Happy 100 Blocks Volume 4 Day!

November 7, 2011

Welcome welcome Quiltmaker’s 100 Blocks  Volume 4 Blog Tourists!

Are you ready for some sneaky sneak peeks into this exciting new special issue? I’m telling you Volume 4 is stuffed with AMAZING blocks, I’m so so excited to be a part of it!

And did you guess which block was mine?

I call him Lil’ Monkey and you can find him on page 28,

He was one of those blocks that came together really quickly for me. I’ve wanted to do a monkey for quite some time now and I thought this would be a great opportunity to see what I could put together. I  perused the net for photos of actual monkeys and realized the direction I wanted to take when I came across some stills from Stanley, a kids show from Disney

The shape of the Dad’s head cracks me up!

Anyway, I played around and figured his design out in about an hour. I kept his body really simple and did my best to keep other pieces large enough so making a whole quilt of monkeys would be easy and fun to do! I also played around with some Lil’ Monkey variations, but that’s for another time *wink*

He features backstitched facial features, and satin stitched eyes. The instructions call for an appliqued mouth, or you could take the lazy gals route and color them in with a fabric marker like it did. *grin*  Since those markers tend to bleed a bit, I backstitched the outline first and then carefully colored it in, letting the stitching hide the color bleed.

I’d rate his pattern as easy intermediate, and if you need a refresher in paper piecing check out my video tutorials.

You have to see the rest of that two-page spread he’s on,

See that drop dead gorgeous Maple leaf block by Eileen Fowler, who just happens to be the Associate Editor of Quiltmaker?

I can’t help but feel all giddy about sharing a magazine spread with such esteemed company! *grin*

I have more photos of some ridiculously charming and beautiful blocks from this issue, but I’ll keep those for another day so I don’t spill too many beans right away. It is the first day of the blog tour after all!

So the issue is organized into sections of applique, foundation pieced, mixed technique and pieced, and features a full spread of quilting motifs for you to play with. I’m stoked about that, cause I never know what to do when it’s time to quilt.

And even if you’re new to quilting, this special issue has 4 pages of techniques with great diagrams covering several applique instructions, bias strips, curved piecing, flying geese, foundation piecing, set in seams,  a host of embroidery stitch diagrams, and then a whole page about how to bind and finish your quilts.

Page 88 features a Designer’s Gallery, and look what I found at the very back of the magazine in the Sew to Speak section featuring projects made by you from previous issues of Quiltmaker’s 100 blocks

A darling mini quilt by Julie Harvill called “Swingtime”, featuring My Easter Dress blocks from Volume 3!

So are you drooling or what?!

If you’d like a chance to win your very own copy of Quiltmaker’s 100 Blocks Vol. 4, then leave me a comment below with some way to contact you and I’ll choose one lucky winner this Wednesday November 9, 2011!

**Comments are now closed and I’m off to pick a winner**

~ Good luck and be sure to visit the other great designers participating in the blog tour! ~

    Super cute little monkey block. I really love the way they organize the magazine as well with the sections being separated the way they do too. And the extra tips in the back are great so while working on a block if you have a question you can find it right there and not have to go to the computer to look it up. It seems anything that takes me back to my computer finds me staying there being distracted for hours instead of finding what I went there for and then right back to the block I was working on. lol

    I tested blocks for vol 4 but did not get the honor of doing yours. If I had there would be a whole quilt of monkeys in my collection. My granddaugher was thumbing through the mag with me and saw your block, she said- is that my dad when he was a kid?
    (we use to call him Monkey Mike b/c he was a climber) cracked me up, I know I will make this block and add it to a quilt for him someday. can’t wait to see your other ideas. cw
