    She has alot of beautiful blocks in her paper piecing segment.

    I visited Pat Sloan’s website and could not stop. What a great site and lots of ideas. Plus really creative patterns–and a newsletter to sign up for–WOW!

  25. Kathy says:

    I do so love all the sites I’ve visited thus far – and such fun and wonderful info. Thank you for all that you’ve done to keep up up to date,

  26. Lori Smith’s website was full of applique and was great. I just picked a name to see so was very intrigued with her site as I love to applique.

  27. Carol W says:

    I enjoyed seeing the selvage items on Karen Griska’s blog, and the redwork Baltimore on Terri Clothier Thompson’s.

  28. Rosalind Gutierrez says:

    I went to Elizabeth Scott’s site and I think her little girl’s skirt made with a feature cupcake fabric was adorable.

  29. Janet says:

    The quilts for the twins are great!

  30. Rev. Diane Mettam says:

    I love Texas Circle Around by Lynn Roddy Brown – I love the use of scraps, and the motion in the square. It makes me smile!

  31. Joyce Penney says:

    I visited Monica Solario-Snow’s website and just LOVE the pennie pockets she has … a great little idea for Valtntine’s Day, but since money may still be tight next Christmas, I want to start creating for next year ASAP and these will be perfect! I love to have something small for everyone that comes for our family Christmas, and since I am now combining families with my boyfriend there are even more people for creative gift giving opportunities. And I ALWAYS love to have a little something for myself … so a 100 Blocks coffee mug will be perfect! Thanks for giving me the opportunity to win one.

  32. Jill Blissenbach says:

    I visited Monica Solorio-Snow’s site and LOVED her Ron Swanson quilt! Thanks

  33. Joanna says:

    I follow Kay Mackenzie and Eleanor Burns are they inspire me, but I like to visit quilt blogs so it was fun to do that with your list of designers. Heidi Pridmore’s children quilts were cute, and I like the fish quilt the best. Thanks for republishing Vol. 1.

  34. Jamey says:

    I’m new to applique and I’m lovin’ it!!!

  35. Chris Westbrook says:

    Chris Hoover! I read your blog because we share the same first name. Wow! We share more than that. Like you, I am an eclectic quilter. I love all aspects of quilting and so many different genres of quilt fabrics and designs. Winning the 100 Quilt Blocks would keep me inspired for many months to come. Thank you for the opportunity!

  36. Kathy Hassig says:

    Love the book.

  37. Carol Russell says:

    Just bought Volume 1. Now have all 6 issues. It is a wonderful resource quide and I have also subscribed to Quiltmaker magazine.

  38. Ann Hudson says:

    I visited Lynette Anderson’s blog/website, she has some really cute free patterns there. She also has a lovely little wooden kitty pin in her shoppe that I must have! >^..^<

  39. susan says:

    I just love all the clever applique blocks!

  40. Tatiana Campos says:

    Escribo de Chile y estoy tan feliz de que esto está siendo reproducido Me encantaría tener una copia, quiero aprender y me interesaría ser parte de las afortunadas

  41. Phyllis Godschall says:

    Love the Bonnie Hunter patterns in the Quiltmaker magazines.

  42. I am going to be teaching one of Eleanor Burns designs later this month and I enjoyed looking at the new things she has one her site. I also looked at some “new to me” designers and saw some interesting designs as well. Not enough time to do as much as catches my eye. Hmmmmmmm

  43. Charmaine Kramer says:

    As a new quilter I am very excited to see so many stunning blocks by talented people, the colours and creations are really inspiring. I have recently purchased my first 100 blocks magazine no 5, now want them all. :-)

  44. Gwen Burwell says:

    I enjoyed reading the story behind Jane Quinn’s block and how she was able to create the block even though she was recovering from cataract surgery and had some limited vision.

  45. Sharyn Massung says:

    Since I loved the blocks by Lynn Howell and Ann Weber, I decided to check out those two sites first, The Stitch Connection and Gingham Girls. Both have wonderful quilting projects. The Stitch Connection has wonderful patterns for the holidays that would be fun to make and use plus flowers, children and baby patterns and much more. I copied down some local stores that sell the patterns and hope they’ll have some that I like.
    The Gingham Girls has a book of patterns I love and can’t wait to work on. The patterns for Spring in Season’s Best are definitely calling me to be ready for spring! Well, off to check out some more sites and off to my sewing! (I have 3 quilts in progress and now I need to make a block I can enter for a mug since I give everything I make away: )

  46. Karen says:

    Just visited Fig Tree & Co site, which I love. I’m a fan of Joanna Figueroa’s fabrics and patterns. I also visited Heidi Pridemore and Laurie Simpson, 2 others I try to follow and love their patterns! So many of my favorites are listed, I’ll have to visit them all. I would love to obtain a Quiltmaker’s 100 Blocks Vol. I and give some new blocks a try. Would love a mug, but haven’t got the magazine yet so can’t make a block to enter! :-(

  47. Sharyn Massung says:

    There are so many talented designers out there-good thing since I could never come up with something myself! Patterns are sooo helpful and make the project go more smoothly too! Loved what I found by Ann Weber and Joanne Rowicki at the Gingham Girls site, especially Springs Best in the Celebrate the Season’s Book. I fell in love with a couple of the projects and look forward to giving them a try, especially like the table runners on their site. Another I checked out was Lynda Howell because I liked the holiday design shown on this site. The Stitch Connection has fantastic patterns for the holidays, flowers, babies and more. My only disappointment was that I have to go see if a local store has the patterns I want rather than purchase online. I copied down several stores but whether they’ll carry what I like is yet to be seen. Fortunately there are LOTS of other sites and patterns I discovered I liked and books of 100 patterns Out there that I can rely on!

  48. Geri Dunlap says:

    I am a subscriber to your wonderful magazine I also have a couple of your later 100 block mags but as relatively new quilter I missed the first and from a couple of the above blocks would dearly love to have it Would you be printing more volume 1′s
    Thank you for your reply Geri

  49. Mary Burn says:

    I like Karen Combs “Smoky Mountains” block. We live about 2 hours from the mountains and every opportunity that we get, we travel there to enjoy the beautiful mountain scenery. Thanks for including me in this fabulous giveaway — would like to have the mug and definitely the magazine.

  50. Andrew Kosmowski says:

    I’m planning a pineapple sampler. The “Bluebirds Welcome” block will be a great addition!

  51. Nancy says:

    I have copies 3-6. and have even been looking for 1 & 2 used, would love to win this copy or will even just be glad if I can get to Joanna and get this one before it is sold out

  52. Barbara Ostrander says:

    I’m making a simple read and green applique quilt, and need just 2 more blocks. I bet I could find them in the magazine!

  53. Sandra Stokes says:

    So many beautiful blocks and so little time to make all of them!! The design of the mug is wonderful!! Every quilter should have one! Anyone learning to quilt or a very experience quilter would love all of your 100 blocks magazine!

  54. Cathy Brown says:

    I adore the selvage projects I saw on Karen Griska’s website, particularly the potholders. This is such a fascinating and fun way to use those little bits that seem so utilitarian yet seem to be designed to throw away; they have a beauty all of their own. And now I no longer need to feel that sad wastefulness of throwing them out!! Thank you Karen.

  55. Kim McCloskey says:

    So here are some of the things I enjoyed while visiting the blogs and homepages. Edyta Sitar’s Laser cut silhouettes are tempting, especially the Spring Bouquet border. If you’re in the looking for some modern quilting inspiration, then Sue Garmen’s blog is the place to go. Jacquelynne Steves has some of the cutest patterns in her “free stuff” section, as does Carol Doak. Pearl P. Pereira (don’t you love that name?) has taken the Baltimore Album to a whole new level. And Wendy Shepard’s tip about zigzagging around the edge of a quilt before adding the binding will save some headaches on some quilts. Way to go ladies!

  56. Judy says:

    Ms. McNeill’s Bluebirds Welcome is sweet applique!Love the colors she uses!

  57. jeanne s. gantz says:

    i would love to get a copy of the book………im looking .. where.. can i get one…i learning to quilt. and i think i love it…….

    I went to Eleanor Burns website, and found lo and behold, another giveaway!

  59. Karrie Smith says:

    Thank you SO much for the reprint!!! I’m so excited to get a copy :)

  60. Nancy Currier says:

    On Sue Garman’s site I love the Pixelated color wheel. I think I am going to make a tote for my cousin using Peg Spiedin’s Spring Blossom. We are going to visit her across the pond in April and I think she would like it.

  61. I liked Wendy’s blog about zigzagging the edges of her quilt before applying the binding to eliminate the frequent puckers that can occur with a little slack in the edging.

  62. Terri says:

    I really like the Spring Blosom By Peg Spiedin, I have some pastel fabrics that I think would look terrific with this pattern

  63. Cathy Tomm says:

    I did not get a copy before. I would love to get a copy. thanks for the chance to win.

  64. Kd Brown says:

    I love Ann Weber’s designs and Kathy Schmitz’s block. Meg Hawkey has a great Sparkly Snowman project on her blog that I adore! Thank you so much for reprinting 100 Blocks Volume 1. That was a stroke of genius! :)

  65. MarciaW says:

    Thanks for the chance to win a copy of the first 100 Blocks magazine. I stopped by M. Dillard’s site and blog – I like her rulers and there is this awesome free BOM at

  66. Betty Simmons says:

    A lot of times, I just like looking at patterns, then decide what I want to make. And sometimes I just like looking at the patterns….What a way to end the day, after a hard day at work, to sit and look at patterns. I checked out some of the designer web sites, and would like to take time out to see all of them. Very interesting….I just wish there was more time in a day to be able to make more quilts…. :)

  67. Bj Bevins says:

    I also went to Wendy Sheppard’s website, liked her tutorial on zig zagging her binding as binding can sometimes be challenging, The Mug is adorable and would love to win the book! Thank You!

  68. Ruth says:

    I visited Wendy Sheppard’s blog and love the way she quilted her Mediterranean Mosaic quilt. I would love to win a copy of Volume I!

  69. Catherine Luhm says:

    Love Beth Hayes! I was reading about Tracee’s 36 quilts in 12 months. What a goal! And congratulations to Erin Russek for being Aurafil’s designer of the month! Would have loved to read what Diana McClun’s been up to, though she’s not posted in a while. Loving Jackie Robinson’s table runner, and her story about her cat getting warm! And how funny to see Pam Vieira-McGinnis is following the Bee in my Bonnet row along! lol


    Eleanor Burns was one of the first people to get me quilting I think her new QUILTS FROM EL’S KITCHEN looks very interesting, I also looked at Carol Doak’s new Downtown BMO ,wish I had more time and money I love to receive the 1st 100 Blooks book.

  71. Wendy says:

    How exciting! I’ve been following Celine Perkins for ages and love her four corners block. Also I adore Monica Solorio-Snow, the happy zombie is one of the most entertaining quilt blogs there is! Happy new year and thanks so much for the chance to win!!

    Thanks for the opportunity to get/purchase the First One. And, I’m looking forward to visiting the designer sites.

  74. Lisa B in AK says:

    Looking forward to Eleanor Burns new book. Thanks for the give away.

  75. Marilyn Snow says:

    I visited Emily Herrick’s blog and found a great woman to follow. I like how she is finding joy even with lots of trials in her life. Thanks for the reminder.

  76. Jane says:

    I want to go to Bozeman Montana in August and I really love Edyta’s work!! Visited both of these websites and just get so inspired and eager to create!

  77. Janice S says:

    I visited Pam Vieira-McGinnis’ Blog and downloaded the sweet “recipe” for the “Strawberry Delight” Pin Cushions.

  78. I’m just getting started! Thank you for all the links! And the chance to win 100 Blocks Vol 1! I will definitely pick a block and make something for the chance at the mug! Pinged back from my blog too!

    Angie Hodapp has a free pattern called “Scarecrow’s Puzzle” on Quilter’s Newsletter website. Very nice!
    Ann Weber’s Show & Tell page makes me want to make the “Reston” Quilt!
    Beth Ferrier’s Blog Entry today made me laugh. She’s “Treating” herself to a new INTENSE project! Inspiring!

    I SO want to thank you for this opportunity!
    I had missed out on getting Quiltmaker’s 100 Blocks – Volume 1, and am so happy to see it’s being reprinted!

    I also want to thank you for helping me get reunited with “old friends”, and meeting some new ones!…. I have not been able to quilt much for over a year now (after a bad fall and “life happening”)… and it was delightful to visit the designers’ websites, to see what they’ve been up to!
    (I am especially excited to learn from Pat Sloan about the Bloggers’ Block of the Month that Jackie Kunkel got going last year! What fun!.. I’ve missed a lot!)
    I’m excited about Quiltmaker’s 100 Blocks – Volume 1 being reprinted!!
    *Thank you!!*
    Now, I’m off to pull some stash, and play!
    Pat T.

  80. I especially enjoyed the fabric collections by Nancy – - Florenzia and Adeline. The prints are just beautiful.

  81. Leticia says:

    I decided to check out Edyta’s website. I liked it. Her patterns are rather graceful and I loved the colors.

  82. Alicia Key says:

    I WON that block of the snowman at the top of the post!

  83. Liz says:

    I have been trying my hand at paper piecing and checked out Carol Doak’s site :)

  84. Rosemary Y says:

    Love the snowman and all Christmas blocks as Christmas is my favorite holiday and I love love love snowmen. Keep up the good work!

  85. I am so glad you are reprinting this still on my wish list

  86. judy says:

    Thank you for introducing me to the many great sites. I spend way too much time looking:)

  87. Laurie P says:

    I visted Carol Doaks website. She has a new block of the month that I would dearly love to do, called “Downtown”!! I loved so many it is hard to pick just one. I will have to visit more tomorrow, I spent way too long on the computer today. Thank you for Vol. 1 again. Yeah, I am going to have to pick one up.

  88. Nancy Goucher says:

    Quiltmaker is my favourite quilting magazine. There is such a wide range of patterns & I especially love the childrens’ & seasonal themed ones. I’m missing volume 1 in my collection.

  89. Anita Ezzell says:

    While I visited more then one site, I really was impressed with Jan Quinn. I loved her charm quilts, great way to use my scraps! Or I just might buy one of her kits.:) Great site.Hope I win a book!

  90. patty Illingworth says:

    Love Carol Doaks paper piecing!! Totally enjoy checking out all the designers blogs!!

    The most favorite thing I found was on Wendy Sheppard’s “Ivory Spring” page, her “Country Breeze” quilt is just beautiful! Love it and love the colors.

  92. Chris says:

    Love the Whimsical Threads patterns and Ollie the Owl. Carol Doak’s “Downtown” is stunning.

  93. Tina Propes says:

    Love the mitten pattern! Glad to see the first 100 Blocks is reprinted. I joined the 100 Blocks bandwagon late and missed that edition. Hoping to get the printed version for my collection! Yipee!

  94. Brenda Dolha says:

    Glad i checked out EDYTA SITAR’s site… Inspiration for a memory quilt!

  95. Pingback: Quiltmaker is Having More Giveaways! yay! «

  96. Linda Wong says:

    Enjoyed seeing some of the first patterns that started the book rolling off the shelves! Congrats!

  97. Leann Stites says:

    I am such a quilting nut I could spend days looking at all the designs but one I am planning to use in a quilt soon is the Spring Blossom. My granddaughter saw this block and she fell in love with the colors and design. Sooo looks like Grandma will be busily rummaging through her stash to make a new quilt soon. I have several of the 100 Block magazines but not #1. I have tried unsuccessfully to find one so if you could pick me – then I would have the pattern to make my granddaughter her quilt. Otherwise I am going to have to figure it out and my figuring is not as good as it used to be :-)

  98. Vicki says:

    I enjoyed looking at Vicki Bellino’s blog! Sweet applique patterns. Thanks for letting me enter for a chance to win Volume I!

  99. Carol Thurk says:

    Thanks for all the inspiration!

  100. Lisa Marie says:

    I read many of these blogs so I decided to check out the ones I was not so familiar with. Lots of great discoveries! On Deborah C. Vollbracht’s blog I even found a free leaf hot pad pattern that is really cute!
