Editor's Note
Dear Quilting Friend,

Quiltmaker's 100 Blocks Volume 6 is generating a lot of excitement. It has so many wonderful blocks and great ideas for quilt projects. We encourage you to find it locally at a quilt shop or newsstand. Our quiltandsewshop.com carries print and digital versions, too. Pick the one that suits you best!

You have a chance to win 10 of the actual blocks from this issue in our haiku contest. It's easy, it's fast and it's fun. All of the details here. See more great blocks in this blog post.

As the holiday season begins, I wish you time for a few Quilty Pleasures.

In Stitches,

Diane Diane

We're in the final days of Quiltmaker's Treasure Hunt. Visit sponsors' websites and find the Treasure Hunt icon to enter once for each sponsor. Review the Treasure Hunt blog posts from Oct. 3 to Nov. 1 if you need clues for any particular sponsor. Don't forget there is no Treasure Hunt button on the Quiltmaker site.

We're thrilled with two grand prizes this year. Handi Quilter will award a Sweet Sixteen sitdown longarm quilting machine, and PFAFF will award a quilt expression 4.0 sewing machine.

Block Party in Portland
Gudrun Erla will teach at Quiltmaker's Block Party in Portland March 20–23. Why don't you put this event on your Christmas list? There will be sewing, learning, friendship and fun! What a great way to start off the spring and get your creative juices flowing. And payment plans are available—sew very easy!

How about Gudrun's Easy Hex quilt class? Here's how she describes it:

The Easy Hex quilt is made using a 60 degree triangle ruler. The quilt has two versions, the split and the scrambled version. Choose from a few different sizes of each version. In class we will learn the construction of the triangle blocks into hexagons, cutting with the triangle ruler and choosing your layouts. Quilt is Fat Quarter Friendly and appropriate for experienced beginners and intermediate skill level.
