100 Blocks Volume 5 blog tour

Giveaway Closed and the winner has been announced.
Thank you :)

It may be old news that my block is in Quiltmaker's 100 Block vol. 5 but I am still excited to share a copy of the magazine with you.



My block was inspired by the magazine beads I used to make as a child.
Did you ever make magazine beads with glue and strips of magazine pages?
We made tons and had a lot fun.
Here's my block:


I designed a quilt in EQ7 to make with the block on point.

There are quite a few design possibilities with this block.
Even set straight--->

If you'd like to win a copy of the 100 blocks vol. 5 then leave a comment on THIS post.
I will randomly draw a winner on May 6th.

Check out the other blocks and giveaways on Quiltmaker's website.
Good Luck!
