Quilting Gallery Blog Hop Party!
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 just love the block, and that first layout is my favorite! Congratulations on being in 100 Blocks.

Congratulations! I love your quilt block and am enjoying my first blog tour. I am about to start a Dear Jane quilt using Moda Friendship fabrics. I just don't want to cut into the fabrics yet, just need to look at them and drool some more. thank you!


My first quilt was an online see along for a mini quilt. Great way to start.


Great block. I'm working on a series of doll quilts for a friend's granddaughters.

Lee Ann L.

This is an awesome block! It looks easy to make too. Thank you for showcasing the block in various designs!


I love your block & all the versatile layouts - gonna be one I make for sure when I get (win, I hope!) Vol 5. I'm on a tablerunner kick right now so I'd use your block for that for sure!

Carrie P.

it is really fascinating what different looks you can get from that block.
I am currently working an applique quilt.


Love seeing all the different layouts for your block! I like the first one best--love all the different paths created through it. Thanks for the chance to win!


Great block - especially in the bright colours!
At the moment I'm making a charity quilt for 'Siblings Together'

BINGO - Some lucky quilter will definitely win such an amazing and creative magazine. The layout with the bingo being black is very striking quilt indeed. Since I started quilting I have seen a lot of changes. There is traditional, applique, paper piecing to name a few. You are always learning and that is a good thing. There are always free quilt patterns and tutorials to help you learn and create quilts. Thank you for participaing and letting your bingo card pick a winner.

I like the first block. The whites create so much movement.

Sharon Spingler

Love the first quilt!


I wasn't too excited about your block until I saw the first quilt mock up. Now I love it! Thanks for sharing the different layouts; gives me a whole new appreciation for the Bingo block.

Lori S

Thanks for sharing all the layouts. It really is cool to see how much it changes. Thanks for the chance to win!


I love your block. It's amazing how it could be used to make so many different quilts. Really gets the creative juices flowing.

Debbie St. Germain

I really love your block, exactly what I have been looking for. I love the irish chain look and the simple blocks, but could't wrap my head around how it is done, this would be perfect.

Great block. I love the first layout the best but they are all great and I love a block that makes secondary patterns. Congratulations on being in the magazine. Very exciting.
My first quilts were made with gigantic blocks, I never thought I would be working with little pieces of fabric.

Karen E

I love your block. This would be great to use up all those scrappy strips I don't know what to do with.

Kathleen Till

I love the first one especially those bright colors.


great block with interesting layouts. just love creative people. already liked you on facebook and am looking forward to more interaction there.


Fantastic block design and congratulations! Thanks for showing all those design options!! I'm working on a jean/denim quilt. I've been saving my two son's jeans for awhile and have enough to make quilts for each of them! This is the first time making a jean/ denim quilt and I love how it's turning out! Thanks for the chance to win!


I like the first layout of your block the best, but I like that the block is so versatile! Thanks for the giveaway!


I love your block. It's so versatile!!

Carol Sc

I really enjoy the many different ways you've set your simple block --- though, I must admit, a couple of them made me cross-eyed! I think this would be a great block to teach beginners and show them how much can be accomplished with relatively simple sewing.

Billie K

Hmmmmm.....a comment about anything I like....I LIKE chocolate...grin.

Jennifer Schifano Thomas

Hello! Great to meet you - I love all the different settings for your block. It is so versatile. Don't enter me in the giveaway, I'm on the tour, too. I'm just visiting! But if you want to know, I'm with the above comment - I like chocolate, too. :) Have a super day!

Stephanie Matz

Well, chocolate, sunny days, interesting quilts, and your block! It looks great for my growing stash of scraps! Thanks for sharing.


I like the first and fourth versions. This is a versatile block. I'm playing BINGO in the May for ME series so like the name too!

Nancy M.

I like to work with blocks like yours that are so versatile. They allow me to get into a routine when cutting, sewing and piecing, yet create quilts that all look different. Thank you for your post.


I am amazed how your simple block forms such wonderful patterns in a large quilt. Great job, Jessie! Congratulations and thank you for a hosting a great giveaway! :)
