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!

talkin-turkey 001

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!

quiltmaker 005

Would you like to win a copy of Quiltmaker’s 100 Blocks, Vol 5? Simply leave me a comment below! You have THREE CHANCES to win from commenting on my blog – I’ll be picking 3 winners! 2 will get signed copies from me, and a lucky 3rd winner will have their copy sent direct to them from Quiltmaker Magazine!

And please spread the word on this drawing to wherever quilters gather, be it your email lists, message boards, facebook ---this is a GREAT giveaway!

Aileen said...

I love the talking turkey. I am Crazy for the pieced border. I really adds movement! I remember you being a a quilt store with what looked like a 10 yards, pieced piano keys of reds! Did that go into this quilt?

Gwynette in NW Arkansas said...

Red and neutrals...... My favorite color combination and of course you figured out a way to make the Turkey Tracks block better!! I'm enjoying riding along on your New York trip!

Vivian said...

Fingers crossed re: this newest issue of the 100 Blocks. They're great fun. I'm often pulling out the other 4 issues, looking for one kind of inspiration or another.
Love your new block, Bonnie. It's nice to see how it looks expanded into an entire quilt.

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.

This is a great block. I saw it somewhere as "corner stars" or so, and I felt it to be "empty" despite the number of pieces. Yours is perfect, it doesn't have the effect of "missing something" :)))

Heather said...

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!

It's so pretty and I can't wait to see what else is in the book! I am working hard to shrink my carbon footprint, so I love the phone book idea. We get way too many yellow pages and What a wonderful way to use them and reduce my stash at the same time. Thanks!!

I sooooo love red and neutral. this quilt is definitely on my list to do as soon as your book comes out, or if I win a copy of the 100 blocks book first!! I love how you take a basic traditional block and make it so yours.

I've been in my studio this morning, testing out a block for Volume 6 - the NEXT volume. Can't wait to get Volume 5 and a fresh cup (or two) of coffee.
