100 Blocks Blog Tour


Quiltmaker has been one of my favorite quilting magazines since I started sewing and designing in 2000. I was quite honored to be asked a second time to submit a block for the second edition of the 100 Blocks magazine. This time the magazine was coming out around the same time as my newest line of fabric, "Furry Friends" from Blank Quilting. So I used my fabric and my favorite bear to create a fun and easy block. I hope you enjoy making this block as much as I did.

I have gotten my copy of the 100 Blocks magazine and can tell you it has so many wonderful designs that can keep you busy for entire year. Whether you love piecing, applique or paper piecing there are blocks for you. Make sure to order yours today. You can also check out all the artists on the blog tour as well as sign up for different prizes at the Quiltmaker Blog
including a chance to win of one of the 100 blocks the artist made and signed for the magazine.

As for our giveaways. Please leave a comment with your email address for a chance to win a copy of the 100 Blocks magazine (we will be giving away five of them!) or a fat quarter bundle of my Furry Friends collection (we have several to give away). Make Sure to check back tomorrow to see if you have won!!!

Make sure to sign up for our email newsletter which will feature a free pattern to use our Bear block along with my matching Bunny Block which will go out next week to all that sign-up.

You can see all of our great products at www.TheWhimsicalWorkshop.com where we always offer FREE Shipping and until Christmas we are offering 15% off your entire purchase, just use promo code- FLL15Off. You can also follow us on Facebook.

I look forward to hearing from you this week and hope you have fun on this great blog tour.
Happy Creating,
Heidi
