I’m honored to be part of the second volume of Quiltmaker’s 100 Blocks.

While vending at Minnesota’s International Quilt Market in May, I was asked to submit a block to be considered for this issue.  What an honor to be selected along with 99 other talented quilt designers. 

My block, #140 “No Ordinary Flake” is featured on page 41.

 I used civil war fabrics that I collected while in Minnesota for spring quilt market.  And by “collected” I mean Celine, Robin & I had to visit at least four different quilt shops in the Minneapolis area so I had fabric for this block submittal.  What a girl has to go through!

 Now for the really exciting part, if you leave a comment (Back at the top by the date) on my blog between now and Wednesday night you will be entered to win a free copy of this issue!   I will draw a lucky winner Thursday morning.  Be sure and leave an email address so I can contact the winner.  Also visit Quiltmaker.com because they are giving away lots of other prizes, including the original signed blocks from this issue, and some of my “Best Friends” books to name only a few.

Good Luck & Have Fun!

Until next time,

Susan
