LARGE BLOCK QUILTS BLOG TOUR AND GIVEAWAY



GIVEAWAY IS NOW CLOSED!
A WINNER WILL BE ANNOUCED SHORTLY.
Welcome to my stop on the
Large Block Quilts Blog Tour!
 
 
 
 
My awesome friend,
has just released her first book,
Large Block Quilts.
 

There are 16 quilt designs in the book
and each one is made up of
super quick and easy large quilt blocks.
New quilters as well as seasoned quilters will appreciate
all of these quilts.
 
Each quilt is different
and would be perfect in just about any fabric line/fabric combination.
These are the perfect quilts
for digging into your fabric stash.
 
In fact,
I dug into my fabric stash and started making blocks
from my favorite quilt in the book:
 
 
For my version,
I chose these Moda fabrics from my stash:
 
 
It took me no time at all to cut
and piece this Quaint block together.


 

 
I love star quilt blocks
and
my favorite part of this block is
the center pinwheel peeking out of the larger star.
 
 
 
Super fun block!
 
Tomorrow is the last stop on the
Large Block Quilts Blog Tour.
Visit
to see what they created.
 
 
To win
a copy of
Vickie's book,
Large Block Quilts,
leave me a comment
and I will choose a winner
on Wednesday, May1.


****GIVEAWAY IS NOW CLOSED*****

 
I also dug into my archives
and I found this photo
of Vickie & I at Quilt Market:
 
 
(yikes...2011!)
 
Until Next Time...Happy Quilting

  12. I LOVE this book, there are so many ideas that pop into my mind for large blocks. I've never found a book with large blocks that I've liked. (I've only seen 1 book) My LQS doesn't have Vickie's book yet, hopefully soon. If I don't win, I've still got to get my claws on this book. ;-> Toni Anne
