I am soooo excited that my block, Rainbow Star, is in Quiltmaker’s 100 Blocks, volume 10! Just think 10 issues of 100 blocks … WOW! And, I’m happy to say I’ve had a block in every issue!
I always love playing with different fabrics and colors. Change the colors to red, white and blue and you get a great patriotic looking star perfect for a Quilts of Valor or to celebrate the 4th of July.
When designing blocks, I always want to see how they will look in a quilt design. Occasionally, I design a block that I think is fantastic on it’s own, but when I use the block to create a quilt … well … it doesn’t make a GREAT quilt design. So, every block has to pass the quilt test.
Setting the Rainbow Star blocks with sashing and black sashing squares creates a terrific design!! I love the secondary Nine Patch blocks. Oh dear, one more quilt to add to my bucket list. Pair Rainbow Star with a second block and … WOW!
In Volume 10, you’ll not only find 100 terrific Blocks, but there’s also a pattern for a Stellar Sampler quilt. You’re sure to enjoy this new collection of blocks, as well as, the Designer Gallery and the Block Tester Gallery.
The 100 Blocks Blog Tour continues through November 21. Stop by all the blogs for inspiration, ideas and giveaways galore!
