Hi everybody! Welcome to Day 1 of Quiltmaker’s 100 Blocks Blog Tour! We are making happy noises over the newest issue, Volume 9. In here are three awesome and very different blocks, from three of us here at Fat Quarter Shop & It’s Sew Emma.
They are: #850 A Whale of a Block by Debbie, #851 Flower Child by Jocelyn, and #875 Robo-Bop by Kimberly. Each has real personality and potential! Debbie’s block even made the cover!
We are devising ideas for settings… scaling up Debbie’s block for an adorbs nautical nursery wall hanging. Pairing Flower Child with big 12″ squares from Jeni Baker’s new Dreamin’ Vintage for a quick quilt bursting with juicy colors. Robo-Bop would make fun pillows, bags, and bed quilt for a mechanically-minded child.
Hop on the block bandwagon and see what other 100 Blocks designers have in store for you! Visit the Quiltmaker blog to see the full line up, plus chances to win some great prizes.
Just in case you were wondering, Robo-Bop was made with Mixed Bag, Flower Child with Color Me Retro, and A Whale of a Block with dots from various collections. For instructions, you’ll need a copy of Volume 9 of Quiltmaker’s 100 Blocks.
One winner from this post today will win their very own copy of the 100 Blocks Vol. 9 issue, so comment below and tell us your ideas for these blocks! What fabrics and what settings – we want to hear it all! The winner will be announced on Monday, May 5. Good luck!
UPDATE — the giveaway is now closed. Our winner of the 100 Blocks copy is Karrie S.!

- Loving the blocks! I think the middle would look great with Dreamin’ Vintage as well. The Whale and Robot would be good in metallics. Navy for the whale and Silver/gray for the robot. Or maybe a scrappy robot. Thanks for the chance to win 😉
