#modablockheads2 Quilt Along

Summer:  we're just hours away from the first day of Summer 2018 , Why not spend summertime days enjoying a quilt a long?

That's my plan.

It's summer 2018  & I'm a blockhead, er.....I've chosen to be a Moda Blockhead.

MODA Fabric + Supplies has launched Moda Blockheads Round 2. Every Wednesday (started on June 6th,2018) a new FREE block pattern is released.  All the blocks are from Moda Designer's  and the patterns will be avaialble on their blogs.  Visit the Moda Blog HERE for all the info, links to the patterns and they even have a Blockheads Facebook group.

It's  been alot of fun for me so far.  You can make you blocks your own way , use your stash or get something new.  I have been looking for the right project to sew with the new Christopher Wilson-Tate REGENCY BLUES fabrics from Moda and BLockheads round 2 is it!

I'm using Christopher's  FAT QUARTER BUNDLE   and  my background is 5 yards of  BELLA SOLID INDIGO 9900 218   But you could also use one  REGENCY BLUES FAT EIGHTHS BUNDLE  and one  REGENCY BLUES CHARM PACK  and 5 yards of background for the BLockheads2 quilt.

Block 3 is Pennsylvania by Carrie Nelson.  Link to the Pattern HERE and stop in on the Moda Blog HERE for all the info. I like this one! It was so quick to make, and I think I  will make about 30 of them (scrappy blues) into a pleasing throw quilt

I'm a quite a happy camper (summer sew along camper) now that I have broken open my bundle of beautiful Regency Blues.  I even made a shirt out of it to wear on my next trip. I will see if I can get a picture of that.  It's in my suitcase right now and I dare not open that thing back up since I finally got it zipped ☺


Are you sewing along this summer ? Online, at your local shop, with a group or club? If you have a tale to tell, please share it in the comments below.  There are SEW many to choose from.  Whether you are sewing on your own or in a group....until we blog again, be sure to take time out to Enjoy the Sew!®
