Moda Block Heads 3-Blocks 40-42

Hey there….It’s been awhile since I have been here…my world is pretty crazy and I find that I wanted to take the time to come here…and do something that was familiar…I have posted some of my blockhead blocks in our facebook page, but I wish for life to have some resemblance of pre-corona virus…and that will be a little blogging every week…so hopefully I can accomplish that….

Today’s block is from Fig Tree Quilts…click HERE to get the pattern and see Joanna’s gorgeous block you will need this in conjunction with my measurements below.

I did notice right away that Joanna’s block this week did not have 4″ measurements…so this was my version those doing the 4″ finished sizes.Here is my block all cut and ready to piece together after I trim my HSTs.

Block 41 was from Jen Kingwell…here block is SO BEAUTIFUL! y

you have to see it…but I could not do the applique with our 4″ size…so here is an alternate pieced version you can make for Block 41 if you desire.

Lisa Bognean/ Alt Block 41

Please forgive the rough directions…we are working on so many deadlines that there is no time for me to stop my graphic person to help me with this…I know you will understand…directions for block 41

Block 40 was from Janet Clare.…I simplified mine and I love it!

I want you all to know about my January 2021 Stitch Along!!!!  Read all about it below! It will be so much fun and you will not want to miss out!!

I am going to be talking about my new fabric, American Gatherings, (that releases out in January 2021), in the next couple of weeks, yes it’s that time again for more fabric!   But the very first thing I wish you all to know is I am going to be holding a Stitch Along featuring these 36 irresistible prints!  Please read the whole post to the end as there is some VERY important information all the way through…

 (Also…you do not have to be an American Quilter to make this quilt…if you wish to make it go right on ahead! Maybe you love American quilters, quilts or American designers…or for what ever reason you wish to make it you are welcome!!)

As a proud American Quilter I can’t think of a better way to show off my loyalty to you and my country.  The quilt will feature 15 blocks (finish about 70″x 80″) and we will release one block a week starting soon after the fabric ships for 16 weeks (3 months), the last week being finishing options….  Don’t miss out this fun event…be the first to order your Fat Quarter bundle HERE  so… you will be the first to receive it when it arrives!  Also this will start when Moda Block Heads 3 will be wrapping up…and our quilt can be finished in plenty of time for Spring/Summer!

The line features crisp reds, whites and blues, in true American colors…

Also take your pick between a navy or white setting/ borders & binding…You will need 4 yards…the choices I picked for us  are our Primitive Gatherings navy primitive muslin  which is not our darkest navy but more medium navy that will match these blues in the line for a darker quilt…the other option is an eggshell Moda grunge with white stars for a lighter finish to the quilt…I think both will be fantastic!

You can also pick out your backing  ahead as well. You will need 4 yards as well… I’d order 6 if you have any plans on making it bigger.

 Click HERE to see all the American Gatherings prints, to maybe pick your backing or order more for another project.

All the blue links will take you to the products that are mentioned just click them.  All items are pre-orders to ensure there is enough product available for our project come January 2021!

Because this will be a FREE pattern I will not be offering any of the products on sale. I am counting on you to participate and this line to be sold as fast as it comes in (like, Liberty Gatherings, the last one).   Primitive Gatherings will be taking this opportunity to donate $10 for every Fat Quarter bundle WE sell to Hogs for Heros…I will talk more about this organization and why I picked them.   Also, I personally am planning to donate a large portion of MY royalties from this fabric to Hogs for Heros as well, so by hosting this Stitch Along I am planning on this fabric line to be a HUGE success, but as always I cannot do it by myself…I will need you all to help make this happen!

You will be so happy you joined in!!!!

Lisa Bongean's 4" Moda Block Heads Block 34

Moda Block Heads 3-Block 34-Fulfillment!

It’ my week for Moda Block Heads…and I have made something I have never done before…I have made a 1″finished star for the center of the block…now before you think I am crazy and think there is no way….

Lisa Bongean- Moda Block Head 3- Block 34 Fulfillment

Try it or….just exchange it for a plain 1 1/2″ cut square where the star is…for the 4″ size…it would be 2″ for the 6″ blocks, 2 1/2″ for the 8″ blocks and 3 1/2″ for the 12″ blocks.

 

You all know how to do the triangles…and know I made them using my Primitive Gatherings Half Square Triangle Papers….

You will need: 1/2″ finished for 4″ block    3/4″ for 6″ blocks    1″ for 8″ block      1 1/2″ for 12″ blocks Triangle papers for these blocks sizes.

Click HERE to print Block 34!

Here is just how tiny my “test” center “block” is…Now.. is it perfect?…no…but I think it is acceptable considering it is 1″ finished!  Also…trim the seam allowance on the tiny center after it is stitched to 1/8″ on the stitched seams, for this tiny block if you are making the 4″ finished.

I can’t wait to see your blocks on the Facebook feed!!!!!

Now since I have you all here gatherings your block patterns there are a few things I hope to share with you if you hang around a bit and read about it…I would so appreciate it!!!

T-shirt Winner & MBH3-Block 32-Alternate!

Uneven 9 Patch Quilt Block a tutorial featured as part of the Block Heads quilting series by top US quilting blogger, Lisa Bongean

It’s Friday..and I can post my alternative block for Block 32!

I can tell by our MBH Facebook page that you all love to fuzzy cut….so the center of this star is the perfect place to find just the right fabric.  The reason this post is so late is because, I forgot about the other sizes than my 4″ blocks…so that is why…If you are behind I will post a new and better pattern for you to print later…if you are caught up and want the block now you get the sloppy copy…thanks for understanding…my graphic person does not work on Friday.

Pattern Link for 4″-Block 32-Alternate

We will be donating a portion of our American Gatherings fabric proceeds to Hogs for Heros, and $10 per FQ Bundle sold through our website.  Read more about it HERE!

Moda Block Heads 3 Quilt Along- Block 27- The Proposal

Uneven 9 Patch Quilt Block a tutorial featured as part of the Block Heads quilting series by top US quilting blogger, Lisa Bongean

Here is another great Quilt Block FOR OUR Moda Block Heads 3 QUILT ALONG PROJECT:  

The Proposal… BY JEN KINGWELL

THE PROPOSAL designed by Jen Kingwell-pieced by Lisa Bongean-Urban Farmhouse Gatherings fabrics by Moda

This Moda Blockhead 3-Block 27 was super fun to stitch! My block only took about 1/2 an hour to complete!  I tried to make it look like a sparkly big diamond!  Of course this diamond is all about the 4 c’s….cut-yes..I did lots of cutting when making this diamond, clarity– it was very clear that I love to stitch, carrot weight-this diamond is pretty small 4″, but it was made with so much love that is what really matters… and color-love those Urban Farmhouse Gatherings fabrics!….

Pattern Link for Block 27

Jen has a really cute story this week so make sure you visit her blog to read all about it….In honor of Jen & Richard’s Wedding Anniversary…here is our Wedding Picture!  Nick & I have been married 22 years! I know a lot of you know Nick from the quilt shows and from our LIVE videos…It’s never a dull moment….well, maybe sometimes when all he wants to do is hold the couch down and watch TV but only like fishing/hunting and now re-runs of sports…I cannot get him to watch a Netfix series….but that’s when I retreat to MY room, to STITCH!

Nick & Lisa April 18th 1998
We are discussing the fact that there were two State Troopers outside waiting for us…someday I will tell that story!
