Block Heads 2 – Block 3

Shhh… don’t anybody jinx anything.

Happy Block Heads Wednesday – Round 2, Week 3.  Welcome to Pennsylvania – the Keystone State!  

This is Block 3 – as pieced by Moda Michelle using fabrics from Old Cambridge Pike by Barbara Brackman and Collections for a Cause by Howard Marcus.

BLOCK INSTRUCTIONS – Block Heads 2 – Block 3 – Pennsylvannia. 

This is my Pennsylvania block.  It’s made with fabrics from Jen Kingwell’s Looking Forward Lollies and a background from Zen Chic’s upcoming More Paper.

As much as I like it, I started thinking about what else I could do with the same “base block” – I’d just switch around some of the basic parts.  Basic… the definition of that is probably a bit relative.

First, I substituted a four-patch for the center square – the squares are the same size as the corners.  Then I used half-triangle squares for the corners and a quarter-triangle square for the center.  All the squares are still 1-1/2″ unfinished, 1″ finished.  The centers are 2-1/2″ unfinished, 2″ finished.  

In case you missed it – Block Heads 2 – Block 3 – Pennsylvannia. .

If you haven’t yet visited everyone, here are the Block Heads for Round 2:

Happy Blockheads Wednesday!

  1. Absolutely love all the variations – got up at 5 a.m. Pacific to get the block but I have to finish my first cup of coffee before I cut.

  2. Hi, I was just wondering why when I click on the link for Kansas Troubles it goes to the Jo Morton website?

  3. FYI Just tried clicking on KT’s link to their block and it brings up Jo Morton’s web site….

  4. Hi Carrie, love everyone of your posts! February 6, 2018, in your blockheads (1) post, you had a gold/Black/grey/taupe churn dash quilt, using moda cake mix 6 & said “instructions would be coming”. Do you know if they are available, if so, how/where would I find them? I LOVE that quilt!! Thank you so much!!!
