2013 Color of the Year + a Giveaway
Quiltmaker's 100 Blocks Vol. 7 Winners

Quiltmaker's 100 Blocks Blog Tour



Today is my day on the Quiltmakers 100 Blocks Blog Tour and I'm excited to again be included in another great 100 blocks issue!



My block is a scrappy, lively block called Paris Square. It's a great block for scraps. For this block the scrappier the better!

This issue has a great designer gallery full of quilts and table runners using some of the blocks in volume 7. Below is my Paris Square quilt. I used different lines from Art Gallery Fabrics for my block and the quilt. I quilted it with a large chevron pattern and love how bright and springy the quilt looks.

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!
