Quiltmaker 100 Blocks Blog Tour



I'm so excited to share the news that one of my original block designs is featured in the newest issue of Quiltmaker's 100 Blocks from today's top designers magazine! I've been a loyal customer of this magazine since its first issue because of the many unique and interesting block designs that it offers. Not only would each block make for a spectacular quilt on its own, but the magazine is perfect for someone like me who participates in a lot of online quilting bees and block swaps, because it really broadens your options for fun & interesting quilt block designs.


It completely made my day when I saw the cover of the magazine because, not only is my block included inside, but it even appears on the cover!! If you look at the image above, it's the first block in the second row of 4 blocks (right under the colorful "x"-looking block.)

Here's a better photo of my block:


It's a pretty simple block to construct but creates a really cool graphic effect, especially when you start to play with light and dark tones to create contrast and shadow-like effects. I also love that it can be oriented either vertically or horizontally, and pieced in rows or columns. It's also a great block to show off some favorite prints. (And for those of you who think it looks a little familiar ... it was the process of designing this block that inspired my Ziggity Mug Rug -- a nod to how versatile this design can be.)

For my block, I used an interesting Asian-inspired line called Olympus by Clothworks. You can't really tell from the picture, but many of these prints also have a lot of texture to them, with raised stitches and interesting weaves. I'm currently making a full quilt inspired by my block -- stay tuned for that soon.

To celebrate my first (but hopefully not last) entry into Quiltmaker's 100 Blocks magazine, I'm sending a copy of issue 4 to one Quilt Dad reader. Simply leave a comment on this post and let me know if you've purchased an earlier issue of 100 Blocks and where / how you've used the block patterns. I'm looking forward to seeing some inspirational photos!

  16. Congratulations on having your entry accepted AND making it on the cover! That's pretty exciting. Your block looks like even beginners can try with exceptional results. Thanks!

    ReplyDelete
  17. Thanks for the chance to win! I won a copy of Volume 3 and also have Volume 2. I've mixed and matched some of the blocks for a wall-hanging (still in progress) and then I've used another block from one to serve as an alternating block for a very large-scale print I bought (also still in progress). It takes me a while to go through the magazines and decide what I want to do with them ... I wish there were a site I could see them all repeated in a quilt! Your block would look really need alternated in directions for a very scrappy look!

    ReplyDelete
  18. how fun - congrats on your block being part of this book! I haven't bought one of these before because I am still somewhat new to quilting, but it is something I have put on my list to purchase.

    ReplyDelete
  19. I like that so much! I mostly make quilts for charity and I'm always looking for new blocks with high dark-light contrast and that one is a GREAT one to add to my must-have list! Well done.

    ReplyDelete
  20. Congratulations! Love the 'scrappy' look! And what a great use for jelly rolls this would be!!

    ReplyDelete
  21. I would love a chance to win this magazine. It's great to be able to see lots of quiltmakers and their blocks all in one place. So much inspiration.

    ReplyDelete
  22. I'm a collector of the magazine! I'm always amazed at the talent! I've only made a few blocks and each turned into pillows or framed.

    ReplyDelete
  23. Oh Wow! Congrats on getting into the magazine!!!! Because you made it in for the first time, you have given me hope that I could do something like this someday. :-)

    I have Vol 2 & 3. I am planning to get Vol 4 if I don't win one. :-) I am also going to purchase Vol 1 from the EQ Boutique soon.

    ReplyDelete
  29. I have all the previous issues and they are marked with lots of sticky notes for blocks I want to make! I've only actually made a handful of them -- mostly just to try them or to put in table runners. So many plans, so little time!

    ReplyDelete
  40. Great job Quilt Dad! Not too many men would admit to being into quilting! I have all 3 issues of "100 Blocks" & expect to add volume 4 one way or another. I recently participated in a row robin in my quilt guild & I only used blocks from those 3 issues for my contributions. And I got so many people asking where I had found such unique blocks!

    ReplyDelete
  41. Congrats for being in the cover!!!, great job!!!!, I have the past editions, it's really handy... I made some blocks in pillows and table runners :)

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  47. I have all the previous issues and just love each and every block in every issue. I really like making a single block and building a sampler quilt. It's been so much fun wondering around the blog-isphere looking at all the wonderful blocks! Thanks for the chance to win!

    ReplyDelete
  48. No photos yet but I've referred to last year's issue for star blocks for the Quilts of Valor blocks I'm been making. It really is a nice resource when I need ideas.

    ReplyDelete
  53. Congrats to you! I've purchased the last 2 and so far have used them just for inspiration. However, I was lucky enough to win 4 blocks from the last issue, so will be using those patterns to incorporate those blocks into a quilt.

    Thanks for the opportunity!

  57. I love the block and the versatility of it. The fabrics chosen instantly reminded me of a collection of men's ties. Hmmm. Have to think about that and how to use it. I have all three prior editions of 100 Blocks and use them all the time for inspiration and finding just the right block or concept to take me to my next quilt. Congratulations!

    ReplyDelete
  58. No I've never purchased a copy of the magazine. Only heard of this last year and by the time I found out, I could not find a copy locally. I live in a small town and so we don't get alot of copies of any magazine. I have been a loyal subscriber to Quilmaker's regular magazine and have made many of their quilts. Would love to win a copy. Thanks

    ReplyDelete
  59. I tested your block for vol 4, I use what ever scrappy I have on the table at the time. I was happy to see that this has so many poss for using up favorite fabric or going scrappy. Love your choice of materials- good job! cw

    ReplyDelete
  60. I love your block and this magazine is new to me, but now I think I'm going to have to keep an eye out, so much inspiration!

    ReplyDelete
  61. I purchased the last issue. Can I still enter the giveaway even though I have not stitched any of the great designs in it? ;)

    I'm happy that your block was published in Quiltmaker's 100, hurray for you! I bought the magazine that came out last spring(Vol. 3) I used an idea from it for a color wheel project that my small group did this fall.

  81. I must have been under a rock. I didn't know about this magazine but you can bet I'm looking for it now. Congrats on your place in the group.

    ReplyDelete
  82. I have purchased all 3 issues of the magazine and love them all. Have only made a couple of the blocks - and only for use as mug rugs, so only made one of each block. I really like your new block - it's simple, graphic and very modern looking, yet has so many possibilities.

    ReplyDelete
  83. I have not purchased a previous edition of the magazine. I see so much inspiration in the blocks that I have seen. If I don't win, this is an issue that I will purchase. Thanks for the chance to win.

  91. I have Volume 3, and go to it for inspiration and motivation. Just seeing the different creative choices makes me consider what my tastes and talents are.

    ReplyDelete
  92. Love your block! I purchased Vol 2 out of boredom while waiting around in an airport. And I'm sew glad I did. What a treat! Fell in love with Snowman Farm (block 103 on page 23) and made 3 minis for xmas presents that year. So of course I had to purchase Vol 3 when it came out (after I didn't win one!) I have all my favorites marked but haven't made any yet although I have my eye on My Easter Dress (block 217, page34) for a special little girl I know. Can't wait for Vol 4 to be in the stores Of course MAYBE I'll be lucky enuf to win one first! Thanks for the chance.

  93. Congrats for be featured! I love your block because the ziggity mug rug was the starting point of all my quilting :) I never bought an issue of 100 blocks as it isn't sold in germany - so I absolutely need this special one!!! Thanks for the chance anyway!

    ReplyDelete

  97. Haven't brought or even heard of this book until just recently. But I'm just getting into quilting so that's not really much of a surprise. Do like your block - the graphic look is really very modern. Congrats!

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  99. I've not seen a previous copy of the magazine while I'm shopping. (I don't get out much!) So I haven't purchased any before now. But from what I've seen, this one is definitely worth looking for.

    ReplyDelete
  100. I thoroughly enjoy your blog. I visit often. I do not have a copy of this magazine, it looks wonderful and I would love a copy! I know you are super excited to have your block in this magazine. Sometime you will have to tell us how you balance a day job with quilting.

    ReplyDelete
  101. Wow, I love the fabrics you chose. They are different than a lot of orientals you find, more authentic.

    Would love the 100 Blocks!

  102. I have all three volumes in paper copy. They are so inspirational. Hmmm I can put this design in this project along with this design and have the perfect kids quilt. Hmmm this designer has had a block design in each volume and they all have the same theme. Accessories project? Eggs anyone? Anxious to see if you follow the pattern... Your design has me thinking of mens silk ties. That red shakes it up a bit! Thanks for a chance to win. Sandi

  103. I collect these issues, so when I get Vol. 4, I will have a complete set. They are so inspirational, thumbing through the pages. A good way to spend an afternoon.

    I like your block a lot, because of the geometric design of it. It's very balanced, yet unique! Congrats on publishing!

  111. Beautiful block! I used issue #1 for blocks in a scrappy warm tone batik and cream quilt. It provided an incredible variety.

    ReplyDelete
  112. I have to tell you as soon as I saw your block I knew what I was going to make! I have had my Dad's ties (rip) for years and I think I will make your block. Thank you!

    ReplyDelete
  113. I have two and three. Funny I've never actually made one of the blocks, but when I'm stuck with ideas that's one of the first things I grab. They really get the inspiration flowing. Thanks.

    ReplyDelete
  114. Congratulations John! Your block is really pretty. I have issue number 3 only. I bought at Jo Ann on impulse. I have made 1 block and plan to use it for a Christmas challenge.

    ReplyDelete
  115. Don't think I have any of the previous issues-but could be wrong. May just find one if I go rooting around in my magazine stacks!! Like your block, John, as I am more pulled to the "new" modern look lately! Great addition to my scrap quilt squares collection!

  117. Great looking block. Congratulations on having your block on the cover as well. I have bought Quiltmaker before and I have only one of the 100 Blocks issue. I have not made any of the blocks YET, but some are on the list.

  118. Great looking block and on the cover to boot. I have all three past issues that I had to buy. I haven't won one yet. Maybe this will be my year!

    ReplyDelete
  119. I won a copy of the first issue of 100 Blocks, and I am still in the process of completing a Christmas sampler quilt that utilizes some of the patterns in that issue. All the blocks have been made for more than a year...I started the sashing last Christmas, and now my goal is to have the top finished by this Christmas! The quilting will have to wait until the New Year!

    ReplyDelete
  120. I have a copy of Volume 3, but have not made any of the blocks due to life getting in the way since spring. There are quite a few marked to try though, Does that count? When I saw the cover I really was intrigued by what turns out to be your block. Now that, I would make now since it is a variety of fabrics.

    ReplyDelete
  121. I have not purchased a copy of any of the previous magazines. Following the blog posts makes me really desire a this one, I would love to win a copy.

    ReplyDelete
  122. Yes, I do have the other 100 blocks magazines. I won the first issue on the blog hop and purchased the others in the bookstore.
    It is great to see a man's block chosen...congratulations!

  123. I've never bought any of the 100 blocks magazines, though have considered it several times. Here's to hoping I win this one!

  125. Last year was the first I knew about the 100 Blocks, and I have the magazine. Havent made anything exactly as in the magazine yet, but it did inspire me to tweak one of the blocks to make it my own...

    ReplyDelete
  126. I haven't actually ever heard of 100 blocks - but I am definitely going to check it out!

  127. I have Vol #3 and am trying to get some of the blocks done now. I am a new quilter and I just love having so many blocks to choose from. I love how your block will make the zig-zag with the right choice of fabrics and placement. Congrats

    ReplyDelete
  128. I have vol #2 and vol#3. I have them so dog-eared you would think my 4 yr old son had been at them. But no, lil ol' me is making a bucket list. I'm a novice quilter, so my bucket is empty but my list is ginomous. Congrats on your first of many blocks to be included, I'm sure!!

    ReplyDelete

  130. It reminds me of a quilt made with ties, with the fabrics you used, love it.
    I like designs that can use scraps and changed by fabrics and colors.

  132. I've purchased all 3 previous editions and have used them for inspiration while I was in the 3 x 6 Flicker Bee. Congrats on having a block in Issue 4!

  134. Love your block. I combined your Block-a-palooza blocks, the P2 QAL blocks, and the Pearl block from the last issue of 100 quilts to make a larger quilt top. I'm hand quilting it now which is slow going for me. Thanks for the chance to win this issue of QM 100 Blocks as would like to make this one too.

  136. Great quilt John and HUGE congrats for being included in Vol 4.
    I have purchased all but the first issue although I may actually have purchased the electronic version of issue 1 but I haven't checked. I purchased the other issues because I was starting to become interested in learning to quilt and knew they were issues I needed to buy before they were all gone and that I'd have them for a time when I was doing actual quilting. I just finished my first quilting class in the past couple of months so I have not done anything from the magazines. I've only done the pieced sampler table runner from my class to date.

  137. What a cool block. Looks like it would have fun secondary patterns in quilt top.

  141. I for sure have issue 3, don't know right now about the other two. Have too many books and magazines to count, and keep track of. Haven't made anything with it yet, but have seen a lot of ideas that I will use in a quilt coming up.

  149. Congratulations on being included and appearing on the cover of Quiltmaker's 100 Blocks!
    I'm new to quilting but am completely hooked after making a tumbler cushion so I don't have any of the issues. Would be great to win one for inspiration.

  155. My mother gave me one once, can't say that I've ever actually used it. Of course, I'm only on quilt #2, so hopefully as I get more adept I'll crack it open for inspiration.

  160. I have every issue and used some blocks to create a fabric challenge item for our quilt show......it was a great way to try paper piecing!
    thanks so much for the chance to win a copy.

  161. I purchased all of the earlier editions of the magazine. I'd love to win one, one of these years. I use them mostly for inspiration, but it would be fun to try a quilt using all the blocks.

    ReplyDelete
