So many blocks!

I'm so lucky to have had my block chosen to be one of the 100 blocks in this awesome new magazine!
It's a great magazine and especially fun for me because so many designer friends also have blocks included. And seriously--100 different blocks all in one place? That's pretty special.

My block is #34, "Rose Trellis". I think it's a pretty versatile block, but I love the Mill House Inn fabric--what could be finer than flowers on top of more flowers?

If you haven't yet heard, you'll want to follow the 100 Blocks blog tour daily Nov. 9-13 at
for inspiration, ideas and giveaways galore! Look for 100 Blocks from Today's Top Designers in your local quilt shop or purchase it at

The prizes look pretty great--and one of them, courtesy of C&T Publishing, is a set of books written by their authors who have a block in the magazine, and that includes the book by yours truly!

Maybe you'd prefer to win a copy of the magazine? Well, Quiltmaker is letting each designer pick a winner for a free copy. So leave a comment right away because tomorrow I'll be picking a winner!
