Quiltmaker’s 100 Blocks Blog Tour Road Rally: Volume 16, Day 3
Can you believe it? We are half way through the Quiltmaker’s 100 Blocks blog tour for volume 16. We are really pleased you chose to join us on our road rally. We’ve toured 20 blocks this week so far and have another 9 blocks to share with you today. Our designers are waiting for you to make a block stop at their place to learn more about the inspiration of their design, pick up a few tips and techniques or look at ideas they have for a quilt using their block.
If you missed the first two days of the tour you can still visit the blocks from Day 1 of the tour and see the blocks showcased on Day 2. The latest issue of 100 Blocks is on the newsstand and you can download a copy from The Quilting Company by clicking here. Or order a print version here.
Tours are scheduled every day this week, so set your alarm to join us!

Let’s get on the road!
Designed by: Paige Alexander, Quilted Blooms
Even though we just started our winter season we are always Waiting for Spring and the beauty of the spring flowers. Paige gathered a lovely bouquet of applique flowers with basics from RJR Fabrics and Cotton + Steel.
Designed by: Emily Breclaw, The Caffeinated Quilter
Make a Diamond Wreath for a modern twist of a holiday wreath. Emily’s design comes together with English Paper Pieced patches and yo-yos appliqued to a cream background.
Designed by: Cheryl Brown, Quilter Chic
Calling All Monsters! You know who you are! Cheryl pulled out playful to create this fun whimsical design. How could any child be afraid of this little goblin?
Designed by: Meg Hawkey, Crabapple Hill Studio
Bring out your embroidery threads to create the unique centerpiece of Meg’s Halloween Mandala. Meg used Cosmo by Lecien to stitch her intricate design and then finished the block by surrounding it with pieced Flying Geese.
Designed by: Debby Kratovil, Quilter by Design
Designed by: Sarah Maxwell, Designs by Sarah J
Sarah created Fancy Frames to surround her fabric line, A Shout, A Whisper, A Text for Marcus Fabrics. Foundation sections give the edges to this block design.
Designed by: Sharon Denney Parcel, Yellow Cat Quilt Designs
Are you ready for the Galactic Voyager? Another foundation pieced design sets the cats in motion with Sharon’s block design and Cat Lady by Sara Watts for Cotton + Steel and Carkai by Carolyn Friedlander for Robert Kaufman.
Designed by: Jenny Kae Parks, Jenny Kae Quilts
The quiet silhouette of a dainty flower against the soft hues of the setting sun create a unique Ombre Flower. Jenny set her flower apart with Gelato Ombre from Maywood Studio and a Kona Cotton Solid black from Robert Kaufman.
Designed by: Terri Vanden Bosch, Lizard Creek Quilting
Sky Diamonds accent the points of a star in Terri’s block design. Foundation piecing places the shapes of color to create a unique setting.
