Missing the Moda Blockheads Quilt-Along? Do this while waiting for round 3

Blocks from Moda BlockheadsAre you a Moda Blockhead? The Moda Blockheads Quilt-Along round two has come to an end. 😢 But we have an idea that will keep you in stitches while you wait for round three to begin—start, continue, or finish your round-one Moda Blockheads quilt!

(Not a Blockhead yet? You can jump in at any time!)

Although the block patterns featured in round one are no longer available online, they are available in book form—instructions for all 48 blocks plus directions for setting your finished blocks in six glorious layouts. The book? Moda Blockheads, of course!
