Hey Boo!

I am such a fan girl of Vanessa Goertzen/Lella Boutique.  Every fabric collection that she creates I become obsessed with. I don’t really need to describe why, if you know you know!

What is a word for fresh traditional modern? Vanessa’s designs cover it all.

I recently finished several of her patterns using OLD GLORY and have moved on to her FALL fabrics,
HEY BOO! These colors are so fun and different for Halloween. I made the quilt that Moda will be kitting, named Pushing up Daisies. Stock # LB 231 and the quilt finishes at 80” x 80”

I have the pattern WEB, stock # LB 229, cut out and started from a retreat project.

FRANK! What can I saw about this one….freakin’ adorable and will be making him as a pillow.


Pattern # LB 232

Since I own almost all of the patterns for HEY BOO, I had to jump in on Lella’s MONSTER MASH Halloween Sampler Quilt.

Blocks are parts of patterns, Stock # LB 230, LB 231, LB 232 and LB 233. I had  purchased 3 of the 4 , so all I needed was 1 more pattern to have all the parts and pieces.

You don’t have to buy all the patterns for the QAL . They will be available for purchase as downloads from Lella Boutique during the QAL.


Each block is 16” so it makes a big fun quilt in no time.

Here is the schedule.

  • 5/8/24: Block 1- House
  • 6/5/24: Block 2- Skull
  • 7/10/24: Block 3 – FRANK
  • 8/7/24: Block 4- pumpkin
  • 9/4/24: Block 5- daisies

Blockheads- Block 23- Vanessa Goertzen

Happy Wednesday and welcome to the LUCKY PENNY block designed by Vanessa Goertzen.


I absolutely love this pattern and I am pretty proud of my workmanship. I took my time and enjoyed the process!

You  can  hop  on  over  to  Vanessa’s  blog  to   download  the  pattern. I am sharing just a few pictures of my process and can’t wait to see yours.

I made the 8″ block and cut the pieces and did a layout so I could make sure none of the same fabrics touched each other… and really I just loved looking at all the blue and whites together.

Just so yummy, yummy, yummy. Doug Leko’s Mini Simple Folded Corners ruler came in so handy to trim my little bitty corners.

How dynamic this block would be as an allover quilt? Lisa Bongean of Primitive Gaterings probably already has a pattern for this.

Thanks for stopping by. I hope you enjoyed my version of Vanessa’s block.
