Quiltmaker’s 100 Blocks, Vol. 13 Blog tour





I am so excited to have a block in this Quiltmaker’s 100 Blocks Vol. 13.   and to be a part of this blog tour. This is the second time I have been in magazine but my first time to be a part of the Blog tour.

My Block is called “Sherbet,” I named it that because of the colors of the fabric.  They reminded me of orange and lime sherbets. The fabric I used is “Tucker Prairie” by One Canoe Two.



When you repeat my block it makes a fun secondary pattern. 



If alternate the colors in the blocks it gives you a totally different look.


 You can win a copy of Quiltmaker’s 100 Block Vol. 13. Just leave a comment and I will pick a winner on Sunday May 8th.
For even more giveaways and more chances to win a copy of the magazine be sure to check out the Quilty Pleasures Blog.  You can find links to all the other designers participating in the hop.  Good Luck.

Happy Quilting
Alison
