What do you get when you mix together a new magazine and a carefully collected group of fabrics??
A new quilt project!
And what better way to start the New Year, than to start a new quilt?!?
In my Christmas stocking Santa gave me this Quiltmaker's magazine called 100 blocks. Over the holidays I have been looking at the blocks and thinking about making a block sampler. I really enjoy cutting out little pieces and fussing around to make complex blocks, so this was perfect for me. I was a little disappointed with the number of applique block patterns vs pieced in the magazine, but some of them are quite nice and I may be tempted to try 1 or 2!
So the idea was born to start a weekly "Saturday Sampler" blogpost.
Now what fabric to use?
Pattern: Quiltmaker magazine "100 blocks" p.39
Block Designer: Bonnie Mitchell
Directions were perfect and the block measures 12 1/2"!
I have been looking on the internet for more block patterns and have found several great sites that have run previous or current BOM's. Here are some of the sites I've found:
3 Creative Studios
With Heart and Hands
Friday Block Party
If you have other BOM sites you recommend, please leave me a comment, since I've only collected enough patterns for about 1000 quilts so far LOL!
