Quilt Blocks

Quiltmaker’s 100 Blocks Blog Tour

My Block is in

It’s that time of year again!–Time for the Quiltmaker’s 100 Blocks blog tour.  I can’t believe that this is the 10th issue of this fantastic publication.  Quilty Pleasures is featuring great giveaways during the blog tour and listing all of the participants for each day so you will want to make sure to stop over there.

100 Blocks Cover

I was excited to make it onto the cover of this issue–it’s always fun seeing it there.  Can you guess which one it is?…. I’ll narrow it down for you:

Cover Block

But even more exciting, in my opinion was being block #1000!  I’ve got a thing for numbers but even if I didn’t, this one would be pretty cool.  Being at the end of the alphabet sometimes pays off. =p

Block 1000

This was such a fun block to design and make.  And, it’s a perfect Star Block for a little Christmas quilt if you are still looking for Christmas ideas… 😉

Block

That little mini star in the center is my favorite part.

Block Center

As always, I played around a bit with the block in EQ and this layout quickly became my favorite:

Serendipity Stars Quilt

It’s a very versatile block!–I hope you enjoy it!

I would wish for “one on one” sewing training on my new sewing machine (and maybe even a new, different sewing machine instead of a couple of hours interrupted with other customers coming in and out needing attention while I tried to learn this new machine – not being charged to learn how to use each foot.” Santa and those elves might want to give me a special training course.

    After that, anything at all would be nice…a book or two or three, maybe some chocolate, a silpat mat for my cookie sheet, or just a kiss and a cuddle!

  • I would love a visit from one of my grown-up children; if not that, I would love holiday pictures from each of them!

  • I am hoping for EQ7, or gift cards to LQS or online fabric stores 🙂

  • I love your block…especially in Christmas colors or spring colors for a special Easter gift 🙂 This year I am looking forward to uninterrupted reading time, and a book I order for my husband to give me 🙂 Biography of Isaac Singer 🙂 oh, and chocolate…. must. have. chocolate 🙂

  • I would like a Kithenaide mixer. My hand mixer bit the dust! And my stand mixer was a wedding present almost 39 years ago. Very nice block – I too love the mini star in the center! Thanks for the chance to win. HUGS… and stitches

  • new coat.

  • My wish is not sewing related at all. I want doors for my kitchen cupboards. Haven’t had any for years. {Waiting on the procrastinator.}

  • I’m wishing for my mom to be able to visit for Christmas. A hip problem may delay that trip.

  • I got my present already, at least that’s what my husband said as I opened up my latest fabric order that had come in the mail. So I guess I got what I wanted…more fabric. Now I just need to get a copy of this 100 block magazine so I can sew up some new blocks. kthurn@bektel.com

  • I love your block! And so lucky to be #1000! I am getting a new sewing table for Christmas, so I am one happy camper.

  • All I really want is to spend time with my grand-daughter. But fabric or thread of any type would be acceptable as well.

  • If I’m going to dream, I might as well dream big – and APQS Millenium.

  • Love you block and the quilt work up you did. Thank you for the chance to win.

  • Love, love, love your block! Might be because I’m partial to stars…. For Christmas I would like to have time to quilt.

  • Other than seeing my children happy on Christmas morning, I guess I’d like some fabric or new pots and pans (yawn).

  • Time. There doesn’t seem to be enough hours in a day after work and family-time to get much crafting done.
