Welcome old and new readers….If you’re new you might not know about our many free patterns that you can find along the right hand column or you might not know about our never ending house remodel…of you might not know that we have our own quilt book coming out in February of 2015. There is always lots going on here and we’re always sharing. To stay up to date follow us in Facebook….enough of that though, onto the blog hop.
Have you been hopping around blog land taking part in Quiltmaker’s 10,000 Block Blog Hop??? Well it’s actually the 100 Block blog hop but being this is volume 10…and there’s a 100 blocks in each issue, that makes it 10,000 BLOCKS!!
Kelli and I are so honored to be part of the fun. This is our 4th issue that we’ve been featured in. Quite often we do a patriotic block but this time Kelli won out and the block isn’t patriotic.
I was playing around on the computer and came up with the idea of this block. Kelli loved it but then she asked what size the pieces were – I just shrugged and said you can figure that out, right?!?!
Let’s just say she shot me a not too happy face….but she’s a trouper and before long, she had it all figured out.
In the meantime I played on the computer some more and putting blocks together and came up with this design.
The crew at Quiltmaker came up with another design that we like too. The set their design on point.
We ended up making our quilt only adding more blocks and making it bigger. We used some really fun fabric from Moda. It was a Halloween line, Eerie by Basic Grey.
I can’t wait to show it to you live and in person. It’s really fun. I quilted big whimsical spiders in the quilting design. We won’t get this one back until spring so you’ll have to wait to see it then.
You’ll likely want to take a moment to hop over to Quiltmaker’s Quilty Pleasures blog. Each day of the hop they are giving away wonderful goodies, quilt books, fabric, notions and the like.
We love working with Quiltmaker and were very honored to be asked to be part of this issue.
But before you go Quiltmaker is giving an issue away to one of our readers. Just leave a comment here in the comment section telling if you have purchased a 100 Block issue before.
