Quiltmakers 100 Blocks Vol 4 is here!!!

It hits the newsstands Nov 15, WOOHOO!! What a thrill to be included in this awesome magazine with 100 new fabulous block ideas.



When I heard that Quiltmaker was looking for new blocks for Vol 4, the first thing I thought of making was a penguin. It didn't take long to draw something up and go to my stash to find just the perfect fabric to make the little guy. I got it done and sent it in.



I think I actually screamed when I got the email saying that my block made it in the Quiltmakers 100 Block Vol 4.

My block "Just Chillin'" is on page 66.


All the designers in Vol 4 are on a blog tour now through Nov 11, Friday.


To visit every ones blog, click on the "100 Blocks Blog Tour" button at the top of my blog and it will take you there.


To win one of these great magazines, just leave me a comment and a winner will be drawn randomly at the end of Friday. Remember you must be a follower to win.


You don't want to miss this give a way, there's too many blocks to pass up ;)
Good Luck!!

    Not much to tell you about me - I work full time, take care of my aging Mom (so sometimes I work from home) and raised my cousins three children after she passed away. Quilting has helped me keep my sanity through all of the difficult times. Congratulations for getting your block on the cover!

  30. I blocked test this block for vol 4 and when I finished I held it up and asked, "how's it look?"
    Hubby replied: It looks like a bird.
    My 4 yr old Grand daughter said: It's a PENGUIN, grandpa don't know his birds.

    cracked me up- I have marked this pattern in my TO DO list, want to make the 'birds' in brights and wilds for karlee's bday.

    good job-congrats cw

  32. Oh what an adorable block!! I can think of so many ways to use it. (Pot holders for my daughter's penguin kitchen, pockets on an apron or little girls dress.)

This is the first time I've been to your blog - and I really like it.
