Quiltmakers 100 Blocks - Volume 10

Diamonds Are Forever by Sharon Work
Today is our day to shine!  And to show Sharon's new block "Diamonds Are Forever" !!

You'll find Diamonds Are Forever, Block #999 on page 68 in Volume 10 of Quiltmaker's 100 Blocks .  Don't wait too long to purchase your copy; they do sell out quickly.

Sharon designed with Jo Morton's Amelia fabrics & the Dovetail Batiks II.  Love that black & coral floral; it really makes a statement.

I think it deserves mention that this is the first attempt by Sharon to design a block for 100 Blocks & her block was chosen.  Very exciting for her & me, too, to have her experience & help with Clothesline Quilts pattern company. I appreciate you, Sharon!

So Sharon went on to develop this block into a tablerunner & you can see it on page 10 of the Volume 10 magazine.  She set 3 blocks on point & added pieced setting triangles.  I really like it because you really can't tell where the blocks stop & start.  I like it when you have to search for the block in a quilt & it really works nicely in this tablerunner.

Then I put the block into EQ & played with it so you can see the difference in the two tablerunners. 

Now what do you think??

Make a comment below & get a chance to win prizes like magazines & fat quarters.  I am having fun putting some fat quarter bundles of Jo Morton's fabrics together & you could win one of those.  So leave your comment before midnight tonight & sign up to follow our blog.  You can also go to the website Clothesline Quilts  & sign up for the newsletter!  We'd love to have you join us!
