Quiltmaker's 100 Blocks Blog Tour!

Good morning!!! Welcome to the second day of the Quiltmaker's 100 Blocks Blog Tour!  I'm excited to be included  in this 9th issue of the magazine and my coffee is extra delicious today because of it!

Quiltmaker 100 blocks
 
This issue, like all the others, has great instructions for each block.  There is a designer's gallery that includes the quilts that will hang in the offices in Golden Colorado  for those of us who can't make it to see them.  There's a block tester's gallery for inspiration, full size templates, embroidery stitch instructions, quilting designs   and even a give away! It's a great magazine.

QMMS-140044-cover_200

My block is #812 and is on page 31, Summer's Bouquet.

I even had fun with a photoshopped version in  Pam Kitty Garden.

Pam Kitty Garden Mock Up
 
Quiltmaker is giving away a copy of the magazine  to one of my lucky readers.  Just leave a comment and I'll pick a winner on Friday! Now head over to the Quilty Pleasures Blog and check out all the other block designs on today's tour.   Thanks again to Quiltmaker for including me in this great publication!
