Block Heads 2 – Block 13

It’s the last Block Heads Wednesday of August… so that means we can start celebrating all-things-autumn next week, right?

And what better way to do that than with Corey Yoder and her beautiful Maple Charm quilt!  Welcome Corey!  Today is her first turn as a new Block Head and she’s Lucky Block 13 – she brought flowers to celebrate!

The instructions for this block can be found here – Corey’s Blog ~ Block 13 – Patchwork Flower.

Moda Michele made her long, tall flower using a background from Puzzle Pieces and three fabrics from Block Head Betsy Chutchian.  The purple flower and green stem are from Evelyn’s Homestead, the yellow flower center is from Rachel Remembered, and the green leaves are from Hope’s Journey.

Me?  I’m a wee bit behind with sewing this week so I have a stem, two leaves and some loose petals.  I’ll share when I get caught up next week.  

These are Corey’s first seven Block Heads 2 blocks – all made with a mix of her beautiful fabric collections.  That lilac – it’s from Sunnyside Up – her coming-in-November collection. 

Corey’s Block 12 – Jace’s Star.  Corey’s collections mix beautifully – that green is also from Sunnyside Up.

There will be an adorable set of three Pencil Boxes and Mini Notes to coordinate with the Sunnyside Up collection.  (And a perfectly wonderful set of Sunnyside Up Zipper Bags and a Hello Sunshine Tote Bag.)

How many of the Moda Designers for Block Heads 2 planted a Patchwork Flower today?  Check their blogs and Instagrams to see:

Happy Wednesday!

  1. I think that the Patchwork Flower would make a beautiful table runner with a flower at both ends and maybe some vines running around it.

  2. WHY? Why do I have to search for the pattern! I seem to have problems finding the week’s pattern without clicking from one page/site to another!

    1. Hi Linda – I’m sorry that you’re frustrated.

      Two things to share – first, when the Block Heads blog post is published on the Moda website, the Archive page has already been updated. With very rare exceptions, that page has been updated by 4:00 am CST. The Archive always includes the direct link to the block PDF.

      Second, the primary purpose of this Block of the Week was to promote the designers participating, and drive traffic to their blogs and websites. So posting the pattern link on very blog would mean that nobody would go to another blog, show interest in the designers, or do anything other than get their block instructions. That is also why we have discussed and rejected the idea of a direct e-mail. If we did that, we could just send the blocks and none of us would have to take the time to make the block, share tips or blog.

      Again, I’m sorry that you’re frustrated. Truly. But we’re not making this difficult on purpose. 🙂
