100 Blocks and a Giveaway


Have you seen this?
It's the newest Quiltmaker's 100 Blocks!
Time sure flies by quickly.
 It seems like just yesterday I was sewing up my block for the 100 blocks vol.2.
At the time, I was making my Freebird quilt "Chocolate Stars" for Moda Bakeshop.
 I carefully selected the colors to accent the block, from the Freebird scraps.
I am slowly catching on to the color wheel, color world or whatever you'd like to call it :)
I love this block and it was really hard to send it away.



Now that you know which block is mine, do you spy it on the cover?

Quiltmaker named it Infinity. Cool name :)

When I received the cover art work, I blinked and double blinked. 
 Was my block one chosen for the cover?
It was.
What a lovely surprise.

Would you like a copy of 100 blocks?
