    I don’t own any issues….how did I miss these?!?

  2. VickiT says:

    I realize it’s past the deadline for entry but, yes, I do own previous issues. I have all past issues of the 100 Blocks magazines. I’m very lucky that I have an amazing husband who goes on his lunch hour to JoAnn Fabrics to pick each one up on the date is supposed to be available. I felt so bad last week when I sent him there for this most recent issue not realizing it wasn’t available until the 19th. He wasn’t upset at all that I wasted his time. I’m so lucky that he’s such a great guy.

  3. Paul says:

  42. Ellen Prendergast says:

    This is the first time I have heard of 100 blocks…..it is breathtaking!!!

  43. Barbara says:

    I don’t own but intend to look at purchasing. Food for thought: what does a block say about a person? We all have our favourites. :)

  44. Mona says:

    I am only missing one issue – hard to find them in our small town – the stores never get enough copies.

  45. Loriann says:

    I do not own any copies, but I think I will need to obtain this one.

  46. Mandy Laseter says:

    By the time I had heard about the first edition of 100 Quilt Blocks, it was sold out. I would love to have all of them.

  47. Laura says:

    I’ve won a previous issue. I never can seem to get into a store when they are on sale. It would be great if I could get this added to my Quiltmaker subscription. Maybe you need to be a Quiltmaker subscriber to get this special issue mailed to you as a subscription?

  48. Debra Neiman says:

    I have issue #6

  49. Loretta Aymond says:

    I own a couple of the 100 Blocks volumes. But I would love to own all of them.

  51. Janette Martinez says:

    I own all 7 previous editions of Quiltmaker’s 100 Blocks. I spend hours looking through them mentally planning my next quilt, which of course changes each time I spend time looking through them! I have imagined many quilts being pieced using each of those magazines.

  52. Jacqui says:

    I do have a previous copy Quiltmakers’s 100 Blocks. I have been looking for the latest edition of 100 Blocks and can’t seem to find it in any of the quilt shops or magazine shops. Wonder if they have sold out already! They seem to take forever to get to NZ, so I’m going to download a digital copy from now on.

  53. Carol W says:

    I own (and enjoy) all of the previous issues.

  54. Loretta T says:

    I have all but one issue!
