Moda BlockHeads update...

Hello dear friends...I've just learned some exciting news to share with you all....there will be a BlockHeads 2!   I have NO details at all.  Please stay tuned for updates as they become available.  Wow!  Are you ready for a new adventure???


I'm still trying to find the right sashing for BlockHeads 1 !!!.  Pretty sure about the colors for the cornerstone stars.  well, you know me, I do change my mind.
Sometimes we just have to cut up a few strips and play.  Sit back, and look.  Walk away, and then return with a fresh eye.
And then, still be undecided!

What do you think?

I love indigo, but I'm really liking the red.  Which red print?  The stripe is from Lizzie's Legacy.  I'm surprised I have enough! And the red, with the little dashes and buds, is from Grace's Garden.
The indigo print is from the upcoming Evelyn's Homestead.
No matter which I select, it will at some point go next to blocks with that color on the outside edge.

I think I'm set on cornerstones, though I might mix up the reds and the golds from my different lines. But if I choose use red sashing, maybe I need indigo stars.  Hmmm

If you missed the posting (week 33, October 18) for the 3" Sawtooth Star  I've chosen for cornerstones, here are the measurements to cut:

center square 2"
4 corner squares 1 1/4"
starpoint background (sky for geese) 1 square 2 7/8"
4 squares for starpoints 1 3/4"
Please refer to  my week 32 post if you need a refresher on no-waste flying geese.
Trim starpoint units to 1 1/4" x 2"
Geese are 3/4" x 1 1/2" finished.
Assemble in rows.

Watch for updates on BlockHeads 2.
Happy Sewing!

Until next time
