“I HEART you” in quiltmaker’s 100 blocks

May 01, 2014

100 Block Quiltmaker / ann kelle

I’m so tickled to have a quilt block I designed featured in the Summer 2014 issue of Quiltmaker’s 100 Block magazine. The quilt  features my Remix prints and Kona solids. After I designed the block, Teresa Coates was a HUGE help in making it a reality. As always, picking out all the prints and colors was so fun!  I think it turned out very cheery! The Quiltmaker 100 Blocks Blog Tour (running April 28th – May 2nd) has some great inspirations and giveaways! Leave a comment here to win a copy of the magazine, as well as a fat eighths bundle of Remix prints + Kona solids! Entries must be posted by Monday, May 5th at midnight. UPDATE: The giveaway is now closed. Thank you for all your sweet comments! Congratulations to the random winner, Lee!
