My Tested Blocks
My group tested 13 of the 100 Blocks and I was able to test 2 extra 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).
I only tested one of the blocks from today’s Designers.
Pan Vieira McGinnis – Block #812 – Summer’s Bouquet (appliqué)
Pam created an appliqué block which made me think of summer as I tested it during this past winter.
My version is done with fusible applique. I will add some machine stitching later.
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 #9.
Join me tomorrow and I’ll share more of the blocks I’ve made.
