Here are a few really bad pictures of my finished Moda Blockhead 2 quilt. Finished in time for Halloween, I might add. This quilt was a lot of fun to make.  A few of the blocks challenged me and taught me new things. 

I quilted it on my Janome. Certainly not perfect, but DONE.

Several of the Moda blocks (especially the applique blocks) were replaced with others. Nothing was paper pieced.

I didn't use a fabric line.  I used Halloween fabrics I have been collecting over the years. The only real yardage I had was the background shown in the orange and purple block below. I started with 5 yards of that fabric and used almost all of it.

And now on to a complete opposite color scheme quilt.  This is Lori Holt's Vintage Block Along.  Lori posted the first block on December 31, 2018.  When she showed a picture of a few of the blocks up on her design wall I couldn't help myself I had to join in.  I made my first block in August and finally caught up this week.  There are so many blocks (34 to date) I've had to pin them on top of each other on my design wall.  The finished blocks range anywhere from 3" to 18" so it should be an interesting layout. 

Happy Quilting,
