Quiltmaker’s 100 Blocks

It’s always exciting to be asked to be a part of a project. Especially when it comes from one of our sister publications–in this case, Quiltmaker. When 100 Blocks Vol. 1 was in the works, I submitted my design, not daring to think it might be accepted. When it was, I was thrilled. After all, I was in the company of some big name designers…Edyta Sitar, Pat Sloan, Beth Ferrier and and Jackie Robinson, to name a few. When the call when out for Vol. 2 I had too many commitments at the time and had to pass. I was determined that wouldn’t happen if/when there was a Vol. 3!

Here is what I came up with.

I like foundation piecing and picked a block that only uses one template. My plan was to make a block that looked like a blooming flower, and the only rule I could think of was that the block had to finish at 12″. I had originally planned to submit a round block, but the editors at Quiltmaker quickly informed me that it had to be 12″ square. Hmmm… some improvisation was in order.

I wanted the green “leaves” and pink and purple of the “flower” to really float on the background. I hope the bright gold fabric I chose for the background accomplishes that end.

100 Blocks Vol. 3 comes out May 10.

    I’d say your flower block is a success! It really has a 3-D effect. Can’t wait to see all the blocks in Vol 2 – thanks for the chance.

  6. I love the design. It does have lots of movement…but I think your choice of fabric is what makes it “spin”!
