Quiltmaker’s 100 Blocks Volume 7

Another day, another blog tour! It’s a busy week around these parts. So last summer or fall (I can’t remember, to be honest) I decided it would be fun to submit an original block to Quiltmaker’s newest edition of their 100 Blocks magazine.
Well, Volume 7 hits newsstands next week and I am excited to have my block in the issue!
My block is called All Roads Lead Home and you can find it on page 68  I went with something a little more modern for my block. I think it’s pretty nice on it’s own but…

I REALLY like it as part of a complete quilt. I need to make one of these quilts out of real, live fabric now!

 
This issue is full of quilty-inspiration. A huge variety of blocks in all different styles by some very creative people. Quiltmaker Magazine is giving away a copy of this latest volume. If you’d like the chance to win one, just leave a comment on this post. Giveaway closes on Monday, May 6, at midnight MST. A winner will be randomly selected and notified.  GIVEAWAY CLOSED.
Winner:   Cindi said…
I love your block. Did you get the quilt finished? I’d love to see what you’ve done.

    I am completely new to sewing and quilting (read: haven&#39;t made the first one yet, but doing LOTS of research). I would LOVE to win this magazine. It would definitely be a great &quot;jumping off&quot; point.

    I just fell in love with your quilt. This is so pretty and will look so lovely on my bed. A copy of QM 100 Blocks, Volume 7 would sure come in handy. There are so many gorgeous blocks that I want to make, yours included. Thank you for being a part of this tour and giving me a chance to win.<br /><br />Sandi Timmons

    The block is wonderful! I love the aqua and gray with the white background. I&#39;m anxious to see a print in as part of the block, too. It amazed me to see blocks come together for the secondary pattern to pop.

  5. says

    Another great block with secondary pattern possibilities. Hmmm, I need to make a baby quilt and I could see &quot;I spy&quot; fabrics fussy cut into those center squares! Love it!

    I really enjoy seeing your blocks put together in a quilt. It&#39;s very inspirational. <br /><br />Thanks for the chance to win your giveaway.

    I never would have guessed that your block multiplied would make that quilt. Amazing to see the secondary patterns come alive. Quilting is like magic! :-)

    The block by itself is really nice–but, you are right, in a quilt layout it really packs a punch. This would be fun to play with using different color schemes and values.<br /><br />LizE

    All Roads Lead Home is a great looking block and one that I think I might use for my son&#39;s quilt since he seems to have finally found his way in the world and back home.

  19. says

    Love your block! This would work perfectly for the &#39;I Spy&#39; quilt I&#39;m collecting fabric for. Hmmm. Is also a perfect pattern for a &#39;Family Album&#39; quilt with lots of printed photos. You&#39;ve inspired me!! Thanks so much for the block and the chance to win.

    Great Block and really stunning in the quilt sample you gave us. Could be used in traditional and modern fabrics – really nice. Thank you.

    Love your comment about making a quilt out of real live fabric! I spend so much time playing in Electric Quilt, I have to make special trips to my stash room to see what real live fabric looks and feels like! LOL

  22. says

    Great block! I have been looking for a block to make a quilt to donate to our local Rescue Squad and this one is it! I love the name of it, too! Congratulations on having your block published!!

  23. says

    Love the block and quilt! I&#39;m thinking low volume background with favorite fabric fussy cut in the center! If I don&#39;t win a copy, I am going to have to pick up my own! Thank for a great block!

  24. says

    &quot;Congratulations!&quot; I am enjoying visit to your<br />web page. Your block looks like it would be<br />quickly cut and assembled once fabrics were<br />chosen.

  25. says

    I really like this block! I&#39;ve been looking for a block/quilt pattern to highlight some favorite fabrics. I&#39;d been considering a square in a square, but I may go with your block instead; the lattice-work look is really striking.

  26. says

    Your block would be great to showcase a special fabric. I like the name of the block because home is my favorite place to be.

    Congratulations Amy! I love the block and even though it isn&#39;t a real quilt shown it does show that this block will make a beautiful quilt!

  33. says

    I have to admit I wasn&#39;t crazy about the block on its own, but wow, do a bunch of them and I love it. I guess I just don&#39;t have the vision to see one block and imagine a whole quilt. I&#39;m glad you provided the visual.

  34. says

    I really like the quilt. It is very suitable for a man or boy&#39;s quilt, which is rare. Using a fussy cut center with a theme or a plaid and it will be loved by the guy in your life.<br />congrats on the published block!

  35. says

    well this is a fun block that could be so much fun combined with others, or also itself like you showed an example of….I love the secondary designs that show up when blocks are set together. I need to do more of that.<br />congrats on the magazine and it<br />it&#39;s been so nice to stop by again!

  37. says

    I am enjoying this blog tour so much. Not getting as much quilting done, but lots of inspiration. When I saw your block I thought it was interesting, but when I saw the block in your quilt design, my first thought was of argyle socks or sweaters. It&#39;s got such a modern vibe and think it would be stunning in the golds and greys shown. Might have to put it on my list of TO-DO&#39;s. Thanks

  38. says

    I like your block and the yellow fabric makes me think of yellow brick road in Oz and Dorothy&#39;s journey home. Thank you for a chance to win.
