100 Blocks Magazine!

It’s that time of year again!
And guess who is featured in the new Quiltmaker’s 100 Block, Volume 12


ME!


And it’s so fun to see it here in print!!!




Here it is in real life, up close and personal.



I used the Clover, large size, Kanzashi Flower maker to construct the flower. I would add this after the quilt has been quilted normally to avoid your quilter giving you the evil eye!


The block can be combined with other blocks for interesting combinations. I’ve tried them out using Electric Quilt. This makes it easy to try many different combinations without wasting a lot of time in trial and error with materials. You can see what it will look like before you start cutting those expensive fabrics. .  EQ makes it easy to color your images as well.



Or you can use the single block, and rotate them.



So many possibilities!

All the sample quilts feature my new fabric line from Riley Blake, Lullabelle, available at

For the Blog Tour this week! Loads of fun!


BONUS!
You can win a free copy of this volume of 100 Blocks!  Leave a comment here and we’ll pick one random winner at the end of the blog tour to receive a free copy!
