100 more Blocks

Yesterday I received this in the mail -

When the Quiltmaker Blog started their 100 Block tour, I posted their button and let them know that the dates listed were from last year. They thanked me by sending me this issue of 100 Blocks Vol 3!! Woo-hoo, how very exciting. There are so many wonderful blocks made by some very talented designers.

Have you ever made a quilt from a block design in one of their magazines? Last year I made a couple of blocks from this edition of Quiltmaker -

and ended up making this quilt.

I really like how the quilting turned out. I started this as a baby gift, but only recently finished the quilting.

I love to do geometric patterns, and on this one I added the vine with daisies around the sashing and borders. Now I just have to finish up the binding and maybe this baby gift will be sent before the baby turns one!!

Have a Happy Quilting day!

Oh you sound so much like me! I have the best intentions. Of course you do a lot better work than me. I am not that good. But it just seems like I want to get something done and then before I know the deadline is passed by. I absolutely love that quilt!
