Let's Go to the Hop!

My coffee tastes extra delicious today in my Quiltmaker 100 Blocks Volume 5 mug!

extra delicious

Welcome to my day on the blog tour! I'm so excited to be included with so many great blocks and amazing quilters in this magazine!

Quiltmaker 100 blocks vol 5

My block is inspired by great California weather,cool breezes, sunshine, blue oceans, big puffy white clouds. We're pretty lucky here!

summerbreeze

I'm pretty lucky myself, with my block in the magazine and a new line of fabric coming out! This little runner is "made" from the Pam Kitty Love! I can't wait to actually stitch it up this fall when my fabric arrives.

If you feel lucky too, leave a comment to win a copy of the Quiltmaker 100 Blocks Magazine! And be sure to hop on over to Quiltmaker's Quilty Pleasures Blog and see all the people on the list!  I will be picking a winner on Friday!

I love your block, especially with the three blocks together make it appear that the pink squares wrap around the "posts". It really gives it depth, like weaving ribbon.
