Moda Blockheads 2017


Welcome to Moda Blockheads - A FREE Block of the Week Program!

Charlie Brown was also a "blockhead".  Maybe not the same kind of blockhead as most quilters are, but we won't hold that against him.  "LUCY!"

Blockhead:
noun, A quilter who likes to make a wide variety of quilt blocks, who probably collects books filled with quilt blocks, who has lot of random quilt blocks but still wants to make more.

Come quilt-along with six blockheads....Moda designers: Lynne Hagmeier, Betsy Chutchian, Jan Patek, Jo Morton, Lisa Bongean, and Carrie Nelson!

Details: 
Beginning March 8th, each designer will rotate through the weeks bringing you a new FREE Blockhead pattern of the week.  They will each create 8 blocks - that's 48 weeks of new, free block patterns! 
Each weekly pattern will be a free download. 
Yardage requirements?  Make it SCRAPPY or pick your favorite color scheme.  If you know you want to use a single collection, Moda advises you start with at least 24 fat quarters and 3-4 yard of background fabric.  Setting ideas and instructions will be provided at the end of the program.
Blocks will be 6 inch square.

We will post the free block pattern download here for easy finding.  You can also follow along with each of the designers on their blog pages for more creative inspiration. 

Friendly Reminder:  We can not post the block until the designer releases it on their blog each week (yes, posting is a manual process) AND we are in the Pacific Time Zone, so if you are following along with us, please be patient on Wednesday mornings.

Come be a Blockhead in 2017!!
