Glorious Autumn Block Party & A Giveaway

Quiltmaker's 100 Blocks Vol. 5 Blog Tour


It's my turn on the Quiltmaker's 100 Blocks Blog Tour and I am excited to share my block with you! If this is your first time here, welcome! 


These issue are always packed with creative ideas and wonderful blocks. There are also some quilts on Quiltmaker's facebook page made from some of the 100 blocks. A quilt called Bingo Crazy by Reesa Zuber features our Bingo Block. Stop by and check out the awesome quilts! Also, make sure you stop by the other blogs on the blog tour for lots of great giveaways and amazing creativity. 

My block is called Bingo and features Robert Kaufman's, Treasures and Tidbits by Piece O' Cake Designs. Don't you love the bright colors of this collection!

This is a block that can be bright and cheery or understated and desaturated. It can also go some different directions with the layout and borders. I think it's a great catch-all block for whatever you have in your stash! 















As I mentioned earlier in this post, there are great giveaways on this blog tour. I am giving away a copy of the Quiltmaker's 100 Blocks. To throw your name in the hat just leave me a comment before noon (CST) Monday May, 7th about anything you'd like. In the past in the comments we've talked about Miracle Whip vs. Mayo, (which is where I learned about Dukes Mayo), our favorite seasons, long walks on the beach and more. I'd love to hear about anything...tell us about what your working on now, how you've seen quilting change since you've made your first quilt, or what your first quilt was- did you use a pattern or just jump right in and improvise, which layout using the Bingo block do you like best? You don't have to answer all those questions but if you'd like to answer any of them I love to hear from you! You can also hop over and like our facebook page for an extra entry. 

If this is your first time here, thanks for dropping in! Hope you all have a great time with this blog tour!

Cheers & Happy Quilting!

I like the first layout the best of the bingo block. Thanks for giving away this book.


I, too, like the first layout best. It's a great block!

Carol in E TN

Very interesting layouts. Thanks for the giveaway.


Thanks for sharing this block. I am a real scrappy quilter, so this appeals to me! A very strong possibility for me to create.
Wishing you continued success

It's so interesting how many different looks you can get from this one block! My favorite layout is the first one, but the fourth one really intrigues me too. Congrats on being in this great magazine!


Such a versatile block. I love all the settings, don't think I could easily choose just one.


It is a great block! Love especially the fourth layout, but all are special!


That is a great block, and I sure do love the fabric you chose for the sample!


I've just started to use patterns, they never seemed to make any sense to me, but I also think they are a great way to learn different techniques. So, do you like the Duke's, I've been thinking about trying it. Thanks.


I like the one with the black criss crossing best! When I travel in a camper to visit grandkids (& sons/DILs) I take my featherweight with me so I can keep up with my quilting. I usually end up doing some sewing for my family. This trip, I started making some super hero capes for my grandson's 4th birthday which will be on May 22. On the next stop (another son) I will be shortening his work pants - scrubs - as he will be graduating from nursing school on Sunday and will be starting a job at a hospital after that! Sewing comes in so handy and I love it!


I like the look of your block. I just finished a queen sized quilt, and put the binding and label on last night. It feels so good to have this done. Now on to start the next project, and hopefully finish up one or two that have been started.

Love the block - especially the bright colors you chose for your block. I am currently making a 110x110" quilt for my son's new bed. It is in chocolates, rusts, yellows, black, and creams with a bit of gold thrown in. This block would make a great accent pillow for his bed! Thanks for sharing.

Sandra Visser

Your block is very versatile. I think I like the second to last layout the most though.

Michelle Harrison

What a great block idea! If one pays attention to value, one can use up a lot of scraps beautifully! Our family uses Dukes mayonnaise. We used to walk on the beach but now we walk in the mountains, especially fall which is my favorite season.


I'm brand new to quilting. I am working on a king sized quilt for my mother in law at the moment. Sampler quilt with a giant patchwork Texas in the middle.

Janet F

I like your block..lots of options! I'm working on a king One Block Wonder right now. Thanks for the chance to win!

I really like the dark coloured version of the Bingo block. Very nice. I am just starting to quilt, and am enjoying this tour. I am working on a combination pieced and appliqued lap quilt, and am really enjoying it. (I have a few other projects on the go at the same time - who can have just one, right?)


I really like the one that looks like a rail fence split by an Irish Chain.. Very neat block!!

Julie A.

What a great block!!! Thanks for the giveaway.


I love the irish chain, and believe I will be doing this out of Cherrywood - yumm


I really love your block - congrats! the first layout would be the one I like the most. my first block ever was a log cabin and I still love making them. thanks!

Linda Duncan

Fun block! I'm getting ready for a quilting retreat weekend and am suffering from quilting adhd! I can't stay focused and want to do every project I see, like this one!

Carol F.

Currently I am working on several quilts...
The one I hope to complete soon is an upcycled denim quilt embellished with paint and embroidery.

Carol Patterson

I like the first layout best. I enjoy making scrap quilts and just finished one top and working on another as my beginners and enders.


What a fun quilt design. I like the first pattern showing just the block best. The biggest change that I think I have seen in quilting since I started to quilt (late 80's) is the Internet. It has allowed quilters around the world to share their talents and knowledge.

Angela N.

I like the 2nd one best! I think your block is my most favorite so far. Right now im working on peicing and completing the top and bottom for some charity quilts that the Front Range Modern Quilt Guild did. They are for 2 very small kids who lost their mom to cancer over the holidays. We are working like crazy to have them to them for mothers day.

Becky Greene

Bingo is one of my faborite blocks so far! I love the way you showcased all the different possibilities locked inside this treasure! I can see the block done ombre-style, too, with different shades of the same color. Congratulations on being included in 100 Blocks!

Joyce Carter

I like the layout with the dark colors the best. I am currently working on a Sunbonnet Sue applique quilt plus a quilt for both of my grandsons.It seems like I have more projects than I have time to do them in and my list just keeps getting longer. Congratulations and thanks for the giveaway.

Mary W

Love the name of your block. Mom was a bingo player. Love the different layouts for it. Thank you for sharing.


YOur block is very unique. I like that.
