Welcome to the Quiltmaker: Quilts from 100 blocks Kickoff event.
They are celebrating the release of the first issue of this magazine where you will find quilts using the blocks from the best selling 100 blocks publication.
I am so fortunate to have a quilt called Fiery Flower in this collector's issue and it even made the cover!!
The block that I used for the quilt will be in the next 100 blocks issue, vol 6 and is called Fire Burst.
When I was designing the block and quilt, I was in the midst of working on my new book Big Blocks - Big Style which has quilts made with blocks that are bigger than 12". Since all the blocks in the Quiltmaker 100 blocks are 12" finished, I knew Iwanted to keep going with the "Big Block" theme and design a block that could be combined to create a larger design.
The center is put together with 4 blocks and sashing and then the blocks are repeated in groups of 3 in the first border around the center.
Then I added four blocks in the corners of the quilt to tie it all together.
The fabrics used in the quilt are from my Reflections collection with Red Rooster Fabrics. It is available in quilt shops now. I loved to play with just the reds, greys and a touch of yellow. It makes a striking combination full of contrast.
This is a great issue with 19 great quilts in it, and you can win your very own copy! Just add a comment to this post and one lucky reader will get a free magazine.
