Quiltmaker 100 Blocks Vol. 9 - Blog Tour


Welcome to day 2 of Quiltmakers 100 Blocks blog tour! Hope you are enjoying the tour so far.


100 Blocks Vol 9

My block in Vol. 9 is called Positive Outlook. It is a block using only solids but, would also look great with all types of fabric!

I spend hours playing with layouts and color placements in my designs. Once I lay out the quilt in illustrator I love playing with the different elements....layout, color placement, all those fun things. Below are some different looks for this block with a straight setting and different colors.

Using Positive Outlook with red and green fabrics would look great for a Christmas quilt!
