Welcome to Day 1 of Quiltmaker’s 100 Blocks Blog Tour!
I’m so glad you’re here. We’ll have a lot of fun this week, as you visit blogs written by 100 Blocks designers and get a taste of what’s inside Quiltmaker’s 100 Blocks Volume 8. The cover for this issue is green so you’ll know what to look for on the newsstand next week.
Learn how a blog tour works. If you already know, great!
We have issues to give away and great prizes, too, including the traditional Great Big Bundles on Friday (one for U.S. visitors and one for international visitors). Please read to the very end of this post and leave a comment here to be entered in today’s giveaway: one copy to each of six winners!
Visit Quilty Pleasures each day this week, leading up to the release of Quiltmaker’s 100 Blocks Volume 8 on Tuesday, Nov. 19. You’ll have many chances to win a copy, or to win one of many other great prizes.
Two industry sponsors are participating today. We’re glad to have them along!
