|The Gretchen Block as seen in Quiltmaker's 100 Blocks, Volume 9|
Even after all these years (22) of having my quilts published, it is still a treat to see them in print. I am especially happy to have one of my favorite magazines feature one of my blocks. This is the fourth time I've had this privilege and it still makes me smile!

Follow the 100 Blocks Blog Tour daily April 28 - May 2, 2014 at The Quiltmaker Blog Quilty Pleasures for inspiration, ideas and giveaways galore! They have prizes (did I say that?)
Quiltmaker’s 100 Blocks Volume 9 is the newest issue of this fabulous magazine. Honestly, I think a magazine is the most bang for the quilting buck around. All the blocks in this magazine finish to 12" so the possibilities are endless.
Many thanks to June Dudley, Kelly Eisinger, Carolyn Beam, Diane Harris and the rest of the Quiltmaker staff for making each issue somehow better than the last. Kudos to you all!

I've made a few quilts using this pattern:

|Don't you just love the positive-negative movement of this block?|
Follow the 100 Blocks Blog Tour daily April 28 - May 2, 2014 at The Quiltmaker Blog Quilty Pleasures for inspiration, ideas and giveaways galore (that's another way to say THEY HAVE PRIZES). I donated copies of my 2 books and Block a Day calendar CD. But I'm also going to give away a few myself right here. What are they?
Winner #3: a copy of my Block a Day Calendar CD. You can see ALL the blocks here.

1. Leave me a comment telling me your favorite types of quilt blocks to make (applique, rotary cut, paper piecing).
2. Make sure I have your email. No email, no prize (because I can't find you).
3. You don't have to be a follower, but I do give away a lot of FREE patterns, tutorials and prizes every week, so go ahead and sign up using the "Follow by Email" link over on the right or just sign up using the "Follow Me on Bloglovin" link. (Forget the Google follower signup - they no longer work) Then you won't miss a thing.
I will announce the winners after the Blog Hop is finished, on May 2. And I use the Random Number Generator, weed out duplicate postings and no-reply bloggers without emails (yes, I do). Thanks for stopping by and now go visit the Quiltmaker blog site (Quiltmaker Blog Quilty Pleasures) for more inspiration!
