Intro to Moda Blockheads {Round 2}

Blockhead1
Yep, I'm a Blockhead. You know...a Moda Blockhead? You still don't know what I'm talking about? Okay, okay, here's a quick rundown of what you need to know:
1. Moda Blockheads is a free block-of-the-week program hosted by Moda and some of its designers. Last year was Round 1, hosted by the 6 original "Blockheads" (Lynne, Betsy, Jo, Jan, Lisa, and Carrie). Round 2 begins today with an expanded Moda designer pool of 13... I'm thrilled to be one of the newbies!
2. Sew along with us, and eventually you'll have a pretty special quilt sampler. It's a surprise layout, though though of course, you can do whatever you'd like!
3. Follow the Moda Blockhead Facebook page or subscribe to the Moda blog to get the weekly instructions as they are released.. I will also be posting each week with the links to follow. Additionally, I've added a nice little archive--basic instructions and links to all released blocks at the bottom of this post
I'm using a happy little rainbow for my quilt--scraps of several of my past and current collections: Garden Variety, Nest, Farmer's Daughter, Sugar Pie, Olive's Flower Market, and Little Miss Sunshine too. It's going to be terrific. If you're buying fabric for this project, I'd start out with a fat quarter bundle, 5 yards of a background, and go from there. Because there are so many blocks, so many liberties you can take, it's hard to give an exact amount, but that's a good starting place.

Block #1 is Stellar Star by Lynne... (go to Lynne's blog here for instructions). I've departed from suggested placement (which is half the fun).

  2. Love your block and the fabrics you used. I'm starting to 'collect' many of your fabrics - love that you can intermix them :)!

  4. I love this line even more than Nest! I guess you use fat quarters as the pattern doesn’t indicate if precuts can be used. I have a layer cake and a jelly roll but I will go with a fat quarter bundle. Your block is so cute. I sure like those fabrics!!

    1. Absolutely, I'm just pulling large scraps from my stash, but a fat quarter bundle is definitely a good starting place--especially for some of the bigger blocks. Can't wait to see what everyone else is making :)
