Welcome to Quiltmaker’s 100 Blocks Kick-Off Blog Tour

I’m honored to once again have a block featured in

Quiltmaker’s 100 Blocks from Today’s Top Designers Volume 6!!!

It’s a new issue with 100 more original blocks complete with full instructions.

I submitted this block last spring when I was knee-deep in preparations with

my new “Baby Love” book.

We all have opportunities to sew quilts for babies at some point in time.

I can see so many possibilities with this block.

Make just one block and have a cute center focal point.

By adding a few borders to this block, it can quickly make a small baby quilt or wall hanging.

If a more generous size quilt is what you’re after,

make 5 “Baby” blocks and set them with 4, 12″ coordinating fabric squares to make this 42″ baby quilt.

As you know, the possibilities are endless.

Of course there is a give-away!

To enter to win a free copy of the new 100 Blocks Volume 6,

go UP, UP, UP to the TOP of this post and leave a comment letting me know how many baby quilts you’ve sewn so far.

If you’d like a chance to win a pattern of your choice from my website

Subscribe to my blog and leave me another comment telling me which of my patterns you would like to win.

If you’re already a subscriber let me know that in your comment along with your favorite pattern choice.

Two winners will be drawn for a free pattern.

Respond before midnight Tuesday to win the drawings,

and don’t forget to leave your email address.

Please visit the other bloggers this week, by going to Quiltmaker’s blog for the complete list.

There are lots of great prizes all week long.

Thanks for stopping by & good luck!

Until next time,

Quilts from Quiltmaker’s 100 Blocks Fall’12

Welcome to Quiltmaker’s on-line kickoff!

Once again, I’d like to introduce you to a new magazine.

The wonderful folks at Quiltmaker have come up with another volume of their new publication,

Quilts from Quiltmaker’s 100 Blocks, Fall ’12

To answer your question; yes, I have a quilt included in this volume!

If you remember, I introduced my “No Ordinary Flake” block from Volume 2 here.

I showed you what you could do if you made 16 of those blocks and set them together with sashing.

I still love the look of this quilt!


When Volume 4 was released I introduced you to my Santa block here.

I showed you how you could make a tablerunner with this block, remember?

For this new magazine, the folks at Quiltmaker

asked designers to submit designs

using multiple blocks from past 100 Blocks issues to make quilts, tablerunners, etc.

Since I love to sew for Christmas…

I decided a quilt using those two blocks would be a nice mix.

Just 4 Santa blocks & a few flakes and you’re on your way to a new quilt!

I almost forgot. I’m a centerfold.

Well, my pattern is.

When you get your magazine, you’ll see my quilt right there in the middle with the applique sheet.

Don’t you love the bright, cheery Christmas fabrics?

They are Northcott’s Christmas Classics by Deborah Edwards.

If you’d like a chance to win a copy of the new issue,

go up, up, up,

to the top of this blog post and

leave a comment including your email address today.

For a chance win more fun stuff, go to

Quiltmaker’s blog, Quilty Pleasures.

From there be sure to visit the other bloggers participating too.

If you’d like a chance to win a free Suzn Quilts Pattern,

just subscribe to my blog.

In your comment let me know which of my patterns is your favorite and if you win I will put it in the mail to you.

You can view all of my patterns by visiting my website.

I will choose two winners for a free pattern.

If you are already a subscriber, let me know that and I will enter you in the drawing.

Thanks for joining in the fun.

Look for the new magazine at your local quilt shop or on your favorite newsstand today.
