Quiltmaker’s 100 Blocks Blog Tour

Welcome to our celebration for the upcoming release of Quiltmaker’s 100 Blocks Volume 9.  We are so happy to have our blocks appear in this issue.

QMMS 140044 cover 500 100 Blocks Blog Tour: Day 3, Giveaway!

In this issue is my Love Buds block.

As well as my sister’s, Joanne’s Spring Smile block.

I think these are both such happy blocks.  A great way to welcome spring!

Now that we’ve shown you our blocks, how about some setting ideas.

With just one Love Buds block and a checkered border you could make a small wall hanging.

How about a sweet runner using two Love Buds blocks bordered with some double four patch blocks?

You could make a table topper using four Spring Smile blocks bordered with diamond in the square blocks.

Using just sixteen Spring Smile blocks, you could create a larger lap sized quilt.

Or you could go big with this bed sized quilt using twenty-eight Spring Smile blocks!

How will you set your blocks? So many possibilities!

Be sure to leave a comment on this post letting us know about your all-time favorite quilt that you’ve made and you will be entered in a drawing to win a copy of Quiltmaker’s 100 Blocks Volume 9! The winner will be posted here on Monday!

Be sure to visit the Gingham Girls website and check out our new patterns!

No ribbon but I got some very nice feedback from the judges. Thanks for the giveaway!

    My favorite quilt was one I made for my father. It has lots of Scottie dogs, dogs on leashes, and fabric with dog bones. It is red, white, blue, and black. I made it so he could take a nap with his doggy on a “doggy approved” quilt.

  30. Gwen Wehner says:

    Two sweet blocks! I am currently doing a full-size hand applique project. Considering the amount of time being spent on it, it had better be my absolute favorite when it is done!!
