Quiltmaker's Blog Tour and Giveaway!

1

I was so thrilled to have my block chosen to be a part of Quiltmaker's 100 blocks volume 5 magazine edition. So exciting! Today is my day of the blog tour - be sure to check out the tour for the chance to win a copy of the magazine.  You will have your chance to win 1 of 3 copies here, so read on!

2

I snapped a quick picture of my original block way back when, so sorry about the picture background - had I thought about it, I would have gotten a better picture. Anyway - my block is called Road Block - it has a lot of piecing in it, but it is so fun to put together! 

3

I was so surprised to see my block and my name - or at least Green Fairy Quilts on the cover. What an honor! You can find my block and instructions on how to make it on page 64 of the magazine.

4

Here is another version of my block that I pieced this last week - I had this idea of a bright, rainbow type quilt and I think it turned out fun. 

5

Here's the block in a simple row by row setting. I think I like it!

6

Then, this crazy idea came to me to make a bigger block - so, I doubled the size of my original 12 inch block to get a finished 24 inch block. Then, I added some borders. I am so happy with how this block turned out. 
It was funny as I searched through my stash of fabric to make these sample blocks only to realize that I pretty much gave everything in my fabric stash to my mother - I hope she's happy - so I had to run to the quilt store for some fabric.  This fabric line screamed at me as I walked by, so I bought some yardage of each piece in the line they carried.  The line is called "Bright Owl" by Alice Kennedy for Timeless Treasures Fabrics. 

7

Being the super optimist, I figured I would get 3 different bigger blocks to show you, but wouldn't you know it - I didn't get to the third one. In the meantime, I realized that I just need to make 6 of these blocks to get a super cute quilt. So, that's what I am going to do, eventually!

8

Here's the rest of the blocks all cut up and ready to go. I can't wait to finish this quilt, but I have some quilting to get done first. 

So, how about a giveaway?  Quiltmaker is giving away 1 copy of the magazine to my readers and I am throwing in 2 extra copies.  So, just leave me a comment telling me what project you are working on.   Simple as that! Good luck!

Congratulations Judi! I love your block,and your blog. :D Your quilts have inspired me to learn to machine quilt. I'm learning to stipple on 2 baby quilts right now. My sewing machine's throat is only 6" wide, so this process is very challenging for me. The recipients of the quilts may look at them and say, that's ok, you can keep it. LOL, but we all have to start somewhere.....right?

It seems that it's the ending of winter/spring sessions with my son's activities, so for the past 2 weeks, it's been a different chauffeur schedule. It should slow down here shortly, so I can get bigger chunks at the sewing machine and cutting table, but until then....I grab and go! Thank you for participating in the blog hop, and congrats again!

What a great block. Congratulations on being in this next 100 Blocks Issue 5. How fun and exciting too.

Right now I am playing catchup with other things after some family things took us away from the house for a few days. Once done I will be working on making lots of baby things for my Granddaughter who is 2 1/2 months old. I have blankets, burp cloths, bibs, and hopefully a quilt to get done for her in the next couple of weeks.

Sandra said...

If by some chance and I have luck on my side and win a copy of this creative magazine, I want to make Road Block quilt. It is darn cute. After you see all of the blocks and all the layouts, you get into the quilting mood and want to make all of them. This is good. Since this is pieced, I know I can make this quilt and be so excited with the end result. I can do this. Thank you for giving us all a chance to win.

Jeanne said...

Yesterday I just finished a HUGE king quilt that is Civil war fabrics and lots of details in the piecing (fancy back too) and today I am going through my stash trying to decide what to work on next. This is the fun part for me...finding a new project! I can't decide. I have too many projects to choose from. I have so many that I have already cut out and ready to be sewn and others with patterns and fabric all together and I am overwhelmed by it all. But by the end of the day I will choose one to work on. Thanks for the chance to win to win. First time on your blog. I am an avid member of The Quilting Board and read about your blog and your block. I love your block. Even if I don't win, I will buy this magazine just so I can do your block. It looks like it's not too difficult, which is what I like about it. Thanks again, Jeanne

Annie said...

There's so much to like here at your blog - your block, the owl fabric, the idea of doing double-sized blocks, and the intriguing picture/post from April 27! I'm working on two projects: Amish with a Twist BOM, and Craftsy BOM.

Congrats on getting your block in volume 5. I'm working on a wall hanging for me and helping my 18 year old daughter make a t-shirt quilt for her best friend.

Just sew cute!

Kristen said...

Honestly, I am working on testing blocks for Quiltmaker's 100 Blocks Volume 6 right now! It's been keeping me busy and when I'm done there is a wallhanging made from blocks of high heeled shoes from a previous 100 Blocks edition I want to get back to working on!

Congratulations on the cover spot and thanks for the chance to win a copy of Volume 5!

Congratulations on having your block on the cover and in the magazine. I am currently working on a pineapple quilt for my newest granddaughter. I love your block in the solids and the owl fabric. Thanks for the chance to win a copy of volume 5.

What a fabulous block. Congrats!

Diane Wagner said...

I really like your block and the endless design possibilities it presents. Currently I'm working on finishing a baby quilt and binding some placemats. Your block would make great placemats and tablemat.

Great block Judi! I love the little owls in one of your samples you made up. Also congrats on being part of the 100 Blocks magazine!! So exciting!

I'm currently working on catching up with the SOWalong for the Farmer's Wife blocks online. Also another group project BOM with my quilt friends at the HGTV message board. :)

Love from Indiana! ~bonnie

Currently trying to finish making a bedcover (not sure if she wants bedspread or comforter size) for my niece. It it is appliqued blocks with sashes and a wide border on the outside. It's going to look awesome when it's done. The funny thing is, I've just begun quilting the last two years, so I'm still a newbie! Would love to have this particular magazine!

Jenn Scott said...

Congrats on making the magazine and the *cover*! Too many projects in the works over here to be honest. ;) I can lump them all into the "gift" catagory - Mother's day, Birthdays, Weddings, House-Warming, etc, etc, etc.

Malia said...

That's Awesome! I have half of the pieces cut out for Camille Roskelly's Hopscotch pattern. They may have been sitting on my table for the last month. So I just need to finish and actually sew it together...

Congrats on the cover feature! Cute block and great fabric! I'm working on a few UFOs and will be starting something new soon. I have to finish 2 before I start something else. Because I put aside 3 to start 2 new, lol.

I'm trying to work on a printer cover, but I'm not really doing too well on it. Too much work makes me a dull girl. Thank you for a great giveaway! :)

What a fun block! Very original. Just now I am working on some doll quilts using a giant bag of scraps someone gave me!

Well done on getting into this magazine. Your block is very effective with the colorus.

hich project!? Cackles hysterically, I seriously think I have too many projects on the go, so to save your sanity will only choose one project.

A kind friend sent me some material and a dresden plate template, so I've been busy sewing little ties into a large throw to cover my knees this winter. It is fun hand sewing a large piece of material as it keeps me warm while I sew.

BeachQuilter said...

I'm actually making a doll for my granddaughter from a pattern that I bought 30 years ago to make for my daughter! I've updated the dress fabric and will make my granddaughter a matching top!

Jeanne in Ohio said...

Cute block! I'm sewing bonus triangles together for "someday. . . "
