Quiltmakers Vol 9 100 Blocks!!!

Welcome blog hoppers!!
WOW!!  How time flies!  VOL 9  100 Blocks has hit the stands and boy I'm excited! 
 There are some wonderful, great and awesome blocks to play with from this issue.   My project list just got bigger again :).  Can't wait to get started. 
I was lucky enough to have one of my blocks chosen to be in this issue.  Hooray!
Block #898 - Two Tulips
I love flowers and was sketching one day and come up with this block.  And what perfect timing since my tulips are in full bloom right now!!  (but they are the only things in bloom, no green thumb here)
There are so many color ways for this block.  
Here's a quilt I designed in EQ7.
The size is 70" square.  How about doing just four blocks to finish a 30" square.
How about a long runner?!?

WIth EQ7 it's soooo easy to create all sorts of layouts and designs.
I get lost in it sometimes goofing around.
Let your mind go crazy with all that you can do with these 100 blocks. 
 Mix and match, add and duplicate, switch and turn.  The possibilities are endless.  Have fun!!
Now, as you all know, there is always a give away.
