Love to Boston and a giveaway...


My contribution to the Boston Modern Quilt Guild's Quilts For Boston campaign is this block, called "Heart All Around". It's found in the latest (vol. 7) Quiltmaker's 100 Blocks magazine, block #688. 


The Vancouver Modern Quilt Guild is also collecting banners to be displayed in Boston Memorial Day weekend. For more information visit: To Boston With Love.


I was honored again to have my block included in Vol. 7 of Quiltmaker's 100 Blocks. I decided not to participate in the blog hop this time as the timing coincided with the new grandson. But I would like to give away my extra copy - so if you'd like it, please leave a comment and I'll pick a winner on Monday! (US only)


My block is #675, "Spinwheel". There's a mock-up of the blocks set together in the magazine and it looks awesome. I think it would be great very scrappy! You could even use leftover triangle cutoffs!


Also whipped up this week - a tooth pillow - yup! she has her first wiggly tooth!



And I totally fell for the Steam Punk quilt along. I love this retro-looking block and have pulled some funky, retro inspired fabrics!


 That's it for today! Don't forget the giveaway!  . . . Cindy

  5. Such great blocks and the flag turned out perfect too. Your spinwheel pattern has my "wheels spinning" :) I have lots of little triangles lying around after the X Plus along so they should be a perfect fit.
