It’s day one of the Quiltmaker 100 Blocks, Volume 10 Blog Tour! There will be great blogs to see all week, as well as lots of opportunities to win prizes (because what’s a blog hop without prizes? Am I right, or am I right??) Read through this post to find out how YOU can win!
If you’ve been collecting the Quiltmaker’s 100 Blocks issues, and if you are fairly decent at Math, you may have already figured out that this issue brings the total number of Block patterns published to 1000. That’s a lot of blocks and quilts and fabulous sewing projects!!
I have contributed blocks to several issues of this publication. My block in issue #10 is called “Grandma’s Favorite.” It features machine applique and HST’s (half-square triangle units). I think it’s pretty and cheerful, a little vintage, a little “cottage-y”, and just a tad modern.
With this block, you could make a quilt like this:
Or a wall hanging like this:
Or a table runner like this:
We had fun at Quilt Market, putting together a video to promote this special issue. My “critically acclaimed” and “highly anticipated” appearance in this video (BWAHAHAHAHA……) comes at the 1:32 mark (I had to do mine twice, because the first time, right in the middle, there was an announcement coming over the convention center speakers):
And now, as promised, your chance to win some prizes! I am giving away 3 copies of Quiltmaker 100 Blocks Volume 10. Here is how you can enter:
- *Comment on this blog post and tell me- what is your favorite quilt-block-making technique? Do you like to just piece? Paper piece? Add a little embroidery or applique??
- *Make sure I can contact you through email- if you post anonymously, or are a “no-reply blogger,” and I cannot easily contact you- I will have to choose another name.
- *This is open to US and international readers.
- *Post by 11:59 EST on Sunday, November 23, 2014.
