I’m so excited to share my block, Bachelor Buttons, with all of you and to participate in Quiltmaker’s 100 Blocks Blog Tour.
Imagine my surprise and delight when I saw Bachelor Buttons on the cover! Woo Hoo!!
I always have fun designing blocks for Quiltmaker’s 100 Blocks. I love playing with blocks and different fabrics … it becomes a bit of a obsession. One thing leads to another and before you know it … well … time flies when you’re having fun! Anyway, I started with the original colors and added borders.
I really like the clean, calm feel of this design. But why stop there? Why not use change it up a bit?
Yowsers! Did you notice how the dark purple frames the center of the block? One little change makes the block look sooooo different! With the holidays right around the corner, I had to try a red and green design ….
Stunning! Oh, dear … my bucket list just got longer! I hope you have fun playing with my Bachelor Button block, as well as the other 99 blocks. You can pick up a copy of 100 Blocks wherever magazines are sold or order a copy from Quiltmaker.
The 100 Blocks Blog Tour continues through November 20. Stop by all the blogs for inspiration, ideas, and giveaways galore!
Be sure to leave a comment on this post by 11:59 p.m. on Friday, November 20, and you’ll be entered in a drawing to win a copy of Quiltmakers 100 block, volume 12.
