Hey, everyone! Welcome to my blog! I’m pleased to be part of the Quiltmaker’s 100 Blocks Vol. 11 Blog Tour. I have had a block in all but 2 volumes of this great series. I always love to look through the magazine and get ideas of great blocks from other designers.
If you’ve never visited my site before, I hope you’ll look around at all the fun things here. Subscribe with the link at the right for lots of hints, tips, product reviews, and, most of all, quilts! I love them, and I’m sure you do, too.
So, here is my block for Volume 11. It’s called Good Day Sunshine, and is block #1038 on page 30. I had fun appliqué-ing and constructing this block. I love appliqué and piecing, and my blocks usually end up in the mixed technique category. Here’s a fun video of all the blocks in my category.
Good Day Sunshine block by Cheryl Brown from Quiltmaker’s 100 Blocks Volume 11.
My inspiration for this block comes from my quilt, Night and Day, from my book Quilt Batik! This block doesn’t do the “night” part, but I thought it looked fun and springy for the May release of the magazine. I also wanted the two halves to have a different blue and yellow combination. I was pleased to see my block on the cover! I hope you like it.
