Quiltmaker’s 100 Blocks

100 Blocks Cover

Last week I got some really exciting mail. This is the latest issue of Quiltmaker’s 100 Blocks (vol 5). It is a collection of patterns for 100 different quilt blocks, designed by various quilters/designers/bloggers. When I was flipping through the magazine, I recognized a lot of names and I’m sure you will too. So…not only am I super happy to tell you I have a block in this issue – but look, that’s my name on the cover! (Right by my good friend Lee!) In case you are wondering, that’s me, Faith Jones. :)

100 Blocks Me!

My block is called Diamond Mine and is #474 inside the magazine. They had us sign our name on the actual block which I have never done before. I kept thinking “Really? Write my name ON the block?” Despite all my elementary teachers’ best efforts, I just have horrible handwriting. You can see it in the bottom pink section.

And here is the block at my house before I mailed it off…

When I was designing the quilt block, I mocked up a couple of ways you can layout your blocks for a quilt top.

This issue of Quiltmaker’s 100 Blocks officially goes on sale May 8th. I hope you will check it out at your local bookstore or craft store!

    It’s a great block Faith, congratulations. I think writing on fabric is hard too and I would have freaked about having to do that!

    My buttons are popping off for you! What an honor, and to think I knew you before you became famous. Or did I?…. I am smiling just for you! Gonna buy the magazine — I didn’t realize until today that it was a series of magazines.

    Congratulations! What an exciting day you had! It must be a special treat to see your name on a publication that isn’t a bill! (HA HA!) Love the pattern and the fabrics are such a happy combination.

    Congratulations! I’m going to have to look for that, now! Your block is lovely, and so is your signature. You should see mine — I’m sure if my handwriting was every analyzed, they’d lock me up as a serial killer for sure! ;-)

    I like the block layout on the right. That would be a nice quilt. I don’t think I can purchase the magazin over here but I like looking at yor block.

    I love your block! Amazing color choices too. : ) And I had to laugh when you talked about signing your name on the block … I seriously sat with the pen poised over the fabric for like 5 minutes before I got up the nerve to WRITE on my block! Fortunately I used lots of dark fabric so it’s hard to see my sloppy signature. LOL.
