Quiltmaker’s 100 Blocks Block #480
I am excited to finally show you my block, #480 On the Path, that is in the latest Quiltmaker’s 100 Blocks! Here’s a better picture of the bright turquoise square in the corner of the COVER!!!
I made this block last year. The color of the year last year was turquoise. As I have never been interested in turquoise, I took it upon myself to use it in some quilts. I have been pleasantly surprised at the results. It still isn’t a favorite color, but I have learned to appreciate the color turquoise. My block is made in honor of the color turquoise.
Then, you may remember THIS post about making a queen size quilt at hyper speed. Well, this is the quilt I made on turbo. It is shown on page 14 in Quiltmaker’s 100 Blocks, Vol. 5.
I like the overall picture in the magazine. You can see that 16 blocks formed 4 rings. I would have liked to make the 25 blocks I had intended to make 9 rings. There’s no way I would have gotten it done on time. Here’s a closer picture. You can see that I used some Timeless Treasures batik fabrics with the gray.
Here’s the quilting on the extra wide border. I can’t decide how well I like the quilting, but it works.
The block was inspired from a quilt that I designed that is in my new book Simply Charming Minis that is at the printer right now!
Here is Morse Code. This quilt measures 16″ x 18″.
And another version of Morse Code that is also in the book.
It was fun to make a mini quilt even smaller and use it as a block. I named the quilt after I designed it. After I named it, I was curious. What letters am I spelling out in Morse Code? In case you are curious too, it spells N A K A N. Wish I was clever enough to come up with something cool that stands for.
If you can come up with something clever and G-rated, let me know in the comments!
Of course, as with all Quiltmaker 100 Blocks blog tours, there’s a giveaway! I will randomly pick a winner from the comments Friday night at the end of the blog tour. The winner will be announced Saturday. If you have an email address linked to your comment, I will email you.
And check back because I will be giving away some copies of my new book when I get it from the printer whenever that is!
