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.

 Here is the block set on-point with sashing. I've been gathering my scraps and have this one on my to-do list.

I love your block, scrappy is always so wonderful with all of the colors and textures. Thanks.


Really nice "scrap" block! There are so many beautiful fabrics available now, it seems a shame not to use as many of them as I can!


I liked you on facebook!

I love scrap blocks and scrap quilting. The more variety of fabric the better. One can never collect to much fabric and then find that scrap block that use them.


What a great block! I'm making a baby quilt at the moment but next up is a quilt for my niece's wedding and your block would be perfect!


Scrappy blocks are a great way to use up leftover bits of fabric from previous quilting projects. Gotta love it.

LOVE your block...

right now I am trying to quilt in sections on my domestic machine.. first attempt hope it works.

Your Paris Square Block is just the way to go to use up your scraps. I really like this block and can't wait to hopefully win a copy of QM 100 Blocks, Volume 7 to start quilting. Right now I am working on a Bow Tie Quilt and really need a scrapbusting project to work on next. This would be the answer. Thank you for the chance to win.

This is such a bright quilt. It is amazing how the color changes the look! Thanks for the chance!


Love the way the gray in Paris Square makes those colors pop!


I like scrappy block quilts. They are my favorite

Very nice block- My favorite fabric line - I am not sure how to pick one- I love working with batiks- and some of the kaffe Fassett classic lines as a chorus of other fabrics- They always brighten my day.
Thanks for a chance to win this fun new magazine.

Love the on point setting and the inspiration!

Scrappy blocks don't usually appeal to me, but I really like yours that is set on point.

My favorite color to use in a quilt is red! I put red in every quilt I make, I think! I also like to use touches of black because it just makes those colors POP!! I made my first "real" quilt out of old bluejeans when I was 22 and sent in a picture to Mother Earth News. They posted a picture of it in their magazine!! I was thrilled to death!! That has been many, many moons ago now!!


Love your block.
Thanks for the chance to win.
