And that means the 100 Blocks Blog Tour is next week. If you’ve been on the blog tour before, you know how much fun we have. If you have not, you’re in for a treat.

It works like this. Come to Quilty Pleasures daily from Monday, April 29 to Friday, May 3. We’ll have posts each day with lists of block designers and industry sponsors. The lists will link to more blog posts where you’ll see the blocks and hear the stories behind them.

Shabby Spin by Melissa Corry was featured on her blog during last fall's blog tour for Volume 6.


You may see how a designer came up with her block, or problems she had to solve, or other versions she tried in the process. The designer may show you how her block looks in a setting, or in several.
