    I don’t own any of the issues yet but this blog tour has really sparked my interest!

He knows whether it’s Christmas, Mother’s Day, or a just-I’m -a-Fabulous-wife day, …he knows he can pick up a copy and it’s a winner winner chicken dinner kind of gift! He also doesn’t see me for about two days after he gives it to me, as I hide away and read the issue from dog ear to dog ear :)

    I own and love every single issue that has come out. I have even made a few of the blocks from different issues.

  49. I have all the previous issues. I’m addicted!

  50. Joanna says:

    You bet I have the other issues and use them all the time. I submitted four blocks to the Boston Modern Quilt Guild when they had a call out for blocks for the victims of the Marathon horror, and all of the blocks designs were from issues of 100 Blocks.

  85. Ferne says:

    I haven’t bought any of the other issues, but I might have to search them out because I seem to be on a constant hunt for fun blocks to try and there are some really great blocks in these books.
