Quiltmaker's 100 Blocks Kick Off Giveaway

Welcome! Today kicks off the Blog Hop to celebrate the release of Quiltmaker's 100 Blocks Vol. 11. It runs May 4-8, and there will be lots of blogs to visit and prizes to win! So let's party!

My block, called Beat It, is #1046 on page 34.  It's mostly pieced, but is in the mixed technique category due to the trim.

I had so much fun making it, I made four more, all out of scraps.

Even the white background came from scraps. But this time, instead of sewing the beaters' ric-rac down, I left it loose and intertwined it. On some, I used skinny ribbon instead of ric-rac.

Then I added a white border and some scrappy borders around them and sewed them together... make a wall hanging size, about 34" square. When I accidentally stitched the handle pieces backwards on one of them, I just decided to go with it and make one of them facing the other direction. :)  

I hope you have fun blog surfing and seeing all of the blocks and entering the giveaways!  For the giveaway here, these are the prizes up for grabs, thanks to some really generous sponsors!


Quiltmaker will be giving a copy of the magazine to one lucky winner..


Wintercreek Cloth has generously offered to give another winner a Modern Solids Strip Set A Rainbow by In the Beginning Fabrics.


...and yet another winner, a $25 gift certificate to their online shop, which I will include a copy of the magazine with.


Mad About Patchwork has contributed a $30 gift certificate to their shop, which I will also include a copy of the magazine with.


And last, but not least, Fat Quarter Shop has donated a FQ bundle of Kona Cotton Solids, the Red Pepper Quilts Designer Palette Bundle.

That's five winners! For entries, I went the easy way again and put together a rafflecopter.  That way, I'll be sure to have an email address to contact the winners, and it's easy for you to click whichever entries you'd like. Blog followers get extra entries. Thanks for stopping in and happy hopping! :) And thanks Quiltmaker for including my block! Don't forget to head over there when you're done here to enter all of the other giveaways!
