Hey! Welcome to my blog, and day 4 of Quiltmaker’s 100 Blocks Volume 10 Blog Tour! If you’ve never been here before, feel free to take a look around. We have lots of fun things going on here. Check out my Hey Mama! sew along block-of-the-month, which will be starting next week. I also have my Sweet Seasons appliqué sew along, which is a block of the quarter. I’ve posted 2 blocks there already, but it’s not too late to join. The patterns are always available to download. Subscribe for tons of quilting tips, fabric previews and other fun quilting stuff to be delivered right to your email.
I’ve been lucky enough to participate in all but 2 volumes of the Quiltmaker’s 100 Blocks series, and love this blog tour, and how fun everyone’s blocks are! I have 2 books I’ve published through Martingale & Co., Fresh and Fabulous Quilts, and Quilt Batik! (See the links at the right.)
Now, on to the tour! The magazine is on newsstands and shops this week, and here is the cover:
My block is #933, Christmas in My Soul. The ornament design was simplified from a design my husband, Neil, did for a Christmas card. I love to combine appliqué with piecing, so I added the little side pieces and the candy cane border. I hope you like it!
Go to Quilty Pleasures, Quiltmaker’s blog, for a complete list of shops and prizes. Oh, and speaking of prizes, I think I promised you some, too! I’ll be giving away 2 copies of Quiltmaker’s 100 Blocks Volume 10, and a copy of my book, Quilt Batik! Just leave a comment with your favorite holiday food! Winners will be drawn randomly, and notified by email.
Thanks for hopping!
