Quiltmaker's 100 Blocks, Volume 7, Blog Tour!


Hello!  Welcome to my little corner of the Quiltmaker's 100 Blocks Blog Tour for Volume 7.  I'm so excited to be kicking off the tour on the very first day.  Woo-Hoo!  Thank you, Quiltmaker.  You're the best.


Here's my block for this issue, it's called Summer's End.  It's block #609 in the magazine.  This time around I experimented with some soft flannels on a creamy cotton background.   I really enjoyed working with the flannel fabrics.  They handled beautifully.  Because my block is a little dark, (like the end of Summer) I thought I would show how it would look in a few different colorways.


This is the Summer's End, Winter version!  All cool, icy blues.  The stems are a light brown, and the leaves have a frosted look to them.  These are some stubborn flowers to still be blooming in the chilly weather.


This is the Summer's End, Spring version.  All is bright and brand new, with pretty pink flowers and fresh greens.  I used the snowflake background because it was an unusually cold Spring this year.


And this is the Autumn version of Summer's End.  I kept the daisy type flower in the pinks because I wanted to show how it looks when bright colors pop against a dark background.  I love this look in applique.  Also, note the busy fabric I used for the stems.  It really adds some pizazz to the block.


This is the Summer's End quilt I made using four of my blocks,  This was a fun little quilt to sew.  I love the sawtooth setting and the brightness the turquoise blocks add to the overall look.  The different shades of orange have been speaking to me lately; it really gave me a sense of peace to use them in this quilt.


Thanks so much for visiting my blog today.  And now for the giveaway!
I will be giving away one copy of Quiltmaker's 100 Blocks, Volume 7...


And one of my latest in the popular Basket Cats series of patterns, "Lady of the Lake Cat".

To enter, simply leave me a comment letting me know what season is your personal favorite.  I'll draw a winner on May 4th.  Good luck!

    fresh smell of flowers. I really like the block.

    ReplyDelete
  23. Ooh what a great block. I relaly love flowers. Sping is probably my most favorite season. I look forward to everything around the yard becomming green again and the smell of my very large lilac bushes being in bloom. Plus that icky snow is gone too. Of course, this year winter doesn't seem to want to leave. We just had snow/sleet less than a week ago, but thankfully this time of the year it still melts fairly quickly so that's good.

    ReplyDelete

  54. Autumn is my very favorite. I had 4 seasons for the first 7 years of my life. I spent the next 45 years in Florida and longed for fall. When we retired, our number one criteria was a place that had all four seasons. Now, we have fall EVERY year in the Southern Appalachian Mountains. Paradise!

    ReplyDelete

    Spring is my favorite season- the colors and life beginning again!

  59. Spring is my favorite! I love when the bluebonnets start blooming all over Texas!

    ReplyDelete
  60. I love them all... but I'd say fall is my slight favorite. Love the fall colors and the "nesting" instinct to get ready for winter.

    ReplyDelete
  61. Pretty block! My favorite season is Spring. Thanks for the chance to win.

    ReplyDelete
  62. I like that your block can be used for all four seasons. I can imagine choosing my favorite blooms from each season and incorporating the look of each in a block. I can never decide if my favorite season is spring or fall. I think it depends on how extreme the preceding winter or summer has been!

    ReplyDelete
  63. I like the Spring version. After all, yet another storm is heading to us and we are about into May! Really cute block!

    ReplyDelete
  64. Pretty block in all colors. I love your fabric choices in the spring sample.

    ReplyDelete
  72. I love your block! My favorite season is fall. I love the color changing of the leaves and the crisp, cool air. Spring is a close second, though, when everything starts turning green and the flowers start to bloom.

    ReplyDelete

  77. Beautiful block, I love summer the most because of the warm sunshine, but most often when I want to do a block or quilt it always has snowmen.

    ReplyDelete
  78. Hi I really like the brightness of the spring version but I like the additional touch of using the snowflake material because easter and spring here in England was snowy! I would love to make something using all 4 seasons together too I think that would make a great floor cushion.

    ReplyDelete

  100. It's amazing how different a block can look with different fabrics. Thanks for your contribution.

    ReplyDelete
  101. Jennifer-Love your cat blocks as I have 3 feline helpers. My little black feline rescue Bombay 'helps' me by pulling out the pins on my projects with her teeth, so I have to be careful and hide them. Our other two rescue Tabbies, gray with white tuxedo and orange, are "laid back" males who keep our lives in retirement interesting as they are alway "up to something!" Thanks for the opportunity to win some great inspiration.

    ReplyDelete
  106. gotta be spring! Love your block

    ReplyDelete
  107. Jennifer-My favorite season is summer because that's the time of the year when my allergies bother me the least. Gus, Ben, Tabitha and I love your cat blocks. These three rescue kitties keep our retired life interesting. Our little black female Bombay likes to pull the pins out of my projects with her teeth, so I have to hide my work from her and of course, they all have to approve of any work that I do! The tabbies are much more "laid back," except Gus who seems to have an affinity for thread as he as removed the hems from all my living room and bedroom drapes. It's time for them to go anyway, but will be replacing the window coverings with something other than drapes! Thanks for the opportunity to win some great inspiration.

  108. Don't know what happened to my comments as this is the third time I've typed things in and it doesn't seem to "publish"

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  117. Spring gardening is my favorite season...right after I get over my usual welcome spring hay fever/cold! Love the block ;)

    ReplyDelete
  118. Fall has always been my favorite - summer winding down, days getting crisp, and pumpkins everywhere!

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  129. It's hard to choose one season because I love autumn and winter, as well as spring. We are having a beautiful spring this year. The only time of year I don't like is the summer when it's hazy, hot and humid. But a beautiful summer day can't be beat.

    ReplyDelete
  130. Favorite season is Spring when the outside puts on a show of all the different colors of flowers. Love the block as I do love to applique.

    ReplyDelete
  137. My favorite season is spring...all the new life and, of course, new mulch!

  138. My favorite season is Summer. Always has been and always will be. So many good memories of childhood summers. Love your block too. In every color!

    ReplyDelete
  139. Springtime is my favorite. It may have something to do with living in North Georgia, most of the time we have just a couple of weeks of spring then it's head first into summer.

  148. What a graceful block! So pretty. With the alternate colors shown, it could be a 4 seasons quilt or hanging. My favorite season is Spring--everything smells so fresh, the heat is off, the doors/windows are open, and the temperature is not extreme. And, you've got to love all that green--though not the pollen.

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete

  169. I love spring and fall. Spring would be my all time favorite season if it weren't for the heavy pollen we get in our area. The temps of spring and fall are so pleasureable to get out and about. Great block! I am collecting blocks and ideas for a garden quilt and yours will be in my collection for sure.

    ReplyDelete

  187. For most of my life I would have said Summer was my favorite season, but now that I'm getting older, I think I appreciate Fall more. Not quite so hot and still stays light out longer. Thanks for the chance!
