Quilts from Quiltmaker’s 100 Blocks, Fall ’14

We’ve taken designs from Quiltmaker’s 100 Blocks and created new quilts. The patterns are in this great new issue—19 of them! The issue is $6.99, so that’s a lot of bang for your buck.

I’m partial to this quilt because I designed and made it. It was the quilt where everything went wrong (blog post to come) but I love the result. Sewful Things is perfect for any quilter and her sewing space. I started with I’m Sew Happy, below.
