Quiltmaker's 100 Blocks Blog Tour

When I was asked to submit a block for Quiltmaker's 100 Blocks, I knew it had to be a block made from 2 1/2" strips. What else? I had just bought several pieces of Holly Taylor's fabric collection, Frosted Memories, and couldn't wait to use it. I decided to use it for my sample block. You'll find my block, along with 99 others, in this single publication!


To celebrate its release, Quiltmaker is hosting the 100 Blocks Blog Tour. Follow it daily November 9-13 at Quiltmaker's blog, Quilty Pleasures, for inspiration, ideas and daily give-aways. They're even giving away the blocks featured in the magazine! Different blogs will be listed every day, so be sure to visit them all -- there may be a special prize at the end of the week.

Some lucky person will win a copy of Quiltmaker's 100 Blocks here, too! Just leave a comment. I'll announce the winner tomorrow around 8:00 p.m. CDT.

Don't forgot to look for Quiltmaker's 100 Blocks from Today’s Top Designers in your local quilt shop, or purchase it at quiltmaker.com/100blocks.

Happy touring!

Kim
