Can you believe it’s time for another volume of Quiltmaker’s 100 Blocks issue, and we’re up to Volume 6, and there’s another exciting blog tour and I’m so happy to be a part of it again!  These issues provide so much inspiration for me and I look forward to each one of them.  The previous issues have become one of my greatest quilting resources so I can’t recommend them enough! There are gorgeous applique blocks, intriguing paper pieced blocks, some blocks that are combinations of different techniques and of course . . my favorite . . traditional piecing.

My block in this issue is this:

Here’s my block in my favorite bright fabrics.

And here’s just one example of how it could be used in a quilt:

Design Wall Monday – November 5, 2012

This isn’t my design wall but it’s quilting nonetheless so I’m showing it.  These are all the half square triangles I’ve made for Nicole’s Quilt.  432 of the little rascals. I only needed 400 but because I was using Triangulations™ and made full sheets, I ended up with a few extra.  In the picture, they’ve all been trimmed but not pressed so you’re seeing the back side of the fabric.

They’re in stacks — on the left are for the full blocks, in the center are for the half blocks along the edge and on the far right are the four corner blocks.
