Moda Blockheads BOW-Block#19

 

I enjoy Wednesdays because it is Blockheads day. Today is Block #19 of 48 and it is called Night Flight by designer Lynn Hagmeier of Kansas Troubles Quilters. It is another of my favorites. I like doing flying geese and I can see improvements each time. I still have an issue with my corners sometimes but I will eventually get them.

Picture #2 is the blocks I have completed so far. I think I did the alternative block in addition to the main block once as I have 20 blocks.

All blocks and instructions to make each can be found at the Moda Fabrics website. I like seeing all the different blocks that is produced from the one pattern.

I am a retired grandmother living in sunny and hot Florida. I spend most of my days doing what I love: sewing and quilting. I have a spoiled rotten Boston Terrier named Sami who keeps me busy mostly by cleaning up after her and refilling holes in the yard that she insists on digging and burying her toys. Of course then she digs them up and brings them into the house resulting in...you guessed it...more cleaning. I will be posting pictures of Sami, quilts, flowers, and other things as they come along. Glad to have you join me.

  1. I really enjoy sampler quilts and your is looking great. I did not know that Mode was having a block party, so thank you for the link. Although I am really behind, I might try to make some of the blocks myself. Great post! Happing sewing~

      1. Grandmas kitchen as well! I only found out about it Friday so I did the first two blocks on Sunday. I like it bc it’s forcing me to try new things. I don’t like it bc it’s taking my out of my comfort zone and I don’t like not having full control of what the end piece will look like 😂

      2. That’s exactly my concerns but we will work through it. These are the only QAL that I have participated in and so far it is fun. I figure if I really mess up a block I will throw it away and never mention it again. 🙂

  2. Hi Peggy,
    I’m a recent fan of flying geese. They used to intimidate me, and I was not very good at making the block. Now, my cutting and sewing have improved that I can notice the difference. When the pieces fit together the way they are meant to, it’s a good thing!! Congrats to your improvement. ~smile~ Roseanne

  3. I’ve tried lots of methods for flying geese. I purchased the Jodi Barrows “system” called Square in a Square (ruler/book/dvd) last year and when I was working on my Bonnie Hunter Talkin’ Turkey there were hundreds of FG to make. Using Jodi’s ruler/system, I have had the best success with making them in quality and quantity!
