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 like your block in the first layout. I'm currently making a doll for my DGD from a pattern that I bought 30 years ago for my daughter! I don't remember why I didn't make it back then, it's quite easy.

I liked you on facebook

I really like your block, you can use it in so many ways. I like the darker little block version the best and going to the left or the right. But truethfully I like all the designs, some I never would have thought up, so thank you for making all the different ones to look at you did a great job. I haven't seen a blog that has done that yet and I like it. That's one reason I want to win so bad so I can go through and try making as many as I can until next year. I think that would be a fun one year goal.

I'm new to reading blogs and really enjoying all the different quilting related sites, I had no idea they existed!
I really like this block and how versatile it becomes. I like the 4th layout, the one with blue outline. It looks like ladders a bit to me. Thanks for the inspiration!


This is so versatile.

Very cool block! Thanks for showing all the different layout ideas! My favorite is the 2nd to last one with all the black squares making diamonds. My first quilt is a coin quilt that I pieced together in March, but I haven't had time to finish it... Thanks for a chance to win! :)


Just the word Bingo gets me happy! I haven't played since I moved here to Georgia, but I did a lot in other states. I saw a Veterans place that advertised it and now I'm going to have to look it up. Fun way to play the odds!


Liked Harding on Facebook. I'm curious to check out that Ikat video. On the mayo issue, I love Miracle Whip but don't always want that flavor. I also like Hellmans and just use a little instead of getting the light variety.


Your block looks great in all of the layouts. Congrats on having your block in the Quiltmaker's 100 Block magazine. It looks like a fun block to make. Enjoyed your Blog.


I love this block! This would make a great Quilt Of Valor done all scrappy in red, white and blues.

Donna Cutting

I am happy to find a block that I can use my stash to create, so I like your first layout. Thanks for sharing.


I like the first layout best. Working on a charity quilt at the moment, but would your blocks be fun to do soon!


Nice block and congrats on being included in the magazine!

I like the layouts that form diamonds and zigzags.

E. Engman

Such a cheerful block with these fabrics. I appreciate the different layout options you've shown, too.


So many ways to go with this block! I made one similar years ago, but only as a sample. Wonder how that whole quitl turned out. I was in my scrap stash this last week (there must be "scrap" rabbits in there), and it would be a good block for "scrap reduction", just need one fabric for the small squares, and scrap the rest. Oh, the places you could go......

Pat V.

I really like the setting where you end up with diamonds. The fabrics you chose for your block are soooo cute!


I Love them ALL! What a great block, very versatile.


Man. I really love all the variations in design your gorgeous block provides. Very cool.
Umm... forget the mayo, mustard is all you need.

Pat Bond

Your block is right up my alley. I'm partial to squares adnd rectangle blocks. Just finished an Asian inspired puzzle block quilt top for my sister and I think she'll love it.


Love your block. Perfect for the millions of bees I seem to be involved with at the moment!!


Your block is so cheery and versatile. I can see it done in batiks, 30s, solids, etc. And so many neat ways to set the blocks. Thanks for sharing.
The last couple of weeks I've been working to get caught up machine quilting for 'customers'. I'm anxious to work on some things of my own, and this blog hop is making me want to start something new!


Your block looks like a great stash buster. I'm buried in stash and looking for easy, pretty patterns. Yours is at the top of my list.

Gwen W

Great block - lots of fun variations!


I am loving touring these blogs... while doing my laundry I often wonder how just 2 people can dirty so much laundry... it takes me almost as long to do laundry now as when my girls still lived at home....

Robyn Brown

I have tried to push myself to be more precise. I don't try new things just for the sake of trying something new. I only do it if I will enjoy it or the outcome. I do however, push myself to perfect those skills I do enjoy.

Rhonda H.

One of my favorites I've seen on the "tour"; love it! Thanks for chance to win a copy.


I particularly like layouts 1 and 4. The fabric collection is a winner for certain. The white diagonal squares in the design really play a great roll. Today it continues to be a sad day in San Diego by the events of yesterdays loss of #55. So sad to loose such a great person. Thanks for an opportunity to win! Sandi


I thought your block was "nice" but it didn't "speak to me" and then I got to the possibilities and it was "Oh WOW!" Thanks for showing possibilities for unimaginative people like me.

Cindi C

Wow! So many options. I like choices and love to see what other people come up with using the same block! Congrats on being in the 100 Block issue.

Shelley dionne

Oh wow, I love how many options there are with this block!!! I want to make them all lol!
