Your block is a fairly simple, yet stunning one. I also like to use scraps in my quilts.

I love scrappy blocks! I use more scraps than yardage! I made my first quilt when I was 16.

Simple block, but nice effect - I really like the version set on point! I'm working my way through many projects right now :). There's always something that catches my eye before I'm even finished my current project!


Woohoo, scrap buster block! I'm always on the lookout for a block or pattern that will use up scraps. I've been quilting since 2002 and using up the scraps is a prime motivator. I will definitely be making a quilt with this one!

Another great scrappy quilt idea, a twist on an old favorite block! Inspiring! Thanks for sharing!

I love scrap blocks and scrap quilting. The more variety of fabric the better. One can never collect to much fabric and then find that scrap block that use them.


What a great block! I'm making a baby quilt at the moment but next up is a quilt for my niece's wedding and your block would be perfect!


Scrappy blocks are a great way to use up leftover bits of fabric from previous quilting projects. Gotta love it.

Debbie Rhodes

LOVE your block...

right now I am trying to quilt in sections on my domestic machine.. first attempt hope it works.

Sandra Timmons

Your Paris Square Block is just the way to go to use up your scraps. I really like this block and can't wait to hopefully win a copy of QM 100 Blocks, Volume 7 to start quilting. Right now I am working on a Bow Tie Quilt and really need a scrapbusting project to work on next. This would be the answer. Thank you for the chance to win.

Sandi Timmons

Michelle Harrison

Scrappy appeals to me more and more. What a great block for a scrappy quilt.


This is such a bright quilt. It is amazing how the color changes the look! Thanks for the chance!


Love the way the gray in Paris Square makes those colors pop!


I like scrappy block quilts. They are my favorite


Wow, that IS a scrapbuster! I love it set on point with the dark background. I can't wait to get my hands on this next issue of 100 Blocks, so thanks for the chance to win!

Debbie P

Love your scrappy block!! I will put it on my list! I am currently working on a scrap quilt and I hope to put a dent in the scraps that have been accumulating!


I love scrappy quilts! Thank you for a perfect block for a scrappy quilt.

Very nice block- My favorite fabric line - I am not sure how to pick one- I love working with batiks- and some of the kaffe Fassett classic lines as a chorus of other fabrics- They always brighten my day.
Thanks for a chance to win this fun new magazine.

My favorite color to use in a quilt is red! I put red in every quilt I make, I think! I also like to use touches of black because it just makes those colors POP!! I made my first "real" quilt out of old bluejeans when I was 22 and sent in a picture to Mother Earth News. They posted a picture of it in their magazine!! I was thrilled to death!! That has been many, many moons ago now!!


Love your block.
Thanks for the chance to win.

Margaret  Schindler

Thanks for the chance to win. I love your block. I am in love with scrappy quilts. I think scrappy quilts are so pretty. Most of the time I read about a scrappy quilt pattern all the scraps are coordinated. I like the feel of random scraps being used.

Beth T.

Right now I'm working on some blocks for Boston. My all-time favorite fabric is Kaffe Fassett's Roman Glass. I used it as the backing for one of my first quilts, and it never fails that when I'm folding that quilt I say, "I love this fabric!".


I really like your block, especially when set on point. I will have to pit that one on my to-do list. Thanks for the chance to win a copy of the magazine.


I liked your Facebook page.

Yesterday I put "twin" quilts for my brother's twin grandchildren - in the mail - and tucked in a mini tote for 3 year old big sis. I hope my nephew and his wife like the gender neutral fabric I picked for the children. Now, I'm going to pause and bind two quilts. One has been quilted for at least 3 years. I have been waffling it I am going to scallop the edge or not. It is a mate to one I made for my sister-in-law when she was ordained as a pastor. I scalloped hers. So, I'm going to bit the bullet and fancy mine up, too. We live over 1000 mi apart. The other is a Double Wedding Ring that an 89 year old (now 90) pieced for me. It was at the quilter's for over 3 months and back at my house longer than that. So, it's time.
I love the versatility of your block. I really like it on-point. I just cut out a quilt that has my first on-point setting.
Thank you for being very generous in your giveaway. I'm having fun looking at all the eye candy and visiting old friends and making new friends.

Tina in NJ

Thanks for this nice, simple block.

Pat Evans

My current projects are baby quilts. I've just retired and hope to spend more time quilting, but right now the garden is demanding most of my time.


This is just a great way to use of those scraps!!! Thank you for sharing your talent with us.
