Quilt maker's 100 Blocks Sampler

Have you heard about Quilmaker Magazine's 100 block sampler quilt? You're probably familiar with the Quiltmaker 100 Blocks publication, filled with unique 12" blocks. They've taken 49 previously published blocks and reduced them to 6" finished for a fun sampler quilt.

Each Wednesday they are featuring one of the blocks on their blog, Quilty Pleasures


Today is the day for my block, called Spinwheel which was in the Summer 2013 issue. 

Six inch Sampler quilts are so popular right now. And rightly so - they're fun to make and so pretty. The great thing about this one is that all the blocks are rotary cut!



You can find more about the quilt-along on Quilty Pleasures Blog here and find the pattern and kits here.



Six inch blocks are also so handy to use for adding to small projects. I stitched my smaller block up in Liberty fabric with a linen background and turned it into a zip pouch!
