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.
