Moda Blockheads 4

Moda Blockheads 4: (Block 15)

Happy Wednesday! There is yet again a new block for Moda Blockheads 4 free block of the week. The new little darling comes to us from Crystal Manning. Meet Block 15: “Highland Plaid.” Be sure to visit Crystal’s blog today to download the free block pattern.

Block 15 “Highland Plaid”

I’m a sucker for any quilt that mimics a plaid or gingham sort of design. In fact, I’ve been meaning to make a gingham quilt in Flower Pot fabrics and am really hoping to still get on that. There is nothing super tricky about piecing this block – besides the small pieces required for the 4.5″ finished version.

Fabric

The first block is made in Love Note. As I looked at my pile of Love Note blocks, I felt like the blue category was a bit neglected so I focused on those hues this time around. Look at that cute little fussy-cut center block. Aw.

This second set is made in Flower Pot. There are a number of ways you could play with color placement and arrangement here and these show just a couple of them.

      Well I haven’t posted it on this blog post yet (I’m not supposed to post the direct link until Friday and in the meantime it’s on Crystal’s blog). Is that where you found a corrupted file? This is the direct link: https://my.modafabrics.com/webfiles/bh4_15_crystal-manning_highland-plaid.pdf

        Thank you for the link and the pattern. I love that this block gives us more uses for our smaller scrap pieces from leftover projects. Its adorable and provides us with an ability to use smaller scrap fabric that we might otherwise toss.

    BH 4 Block 15 is not showing up on my computer. There is no place that it said to down load the instruction.
    I look forward to your email to see what you have in mind each week for your pattern. Thank you but please help me to download this next block.

      Hi Christeen!
      I’m supposed to wait until Friday to post the direct link – were you able to get it on Crystal’s blog or is that where it caused problems? This is the direct link:

      Hi Nancy!
      So the new block is only supposed to be available on the designer’s blog on Wednesday so I didn’t post it yet (but I did post where you can find it on Crystal’s blog). Were you unable to find it there? I’m allowed to add the direct link to my post tomorrow (Friday). But here’s the direct link anyway. (shh!) Hope that helps!
