MODA BLOCKHEADS: Week #1

INTRODUCTION For those of you who are new here [as I see many of you are]… welcome to the MODA Blockheads adventure. I am excited to see these quilts grow and evolve especially with some of our color combination suggestions! For those of you who have participated with us before, you know the weekly fun of MODA BLOCKHEADS. Last year when we participated, we made a red and cream masterpiece that will go down in the books… that quilt was a lot of work and we loved every minute of it but we are ready for something a bit more straightforward this year [feel free to scroll back to some of last year’s posts if you want to see more about that quilt]. This year the program is a bit more subdued and a bit shorter [previous years have lasted the full year and included 50…

MODA Blockheads IV is almost here!

For those of you who have participated with us before, you know the weekly fun of MODA BLOCKHEADS. Last year when we participated, we made a red and cream masterpiece that will go down in the books… that quilt was a lot of work and we loved every minute of it but we are ready for something a bit more straightforward this year [feel free to scroll back to some of last year’s posts if you want to see more about that quilt]. This year the program is a bit more subdued and a bit shorter [previous years have lasted the full year and included 50+ blocks] with 28 MODA designers participating, each contributing a single block and MODA adding in a few bonus blocks to round out the group for those of you who want to keep going for a bigger quilt. We are very excited…

Figs & Friends Collaboration: Bundle #6

For those of you in the FIGS & FRIENDS PROGRAM… Its time for your sixth and final bundle of the 2021-2022 program year! We hope you guys enjoyed your previous bundles and are ready for this last beauty as it should be hitting your doorsteps this coming week! Even though we did not plan it this way [these things are planned months in advance], we are very happy with the yellow and blue color combination as a way of honoring and standing in solidarity with our UKRAINIAN neighbors. If you follow me on social media, you might know that the proceeds from all of our extra bundles this time around will go to the Ukraine. Our hearts will go with the donation too. ………………… Here is a little backstory to how this series got started in case you missed it… A…

LAYER CAKE SQUARES… new version!

This pattern is so crazy popular in our group and the Sew Along right now that we thought we would show you guys another version of it. We made this one from my current collection, FRESH FIG FAVORITES, and added a bit of tan and aqua… and voila a super simple summer version was born. I kinda love this one too!! Come on over and sew with us! For the pattern CLICK HERE. To join our FACEBOOK GROUP and join in the SEW ALONG, CLICK HERE…

NEW…LAYER CAKE SQUARES

I know that most of us have a dozen half started projects that we are slowly working our way through and that is just okay… we are quilters after all :-)! I also know that most of us are often looking for a quick fun project or for a way to have some instant gratification in the midst of all of those other ongoing projects. So I am always hoping to give you guys new ideas, inspiration or new ways of using what you already have on hand! In our Facebook Group, each quarter or so we try to focus on a different MODA Precut and talk about ways to use it, feature some of our favorite Fig Tree projects for that precut, and cheer each other on in our completion. I also try to offer a simple fun pattern for that precut. Well, this time it is the LAYER…
