I was delighted to get a complimentary copy of Quiltmaker's 100 Blocks, volume 10, as a follow up to my participation in Quiltmaker's Back-to-School Party in September.
Block #914 filled the bill for two projects on my to-do list. At the NLCQG holiday dinner we have a block exchange. I made one block of #914. At my P.E.O. chapter holiday potluck we have a gift exchange. I made the block and then made it into a pillow. (The sample in the magazine had a white background. I used a light blue snowflake print. I had the blocks made before I even pulled out fabric to finish the pillow. Eureka! I had just the right green/red/blue print in my stash, and enough of it for the border and back of the pillow.)
The block(photo not shown) is 12.5" and the pillow is 17". Of course I did machine applique.
I'm linking up with dozens of other quiltmakers for Finish It Friday at Crazy Mom Quilts .
