Today is a special day! The latest issue of Quiltmaker’s 100 Blocks is officially on sale!
We hope you had a great time last week during our 100 Blocks designer blog tour. Today we continue unveiling blocks designed by the Quiltmaker staff. Here is my block from Volume 6 – a super cute fire engine, named Rescue No. 1! I just love it. I’m envisioning a whole fleet of vehicles down the road.
As “Mom” to a 12-year-old son, I often try to design more “boy-like” quilts since they seem harder to come by, so a truck block seemed like obvious choice this time. You may remember my skateboard quilt, Kickflip, which appeared in Quiltmaker May/June ’12 – another great pattern for the young man in your life. My son loves it on his bed.
Rescue No.1 does have it’s share of patches in it, however, the piecing goes together very easily. Take a look at this cutting list!
I got into a wee bit of trouble around here because my pattern takes up more than the allotted half page – whoops! The rest of the assembly diagrams are on another page because there wasn’t enough room – but it was too cute to try to simplify it! It helps that I “know people,” ya know?
So for stopping by our Quilty Pleasures blog today, you have an opportunity to win a complimentary copy of Quiltmaker’s 100 Blocks Volume 6 and a much-coveted 100 Blocks mug!
Leave a comment here by midnight MST tonight (11/13/12) giving a suggestion for my next vehicle block and you will be entered to win. One random winner will be chosen. Good luck! The randomly picked winner is comment #50 Debra Neiman. Congratulations!
