Spike Ball by Denniele Bohannon for Quiltmaker’s 100 Blocks Volume 10 was highlighted on today’s blog.
I was delighted to test this block. It is a fun mix of traditional and modern look!
Go to the Quilty Pleasure’s Blog to also see Woven Ribbons by Lerlene Nevaril. Love the use of Orange and Blue with a Black Tone-on-Tone background.

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).
Cory’s block not only is on the cover but her block is number 1000! How exciting!! Read her blog to see what part of this block is her favorite and see the block set in a quilt.
My Block – I like pieced blocks and I really like stars, so this was probably one of my favorites. The stars just ‘explode.’
See this block used in a quilt. If you like the quilt, the pattern will be available later this year. The quilt is currently on display in Golden, CO, at the Quiltmaker’s home office. If you are in the area, you could drop in and see it along with many others.
My Block – This was a cute block to make. Although, mostly appliqué it is set off with pieced corners. Can you envision a quilt with a flock of multi-colored chicks?
### – I have one more block I want to share. I haven’t tested it, but I know the Designer personally. Camelia Elliott is a good quilting friend of mine. I have helped her edit her patterns, and we’ve made some tutorial videos together.
