Quiltmaker's 1,000 Blocks: Week 2

My winner of the Quilter's Block a Day Calendar is Brenda A. of Oregon. Thanks to everyone who participated. Now let's see some other awesome blocks!

Like I said last week, I have been in this awesome magazine 4 times. Quiltmaker compiled 10 of the magazines for the 1,000 Blocks (very heavy) book. Last week I shared the first block (EZ Mariner's Compass). This week I want to share Flower Burst, which appeared in Volume 5 of Quiltmaker's 100 Blocks.

Let's see the cover:

And the block I made for this is called Flower Burst. I made it with a Benartex collection called Arianna.

And here's a 5 block quilt I made using my Flower Burst pattern. I love this quilt! But why only 5 blocks? I ran out of fabric and had to get creative.

  1. Hello Debbie! I am so excited to be the winner of the Quilters Block a Day Calendar!! Ideas of patterns and fabrics keep floating around and then when I start talking out loud to myself, my husband starts laughing at me and saying things like "You have not even gotten it yet!" But, I took the time and showed him some of Patricia's and he really liked quite a few of them. But also shook his head and said , "Are you planning on doing this?" I shrugged my shoulders and we both laughed!

    I adore the fabric for this Flower block. The varieties of pinks and browns are so gorgeous together! It is a combination that would never have occurred to me. Plus, I am not much of a pink person to begin with but I know I am going to try this fabric combination now that I have seen yours. Thank you so much once again for sharing all of your special talents! Have a great day!
