Hello and happy Wednesday friends! Today is Moda Block Heads 3 Block 31 pattern release day, and this week’s block is a cute and simple basket block. Keep reading for tips and tricks, and to find out about some fun news coming your way at the end of the week!
Moda Block Heads 3 Block 31
I love a fun basket block, and this week’s block is simple to piece and cute. I used a low-volume background to add a little sparkle and used another fabric for the basket base with a third fabric for the basket handles. A scrappy basket handle would be really fun for this block as well.

Block 31 Tips & Tricks
This week’s block is fast and fun! Carefully cut the squares and rectangles, and either use triangle paper or make the half-square triangles larger and trim to the exact size needed.

Hi Sherry, In trying to find out which blocks actually have alternate blocks to them, or that others have made in place of the original 31 blocks.
I want to get all the Patterns, of both, and would appreciate your help.
Have a Blessed Sunday!! ?
