100 Blocks Volume 4: Hat’s Off

You know how some people are “hat people”? You know, those people who look really cute in casual ball caps, fancy Easter hats or some other stylish hat? Not me. I’ve never been able to pull off wearing a hat very well. I don’t know if it’s the shape of my head or face, but I never seem to look right in them. That is until now. This is the kind of hat I can pull off!

    all these blocks would make a really cute quilt.

  2. Diane Harris says:

    Believe it or not, as I was growing up in the 60s, my mother and her friends always wore hats to church, and often they wore gloves, too. Maybe a foundation with fancy pants ladies’ gloves could be next! Your sense of design is wonderful. The little purses are so precious!

  3. Lisa Potter says:

    I love the hats. It would make a cute wall hanging. with some bling.

  4. Krista says:

    If only I had a fashionista. I need someone to pull me out of my rut. But alas, there really isn’t one. My sister does her best, but 3000 miles between us makes her job tough :)

  5. I wear hats all the time, but the people who look really good in them are my grands. At 4, they love hats and look truly great in them. At every quilt show i always try on the hats and look for the quilt lady. I even took a hat making class and learned to make one (notice one). I guess i should take the class again. I LOVE hats – big, small, purple or plain

    my little grand daughter has a Bday coming up, how cute would it be to do a combo of blocks in her favorite colors. cw

  14. Janet says:

    All your blocks are so clever! Two of my three daughters are fashionistas – so fun to see what they come up with to wear. My third daughter is more like me – comfortable is more important than looks…..

  15. Loretta says:

    I would have to make a “fashionista” quilt for my oldest sister! She is the dressiest out of the 5 sisters and she would definitely enjoy a new quilt. I might also think about making one for my Mother-in-law!

  16. Gina says:

    My youngest daughter is the fashionista. I could make her a whole quilt of just your shoe block and it wouldn’t represent half of her closet!

  17. Shannon says:

    Luckily in my life I don’t have one. Both of my girls just want to look nice but don’t need to live high on the hog. I love all of your blocks together. They will make a great quilt when put all together.

    hubby’s boss is the fashonista we all love – she’s a hoot!

  25. Debbie in WA says:

    Cute blocks ~ my fashionista is ‘thrift shop comfy’ for sewing.
    My family loves the fashions in quilts and I enjoy stitching.

  26. Janet says:

    What a cute hat block! I love hats, but sadly have been told by my husband that I don’t look that great in one. An honest man– : ). My fashionista is my oldest daughter. She looks great in anything tho.

  27. Tamsyn says:

    The fashionista who would love a quilt with these blocks is my daughter. Beautiful blocks!

  28. VickiT says:

    Well, she’s actually not around any longer but my Mom was from the South and had an entire collection of hats, matching purses and shoes. From her age group, Southern women always wanted to be sure they were dressed with all those things matching like that and even though she married and move North, she still carried on the Southern gal traditions.

    But, I have a good friend who is actually the age a daughter of mine would be if I had one and she’s a true fashionista. She would love a quilt with all your blocks, especially the shoes! She’s a HUGE shoe fashionista. The new block this year of the hat is awesome. Now I’m wondering what you’ll come up with for next year.

  29. Nancy B says:

    My granddaughter (soon to be 15 yrs. old) is the fashionista in my life. She wears the latest styles with fun and flare. Thanks for the give a way.

  30. JeanneG says:

    My “fashionista” could only be my new daughter-in-law. She has a great love for all things that are high in the heel, short in the length and fun on the head, she can wear a hat with no problem. In fact, I would love to make her a quilt using these elements. Thanks for a chance to win ::0

  31. Sharon says:

    My 30 year old daughter is totally the fashionista in my life. She always has the just right outfit and definitely always the right shoes. She loves the guilts I make but I know she would love those shoes in a quilt. Where do I get Volume 2? I have Volume 3 and LOVE it! I would love to have Volume 4. Thanks for the great blog!

  32. Kris D says:

    The Fashionistas in my life are my two girls. They help to keep me looking ‘young’. These blocks would be so cute in a throw for any Fashionista!

  33. Phyllis says:

    The fashionista in my family is my 84 year old Mom. She always leaves the house with full makeup, dressed in her animal print and high heel shoes. She has a lot of bling around her neck, on her fingers and around her wrist. She visits the beauty shop each week to get her hair done and sleeps on a satin pillowcase. She has every closet in her house filled with beautiful clothes and shoes. She is battling breast cancer right now, but she is so courageous and doing great.
    Love the cute blocks you made!

  34. Sandy A in St. Louis says:

    Love those blocks! I need to make them in to a wallhanging for my mother in law. She was quite the fashionista when she was younger and still likes to dress up!

  35. Debbie Williams says:

    My fashionista would be my 6 year old granddaughter and she gets it from her mom.
    My daughter would love the shoes and purse blocks. She has tons of both. Great ensemble (sp?) Thank you for sharing your lovely work

  36. Diane D. says:

    Very cute blocks! I never had a good fashion sense, but did enjoy wearing hats in my youth. My cousins were not necessarily fashionistas, but they were always very fashionable and I truly enjoyed receiving their hand-me-downs when I was growing up.

  37. Cecilia says:

    The fashionista in my family would be both of my daughters. They have different styles, but both are very fashionable. I love the hat block!

  38. candace says:

    what a cute block! The fashionista in my life would be my daughter…she’s way more interested in what’s trending than I…still sitting here in my jeans and t-shirts after almost 50 years, lol.

  39. Karlene says:

    My sister would be the fashionista–has to everything just right and always has up-to-date clothes and new shoes with matching accessories.

  40. Joan M. says:

    I have 2 fashionistas – my adult daughters Lisa and Karen. They are always surprising me with their new styles.

  41. The fashionista in my life is a 12 YO going on 25! She needs to learn some terms though because she keeps asking me for BLANKETS and not QUILTS! lol
