BH3-20- Contribution

Blockheads 3

Todays’ block pattern is supplied by Lisa Bongean of Primitive Gatherings, and the pattern can be downloaded from her blog.

The name of the block is Contribution and I think that is such a perfect block to describe Lisa B. She is so generous to contribute her tips and techniques on how she makes everything happen.
I almost hate to share my block but I am going to.

My points are not perfect as I was working on this block during the labor day weekend.

My husband has gone crazy over the new Cheetos popcorn and insisted I give it a try.

I am not a huge fan but that does not mean I still keep a bowl of it by my machine to munch on.

No matter how many times I washed my hands or thought I licked all the cheese off my fingers,

I still got some on my block.

Fingers crossed, it will wash out.

I have been making the 8″ size and my notebook is filling up.

I love flipping through the book and seeing the progress I have made so far.

BlockHeads- Magic Block and triangle papers giveaway

BLOCKHEAD WEDNESDAY

Today is a day of Magic. If you have even seen any of Lisa Bongean’s work then you will understand. Lisa creates magic with everything she touches.
She makes it all look so easy.
But the best thing about the process is that Lisa is a fantastic teacher sharing her tips on accurate piecing no matter how big or small.

My block is 8″ and I am happy with how it turned out but Lisa’s is 4″. You can see her block and get the pattern here.

Blockheads3- Sherri McConnell

SUNSHINE STAR

Welcome to block 2 in the Blockheads 3 series.
( that sounds weird)
This week’s block is designed by Sherri McConnell of A Quilting Life and she is one of the sweetest people I know. I will probably be saying that a lot on my Blockheads posts because I do think these gals are the best!

I am not sure what my layout is going to be so I am making some of the simpler blocks in a variety of sizes. If I don’t use the 4″ blocks they can always be used as quilt labels, pincushions or parts of zipper bags.

My tip for this week is to sew the blocks in quarters.

Many of the blocks can be done this way and it helps with making sure the shapes are faced in the correct direction. It is also easier to chain piece the sections and then press the sections nicely and then join the 4 quarters together.

The flannel board is one of my makeshift boards using the cardboard from a layer-cake package, a piece of batting and some cloth duct tape around the edges. The cloth duck tape is available at many craft stores, hobby, and hardware stores. It is not available in the greatest colors but when in a bind and want to make a bunch of these boards quickly it works.

I am still playing with my fabric combinations by making a variety of sizes of blocks.

I hope you are having fun.

This week’s pattern available at Sherri’s blog.

I’d love to see your version of the blocks so be sure and tag your posts using
