Quiltmaker's 100 Block Collector's Edition Vol. 5

I WON!  Quiltmaker's magazine had a 5 day blog tour of their 100 Blocks Vol. 5 collectors edition. The blog tour was the first week in May so all the giveaways are closed. However, you can start here with day one to check out the designers that participated in the tour. Be sure to look at all 5 days! Wait, I'll make it easier for you, day 2, day 3, day 4, day 5!

I so enjoyed following the tour and learning how the designers came up with the block name or the design. Some gave tips and had lots of pictures showing the blocks in various colorways, and layout setting options.

Quiltmaker's and the designers were giving away the Vol. 5 edition if you left a comment on their post. Sherri at A Quilting Life drew MY name/comment!! Sherri's awesome block is #484, Summer Garden Dream, and is found on page 65.

The magazine is available now, so be sure to pick up a copy you will definitely be inspired. All the blocks finish at 12 inches. There are applique blocks, foundation pieced blocks, mixed technique blocks and pieced blocks, something for everyone! There's also a designer and a tester gallery of photos. Of course there is a pattern pull out section found in the center of the magazine!

Thanks so much for stopping by! I'm off to read, look through, try to decide which one to make first!
