Quiltmaker's 100 Blocks volume 10!




Winners!
The lucky winners for the free copy of Quiltmaker's 100 Blocks volume 10 are;
From my Blog -Debbie of WoolenSails.
From FatCat's Facebook - Debbie Elgart

Please contact me with your mailing address.


I was both surprised and delighted to be accepted into volume 10! You will find my block "Blessings" on page 24, block # 913. Please be sure to visit the Quiltmaker site for daily chances to win some cool prizes.
Here she is! I wanted a simple applique that could be used for both old and young alike. I can imagine Blessings on baby quilts, quilts for Angel enthusiast, or on a Prayer quilt for a friend coping with cancer.
Blessings was designed using Electric Quilt

I cannot say enough good about the program. It is a delight to use. I had a lot of fun playing around with different fabric choices. Of course my quilt isn't completely finished yet, that won't stop me from sharing a picture though. Please excuse my basting pins!

I love this angel - not much on applique but I just might have to try it! Christmas or holiday appliques might be nice.....

Lee Ann L. said...

What a cute angel! How about a Minion? I adore Minions. Or any Doctor Who character!

Seriously though, you probably cannot make those for sale because they're trademarked? Or is that copyrighted?

Anyway, I adore cats; so, that would be something to see. Wildflowers too. Or, even more angels. :-)

I am not that good in applique. So, how about a educational tutorial for those of us that don't quite have the ability to do applique? Your block is just so precious. Thank you for being a part of this fun Blog Tour and the chance to win a copy of this fantastic collector's magazine.
