Welcome to my EIGHTH Blog Tour for Quiltmaker’s 100 Blocks! I’m excited to be back yet again for this very fun event!
Be sure to keep reading to the end to find out how to be entered to win today’s prize!
And here we are: You’ll find Paddlin’ on page 20 of Vol. 13!
These birds were inspired by a design I created some years ago, but never published. It wasn’t quite right, but I loved the birds! If you look closely, you’ll see the “Momma” bird from Paddlin’ is sitting on the ground, while the “babies” are up on the line.
Just for fun, I put together a small quilt idea using four blocks,, two of which are in mirror image. I just love the wreath-inside-a-window effect!
Just like all of my patterns, Paddlin’ was designed in EQ7.
And now, I have the pleasure of giving away a free copy of this issue of Quiltmaker’s 100 Blocks!
To enter to win, simply comment below! It doesn’t get easier than that. 😉
Only comments that include contact information will be eligible to win.
