100 blocks vol.6

Are you excited for the next issue of Quiltmaker's 100 Blocks?
I am.
I finally get to share the block I designed.


The X-Act block


Here's my original layout on point with snowball blocks.
I think this block could be alternated with any simple blocks for varying effects.


Here it is with an Economy block alternated with it in Kate Spain's Honey Honey fabrics.
or
how about set straight in P B and J by Basic Grey?.....


Hmm I think I am a BIG fan of the P B and J version.
If you'd like to win a copy of Quiltmaker's 100 blocks leave me a comment as to which layout you like best.
Snowball?
Economy?
or
P B and J?
I will be randomly choosing a winner on November 11th.
Quiltmaker will send you the magazine!
Good Luck.

Vivian said...

I like the economy because of the secondary design, and I love the color (aqua) of the secondary design too. Cute block thanks. Vivian

Sandy said...

I have to say Economy. I'd like to see it with even more 'hidden' colors, almost like some of those patterns that fool the eye into thinking it's 3-D, or you don't see certain shapes unless you turn it 'this way' -- something like that. Lovely work.

I like economy the best, There is so much interest in the pieced blocks. I am a fan of on point also so that one is my favorite.

banjo795 said...

I like the look of the Economy setting with scrappy X-act blocks, but I like the Snowball layout when using coordinated fabrics. I'm afraid that I'm not a fan of the straight set because I think it needs more of the X-act blocks.
