Featured on today’s QuiltMaker’s Blog:

Chris Hoover’s Block from Volume #10 is titled Above and Beyond and is done in white, yellow and teal blue hues.

I was given Chris’ block to test.  See the little 4-Patches?  They’ll make a chain effect if the block is used to make a whole quilt without sashing. I really like the pinwheel within a star!

Today’s Featured Designers:

Please follow the instructions on their posts to be entered in their giveaways.

Note: *** indicate the blocks that I tested

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).

I tested only one block from today’s Featured Designers.

Pat Harrison – Block #904 – Tulip Flurry (Appliqué)

Pat designs in EQ and even teaches it.  Electric Quilt Software allows a designer to design a block/quilt and insert fabric or colors to see how the completed block/quilt will look.  On her blog, Pat shows two quilts using her block as a center medallion.  She also has a quilt featured in Volume #10 on page 14.

 Here is my tested block.  It is all appliqué.

  2. I love the colors in Chris’ block and bet the four patches throughout the quilt are striking. Pat’s block was probably a little more challenging but it is beautiful. Great job Miss Usability Tester!

      Testing for QM’s 100 Blocks has been a great learning experience. I’m less afraid of applique than I was at the beginning. I keep telling myself it’s like Kindergarten – cutting out paper dolls and working jigsaw puzzles. Thankful for fusible!! LOL!!
