Moda Blockheads 4 (Bonus Block 5)
Surprise, surprise! Another bonus block day. Meet Bonus Block 5: “Wheat Field” by Moda Fabrics. I’m heading out of town this morning – so I didn’t end up having time to piece this one yet. For now, you get digital mockups instead.
Bonus Block 5 “Wheat Field”
“Wheat Field” is a quick block to assemble and friendly to all skill levels. The block utilizes a simple easy-corner triangle (stitch and flip) method. I’ll be making the 4.5″ finished version. NOTE: If making the 4.5″ finished size, please note the A and C rectangles should be 1-5/8″ x 2-3/4″ (not 1-5/8″ x 5″). (Moda has corrected the file on their end and I am just waiting for an updated link.)
Also – this is obviously a mockup – so it does not show the seams breaking up the “diamond” shape in the center that is formed by bringing 4 easy corners of the same print together.
The first two blocks in this post are in Flower Pot fabric – now available in shops! Coincidentally, I’m giving away a fat quarter bundle of Flower Pot this weekend – so be sure to check out the giveaway post here and enter before 5.31.2022.
This last block will be sewn with Love Note fabric. It reminds me of a paper windmill you might see at a parade or something. So sweet.

Have a great weekend (and Happy Memorial weekend to the US crowd). 🙂

Beautiful blocks. How did you make the center square all one piece?

This is just a mockup – the real block would have that “diamond” center broken up by seams.

Downloaded the pattern “Wheat Field” but it doesn’t seem to match the picture you provided.

Oh my goodness, you’re so right! I forgot the corners on the top part. I’ll get those fixed in a few min 🙂

Thanks! I love both options!

I kind of like this version of the block, too. I am so impressed with people who are able to “see” a pattern and make it something different. Might have to see if I can copy your revision, in addition to making Wheat Field. Now, off to find a fat quarter bundle of Flower Pot. Love your designs.

Thank you! I already “corrected” the block mockups (I put them up way too late last night) but it really is fun to see that a mistake can sometimes create another cool idea 🙂

Choosing 5 favorite patterns is not easy. I already have several of your patterns, so not counting those…
Lovey Dovey (my mother’s first name was Dovie), Sparkler, Pure Country (genius design), Home Again, and Haven.
Thank you for putting your beautiful fabrics and designs out into the world for us!!

Love your patterns
I bought your airplane pattern last year and made 2 quilts…turned out terrific. Most Fat Quarters I wanted to use were too short. The only ones that really worked were batiks which I could fudge on the selvages. When I got all the blocks made, I saw I could cut down the block. Lesson learned. Thank you again.
