Blockheads ~ Two?

Happy Valentine’s Day!

Will you be our Valentine?

We’re sending “hearts” today to several lovely ladies who have finished their Blockheads’ quilt tops.

This is Robin of Petty Quilt Junction’s quilt.  Robin shared this on Instagram – @pettyquiltjunction.  It’s quilted and bound!

This is Randi’s quilt – @randicassellius.  Those red stars are a wonderful finish.

And Susanne – @susanne3410.

Congratulations ladies!  You’re all ready for Blockheads 2!

That’s our exciting news to share today – there will be a Blockheads 2!

Here’s what we know for sure:

  • Starting date – to be determined.  We’re still working that part out but it probably won’t be before May so… get busy and finish Blockheads 1.
  • The Original Six will be there – here.  Lynne Hagmeier, Betsy Chutchian, Jan Patek, Jo Morton and Lisa Bongean… and one or more of them might be bringing along a friend.
  • There will be a few new wrinkles… a few details to iron out.  (I just couldn’t resist that one.)
  • While the finished quilt will still be mostly a Mystery, we will have the proposed layout and yardage estimates at the beginning.

Have you seen Lisa Bongean’s quilt top?

It’s spectacular – and huge!  It’s 88″ square.  I can’t wait to see this one when it’s quilted and completely finished.

Mine?  I’ve made some progress.

But I’ll hurry up now that I know there’s a Blockheads 2 coming.

Happy Wednesday and Happy Valentine’s Day!

  4. It’s amazing to see such different takes on the blocks & layouts. Looking good. Now that I know there will be a Blockheads 2 I can get in at the start and QAL. Maybe I’ll even get my geese to soar.

  5. Hurray! Congrats to all who finished their Blockheads 1 quilt. They are amazing. Looking forward to Blockheads 2.

  6. It is so intriguing to see how the same exact blocks look so different in various styles and fabric! Very inspiring!

  7. Stunning quilts!! I had been keeping up with the BH and then I fell off the wagon for the last two months of it. I will finish it tho and I love seeing all of these finishes. Have a great day filled with sewing and chocolate, Carrie!!

  10. Great news!! Looking forward to it… Now, I just need to get busy and finish up Blockheads 1 …..

  11. Yeah!!! I’m way behind on Blockheads 1, but will continue working on it – and am so looking forward to Blockheads 2. Happy Valentine’s Day!

  12. I’m so excited to have Blockheads 2 – Wednesdays have not been the same! Lisa’s quilt is magnificent! Can’t wait to see Carrie’s finished. Haven’t set mine yet, but the blocks have been finished which was quite a feat for me! I kept up and really enjoyed the process. Thank You!

  13. good to hear about the new blockhead 2 looking forward to it I loved reading and seeing all the blocks

  14. That’s great news. Now I better make decision and get it finished. Still going to use my stash but this time a more planned approach to the fabric selection! I like a scrappy quilt but this one is way crazy. Ok gotta go sew

  15. Lovely finished quilts, with more to come for sure. Loved getting to know Lisa Bongean better, along with the other designers who took turns coming up with new blocks. Hearts to all of you!

  16. Yippy Skippy!!! Looking forward to it. Loved seeing the finished. I’ve been officially spurred on. Thanks!! Allison C. Bayer, Plano, Texas USA

    1. I’m with Janie! Loved reading the emails every week, and printed out every pattern. Will start soon. And can’t wait for Blockheads 2. Thank you Moda and the wonderful ladies!

  17. That makes me so happy! Blockheads 2. Question for anyone… I’m fairly new to quilting. To use stars as cornerstones, would I end each sashing piece with corners? I hope that made sense? Say indigo cornerstones with yellow sashing and then sorta like sew small indigo squares on the end and press back to become triangles or like a “snowball” corner? I’m just curious not planning to do it with my Blockheads.

  18. Yay! I LOVED Wednesdays like never before just because of Blockheads. Thanks to all you ladies for your hard work in the first sew-along. I can hardly wait until Blockheads 2 starts….and….thanks for posting pictures. I am still deciding on my quilt set-up but am getting some great ideas. Blessings……

  19. Great news! So glad to know that some information will be given at the start to help with fabric amounts. It would help me plan on amount for a consistent background choice. Etc. Love it!

  20. Whoo hoo! One more reason to like Wednesday (again)! I’m still finishing Blockheads 1. My job keeps getting in the way. Can we make quilting a standard for Common Core?
