100 Blocks Blog Tour

Welcome to the Quiltmaker's 100 Blocks Blog Tour. Boy that's a mouthful.


I bought the 1st issue of 100 Blocks last year and was blown away at all the talent in one place, so I feel very fortunate to be a part of this second issue.


Inside you will find 100- 12" blocks. You can mix and match to your heart's content. The blocks are both pieced and appliqued, so your design possibilities are limitless. This will be a very valuable resource in your quilting library.


My block is called "Bird's Eye View". It is appliqued (of course). It is number 108 and you can find it on page 25.

I think this block would be nice alternated with chain blocks.

My fabrics are from Moda. I used the essential dots for my background and Kansas Troubles for the applique.

There are tons of giveaways in the blog tour, so be sure to check out the link at the top to Quiltmaker and visit all the designers. Leave a comment here and on the 12th there will be a drawing for a free copy of the magazine. There are giveaways on each blog as well as the Quiltmaker site.

Happy Quilting/Blog Hopping,

Dawn
