Moda Blockheads is Now a Quilt!

I got up extra early this morning so I could complete my version of the Moda Blockheads sew-a-long on the last day of issue. Obsessive you say?
 Back


Doing this in the potholder method made it easy to complete the block each week. All the pieced blocks were machine quilted so they could be done quickly. I hand appliqued and hand quilted Jan’s blocks so they took a little longer.

As per my decree that I will name all of my quilts using some sort of cooking reference I am calling this one “Moda Smorgasbord”.

My setting isn’t very interesting, but I like the fact that it showcases each designer in a vertical row.

I had a lot of fun with this one and I would like to thank Moda and all the designers, Lynne Hagmeier, BetsyChutchian, Jo Morton, Jan Patek, Lisa Bongean and Carrie Nelson. They did a great job putting these all together. I tried to use all Moda fabrics, but I did grab a few pieces from the scrap bin so it isn’t a 100% Moda collection. 

This will be my donation quilt for the AQSG auction next Fall.

If you are new to my blog and are wondering “what the heck is the potholder method?” You can read more about it (here).


Have a great quilty day!

  5. I am in awe! I know you credit the potholder method as to why you can be done on the final day, but that also means you kept up with each weekly block--not just making it, but quilting and binding it, as well. Mind boggling! Obsessive? Only in a good way. :)
    It is gorgeous, Wendy, and so generous of you to donate it.

  8. Unique to set all of one designer in a row and looks good. I made the first two blocks and quit as I was overwhelmed with projects at the time. Your method of construction made for an easy finish.

  9. I commented early early this morning from my IPAD but it evidently hasn't learned how to connect or something. I love the way you have planned your quilt. Putting the designers in a row adds so much interest to the quilt. Nice job!

  10. What a wonderful finish, Wendy! Love the way you showcased each designer's blocks by putting them in vertical rows. You are absolutely amazing and AQSG is going to love you for this fabulous donation :) P.S. Do you ever sleep? I'm beginning to wonder.

  12. What an awesome finish and a beautiful donation quilt. Someone will adore having it. Using the potholder method definitely gets a sampler quilt done before the ink drys. Love the way you set it together to highlight each designer.
