Moda Blockheads 35, 36, 37
Gibby by Laurie Simpson and Rolling Stone by Jo Morton. I love how fast and easily Gibby went together. Since the pieces were 1 1/2" x 2 1/2" I had plenty of leftovers from other blocks to use! Rolling Stone was also fast due to the smaller size and easy piecing.
With Dreamy by Sherri McConnell I knew I could use more leftovers and go really scrappy...or take some shortcuts on making my blocks by sewing some strips and subdividing them.
First I gathered some 2 1/2" strips and combined them in groups of three and joined them.
Then by lining up my Creative Grids ruler on the 2 1/2" line I could sub-cut these. Then 3 rows became my 9-patch squares. I am a big fan of Creative Grids due to that extra 1/2" side for easy lining up and measuring for cutting with seam allowances (or flip to the other side to measure from a solid inch). When making multiple blocks some steps like this can really save some time.

I am pretty sure that it's going to be a huge privilege if I will be sewing with Moda Blockheads! I know that they have been very great in his field and you will surely learn from the experience! If I am given these pieces, I wouldn't know how to make use of it and I don't know how to creatively sew it. But of course, I will be trying because giving up in an instant has never been my personality. If I learn then that's good, but if not, at least I have tried.
