Quiltmaker's 100 Blocks Volume 7

Today it is time to share my block on the Quiltmaker's 100 Blocks Volume 7 Blog Tour!  (Check out their blog too because there are more giveaways there, in addition to the one below.)



Here is a sneak peek of  my block, "Lollipop, Lollipop!"  I pieced it in Bella right after receiving yardage this past fall from Blend Fabrics.

Lollipop, Lollipop in Bella

But now I think it might be fun to sew up a block in Holiday Bouquet...

Lollipop, Lollipop in Holiday Bouquet


Or maybe Bonjour, Mon Ami?

Lollipop, Lollipop in Bonjour, Mon Ami

Quiltmaker's 100 blocks Volume 7 will be on newsstands on May 7th, and Quiltmaker is allowing me to giveaway an issue!  I'm also going to throw in a beautiful fat quarter bundle of Michael Miller Red and Aqua fabrics. I used these fabrics in a quilt in Modern Holiday called Crossroads that recently put in an appearance at Quilt Con with C&T Publishing.  I've been cutting up and assembling bundles for giveaways at my two Schoolhouses at market and I have an extra!


(If you are at Market I'll be doing an 11:35 Schoolhouse on Thursday with C&T Publishing to talk about Modern Holiday and another at 3:10 for Brewer Sewing to talk about Modern Quilting.  Please come visit!)

To enter leave a comment telling me which of the above versions of  "Lollipop, Lollipop" you like best.  One entry per person please and make sure to leave me a way to contact you should you win.  The deadline will be this Sunday the 5th at midnight.  Note: This giveaway is now closed.

Happy sewing!
Amanda

Love your blocks! The different lines give them very different looks! If I had to pick one it would be Holiday Bouquet, only cause they look like ornaments :)

I love Bella fabric, but in Lollipop is not very bold. I prefer Lollipop, Lollipop in Bonjour, Mon Ami for quilt.

I like the holiday bouquet. The green really makes it pop

 
At May 3, 2013 at 2:53 AM , Blogger Pat said...

You have made this very hard to answer. If I really had to make a decision I guess I would have to go with Bonjour, Mon Ami. I love the prints.

At May 3, 2013 at 5:10 AM , Blogger Theresa Litz said...

Cute block! I think my favorite is Lollipop, Lollipop in Bonjour, Mon Ami. Personally, I favor the higher contrast of the fabrics in this collection versus the others. Having said that, I can see this block being adorable in numerous different fabrics...even bright solids that would remind me of the big jaw breaker round lollipops, like Bubblegum Pink, Orange Tangerine, Blueberry and Kiwi green...the possibilities are endless! :) :)

I love this block! I like the Bella version, but I think it would be a lot of fun in small prints, or even solids, so the star in the center would really stand out. Thanks for the chance to win.

You have done it again by giving us another fantastic block. It is so very hard to pick just one favorite because I love all of them that you have shown us. On top of that, I think this block of yours is going to look great in red and aqua colors. I just love those colors. So pretty and yet so striking. Thank you for being a part of QM 100 Blocks, Volume 7 tour and giving us all a chance to win. I always enjoy my visits to your blog. There is always something fun to do and you are one busy quilter indeed.

I like them all, but because I have a weak spot for Christmas fabric, I'm going with Holiday Bouquet. Love your block.

I think it would be Bonjour Mon Ami but the Holiday Bouquet is very nice too. Love the little star in the center! Thanks for the chance to win.

Definitely the Holiday Bouquet, but I've been thinking ahead about Xmas presents, some of which will be pillow covers, and I think this would make a great holiday pillow cover!

I've been going back and forth trying to decide which Lollipop, Lollipop is my favorite. I'm going to cast my vote for Bonjour, Mon Ami because it is elegant and the color combinations are peaceful and soothing. Thank you for such a beautiful block.

Holiday Lollipop would be my favorite and I love your Blossoms pattern I found on your blog.

I like the Bonjour Mon Ami because the lollipops show up better.

Bonjour, Mon Ami!
Congratulations on your block being selected for Volume 7 of Quiltmaker's 100 Blocks. It is very pretty and versatile too. Thanks for the chance to win some of your lovely fabric too. I like all the selections so was a difficult choice.

 
At May 3, 2013 at 1:39 PM , Blogger Kathy Sue said...

Love your block and although I love the colors of the Bella fabric line, your block shows much better in Bonjour, Mon Ami with the contrast that fabric affords. Thanks for a chance to win.

 
At May 3, 2013 at 1:41 PM , Blogger Donna Cutting said...

Bella is gorgeous fabric, but with your lollipop block we could show of our favorite fabrics. I see polka dots in your Michael Miller fabrics. My soon to be daughter in law loves polka dots.

At May 3, 2013 at 1:57 PM , Blogger Mom who loves to sew said...

This is not fair.....we can only pick
one? If that's the case I guess I would have to say Holiday Bouquet. I love the way the contrasting fabrics really show off the design of the block. They are all truly beautiful...great job.

They are all pretty but my favorite one is the Holiday block. Great block!

I like your block. The Holiday Bouquet is my favorite version. Of course, I have to say the combination of red and aqua fabrics is the colors that I always seem drawn to use. Made a quilt in those colors for Quiltmaker's 2011 Scrap Squad and have always thought it was special. Your fabric bundle looks great!

Quiltmaker's 100 Blocks Volume 7

Today it is time to share my block on the Quiltmaker's 100 Blocks Volume 7 Blog Tour!  (Check out their blog too because there are more giveaways there, in addition to the one below.)



Here is a sneak peek of  my block, "Lollipop, Lollipop!"  I pieced it in Bella right after receiving yardage this past fall from Blend Fabrics.

Lollipop, Lollipop in Bella

But now I think it might be fun to sew up a block in Holiday Bouquet...

Lollipop, Lollipop in Holiday Bouquet


Or maybe Bonjour, Mon Ami?

Lollipop, Lollipop in Bonjour, Mon Ami

Quiltmaker's 100 blocks Volume 7 will be on newsstands on May 7th, and Quiltmaker is allowing me to giveaway an issue!  I'm also going to throw in a beautiful fat quarter bundle of Michael Miller Red and Aqua fabrics. I used these fabrics in a quilt in Modern Holiday called Crossroads that recently put in an appearance at Quilt Con with C&T Publishing.  I've been cutting up and assembling bundles for giveaways at my two Schoolhouses at market and I have an extra!


(If you are at Market I'll be doing an 11:35 Schoolhouse on Thursday with C&T Publishing to talk about Modern Holiday and another at 3:10 for Brewer Sewing to talk about Modern Quilting.  Please come visit!)

To enter leave a comment telling me which of the above versions of  "Lollipop, Lollipop" you like best.  One entry per person please and make sure to leave me a way to contact you should you win.  The deadline will be this Sunday the 5th at midnight.  Note: This giveaway is now closed.

Happy sewing!
Amanda
