Wanna sneak a peek in the magazine?

May 4, 2011

My copies arrived yesterday, and I have not stopped jumping in excitement!

I will be drinking my tea from this puppy for awhile I suspect..

Yep, all 100 blocks are on it, including my little purple one on the top left..

I don’t think I’ve ever seen a button this humongous! My daughter thinks it’s pretty cool *grin*

The juicy table of contents..

The instructions for My Easter Dress block is on page 34.

There is a designer gallery on page 18, showcasing some of the projects that were made using the blocks from the magazine..

It’s a substantial issue, stuffed to the gills with block designs. All the the pattern templates come printed in what looks like a single sheet – folded a billion times – stapled in the centre of the magazine.

The blocks are organized in categories, with the section you’re in highlighted by a richer color:

I’ve already found some faves. I’ve always wanted to try fusible bias strips:

And this one is just so darn cheerful!

I’m pretty sure it’s on newstands on May 10th, and if I didn’t already have mine I’d be stalking the store hourly

    I’m on my way to Chapters this morning. Thanks for the heads up. It looks like an excellent edition. I’ve been practicing my paper piecing. I can’t wait to give it a try and the 2 other patterns that I purchased from you.

    It’s great to share your thrill. Thank-you for taking the trouble to show us the mag, and there is nothing to compare with hands on..I love getting a magazine to hold. Digital is great but it lacks something. Congratulations, your block is delightful. Thanks again for sharing.

    I LOVE the mug! My friend, Konda Luckau from Moose on the Porch, has a block in the new 100 quilt blocks issue. Where can I buy a mug for her and one for me?

    Thank-you so much everyone for you awesome comments!! *hugs*

    Nettie – the mug is a special gift to all the designers. I don’t think they’re actually for sale, but Konda should have one already 🙂
