100 Blocks Blog Tour and Giveaway!


Welcome to my stop on Quiltmaker's 100 Blocks vol. 6 Blog Tour!

My block is #583 Lattice. The fabrics are from Amy Butler's Lark collection. I love how the black print square seems to float.


The magazine editors did a great mock-up of a quilt with the block set on point.


My quilt uses 2" finished sashing to connect the blocks. I used a strip in the center of each sashing unit to connect the blocks. Did you notice I made one block in red for a pop?




 The magazine is filled tons of inspiration and more awesome blocks! It'll be released on November 13th!  How about a free copy? I've got one to give away - leave a comment and I'll pick a name on Monday morning November 12th!

For even more prizes and the complete list of bloggers on the hop head over to Quilty Pleasures Blog! Hope you win!!    . . . Cindy
