Quiltmaker Blog Tour and Giveaway: 100 Blocks Vol. 12

Hello!

Welcome to my stop on the Quiltmaker 100 Blocks Volume 12 blog tour and giveaway!

If this is your first time here, I hope you'll have a look around and come back to visit sometime. :) If you've been here before, welcome back!


This is my block called "You've Got Mail", after one of my favorite romantic comedies. :) It's in the pieced category. I used my trusty Triangles on a Roll 1" finished HST paper to make the tiny HSTs. They are the only way I get close to perfect points on pieces that small. I am a perfect point challenged person. :) 




I have had a crush on punctuation for years now and once made an entire quilt out of various punctuation marks for my nephew. It was a trial and error process for that quilt, and since then, I've been enjoying refining and shrinking some of those blocks down to 12" blocks.


This was a previous entry I did for Quiltmaker 100 blocks Vol. 10.


I thought it would be fun to put the ampersand block and the "@" block (does that thing have a name?) both into a quilt together. 


I also think it'd make a great pillow with a modern feel.  I love the text print background for these blocks, but I also love anything in polka dots. :)
I hope if you try it you'll send me a photo, I'd love to see!

Now onto the giveaway!  There are three prizes up for grabs.  

A $30 gift certificate from Winter Creek Cloth, a great online fabric shop based in Oregon:


A $30 gift certificate from Mad About Patchwork, a great online AND brick and mortar shop based in Ontario, Canada:


A copy of Quiltmaker 100 Blocks, sent to you from Quiltmaker Magazine in Golden, Colorado:


To enter, just leave me a comment letting me know where you're from. :) For extra entries, leave separate comments letting me know if you're a blog/IG/twitter etc. follower. One comment for each extra entry. Extra entries are totally optional and unnecessary, but I would love for you to follow along if you'd like.  I love to make new blog friends. :) (I have met two of my very best quilty friends through blog hops like this.) :)

Thanks for stopping in to visit, and thanks to Quiltmaker for sponsoring this tour, and including me. Happy hopping! Good luck in all of the drawings, and don't forget to visit all of the other stops on the tour this week! :)

P.S. If you happen to not win a copy of the magazine, but would like to get your hands on one and can't find it locally, they are available (digital and hard copy) by clicking on the Quilt and Sew Shop tab in the left sidebar or by clicking here.

xoxo

Cute quilt. I have always heard that button called the "AT" button, as in @gmail, etc. At least, that is what it is called in California, where I am from.

I'm a traditionalist at heart but I could definitely see this as a pillow for my niece. She made her first quilt this year and I think she would be inspired by he modern fabrics and designs today. Also would be great for a college student studying computers or English to a teenage textaholic!
