Happy BlockHeads3 Wednesday Week 26 Zig Zags by Janet Clare and Winners!!

Happy Wednesday! Not only do we have the cute block, number 26 by Janet Clare but I am finally announcing the winners on last week's giveaways.
One would think that all this staying at home would leave me with some free time...ha ha. 
Isn't there always something that needs tending to, I haven't even sewn more that a block or two since last where did the week go?? Taxes.  Days of working on the taxes that we were so happy to have postponed from April! 
I hope you had enjoyed a nice 4th of July.  Ours was very quiet, just the two of us at home.
Kids in the neighborhood shot off fireworks for days.  Where did they get them?? Without the normal huge 4th of July displays to go watch, it was just not the same to watch on TV.

Here's Janet's cute block.

Zig Zags by Janet Clare

Zig Zags makes me think of winding roads, you know the S signs on the road when you are driving in the mountains...switchback curves...a little summer dreaming here...of mountains, not flat Texas and cooler climates!!!

Thanks Janet! I enjoyed playing with triangles, and options!

for Janet's blog and the pattern.
 Be sure to visit all our designers to see what they have made this week.

Below, is my original choice of fabrics, but to me, the two blues were not close enough in value so I pieced more triangle squares and I'm happy with the above block, which is the 4" version

I had some fun playing with the leftover HSTs. This could be a second block. Or, I might save them for fill in parts when it's time to assemble.


Flying Geese

Lots of options!

Have fun playing with fabrics, triangles and sizes of blocks.

Now to announce the winners of last week's giveaways. 
The random number generator has spoken...
I divided everyone into categories according to the book you selected, that's why I needed to know if you were in the USA because I do the mailing. Everyone was in the running for digital version of Mini Marvels. Four different chances to win, four times to hit the number generator.
Thank you all for entering. I loved reading your comments!
I'm sure glad the random generator does the picking!
Thanks to those who included their emails, as I'll be contacting you asap.

Mini Marvels goes to Dani VW
I'm sending your email to our liaison at Martingale and She will send you your digital copy, your eBook.

 For these 3 winners,  I'll need physical addresses so please watch for an email from me.

On a Roll goes to KMSC

Merry Makers goes to Margaret Crow

Mix It Up goes to Karen at Breezy Point


I hope you enjoy these Moda All Star books!

Do you know that proceeds from  the sale of each book goes to charity? 
Isn't that awesome? 

Stay safe, stay well, wear a mask, and SEW!

Until next time,
~ Betsy

  1. Your block turned out great! I agree that the blues in your first version were not close enough in color to get the continuous look you wanted. I am thinking of making mine in 4" size because I need some 4" blocks and have none. I did not realize the proceeds from the sale of the books went to charity. That is good to know!


  2. If you're American, soccer probably isn't your cuppa tea.

    First of all, at all times I used the soccer teams themselves as a starting point.
