Welcome to Moda Blockheads #3 (2020) - A FREE Block of the Week Program!
Looking for Moda Blockheads #1? It is now a published book available here. Looking for Moda Blockheads #2? Free block patterns are still available, for a limited time, here.
Details: What is Moda Blockheads: A free sampler block quilt sew along.
Starts: January 15th, 2020
Sign Up: This is a frequently asked question - there is no sign-up. Just start collecting the free quilt block patterns. They will be presented here, on the Moda blog, and on each designer's blog. There is also a Moda Blockheads Facebook Group you can request to join. (This is not a requirement to participate.)
Number of weeks/number of blocks: Begins January 15th, 2020 and will run for 56 blocks. There will be weeks with just one block, and there will be weeks with multiple blocks.
Block Sizes:You can choose what size blocks to make…4, 6, 8 or 12″ blocks.
Yardage Requirements: Since you get to decide what size you are creating your blocks, yardage requirements are a little tricky to calculate. Suggestions are for a large quilt to start with at least 30 Fat Quarters and 7-8 yards of background fabric. Smaller blocks or a smaller quilt, you will need less. Setting Instructions: A few ideas may be presented along the way. But each designer will probably do something different, even making it up as they go. More details as the program runs.
Block Patterns: The link to each new block will be available on that week's Moda Designers blog. We will posting the free block pattern download here for easy finding, along with any updates we learn, as the weeks go by. Please Note: We test our links very carefully after loading. If you experience trouble downloading the block pattern, please try using a different browser than the one causing you problems or even a different computer. Some devices are just crankier to use than others.
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. Note: We are not involved in the designing of the blocks, what the pattern looks like, or have anything personally to do with the designers of Moda. Participation is free! Enjoy it if you wish but you are not required to participate. And if you have issues or complaints, please take them up with Moda Fabrics or contact the block designer. Thank you!
01/14/2020 Update: In support of the Moda Blockhead Designers, we will be posting a link only to their blog post on Wednesdays. We will upload the block pattern on here on Fridays. We will also post links for any updates, as they become available. We will post new weekly block reminders in our Saturday newsletter. Think of this page as a Resource Page, as our only goal during this program, is to assist in the ease of finding and organizing the Moda Blockheads III information. Thank you.
