Quiltmaker’s 100 Blocks Blog Tour

Hello and welcome to my stop on the 100 Blocks Blog Tour! It’s the 10th volume, which means they’ve hit 1000 blocks in this fantastic series. I’m so excited to be a part of it!

Here’s my block, #927 Spinning Stripes:

My block was also used in the Stellar Sampler quilt on page 8. You can see it right there next to Carolyn on the Editor page!

I just love it in those beautiful batiks!

Spinning Stripes is made up of the same foundation-pieced unit repeated and rotated around. If you rotate the unit differently, you can get some other fun results!

Creative Spark – Quiltmaker Nov/Dec ’14

Look at that cutie in the new issue of Quiltmaker!

That’s my son and he’s making an appearance in the Creative Spark article in the November/December 2014 issue! We’re talking about using EQ7 to design pieced Christmas stockings.

Click over to Quiltmaker’s site to read the accompanying EQ7 lesson. You can apply the same idea to lots of different irregular shaped patchwork projects- like purse panels and clothing patterns.
