Welcome back to
Quiltmaker’s 100 Blocks Blog Tour.
This is Day 5.
Already the week is winding down. We still have a bit of blog touring to do!
Today we have not only the giveaways on this post, but we have other BIG giveaways in separate posts. You’ll want to scroll down to see them. We’re giving away a Big Bundle of Quilty Goodness to one US reader and one reader outside the US. Lots of opportunities to win! Woohoo!
This tour has been full of ideas! I hope you’ve been inspired, as I have. It’s all I can do to stay at my computer and work, because what I really want to do is sew. What a great problem to have!
Let’s peek at a few more blocks from Volume 8, the green issue.
Lovely Garden was designed by Debbie Caffrey. It uses a cool technique: sew, cut, resew. You’ll love it. Debbie is teaching on Quiltmaker’s Block Party @ Sea next June. Sew much fun!
And here’s the quilt Scott sent us for the Designer’s Gallery, made using his Spring Action block. Absolutely smashing!
Today we have three industry sponsors. They all sent prizes for giveaway. Please support them when you visit your local quilt store. (No blog posts or separate giveaways to find for these folks.)
Red Rooster Fabrics sent fabric bundles for giveaway.
Quilting Treasures also sent fabric bundles for giveaway.
And that would be enough, but we also have a third sponsor.
Hoffman California Fabrics also sent fabric for giveaway!
