It’s a Quiltmaker Blog Tour! ((And a Give-Away!))


I’ve been waiting and waiting and waiting for my turn to post! IT’S TIME!

This is my second issue as a designer for Quiltmaker’s 100 blocks by 100 designers magazine. I missed the first one. I had too many irons in the fire, and who knew what a big thing it was going to turn out to be!

I loved the excitement that built last time, so there was no way I was going to miss this issue, or the next, or the next or the next!

My block in Vol 3 is #279. It’s found on page 65 and is called Winston Ways. ((I am a Winston Salem, NC girl, after all!))

I really love blocks that create secondary designs, and this one was made to be set block to block to block with no sashings in between as the opposing checkerboard corners will join together and fit light to dark! ((This is also something you have to pay attention to when you are sewing your blocks….the corners are opposite of each other!))

I dug into my bins of pre-cut strips for the checkerboards, pulling out red and neutrals --you know how I love my pre-cut scrap bins, all ready for me to sew in usable sizes!

I did use scrap strips and the easy angle ruler for the 1/2 square triangles, but you can use any method that gives you the size of triangles required.

The white cats on black background are my tribute to Oscar, who I lost last month. He is missed dearly, and I'm happy I used that special fabric there.

And see that stripe next to the star points? That was one of MY own shirts that was re-purposed into my scrap stash when I stopped wearing it. I love how the stripes add motion to the design by twisting and turning different ways.

Here I’ve done a simple straight set of blocks, set 6 X 7 and added two borders, one cut 1.5” to finish at 1”, and the second cut 4.5”

Look at this on point! It also makes an interesting design!

And let me just add, that if this is your first visit to my blog, I'm SO happy that you stopped by! I write a regular column for Quiltmaker called Addicted To Scraps~ Take some time to wander around the blog, there are free pattern links at the top, some recipes, and other goodies for you to discover.

Don't forget to wander over to my Website, Quiltville.com for more Scrappy Quilt Goodness!

I am also busy on facebook! I love being connected to quilters around the globe, and you can find the facebook widget in my right hand side bar ===> Simply click LIKE and you'll be kept up to date with all my doings!

You can also find the "Google Friend Connect" button as well, so you won't miss a post!

In conjunction with this blog tour, We are giving away 2 copies of “100 Blocks, Vol 3!”

One will be mailed directly from Quiltmaker, and one will be signed by yours truly and mailed to you from me!

Leave your comment at the bottom of this post and a winner will be drawn at the end of the blog tour, the morning of May 7th. Please be SURE to include your email address with your post. If you sign in as “anonymous” there will be no way to track you down unless you sign your post with your name and email address!

    Your block is great and such a loving tribute to your late cat. I have a cat who has such a hold on my heart so understand where you are coming from. Would love to win the book.

    Thanks for the chance to win magazine with your new Winston Girl block. I have been a faithful reader and scrap system saver of fabric! I would really enjoy the new block to eliminate some of my scrap fabric! Thanks Bonnie for all your inspiration!

  178. My grandmother and mother were both scrap quilter, but once I found your webpage/blog/facebook, I am a convert. I now have a scrap savers system and use leaders and enders all the time. At a recent retreat I was taking the small scraps that everyone else was throwing away...I have a very small tumbler planned for them. Love your stuff. Keep up the good work.
