Win a Copy of Quiltmaker’s 100 Blocks Volume 7

We are so impressed by the creativity demonstrated by 100 quilters in Quiltmaker’s 100 Blocks Volume 7. We think you will be too. And if you leave a comment on this post, you’ll be entered into a drawing for a free copy of Quiltmaker’s 100 Blocks Volume 7. Please check out Quilty Pleasures blog, by the wonderful folks at Quiltmaker Magazine, to see who else is on today’s blog hop list.

Whether you love to do appliqué, foundation-pieced blocks, mixed-technique blocks, or pieced blocks, Volume 7 will certainly have some inspiration for you! These are the blocks and quilts that inspired us.

Do you have a pile of scraps just crying out to be used in a quilt? Why not make the Paris Square block, #674, designed by Jessie Kurtz of Harding Hill Designs.

Simply choose a great fabric to frame your scraps and blocks and quickly turn a dozen blocks into your next masterpiece.

Depending on your fabric choices, this quilt design would be great as a baby quilt, a wall hanging, or a throw. And just think of all of the great quilting you can show off in the negative space around the blocks.

The sample quilt  features a chevron quilting design which compliments the geometric nature of the quilt. We think it would also be great quilted with something traditional, such as feathers, or another “curvy” motif to contrast with the geometric nature of the blocks.




Here’s a great twist on the traditional spool block. Crossed Spools is by blogger and fabric designer Pam Vieira-McGinnis of pamkittymorning. And, of course, it uses fabric she designs for Lakehouse Dry Goods.




We especially liked a couple of the appliquéd blocks because of the pieced backgrounds.

The first is the  block called Summer’s in Bloom by Cheryl Brown of Choosing a colorful batik fabric for the flower blossom piece adds interest to the flower without having to use multiple fabrics.


And who doesn’t love the beautiful appliqué designs by Piece O’Cake Designs. This block is by Becky Goldsmith. The offset appliqué design adds a modern twist to this charming block.





Handi Quilter recently featured Becky Goldsmith and Linda Jenkins of Piece O’Cake Designs in one of our 2013 ads.

And Becky and Linda are prominently featured on the HQ truck that goes to quilt shows around the U.S.
