Hi Folks! -
I’ve followed the Blockheads sew-a-long in the past years, so I was so pleased to be invited to add a block this time around! My block is called ‘Gentleman’s Fancy’ & I chose it in honor of my Dad.
One of the words that folks used to describe my Dad was ‘dapper’ & so this block seemed perfect! (When I was a little girl, my Dad was actually chosen as one of the best dressed businessmen in San Diego, & I remember a newspaper article & they had him ‘model suits, for photos for the article!)
Even into his ‘sunset’ years, he still was a snappy dresser.
I chose to use some of the fabrics from my upcoming ‘The Shores’ fabric collection, & I’m so excited to see all of the versions that folks create! I love that Moda gives options for each blocks… & now I want to make it in all the options! You can find the ‘Gentleman’s Fancy’ block here - https://my.modafabrics.com/webfiles/bh4_23_brenda-riddle_gentlemans-fancy.pdf
I hope you have fun making your ‘Gentleman’s Fancy’ block!
I just discovered one of your patterns online, looked up your website and I have to say it felt like a breath of fresh air! I LOVE your patterns and fabric choices. I can’t wait to make some quilts using your patterns. Thank you thank you!
You have a blessed Christmas as well ❤️
Thank you for bringing us a block with a little unique twist in construction. It made my day.

Such a wonderful way to honor your father. Love his pictures you posted. Your new collection looks beautiful.
Loved your Gentleman’s Fancy block and your honoring your Dad. My Dad was also a ‘dapper dresser’ back in the day!
What a great tribute to Dad!!
