Moda Blockheads BOW #26 of 48


This week’s Blockhead is called the Cat’s Cradle by Betsy Chutchian. I love blocks that allow me to use a focal square in the middle, especially if I can fussy cut. As I have added my fat chickens on several blocks already, this time the rooster received center stage.

This was another fun block to work on but I have to admit using Jack the Ripper when I sewed those little rust colored triangles to the wrong side of the HST on all six blocks. Grrr.

Looking forward to seeing what other blocks come from this wonderful pattern.

I am a retired grandmother living in hot and sunny 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 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. Hi Peggy,
    Oh darn it – I hate when that happens. Maybe it could have stayed that way – creative license? I love the rooster in the middle! These blocks sure are coming together nicely, and you do such a super job on them. ~smile~ Roseanne

  2. I think I have that chicken fabric! I picked it out of the remnants bin at the store and decided to make some hand towels with it for Christmas presents. I love the fabric it’s so cute. And your little chicken looks quite proud in the middle there!
