Half Square Triangles - A How-To
Be Gentle With Yourself

Quiltmaker's 100 Blocks Volume 12


I'm happy to again be included in Quiltmaker's 100 Blocks issue! I hope you enjoy the blog tour and all the creativity, fun, and giveaways that go along with it! You can check-in each day here


Quiltmaker's 100 Blocks Vol. 12


My block, which is below, is made with the newest collection from BasicGrey for Moda called Mon Ami, along with some grunge. It's a fun, charming collection. 




When I was at Quilt Market in May I met Allison Black from BasicGrey. She stopped by my booth after noticing my love of BasicGrey. I had my newest book, One Block Remix at market and three of the quilts in the book and in my booth were made with different BasicGrey collections! I'm always drawn to the beautiful artwork and fresh colors of their fabric.

Our book, One Block Remix, has 10 different quilt patterns all using one block. It was fun to play with one block to see what new shapes and designs are created by moving and shifting the block, along with using different fabrics. I've also done that with previous blocks in Quitmaker's 100 Blocks for the blog tour which you can read about here, here, and here. I can spend hours moving things, or changing colors. Many times the results can be surprising! I've done the same for my latest block. The first layout is a straight forward layout. The block creates a secondary pattern that carries though the quilt.

Add some vertical sashing and it's a whole new pattern.

Now, flip some of the blocks for a new pattern.

I turned the blocks on point and changed the colors to a monochromatic color scheme.

Below the blocks are again on-point but I swapped out the setting triangles and corners with white.

I am really interested in beginning this project...all I need is the issue copy! Last month, I finished making all 100 blocks from Tula Pink's 100 Modern Quilt Blocks. I enjoyed it so much and I know I'll enjoy this one too. Mom. Mayonnaise and quilting. Why, of course, they all go together!


I went to like you on Facebook and had already like you.


When left to comment about anything, it's difficult for us to find something unique and be interesting. Of course, we can all just go on and on about the block. I thought the block looked like "Y" and then was totally amazed as I saw it evolve with other blocks. I particularly loved the monochromatic quilts. Thanks for sharing a plethora of ideas with us.

I was trying to find where you are located and couldn't so I'll take a chance that you are not in NM. My daughter sent me a picture of the parking lot of the high school where she teaches in Albuquerque. It was covered in snow today. Here in Oklhoma we were in the high 50's today. Usually, it would be the other way around.

Also, may God richly bless and protect our country as there is terror in the world today.

Blessings to you, too.

Liz Engman

So simple to look at, so many variations possible--very cool.

Cathryn H
