100 Blocks

I’ve been included in Quiltmakers 100 Blooks, volume 11! Welcome to my portion of the 100 Blocks blog tour. 

My block, named Just Go With the Flow is number 1056.  Just Go With the Flow is made from Licien’s Color Basic Dots as well as RJR Fabric’s Supreme Solids.
The design is a raw edge appliqué, with a generous sized blanket stitch in pearl cotton number 8, my favorite hand quilting thread.


Quiltmaker is currently hosting this tour on their Quilty Pleasures Blog. Today is the last day of the tour but there is still time to check out the other designers and a chance to win today’s giveaways.

Now for the exciting news, Quiltmaker has generously donated one copy of Quiltmaker’s 100 Blocks for me to give away and I have two additional copies to add to that. Just leave a comment here, on my blog and I will randomly select three winners.

Good luck, and enjoy the rest of the tour.

  17. Cute block! Your link is not correct on the Quiltmaker blog site (it actually links to Quiltville along with the Quiltville link) so you aren't getting too many visitors...not sure if you can get them to fix that! Guess it makes my odds better but bummer for you!

  20. I can't decide if those fish are cute or scary! I like them though, because the cute/scary thing amuses me! Love this magazine, thanks for the chance to win!

  21. Those are some ferocious, yet cute, fish. One or two should have sharp teeth! Or, even, hooks hanging down in temptation.
