Quiltmaker’s 100 Blocks, Volume 6

Posted on

Well it is that time again.  Quiltmaker has put out another issue in their 100 Blocks series – Volume 6.  These magazines are so fun!  Can you guess which is mine?

Well, here is a hint.  I’ve had a thing for aqua and blue Christmas designs lately.  Yes, mine is the white-on-aqua snowflake in the second row.  It is on page 42 and is called “Winter’s Jewel.”

I enjoyed making this.  The applique and piecing are really simple but, because of the color choices, they look bold.  I used some fabrics from Laurie Wisbrun’s Brrr collection and also some neutrals by Patrick Lose, both of which are manufactured by Robert Kaufman.

Winter’s Jewel can be arranged in many ways.

Quilt 1 – no border
Quilt 2 – on point with white border
Snowflake Runner or Wall Hanging

Quiltmaker is giving away a free copy of the magazine to a reader here! To enter leave a comment telling me which of these statements is a lie:

  1. I worked in a wood shop for 2 years.
  2. I once had to get stitches because I impaled myself with a plastic bagel knife.
  3. I am an avid gardener.

Winners will be chosen from posts with the right answer using the random number generator.  First prize will get the magazine and second will get a free copy of one of my new patterns, either Palace Doors, Fizz, Sunflower Row, or Harlequin.

Deadline to enter is midnight on Friday, November 9th.

Be sure to check out all the other blocks and enter to win more giveaways on Quiltmaker’s blog!

Happy sewing!
