Block Heads 10: Autumnal

Good Morning friends and welcome! I’m so very glad you’re here and feeling honored to share my block, Autumnal, with you all for Moda Block Heads today! It was an absolute joy to be invited on the Moda Block Heads train especially since I adore my fellow designers and friends I get to participate with. This is my very first Block Heads experience and I’m having a wonderful time. A couple highlights have been making the beautiful blocks and of course learning more about my fellow designers. What a treat to be sewing blocks they have designed!

I want to first start off by saying that having a weekly sew along is a great way to stay organized and goal oriented. This is something I have been trying to implement into my own sewing life and have found Block Heads to be a huge success in particular to this goal. It has also been a great way to use my scraps! I am primarily using fabrics from our Emma collection, but will be adding in fabrics from past groups too. My block featured above uses a Bella 200 background and two red prints from our Emma fabrics. I like to mix and match basic prints with floral prints. Its a great way to show off different prints, but you can always make it scrappy with more prints.

It can also be fun to opt for a darker background and low volume look as well! This is a great way to show off some low volume prints as the main focal point in your block! Autumnal already gives off such sweet simplicity so both color ways in my blocks work well. I also want to note that I am making the 9″ finished block size for all of my quilt blocks. This block is beginner friendly and uses simple piecing techniques. Keep reading to find the pattern!
