Moda Blockheads3 Week 44 by Sherri McConnell

I really like the name for this week. We are a community. 

Sorry I’ve been absent for a while. Lots going on as usual, plus a lot of trouble with my email program, iPhone an desktop. Yes, I need a new phone and desktop. I’m typing on the iPad which I’ve not been able to do until tonight. I’m awful with technology, tech anything so if this blog posts, I will be amazed. 

My version of Community 

                                                  First I made the 8” block then ....

...a 4” version.

Click Here for Sherri’s pattern.

I saved all the cut away triangles from making the flying geese in the 8“ to make a little 4”cutie with 16 triangle units.
Here are some options for consideration...

These little extras are going to come in handy when I’m ready to set my quilt. Hope you enjoy the last round of blocks. My last block will be next week. 

Until next time,
~ Betsy


  1. Love all your placement variations. I save those tiny trimmed off half square triangles too. They make great 'fabric' for zip bags!

  2. A beautiful block and I love the options with the cutoffs. Such gorgeous fabrics!

  3. I love that block with those colors! I was so hoping to be able to get the pattern as I am a beginner, but when I hit the "here" I got an error message. Is it me?

  4. I always love your blocks. Don’t know what I would make with your layer cake but I’m sure I can think of lots! Gifts - pillows, tissue holders, bowl warmers, mug rugs, thread catchers, pin cushions and a quilt!

  5. I love the ways you show to use the cut away triangles! Brilliant. Thanks for sharing!
