Today is the day to kick off Quiltmaker’s 100 Block Magazine Blog Hop. If you are new to our blog, welcome-welcome. We love new visitors. We are a very active blog with new posts twice a day. There is always something new here to read about. We hope you stop back often…
My daughter Kelli and I (we work together) have been lucky enough to be part of it for a few editions now and we always love the fun hopping around and seeing what everyone is up to….I’m guessing as a blog reader it’s something you enjoy as well.
Here’s how it all works. You read our blog here and leave a comment for a chance to win an issue of the new edition-volume #9- coming out to your local news stand on May 6th. Then hop on over to Quiltmaker’s blog Quilty Pleasures to see the list of all the other blogs who are participating. Hop over to their blogs for your chance to win an issue there.
Here’s a preview of what the new issue looks like.
Kelli and I got our issue a couple weeks ago and have had a blast checking out all the fun blocks and dreaming up ways to use them in a quilt.
Our block is patriotic again. Kelli always teases that everything I design is patriotic and honestly, left all on my own, I might be tempted to write an entire quilt book of only patriotic designs….I believe a person can’t go wrong with anything red, white and blue.
Our block is #838 and is called American Crossroads. Believe it or not, part of it is paper pieced. That is VERY unusual for me!!! In fact, when I told Kelli I designed a block that was paper pieced, she checked to see if I was ill.
That’s all for now from us. Stop back tomorrow, we’re planning a little giveaway of our own- but before you go leave a comment here telling what your favorite size of quilting project is to make…
For Kelli and I, it’s a real challenge for us to make anything that is smaller than a queen sized quilt.
