Moda Blockheads Block #33

Welcome to Week #33 of the MODA BLOCKHEADS SEW ALONG!

Today I’m adding another fun super simple alternate block to our weekly MODA BLOCKHEADS SEW ALONG. Its a simple Sixteen Patch…

This week we are back around to Brigitte and her stunning modern creations. Check out her pattern, link HERE and download the pattern directions for your project.

If paper or curved piecing just isn’t your thing or you just don’t have the time or energy to work on a technique that is not “in your wheel house”… we have once again whipped up an alternate block this week!

It is time we are starting to think about our layout and decided that we really needed a few simple patchwork blocks to work into the line up. So here is Sixteen Patch, our alternate block for the week. We will be alternating ours with our alternate flower blocks from last week as well as the last round.

So since we want our finished blocks to be 6″, we simply cut (16) 2″ squares. If you want to make other sized blocks, feel free to make smaller squares or just less of them. We made 2 scrappy blocks, because we will need 2 in our final layout.

We don’t have any specific instructions or info about that this week. Since this is a filler/patchwork block, you can pretty much do anything you like!

They will be alternated with these here below.

… introducing POSIE BLOOM!

      You are very welcome. Sometimes the super simple ones let the other ones stand out better… in my humble opinion!
