Welcome Quilters!

Today is the last day of our Quiltmaker’s 100 Blocks Vol. 11 Blog Tour. We’re going out with a bang and showing you some of our favorite blocks. Remember, read down to the end of the post for a list of blogs with giveaways today!

Of course we had to show you Bonnie Hunter’s quilt block! The first thing I noticed? She used “I Love Carbs” fabric! That is my kind of quilt block. Dancing Dashes uses multiple churn dash units and a unique frame to make an eye catching quilt block. And in true Bonnie style, it’s scrap-tastic!

Dancing Dashes, Block #1082 by Bonnie Hunter for Quiltmaker’s 100 Blocks Vol. 11

Reflection is a quilt block by Denise Starck. Triangle-squares and the stitch-and-flip method comprise this teal and brown quilt block. With its clean lines, this quilt block would be an excellent candidate for intricate quilting.

Reflection, Block #1095 by Denise Starck for Quiltmaker’s 100 Blocks Vol. 11

This final quilt block by Debbie Taylor may be my personal favorite from all 100 blocks. I don’t know if it’s the fabric or the name, Pin-terest Wheels. I am on Pinterest quite a lot for Quiltmaker, and this reminds me of something I would see re-pinned over and over again. Hence, the name!
