Welcome to Day 2 of Quiltmaker’s 100 Blocks Blog Tour. We’re off to a great start. In case you missed it, see yesterday’s Day 1 post. One other note: one website in Volume 4 is listed incorrectly. Please note the correct website address for Cleo Mounday is cleosdesigns.com. Cleo designed block #315, Prickly Pear Cactus.
Today’s featured sponsor is Kansas City Star. Be sure to visit them for a giveaway of 100 Blocks Volume 4! They’ve also generously provided books from their authors in this issue of 100 Blocks to be included in today’s three prize bundles. See the bottom of this post for details and leave a comment to enter.
The Kansas City Star books you might win include:
A few blocks to get you going:
I fell in love with Beth Ferrier’s Christmas Partridge the minute I saw it. I saw Beth at market but by the time I realized it was her, she had passed and I missed her. What a talented applique artist.
Wind-Surfing by Nan Baker does amazing things when it’s repeated and rotated, as seen below.
When you get your copy of Volume 4, you’ll see that Nan has a Wind-Surfing quilt in the Designer’s Gallery, which covers five pages and features 22 projects. We think you’ll love it.

Remember to visit Kansas City Star for a chance to win a copy of Volume 4. Below is Midnight Flight—you might recognize it as a Bonnie Hunter design. It’s very “Bonnie,” don’t you think?!
