Blockhead. noun block·head \ˈbläk-ˌhed\
A quilter who likes to make a wide variety of quilt blocks, who probably collects books filled with quilt blocks, who has lots of random quilt blocks but still wants to make more. Does this sound like you?
The Moda Blockheads are:
Lynne Hagmeier, Betsy Chutchian, Jan Patek, Jo Morton, & Lisa Bongean
- Blocks – each Blockhead will post the same block each week on their blog, Facebook or website.
- The Blockheads are all making blocks and a quilt – setting ideas and instructions will be provided at the end.
- Scrappy! That’s one thing all six of us have in common – we love scrap quilts, the more fabrics the better! Most of the designers will be making a quilt using their own fabric collections… but there are a couple who are already whispering about making more than one quilt. (Rumor has it that a few of the designers will be offering “starter packs” of their fabrics.)
- Yardage? If you know you’re going to want to use a single collection – I’d start with at least 24 fat quarters and 3 to 4 yards of background.
