Welcome To Quiltmaker's 100 Blocks Blog Tour!




I hope you're enjoying the Blog Tour as much as I am . . .

My block is: Groovy, block #633.




You can find it on page 38 of Quiltmaker's Summer 2013, Volume 7, 100 Blocks magazine (I LOVE this magazine!). The magazine will be on newsstands by May 7.

I was honored to be asked to make Amy Butler's Alchemy Quilt: her free PDF quilt on her website. Here is an image of the quilt I made, hanging in Amy's booth during Fall Market, 2012.

Quilt designed by David Butler, using Alchemy collection by Amy Butler for Westminster/Rowan


At that same time, I came up with this idea of using strips of her Alchemy fabric collection in an easy foundation paper piecing block and submitted it to Quiltmaker for their widely successful 100 Blocks series.



Are you enjoying the blog tour so far? I hope so!

I'm giving away 3 copies of the current 100 Blocks magazine (1 copy directly from Quiltmaker, 2 copies from me, and giving away more this summer!). To enter to win, please let me know what your favorite type of quilting is by leaving a comment, below:

Is it piecing? Or, perhaps, using a special method, such as foundation paper piecing or applique (hand or machine)?

AND . . .

I sure would love it if we became friends on Facebook or Twitter, follow my Facebook Fan Page, follow me on Pinterest (I've just switched my personal page over to my business page, so more quilt-related items will be coming!), or sign-up for my SuzGuz NuzLetter through my Contact Us page! I've met so many wonderful people across the country and around the world and you make such an important difference in my life! :)


Enjoy the blog hop! And thanks so much for stopping by!

I love your block, so well named. Thanks for sharing and the opportunity to win.

Sandra said...

Good name for your blocks. Just seems to be so appropriate. I am just a simple patchwork quilter. Sometimes it is scrappy; other times it is controlled. This blog tour just really entices you so much. So many talented designers; so many creative blocks. You really want to get motivated and start making these blocks. But, you need to win. Thank you for the chance to win a copy of QM 100 Blocks, Volume 7.

My favorite kind of quilting is when Lynn Buske comes to town and teaches a class. I come away with new skills & am refreshed with the glow of human loveliness after a day with Lynn, her exceptional daughter, Shelli, surrounded by their delightful quilting companions, delicious fabric & fine chocolate.

Catskill Quilter said...

I love your block! My favorite kind of quilts are those that combine piecing and applique,and if embellishments are added, even better!

groovy is really groovy, thank you.martamanole@yahoo.com

Suze said...

WOW! Great eye candy for inspiration. I love your block. Congrats on having it selected for the publication. I immediately recognized you as a "friend." I always adore your quilts in the magazines I purchase.
Now, as for me, I piece by machine most of the time. I do have a project for a hand pieced (not EPP) Grandmother's Flower Garden. The one my mother hand pieced and hand quilted was stolen and it had never been on my bed - long story. In things I acquired from her many stashes, I found a few pieced blocks, some cut and bagged blocks, and fabric definitely designated for the project. So, I hope to eventually "replace" that quilt.
Thank you for your generosity in the giveaway. I wil be follwing you - somewhere.

Lisa Marie said...

I enjoy everything about making quilts and I'm especially fond of paper piecing. Love your block!

banjo795 said...

I guess that my favorite method is plain old machine piecing. I'm not much of an applique girl, and I have never been successful with paper piecing. but I love watching how a block comes together from all the pieces.

Debbie Rhodes said...

love your block... I love applique... but anything that uses scraps grabs my attention too. thanks

What a fun block. I like piecing. I want to try paper-piecing but just have not found the right pattern and material yet.

tlcala4me said...

Still learning a lot of things, and haven't met a 'type' of block piecing that I didn't end up enjoying. I haven't done any curved piecing yet. And my first quilt is ready to be quilted, by me, as soon as I figure out how I want to do it.

Anonymous said...

Currently I am thrilled with hand-piecing small hexagons into grandmother's flower garden blocks. I cut my hexagons with a template and marked the seams and connect them with running stitch and find the process remarkably relaxing. Electrical tape is wonderful at protecting the skin on the fingers receiving the needle as you still need a degree of sensitivity to locate the needle whereas a normal thimble would not be effective. I am very grateful to yourself and all the quilters who share their techniques and are ready to teach others for it's such a lovely activity. :)grace55(at)hushmail(dot)com

I am still a beginner at quilting and as yet have only done piecing. I collected fabric for years, but waited until I retired last year to make my very first quilt. Whenever asked what I was going to do when I retired, the answer was QUILT, and that's what I'm doing. Well, actually what I'm mostly doing is piecing. I want to learn applique and paper piecing. Thanks for the chance to win!

Piecing gives me so much pleasure to watch cut pieces align and come together to make such beautiful designs. I also like the exactness of paper piecing.

I like your block! I'm always trying to use up scraps. I'm "in" for ANY raw edge quilt project: Rag quilts, Bull's Eye, floral. I also love to make chenille and t-shirt quilts. Guess my taste is more eclectic than I thought.

Amy said...

I love your block! My favorite type of piecing is traditional piecing, usually with tons of pieces, but paper piecing is a close second. I tend to switch back and forth in order to mix things up and not get in a rut. Thanks so much for creating beautiful new blocks for us to enjoy!
