Quilts from Quiltmaker’s 100 Blocks will sell out quickly so when you see it locally, grab a copy while you can. We recommend buying it from your area quilt shop. Other places to try are Barnes & Noble, JoAnn, Hobby Lobby and many grocery stores. If you can’t find it locally, you might ask the manager to get it (this issue will remain available to retailers long after the grocery stores have sold out). If you can’t find it locally, you can order it from

And since we’re all excited about 100 Blocks news, have you checked out My EQ Boutique? We’re very excited about this fresh collaboration between Quiltmaker and The Electric Quilt Company.

My EQ Boutique is a new website offering traditional and contemporary downloadable quilt and block patterns to print in any size you want. Free software for collecting and printing patterns is included with your first purchase.

Quiltmaker is happy to offer all of the patterns from Quiltmaker’s 100 Blocks Volume 1 through My EQ Boutique! The entire Volume 1 block collection is available as a set for one low price, or you may purchase the blocks individually.

But here’s the great news: EQ is running a special on Volume 1. You’ll get 15% off the regular price of the Volume 1 set when you use this promo code QM15 through the end of March. That takes the regular price of $29.99 for 100 block patterns down to less than $26. That’s a lot of bang for your buck!

There are so many great advantages to owning the patterns in this format.

• No size limitations—print any block at any size
• Purchase and/or print only the patterns you want
• Patterns take up no physical space, everything is stored electronically
• Pay no shipping
• Patterns are available instantly and at any time thereafter
• The blocks can be imported and used in EQ7

We think you’ll love this great new option for owning 100 Blocks patterns. Take a peek at My EQ Boutique.

And as a wrapup, here are a few more projects included in Quilts from Quiltmaker’s 100 Blocks. Below is Fashionista, designed and made by Denise Starck, QM’s Graphic Designer.

    Is turquoise/aqua one of “the” colors for spring? I noticed it was in one of the quilts last night, and one tonight. One of the most pleasing colors of the color wheel to me. Look forward to Volume 5, as well as this new current edition.
