Hello and happy Wednesday! Happy Halloween if you are celebrating today…and welcome to Block Heads day here on the blog where I’m sharing Moda Block Heads 2 Block 29. This week’s block is brought to us by Carrie Nelson of Miss Rosie’s Quilt Company. Her block is a Courthouse Step block finishing at 6″ x 6″, and you can make it as scrappy as you’d like! Be sure to read to the end of today’s post because I’m having a little giveaway here on the blog!
This week’s block is front and center with all of the other 6″ finished blocks so far as a supporting cast. These “group photos” are always favorite ones for me to take each week. I once again used Walkabout fabric scraps for my block, using five different prints from my scrap bin.
I think I could definitely make a whole quilt of these fun little blocks. It sure would be a great stash-busting quilt. And you wouldn’t even have to use pairs of fabrics–the whole block could really be scrappy. There are so many possibilities.

I’ll be heading to quilt market later this week and will have some posts scheduled for while I’m away. But I’ll also have lots to share when I return. I think it would be fun to have a little post-market giveaway with some swag I’ll bring home from Quilt Market. Just leave a comment on this post letting me know what you’d like me to share from this year’s market. I’ll pick a winner next week when I return home. Happy Quilting, and thanks so much for stopping by!

It would be great to see any new tools/rulers you find that you think might be a timesaver. Also sharing your thoughts on any new trends would be interesting too.

Love all the colors. The blocks are sew pretty.
Photos please! I love seeing all of the booths and new quilts that designers have to show us. My Arcade/Sea Glass quilt was auctioned this past weekend and it brought in $500 which is awesome…and I was asked to make another one yesterday by someone who saw it at the fundraiser! I tried looking thru all of your posts last nite to see when your kits were going to be available. I couldn’t find it, but I have January in my head?? Will you let me know pls?? Thx.
