So. It’s been a while...I think the last time I blogged was in February?? I planned a blogging break, but truly not this long! So what’s been going on? I’ve been teaching and traveling, a lot. Amazing places, wonderful students, meeting new friends, traveling with great friends. Alabama, East Texas, France, Portland, Oregon and Seattle area. Fun times with family birthday parties
and beautiful memories all around.
Now that I’m back from Quilt Market and teaching in Washington state,
it’s time for BlockHeads 2 to begin.
Here is our first block by
Lynne Hagmeier of Kansas Troubles
12" finished block
block measures 12 1/2"
Please go to Lynne’s blog for the pattern. Click on the link.
This is my palette. Mostly Evelyn's Homestead with the addition of a little red from Grace's Garden and my market line, Harriet's Handwork (October delivery) Some fabrics may be added and some others may not be used, but this is the general idea for this year.
We have made a few changes for BH2...first thing you will notice is bigger blocks.
This week it is a 12" block.
The smallest block we will have is 6".
We have a Basic Instruction sheet you will want to print for your BlockHeads 2 folder.
No extra 3" blocks from me this time.
This year, the original six designers have invited a friend to join the group. Each one of us will be introducing our invitee today. And, each of us will blog 4 times (on our specific day for our 4 blocks), since there are more of us. I plan to blog as much as possible besides my designated days
and so will many of the other designers.
Moda's blog, The Cutting Table, will have far more information than what I've shared here, so be sure to read it each week. Links will be there for the designers and everything else.
You can find me easily each Wednesday, barring some internet glitche when I'm traveling, on Instagram @betsy_chutchian and on Facebook Betsy Reed Chutchian
Here is the Link to our Facebook Moda BlockHeads https://www.facebook.com/groups/253867175058745/
You will want to join if you haven’t already to see the blocks everyone makes.
I invited Stacy Iest Hsu. Do you know Stacy? Stacy is a wonderful Moda designer, who besides designing pretty fabrics, designs adorable soft dolls for you to make. Stacy lives in California with her husband and 3 children. You will enjoy getting to know Stacy! https://www.instagram.com/stacyiesthsu/
Thank you ALL for participating in BlockHeads 1 and now for joining us for BlockHeads 2.
Have fun making these blocks with me and my friends.
Until next time,
