100-blocks-day-2Let’s get on the road!

100-blocks-day-2-block-allenBlock #1552
Designed by: Nancy Allen

From the intersection of 4 quadrants of Quarter-Square Triangles X Marks the Spot in Nancy’s block design. Do you see a secondary design emerge from this block?

100-blocks-day-2-block-brickeyBlock #1512
Designed by: Cheryl Brickey, Meadow Mist Designs

Cheryl made Boxed Pinwheel from foundation piecing and Robert Kaufman Kona Cotton Solids fabric. The sharp contrast resulting from the solid fabric gives this block two-dimensional appeal.

100-blocks-day-2-block-fanninBlock #1564
Designed by: Kelli Fannin, Kelli Fannin Quilt Designs

Conversation Hearts is like one of those Valentine’s Day boxes of stamped candy hearts. You know, the ones you sort through to find ‘the right one’ to give a friend? Kelli created the special messages for hearts with fabric. Can you tell what kind of fabric she used?100-blocks-day-2-block-foster

Block #1532
Designed by: Cynthia Foster, Carter Creek Quilts

Do you have an exceptional view to peek at while you sew? Cynthia shares what she sees beyond her sewing machine in her block design, Love the View.

100-blocks-day-2-block-friendBlock #1514
Designed by: Amy Friend, During Quiet Time

Foundation piecing expands the possibilities of block designs. Amy takes on a creative edge with her block Jagged by joining two foundation sections. She made her sample block with her own fabric design, Improv by Amy Friend for Contempo, a division of Benartex Fabrics.

100-blocks-day-2-block-hertelBlock #1518
Designed by: Mary Hertel, Made by Marney

You can just see the icicles form in Mary’s Icy Blast design. It’s another example of the fun things that can happen with foundation piecing.

100-blocks-day-2-block-martinBlock #1577
Designed by: Debbie Martin

The geese are flying every which way in Puzzled Geese.

100-blocks-day-2-block-pilandBlock #1583
Designed by: Laura Piland, Slice of Pi Quilts

Can you figure out how Laura made her block? It almost looks like she created a pieced background and then sewed an open square on top of it in Skyscraper. This is one unique block design to check out.

100-blocks-day-2-block-youngBlock #1600
Designed by: Kelly Young, My Quilt Infatuation

Shades of color spin from the center, like a Centrifuge. Kelly made her unique block design with Kona Cotton Solids from Robert Kaufman and Cirrus Solids by Cloud 9 Fabrics.
