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.

Or, turn the blocks on point

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.

Lots of possibilities with just one block!

Or, as a table topper or small play mat

Or, a few blocks can make a great table runner.

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.

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.

 

QMMS-130037-cover_200_56636
100 Blocks Vol 8

 My block for Vol. 8 is called All Square

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?!?

More New Releases & A New Giveaway

I want to show you some more of our new 2-1/2" strip patterns that we just released & are shipping as we speak.

 

Block hop final cover

Block Hop is a great, vibrant 2-1/2" strip pattern that works really well with your small to medium scale fabrics. This pattern includes Crib, lap, and twin size options.

 

Square step

Square Step is a quick and easy 2-1/2" strip pattern. This quilt can take on so many different looks. One of the many ideas is to use black as your contrasting solid fabric...that would be a great option for this pattern. Included are 5 size options, crib to king. 

 

The twist cover final

The Twist is such a festive pattern! This pattern works great with small scale prints and lots of color variety. This quilt comes together with strip piecing, which brings everything together in a snap! The pattern includes crib, lap, and twin size options.

 

Shuffle block cover final

Shuffle Block is the last pattern we are featuring. This is another pattern that works great with small scale prints and lots of different color variety. The funky pattern includes 3 size options- crib, lap, and full.
