To complement the 100 Block series, check out the latest issue of Quilts from Quiltmaker’s 100 Blocks which hits the newsstands September 4th. In this issue you will find lots of wonderful ideas how to use those blocks featured in past issues of 100 Blocks.
If you have been following along through Quiltmaker’s 100 Block series, you may have seen my “Buckle Up” block in Quiltmaker’s 100 Blocks Volume 4.
I had such fun making this block, playing with all kinds of fabric combinations for the baskets and flowers. Did you notice my use of the yellow gingham for the baskets sash? That’s because every Gingham Girl creation needs to have a bit of gingham in it!
Starting with the original block, I expanded the block into a runner using vines flowing from the basket and added flowers along this new vine. To frame my runner I added a border repeating the belt and buckle from the original block.
