Quiltmaker's 100 Blocks Blog Tour - GIVEAWAY CLOSED

Hi everybody! Welcome to Day 1 of Quiltmaker's 100 Blocks Blog Tour! We are making happy noises over the newest issue, Volume 9. In here are three awesome and very different blocks, from three of us here at Fat Quarter Shop & It's Sew Emma.


They are: #850 A Whale of a Block by Debbie,  #851 Flower Child by Jocelyn, and #875 Robo-Bop by Kimberly. Each has real personality and potential! Debbie's block even made the cover!

We are devising ideas for settings... scaling up Debbie's block for an adorbs nautical nursery wall hanging. Pairing Flower Child with big 12" squares from Jeni Baker's new Dreamin' Vintage for a quick quilt bursting with juicy colors. Robo-Bop would make fun pillows, bags, and bed quilt for a mechanically-minded child.

Hop on the block bandwagon and see what other 100 Blocks designers have in store for you! Visit the Quiltmaker blog to see the full line up, plus chances to win some great prizes.


Just in case you were wondering, Robo-Bop was made with Mixed Bag, Flower Child with Color Me Retro, and A Whale of a Block with dots from various collections. For instructions, you'll need a copy of Volume 9 of Quiltmaker's 100 Blocks.



One winner from this post today will win their very own copy of the 100 Blocks Vol. 9 issue, so comment below and tell us your ideas for these blocks! What fabrics and what settings - we want to hear it all! The winner will be announced on Monday, May 5. Good luck!

UPDATE -- the giveaway is now closed. Our winner of the 100 Blocks copy is Karrie S.!

Loving the blocks! I think the middle would look great with Dreamin' Vintage as well. The Whale and Robot would be good in metallics. Navy for the whale and Silver/gray for the robot. Or maybe a scrappy robot. Thanks for the chance to win ;)

The whale block is so stinking cute! I think it would look so cute scaled up into a crib size quilt. You could even add a few jumping fish and a ship! I could see the robot becoming an awesome toddler or twin size quilt. And the flower block would look great as a mega size one block quilt.

Pat V. said...

All three of these are great! I'd like to combine the robot with a rocket ship block and a couple of others for a great little boy quilt.

Linda said...

I'd like to use the whale bock as a centrepiece of a cushion for my sister.

Lynne Tilley said...

I'd love the whale block as a pillow for my new grandson

Hildy said...

The blocks are great! I would use the flower child block with lots of reds and whites fabrics.

Sarah F said...

Truly original blocks - not just the same old, same old. Love the whale block, set as a medallion in Storm at Sea block using dirty blues, greys and greens of Moda Bella Solids

Lynn McIndoe said...

I can see Kimberley's block being used for my 3 year old Grandson. Robots are so cool in his world. A quilt of an army of them would be so cute and treasured.

Monica said...

I love the whale block for anything in a nautical themed nursery!

Mary said...

Adorable Blocks you all made for Volume 9. Glad to have the Blour Tour starting today! I hope to WIN a copy.

Kathy S. said...

A Whale of a Block is adorable! I think it would look great with some fish blocks.

Betsy said...

Since I am making nursery items for my first grandson due in September, that whale of a block would be awesome as a wall display wrapped in canvas

Anne D said...

Robo bop would make a great baby quilt!
thanks for the chance to win the magazine.

Deb said...

My favorite is the whale block to make a blue little boy quilt. I'd use any of Moda's lines that would match up - maybe some of Camille's April Showers line.

Podunk Pretties said...

Super cute! The robot would be great for a quilt for my grandson.

Susan Smith said...

That whale block is sooo cute! I'd probably use April Showers to make that.

Laura B said...

I'd use some kind of watery/wavy print to make the whale block.

Krysta said...

I love the robot block! It is fabulous for all ages.

Lisa Marie said...

Wonderful blocks! I would make Flower Child in a totally scrappy version with careful placement of darks and lights. The other two would make great children's quilts. For the whale block, I would make it in a larger size, maybe 18" inches square and let it be a feature block. For the robot, I would make a row of robot blocks and make the rest of the quilt scrappy.

curious said...

I love to make traditional blocks using today's modern fabrics. So much fun and a really nice look too. Paula. K

Sigi G said...

I especially love the whale block and I think would make a 'few' in the centre of a baby quilt for a little boy!

Vicki H said...

My grandson would like the robot. I would make it a pillow or small wall hanging.

Jeanie said...

Love the robot block! I'd make a small wall hanging. Thanks for the giveaway!

DebrafromMD said...

I love the whale block! And I can see the robot being super sized to make a quilt top for a small child.

acoelke said...

The robot block would be great for my eight year old grandson. Definitely need to use blues in the color palate since that's his favorite color. Some red and black accents as well perhaps.

Crafty Tokyo Mama said...

The whale block would make a lovely side for a stuffed baby block!

Susie'sfun2 said...

Jeneta said...

Three great blocks! They are completely different but each is so exciting.

Doreen Gabe said...

I need to make a new grandson quilt. The robot design by Kimberly Einmo is calling my name!

Heidi [Banks of Frog Creek] said...

Looks like a great boy's quilt!

Dana Gaffney said...

Great blocks! I really like the whale and robot since they would be wonderful for boy's quilts, I'm always looking for boy ideas. The robot would make a great center for a quilt.

SueQ said...

I would make the whale block into a child's quilt and offer it as a sample for my local quilt shop.

Debbie said...

I would do a lap quilt with robot for my brother robber he collects robots

Dee said...

I find Jo's patriotic block amazing and would do a quilt for our military men out of it.

dolores said...

Ack! So stinking cute! I think all three of them would be great fronts for tote bags....what new mom and dad wouldn't love a diaperbag with the whale on the front?:)

Carol said...

I can sure see the whale block and the robo-bop in children's quilts. I think the colors you have chosen are great, but the color scheme of the quilt could match the child's room too. Thanks for sharing!

Robyn said...

That whale block is just too cute! I can see that on baby quilts.

Jeneta said...

I think the robo-bop block would look great in bright Kona solids!

Doris Rice said...

My head is spinning, I have no idea what my plans might be for these blocks but you can bet I'll use them! Really love the flower child block. I can see that in some 70's print. Grandson will want something from the robo-bop.

Helen said...

I would use nine A Whale of a Blocks for a baby quilt to represent an entire pod.

Jill said...

I see I am not the only one that loves the whale block. What a cute baby quilt that would make....pink whales for girls and blues for boys....or why not use a variety of small prints for either. Just too cute!!

Auntie Clark said...

I would like to use the Whale of a block like you suggested, in a baby quilt. Thanks for all of your wonderful ideas.

Purl Buttons said...

Great blocks! I would use the WHALE as part of a row quilt. Maybe the very top with lots of sea creatures below.

Jeannette said...

I like Flower Child. I think it would make in Kaffe Fassett fabrics and maybe some of his shot cloth intermingled.

Patti said...

The kid-themed blocks will be great for Quilts for Kids!

Mary on Lake Pulaski said...

Flower child would be very pretty in Anna Maria Horner's Dowry!

Dianne Bienick said...

Make "jumbo sized" versions of each for a stunning baby quilt.

Dianne

Kathleen OGrady said...

I really like the whale and robot blocks. I would make some pillows with these blocks, they are so cute!

Kelly Wilson said...

Flower Child with Dreamin'Vintage is a great pair. The block looks very versatile - I bet it would be great with solids every other block on a large quilt or set off center and staggered down the front of a quilt.
Thanks for the opportunity!

Karin said...

My boys would love RoboBop, but I want to make Flower Power for my mom's quilt!

Robin Johnson said...

The whale is so adorable and fresh. The second one looks challenging and the robot would make a cute door hanging for a boy.

Anita Gambrell said...

I adore the whale of a block ! I may just be looking for some perfect materials for this quilt for my Gboys. Boy quilts are always harder to find the really cute one anyhow ! Thank you !

suz said...

all 3 blocks are wonderful - I'm definitely making the whale - just a simple wall hanging - for my newly teenaged great-niece - she just redid her bedroom and it will be perfect! I'm going to want to play with the Flower Child block because it definitely will create interesting secondary designs. As for Robo-Bop, well my son is grown, but the relationship he's in now is getting serious, so I might be able to use that in the not too distant future!

Dee said...

I love a whale of a block. this would be a perfect grandbaby quilt

Paula Robinson said...

My 1st Blog Hope:) My fav block has to be the robot! I have a 2 yr old grandson who loves robots! Can't wait to win this issue so I can make him his own robot quilt;)

SarahZ said...

Such cute blocks! I would make a cushion out of the flower power block, a crib quilt with the whale...and maybe a playmat with the robo bop, and some other fun little blocks :)

Allison said...

I love the whale block. It would be cute in a child's room with an ocean theme.

Patti said...

Vicki B said...

Love the whale block. Would be great as a center medallion.

giddy99 said...

A Giant Robot Block in Metallics would be awesome!

Debi Horne said...

these blocks are so cute. The whale block would look good with the Bartholo-Meow, using the deep water waverly or seafoam for the water. the flower child would look cute with the 30's Playtime or A Quilter's Garden. the robot is probably a lot of little boy's idea of excitment. I'd pair that with Space or Rocket Age.

Thanks for the chance.

GranChris said...

Flower Child has me fascinated.i think it would look great in so many collections, especially those that have a lot of contrast

AnnieK said...

I'm seeing Flower Child, done in yellow, sage, and turquoise shades, as cushions on my couch :-)

Nita said...

Wouldn't it be cute to alternate the whale block with sailboat blocks? :)

gigi said...

Alternate the whale block with sail boats and plain ocean wave blocks. Cute!

P Bybee said...

I'd make a whale of a block bigger so it can be a baby quilt! It's so adorable! Flower child seems like it will be great with blue, red and white fabric for patriotic theme (4th of july is coming, wink wink)

Oh my gosh! These blocks are too cute! Congrats!

Kathy L said...

These would all be good for kids quilts done in bright colors. Thanks for the chance to win.

Marti Taylor said...

Such fun blocks! My oldest has a fascination with both robots and ocean life so I can foresee pairing the whale block with an anchor block to make an ocean quilt. The robot would be perfect to create a tote to carry all her creations!

Angelia Lanouette said...

All three blocks are amazing! The robo-bop would make a great pillow for a little boy. The whale block..my favorite..would be great with other blocks just like it but with other sea creatures like dolphins, birds, fish, octopus or even a boat. A great baby quilt!

Jennifer said...

These are my fav magazines - tons of quilty inspirations!

Sandy said...

The Whale of a Block is such a clever block variation. It would make such a cute quilt for a child. Thanks for the giveaway opportunity.

delaineelliott said...

All of the blocks are spectacular! I would make several of the the Flower Child block in Christmas colors and put them together to make a table runner. Thanks!

Anita said...

The blocks would be great together with solid blocks in a quilt for children.

Cecilia said...

I love the whale block made up in either pink or blue gingham or dots by Riley Blake. The robot block would be great for a young boy using bright Kona solids. Thanks for the chance to win a copy of the magazine,

Sheila said...

Great blocks , I know my grandson would love a quilt of robots , so cute . Thanks for the chance .

Diane said...

The whale block is really cute. I have an unfinished round robin that needs some more work. It has an ocean theme, and adding the whale block to it would just finish it off.

Karen Malone said...

Three great blocks! Bright whales could combine with sailboats for a beautiful baby quilt. I would love to make the flower block in reds, blacks and whites, and coloring the rectangles the same as the center triangles would make a strong diagonal pattern across the quilt. The robot together with maybe rockets and stars would be brilliant for a young boy. You guys are awesome!

Quilting Tangent said...

The whale block, could go into a sea/beach themed quilt or a pillow or bag. The flower - pillow. The robo-bop - bag to hold robot or other small toys. 24Tangent@gmail.com

Josie McRazie said...

I love the whale! I think he would be cute with a few 'fish' added around him! I just love the 100 block books! So much to choose from! Thanks for sharing!

Robot Pillows for the grandsons bed

SewCalGal said...

Woo hoo. Congratulations on your blocks being included in Volume 9. All of them are lovely.

As I'm a beachy type person, I'm drawn to the whale block. Would love to create a quilt with several of these blocks and some negative space for free-motion quilting of swirls.

All are adorable, but my heart belongs to whales! ;-)

Lori L said...

They are all so cute. I would do them all scrappy and combine them all in a kids snuggle quilt. Thanks for the giveaway.

Sorcha girl said...

The Robo-bop would be great as an accent pillow for my grandson's room. He loves to build things with Legos and his Erector set. Thanks for the info about the newest Quiltmaker magazine.

selleck said...

While I was looking at the cover I thought it would be fun to make all 100 and sew them together ramdomly. I'll try to use colors as close to the samples as I can.

Sherry said...

The whale block would be so great repeated in a 9 patch with sashing in a baby boy quilt. I would enlarge the robot for the center of a medallion quilt surrounded by very bright colors. The flower block would be great to add colorful borders for a table topper or wall hanging.

Kathy Sue said...

These are adorable. I love all three. kathleendotlutzatcomcastdotnet

Dorene Abel said...

I would use the whale block in my under sea quilt I am making for my oceanographer friend who is ill.

Cat said...

I love the whale block - it would be perfect to go with all of the fish/underwater fabrics that I have been collecting. Thanks for the opportunity.

Sarah said...

I would use the whale block in a seaworld theme sampler, probably in the same colors as here. The robot block I would use in black, green and yellow for my son's room! With the flower block, I guess I'd color the different sections like a flower; yellow in the middle, pink for the petals and green and blue around; I'd use it for cushions for my daughters' room. sarah@forrussia.org

Peggy said...

I like all your blocks, but I'm partial to the robot block. It would make a cute kid's quilt.

Jill Hicks said...

I am going to have to make Robo-bop for my grandson. He loves robots. The other blocks are cute too.

TheStylishHome said...

The Whale block stole my heart. I'm going to say that since I'm from Cape Cod originally, that's just natural selection :) I'm thinking that if you blew it up and mixed in a few other nautical type things, you would have an awesome shower curtain! Or.... perhaps, have some under the sea stuff going on and then the whale at the top...... hmmmm, but baby quilt!

JoyceLM said...

Cute blocks. I'd combine the whale block with boat blocks & fishu blocks to make a cute baby/child quilt. Thanks.

JANET said...

Such cute blocks. The whale would be cute with starfish, dolphins, etc around it. The robo-bop with planets, glow in the dark stars, rockets with flames.

all blocks are cute...it happen that right now I am looking for marine life blocks....thank you....marta...martamanole@yahoo.com

I want to do a baby quilt with the whale in minkee or other soft fabric, with the rest of the quilt in cottons. Maybe use prairie points for the waves for more texture.

Sue Hook said...

I love the whale block. It would be so cute with lattace nine patch squares.

Susan L. said...

First of all, congrats ladies on having your blocks published in Quiltmaker’s 100 Blocks Volume 9! I think all 3 blocks would look great in a variety of projects, from runners to bed quilts. What little boy or girl wouldn’t love their own quilt with the whale or Robo-Bop?! The Flower Child block would be great runner, or lap quilt, for a Mother’s Day gift too!

Quilting Revolution said...

LOVING the Flower Child block! Looks like a great block to use darks and lights and go scrappy! Thank you for the opportunity to win an issue!

Lee said...

I love the whale of a block! I would be a great block for a quilt for our cottage! thanks!

Joanna said...

That whale is too loveable; really cute. Any child would probably love a quilt with the whale or the robot. They would make cute throw pillows for a kid's room as well.

Carmen N said...

Awww ... I love the whale block. I whole baby quilt made up of those would be adorable!

Anonymous said...

All 3 blocks are wonderful! I can see the whale block in beachy fabrics. I can see it as a wall hanging when I find a place near the ocean. Thanks for a chance to win a copy of the magazine. I look forward to this magazine every year and enjoy the Blog hop. sandi1100 at yahoo dot com

BizyStitches said...

This is going to be a fun tour. Thanks for putting my name in the drawing. All 3 are really cute and I have enough stash that I wouldn't have to find new fabrics. Pillows, baby quilts, lap quilts, table toppers, endless ways to use these blocks

Happy Cottage Quilter said...

Very cool blocks. They would make a great focus for a child's quilt. Thanks!

grammygwendolyn said...

Your whale block is so cute! Have no ideas, I usually have to think about things for a couple of weeks before they come together.

Slice of Pi said...

I'd love to make a jumbo version of Whale of a Block as a baby quilt. I'd move the whale to be off-center, slightly in the bottom right corner. Thanks for the chance!

Anne said...

I'd try Flower Child with the blocks rotated so the blue forms a big check pattern.

~Kris~ said...

I love all 3 blocks. I think the whale would be cute with some alternating ship blocks or some goldfish.

Allison C said...

The whale block would make cute wall art stretched over canvas

Becky Rabalais said...

Flower Power would make a great tote bag. Many thanks for sharing your designs!

Amy DeCesare said...

All cute, but the whale block is super sweet and my favorite. I would love to see it in a bit larger size, repeated about 16 times, with whales only appearing in about 5 of the blocks...the remaining blocks made up in only triangles. I can just picture it!

Annie said...

I'm wondering if the whale block could be combine with some ocean wave blocks for an entire water themed quilt?

Pink Scissors Design said...

My nephews would like the Robo-bop. I would make a quilt and use some bright/neon colors.

I want to make the VW bus because we had one when I was a kid. I would make it in orange and white and make it as a pillow for my parent's motor home.

The whale block is my fave block of the three. It would look fun sized up a bit for a wall hanging in one of my grandchildren's rooms. I think some textured solids would be fun. Thanks!

denisew said...

What little boy would not like a whale block quilt!

WhoMom said...

The whale block makes my day and could be set right in the middle of a storm at sea type quilt. The flower child could be made larger into a baby quilt, or with many more of it's own block and then churn dash style. The robot is wonderful and needs to me on the front of a messenger bag. Those are my opinions of the moment...changeable at any time!

I think the whale for younger ones, and the robot for a little older child and Flower Power for any child of the 60's or 70's.

All are great!

I can see the robot block in bold colors with scrappy sashes in a small quilt for a little kid needing an extra hug.

MaryBeth Little said...

I love traditional blocks the most. Thanksfor sharing.

banjo795 said...

I think the robot block would be great in a little boy quilt. The whale block is really creative - I love how it looks like he's halfway in the water. And the flower power block reminds me of the sixties, it would look great in a psychedelic quilt. I'm not sure what fabrics I'd use for any of them yet, but I'll know when I see it!

Embroidered a 3-D robot book for my nephew recently and the addition of a pillow with the robot would be perfect.

I like the whale block and would use it in a nautical themed quilt I want to make for my grandson. I have some water print fabric to simulate the ocean, so of course the whale will go there.

These are great blocks. I can see them incorporated into a child's quilt. The "flower child" block made me think '60s so that one would be great in something retro. Thanks for a chance at the give-away!

Each one is absolutely adorable and would, of course, make a great quilt. I happen to think they each would be cute as a panel on a bag. I think they would also be darling on a bib type apron. Thank you for this giveaway.

I like all three but I think I will file the flower child in my ideas file for some of those teals I have.

My sister is an ocean geek so I see A Whale of A Block on a tote for her. And I'm into table runners so flower child will be perfect for that. Can't wait to get my hands on Vol. 9.

I liked all the blocks. I love to use quilt blocks when teaching geometry. I used cardboard then but have just started quilting in material.
