Quiltmaker's 100 Blocks!

Hi there !!! Welcome to Day 5 of the Quiltmaker's 100 Blocks blog tour!  I'm very excited to be included in Volume 11!   I'm so happy to be one of a handful of people who have been included in all magazines! 

QMMS-150044-cover_200_66012
 
My block was inspired by this cute vintage canister I saw on vacation.  Love everything about it, the cute heart shaped leaves, simple posy shape and the little scallop border it's sitting on!

I love the simple vintage style, and I feel like I captured that in my block!  I can just see this little pot of flowers sitting on the window sill of an little old cottage!

Love your block. Reminds me of the Geraniums my mother used to keep on our kitchen windowsill. Congratulations Pam!!
Our little hamlet didn't even have 1 store with this magazine when I went looking for it almost a year ago. I guess after thoroughly searching and asking at many stores that carry other magazines - I now see it making an appearance :)! I'll have to check it out!
