Quiltmaker’s 100 Blocks Vol. 12–Blog Tour, Day #2

QM1550-COVER-200pxWelcome to Day #2 of the Fall Blog Tour for Quiltmaker’s 100 Blocks, Volume #12.  Today is the official release of this magazine.  It is available online in both the print and digital editions.  Check with your local fabric shop or newsstand to pick one up.

All this week, Designers and their blocks will be featured on the Quilty Pleasures Blog.  New this year, you will also find some Tips and a free Bitty Block.



Day #2 Blog Tour Tip: What thread spindle do you use on your machine?  Did you know it makes a difference?  Spools of thread are wound two different ways and work best if used on the correct spindle – horizontal or vertical.  Check out this tip on the Blog Tour this morning.

My Tested Blocks –

Lorna McMahon – Block #1188 – Santa’s Reindeer (Pieced)

Here is a cute pieced block that you can create for your holiday decorations.  See the door banner that Lorna created.

Here is the whimsical reindeer block that I made.  It is headed for a special project that I’ll share later.

  Jennifer Ofenstein – Block #1125 – Special Delivery (Paper Pieced)

Here is another cute block for the holiday season! It goes together very nicely and the added embroidery gives it a special appearance.

I had fun making this block and it is just about time to finish it up to decorate for Christmas.  I have to add the embroidery once I figure out how I want it finished.
