Quiltmaker's 100 Blocks Vol. 13 - See Blocks Created by Kimberly & FQS Staff!

Hi everyone! Welcome back to the Jolly Jabber! We are thrilled to be a part of  Quiltmaker's 100 Blocks Vol. 13 Edition! We're so pleased that Kimberly's block and those of some of our quilty staffers were selected for publication.  Thanks, Quiltmaker!

 
Let's start with Kimberly's block! It's block # 1276 - the "Strawberry Patch" block on page 47. 
 
 
 
Kimberly used First Blush Fabric by Ruby Red Designs for Windham Fabrics. The fabrics work beautifully together, and the pinwheel shape has a fun sense of movement.

Added bonus inspiration: Here's the block set into a quilt layout!
For the Strawberry Patch Quilt, Kimberly's Strawberry Patch block got
supersized and paired up with Sherbet block by Alison Dale.
 
 
Nova's block, "Fly Away", is block # 1230, and appears on page 23.

Her lovely butterfly block, as it appears in the publication, was made with Calico Days fabric by Lori Holt for Riley Blake Designs. We're sharing another version with you here, above, made First Blush Fabric by Ruby Red Designs for Windham Fabrics. You can almost see these butterflies flitting from flower to flower!
 
 
Sarah's block, "Jolly Jack",  is block # 1290 and appears on page 55.

This fun block, as it appears in the publication, was made with Farmhouse fabric by Fig Tree Quilts and Bella Solids, both for Moda Fabrics. We're sharing another version with you here, above, made with Spooky Delights fabric by Bunny Hill Fabrics for Moda. This grinning pumpkin will add festive fun to quilts, table runners and treat bags alike!
 
 
Jocelyn's block, "Picnic Pinwheel", is block #1297 on page 58.
 
 
 
She used First Blush Fabric by Ruby Red Designs for Windham Fabrics.  This beautiful block brings to mind picnics, fresh air, buzzing bees and sunshine!
 
 
 
Added bonus inspiration: Here's the block set into a quilt layout!
Jocelyn combined Dana Followwell's Christmas Swirl block with her Picnic Pinwheel block. The fabrics shown in this quilt setting are Latitude Batiks by Kate Spain for Moda.
 
We hope you've enjoyed this peek at our FQS quilt blocks, some alternate quilt block versions, and some quilt settings.  Happy Quilting!

This is true confessions...when I saw Nova's block the first thing I saw was "coffee cups", my thoughts were--- oh, what sweet tea cups :)

I was surprised when I read the name "Fly Away", need less to say I was a wee perplexed.

It's now one of my favorites just because because of my optical illusion...

I'm probably the only one...right?

Oh I'm dying! So many cute blocks on one blog! Looks like pinwheels are really popular in this volume. I think I just gotta make all of FQS team's blocks. I shivered with delight, seeing the frosty version in Kate Spain's batiks.

When scanning the page, my eyes rested on that first block and I thought to myself that it made me think of strawberries. Then I read it's name! It's so much fun to be right on target once in a while.
