Welcome to Our 100 Blocks Vol. 13 Blog Tour!
We’re so excited to kick off our 100 Blocks Vol. 13 Blog Tour! We have five full days of quilting fun planned for you, all celebrating the release of Quiltmaker’s 100 Blocks Vol. 13! This new edition of 100 Blocks includes 100 new creative quilt blocks from today’s top designers. The issue will be on newsstands May 3, or you can grab a print or digital issue now from our online shop. We hope you’ll join us each day this week, May 2-6, as we dive into the issue with quilt block previews, designer inspiration and lots of great giveaways!
Let’s Preview Some Blocks:
Vixen: Our QM associate editor Erin Russek designed this appliqué cutie, and we absolutely love it. Erin used Cherrywood Hand Dyed Fabrics to create the block.
Polar Star: Designed by Karen Ackva, this foundation-pieced block is shown in Kona Cotton Solids and Quilter’s Linen from Robert Kaufman Fabrics. Check out our giveaway at the end of this post for details on how you can win some Kona Solids for yourself!
Picket Posies: This floral pieced block designed by Greg Jones is perfect for springtime. Greg made his block using Strawberry Fields fabric by Fig Tree & Co. for Moda Fabrics.
Lovely: Who doesn’t love a pretty heart block? Corey Yoder made this pieced block using her Prairie line for Moda Fabrics along with Essex Linen from Robert Kaufman Fabrics.
