Blockheads Update

This project was coming along beautifully until I finished block #13 . Remember the long flower block? It was challenging and fun. 



And then the following week the blocks started being posted 2 at a time, and I fell behind. The more you fall behind, the harder it is to catch up. In the blink of an eye, block #22 was posted this week. Yikes! Suddenly I found myself 9 blocks behind.
I was drawn back into the project with Laurie Simpson's "Economy Path" block #22. There are 28 pieces in this block and it looked easy to make. 

This is a 3" block small enough to fit in the palm of your hand. It's very cute, but truthfully sometimes sewing a miniature block takes longer than a full size block! The seam allowances have to be exact with no room for "fudging".
My blocks are being made from the "Harmony" fabric line by Sweetwater. I was happy to find a scrap from one of their old fabric lines called "Mama Said Sew" and will use it up in some of these small blocks.

Here are all my completed blocks on the design wall. That's one busy quilt so far. I predict that sashing may be necessary to calm it down a bit. I better go and check the Blockheads II blog to see how many blocks I am behind now!

  5. You're not too far behind, but the last ones have lots of HSTs (using the multiple HST methods works well). I have some left over Harmony fabric from a project I just finished. Let me know if you need more fabric and I'd be happy to send it your way.

  8. I really like your version of this SAL. The colors are comforting and not discordant. Nice job!
