100 Quilt Blocks Blog Tour

Have you seen the new 100 Quilt Blocks #4 magazine by Quiltmaker?  I enjoy seeing all the new, innovative, charming blocks the designers have created. This is one of those magazines you keep and collect for future reference. Do you have yours? We have them on our website now.

My block is #340, Kansas Home. A traditional star block is simplified with raw edge applique squares (4 brown corners and red center square) for even eaiser piecing. I love the texture and dimension of adding raw edge to any quilt block.


Also included in this edition are blocks by fellow Moda designers Kathy Schmitz and Camille Roskelley. Check it out! Comment here to win a free 100 Quilt Blocks Vol.#4. The random number generator will choose 3 lucky quilters on Monday.
