Hey everyone! Welcome to Moda Blockhead Wednesday! I hope you’re ready for Block 4 of MBH4 because it’s available now and ready for you! “Spinner“ was designed by Anne Sutton of Bunny Hill Designs. Driven by her love and passion for quilting, Anne runs her successful business Bunny Hill Designs out of a 400 sq ft loft in her home located in the California Bay area. In addition to being the owner and lead designer of Bunny Hill Designs, she also designs fabrics for Moda, along with patterns to coordinate with each of her fabric lines. Nice work Anne!
“Spinner“ is a quick and easy block to make. I really like this block because though the design is simple, it can have many different looks depending on your choice of fabric placement! I hope you all are having fun, and making steady progress on MBH4. I have my versions of “Spinner“ complete (and maybe a few more…but who’s counting?), take a look!
For the center of this block, I used a dark gray floral print from Urban Farmhouse II, and a much lighter gray small print on a white background (also from Urban Farmhouse II) combined with an Orange Bella Solid called, “Ochre” (#9900-79) for the outer pieces. I’m really liking how it looks! They remind me of the colorful springtime pinwheels we used to play with as kids. You can find all the information you need to make “Spinner“ on Anne’s blog page by clicking the link below!I will be posting a link on my blog every week for each new MBH4 block that’s released. Remember, you can also find all the MBH blocks that have already been posted by visiting the Moda Blockheads 4 Archive, which is updated every Wednesday and Friday.
Bonus blocks can be found on Moda’s Inspiration+Resources Center every four weeks on Fridays. If you’re having trouble keeping all the details straight you can also sign-up to receive Moda’s weekly Blockheads blog posts via e-mail, or by following the link below.
Ok – back to work! Wednesday is my designated mid-week day to really get down to business and get things done. I’ll admit that I try pretty hard to stay hidden away in my sewing room at home on Wednesdays because if I don’t, there are just way too many things pulling me in different directions. How can a girl get anything done?! I will see you all tomorrow at 1PM CST during, “Stitch with Lisa Bongean.” I’m excited to tell you that we’ll be doing a trunk show on my newly released, “Garden Gatherings“ line. We’ll be taking a look at each quilt in this brand new collection, as well as revisiting some pattern designs from one of my previous but similar lines, “Flower Garden Gatherings.” If you’re looking for a spring project or just love these fabrics, tune in for some fun and fresh ideas by clicking the link below. OH! and I almost forgot… Easter is this Sunday so we’ll have a little something to share with you from the Easter Bunny as well. How eggciting… LOL! Don’t miss it! See you then, ~Lisa
