100 Blocks Blog Tour Begins Today!

The Quiltmaker's 100 Blocks Blog Tour begins today- Monday, May 2.

Check out their website - http://www.quiltmaker.com/100blocks.html

There are a lot of other designers featured this week. They have
giveaways and lots of fun things going on. There are some beautiful blocks in the book, all hand signed by their designer, and Quiltmaker Magazine is giving each of the 100 blocks away during the week.

Winners of the first two books- My block is the purple flowers on the cover, under the "B". It's not my normal look but I guess I can't fool too many! The first two ladies who guessed correctly are Kimberly B. and Martha S. I'll be sending a free copy of the Quiltmaker's 100 Blocks books to them this week.

I'll be giving away a another copy today- just leave a comment here on the Blog. I'll choose a winner by the end of today. I'll also include all of the email responses I have gotten so far today in the drawing. The magazine is on sale starting May 10.
