Welcome to my ninth Blog Tour for Quiltmaker’s 100 Blocks!

Be sure to keep reading to the end to find out how to be entered to win today’s prize!


I’ve very excited to share my block for Vol. 14, Bettie’s Bikini (pg. 22)!


This block was inspired by pin-up model Bettie Page after I read that she made all of her own swimwear and lingerie.


While not a replica of any specific suit, this bitty bikini made in reproduction fabrics reminds me of Bettie’s signature style!

Just like all of my patterns, Bettie’s Bikini 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.😉

    What a fun block, as usual. You are so clever. I really enjoyed the history of the bikini altho I never felt I could wear one. They have added to the fun at the beach. What colorful blocks one could make with this one. Thanks for sharing your talents and your block!

  2. Rochelle Summers

    That is a unique block. I can see it in a beach quilt along with flip flops, pails and shovels, etc.

  3. Kris Searle

    Very clever idea. I just finished a row by row quilt from Florida and this would make a nice label for the back.

  4. Mary Frances

    Cute block and easy to imagine additional items to make each quilt unique: sunglasses, flip flops, beach umbrella, etc.

  5. Gwen

    Bettie Page the first “ultimate” pin-up girl, and this adorable block, honors her, how many young men had her picture hanging up.

  6. Rhonda D in KY

    Unique in a good way. It would make a great bed quilt, wall hanging and pillow top for a teenage girl’s room.

  7. Cindy M

    How cute!! This is absolutely the most original idea I’ve seen in a long time! Congrats on making the book!

    I enjoyed looking at your many paper pieced blocks of sewing items, well done and this swim suit is also. Kathy in snowy Colo

    Fun block!! I have never paper-pieced (yet… lol) Thank you for chance to win your give-a-way too 🙂

    I am so planning to make this block in a variety of fabrics for a quilt to be decided later. Great block.

    Cute block! in the past there have been beach umbrellas, flip-flops, etc, it would be fun to add your bikini block to a beach themed quilt.

  12. Elaine M.

    You have such a great creative mind. Your block would make a great summer quilt…each bikini in different bright fabrics.

  13. Barbara Young

    This would be the perfect block to use all of those 6’s and 70’s fabrics that might still be lurking in the stash. Bright neon colors would work too. Fun block. Thanks.

  14. Beth T.

    This reminds me of our Aunt Susie, who used to make bathing suits for her little nieces. She was truly an amazing woman.

  15. Vivian

    Very cool! Just know that these would look great with the flip flops blocks I’ve seen around the web. I foresee a lot of summer quilts being made up from this one!

  16. Lynne Stucke

    Great! You’ve finally showed me how I (yes, I!) can ‘wear’ a bikini … Just make a few of your block, and drape them over me as a quilt! Clever girl!!! Thanks. (lynnstck[at]yahoo.com
