100 Blocks Designer Ann Weber

International Quilt Market is a wonderful chance to meet others in the quilt industry, and when I attended the Kansas City event in May, my focus was on meeting people who had designs in Quiltmaker’s 100 Blocks. Today I’d like to introduce one of the people I saw and some of the exciting things she has going.

This is 100 Blocks designer Ann Weber of Gingham Girls, in which she’s partners with her sister Joanne. It’s always fun to meet up with Ann and Joanne because they’re sweet and friendly.

Season's Best by Ann Weber of Gingham Girls

Ann has a new book out called Season’s Best: Celebrate the Seasons with Quilts. I liked it so much I picked up a copy for my personal library.

Sunny Days is the basket quilt over Ann's left shoulder.

And see the basket quilt over Ann’s shoulder? She told me a little secret. She ran out of time and put flowers on only half of the baskets.

What great serendipity! The quilt is much more interesting than it would be if all the baskets had flowers. This quilt is from a separate pattern called Sunny Days.

Flower Patch was Ann's block in Quiltmaker's 100 Blocks Volume 5.

Ann’s blocks for Quiltmaker’s 100 Blocks are always wonderful. Here’s her Volume 5 block, called Flower Patch.

Ann designed this table runner with her Volume 5 block, Flower Patch.

Ann’s block from Quiltmaker’s 100 Blocks Volume 1, Summer’s Best, was used in a quilt editor-in-chief June Dudley designed for Quilts from Quiltmaker’s 100 Blocks.

Summer's Trellis was designed by June Dudley using blocks from Ann Weber and Elizabeth Scott.

It seems certain we can count on Ann for more fun, flirty, feminine designs in the future. Be sure to check out the Gingham Girls website where you’ll find patterns, kits, fabric and notions.

And if you’ve yet to get your copy of Quiltmaker’s 100 Blocks Volume 5, I saw it in several stores last week, or it’s available at quiltandsewshop.com in both print and digital formats.
