A Winner (updated)!

100 Blocks Vol 13

I had a lovely response to my post for Quiltmaker’s 100 Blocks, Vol 13 Blog Tour!

A very special thanks to each and every person that commented for a chance to win a free copy of this issue from Quiltmaker. There were lots of great comments, but only one winner!

EDITED TO ADD: My first winner, Diane S., was the lucky winner of two drawings. Each person can only win one magazine, so I had the fun opportunity to choose another winner.

Paddlin by Jennifer Ofenstein

And here we are: You’ll find Paddlin’ on page 20 of Vol. 13!

twitterpated with embroidery

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.

I’m extra excited to share today’s patterns because it’s not only one of my favorite things I’ve shared with Quiltmaker, but it’s one of my favorite patterns that I’ve ever designed!

I had such fun creating this block and I hope you love it as much as I do!

Special Delivery block by Jennifer Ofenstein, Quiltmaker's 100 Blocks Vol. 12, 2016

Here it is: Special Delivery!

You’ll find this red-wearing fella and his sleigh full of presents on page 19 of Vol. 12.

See more of my Sunbonnet Sue designs.

Special Delivery block by Jennifer Ofenstein, Quiltmaker's 100 Blocks Vol. 12, 2016 To add a to the fun, I embellished my block with hand embroidery (patterns included in the magazine).

Special Delivery block by Jennifer Ofenstein, Quiltmaker's 100 Blocks Vol. 12, 2016

How about a snowflake? Here in Austin, Texas, it’s likely to be the only snow I see this year!

I also had a lot of fun playing with Special Delivery and combining this block with some of my other designs to see what kind of fun quilt layouts I could come up with.

Here are two of my favorites:

Table Runner idea with Special Delivery and On, Dasher! by Jennifer Ofenstein

Here, Special Delivery meets my reindeer block, On, Dasher! for a fun Christmas-themed table runner.

Quilt idea with Special Delivery and On, Dasher! by Jennifer Ofenstein

This layout is a bit more ambitious, with the same number of blocks as the table runner, but with the reindeer set in an arc. I just love this idea! Imagine this with a fun snowflake print fabric or lovely hand embroidered embellishments like oodles of snowflakes and reins for the reindeer team!

On, Dasher! A paper pieced pattern by Jennifer Ofenstein

Like On, Dasher? You can find him in my Craftsy Pattern Shop!

Just like all of my patterns, Special Delivery and the above fun layouts were designed in EQ.

EQ7 Seasons RAL - Spring Row by Jennifer Ofenstein

If you remember way back to three weeks ago, my Spring row looks like this! I couldn’t resist coming back this week for a little show & tell!

Baby Quilt made from my EQ7 Seasons RAL Blocks

I used the blocks from my row to create the super fun baby quilt to donate to my favorite blanket charity based right here in Austin, Texas, The Linus Connection. I donated my very first blanket back in 2002 and have been going strong ever since. The blankets and quilts go to children in crisis in Central Texas and I’m proud to be a long time volunteer!❤
