Quiltmaker 100 Blocks Vol. 9 - Blog Tour

100 Blocks Volume 8 Blog Tour - All Square

Hello!

Welcome to our day for the Quiltmakers 100 Blocks Blog Tour! I love to be included in the 100 Blocks issues and enjoy all the fun of the blog tour.

100 Blocks Vol 8

 My block for Vol. 8 is called All Square

All Square is a really versatile block that can go LOTS of different directions. Below is a straight setting but the middle of each block uses a variety of colors. Great for your scraps! I love the secondary patterns created by the blocks in this layout.

 Or, turn the block on point.

A whole new look by keeping the blocks on point but changing the setting and corner fabric.

Or, add both vertical and horizontal sashing

Another example of two very different looks are the two pictures below. The first is of my block from Quiltmakers 100 Blocks Vol. 5 called Bingo and the second is of a quilt made from the Bingo block. The original block was made with bright, vibrant fabrics.

And, the quilt has an entirely different feel with soft, calming earthtones.

Like so many other blocks and patterns, the sky is the limit with these blocks. Depending on fabric choices and fabric placement the same block or pattern can look so amazingly different. Which is why we love to build up our stash, right?!?

Great block -- I love the fact that there are so many secondary designs! And your "Bingo" block looks like a fun way to use up lots of scraps I've collected from making charity quilts.

Great block - so versatile. Thanks.

Honestly, I think your block is one of my favorites so far. I particularly like the flexibility of this block. I usually don't want my quilt to look just like the one the pattern cover and yours has so many options for individuality. Great job! svonfumetti(at)yahoo(dot)com
