Block Heads 2 - Block 40

I'm channeling Carol Burnett... I'm so glad we had this time together, just to have a laugh or sew a block. Seems we just get started and before you know it... wait, we're not done! We've still got thirteen weeks to go!

We start the last round of Block Heads 2 blocks today with Lynne Hagmeier's Ribbon Star - Block 40. Lynne has a terrific blog post looking back on 2018 - A Look Back.

We've also got the Final Quilt Assembly Layout and digital images of the quilts - without the last thirteen blocks. But first Lynne's block...

Michele's block - the fabrics are from Jo Morton's Timeless collection.

Block 40 - Ribbon Star.

When we started Block Heads 1 - we didn't know it was No. 1 at the time - we didn't have a layout. We were going to make blocks and let everybody "do their thing" for a setting. As much fun as that was, we wanted to do something very different this time.

A random set sampler with mixed sizes of blocks.

To do that, we had to start with a plan. A layout - that came first.

This is the quilt minus the last thirteen blocks. (Lynne has an image with Ribbon Star placed.) I know, the image is odd-looking. It's like an incomplete puzzle.

We also have the Final Quilt Assembly diagrams complete. This is what's included:

  • Basic instructions for assembly.
  • Layout with the blocks placed by number.
  • Layout with the blocks placed by size.
  • An assembly layout for each of the four parts of the quilt top.

Lynne says Hi - and get busy.

That's it for this week and Block 40.
