If you know me, you know I LOVE quilt alongs! So when Moda announced Block Heads 2, I jumped right on the band wagon!
The first block is by Lynne Hagmeier and called Stellar Star! I’m in love with this block, and it’s part of the reason I decided to join. I had the perfect fabric for it — Poppy Mae by Robin Pickens for Moda Fabrics.
After finishing the block, I realized that I still have three other quilt along projects on my UFO list. Did I really need another one? I waited for the next two blocks to come out and just didn’t have the strong love for them that I had for Block 1. So I decided just to finish this block as a mini and move on!
It was freeing to not be sucked into another big project that I wasn’t passionate about. Summer is for fast finishes and enjoying sewing!
I simply finished this block with green Aurifil thread using straight-line quilting, and black binding to really help the colors pop!
Have you ever abandoned a project? Did it feel guilty or freeing?
Thanks for joining me for “happy hour,”
