Quiltmaker's 100 Blocks, volume 3

Sherri and I just love Quiltmaker's 100 Blocks magazines and we're delighted that we've each gotten to design a block for each one. Here's my design for volume 3 and I'm so pleased with how it came out.

My Rose Garden block!

I love little nine-patches and have included them in several of my quilts over the years. And I've always been enthralled with patterns like Ocean Waves that give the illusion of curved piecing with straight-edge patches. When I combined those two ideas with my favorite pink and green palette, this is what emerged. Fortunately I have a stash the size of Mt. Rushmore so I was able to find just the right floral for the center of my block. I'd love to see my block in other colorways, so if you make it, please let me know by adding a comment. And then please post a photo to our Facebook page (www.facebook.com/mccallsquilting ). Thanks!

And here's Sherri's Garden Spot block!

Sherri says, “I love Kaffe Fassett fabrics, but don't always know what to do with those big prints. I designed this block to showcase one of my favorites! Leave a comment below to be entered in a random drawing for a free issue.”
