Quiltmaker's 100 Blocks Vol. 11 Blog Hop Stop

May 6, 2015
Pin It
I am very excited to have my block included in Quiltmaker's 100 Blocks Volume 11.  I was super surprised when my name appeared on the front cover.  How exciting!  This is the 3rd time I have had one of my blocks included in this wonderful anthology of quilt blocks.

I am a part of the Blog Hop today hosted by Quiltmaker's Quilty Pleasures blog.  There are always so many fun blocks in each volume.  Make sure to stop by the drawing at the end of the post for your chance to win a copy of 100 Blocks Vol. 11 (on sale May 4th).  



Inside you will find my block, Dutch Chain.  I love the soft sorbet colors in this block and the mix of texty prints.  This block was inspired by my family's favorite quilt where I had my bee mates make Dutch Pinwheel blocks for me.  I wanted to trade out the pinwheel center with the always-elegant Irish chain.


Here are a few color options using the Dutch Chain block to get you thinking. 

If you enjoy playing with color and quilt blocks, check out the Patchwork Auditions page.  Bring your colored pencils!  I'll be posting the 3rd block soon.

Thanks for stopping by today!

If you would like a chance to win your own copy of Quiltmaker's 100 Blocks Volume 11 or your choice of one of my Block of the Month Club patterns, enter the giveaway below. (Giveaway ends Wednesday, May 13, 2015)
