a great start.

  29. I just got home from work and I’m going to print #14 and #15. I love the colours you used in this latest block.

  30. I get them done every week. I did the last blockheads but didn’t keep up. I finally got it done but this time I have a better plan. Sheltering at home has helped I am sure

  31. Every week I can’t wait to see your tiny blocks- truly droolworthy! I am using your Indigo and Farmhouse Gatherings with some treasured Lakehouse Gatherings too! I got 10 block made and then got sidetracked making 100 masks! Hope to get back to it soon! 🙂

  32. Printing and collecting the weekly patterns fir future use. Love seeing everyone’s fabric choices and interpretations!

  33. I have three blocks done, but my sewing kind of went by the wayside when my mother entered hospice and we are now dealing with her estate details. Any sewing time i do get has been spent making masks. I am collecting all of the patterns for the blocks and hope to return to it soon.

  34. Printing the weekly patterns, but still trying to decide on fabrics…..thank you for a chance to win a copy of this book.

  35. I haven’t started yet because I am finishing a king size quilt and have been making masks. I have been downloading the patterns for the near future.

  36. Enjoy perusing your blog and wish thank you for all the happiness you bring to us quilters!

  37. I am loving BH3. I can’t believe it, but I am all caught up. I have made some BH friends on last year project and been encouraged from their tips. I am mostly using bits and pieces of left over fabric.

  38. Thanks for the extra bit of info on the planning out of ones fabric for a block All those things that a first timer is unsure of. I have many questions I’m looking forward to the answers over this weekly block along. One can buy books but an as close to in person as we can get right now on all these little hints and photos of the stages are great !

  39. I’m behind as usual but I can’t print my patterns out because I’m out of ink and that’s not essential. Oh well, been working on MBH2 instead!

  40. I paused at Block 3 and be an making face masks. I am printing the block pattern. Hoping to get back to this pr.oject soon. Take care!

  41. I just learned about Blockheads, so I haven’t started yet. I’m intrigued, but sewing masks at the moment. Hopefully I can get back to quilting soon.

  42. Ummm. I just discovered that there was this thing going on! So I haven’t started but I plan to catch up this weekend!

  43. I am six behind but working on getting caught up today…..I am doing mine just like yours with the indigo and urban farmhouse fabrics ordered from you! I love them so far! I’ve never had one of those books….it looks yummy!

  44. Just have to complete number 15, playing around with my fabric choices . I love making the blocks and look forward to every Wednesday! Thanks so much!

  45. I’m enjoying seeing everyone’s weekly blogposts. Unfortunately I haven’t started Blockheads 3. I’m collecting patterns for another time, when life’s not so crazy.

  46. Your block is lovely! I just finished my 12th block. They are all so much fun to make. The book would be awesome to win.

  47. Honestly I only been enjoying everyone else’s blocks on Facebook. Hoping to start soon.

  48. It would be great to have this book as I almost finished Blockheads 1. Your layout designs would also be an inspiration as to finishing my quilt. Thanks!

  49. Your block is beautiful! I have not started yet but plan to do so after I finish some unfinished projects. Thank you for the opportunity to win this much loved book!

  50. This week I am actually caught up. I finished the last two weeks on Sunday and now can get busy on today’s block. I love both of your blocks, but the second one just pops! Thanks for sharing!

  51. I haven’t started my blocks, but I am printing them as they come out. So many quilt alongs available to staying home in quarantine quilters. But the MBH3 blocks are the most interesting, to me. Have to finish the quilt for my son, now dubbed The 1000 Day Quilt, before starting another quilt.

  52. I have saved the patterns to a flash drive–that’s it! I enjoy seeing the different blocks!

  53. I’ve been playing catch up after being sick and in the hospital. I have all done except #13 in both color ways I’m doing. Love blockheads and especially now my applique group is keeping in touch comparing and giving each other opinions on our blocks. We’ve been meeting for over 20 years! This is the longest we’ve gone without getting together…..

  54. I’m all caught up! It’s like I’m having a quilting marathon since I’m not able to work now lol

  55. Ooh, the blocks look soo pretty. I have to finish what I have started first, that way my head is clear and I can concentrate without thinking that I should be doing the others.

  56. 15 of the Blockheads 3 blocks downloaded and printed. Enjoying the blocks shared by others and marvel at their great works. Producing my blockhead 3 blocks remains only a vision so far for me.

  57. I am loving the designs this year. But I am in the middle of another quilt so I have not started them. I am enjoying all the blocks for this. Just beautiful.

  58. This is my first time participating in the Blockheads sew along and I am happy to say that I’m staying caught up! I can’t wait for Wednesday’s to see the new blocks. 😊

  59. I haven’t even started yet!! Too busy making masks, & need to finish up some other projects first!

  60. I’ve seen many Moda Block Head quilts and I adore them all. Sorry to say that I haven’t started this but it’s on my to do list…lol!

  61. I love your block! I just need to make this week’s block for this round 3 … now if we would talk about round 1 & 2 … let’s just say it’s still a work in progress;-)

  62. I learned to sew around a non bordered quilt before I send it to the quilter! I had a distortion problem once and now I know why!! Thanks. Kathleen

  63. I am up to block 15. I am making it in a 6 and 8” size. I didn’t make all the blocks, I skipped a couple, so on a few (that I really liked) made more than one size.
    I love your 4” blocks!

  64. I love seeing all the blocks and how different they look with the placement of color. I am printing off all the block patterns but haven’t started on them yet. Trying to get my sewing room organized so I can choose my colors. Thanks for offering this great collection of quilt blocks.

  65. This is my third Blockhead and I love them. I really like your block and agree with you about the contrast of your fabrics.

  66. I did the first BlockHeads quilt and won a first prize in The Sun Prairie quilt show! That is why I would love to win this book! I haven’t done any blocks for years 2 & 3! I always think about it though!

  67. I haven’t started yet, but am going to make Corey’s block today!

  68. I have been sewing masks now for 5 weeks, so I’m a little behind. I have printed the patterns and can’t wait to have the blocks on my design wall.
    Love reading your blog each week.

  69. Love your version of the block, and the tips on how you executed! Thanks for sharing. Would love to have the book to learn even more quilting techniques.

  70. I havent even started because i have so many things going on right now,but saving block patterns for a future date.

  71. Being honest here, haven’t started, but I am inspired to get it going! Thanks for all the photos, tips and advice.

  72. I love the Block Head Quilt Along. During Quarantine it is inspirational although I currently have trouble concentrating on much more than making masks for long term care facilities. Someday I will circle back and make the blocks.

  73. I didn’t get in on Block Heads one and would love to win the book. The second one I watched and this one I’m doing block 15 now.

  74. I hope to get started soon-been trying to pick six favorite blocks for a guild sampler challenge due in December.

  75. Started just a few weeks ago and have 3 12″ blocks and 2 8′ blocks with sashing complete. Having fun with my fabric now that I know my wild idea is working!!

  76. I haven’t started at all yet, but I do have all of my fabrics picked out! Love your quilts Lisa!! you like the teeny details too 🙂 Ever thought of making a Salinda Rupp quilt?
