The Hundred

May 3, 2013
Fabric Cuts
Giveaway Winners Announced Below


I cut  patches from one square of fabric and used wide sashing. These blocks were meant to float. The quilt is pictured in the magazine and  will be on view this summer at Quiltmaker
I cut into this bright Liberty floral.  After all, what am I saving it for?
I'd like to give a 14" square of this fabric with someone who'd like to piece the Quadrangle block
Giveaway #1
Please comment below by 12:01 AM , Monday, May 6th, New York time, telling me where you live and what you're sewing these days. A winner will be randomly selected. I'll send the fabric square to you while Quiltmaker will send volume 7 to you.

I learned this morning that today is George Clooney's 52nd birthday so Celeste of Wausaukee who posted the 52nd comment  is awarded  Giveaway #1. Celeste please get in touch with me  by Wednesday at noon with your address otherwise this giveaway must go to the runner up, Margaret, of Arkansas, who made the 53rd comment. I'm thinking +1 for the extra birthday candle. I've enjoyed the comments and hope you have as well. Thank you for sharing yourselves.
Giveaway #2
I create my favorite blocks from squares (only) of fabric.  If  I make two blocks, I need two squares of fabric. 100 blocks calls for 100 squares of fabric. I teach this method and so much more in my online Craftsy class. Traditional Blocks Made Simple. One extended lesson is Anita's Arrowhead, previously patterned in Quiltmaker  Included in the class is my Rotary Cutting Revolution eBook, a $14.99 value in itself.
Craftsy is providing my class and eBook as a giveaway to celebrate the 100 Blocks Blog Tour.  They're in Colorado. Quiltmaker is in Colorado. Both too cool for words.

Billie in Austin won the Craftsy class with the included eBook. I'd be remiss if I didn't direct you to another site to win my Craftsy class.  C&T Publishing's blog has that and more in a giveaway to be awarded on May 9th.  I'm off  to Michigan later this week to teach, after the winners have been chosen. And I'm working on a new-to-me tessellated block made from... squares of fabric.

Good Luck to you,
Anita

Great looking block Anita. I'm in Northern IL. Right now I'm working on some summer clothes for my Granddaughter and just got an idea today of something to machine embroider for my MIL for Mother's Day which will end up being a small quilted wall hanging. I'm not sure I'll have the time to get that done and shipped off to her but we'll see.

You have really outdone yourself with the giveaways. Wow. I have to say I have had your Craftsy clsas on my wish list for awhile now. It looks like a great class.

Of course, I like in cool Colorado, east of Denver where Craftsy does all their great work. I just finished an original twister design and now I am trying "modern quilts" with a quilted pillow to match a quilt I made for my daughter and her DH. I can always make a block between things!

Hi Anita, long time fan of your style of quilting. Would like to have a little of your flair for the dramatic .. so will keep watching and hope some will rub off. Current project is drawstring pointe-shoe bag in white handkerchief linen for a dancer niece with delicate embroidered outline design of shoes and roses on the front. The interior of the design is lightly coloured with fabric pencils(looks effective on the linen) The bag has a tiny hexagon pieced and quilted base in pale pink, white linen and green with a pistachio green fine silk piping and the drawstring is in a pale apricot silk tie which has a fabric and silk rose bud stitched over each end. Our neck of the woods in Australia is just beginning to experience relief after a very long hot summer, a very welcome change.. the garden looks relieved too:) grace(at)amnet(dot)net(dot)au

Your work always fascinates me. You are so darned clever.
I live in central Missouri and am currently pressing, cutting battings, and hunting down backings and such for several items including potholders, a table runner, a wallhanging and two lap-size quilts, so I can layer them and get to machine quilting them. It's finish-up time for several projects!

Kathy said...

All I can say is WOW! Love your block and the way it floats! I live in Washington state and currently have about 7 projects in various stages of completion. I keep saying 'no more' but then see something else that draws me!
