My last experience with Quiltmaker’s 100 Blocks was so fun, I decided to try again. My block was accepted in volume 9, and once again, I’m on the cover!The magazine will be on the news stands on Tuesday, May 6, and the Blog Tour is happening all this week. Some of you are familiar with me at Prairie Sky Quilting, but for many others, this is your first visit to my blog. Welcome!
My block, Diamond Panes is #824 on page 37:
Once again, I chose to submit a foundation pieced block. If you’re familiar with my work, you know that my patterns so far have not included foundation piecing. But if you’ve made a Fun&Done! Quilting pattern, that uses a foundation piecing technique, in a simple stitch & flip quilt-as-you-go version. Maybe you didn’t realize that you already had some foundation piecing skills! It’s not as hard as you might think – in many ways, it’s easier for intricate blocks, because matching seamlines and points are part of the process. You get good results without the extra effort or skill.
Quiltmaker is giving away a free copy of Quiltmaker’s 100 Block magazine. To be entered in the drawing, please leave a comment by Friday, May 2, answering this question: Would you prefer to make this block into a large quilt, or in the table runner size?
Don’t forget to visit the other designers on the Quiltmaker’s 100 Block Blog Tour this week.
