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!!! 

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!!!!

Moda Block Heads 3/ Lisa Bongean Top US Quilt Blogger

Sorry for my delay in posting the blocks lately…too much going on…too many deadlines…too many projects and then all the world’s happenings…too much to handle for me at least…so I just worry…and try to clear my head on my jetski, pedal bike, and Harley, when I can’t take it no longer.  Let’s keep praying for answers.  I must apologize to my Moda Sister’s for not being able to post and support their blocks lately…

  Here is Block 21,by Lissa Alexander

HERE ARE SOME QUICK TIPS:

STARCH first off!  Most Important…If you need to learn about starching go HERE for STARCH VIDEO

https://lisabongean.com/christmas-carol-mystery-sew-along/

I like to cut my pieces to size unless they are HSTs or Square in a Square units…for this Moda Block Heads-Block 20 pattern the directions are written for flying geese with the sew and flip corner method…Not my favorite, so here are my cutting measurements for my 4″ block.  I also am using Triangle Paper to make perfect 1″ HSTs

Here is a video/post on how the Triangle Papers work.

Cutting for 4″ block- with no sew & flip corners

https://lisabongean.com/christmas-carol-mystery-sew-along/And sometimes when you get to this point you need to adjust a little….https://lisabongean.com/christmas-carol-mystery-sew-along/This looks better with a more contrasting center….

Here is an idea of what I’m working on for a layout…Just playing so far…but liking how it is turning out…the setting directions will be offered later this summer…
