Welcome to the Quiltmaker’s 100 Blocks Volume 8 blog tour! This is my third time participating and it is so much fun. My block Spring Snowflake appeared in the very first issue of 100 Blocks and the quilt Snow Blossoms was featured on the cover of Quilts from Quiltmaker’s 100 Blocks. Earlier this year, Volume 7 included my block Capstone and the quilt Roundabout was raffled at the IQA Celebrity Silent Auction.
It is my very great pleasure to present my block for Volume 8: Fiddleheads. It is block #718 on page 30.
Four Fiddleheads blocks placed closely together create an interesting secondary pattern, especially if placed on a different background.
They also look nice set on point with a thin sashing and an alternating four-patch block.
Repeating the center motif in the four-patch blocks adds interest…
… and repeating the swirls in the borders adds even more!
Now for the fun part – the prizes! To enter your name in the draw to win a copy of Quiltmaker’s 100 Blocks Volume 8, leave a comment below by midnight Friday, November 15th with your favorite instrument in the quilt Instruments of Praise.
