290: 100 Blocks Blog Tour
Welcome to day 3 of the 100 Blocks blog tour!
yep, believe it or not they let me back in!!
I had to get in because I saw that in Volume II, my friend Monica got a Mug for being in that volume…I was in Volume I and didn’t get one, but I don’t think the Quiltmaker folks knew what a hot seller this would be…so I am happy to say…yes, I got my mug this time!!
I also got this HUGE button….
seriously, it is 6 ” across or so….I think I may string it on some selvage and sling it over my back at Market, because if it were in front it would really bug me….
What is even more amazing is….they let me in with this block! I knew that on it’s own, well, it’s rather a strange block….
(here the block is done in Country Lane by Bari J) (which I think is a hard to find line of fabric now already….testimony to it’s solid design, huh?)
But see the whole time I was thinking about it, I knew it had to be part of a community of blocks…..(like how I used that word “community“…yeah, I am trendy like that…or as my oldest son might call it “trendly” He is adding to the English language daily, I swear….and it’s not because he is just learning to speak…he’s 18 and an inch taller than me …)
I like how this one midsized blocks makes up these ginormous blocks. I also like the on point block that
“appears” within the design. To be honest, I don’t remember noticing that when I designed it, but I REALLY like it now that it is done up here!
And the best thing?? you can get your own free copy right here by commenting
…Let’s say something about your hopes for spring, or your favorite fabric this year so far, or what you want me to bring back from Quilt Market to give away…something along those lines…Comment until Saturday nite the 7th of May…I think that is the time I get my last quilt back from the quilter’s to bind for Market…whew…nothing like cutting it close…I leave Thursday at O’Dark thirty….
Here are some sneaks at some of what I have been working on ……just in case you thought I was sitting around watching reruns of Better Off Ted or something equally entertaining but unproductive…..
I know they just look like piles of fabric there…..but really I have done something with most of these already and some I need to do right away when I get back from Market.
So leave a comment here to win a copy of 100 Blocks and don’t forget to stop by the other blogs on the tour all week for your chance to win there as well! I will also have some for sale when I get back from Market too…and it will be available on the newsstands May 10th too.
Stay tuned for some more upcoming news…I hope to be able to announce before Market….I am excited about it…I hope you will be too!!
