    Have spent about 2 hours so far!

  2. Pingback: Quiltmaker’s 100 Blocks Vol. 7–Blog Tour Day #5 | QuiltMouse

  3. Louise Buker says:

    I think I have one of your books. I like to see all of the different ideas, however getting them made becomes another thing. Sometimes there just aren’t enough hours in the day. Thanks for all the ideas.

  4. Barbara Anderson says:

    I don’t own any of the 100 block books. But……. this will be my first, no matter what. All the blocks are amazing, the tours inspiring, and the event an impetus to get back to work!!!!!

  5. mary wrigley says:

    Just getting back to quilting after 27 years away. This looks like a book for me, so modern.

  6. Marsha Kestner says:

    I have volume 5 but sad to say I haven’t made any blocks from the magazine. Thanks for the chance to win!

  7. Sandra says:

    I would love to win this lovey book of 100 blocks, I would make this a better week, since I just got laid off from work

  8. Absolutely…I own every single one of the 100 blocks magazines! My absolute FAVE!
    And I have made many blocks from them. My favorite quilt that I am working on is a scrappy Knot Block project – I think vol. 3 and pattern by Tina Curran…yum!

  9. Barbara says:

    No, but am looking forward to winning one

  10. Elaine H. says:

    No I don’t have any of the previous volumes but would love to get my hands on this one. Thanks for the opportunity.

  11. VickiT says:

    Yes, I own the physical magazine of all except the first one, but have since purchased the pdf version of that. I have made a couple things but it was in my early days of learning to quilt and they didn’t look very nice so I tossed them. :(

  12. Pat Blanton says:

    I’ve never had the pleasure of viewing your magazine. Based on your supporters it must be a tool I am missing out on. While I don’t expect to win; I’m sure the winner will be getting a great set of products!

  13. Linda Guza says:

    I have the first edition only. I find a lot of inspiration for projects by looking at the many styles of blocks.

  14. Cathy Jones says:

    I don’t think I own any of these books. I loved the idea of “birthday blocks” someone posted above! Now I have a reason to buy the books!!

  15. Tania Gillan says:

    I love these magazines and have a couple other issues but they can be hard to find here in Australia. Really hoping I can get my hands on a copy of this one!

  16. Helen Poole says:

    I have a couple of the 100 blocks books and I also have the 200 blocks with the CD. I have made a few of the blocks into quilts ,, especially for the baby quilts.
    thanks for the opportunity to win this years book..

  17. Claudia says:

    I think I missed the time cut off, but yes, I do all of the volumes of blocks. I’ve won several and you published a picture of a table runner I made using one of Margaret Miller’s blocks. She always is good for a challenge, keeping things fresh and new.

  18. Lisa B says:

    I’ve never seen the magazines for sale so I’ve never made anything from them. Our area doesn’t carry many quilting magazines.

  19. Jackie says:

    What awesome blocks. Can’t wait to add this volume to my collection.

  20. Debi P says:

    I can’t wait until Tuesday to pick up my copy of the next issue of 100 quilt blocks!!!!

  21. Mara Cockman says:

    Sadly, I don’t have any of them in my library. I’ve only recently started quilting (6 mos ago). I will definitely be picking up this one though. So many projects to plan :-)

  22. Lynn Zander says:

    I do have a previous issue, but have not made any of the blocks. :(

  23. Valerie says:

    Yes, I have Vol 6 and vol 3. I made two blocks from vol 3 soon after I got it, but I do not recall their names or the designer, and I cannot put my hands on that issue right now to look because it is packed away in a box temporarily. These collections are such a great inspiration.

  24. Terri Alsobrook says:

    No, I’m relatively new to quilting and do not own any quilting books other than a quilt in a day book by Eleanor Burns.

  25. Linda says:

    Hi, Yes I own three or four of them. I haven’t made anything from them yet, but I certainly have plans to. Thanks for the chance to win and all you do for the quilting world.

  26. Marie says:

    I own 4 of the magazines, I wish I owned them all! I have made quite a few of the blocks them. Just started paper piecing so I’ve been looking in them for what to make next!

  27. Diana M says:

    I don’t have any of the previous volumes, but I definitely plan on getting volume 7 this time around!

  28. Rosemary Younce says:

    I have all the 100 blocks except Volume 3 – I would love to win a copy of Volume 7.

  29. Ellsie says:

    I don’t have any previous 100 block books, so haven’t made any. would love to win to find out all the excitement. Thanks for the oppty.

  30. Patti says:

    No I don’t own any. This is the first year that I have heard of it’s existance.

  31. Wendy Owens says:

    I don’t own one but would like to

  32. laurie says:

    I don’t own any of the books . . . yet!

  33. Unfortunately I don’t own any of the books. It’s taken me a while to appreciate this site. sorting out which sites are worth following.

  34. Vivian says:

    I own volume 6, (won it here), I made 2 blocks but didn’t like my color choices then never got back to them. But I love one enough that I was trying to make an entire quilt from it.

  35. Sandy Y says:

    I don’t own any of the 100 blocks issues but I do read Quiltmaker. Thanks for the giveaway.

  36. SewCalGal says:

    I’ve certainly enjoyed this blog hop and I always enjoy the new issues of Quiltmaker’s 100 blocks. Thank you for doing this! I don’t have every issue, but have quite a few. And, I have made a few projects with them. They are also helpful to inspire me when using EQ7 to design a project, where I can easily incorporate the block designs from various issues and see how they work together.


  37. Suzanne Beyer says:

    I don’t own any of the issues.

  38. MaryBeth says:

    I have the very first one!!

  39. edie says:

    You have inspired me to get some projects done so that I am ready to start some new ones!

  40. linda says:

    I have volumes 1,2,3,5&6. I made a wall hanging using blk #110 & 181 which was a guild challenge and ended up being hung in a local restaurant. Also used the star blocks as a guild BOM.

  41. Linda Erickson says:

    Yes I own one but haven’t made anything from it – YET!

  42. Adeline says:

    No I have nothing. Oh please give me some inspiration. I want to retire this year and sooo hope to get going on some charity quilts out of my stash and be able to have the time to shop for some more of the fabrics in your blog blocks.

  43. julia says:

    i own a couple of them. When i cleaned out my quilting magazines etc. this year, those got carefully re-stashed. Someday when i’m not working full time material.

  44. Bonnie Thiem says:

    I’m sorry this tour is over. I looked forward to each day. Thanks for the opportunities each day for the different contests.

  45. would love to win thanks

  46. Barbara says:

    I do believe this is just what I need for the winter travels, one day at a time

  47. gwen ziegler says:

    so much eye candy…. are any of these pp?
    I do not own any of the 100 piece blocks, but next time I am at my LQS I will check it out.
    Thanks for the blocks

  48. Mom C says:

    I made one from last years magazine and 4 from the year before. I expect to use several that I’ve seen in this blog hop. They have been fantastic. Thanks.

  49. Darlene Krystal says:

    that was a great tour…I had so much fun…..I ended up with 35 squares and ideas on how to use them…but I know they’ll go into my scrap block pile for quilts…Thanks so much for a great time…..I have no.s 1, 4, 5, and 6 of QM 100s and am loving every block…..There are a lot of applique blocks in the volumes and that’s what I love the most…..it lets me use up my scraps in a variety of ways…Again thank you and keep up the great work…..

  50. Pam Thompson says:

    I don’t have a copy of 100 blocks, I have seen them online but can’t find them in my area. I live in rural GA with few quilt or fabric stores. I would love to be able to preview a few of the pages before purchasing a copy. I just love quilting books. I may never make a project but I love to dream. I never toss a quilting magazine , it is so relaxing to view the beautiful quilts.

  51. GAIL STEVENS says:

    I do own one of your Quiltmaker 100. I hope to make a quilt soon.

  52. Denise :) says:

    I have the last several … maybe four? … issues. I *love* them and love trying new block constructions, so yes, I’ve made several things! It’s great stuff and I look forward to this issue every year. I’d love to be a block tester, but haven’t succeeded in that just yet. I’ll keep trying!! :)

  53. TerryH says:

    I don’t have any of them but have been a quiltmaker subscriber for over 20 years

  54. toni-anne says:

    Yes I have two in my library and though I’ve not reproduced exactly have been dazzled, amazed and inspired by them and more importantly gotten to know the wonderful creators as you introduced us one by one in these blog hops and my own subsequent investigations. I feel the bridge your 100 block magazine creates is an invaluable tool in bringing the quilting community worldwide together for I think that we are all facets in the same gem who are blessed by the input that each one brings helping each other to find our true place to shine.

  55. Leslie Schlaefli says:

    Yes, I own past Quiltmaker 100 block issues. I even own multiple copies of an issue because I didn’t realize I owned it and bought it again. LOL. I haven’t made anything, yet. Just a lot of drooling.

  56. BRENDA SUTTON says:

    I do not own any of the Quiltmaker’s 100 Blocks previous volumes, but would love to. I am new to quilting. Thank you for the giveaway.

  57. Barbara says:

    I have volume 3&4 of Quiltmaker’s 100 Block. I have not made any blocks but do favor several in each issue.

  58. Patsy Pearl says:

    I do not own this magazine yet, soon I hope. nice blocks.

  59. Maryln Fleming says:

    I have all of the Quiltmaker’s 100 blocks issues that have been published so far. I have completed 3 quilts so far using blocks from those issues and have already started working on quilts 4 and 5.

  60. Kathy C says:

    I would love to add this to my quilting library.

  61. Virginia Pflum says:

    I haven’t seen a copy of 100 blocks, but will be looking for it the next time I’m at my quilting shop.

  62. Giney says:

    I’m a new quilter, and own one copy of a previous 100 Blocks magazine. I started off making one block, which turned into 30 blocks, and is now almost a quilt! Excellent magazine, and thank you for the chance to win a copy of the new edition!

  63. Jodi says:

    I own one volume, I just started quilting in January so I hope to continue to collect more of this great magazine. I’ve made the bunny appliqué block, my first try at appliqué.

  64. Belinda K-N says:

    Sadly, I’ve never owned a copy…and this is my first blog tour…however, I am now smitten and can’t wait to search out the new issue and possibly some past issues! Thanks for the creative ideas and inspiration…

  65. Carole Johnson says:

    Sorry to say I don’t own any of the 100 blocks issues, hoping I might win one

  66. Jenny says:

    I do NOT own any! I am new to quilting but am gathering up all sorts of inspiration for projects. :)

  67. MARIE says:

    Such awesome blocks! Such talent! Thank you for sharing. I love these magazines, although I only own 2. I am thinking I will have to get this one too. Each block is very inspiring. Thank you again

  68. Donna says:

    I don’t own any of the books so far. However, this blog hop is motivating me to buy the current one and some of the past books. A gift here would get me started!

  69. Lynn C says:

    Unfortunately I don’t have a copy but would LOVE to win one! Or anything else for that matter!!!

  70. Laura G says:

    Yes, I own one I purchased last year, but have not yet made a project from it yet.

  71. Holly says:

    I own one, maybe #4, and I have made one block from it for a sampler quilt. I like seeing all the blocks but I tend to stick to my ole favorites, like sawtooth star and ohio star.

  72. Lee says:

    I have the last years issue and love it! thank you!

  73. Yes – I have several of them, and now that I’m out of grad school I plan to use a number of the blocks to make quilts with. =)

  74. Stephanie A says:

    Actually, no. I’ve only just started collecting quilty books & magazines in the past few months. I’m so happy to add this to my collection though…yay! My mom has a motherload of these though!

  75. Djoekie says:

    I like the gail pan block. hope to learn a lot

  77. becanne says:

    Yep – I’ve got one and they are the perfect size for pot-holders to practice new techniques.

  78. Lea J. says:

    I don’t own any of the pervious issues simply because I’m very new to quilting. I hope to own one very soon though :)

  79. I’m sorry to say I don’t own any of the previous editions. I tried to find them, but I haven’t been able to yet. :(

  80. Pamela R in Leaburg says:

    I do have several of the 100 blocks and have used a few blocks; have ideas how to use others (add them to the stack) thks.

  81. Margaret Lawrence says:

    I don’t any of the previous issues… all the more reason to wish for luck in the drawing!

  82. Sandy W. says:

    I did own previous issues of the 100 Blocks, which I foolishly passed along to others. I did make a small wallhanging using one of the blocks from Vol. 6. I can only say that the recipient was thrilled to get it.
