Quiltmaker’s 100 Blocks Block #480

MooseQuilts
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!

    Hi…I’m a Navy Wife. LOVE the Morse Code linkage. But I think it actually spells NAK -NA
    The fourth strip matches the top one…not the second.
    Anyway – Nakna in Swedish means “NAKED”
    That’s pretty clever if you ask me!

    Sorry you don’t like turquoise. You must not have traveled to the SW and seen the real stuff and drooolllledddd. I have. If you want a stunner of a color combination, try turquoise (about the value you used), tomato red and magenta. Very powerful and striking. I like the simplicity of your block. Too early to unscramble Morse Code at this hour. I like the name of your blog as well.
