100 Blocks Vol 5 Blog Tour!

***THIS DRAWING IS CLOSED!!***


Whoooowhoooo! It’s here!

This is the day that I get to reveal my block from the latest issue of the 100 blocks series, volume 5 by Quiltmaker Magazine!

I’ve been waiting with great anticipation for this day, because not only is this a great block ---but it’s all reds and neutrals, AND ---it includes STRINGS!

Do you remember just the other day when I said to keep your eye on that Turkey Tracks Block? There was a reason!

This is how my mind works….if a block is too large, ((I have much more fun making 6” blocks than 12” blocks!)) simply add more PIECES to it to make it more interesting.

Blocks with wide open spaces are PERFECT for replacing big chunky pieces with string pieced units ---you can clear out some really fun stuff, and make your blocks more interesting at the same time….and that’s how I came about with my version of the block:

QMMS-120022-HUNTER

Talkin’ Turkey!

I used phone book pages as my foundations and covered squares of the phone book paper with my red strings – pushing the red colorway from orangey red to pinky red and everywhere in between including burgundy. Throw it all in there!

And for those of you who have been following along with me for a while….can you spot the “Lucky Cow” fabric?! It shows up in just about every red scrap quilt I do…..and how about that piece at the top center that has writing on it? I had yardage of this and it never worked well for anything, but I love it cut up. I think it’s only in small strips in my stash anymore, sad to see it go! I also see an old Jinny Beyer piece from the 1980s in there….but --- NO MILLENIUM FABRIC!

Are any of these fabrics STILL in YOUR stash!? Fess up!

talkinturkeysm

Here’s a very simple layout for you ---16 blocks plus sashings, and don’t you love that string border?

But let’s take it one step further shall we?

talkinturkeyfull1

This is a sneak preview of my Talkin’ Turkey quilt as it will appear in my next book due out in July!

30 blocks plus pieced sashings and string borders!

Just love all those reds and neutrals!

The timing couldn’t be better as this is one of the classes I’m teaching at Quiltmaker’s Block Party in Williamsburg, VA in August! We couldn’t show it to you before this point, because it had to come out in the magazine first – and now you know!

    Yes I do have some of that fabric. The one with the little blue flowers on it. I just cut a sunbonnet sue dress from it. Love the quilt block. I will have to try this one since I have lots of red scraps some from orca bay maybe I can make two quilts from your new book before it hits the market. Club show and tell will be great. I better get started soon if I want to beat the book. Enjoy your trip and be safe.

  58. I can't wait for your next book to come out, but I would love to win the magazine in the meantime! I'm currently working on a variation of your Texas Braid quilt. I don't have my scraps in the scap user's system yet so cutting 1100 bricks and 550 squares from the scrap box took quite some time...I'm going to make it a habit of cutting my leftover fabrics into useable units from now on. You've taught me a very good lesson! Thanks again!

  151. Just love this block, Bonnie! Of course I prefer scrappy over anything else. And I really like your setting and borders - all spikey in the borders to match the spikey looking turkey track block! Of course I would like my name entered into the drawing too ;-)
