Welcome to Our 100 Blocks Vol.14 Blog Tour!
We’re so excited to kick off our 100 Blocks Vol. 14 Blog Tour! We have five full days of quilting fun planned for you, all celebrating the release of Quiltmaker’s 100 Blocks Vol. 14. This new edition of 100 Blocks includes 100 new creative quilt blocks from today’s top designers. The issue will be on newsstands November 14th, and will also be available in our online shop. We hope you’ll join us each day this week, November 14-18, as we dive into the issue with quilt block previews, designer inspiration and lots of great giveaways!
Let’s Preview Some Blocks:
Sweet Cupcake: How adorable is this foundation-pieced block designed by Kristy Lea? A heart serves as the “cherry on top” of the cupcake, making this block as sweet as can be.
Cottage Blossoms: We just adore this unique block designed by Rebecca LoGiudice. Notice the little button “doorknobs” stitched on the cottages? It’s just too cute!
Layered Lanterns: QM associate editor Gigi Khalsa designed this vibrant and intriguing block. Aren’t those watercolor-like fabrics she used gorgeous? They are from the Vincent Van Gogh 2 fabric collection by the Van Gough Museum for Robert Kaufman Fabrics.
Laser Beam: This foundation-pieced block was designed by QM acquisitions editor Lori Baker. It’s a fun take on the traditional pinwheel block and is sure to brighten any quilt.
