My Tested Blocks

My group tested 13 of the 100 Blocks.  We randomly received patterns and didn’t know (and had no choice) as to which techniques we would be testing.  All Blocks finish to 12” square (12-1/2” unfinished).

Jennifer Oden – Block #792 – Ruffled Feathers (Pieced)

This Block is previewed in Today’s Quilty Pleasures Blog and is made in shades of orange.

My version of this Block is in Purples!

I made blocks from 2 of the listed Featured Designers.

Jo and Kelly Kramer – Block #788 – Sailor’s Delight (Pieced)

Jo’s favorite colors are red and blue and you will notice that she uses these to create a Patriotic star block.  On her Blog and featured in Quiltmaker’s 100 Blocks Volume #8 is a quilt made of her block, Sailor’s Delight!

I made mine in similar colors, but a bit more whimsical!

For those of you that follow me, this was one of the blocks I tested shortly after my Rotator Cuff surgery!  I had limited movement and strength, so I had the help of a wonderful friend who supplied me with the cut fabric pieces so I could stitch up this block.  Quilter Friends are the BEST!  Thanks, Prue!

Anne Marie Chany – Block #773 – Waffle (Pieced)

I actually made two of these blocks, the first one was tested in March and my mind was thinking “Easter” fabric, but than I realized  the issue would be published in the fall, so I changed my fabric to browns and dog bones!

Here’s the first block I made.  I did some fussy cutting for the corner squares.

This was a fun block!  It does have a number of HST (Half-Square Triangles).

 There are more blocks to share, but for now, go check out the Featured Designers.  Maybe you’ll find a block you might want to make!  Sign up on their Blogs and you may win a copy of Quiltmaker’s 100 Blocks, Volume #8.

Join me tomorrow and I’ll share more of the blocks I’ve made.
