Quiltmaker's 100 Blocks Volume 13 Tour

Hello all and welcome to The Quilting Queen Online and Quiltmaker's 100 Blocks Volume 13 Blog Tour.  If this is your first time here, Welcome.  I hope you check out what's going on at the Quilting Queen Online.  Right now posts are a little sporadic during our transition of purchasing a house and bringing it life for a Quilting Retreat near San Antonio TX.  You can read about it at The Queen's Rustic Retreat and/or follow the progress here. If you're a faithful reader, welcome back!

My block is such a simple block, I didn't even think it would stand a chance to be featured in the Magazine this time.  It features two of my all time favorites, a nine patch block and a churn dash block all rolled up into one.


You can find it on page 55 in Quiltmaker's 100 Blocks Volume 13 Issue.  It is block #1291.


But despite the simplicity of the block, there are so many possibilities!  

Flip the strip set blocks...


Flip the corner half square triangle blocks


Flip the strip set blocks and the half square triangle blocks...




And if you think the block layout possibilities are endless, wait till you start playing with the quilt layout....

No sashing, just blocks....


Add a sashing with another 9 patch block as the corner stones...


Same sashing and corner stones, just a different layout of the block....


I hope I've triggered your creative juices and they are flowing freely by now.  Make a block or two and play with it.  Use a different alternate block.... the possibilities are endless...

But don't forget to go check out the other designers and their blocks on Quiltmaker's 100 Blocks Volume 13 Blog Tour.  You can find the full schedule for today and the rest of the week over at Quiltmaker's Blog, Quilty Pleasures.  Quiltmaker is also having a giveaway for some fabulous prizes.  You can register for them at Quilty Pleasures.  You can also win your very own copy of Quiltmaker's 100 Blocks Volume 13 Magazine.  Just leave me a comment and use the Rafflecopter gadget to enter to win.

Thanks for stopping in and have a great week.

  3. I can't think of a favorite block. I am open to any one block because I like the journey of building a quilt. I think of your layouts I like the one with the flipped half-square corner triangles best. I like the dark contrast on the center of the block rather than on the edge.

  4. I love the 12" star with the fussy cut center.

  54. I love log cabins. When I first started quilting and didn't do so well with accurate seams I did NOT like them. But once I tried paper piecing them I was hooked. And then I made wonky log cabins. Super fun. And the layout possibilities could keep a girl busy for a long while. Kind of like what you did with mixing up your block, very cool.
