Terrific Tuesday Giveaway Day - 100 Blocks - Volume 11 Edition

Today's terrific Tuesday is going to be a little different . . .   Because today is also my day for the  100 Blocks Blog Hop and I am so excited!!!  So just follow along, and we will get to the TTGD part before to long ;)    I love 100 Blocks Magazine!!!  This is the 6th time I have had a block in 100 Blocks and I hope there will be many more to come ;)



This is my block and it's called Pavers Stone.  I designed this block in the Pittsburgh airport on my way back from Spring Quilt Market last year.  I was inspired by a carved design in the cement outside of the airport.   I couldn't wait to get through security so I could sit down with a pad of paper and sketch it out.  I just love the clean, simple lines of it ;)




And look how awesome it becomes when you put it in a block format.   I knew I loved this block on it's own, but when I saw the secondary design it created putting it into a quilt layout, fantastic!!!!



You can also change the background out to a darker color.   It makes the secondary design pop out all the more.  So loving this!!!!!



In fact, I just love this dark background so much, I just might be starting a little something using this block, a twist, and some of this.   I will share more soon ;)

  86. Did you know you can count to 11 on your fingers? Starting with the little finger on your right hand and proceeding one digit at a time to your thumb, count backwards from 10 to 6 (10, 9, 8, 7, 6). Then with a twinkle in your eye, hold up your left hand and say: "And five more make 11."

  121. The comments are so much fun!

    Eleven volumes- one hundred blocks each
    To say that's a lot wouldn't be much of a reach
    Inspiration for quilts can be found just anywhere
    At the airport, the park or from the top of a stair
    In a rug, a plant, maybe even a boat
    These blocks are great and e won't even gloat.
    Poachers stone by Melissa in many color ways will keep us all in stitches for at least eleven more days.

  123. Well, you have done it again! I enjoy your block so much and just love it when the block pattern becomes a secondary design pops out. You are one very talented designer. I have some material that I have put aside just waiting for the right pattern and this is it. I just love the way you see something and then create it and share with all of us. Thank you for being a part of the QM's 100 Blocks, Volume 11 Blog Tour and giving us the chance to win a copy of this awesome priceless magazine plus 2 of yours.
