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.

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

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!….

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!

Moda Block Heads 3 Quilt Along- Block 26

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:  

Zig-Zags by Janet Claire

MBH3-26
Moda Block Heads 3 block 26 pieced by Lisa Bongean, using Moda Urban Farmhouse Gatherings and a Bella Solid.

            I guess I also have an alternative to the directions…I made 1/2″ HSTs for my block.   I used the layout for the 8″ block.  All you need to do for this 4″ finished block to look like the 8″ block is 16 HSTs of each unit.  Here the easiest way to do it… You will need:

2 -5″ squares of all 4 fabrics A-D.

4 –1/2″ HSTS papers. This link brings you to ALL the Triangle Papers…you will need the 1/2″ Finished for Charm Squares for this block if you want the same as shown here. There is also a Variety pack for the Charms with all four sizes included…

IMG_2797 2

The light is my A, the grey with the black print is my B, the geometric grey/ black is my C and D is my dark grey.

Make all the HST according to the directions on the HST papers. You will have 2 extra from this…the sheets make 18 HSTs each.

Set one is A/B, set two is A/C, set three is B/D and set four is C/D, just like the pattern reads.

IMG_4518

Start stitching the rows together…It is really pretty easy.  Also you if you look close it is very easy to be one thread off and it looks like a lot more…I do not sweat this…let it go…it is almost impossible to get them all perfect making them this small.

IMG_7683 3

My sister gave me this little weight the last time we were out shopping…it is perfect for flattening my stitched pieces.IMG_9440IMG_8173 5

IMG_1300 4

It came out exactly 4 1/2″.  I know it looks bigger here but it is because it is not lying flat, it is raised up more toward the camera…makes an illusion, like when you catch a fish and hold it out closer to the camera, it looks much bigger…same thing here…ask me how I know the fish thing???

Here is the back, showing the seams pressed open.

IMG_5691

I do not know why I could not make the 1″ HSTs…I guess it’s just the way I am…

I hope you try the 4″ block with the 1/2″ HSTs…I can’t wait to see them!  Send me a pic…on social media…there could be a reward!
