The Moda Blockheads are: Lynne Hagmeier, Betsy Chutchian, Jan Patek, Jo Morton, & Lisa Bongean

  • Blocks – each Blockhead will post the same block each week on their blog, Facebook or website.
  • The Blockheads are all making blocks and a quilt – setting ideas and instructions will be provided at the end.
  • Scrappy!  That’s one thing all six of us have in common – we love scrap quilts, the more fabrics the better!  Most of the designers will be making a quilt using their own fabric collections… but there are a couple who are already whispering about making more than one quilt.  (Rumor has it that a few of the designers will be offering “starter packs” of their fabrics.)
  • Yardage?  If you know you’re going to want to use a single collection – I’d start with at least 24 fat quarters and 3 to 4 yards of background.
