Quiltmaker's 100 Blocks

Just a real quick note. The new collector's edition of Quiltmaker's 100 Blocks volume 2 will be on the newstands soon and I have a block in it! It is even on the cover! You can see more information at Quiltmaker's website.

http://www.quiltmaker.com/100blocks

My block is the curved one in black
and cream hoffman batiks. It is based on my quilt Nouveau Riche
for Hoffman's website. The original block was 8" and I combined four 6" blocks to create a 12" block. It is a soft gentle curve easy to piece.


I carry the templates for both the 8" and the 6" blocks on my website.  My blog tour date is Nov. 8. So come back on the 8th, leave a comment and be eligible for a free magazine or template of your choice. You can also be eligible for prizes from Quiltmaker if you start at their website and complete the week long blog tour.

Hope to see you back here on the 8th. Remember, always do what you love and love what you do. Toby

Toby I love your block and actually loved is so that I made my quilt top immediately after purchasing the kit and templates from you. It's now waiting in the "to be quilted" pile but is very near the top. I enjoyed the curves piecing so much that I then made a drunkard's path top with my fabric strings. Congratulations in being included in the mag!

I've just started attempting a few curves...I'm getting over the fear.

Your curvy quilt is such a refreshing change from what I usually gravitate to. I would love to win a copy of this magazine and make your quilt for a son's girlfriend. Her style is more contemporary than mine and I think she would really like your quilt.

I love your block. I am so into curves and circles right now.

While I love the curves I have yet to try to make them, maybe this is the kick I need to at least try, I would love to have a copy of the magazine

These curved blocks are perfect for the holidays as they remind me of beautiful Christmas tree ornaments or garland. I can also see them as beautiful Easter eggs. I definitely want to try curves now!
