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.

Paris square could sure use up a lot of my 2" squares I've accumulated over the years.

Andrea Harles

Love scraps. Great block that I intend to use. Thanks so much


I love how this block appears to float. It is a great way to use scaps.

Elaine Schwan

I began quilting in the 60's with 2 colored quilts and embroidered quilts. Now I love the scrappy look. Your block is one I must do.


Thanks for the chance to win


Nice pattern to use lots of scraps-thank you


Pretty block. I really love the quilt on point using the bright fabrics at the bottom.

I've only been quilting about 3 yrs now but the first two were spent reading and trying to learn by reading anything and everything I could online and in books I own, as well as on the blogs I could find. I have to say most of my help in learning was from all the awesome bloggers who so freely give tutorials and great info on their blogs.

I started quilting about 6 months ago, and am hooked. So far I've made wall hangings for family members.


Great scrappy block and layout ideas. Congrats.

The on point setting is my favorite. Thanks for the chance to win.

I love your scrappy block and have been searching for a stash busting pattern to do with a gray background and backing! I believe this is it..thank you so very much!


DeAnna Dodson

I love all kinds of fabrics, but my current favorite line is Moda's Indigo Crossing. It just seems so graphic and yet so classic. Love it!

Ruth Rocker

Congratulations on your block being published. It's definitely a good way to use up scraps (of which I have way too many).

Thanks for a chance to win.

What a fun quilt block! I too love blocks that can use up scraps. It goes to show that quilting does not have to be an extremely expensive hobby. There is real charm is using bits and pieces, found here and there. What great memories are contained in those blocks!

My favorite color to quilt with is yellow! It's so bright and cheerful.

I really like your chevron quilting!


My favorite colors to use in a quilt are purple and green. Thanks for the great giveaway!


I liked you on facebook. Great Block. I love the little squares and triangles the corners make.


Favorite color to use in quilts is orange. Must mean my favorite season (fall) is approaching, or I'm making something Clemson for my hubby!
