100 Block Volume 5 Blog Hop!


We were very excited when the Quiltmaker girls contacted us to create a block for their 100 Blocks Issue! We just love these ladies! Plus they are local, so we get together from time to time for a fun lunch! In addition to the great collecter's issue full of 12" Blocks, the Quiltmaker girls also do a fun blog tour for the designers. Some of the designers, us included, will do a special blog about our block (this is it!) and a giveaway for lots of goodies! (enter below) Sue designed a fun block featuring her new 'Days of Yore' line she designed for RJR Fabrics. This block features the main character of the line, Thor! Here he is!


Here is an example of the block made up in different color ways and put together with a solid black background! All the little borders are RJR Handsprays and the outside border is part of the new 'Days of Yore' line Sue designed! Rotating the appliqued dragon around adds a little whimsical fun! This would be a great wall hanging in a bright kids room!

And now for the part everyone is waiting for... the FREE STUFF!!
We are doing a giveaway for a chance to win the magazine, patterns and 'Days of Yore' fabric that wont be in stores for months! We will have 3 total winners! 

  1. Grand Prize Winner: 'Days of Yore' Fat Quarter Bundle (including panel & soft book), New Whistlepig Patterns and Quiltmaker's 100 Blocks Vol. 5
