  1. I unfortunately don’t own any of these books but they’re on my wish list!

  2. Laura G. says:

    I own the issue you put out last May. I haven’t made anything from it yet. I should get it out and use it. I’m making my dad a couple of block each year for gifts. I bet I could find some blocks that would work for that in there.

  3. Teresa Puterbaugh says:

    No, but after seeing so many of the blocks in this new issue, I wish I did! ;)

  4. physicsmom says:

    The Blog Hop has been lots of fun. Unfortunately, I have not purchased any of the previous “100 Block” magazines. I’m definitely getting this one (if I don’t win one, that is), and will look at back issues of the others. They should comprise a nice library of inspirational blocks. I’m glad I stumbled on your site.

  5. Gloria Bruce says:

    I only have one but have not made anything yet.

  6. Diane Durrant says:

    I’ve had a wonderful time blog hopping. So many great patterns and fun blogs! I do have a couple of volumes, but not all (I wish I did!). I’ve made blocks from many of the patterns, but haven’t done a complete quilt out of any of them. Thanks for putting together such a great magazine!

  7. kathy says:

    Right now I can touch the first four issues immediately and I amsure the other two are close by. One of my favorite off the shelf purchases.

  8. Sandhya Karandikar says:

    As yet I do not have any of the issues but I plan to get them soon. These are not available in book shops here in India and I will have to order online. One I get the books I plan to make one quilt for each of my three daughters using blocks from all the issues.
    Thank you for a great blog tour and all the lovely giveaways.

  9. Ellen says:

    I received as a gift of the 100 blocks about a month ago. But have been traveling and taking care of my mom, who died 2 weeks ago. So haven’t had a chance to really look at it or make any of the blocks. But after this blog tour I can’t wait to start creating.

  10. Sandy Call says:

    I have the first 3 issues of the 100 blocks, I’ve gone so far as to re=create in EQ, but have yet to actually make any of the patterns.

  11. Brenda J. says:

    The blog hop is a fun event. I have Volume 6 but have not been able to complete an entire project yet. However, I’m looking forward to several in the future. Thank you for all the opportunities to see inspirational ideas, participate, and sew!

  12. Carla G says:

    I have the previous issue – volume 6 – but unfortunately I haven’t had time to make any of the blocks. I can’t wait until I have some time to do some quilting, but right now I’m sewing summer clothes for my kids. :)

  13. Laurel says:

    I own 3 volumes and, while I haven’t made any blocks, I’ve earmarked many to be combined in a future quilt.

  14. Rachelle says:

    Unfortunately I don’t own any of the volumes, but would love to at some point and will be keeping an eye open at my local store.

  15. usairdoll says:

    Such a great hop! Lots of wonderful blocks and amazing designers. I have two volumnes and want to get them all. I have several projects planned.

    Thank you for a neat giveaway and a chance to win.


  16. Kathleen H says:

    Sadly not an owner of any Volume yet….

  17. cindy tarrell says:

    sorry to say this is the first one I’ve been following and can’t wait to get it.

  18. Bonnie says:

    I have all the volumes of Quiltmaker’s 100 Blocks and have made several projects with the blocks. Love your magazine!

  19. Linda Roe says:

    I received a 100 block volume with my recent subscription of Quiltmaker Magazine.
    Haven’t tried a block yet.

  20. Sandyb720 says:

    I own the last one which I won. I haven’t made any of the blocks even though I have many marked to make. I just love the book and the wonderful talent in them.

    Thank you!

    sandyb720 at gmail dot com

  21. Barbara says:

    I really like this book I do Hope I might win one

  22. Collette McManus says:

    Love the 100 block issues. Can’t wait to add this to my collection. Thanks for the giveaway!

  23. Lyn in San Antonio, Tx says:

    I have collected all of them and have not made anything yet but plan on making some pillows for starters.

  24. Karen says:

    I am missing volume #2, but I enjoy looking through the other volumes constantly…I have not made a large project yet…Thanks for the chance to win.

  25. Carol W says:

    I own them all. I’ve enjoyed reading them cover to cover, and I’ve made small quilts for two guild challenges from the earlier volumes.

  26. Anda says:

    Yes I do own a previous issue but have not made anything blocks from it yet… awolk at rogers dot com

  27. Joy says:

    I have 5 volumes. I’ve taught several young ladies to make a quilted wall hanging. I usually let them pick a pieced block. They make the block and add a border. I’ll quilt it for them then they get to add the binding. It lets them get the feel for quilting and have a finished quilt.

  28. Brenda says:

    I have every issue of 100 block books, I have yet to make any of the blocks but these issues have been a great inspiration to keep quilting, I have many ideas and am planing to start them soon, thank you for the inspiration. Oh and can’t wait for this issue to be released.

  29. Jan F says:

    I recently found book 6 and bought it out of curiosity. I’m looking forward to using the blocks in it for friends and grandkids.

  30. Sue P says:

    I don’t have any previous issues but would love to win this one.

  31. Becky Hall says:

    I’d love to win – I have all of the previous 100 blocks issues, and would love to win this one.

  32. LJ says:

    I have 2 of the 100 blocks books which is pretty good since quilting is rather new for me. This is the 3rd 100 blocks books I’ve even been aware of. Yes, I have made a number of blocks from the last one. I’m lookin forward to making several of the blocks in this newest issue.

  33. Sally H. says:

    Yes, I have volume 6, but haven’t yet made anything from it, but this summer I will have plenty of time and plan to make something from both vol. 6 and 7.

  34. Judy J says:

    I have all of the previous issues but have not made any of the blocks. There are several I hope to make.

  35. Cindy B says:

    I have three of the issues. I have made Anita Grossman Soloman’s blocks the most.

  36. Lynda says:

    I have a couple of them and have not had the time to start any. Several UFOs to finish first, but they are wonderful for inspiration and dreaming.

  37. Rebecca says:

    Have read some of your issues but haven’t had the opportunity to make any of the blocks….been working on a quilt for a long while and hopefully will get to get something different soon. Really appreciate the opportunity for a chance at the GREAT prize (of prizes)!

  38. Cheryl B. says:

    I have one, I made a couple blocks from it.

  39. Diane Austin says:

    Have read and enjoyed a few issues, have not had the courage to do more than the simplest of blocks till this year. After seeing all the previews, it’s about time I get out of my comfort zone and try a few new things. Starting with some of these would be a great way to get my feet wet. Looking forward to this chance. Good luck everyone.

  40. Julie says:

    I have every 100 Blocks magazine…so far! Love, love, love them and have made several small quilts from them as well as used several blocks teach beginning quilters.

  45. ANGELIA BARGER says:

    Have volume 5, 6 and the reissue of 1. have not finished any quilts yet but have done a few blocks auditioning fabric choices.

  46. Diantha Howard says:

    I own volume 5, but I haven’t made any of the blocks yet. This volume looks just as great!

  50. ritainalaska says:

    i have all six previous issues and while i’ve read them, and i’ve oohed and ahhhed over them, i’ve only made one or two blox from each.

  51. Maureen says:

    I sure do own a couple of volumes but, sadly, I haven’t made anything yet! Thanks for a chance at the give-away!

  52. I have issue two thru five and have used some of the blocks as mini quilts for gifts.


  53. Susan says:

    I’m new enough to quilting that I don’t have any yet- but I am ready to jump in for this one!

  54. Ruth Alf says:

    I was given Vol 2 as a gift a couple of years ago when I first started quilting. I have made several of the blocks and have dog-ears and post-it notes on several more that I want to try. I wish I had more of them! Thank you for the fun quilt blog tour!

  55. LizaA says:

    I am fairly new to quilting and only have one issue. I haven’t made any blocks yet, but i love to look through the magazine and dream of the quilts I can make someday.

  56. Brenda Vanderheyden says:

  60. Laura says:

  61. apple blossom says:

    thanks for having the tour

  62. Judy says:

    I don’t have any of the previous issues. I am planning on getting this one next week.

  65. Pam says:

    I don’t own any previous issues because I never knew this wonderful publication existed until this blog hop. I will definitely never miss a future one though! Thanks for all the fun and inspiration on this hop!

  66. Alex says:

    I have all but two of the editions. I look at them all repeatedly!
    The older ones are just as fun as the newer.
    I have some “good intentions” but have not made a quilt from one specific pattern from the magazine.

  67. Jennifer B says:

    I have the first three issues and the 6th issue! I’ve made several of the blocks into little projects.

  68. Martha says:

    I have been making quilts for just a couple of years and have not had the confidence to just pick one or more squares to form my own piece of art. The tour through the various artists have inspired me to go out and get the magazine. Thanks for doing this!

  69. kathy h says:

    I have all but one of the issues and have made about 4 of the blocks. I really enjoy looking through them over and over.

  70. Antonia says:

    Yes, I have some earlier issues of 100 Blocks and have made some of the blocks.

  71. Christine Slaughter says:

    I don’t own any of them. This was my first time doing the 100 blocks tour, and it was a lot of fun. Thank you!

  72. Janine Huisjen says:

    I don’t have any of the volumes, so it would be nice to win one. : )

  73. Kay Ahr says:

    I own all the volumes and haven’t made a thing. I do have 15 of the blocks from Volume 3 drawn into Electric Quilt.

  74. Leanne says:

    I have most issues of this fabulous magazine that I intend to make quilts from as soon as my 5 year old UFO list gets down a bit :) thanks so much for a fab blog hop and giveaways !

  75. Denise says:

    I had one; someone borrowed to decide whether or not to buy one, and unfortunately it was not returned :-( Thanks for a chance to win one!

  76. Kathy L says:

    I have the last issue but can’t decide what to make first. Thanks for the chance to win.

  77. Ramona Collins says:

    I am a pretty new quilter, but have Quiltmaker’s 100 Blocks Vol. 1 in my library. I have not used any of the blocks yet to make a quilt. I am still waiting for it to dry out from all the drooling, lol.

  78. Darrell says:

    Nope. This was my first blog tour. I have enjoyed it immensely. What scrumptious blocks.. There have been many that I want to make immediately. Thanks to Quiltmaker for doing this and allowing my participation.

  79. Jenny Moore says:

    I have all the previous issues, and sure would like to get this one.

  80. Judy Bence says:

    I have the previous book and would love this new one as well. thanks

  81. Kate says:

    I have all the issues and have made a number of blocks out of them. Many more I would like to try too!

  82. Steph says:

    I ‘discovered’ volume 2, and it became one of my most used tools when deciding what block to make for the next swap. I was thrilled because most of our folks want 12 inch finished blocks, so these are perfect. I’ve been picking up each one since!
    By the time I realized what a treasure they were, volume 1 was no longer available in print, so I bought the electronic version. I was SO THRILLED that it returned to print, and used it as part of a gift for our annual holiday swap.

  83. Diana says:

    I have #1 and I have #6. Wouldn’t mind owning #7 or one of the great prize packages. Thanks!

  84. Mary Ellen Janes says:

    I am so enjoying watching & reading blogs actually doing a shop hop locally never did one before. Didn’t know how many great quilt stores there are not too far. Thanks MaryEllen Janes

  85. Miyavi says:

    Nope. I don’t own any copy. I’d love to check it out.

  86. Erin Bennett says:

    currently making a quilt using blocks from 100 Blocks and thoroughly enjoying it! :)

  87. Barb in MI says:

    Yes, I own volume 3 of your 100 block series and have tried the Bonnie hunter block Winston Ways – no quilt yet though… Thanks!

  88. Linda Webster says:

    I haven’t bought any of the magazines yet but I love all the blocks!

  89. Sherry Moran says:

    I have all of the previous issues except #4 – luckily, you reprinted #1, so I was able to get it. I have only two of the issues of quilts made from the 100 blocks, but love to look at them.
    Thanks for the magazines – I love to look at them and plan what I will work on next!

  90. Kathleen Wood-Kaiser says:

    I have volume 7, & am ashamed to admit that I haven’t yet made anything from it. I have spent a few hours looking through it, but I’ve been unable to make a decision. There are so many good patterns, it’s just hard to choose.

  91. Florence K says:

    I don’t own a copy , but am impressed by what I have seen so far. I would love to win a copy. I am new at quilting as well as many others I see..

  92. Patty Happel says:

    Love the blog hop. Didn’t get to spend as much time as I would have liked, but then all day is probably too long!

  93. edith mascia says:

    I don’t own any of the previous blocks magazines but I have already purchased the new mag. I don’t have any faith in winning one so I bought it today.

  94. Becky S says:

    I have a couple issues of 100 Blocks. I haven’t made any blocks yet, but I hope to soon.
    Thanks for the chance to win.

  96. Kaye M. says:

    I own the 3 most recent issues of 100 Blocks. I have made blocks from the last 2 issues. One was for a scrap quilt and the other for a guild challenge.

  97. Nancy says:

    I have all but volume 2. Waiting for the reprint to get that one. No i haven’t made anything out of them yet. Can’t wait to get #7

  98. Theresa Thomas says:

    I own a previous issue, but haven’t made any block from it, as I have been concentrating on completing UFOs before starting anything new. :)

  99. I owe 2 but haven’t made anything from them yet.

  100. Monica Gardea says:

    This is my first time at Quilty Pleasures and I do not own any volumes. I just heard of this through my Facebook feed and I’m excited to try this out.
