Once again, I'm so happy to be a part of Quiltmaker's 100 Blocks! I've been in 5 issues now and on the cover for the second time in this issue! Do you see it?
Well it might help to actually to show you the block so you can find it!
|Crossing the Circles|
I love this block! It's actually 4 - 6" blocks put together to make 1 - 12" block. I'm so in love with solids and deep, saturated colors! And of course I have to work in shades of gray in almost every quilt I make! It's a very simple block to make. You just appliqué the center circle and slice and add strips of gray. For full instructions, go to page 36 of Vol. 10. I can see a full quilt made of this block, or a border, or set alternated with plain squares of solid color. Almost anything goes with this block!
And now for the giveaway! One lucky quilter will receive a copy of Quiltmaker's 100 Blocks, Vol. 10. Just leave a message telling me your favorite block (sorry, no bonus points for picking mine, but I'll be flattered!). I'll pick a winner early next week. Then, head to Quilty Pleasures, Quiltmaker's blog for more chances to win! Good luck!
