Today...Block 10 Duck and Ducklings by Jo Morton for Moda BlockHeads 2

Happy Wednesday everyone! It's Moda BlockHeads 2 day and today's designer is Jo Morton. Jo's block is a favorite of mine, Duck and Ducklings. 

Here is my version. 
This week's fabrics are all from Evelyn's Homestead.
  I chose a dark background this time.

12" block

To piece the Half Square Triangles, quickly and accurately, I used Spinning Stars Triangle Paper 
for 1 1/2" units.
hmm, it's upside down, but you get the idea. 

 The corner is right side up, lol. As you can see, you need individual triangles to complete the corner section.
 I've noticed my indigos are Photographing like black!  oops, they really are dark blue!

I hope you enjoy making Jo's block, I did!

And the pile is growing.  Love them!

Happy Sewing!

Be sure to visit all our designers to see what they have made this week.  Links below.
Next week, one of our new BlockHeads, Sherri McConnell of A Quilting Life, debuts her block.

Another busy week has flown by...writing patterns, drawing quilts, rearranging schedules.
And a family day. 

My ducks and ducklings...

My son, Matt on the left and son-in-law Craig on the right...the splash in the middle is Madison. Only pic I got of her, LOL. They took turns throwing her up in the air.  That little sweetheart is part flying fish...loves the water and swimming.

and here's Reed, tired out, in my daughter Rachel's arms.
14 months, finally walking.  Splashed in the pool, all worn out.

 It was a lovely afternoon visiting with family.  Many photos not taken. Sadly I get so busy watching or visiting, I'm not recording the moment...maybe that's not such a bad thing.

Hug your loved ones.

Until next time,
