Blockheads Update



Block #6 was posted last week and is a sunflower
It's one of my favourite blocks so far because it has a pieced base that was interesting, but not too complicated or stressful to sew, plus a tiny bit of easy applique. 





I made the circle using Karen Kay Buckley's "Perfect Circles" and it turned out okay....
not at all perfect, but it's done! 



Here are my first 5 blocks on the design wall. I have cut out the pieces for block #4 and that will be my Slow Sunday Stitching project for this weekend.
Hop over to Moda to see what we are sewing for block #7 - click here.  
Also, if you are a member of Facebook, and want to see more block collections, there is a group page where quilters are posting photos of their blocks - Blockheads Facebook.

  1. My circles aren't perfect either even though I use Karen's circles but they sure do look a lot more like circles than what they did without Karen's circles. Lovely blocks, this is going to be a very pretty quilt.

  2. This was the first time I've used Karen's circles. Looks like we get to use them again for this week's blocks. The bee hive was fun to do too. Looking forward to seeing yours.

  9. Fun to see blogs of others making these blocks. I am all caught up, except there is one I need to redo. I keep putting it off, but the colors are just not right on the block. Yours look great!
