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 scrappy look of your block. I've made mostly wall hangings, but have run out of wall space. So now I've 'graduated' to bed quilts and am very drawn to scrap quilts, probably so I can use my stash, which is mostly small amounts of each fabric.

One block, hundreds of designs. You peeps in the book are so fascinating. Thanks for a chance to win the great book.

I flew over to FB and liked you so much. I left a comment and saw something that slipped by me so I am in a win win situation. Thanks

What a fun block. I love the bright colors. Congratulations on having your blick included in this year's Quiltmaker's 100. I have lots of projects going on. I'm doing the civil war BOM quilt, General's Wives. I belong to two embroidery groups. One is redwork and I'm making a quilt with snowmen blocks. The other group is a tea towel group, although we can work on whatever we want. I also do an applique BOM, a hand piecing group and a $6 BOM, where if you finish your block for the month, the next's month's block is free. I have a great girlfriend who I met in a class three years ago and now we take all our classes together. It's great, we do our "homework" together as well as carpool to classes.

Thank you for a great giveaway and a chance to win.



I'm from the UK, where we don't have Miracle Whip of Duke's Mayo. But I have just discovered a shop that sells Marshmallow Fluff, which I love on hot toast!


I love your block, and the name Bingo fits it so well! The layout options are endless, aren't they? Thanks for the chance at this giveaway!


I'm currently working on my first quilt - just simple, large blocks.

Your block is so versatile. I love how you show the different quilt possibilities. Thanks for the giveaway.

I love this pattern. It would be great for all the solids I have.,,oh, my first quilt was Winning Hand, done with the Elenor Burns Quilt in a Day book. I gave it to my oldest son and they used it every time they went to Lamaze classes. Makes me smile to remember.


I like the first layout and LOVE your block.

What's the deal about Duke's Mayo?


Thank you for taking the time to show us several layouts. (Gotta love modern technology!) I can see using this block a lot!! Congrats on the success of your block! Duke's all the way. Hard to find in Maryland. Used it first when living in Charleston SC, and love it. Sad but true, I grew up with Miracle Whip ....mother would dallop it on peaches then topped with cheddar cheese. It's a "Miracle-Are-You-Out-Of-Your-Mind" desert. I didn't get near anything resembling mayo, until Duke. Duke brought me back to the Mother Ship. Still, don't put it on peaches and grated cheddar cheese.
