Welcome to Week #13 of the MODA BLOCKHEADS SEW ALONG! This week is brought to you by lovely Jen Kingwell. I am sure you already know all about Jen and her fabulously eclectic, unique, colorful artistic eye, but if you don’t then you really have to see her and her work on her BLOG HERE. Jen and Richard are a wonderful team and such a pleasure to work and play with… and we have definitely done our fair share of both of those things over the years at Quilt Market. We love them both!! Her block is called THE BALDWIN… but I must admit that I have absolutely no idea why :-)… perhaps she will share with us the background of the name.
We chose the 8″ size… to be honest, I am not one much for paper piecing. But my friend Cynthia who is generously helping me with this project… said this one would be fun to do paper pieced and away she went. So here is this amazing block and even though I absolutely LOVE IT… I have no idea how to do it and no hints and tips to share with you LOL. Just gorgeous how those fabrics sparkle in that design though!
We chose 2 different red prints, each with a good amount of red and white in it so that it would sparkle and not “read” like a solid red. We also divided the background into 2 different cream prints.. one with little stars and one a tone on tone gingham from Christmas Figs.
