Blockheads 2

When Blockheads 1 began over a year ago, I was late - way late - to the game. I backtracked, though, and printed off each pattern and continued to do so until it ended. Through it all, I probably only made two blocks. Maybe someday I will do them all, for I have seen some of the finished blockhead quilts on Facebook, the blogs, and Instagram - they look spectacular! So, someday...

Once I learned that Blockheads 2 was in the works, I made sure I was ready for it. I am still printing off the patterns, but this time I am actually making the blocks! And I am doing 2 quilts! I know, sorta' unbelievable. Let me show you the first quilt now. I will share the second quilt soon.

Block 1 - 12"

Block 2 - 6"

Blocks 1 and 2 for side-by-side comparing.

Blocks 1-4 - I must not have taken a pic of the 3rd block by itself.

Block 4 - Roman Cross; 12"
For these four weeks I am caught up; the 5th block has been released, and I will probably make it today or tomorrow.

The fabric I am using for this quilt is from a very old FQ pack I had in my stash called Treasures of the York Country Heritage Trust from P&B Textiles. I have a bit of a backstory on the fabric, which I will share in a day or two. I need to pull together some pictures and emails to properly explain it.

Our weather is, at last, delightful here in Ohio! We have been under such a scorching heat wave, this new fresh, cool air is certainly refreshing. Tonight we are going to Picnic with the Pops at the Columbus Commons with friends; bonus: our DD Erin and her DH Jeff will be joining us!

Happy Quilting, Friends!

  1. I thought too the quilts from Blockheads 1 looks so nice and thought about joining in Blockheads 2, but that's all it was, just a thought. You're going to have a lovely quilt, the fabrics look so lovely. Way to keep up with the blocks! Happy stitching this week.
