All this past summer, I had the honor of being a block tester for QuiltMaker’s 100 Blocks, Volume 8.
QuiltMaker is hosting a Blog Tour, featuring a different group of the 100 Blocks designers each day. Be sure to visit them, look at their blocks, and get your chance in to win — not just a copy of the magazine, but also some other great prizes (I heard you could even win fabric bundles)!
Being a tester means that I got to preview several of the blocks up close and personal. Here are a few of the ones I tested that were my favorites.
Several of us testers were also tasked with using our tested blocks to make a quilt, and I knew right away that I wanted to include Bonnie’s block in mine, so that’s just what I did!
You’re gonna wanna have a copy of this issue, because just thumbing through the pages of block patterns is very inspiring. I’m just now getting to see the other 80 or so blocks I didn’t get to preview, and I’m really impressed! It’s a fabulous collection of 100 12″ quilt block patterns by 100 different designers — a great resource to have on hand.
