Here is my alternative block to the Moda Block Heads 3 program. I felt the block offered wouldn't be a good fit with what I was trying to achieve.....so I made a block of my choice. I know the program is a mystery quilt, so maybe I'm not too mysterious.
I wanted to bring in more yellow, so I did. I will have plenty of opportunity throughout the year to incorporate a lot of different colors. I love this combination of Betsy Chutchian fabrics. When I get the time, (she says with tongue in cheek), I would like to design another new pattern and call it Betsy's Medley.
I'm waiting for my thread order to arrive from Superior Thread, so I haven't put the nameless quilt on the long arm yet. I'll finish making the backing today. I may become super proactive and make the binding today too.
In between all of this sewing, I'm working on income taxes. I'm pulling everything together to get to the accountant. Insert grumpy face here. I can only stand to work on taxes a couple hours a day.
I'm also working on my Sew'n Wild Oaks quilting retreat in April at Snowflake Lodge. There's a lot of planning, kit making, and class planning involved.
For those of you who are local to the San Francisco Bay Area, I am teaching Country Romance at In Between Stitches on Sunday, February 23rd from 10am - 4pm. Click HERE for the class information. The quilt is easier that it looks. It's just one block that you make over and over again! The scalloped border isn't difficult either. It would be so much fun to see someone make this quilt in a different colorway. Come join us if you can.
