Quiltmakers 100 Blocks, Vol. 5

Volume 5 of Quiltmakers 100 Blocks may already be on the newsstands in your area!  And the blog tour begins on Monday - don't miss out on the chances to win free magazines & other prizes.  Go to to follow the fun! 

My block is Iowa Lily on page 36; I'll be blogging on
Tuesday, May 1.  Happy May Basket Day!

It's such fun to go to fabric groupings for a block such as Iowa Lily.  It makes it so easy; you can choose different ones
from the grouping for parts of the block, then a different one for flowers, stems, leaves, etc.  I especially love to put
 many, many fabrics into one block - makes it fun for me! 
 This time I used a fabric grouping that was a stretch for me - it's brighter & cheerier, although still in the Civil War era.

Quiltmakers 100 Blocks, Vol. 5 coming soon!

Excitement!  They liked my new block - Iowa Lily!  If you have been following the Quiltmakers Magazine 100 Blocks for the last few years, you certainly have a treasury of new blocks by now.   It's always so fun to see how many designers there actually are out there - it's lots!

And, of course, there is a blog tour every time a new magazine comes out & this time, I'm ready.  Last time I did not have a blog & I really felt that I missed out.  So my day to blog is Tuesday, May 1!  You'll find all the information you need for the tour at

We'll be giving lots of prizes, copies of the magazine, & fun just around the corner.  So, get ready!!
