Good morning quilting fans!!
It is Quiltmaker magazine's Rocks the Blocks Blog tour day!! How exciting! All the quilter designers who are featured today have a quilt in the newest magazine: Quilts From 100 Blocks.
Here is the cover of the magazine that should be on newstands today!! What do you think? I love the cover!!
Here is my quilt featured in the magazine, my quilt is on page 87 All a Glow!! And man does it ever scream "Look at me"!
And yes, this is the quilt, not a digital image from EQ7. I quilted the heck out of it too!!
Now, I thought I would show where this quilt came from. What inspired me ....first I found the "100 Blocks" magazine. I decided I would try to design a block and see how that went. I did it, here is the block:
Now, can you see this block in the quilt image above? Once my block was accepted into the magazine...well honey, it made the cover!!
See? My block is top left! How sweet is that?! I was asked, like all others that made the magazine to design a quilt using that block and you could combine it with other blocks that also made volumes 1-5 of the magazine. I was so stinking proud of myself that I just used my block!! But, the challenge was on! What could I do to make me step out of my comfort zone, do something that is not the traditional setting? Also, I wanted stricking colors, come and getcha colors!! Did I accomplish this? I think so!! Man, did I ever step out of my "box"! You can see what I came up with....Here ya go again, just for your viewing pleasure:
Quiltmaker magazine did a great job in digitizing my quilting. I do all custom work, no computer! And in case you are wondering, this is a king size quilt...and it is LOUD!
Now, if you would like to win a free copy of the magazine, please leave me a comment and your email!! I need this information so I can contact you to let you know you have won. I would also like to add a little something myself...I will offer a free fat quarter bundle to a 2nd winner. I'm not going to show you the bundle, it will be a surprise!!
Don't forget, leave a comment and please participate in the blog tour!!

Here are some alternate color ways for the quilt...just playing around...
Happy Sewing everyone!!
