100 Blocks Blog Tour Wrap Up: Time to Sew!

QMMS 110058 COVER 2004 100 Blocks Blog Tour Wrap Up: Time to Sew!

Thanks for spending a little bit of time with Quiltmaker last week! We enjoyed your comments and all of the inspiration provided by our designers. Now that Quiltmaker’s 100 Blocks Volume 3 Blog Tour is over, it’s time to get your copy and start sewing! Ask for this newsstand-only issue at your local quilt shop, your favorite online quilt stores, at Barnes & Noble, Borders, JoAnn, Hobby Lobby and grocery stores. If you don’t see it on the shelves, ask the store manager to carry it in the future. If you can’t find it locally, you can order 100 Blocks Volume 3 from QuiltandSewShop.com.

We’re still waiting to hear addresses from some winners, so be sure to check your email (maybe even your junk folder) to see if you had an email from us or one of the designers asking for your address.

Remember, even though there may not always be prizes, you can still visit the designers from 100 Blocks for inspiration. We’ll be giving you a list soon of the remaining designers in the issue (they couldn’t all participate last week, so there are more to visit!)

Coming up in Quiltmaker, including new patterns from some of your favorite 100 Blocks Volume 3 Designers:
