Welcome back to the 100 Blocks Sew Along. So glad you could join us!
Today we’re featuring Payton’s Star, block #160 from Quiltmaker’s 100 Blocks, vol. 2. This block was designed by Sharyn Craig. And, since we’re also in the middle of the 100 Blocks, Vol. 13 Blog Tour, we’re going to play along and have a little giveaway (find out more at the end)!
All of the blocks in the 100 Blocks Sampler have come from various issues of this magazine! Here’s Payton’s Star:
I also wanted to show you a fun little block that you can make with leftover fabric. Are you familiar with Quiltmaker’s Bitty Blocks? These are 3″ and 4″ blocks that were featured on our Quilty Pleasures blog during 2015. Each month we provided a free pattern for one block. Here are some bowties made using red and white fabrics.
Here’s the free pattern for the bowties.
And now for the giveaway! Leave me a comment and let me know which 100 Blocks Sampler block has been your favorite so far and why by Tuesday 5/10. I’ll randomly choose one person to win books by two of the designers whose blocks we’ve featured so far, Half-Scrap Quilts by Mickey Depre and Precut Primer by Me and My Sister Designs along with a copy of Quiltmaker’s 100 Blocks, vol. 13.
