We’re always excited to included in the who is who of quilting. You can read more about the magazine and find the bloggers that are featured by following this link.

For me I love to check out Bonnie Hunter’s block. It’s often a clue of block she’ll be using in an upcoming quilt. You’ll have to follow along over the next week to get your own peak at her block.
Here is our block…
We love designing a block that would make a nice Quilt of Valor quilt block. Over the years we often design something in red, white and blue for that very reason. This block would look great side by side in a simple 6 x 7 setting.
I sure think it would be a fun quilt!! It’s on my someday list. I’m sorry I can’t make the red part look like string blocks…you’ll have to image that. Regardless I think it would make a great Quilt of Valor.
If you ever decide to give out block a try we’d love to see it.
We do have a couple of issues of 100 blocks to give away. One will come directly from Quiltmaker…the other will come with us and will be autographed.
Leave a comment here in the comment section answering the question have you ever donated a quilt whether it be to a veteran and a program like Quilt of Valor, or to a nursing home resident, benefit or the like. We have a great charity project here on our blog. You can read about it here.
We’ll pick two winners next week…. the 1st winner we pick will get a copy of Quiltmaker’s 100 blocks AND an American Patchwork and Quilting Calendar that we have a quilt featured in.
