Here's a peek at the cover of the magazine. I have a copy of this in my hot little hands, and it is just fantastic! There is such a great variety of blocks to make, and it is exciting to see all the designer's creative minds at work.
How did I come to be a part of Quiltmaker's 100 Blocks? I started out as a block tester for 100 Blocks, Volume 3. While testing blocks I was inspired to submit a block of my own, and voila! It was accepted for Volume 4. I also tested 14 blocks for the Volume 4 issue. I will be showing my versions of those in a later post, when the issue arrives on newstands, November 15th.
In My Garden
Here's my block, In My Garden. So cute! I did find a turtle in my garden this summer. The boys gave it a good examination, and put it gently in the woods. The pieces are all fusible appliqued and edged with a tiny zig-zag stitch.

I also made a small wall hanging with my block. I love the way the stripey border looks like the woods at the edge of my garden. The four patch blocks in the corner remind my of a checkered racing flag. Perfect for my speedy turtle!
