  1. Wow, thanks, what a great givaway! I always struggle to find a block that I like/is easy and this is jammed full of wonderful ones πŸ™‚

  2. I am getting my sewing room back soon since one son is moving out. I would love this magazine to get inspiration to start anew. Thank you for this opportunity.


  3. It took a while for me to buy volume 1, but I think I'll be looking for v2 as soon as it hits the news stands. Your block looks cool, I'd love to see it in a quilt.

  4. Ilove your blog and this blog tour is going to be fun!! The magazine looks like a great one.

  5. I'm sure this will be another great 100 Blocks magazine. I have the first one and definitely plan on purchasing the second one when it arrives.

  6. This magazine looks awesome, I can't wait to get my hands on one. Love Kimberly's block, and that fat quarter bundle. Great job.

  7. I love the first Quilmaker 100 blocks that came out and it has TWO personal friends in it…I see a few more friends in this next issue and just have to get my hands on a copy!! Congrats on both block and BABY!

  8. Congrats on being part of this issue. The last one was fantastic and this looks to be even better, if that's possible!

  9. I can not wait for this issue! I just bought a digital version of last year's magazine – where was I when it was out???? What a great giveaway – hope I win (fingers crossed!!)

  10. That would be so marvy to get a 100 Blocks magazine for those times when your brain just refuses to come up with a new idea. Doesn't happen to me, tho. Ha.

  11. Thanks for the giveaway! I would love to win a copy of this year's issue!! A great magazine to look at over and over again for inspiration.

  12. You know, that would be a fabulous birthday present! It just happens to come on on the day I was born… πŸ™‚ If I don't win one, I'll have to treat myself!

  13. I would so love a copy of this 100 Block spectacular!! I bought a copy of the first volume but used is as a secret sister gift instead of keeping it. Will definitely have to keep a copy of this one! Thanks for this chance to win one πŸ™‚

  14. Ok really Kimberly??? Do you have to show us all up by not only doing everything you already do at FQS, but having blocks in magazines, and charity quilt kits??? All with 4 kids under 4?
    You my dear are just incredible!

  15. Oh I don't twitter so it will have to be here -can't wait 'till this comes out! It is such fun to "imagine" the possibilities!

  16. Volume 1 was so great,
    I went out and bought it –
    (alas, I tried but didn't win one!)
    This time around,
    I'm trying again –
    I'm hoping Volume 2 will be mine won!

    (excuse the twisted grammar, poetic license taken!)

  17. Would LOVE to win this book, as I live in an area that most would describe as the middle of nowhere, not sure our quilt store will get it!

  18. Boy oh boy 100 blocks, that is awesome. Kimberly love yours…can't wait to see the rest.

  19. Can hardly wait to see Kimberly's block in the magazine. Wow! I salute you for getting so much done while expecting your fourth child. Thanks for the giveaway!

  20. Congrats to Kimberly on her really pretty red/white block making it into this edition!
    Please enter me into your giveaway (no twitter on my ol' timey cell phone)

  21. I have last year's book and would love to have this issue as well! Thanks for the giveaway. Congratulations Kimberly on your block.

  22. I bought last year edition of 100 blocks, but at the time didn't realize there were so many contests, etc. associated with it. Now I'm a year into quilting, and have a bit more practice. I did make some blocks from last years magazine, but I'm hoping to do quite a few more out of this one!

  23. I love the block!! I can see it in pastel batiks, hmmm, another project. Just what I need. Please keep up the good work.

  24. What a coincidence! I was looking at volume 1 last night trying to find a pattern I want to use.

  25. Wow I have been reading about this magazine on so many blogs. It looks great. I would LOVE to win a copy… I am not sure if you can get it in Australia.


  26. Oh what a pretty block! I am looking forward to this magazine – I just know it will be as good as the first!
    PS – Congratualtions once again on the birth of Kimberly's son!! Glad she has joined in with the many 3 boy/1 girl families!! (At least for now!!) Blessings to all in the Jolly family πŸ™‚

    Regards from a Western Canadian quilter,

  37. I'll be getting a layer cake soon from Fat Quarter Shop, so this magazine will surely be timely!!!
    Thanks for the chance to win!

  38. Your quilt block is wonderful. Nothing better than one magazine with so many blocks to inspire you.

  39. This is fantastic! The idea of having 100 different quilting blocks in one publication is extremely inspiring. The hamster in my head is already running in its wheel.

  40. Sitting on the edge of my seat,
    Winning this magazine would really be neat.
    Kimerbly's block is stunningly fine,
    Hoping the issue will soon be mine!

  41. At a quilt retreat this weekend, I saw some wonderful quilts, all different, created by members of a block exchange group. This book would be the perfect inspiration for another exchange!

  42. I love the looks of this magazine. Also, I've been seeing pictures of a coffee mug with the blocks pictured — that is so cool! Wish we could get one of those.

  43. So cool for Kimberly to have a block in the magazine. I got last years magazine and have made several blocks from it. I look forward to this one too.

  44. How exciting! I hadn't heard about this magazine before-sure would love to win a copy of it!! Lots of fund blocks to make!!!

  45. What a great opportunity. You do have the best giveaways. Kimberly's block is my favorite color, red. I'd love to win this book.

  46. Can't wait to get my hands on this magazine! Kimberly's block looks like it would make a cool quilt – cool secondary patters would appear. Thanks for the chance to win the magazine!

  47. Oh, Oh, me, me. Would just love to get this new magazine. Imagine what you could do with all those blocks!

  48. Very exciting to be featured! I love having all the blocks in one place and so varied a set. I have last years magazine I go back to very often. Would love to get the 'next installment' πŸ™‚

  49. Oh my goodness…a magazine and fabrics…life does not get any better than that…heavenly! Thanks for the chance to have a bit of heaven! I had such a great time with last year's issue…can't wait!

  50. I'm excited to know that I can have a chance to receive this giveaway book… looking forward as we have so little of anything related to quilting here in Asia. Thanks to technology I have been able to check out many sites on designs & methods. My only knowledge of quilt design is only 5inch squares simple method of combining them into a big quilt used by my mother to make those for us.
    I'm now so excited to start one for a friend's baby due in dec πŸ™‚
