If you’ve been seeing hot pink around lately, you may have gotten wind that the release of Quiltmaker’s 100 Blocks Volume 7 is just around the corner. (May 7 to be exact.)
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.
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.
You’ll get ideas. You’ll be inspired. You’ll want to sew!
One of the highlights of the blog tour is all of the giveaways. We’ll have daily giveaways here on Quilty Pleasures, and all of the designers will have giveaways too. There will be many, many chances to win the issue, but that’s not all.
There will also be giveaways from the industry sponsors. They’ll include fabric, books, patterns, notions–just about everything your quilty heart desires.
And of course there will be mugs. The 100 Blocks mugs have become much sought-after. They are little treasures. We’ll give some of them away too!
We’ll have a good time next week so I hope to see you right back here. By now, can you tell me what the color theme for this issue is?
Leave a comment below by midnight Sunday, April 28 with your answer and I’ll choose a U.S. winner for a bundle of quilty fun. If the winner lives outside the U.S., a digital issue of her choice will be substituted. Good luck! The winner of this giveaway is Theresa, commenter #72. Thanks to everyone for participating.
