100 Blocks - Volume 14!!!

I am so excited!!!  It's time for another 100 Blocks Blog Hop!!!  Volume 14 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 Circle Squared and it is block #1368.  And oh my goodness, it is so much fun to put together!!



  I just love 100 Blocks magazine!!!  They are such a fantastic source of  creative goodness!!  This is the 9th time I have had a block in 100 Blocks and I never cease to be amazed but all of the incredible blocks ;)  And I had to squeal a little when the magazine arrived in the mail and I found my name on the cover!!!  What an honor ;)




I made the original block in Grunge Basics for Moda.  You all know how I just love Grunge!!! And how cool does it look in a full quilt layout.  I just love the fantastic geometric goodness of this block.    Ya, I have added it to my list to make.  



But now my only problem is, I don't know what version to make.  I started playing around with the colors and how fun would it be to make it in a two color version.   It just adds such a cool 3-d effect to it, especially in the grays and blacks.  



And then I thought, I need to do some more scrap busting as my scrap drawers continue to overflow.  So maybe a little low volume sashing added and then some super fun ombre scrappy blocks.   Eeekk, I think I might just have to make this rainbow play version.  



What ever version I decide on, it's going to be so much fun!!!   It really is just a super fun block to put together and whips up pretty fast.   I hope you want to make up your own version as well, and if you do, be sure and share it with me.  Maybe it will help me decide which version to make ;)



And that's all of the Circle Squared Block . . . But don't go away yet!!  One lucky Happy Quilting reader will be getting the all the amazing block patterns in their own copy of Volume 14 of Quiltmaker's 100 Blocks!!!!

  10. Congratulations on having another block in this 100 block magazine - and especially having your name on the front of the cover. All versions above are great, but I must say the second version - two color version - especially looks striking with the grey and black.

  166. I love the original -- I love the vintage mod color palette. I'd be tempted to swap out the print,though. Using text and geometric prints, in the same palette, would feel more contemporary and less like a set piece in a period TV show.

  167. I love the two tone, would love to use some fun gray and white text fabric fr it.

    ReplyDelete
