New Year, New Projects or in this case a continuation of last year’s Blockheads 5. Each blockheads series I struggle with what my setting is going to be. While I think I am one of those go with the flow kind of gals, I know I suffer from paralysis from analysis. Knowing what the layout is, does influence the fabrics you are using in your blocks or at least the color placement.
Do you struggle from this also?
This is the newest block to start 2024 off with a bang. The block is from Sherri McConnell of A Quilting Life.
This block is also by Sherri Mc Connell (round 1). I made the 6″ block inside of the 12″ block. Squint at it. I see a secondary design and think once it is quilted, it will show the design more.
All of the block blocks can be found here on Moda Fabrics website/blog.
I have made some of the blocks as 12″ versions but now that I know what my setting is going to be I am making all 6″ blocks.
I started my project with Nantucket fabrics by Camille Roskelley, mixed in some greens and lights from her current line Lighthearted and will be adding Shoreline which will be in stores later this spring.
We have a weekly Facebook group for Blockheads. If you have not joined the group, please do.
I decided to use the BLUEPRINT quilt by Susan Ache as inspiration for my setting. I am using 6″ blockheads blocks and larger filler blocks from the Celebrate with Quilts book. I did a quick video showing the book and the status of my progress on Blockheads.
So far the quilt has a soft and vintage feel. I can’t wait to finish it.
