Quiltmaker's 100 Blocks

 Welcome blog tourists!

 I was so excited to be included in this issue!  This is my second time appearing in a Quiltmaker’s 100 Blocks issue.  I didn’t have a blog the first time I was in the magazine so I am excited to participate this time.  Check out my blog archives to see what I have been up to since I began the blog this summer.

 I have been designing and marketing my own patterns since 2003.  My love is combining traditional piecing and appliqué to make unique creations.  I also love to design seasonal and holiday themed items.  Feel free to view my web site: http://www.snugglesquilts.com.  I also have a book called “Country Fresh Quilts”   published in 2008 by Martingale & Co.  My next book “Scrap Quilts Go Country” will be out in February of 2011.

 My block is called “Tulip Twist”.  I wanted to create a pieced flower themed block and not use any appliqué.  I created my block in “cool” colors, but I feel you can adapt this block to any color family you like.

Here is my block:

 

 To make a quick and colorful table runner, follow the direction in the magazine to make three Tulip Twist blocks and then join them into a row.  Next add 2 1/4” borders to the sides.  You will need to cut 2 border strips 2 1/4 x 36 1/2 for the long sides and 2 border strips 2 1/4 x 16 for the short sides (about 1/4 yard of fabric will be plenty).  Join the long border strips to the block row first, then the short strips.  The finished runner will  measure 16 x 40.

 

 Look for Quiltmaker's 100 Blocks on newsstands November 16th or visit http://www.quiltmaker.com/100blocks to purchase an issue.  Be sure to visit the Quiltmaker blog at http://www.quiltmaker.com/quiltypleasures where you will be eligible for great prizes! 

I will be drawing a name from those who comment here and you will receive a free issue of the magazine!  Leave a comment here and come back Friday, November 12th to see if you are a winner!

Beautiful block! I'm imagining it'd look great in reds, oranges and yellows as well - like a sunburst. :)

I love your block and the colors.  I'm not into flower blocks but because of the colors you've chosen, this is a great design.  Can't wait to get the pattern so I can make a table runner in fall colors.
