Another Day, Another Blockhead Block

And finally it's warm in Missouri - mostly.

So I changed the quilt on my bed to one of my Spring/Summer quilts "Spring Break.
The pattern was featured in Primitive Quilts and Projects magazine a couple of years ago but its been long enough that I put the pattern in my store this week.  


And to celebrate I put the BOM pattern on sale for 25% off this week.


You can order it by clicking here.

Don't you just love Lori's quilting?


The Moda Blockheads Block for this week is 
Square Within a Square by Betsy Chutchian.
You can download the pattern by going to her blog 
and you can link to her blog by clicking here.

And TA-Da!  I finally found the list of questions we're supposed to be answering.

The question for today is "When you teach what is the one tip you always share?"
A primary tool in doing applique is a sandpaper board.  It holds the fabric in place while you draw around the pattern ensuring that the fabric pattern is the same shape as the paper pattern.  

And since next week is my week again and, as we all know by now, I do appliqué,  I found the link to my basic tutorial on Freezer Paper Appliqué which includes the use of the sandpaper board.
You can watch the tutorial by clicking here.  

We carry sandpaper boards in our store and you can order one by clicking here or you can simply glue a piece of fine sandpaper to the back of a clipboard or a piece of cardboard.

Now - lets go to the other designers and see what they did with their blocks.


Have a great week ladies and meet me back here next Wednesday for Week #15 of the Moda Blockheads BOW.
