My Home Sweet Home Quilt Block Pattern - In Quiltmakers Magazine 100 Blocks!!! ...


I've been building some
 "Home Sweet Home" blocks
 that will become a new quilt 
for my family room.

You may have already seen each 
of these blocks a few weeks ago
as they were in progress
if you happen to follow me on 









So far I have 4 completed and
 5 more cut and ready to go…
just waiting patiently
 for a little free sewing time:)


I designed the block for the latest issue of Quiltmakers 100 Blocks…
 which hit the stores a few weeks ago.

Do you have your copy yet?

My block instructions are on page 66:)



It's the Winter 2013 - Volume 8 Edition...



And my name is on the cover…
YaY!


Here is my block on the mug 
that was sent out to
 all of those 100 designers 
who participated in this issue.


We also got a ginormous badge ...fun!!!


All of the blocks in the magazine have instructions
 and all 100 of them finish at 12" square.
You can even win some of the blocks!

This week there is a giveaway for one person to win all 8 volumes.
That is 800 blocks!!!
The giveaway ends at midnight this friday
All you have to do is leave a comment:)


I will of course be showing 
my progress on the quilt…
I hope you sew my 
"Home Sweet Home"
 blocks along with me!

Have a quilty kind of day!
xx
Lori

Beautiful...cant wait to get my issue

piffle said...

Dear, This is so out of my comfort zone for the style of this and the colors, and I love that you are giving a give-a-way for your pattern and perhaps win a block or two.
I am to find this pattern, buy it and get on with cutting it out, of course after I purchase delicious FQ to get on with the project. I simply cannot believe what fun this will be.
Whew! What a fun quilt.
