Quiltmaker’s 100 Blocks Vol. 3 Blog Tour

Today is my day on Quiltmaker’s 100 Blocks, Volume 3 Blog Tour!  Check it out — lots of good quilt bloggers are included in the tour. And, there are prizes . . good prizes!  Volume 3 will be on the new stands and in quilt shops on May 10.  I’ll remind you again on that so you don’t miss it.

Back when I had the cover up and asked you to guess which one was mine, most guessed the orange/purple block over on the right side but that belongs to Julie at JayBird Quilts!  We both got a kick out of everyone thinking her block was my block, and we had kinda used the same colors.  See the three at the very top.  Mine is the middle one.  Some did guess that one.  It’s Block #283 (page 67) in the magazine.  My block is named Rain Dance.

Want to see the quilt I made using my block?  I thought you might!

The block instructions are in the issue, along with 99 other wonderful blocks!  The perimeter blocks on my quilt were modified a bit and a pieced border of pinwheel blocks was added.  A full photo of the quilt is included in the magazine.  With the block instructions in the magazine, you can easily make this quilt.

As with the two previous volumes, the blocks in this issue are fantastic and I think any quilter would be thrilled to have this issue in their collection.

Would you like to win your very own copy of Volume 3?    Two copies will be given away on my blog.  One will come directly from Quiltmaker.  One copy will come from me.  All you have to do is leave a comment here to be entered.  Only one comment per person please.  And, be sure that I have a way to contact you so I can get your address if you are the winner!

Leave a comment by tomorrow evening and some time on Saturday night I’ll draw two names to win their very own copy of this fun magazine!   Be sure that I have an email address so I can contact you if you’re the winner!

As soon as you finish leaving your comment, head on over to the Quilty Pleasures website, check out the other blogs and enter to win great prizes!

    I like the block. The quilt is sooo pretty. Gives you a ray of sunshine after all the rain and flooding.

  34. 47

    Debbie says

    I have always loved your color choices I must choose about the same as my mom (she does my long arm quilting) always says my quilts are “bright”

    Can’t wait to get a copy of this magazine….. Someone had a very good idea when they came up with the idea for this series of magazines…

    Carol Sc says

    Hmm — why am I not surprised at all the purple? I always like your blocks — piecing is probably my favorite part of making a quilt and you use that method so well. I keep watching your progress on finding a home and wish you luck!

    jackie lorenz says

    I love you color choices, because I love working with the jewel tones. I am surrounded by quilters who love muted, repros and retros.
    I think that your choice of color and block are a perfect match.

  49. 81


    Congratulations! I love how this block makes up in to that quilt – and a great use of colour too! And the name of the block is great – and what we really need here in Perth – rain dance… need the rain…

  50. 83

    Linda Lasco says

    Great block enhanced (as usual!) by your creative border treatment.

  51. 84

    Sarah Stevens says

  52. 86

    WiAmy says

    What a cheerful looking quilt on a “rainy” day! I suppose a quilter “dances” on a rainy day because those are perfect quilting kind of days! Congratulations on a job well done. I thought it was this block, but when you mentioned that so many thought is was the other one–I then switched my choice!

  53. 87

    VickiT says

    Congratulations on being included in Issue 3! Your block is really great Judy and another I cannot wait to for my magazine to check out. It’s funny how so many picked Julie’s block as yours. The complete quilt is just gorgeous.

  54. 88

    Becky R says

    I can’t believe I’ve never purchased one of these magazines. I really like your block and many others that I can see on the cover. Looking forward to having my own copy of this magazine. I also love your quilt made from the block and hope you’ll have nstructions available soon.

  55. 89

    Elizabeth says

    Hi Judy, I like your brightly colored quilts. I like how you can join them together to get an extra feature for the quilt, not how the blocks get isolated with sashing. I loved your cinnamon bun recipe. Have made it twice now and have had rave reviews. I tell them I got the recipe from your blogsite. Thanks. Liz

  56. 90

    Wonderful block and it makes a great quilt. Love all your colors.

  60. 97


    I’m one of the ones that miss identified Julie’s block as yours. But I seem to remember when you working on the pinwheels — of course I could be dreaming. Great quilt. Congratualations.

  61. 98


    Such excitement! I’d love to have a copy.
    Because of you, I’m picking up a new sewing machine tomorrow and am going to take classes. I haven’t sewn in years, but you are so inspiring.

    Judy I have the first two volumes and would love the third!!! And your quilts inspire me…they look so difficult but when you break them down even I think I can handle them!!!! :o)

    What a cheerful spring time quilt. We sure could use some spring here in Idaho. Good luck with house hunting don’t envy you on that one.

  77. 131

    Sandy says

    Judy, you always come up with great blocks and cheery colors. I love the pinwheel design, it adds so much movement. It is so exciting to see your blocks and quilts in magazines. I am so proud of you and treasure you as an internet friend. Wish I could meet you in person!!

  78. 132

    Eden Hunt says

    I have so enjoyed reading your blog over the last month or so and I love design wall mondays and have found a bunch of fabulous and creative ladies to follow from that as well! Good luck with your house hunting! I love the quilt you made with your block too – very colorful and cheery. Congratulations on having your block in this new issue.

    Kate says

    Ooh! I love your block and the quilt you made with it! Thanks for a chance to win this book!

  82. 137


    I was one of the people who guessed wrong, but the right block is really neat, too. This is such a good issue with so much talent contributing to it.

  83. 138


    It was fun guessing – although now I don’t remember which one I guessed was yours. I just remember thinking it would look complex but really be easy once broken down and make an extra ordinary quilt. That part I was right about! Beautiful quilt!!

  84. 140

    Robin says

    Great block! I love how the look changes when the blocks are placed together in the quilt.

  85. 142

    eve in ga says

    That’s a great block and quilt, Judy! I’ve enjoyed both of the other editions, and just know I’ll love this one, too. Eve

  86. 143


    Your quilt turned out wonderful! I am impressed that you can keep up with this and look for houses at the same time. I would be eating a LOT of chocolate and drinking a LOT of Dr Pepper!

  87. 144


    I love the colors in this quilt! I think I guessed the orange and purple block like most others but I really like the look of this block, especially in the multiple, bright colors.

  88. 145

    Sarah says

    Oh Boy! I guessed rightly about which was your beautiful block. I thought about the square in square, but it just didn’t seem as involved as your quilts. You have beautiful designs that look as if they would be almost impossible to accomplish, But, in reality, they are very simple when broken down into elements. Congrats on being in this volume. Sarah

    quiltcookie says

    another great block I especially like the pinwheel border on the quilt. yours is the first blog I read every day. Thanks for all you do.

    I like your block! The magazine is great! I saw it at the grocery store, but didn’t buy it then with the hopes that I would win a copy. Thanks for the chance.

  93. 150

    Kaye M. says

    I like how the pinwheels seem to spin when you put the whole quilt together. The colors are so bright and cheerful! This has been a fun week on the net with so many inspiring ideas.

  94. 152


    As always you come up with amazing block ideas. And, as a recent (7 years) transplanted Texan I’ve enjoyed your blogs about house hunting and moving here. I especially had to smile when you talked about the number of Texas flags you see…I now make it a point, when going to other states, to see how long it’ll be before I see a state flag. Except for the flag on the Welcome sign and maybe on license plates — often the answer to when? Is never….

  95. 154

    Mary says

    Your finished quilt is beautiful. Congratulations on being featured in the magazine and then on the cover! Good luck house hunting.

  96. 155

    Susan Wheatley says

    Judy, your block is wonderful, and your quilt with all the blocks is GORGEOUS! Love the colors you used. Can’t wait to get my hands on the magazine… hopefully I’ll win one, but if not, I’ll definitely be buying one. Thanks for the great giveaway and your lovely pictures.

  99. 158


    You know you are a superstar quilter when your block appears above the magazine title! It’s like being the movie star who’s name appears above the movie title on the theater marquee!

    Great block with a great secondary design. From what I’ve seen on the tour all week, this issue is just chock full of great blocks and ideas. I’m like everyone else, if I don’t win one I’ll be first in line at the book store on the 10th!!

  100. 161


    Love the colors, the block, and the quilt. I can’t wait to get myself a copy of this book and make me some quilts from it.

    patti says

    oh my goodness… it took me 3 looks to even see the “3 blocks at the very top”! i kept going back to your quilt and then the book cover, i totally missed the the 3 at the VERY top, i kept looking in the top row. boy did i feel stupid when i finally figured it out. the quilt came out beautifully, it does look like you ;0)

  109. 175


    I love your block and quilt! It’s funny that when you asked which one was yours a while back, I totally didn’t see the three blocks at the top of the magazine! I was one of those people who thought that Julie’s block was yours. I think it was the colors that made me think that. Congratulations on being in the magazine!!

  110. 177


    What a spectacular quilt!! Do you know how many people will b making this one??!!! Can’t WAIT to get the magazine. How great it must feel to be a part of “100 Blocks”!

    I love your cheery choice of colors and the use of nearly solid fabrics. The solids really lets the design shine!

  115. 185


    Beautiful bright quilt. It actually uplifts your spirits. On your home search, what about a pre-fab home? Built just the way you want and quickly.

  116. 186

    Nancy says

    Your Rain Dance block and the quilt you made are beautiful! This will go on my “must do” list. It looks as though Quiltmaker has done it again. The best of the best.

  119. 191


    Looks like all your Design Wall and Stash Report friends are here. I love the mini pinwheels in the border that echo and finish the quilt just so. I don’t need the ‘rain’ but I’ll take the Magazine. Thanks for a chance to win! Happy Mother’s Day!

  120. 192


    Leave it to you to be at the very top of the page–my guess is they chose it because it is special. I love the quilt, colors are exquisite, but oh so many pinwheels–perhaps a lap quilt. Congratulations are another winner!

  121. 195

    Jennifer W says

    I love how the pinwheels are formed at the intersection of each block. Good luck in your search for a house or building.

    Ya fooled me! I thought it was the one on the right, too…glad that it’s the pinwheels, though. 🙂 Your quilt is the closest to “scrappy” that I remember seeing you show us. That’s mostly what I’ve got here: small amounts of lots of stuff! Even my backings are pieced.
