Moda Blockheads 2: Block 5
If you’re new here, welcome! I’m Vanessa Goertzen, the designer behind Lella Boutique fabrics for Moda and newbie to the Moda Blockheads design team. I’m sharing Block no. 5 today and it’s a big one (24” x 24” finished). Meet Block no. 5 “Impact.“
This is what happens when flying geese crash. Boom!
You can see a couple different color placement options for mine, but of course there are many more. I can’t wait to see how ya’ll interpret this block. My fabric is Garden Variety–my newest collection shipping in October.
When I first designed this Impact block, I liked the idea of making more blocks and putting them into a full quilt. Which you could totally do as is. But I started playing around, making a few alterations the block, and eventually came up with the Bling quilt in Lollipop Garden fabrics. With fewer flying geese, the Bling block is slightly smaller (20” x 20” finished) and features an accent square in the center. The full quilt is 84 1/2” x 84 1/2” set on point and can be made using 26 fat eighths or 13 fat quarters. PDF pattern is available here.
