Moda Blockheads 3

Janet Clare - Moda Blockheads 3 - Windmill Block

Hello and welcome to my last week as a Moda blockheads 3 designer. It’s been so much fun sewing along with you all and a great distraction from the ugly real world out there!

I grew up on the Kent coast not too far from the White Cliffs of Dover and we spent a lot of time as children on the sandy beaches building sandcastles and playing in the rockpools. We used to decorate our sandcastles with shells, seaweed and pebbles but every once in a while we were treated to a real paper windmil!

My block features four windmills and is quick and simple to piece particularly if you follow my technique for making eight half square triangles at the same time.

I’ve been making my Blockheads quilt with my Geometry fabric collection and have been loving the sharp green accents with my favourite indigo and cream colour palette.

My newest fabric collection is called ‘The Blues’ and here’s a little video of me describing my inspiration and design process. This video was edited by our sixteen year old and I think he did a brilliant job (I might be a tad biased though!).

So, without further ado, click here to download the pattern for our ‘Windmills’ block!

When you’ve made yours please share it in the Moda Blockheads 3 Facebook group and a little Moda bird tells me there is a ‘The Blues’ layer cake ready to be won by a lucky Blockhead!
