Here is what we know so far:


Welcome to Moda 2018 Blockheads #2 - A FREE Block of the Week Program!  You can find Moda 2017 Blockheads #1 HERE.

Come quilt-along with Moda designers: Lynne Hagmeier, Betsy Chutchian, Jan Patek, Jo Morton, Lisa Bongean, Carrie Nelson and a few mystery guest appearances.

Details: 
Beginning June 6th, 2018, each designer will rotate through the weeks bringing you a new FREE Blockhead pattern of the week. 

Number of weeks/number of blocks:  Begins June 6th, 2018 and runs until April 17th, 2019.  Estimates look like about 46 blocks, based on the proposed schedule.

Yardage requirements:  Here is what the Moda designers are saying...."Fabric Requirements:  This is where it gets a little less precise.  It all depends on whether you use a single background for all the blocks, mixed backgrounds – light or dark, or a variety of light, medium and dark fabrics for the “background” of some blocks.  So these estimates are rough.  Generous.  But rough.  The yardage calculations are also based on a “traditional approach” of an allover light or dark background with contrasting prints for the block parts."

  • One Background and Assorted Lights/Medium/Darks:
    • Assorted Lights/Mediums/Darks for blocks = 30 to 32 Fat Quarters or scraps to total approximately 8 yards
    • Background = 4 1/2 yards
  • Multiple Background and Assorted Lights/Mediums/Darks:
    • Assorted Lights/Mediums/Darks for blocks = 30 to 32 Fat Quarters or scraps to total approximately 8 yards
    • Assorted prints for Background = 18 to 20 Fat Quarters of scraps to total approximately 5 yards
  • A mix of Lights/Mediums/Darks:
    • Assorted Lights/Mediums/Darks for blocks and Background = 48 to 50 Fat Quarters or scraps to total approximately 13-14 yards

Setting ideas and instructions:  The Moda designers have a plan that they will be sharing at the end of the year.  A few parts can be moved around and of course, you do not have to follow their layout.  The layout will not need additional fabric for sashing, alternating squares, setting triangles, etc....unless you want to change the setting to make it your own.  They are not releasing the full reveal until the last block is published.  They will also have options for turning this "big" project into several smaller projects.  The

Block sizes:  6 inch blocks, 12 inch blocks and maybe other sizes mixed in.  6 inch finished blocks is the smallest.  Finished quilt size will measures 72 inches by 78 inches.  You can create additional blocks or add borders to increase the size.

Block Patterns:  The link to each new block will be available on that week's Moda Designer blog.  Some of these designers will be blogging every week, others will only blog for their blocks.  We believe we will be able to post the free block pattern download here for easy finding.  (Again, we are waiting for more upcoming details.)

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.  We will post it as soon as we arrive to the shop and we will post a "New Block" reminder in our Thursday emails.
