Moda Blockheads IV (2022)

Welcome to Moda Blockhead 4 (2022)!

Ready to get started???  Here's what we know so far....

Sampler style quilt sew-along.  A new block each week.  This is a Mystery Quilt.  There is not a featured fabric collection.  You can create as many or as few blocks as you wish.

Starting date is Wednesday, March 23rd, 2022 and runs 28 weeks, ending September 28, 2022.

20+ Moda Designers are participating:

Blocks finish at 9".  There will also be a 4 1/2" block option.  Twenty-eight Designer Blocks and eight Bonus Blocks equal thirty-six blocks total.  One Bonus Block will be posted on Fridays, every 3-4 weeks.

Fabric yardage "estimates" will be available March 16th, 2022.
3/16/2022:  Yardage Estimates:  How much you need depends on how many blocks and what size block you make.  Because this is a sampler quilt, cutting is not as efficient as other quilt patterns.  Moda states these estimates are generous.  Sashings, borders, binding, and backing are NOT included in their yardage estimates but will be available with the setting options.

For 36 - 9" Blocks: 
  • 2 1/2 yards of a single background or 3 yards of multiple backgrounds
  • Assorted medium and dark fabrics; 36 - "Sweet 16s" (roughly 9" by 11") or 10" Layer Cake squares

For 36 - 4 1/2" Blocks:

  • 1 1/4 yards of a single background or 1 3/4 yards of multiple backgrounds
  • Assorted medium and dark fabrics; 18 - "Sweet 16s" (roughly 9" x 11") or 10" Layer Cake squares

Printable yardage estimate sheet is available HERE.

Multiple setting options will be provided as the program goes along. 
  • 1st Setting Option is available HERE.
  • 2nd Setting Option is available HERE.
  • 3rd Setting Option is available HERE.
  • 4th Setting Option is available HERE.

Basic Information from Moda is available HERE.

This sew-along, as with the past programs, is hosted by Moda.  Moda states they will post the new block every Wednesday by 8am CST.  If you want the block as quickly as it is released, we suggest joining the Moda Blockheads Facebook Group, checking the Moda Blog Inspiration and Resources web page, and/or following the Moda designer's blogs.  All questions and concerns should be directed to Moda or contacting the specific block designer.
NOTE:  Moda has asked that no links or mentions to online shops be shared/posted on their Facebook Group.  Please tell your sewing/quilting friends privately, if they might be interested in our posting of the program.

We will post the blocks and new incoming information here in support of the Moda program and so you can easily find the blocks each week.  (We know many of you are not on Social Media.)  We will update our page, when we arrive to the office.  Remember, we are in Oregon in the Pacific Time Zone.

Many have partipated in past Moda Blockheads programs and discovered these block patterns are great for skill building.
Moda Blockheads I has been published as a book so the blocks are no longer available for free download.
Moda Blockheads II is still available HERE.
Moda Blockheads III is still available HERE.

Thank you and Enjoy!
