Quiltmaker's 100 Blocks Vol. 10 Blog Tour - The Jolly Jabber Quilting Blog

Quiltmaker’s 100 Blocks Vol. 10 Blog Tour

Hello everyone! We’re delighted to be a part of Quiltmaker’s 100 Blocks Vol. 10 Edition! This issue of Quiltmaker’s 100 Blocks marks the 10th volume of the popular block magazine and that means they have published 1000 original block designs, how amazing is that? 

To celebrate this momentous occasion, Quiltmaker also compiled a video of all of their designers. We had a chance to record the video at the Fall International Quilt Market in Houston last month. 

Ready to see our blocks? Let’s start with Kimberly’s Starberry block! She gave a traditional star block a modern twist and used the whimsical prints from the April Showers collection by Bonnie & Camille

Next, is Jocelyn’s Parasol block. For her design, she was inspired by the structure of umbrellas and added a touch of glamour using the Glitz collection by Michael Miller Fabrics. 

Sarah’s Well-Suited Block is a throwback to her childhood in the 90’s. She was inspired by the “power” ties that her dad loved to wear! She felt that the Botanics collection worked perfectly with her design as well! 

Want to learn how to make our blocks and 97 more? We are giving away three copies of Quiltmaker’s 100 Blocks vol. 10 to three lucky winners! To enter our giveaway, all you need to do is to comment on our blog post and let us know which block would you like to make from the Quiltmaker’s 100 Blocks vol. 10. 
And the winners are…
Don’t forget to visit the Quiltmaker website for giveaways and more blocks from other designers as well. Have an amazing day and happy quilting. 


  1. I would love to make Josalyn's Parasol block!. I have always had a soft spot for pinwheels and I love how her block elaborates on that basic structure. It gives me more scope for using more colors, but it's not over complicated or contrived feeling. I really love it! Magistra13 at yahoo dot com

  2. Well Suited would be a fun block to make for pillows for my little nephews, who don white shirts and ties for special occasions and are cute as can be in them.

  3. From your 3 blocks, I would want to make the Parasol block and in those fabrics, yummy Glitz! but I see some other really cool blocks I would like to make also.

  4. The block I would most likely make first would be Jocelyn's Parasol block. I like the movement of it and it looks like it would join to make interesting secondary designs

  5. Love all of the blocks but I like the Well Suited block to make a man's quilt. I have tons of my Dad's and Brother's shirts and this would be perfect for those. Thanks for the giveaway!

  6. How to choose a favorite block from the 10th edition? Love the beautiful blocks shown above, would love to try Kimberley's Starberry block first.

  7. I love the well suited block, especially good for a man quilt. Thanks for a chance to win. You are sll so talented!!!!

  8. I love pinwheels and would probably want to make a quilt of all the pinwheel blocks, but that ampersand (&) on the cover is really calling me. Wouldn't it be fun to make a quilt with punctuation marks and all those characters that live at the top of your number keys?

  9. Since I love star blocks, the starberry block will probably be the first one I make. Thanks for the chance to win!

  10. I would make the parasol block because I like pinwheels. All the blocks are lovely. Thanks for the chance to win this great book.

  11. All the blocks are great. The well suited block is one I would like to make. I can see it made up into a quilt for a guy with each tie a different color.

  12. I have made my own pattern for an owl and then cut out material from scrap and placed then onto a material and made a baby quilt …. I think that would be considered appliqué ? So yes I have tried it and like it , if that's considered it too!

  13. That's not fair to ask us to pick one from such an awesome collection of blocks. I want to make or try to make them all. Don't want to hurt anyone's feeling. Sorry if this disqualifies me. poladydwd(at)yahoo(dot)com

  14. I would like to make the parasol block! It is really cute. But so many fun ones, I will probably try all of them!

  15. I have seen some fantastic blocks of the blog tour. But, I have to say that pinwheels are one of my favorites. So, I will have to go with the parasol block.

  16. There is a lifetime o choices! I think I would choose the parasol block, because I like the motion in the block. Color and value placement can make such a difference in it.

  17. The first block I would like to make would be the one on the cover with the cardinal iceskating as a tribute to my father. My father passed away 13 years ago at Christmastime, and the cardinal was his favorite bird

  18. I would make Jocelyn's Parasol Block – I love the simplicity of the design, the color/fabric selection and how modern the block is. I love her taste and style! Totally up my alley!

  19. I love the tiny pinwheel in the center of the Parasol block! Thanks for the chance to win: Sarah: crjandsbj(at)netzero(dot)com

  20. Sarah's block makes me think that my Dad always ware a tie everyday to work and church. I'd like to make a quilt with just that block

  21. well suited would be fun to do with actual ties and I love the suspender straps – you could play with those as well – this would make up into a nice mini

  22. I'm leaning toward Starberry, mostly because I can see making it in so many ways, including batiks and scrappy. Thanks for the inspiration!

  23. I've done appliqué before. In fact I've to do 1 1/2 block of the"The Night before Christmas" (Bunny Hill) and the top will be finished.

  24. I would love to make the Well Suited Block. This would make a great man's quilt. You could use different colors or get creative and see what is in your husband's drawers or closet space. Cute idea. Thank you for the inspiration. Good job on all three blocks.

  26. i fell in love with the cardinal on ice skates. i love the whimsy of the poor little bird making the best out of the situation. thanks for the chance at a magazine. my second favorite block so far is the very different pinwheel. i love the straight line look to it. *sigh* i love them all!!!!!!!!!!!

  27. I really like the Well-Suited block! It would be so great in a man's quilt. I even have some mustache fabric to use. This could be great.

    Thanks for the opportunity to win a copy of this new 100 quilt blocks book!

  28. Well Suited would make a great quilt or a pillow for a man. It seems we always have more than enough ideas for females and young males but the older guys can be a bit of a challenge. This block fits the need. This is a great hop. Thanks for participating.

  29. There a lots of blocks I would like to make from the magazine — well, from what I've seen online. All of the FQS ladies made lovely blocks. Of these, I think I'd start with Starberry.

  30. I'd love to make any of the blocks! So many great choices! I'm trying to find a local source to buy one with no luck so far.

  31. So many wonderful blocks and project ideas! The Parasol block is one of my favorites. Thanks for the great giveaway.

  32. I've already decided that as soon as I get my hands on the magazine I'm going to make "Spring" into a mini wall quilt FOR ME! That's the block with the cutest little lamb on it. I'm also going to make the skating cardinal that's on the cover.

  33. Congratulations on making the issue, all 3 of you came up with clever designs.
    I'm thinking about using the birdie on a baby quilt. I've seen many blocks I like but I'm not sure I have the skill needed to complete them. I'm an enthusiastic beginner and this tour has inspired me. I hope as I get more experience I can complete many of the blocks. Deb

  34. I chose not to name a specific block. There are so many that I like and happy to see some with applique. Am certainly enjoying the blog hop and looking forward to getting my copy soon.

  35. I love Jocelyn's parasol block and think I will try to make that one soon.
    Thanks for the opportunity to win this giveaway!

  36. I'm lovin' Kimberly's starberry block! I also love the serendipity stars! What a fabulous book…especially for a newbie quilter like me. 😉

  37. Of YOUR three blocks, I'd make the "Parasol" block; of the ones from the issue I've seen so far, I'd make the Spring Sheep by Deonn Stott.

  38. I've liked so many that I've seen but the Well-Suited one would be great for my husband. Do you think I can get it done in time for Christmas? Thanks for including me in the giveaway as I'd love to win a copy of these patterns. kthurn@bektel.com

  39. I like the parasol block. the tie block I need to see put together in number to decide. thks for giveaway. Pam R pjrcontest at msn.com

  40. I love the starberry block. I am nuts about Bonnie and Camille fabric, so it tugs at my heart strings. I love your blog. Thanks for the opportunity to win.
    Congrats to all for being included in the new magazine.

  41. I love the half moon rising but I think my favourite is the Well-suited Block – what fun and Sarah's choice of fabric is genius.

  42. Love the suspenders with the tie!
    I would totally make any of the stars from this issue! Including Kimberly's star, and the star on the cover, kitty-corner to the left of "Well-Suited".
    thanks all you creative ladies!

  43. I would probably make the parasol block first, but I really like the other 2 blocks you shared today too! Thanks for the inspiration!
