    The Blog Tour gives me a chance to meet new folks and learn more about the art of quilting! Not an original answer, to be sure, but certainly the truth for me. Thanks for opportunities to connect even deeper into the quilting community!

  29. Nancysue says:

    I love the blog tour because you can find so many different styles, techniques, tastes..in one place. It’s like a really good food court :) The blog hop gives us the sampling of the diversity in store for us when we open the 5th edition. Kudos to the editors in giving us a melting pot of quilty goodness. Who knows? Maybe some modern quilters will see traditional blocks they love and viceversa!

  30. Billie K says:

    I love blog tours especially with the chance to win, but even without a prize I get to check out books, magazines, etc. I don’t drive so it’s let me see what’s actually out there with a chance to brouse the book.

  31. Kim says:

    I love the inspiration found. Colors I wouldn’t usually put together look so wonderful! I like the second teal colorway, as the bright teal block just brings you eye into the block, and several together would make a fun, bright, happy quilt.

  32. Carin says:

    My favourite thing has been to visit so many new blogs and all the different blocks!

  33. Just picked up a copy of the magazine today…Love it !!!! And thanks for the giveaway.

  36. Love the book and would love the big bundle to start on one of the quilts.

  37. Carla Williams says:

    I am on inspiration overload and wonder what inspired each block designer to make such beautiful works of art. I am trully inspired by all that I have saw on the tour. The thing that I enjoy most of all are the colors of the fabrics and the artful way that each piece is placed to make a completed block. To all that are involved you ROCK!!!!!!

  38. Elizabeth McDonald says:

    My favorite part of the blog tour is the amazing outpouring of talent! It is a wonderful opportunity to see the blogs of these talented designers.

    It’s great fun to learn about the designer behind the block — that’s my favorite thing about the blog tour! There are so many nice quilts just waiting to be made from these blocks, and that potential is what I love most about each issue of Quiltmaker’s 100 Blocks.

  44. Connie Tessier says:

    I really love the Pinwheel Posey. Now I’m off to visit the designers for more delights!

  45. I’ve been sick all week with pneumonia, so I just got in on the last day. I think my favorite thing about the blog tour is realizing all these talented people out there who also quilt. It is fun to see the new blogs. I’m so glad you have these tours, I’ve been a fan from the start and proudly own all the previous ones. I’ve had to buy most of them, I hope I can win this one. :D (cheesy smile)

  50. trillium says:

    My favorite thing about the blog tour was visiting so many quilting blogs that I wouldn’t have found on my own. I have bookmarked most of them as favorites, bookmarked tutorials, subscribed to a newsletter, and gotten inspiration by seeing so many designs for blocks. It’s been a great blog tour!

    Beautiful blocks!

  53. Maureen says:

    The greatest thing about the “tour” is the variety of blogs & blocks to devour! It’s virtually impossible for one to view all the blogs out there but with the tour you get to dip into places you may not have been aware of. And there’s no underestimating all the advice & tips you can learn from the fabulous quilters out there! Thanks for the chance at the give-away.

  57. Visiting the designers’ sites and learning about their blocks and also the giveaways ;D
    Thanks again for this great tour!

  58. Janet says:

    It is fun to read about the different inspirations that led people to their block – or sometimes just to read how excited they are to have a block in the magazine. I sure wish there was more opportunity to get one of those mugs though…

  59. Laura G says:

    My favorite thing about the blog tour is an excuse to look at different color combinations. I am a visual person and this helps me think outside my comfort zone. Thanks!

  60. Amanda E says:

    My favorite thing was seeing the lime and black fabrics that June posted. I WANT THEM! :P
