I'm included in Quiltmaker’s 100 Blocks, Volume 9!

I am thrilled that my block is included in Quiltmaker’s 100 Blocks, volume 9! Quiltmaker's 100 Blocks will be available at newsstands by May 6th. Welcome to my portion of the 100 Blocks blog tour.    

I used Cold Spring Dreams in the yellow and violet color combination to create my block named Watch Your Step, number 884:

Here it is in pink and blue.

One of the fun things about this block is that by rotating it in various directions you can achieve different quilt patterns. Here is an example of one way the blocks could be arranged to form a quilt.

Quiltmaker is running the blog tour on their Quilty Pleasures Blog starting today, April 28th through May 2nd. Throughout the week they will be featuring designers and having daily giveaways including two fat quarter bundles of Cold Spring Dreams.

Now for the exciting news: Quiltmaker has generously donated one copy of Quiltmaker’s 100 Blocks for me to give away. Just leave a comment here, on my blog and at the end of the week, I will randomly select a winner.

Good luck, and enjoy the rest of the tour.
