100 Blocks - Royalty and Queen of Hearts Quilt

It's time for another 100 Blocks Blog Hop!!!  Volume 12 of 100 Blocks Magazine is hitting new stands everywhere and I am so very honored to have a block in it!!  The block is called Royalty and it is block #1170.  Isn't that just so fun ;)


  I just love 100 Blocks magazine!!!  They are just jammed pack with so many wonderful designs!!  This is the 7th time I have had a block in 100 Blocks and I hope there will be many more to come ;)


And if you are wondering what Royalty looks like in a quilt . . . well, wonder no more.  Here is my latest quilt finish!!!  I am calling it Queen of Hearts ;)


 I absolutely love the Red, Black and White color combo!!!  Just like in the block, I used my favorite Grunge Basic in Red, but used two different shades alternating the two shades in each blocks to give the quilt a cool two tone effect.  the blacks and whites are prints from Zen Chic's Modern Backgrounds Ink and Paper.


I love how this block comes together to make such a fun secondary design.  Sometimes I see the Red hearts coming together, and other times I see the white X's and black lattice.  So fun!!!  It really does have lots of fun movement.


When it came time to quilt, I decided to go with a beautiful big all over swirl.  And just like in this quilt I shared last week, I went with  a gorgeous Red Fox #469 So Fine #50 Thread !!  I just love the way it blends in the red and pops on the black and white!!!



And that is Queen of Hearts, made with the Royalty Block!!!   I hope you love it as much as I do ;)


And one lucky Happy Quilting reader will be getting the Royalty Block pattern as well as 99 other amazing block patterns in Volume 12 of Quiltmaker's 100 Blocks!!!!

  19. Sometimes I wish I had 12 fingers instead of 10. Would make some things easier (stranded knitting for example). Well, really I am happy with the 10 I have. Wish they were longer and more elegant instead of the stubby ones I have however.

  77. My quilting ancestry began with my grandmother who lived in rural south Alabama. She hand pieced and quilted with whatever she had on hand...flour sacks, leftover clothing fabrics, even polyester when it became a fad. My family moved near her when I was fifteen to a small place my Dad fondly called Twelve Oaks. Mother hand pieced and quilted as well as sewing all my clothes and shirts for Dad and my 5 brothers. I found four quilt tops in her stash after she passed away, which is what started my quilting passion. Your quilt is quite nice!

    ReplyDelete
  78. BOM programs always have 12 blocks, but last time I wanted it bigger and did it for two years! At the end I had 24 blocks, which I couldn't lay out in a way I liked so I had to make an extra for a 5x5 layout.

  181. Soon the 12th month is upon us! Oh I love it all, candles, swedish saffron buns, advent lights (get them at Ikea!) and wreaths! I think I like the preparation time more than Christas Eve actually, but don't tell anyone!

  186. If you made one of each of the blocks in Vol.12, you would need to make 8.3 blocks in each of the 12 months.

  189. Hi Melissa! I'm also a vol. 12 designer and I'm just popping around to visit all the other blog tour participants. Your Queen of Hearts block is just so fun! I love when a block creates a secondary design :o) Congratulations on a great design!
