Choose your favorite block & quilt

29 Apr

Fellow Quilters,
The newest issue of Quiltmaker’s 100 Blocks (volume 7) is rolling off the presses as we speak, and the folks at Quiltmaker’s have organized another blog tour. Today is my day to post, so a warm welcome to visitors from the tour!
Northcott’s ad in the issue features the spa colorway of Serenity by Cheri Strole. I chose the alternate colorway (Caribbean – I am sitting on a beach in the Bahamas today!) to play with various blocks in this issue, and I would like you to tell me which block and quilt below are your favorite, for a chance to win a copy of 100 Blocks Volume 7.
There were 5 blocks designed by pattern designers that also design for Northcott, so I started with their blocks, substituting Serenity for the fabrics shown in the magazine.
Marilyn Foreman of Quilt Moments designed #664 Kaleidoscope Star. Marilyn’s specialty is kaleidoscope, so I used the main print from Serenity for the center portion of the block.

Marilyn's Kaleidoscope star
Chris Hoover of Whirligig Designs used Northcott’s Fragrance in her Tilt-a-Whirl block #669 and showcased the stripe beautifully. Since there wasn’t a stripe in Serenity, I used a directional vine print in its place in the center of the block.

Chris Hoover's Tilt-a-Whirl
Celine Perkins of Perkins Dry Goods always has a block in 100 Blocks, and #687 is Apron Strings. There is lots of plain area in this block.

Celine Perkin's Apron Strings
Marjorie Rhine of Quilt Design NW designed #688 Hearts Around, and it works quite well with Serenity.

Marjorie Rhine's Hearts Around
Jocelyn Ueng of It’s Sew Emma designed #697 Trendster – it has lots of movement.

Jocelyn Ueng's Trendster block
I also used Quiltmaker tester Peg Spradlin’s Pay Day block #695, as she used Northcott’s Kaleidoscope collection in hers. It looks lovely in Serenity too.

Peg Spradlin's Pay Day
Then I started combining the blocks in quilts, and that’s when the fun started! Not all of the blocks played well together – 4×4 layouts don’t always play well with 3×3 layouts. Some of the combinations were much more interesting than quilts made with just one block. Let’s take a look at some of them.
This quilt is a combination of Marjorie’s Hearts block #688 & Jocelyn’s Trendster block #697. The two blocks flow into each other so well that it’s hard to tell where one block ends and the next one starts!

688 & 697 combo
I thought Celine’s Apron Strings block #687 was not too exciting until I combined it with other blocks. Wow! It is a fantastic alternate block! In this next quilt, it is set with Marjorie’s Hearts block.

687 & 688 combo
In this quilt, Celine’s block is paired with Chris Hoover’s Tilt-a-Whirl block #669. This quilt now looks like it has blocks set on point instead of straight-set.

669 & 687 combo
In this final quilt, Celine’s block is set with Marilyn’s Kaleidoscope Star block #664, and creates a diagonal trellis effect – amazing!

664 & 687 combo
Okay, now it’s your turn. Post a comment on my blog by midnight tonight April 29th, telling me your favorite block and quilt, for a chance to win a copy of Quiltmaker’s 100 Blocks Volume 7. I will also choose a couple of names for a bundle of Serenity fat quarters. And thanks for stopping by! See you soon!
Cheers,
Patti

    I like the apron strings block. My favorite quilt was the 3rd one down that used this block in it with block 664.

  2. Marilyn Tucker April 29, 2013 at 10:27 am #

    I like the first block and the first quilt.

  3. Robin Gouin April 29, 2013 at 10:28 am #

    Just beautiful shades blue!

  4. The Stylish Home April 29, 2013 at 10:28 am #

    I like the Tilt-a-Whirl block, but the quilt made with Celine & Marilyn’s blocks :D Lucky you on a beach! Thanks for the chance…lets hope that in this case, the early bird gets the…um….magazine!

  5. Marsha Boykin April 29, 2013 at 10:30 am #

    I love the Marjorie’s Hearts block because it reminds me of a longtime friend who collects quilted hearts. However, I have to admit that the fabric selection brought sentimental tears to my eyes. The design brought fond memories of my grandparents and times we spent at their beach home!

  6. Christine April 29, 2013 at 10:31 am #

    I love the simplicity of these blocks with the soft blues! Can’t wait to try them!

  7. Jo thatcher April 29, 2013 at 10:33 am #

    My fav is 688 and 697 combined….stunning. No beginning and no end…seamless? Enjoy the warmth of Bahama’s. It will warm up in Collingwood soon. Blue is now shut down!! Jo thatcher

  8. Ruth April 29, 2013 at 10:36 am #

    Definitely the Tilt a Whirl block because it stands out but blends at the same time.

  9. Jill Hicks April 29, 2013 at 10:38 am #

    I love the tilt-a-whirl block.

  10. Mary Cate April 29, 2013 at 10:40 am #

    I like Apron Strings because sometimes it’s a gift to be simple – but love it set with the Hearts block.

  11. Faye Kerper April 29, 2013 at 10:40 am #

    I liked the Payday block. I look for simple patterns because most of my work is now done for charilty purposes.

  12. Lynda Parker April 29, 2013 at 10:40 am #

    “Pick a favorite” she says. Like it’s easy. They are all so pretty in this fabric!
    Favorite block – kaleidoscope star
    Favorite quilt, the last one, combining kaleidoscope star and apron strings. I love two block quilts.

  13. Sharon Lichter April 29, 2013 at 10:43 am #

    My favorite block is Marilyn Foreman’s #664 Kaleidoscope Star, and my favorite quilt is the one with Celine’s block and Marilyn’s Kaleidoscope.

  14. Linda Jones April 29, 2013 at 10:43 am #

    I choose #664 Kaleidoscope Star as my favourite block as well as for the complete quilt.

  15. In The Boon Docks April 29, 2013 at 10:45 am #

    Block 697 Trendster is really great! I would love to make it! The fabric is beautiful! I am a follower!

  16. Koricard April 29, 2013 at 10:46 am #

    My favorite block is the Kaleidoscope Star (664). I like the way is shows off the print in the center. My favorite quilte pattern is the last one with the Kaleidoscope Star and the Apron Strings (687) block. I love the fabric and the colors and the way they come together in this last quilt pattern. I may have to add that to my list of “quilts to make” list.

  17. Julie A. April 29, 2013 at 10:50 am #

    My favorite block is the Tilt-a-Whirl, #669 and my favorite quilt is #687 (Apron Strings) and #664 (Kaleidoscope Star). And I absolutely love the Serenity Fabric :)

  18. Kathy S April 29, 2013 at 10:54 am #

    Soooo jealous that you are in the Bahamas! I live in Florida so I can also get those Caribbean sun rays. My block choice is the “Tilt a Whirl” block,very beach like for me!

  19. cathy jones April 29, 2013 at 10:54 am #

    I love the first block with the seashells, maybe I am just longing to be near the sea. My favorite quilt is the first one with the long grass, Seems to be flowing.

  20. Susan Coles April 29, 2013 at 10:55 am #

    I like #695. the straight lines appeal to me.

  21. Martina Curtis April 29, 2013 at 10:57 am #

    I love Marilyn Foreman of Quilt Moments designed #664 Kaleidoscope Star,
    and #687 is Apron Strings. Celine’s block is set with Marilyn’s Kaleidoscope Star block #664, and I love the fabric that you have chosen.

  22. Mary Simm April 29, 2013 at 10:58 am #

    My favorite block is the Kaleidoscope Star, and my favorite quilt is the one with the apron strings block and the kaleidoscope star block. I love how these look in the Serenity fabrics

  23. lizenquilts April 29, 2013 at 10:58 am #

    Seeing lots of possibilities for the Tilt-A-Whirl block! Is the Serenity line available now? It is GORGEOUS! Am going to have to run by the quilt shop to pick up a few yards

  24. Sandy Spence April 29, 2013 at 11:00 am #

    They are all beautiful, but I think that the first block and the last quilt are my favorite!!! Can’t wait to see Volume 7!!

  25. Sam Bradley April 29, 2013 at 11:01 am #

    I love them all and I love those colors – so soft.

  26. Kathy Bolen April 29, 2013 at 11:02 am #

    I love the Serenity fabric! All the blocks and quilts are lovely but my favorites are the Tilt-A-Whirl block and the Apron Strings #687 and Tilt-A-Whirl#669 quilt. Enjoy the Bahamas!

  27. sara stockton April 29, 2013 at 11:04 am #

    my favorite blocks are #687 and #664 and the way they were combined for a trellis effect. love the fabric and its great versitility.

  28. Margie April 29, 2013 at 11:05 am #

    I like the second quilt and the Heart’s Around block best….Love the soft colors of the fabrics you choose!

  29. scienceoftrash April 29, 2013 at 11:06 am #

    I really like what you did with the Apron Strings block! As I was reading through I saw the Apron Strings block and thought it wasn’t much, but when I saw it combined (in that amazing Serenity fabric!) with the Kaleidoscope Star block in the last quilt I was bowled over! Fantastic – that quilt is definitely my favorite! And the Apron String block might be my favorite block now because it’s so versatile – thanks for a great post!

  30. Rachell R April 29, 2013 at 11:07 am #

    my favorite block, hands down, is Kaleidoscope Star. and my favorite quilt is Kaleidoscope and Apron Strings– just amazing! Celine’s block just seems to compliment other blocks for making great secondary designs.
    and I would love to win some Serenity– apt name and gorgeous colors!

  31. Avon B April 29, 2013 at 11:08 am #

    My favorite quilt is the one made with Marjorie’s Hearts block #688 & Jocelyn’s Trendster block #697. My favorite block is Jocelyn’s Trendster block #697.

  32. Donna April 29, 2013 at 11:08 am #

    Thanks for featuring block combinations. I loved the Apron Strings with Hearts Around. And the Serenity fabric line is “to die for.”

  33. Heather Davis April 29, 2013 at 11:12 am #

    I had a hard time choosing. I really like block #667 and #687. I also like the fabric. When I return home I will look for both the book and fabric.

  34. Pam C April 29, 2013 at 11:13 am #

    I love the Tilt-a-Whirl block and the last quilt made with this and the kaleidoscope star block.

  35. Juli F. April 29, 2013 at 11:13 am #

    I really like the kaleidoscope block and the many possibilities for its use. After taking a basic quilting class last fall I am now addicted. I just need to figure out a way to afford material on my social security income.

  36. Kerry Davidson April 29, 2013 at 11:18 am #

    The fabric is so beautiful and looks so good in all the blocks that it’s hard to pick a favourite, but I think I’d have to go with the Tilt-a-Whirl block #669, and the quilt would be the one with Celine’s block with Marilyn’s Kaleidoscope Star block #664. They all look lovely.

  37. Mary Porath April 29, 2013 at 11:19 am #

    I love Payday and Trendster blocks. The fabric is so soothing and relaxing, would love to relax under Serenity!

  38. Sharon Strickland April 29, 2013 at 11:19 am #

    I like Celine’s #687. It proves that it is important to consider what blocks achieve on their own, but even more important to consider what using multiple blocks can do! My favorite quilt – the last one that combine’s Apron Strings and Kaleidoscope – really demonstrates this! Love, love, love the cool greens and blues in Serenity as well.

  39. Mary Ellen poulton April 29, 2013 at 11:23 am #

    My favorite block is #664 the block is able to use the variety of the fabrics and my favorite quilt is the last quilt I like the unique the blocks fit together very interesting designs

  40. Shelly April 29, 2013 at 11:27 am #

    Love the Hearts block and it is especially striking with the Apron Strings block! Wow looks like they were made to go together! But honestly, I love all of the Serenity fabrics! How peaceful yet elegant!

  41. heyina2013 April 29, 2013 at 11:31 am #

    I love the Kaleidoscope Star block and combined with Apron Strings they make a lovely quilt. I would love to win some Serenity fabric and especially this colorway.

  42. Holly April 29, 2013 at 11:31 am #

    I love the block #664, and quilt #669. The colors are so soothing.

  43. Valorie Spanogle April 29, 2013 at 11:31 am #

    I love Peg Spradlin’s Pay Day block and the quilt I like is the 3rd one down with Chris Hoovers Whirl-a-gig design. Hard to choose though because these fabrics have my favorite colors in them.

  44. Joanne V April 29, 2013 at 11:35 am #

    My favorite block is #664 Kaleidoscope Star and the last quilt with the diagonal trellis effect. The colors and design are just beautiful!

  45. Brenda Shriner April 29, 2013 at 11:36 am #

    Block #669 and the quilt made with it are my favorites.

  46. Linda Johnson April 29, 2013 at 11:38 am #

    my favorite block is Marilyn’s 664 Kaleidoscope and my favorite quilt is made with Marilyns 664 Kaleidoscope and Celine’s 687 Apron Strings. they’re all great though

  47. julia April 29, 2013 at 11:38 am #

    i particularly liked the last quilt version as i like the diagonal lines created by the two blocks combination.

  48. Celia Davis April 29, 2013 at 11:41 am #

    My favorite block was #688 Hearts Around. I liked Celine’s block set with Marilyn’s Kaleidoscope Star block #664. It is amazing how different they look depending on what other blocks they are set with.

  49. Paula J Malone April 29, 2013 at 11:42 am #

    Love all of them, especially the Kaleidoscope. The last quilt is wonderful. Love these fabrics!

  50. Terri E April 29, 2013 at 11:42 am #

    I love the Kaleidoscope star block, I have a special fondness for stars! My favorite quilt is the last one with the Apron Strings block and the Kaleidoscope block, I really like the trellis effect. The Serenity fabrics are beautiful, those cool blues and greens make me want to go visit the ocean, especially since it’s going to be in the upper 90’s today here in the desert! Thanks for sharing on the blog tour.

  51. Lynne Wilhelm April 29, 2013 at 11:42 am #

    I really like the Hearts Around block # 688, It is a very interesting block that looks like it could have impact in a quilt. Of course then my favourite quilt is the one that combines this block with Trendster # 697. The blocks flow so well together.

  52. Jan P. April 29, 2013 at 11:47 am #

    Lovely fabric to work with! My favourites: Tilt-a-Whirl block #669, and Apron Strings block #687 combined with Marjorie’s Hearts block. Thanks for the inspiration!

  53. Linda April 29, 2013 at 11:48 am #

    I really like the kaleidoscope Star block, especially when it is combined with Celine’s block.

  54. Beth T. April 29, 2013 at 11:50 am #

    While my favorite block was Payday, my favorite quilt was the last one, using Celine’s and Marilyn’s blocks. Thanks so much for giving us peeks at the wonderful possibilities.

  55. Darlene Lindsay April 29, 2013 at 11:51 am #

    I think this blog tour will be loads of fun. Love the Quilmaker’s 100 Blocks — have used for several past projects

  56. Carolyn B. April 29, 2013 at 11:51 am #

    WOW! I loved the #697 Trendster block and the Quilt with Celine and Chris Hoover’s blocks. All of the examples were perfect for the fabric line. Great food for thought. Thanks for the neat blog tour.

  57. Karla S. April 29, 2013 at 11:57 am #

    I like the Tilt a Whirl block. The quilt I like was the last one, using the Apron Strings block and Kaleidoscope block. It is striking with the fabrics you used.

  58. Janet April 29, 2013 at 11:58 am #

    I like the Kaleidoscope Star block and the second quilt with the Apron Strings and Heart blocks.

  59. Harriette April 29, 2013 at 11:59 am #

    My favorite is #664 Kaleidoscope Star. It really speaks to me.

  60. Betty Appel April 29, 2013 at 12:01 pm #

    My eyes went straight to the Kaleidescope Star #664 and combined with Celine’s
    block it looked like I was looking thru a real kaleidescope as I glanced at the four
    corners of the quilt. Love it. Thanks for sharing your talent. Betty

  61. PJB April 29, 2013 at 12:02 pm #

    I liked the Tilt a Whirl block #669 with Northcott’s Fragrance. I’l love to win a copy of the magazine.

  62. Pat C in Washington April 29, 2013 at 12:04 pm #

    My favorite is the last one with the kaleidoscope star block – so pretty! Thank you for the chance to win!

  63. Mary Jane HOstetter April 29, 2013 at 12:09 pm #

    I like block 687.
    The quilt I like best is Celine’s block set to Marilyn’s block 664

  64. Maryln Fleming April 29, 2013 at 12:11 pm #

    I like the Tilt-a-whirl block and the quilt using is set on point.

    • Deborah Pearcey April 29, 2013 at 12:42 pm #

      I like the kaleidoscope square and the final quilt

  65. Gwen in VA April 29, 2013 at 12:14 pm #

    My favorite block is that Kaleidoscope Star–it’s looks so cool with the shells in the middle! And I really like the quilt where it’s combined with the Apron Strings block. The two together make a fabulous quilt!

  66. Shirley V D April 29, 2013 at 12:15 pm #

    I like the first block, #664 Kaleidoscope Star the best, but they are ALL very nice. The quilt combination I like the best is the last one, using #664 and #687 (Apron Strings). It is absolutely gorgeous!! I love the colors of all these quilts, so calming.

  67. Susan April 29, 2013 at 12:21 pm #

    I think they are all lovely. But, if I had to choose just 1, I would pick #664 Kaleidoscope Star.

  68. Heather April 29, 2013 at 12:33 pm #

    I liked the Hearts Around block, and I liked the first quilt using this block with the Trendster block.

  69. Sheryl Miller April 29, 2013 at 12:36 pm #

    I like #687 and the Apron Strings quilt. Thanks for this opportunity.

  70. Rachel JOhnson April 29, 2013 at 12:41 pm #

    I like block #669 and the last quilt

  71. Marietjie April 29, 2013 at 12:42 pm #

    What a gorgeous fabric line (my favourite colour). I like Tilt-a-Whirl block #669 the best and the quilt using the combination of Marjorie’s Hearts block #688 & Jocelyn’s Trendster block #697

  72. Chris April 29, 2013 at 12:45 pm #

    Pick just one??? I guess the Apron Strings and Tilt a Whirl look great together but experience tells me you need to see them on a wall in your fabric to decide.

  73. kathy h April 29, 2013 at 12:46 pm #

    they are all wonderful blocks and the fabrics are just beautiful. My favorite is the kaleidoscope star and the kaleidoscope quilt too. i love the beachy feel from the blocks and fabrics.

  74. carsmith48 April 29, 2013 at 12:48 pm #

    I liked #664 Kaleidoscope Star the best, but they all, are wonderful. We are moving to Naples, Florida and this gives me coastal inspiration!

  75. Carolyn Irion April 29, 2013 at 12:52 pm #

    I love the Tilt-a-Whirl block and the quilt that has that block also. It looks like they are made for each other.

  76. hardenbrookgirl April 29, 2013 at 12:56 pm #

    Very clever blocks and quilts! I love how the fabrics were used. I’m so looking forward to the magazine!

  77. debra April 29, 2013 at 12:57 pm #

    I love Kaleidoscope

  78. hardenbrookgirl April 29, 2013 at 12:59 pm #

    I like both Kaleidoscope Star and Tilt-a-Whirl. The last quilt is my favorite. It was so hard to pick!

  79. tammy h April 29, 2013 at 1:01 pm #

    My favourite blocks was Peg Spradlin’s PayDay block. I loved the quilt with the Kaleidoscope blocks. What a wonderful magazine this will be!

  80. Becky Hall April 29, 2013 at 1:02 pm #

    I like block number 697 best by itself, but when you start combining things, I like the combination of 687 and 664.

  81. Kathleen April 29, 2013 at 1:04 pm #

    I like the Tilt-a-Whirl block the best because it gives me the feel of nature.

  82. Retha April 29, 2013 at 1:05 pm #

    Retha
    I like Jocelyn Ueng designed #697 block

  83. Janice April 29, 2013 at 1:06 pm #

    I love the Serenity line! Hard to choose but I’ll go with the combo of Marjorie’s Heart and Jocelyn’s Trendster. It gives me the feel of sunlight on the water at the beach. Lucky you!

  84. Toni Anne Potter April 29, 2013 at 1:10 pm #

    Hearts around is my favorite block (I love hearts). The second quilt made with blocks #688 and #697 is my favorite quilt. Is so think the colors used were fantastic. ;-> Toni Anne

  85. Karen Wahl April 29, 2013 at 1:11 pm #

    My favorite is the kaleidoscope star. Love the colors and the seashell center. Reminds of times spent on the beach every year. Someday will make a quilt using sea glass colors. I like the quilt using Marjorie Rhines block

  86. Linda Yeager April 29, 2013 at 1:13 pm #

    My preference is the Kaleidoscope Star #664, both alone and paired with Celine’s block for the whole quilt. Great color choices–the sea green/blues are very calming..

  87. Jeannine April 29, 2013 at 1:23 pm #

    Marilyn Foreman of Quilt Moments designed #664 Kaleidoscope Star. This is my favorite and absolutely love the fabric!!

  88. Rene April 29, 2013 at 1:34 pm #

    The fabric colors are wonderful. I really like the kaleidoscope quilt but they are all great. It is fascinating how different they can look with just a little movement.

  89. Jacqueline April 29, 2013 at 1:39 pm #

    The blocks are all great designs and the Quilts are beautiful. To pick a favourite it would be the last Quilt Celine’s block set with Marylyn’s Kaleidoscope Star Block. #664. I am trying to teach my teenage daughter how to quilt and the opportunity to win something that would show her all different blocks would be a thrill. Thank you for the chance.

  90. gussek April 29, 2013 at 1:41 pm #

    My favorite block is #664 Kaleidoscope Star and my favorite quilt is Kaleidoscope and Apron Strings. Amazing!

  91. Janine Huisjen April 29, 2013 at 1:44 pm #

    My favorite block is the Kaleidoscope Star and I like the last quilt (combined with Celine’s block) the best.

  92. Sandy April 29, 2013 at 1:58 pm #

    I like the combination of Marjorie’s Hearts block #688 & Jocelyn’s Trendster block #697. Si peaceful and beautiful. Love, love, love the fabric line.

  93. Sherry Starr April 29, 2013 at 2:03 pm #

    I like the Pay Day block, and my favorite quilt is the last one which was combined with Celine’s block.

  94. Joanna April 29, 2013 at 2:07 pm #

    I love Kaleidoscope and Apron Strings and am in love with the quilt they create. They look made for each other.

  95. darlene krystal April 29, 2013 at 2:13 pm #

    Kaleidoscope star block is way cool…especially with the seashells in the center…the print makes them look appliqued into the block…..The apron strings and kaleidoscope star blocks quilts is my choice to try making….the diagonally setting that appears is way…..both quilt blocks definitely go together…..The first day of the QM 100 Vol 7 gave me 9 new quilt blocks to learn…way!!!!…thank you for being part of the tour…..

  96. Pam from CA April 29, 2013 at 2:15 pm #

    I like Marilyn’s Kaleidoscope Star Block and the Last quilt it is set in with Celine’s block.

  97. Marilyn April 29, 2013 at 2:15 pm #

    I really like the Kaleidoscope Star Block by Marilyn Foreman and the last quilt layout that is combined with Celine’s block to make the trellis effect.

  98. Pat Evans April 29, 2013 at 2:16 pm #

    Wow, what tough choices. The quilts all look so good, it’s hard to choose.
    My block pick would be 664 Kaleidoscope star by Marilyn Foreman and my quilt pick would be the last one with 664 and 687 apron strings by Celine Perkins. Thanks for all the inspiration.

  99. Rebecca's Quilt Factory April 29, 2013 at 2:17 pm #

    I like the Kaleidoscope block and the last quilt that was made with it also! I’m kind of a star person and I like the secondary diagonal lines. Good movement in the quilt.

  100. Cher Porter April 29, 2013 at 2:20 pm #

    My favorite is the tilt-a-whirl block #669, though I like #664 also. I feel the combination of the two makes the best quilt.

  101. Nancy April 29, 2013 at 2:22 pm #

    I am really entrigued by the Kaleidoscope Star block and WOW, the Serenity fabrics are just fabulous in that pattern!! I am so impressed!

  102. Karen in CA April 29, 2013 at 2:22 pm #

    I like the hearts block the best and the second quilt that uses it. Thanks for the chance to win.

    My favorite is block 664 kaleidoscope star and I love the last quilt.

  104. VickiT April 29, 2013 at 2:27 pm #

    I really love Peg Spradlin’s Pay Day block #695 block. I have others as well but, hers is my favorite of those above.

  105. Karen Watkins April 29, 2013 at 2:28 pm #

    Tilt a Whirl is may favorite block. I think a quilt using just that block would have a lot of secondary designs that would look great. My favorite quilt is the one with Tilt-a-Whirl and Apron Strings.

  106. Patricia Davis April 29, 2013 at 2:29 pm #

    My fav is the tilt a wheel and my favorite block is the first one with the sea shells.. so fun seeing the different blocks and lay outs.

  107. Marilyn Hull April 29, 2013 at 2:30 pm #

    I just love Jocelyn Ueng of It’s Sew Emma designed #697 Trendster block. It is just so light and different; it would be beautiful in any fabric but I think I would love mine in BATIKS!!!

  108. Barbara Pricola April 29, 2013 at 2:33 pm #

    My favorite block is Marilyn Foreman’s #664 Kaleidoscope Star, and my favorite quilt is the one in which Celine’s block is set with Marilyn’s Kaleidoscope Star block #664 creating a diagonal trellis effect. It is fantastic, and the Serenity fabrics are beautiful.

  109. Patty Happel April 29, 2013 at 2:39 pm #

    I love the Kaleidoscope Star and the quilt using it at the end of your post. Also love the fabric you’ve used. Thanks for the chance to win.

  110. Kris B April 29, 2013 at 2:43 pm #

    The #664 Kaleidoscope Star is my favorite. My favorite quilt is the last one posted. But my most favorite is the fabric! Love the colors!

  111. Joan H. April 29, 2013 at 2:48 pm #

    I like the quilt which combines the quilt blocks “Tilt a Whirl” #669 and “Apron Strings”#687. My favorite block is Chris Hoover’s “Tilt a Whirl”

  112. Rochelle April 29, 2013 at 2:57 pm #

    #664 Is my favorite block, I love how the shells were used! I loved the final quilt which used the Kaleidoscope Star & Celine’s block make a beautiful quilt! After attending your
    lecture at Quilts & Treasures in ELongmeadow MA last year, I have found myself trying to use panels & blocks together in a whole new way!

  113. Deb April 29, 2013 at 3:00 pm #

    I think I’d pick Kaleidoscope Star, too. They’re all very pretty. I’m going to love the blog hop!

  114. Ellen April 29, 2013 at 3:01 pm #

    I love #687 Apron Strings and the quilt using Celine’s block with Chris Hoover’s Tilt a Whirl block #669

  115. Annaleena April 29, 2013 at 3:08 pm #

    I like most kaleidoscope block and the last quilt.

  116. LoriL April 29, 2013 at 3:09 pm #

    I like the kaleidoscope block. The last quilt combo you put together using the kaleidoscope block is my favorite quilt combo. It was fun to see each block in the same color schemes. I have never seen that before. Would love to win a copy of the magazine.

  117. cynthia April 29, 2013 at 3:15 pm #

    Love the Kaleidoscope block, and the last quilt is my favorite, if I had to choose just one!

    Thanks for showing all these fantastic two-block quilts–the pattern play is so fascinating when you combine blocks next to each other. I like doing sampler quilts, but I am always wondering what the blocks would look like set next to another block!

  118. Elaine Trotter April 29, 2013 at 3:32 pm #

    I love the fussy cut of the seashells on Chris Hoover of Whirligig Designs Tilt-a-Whirl block #669, For the quilt, I like Celine’s block set with Marilyn’s Kaleidoscope Star block #664. Thank you.

  119. Cy April 29, 2013 at 3:36 pm #

    I really like the kalidiscopestar #664, and for the quilt I choose, the one with Marilyn’s and Celine’s blocks very calming.

  120. E. Engman April 29, 2013 at 3:37 pm #

    I like the Trendsetter block best (though all are darling) and the quilt using Trendsetter and Hearts together–especially in the colors shown.

  121. Gloria Meyer April 29, 2013 at 3:43 pm #

    Difficult choice, but I kept coming back to the Apron Strings block. In a quilt, I am drawn to the Apron Strings block with Marjorie’s Hearts block. STUNNING!!!

  122. Odette Therrien April 29, 2013 at 3:52 pm #

    I just admire everyone who is so creative and talented. I am partial to the first block and the first quilt. They won my heart immediately.

  123. Judy Heffer April 29, 2013 at 3:52 pm #

    I really like the kaleidescope block and the last quilt. They are both beautiful.

  124. Sandra Body April 29, 2013 at 3:53 pm #

    Love Chris Hoover’s block paired with Celine’s block to produce a stunning quilt which I will try to duplicate – but it is number ???? on my ‘to do; list.

  125. Jitka April 29, 2013 at 3:55 pm #

    I like Celine #687 Apron Strings block. I also like combination with Whirl block #669.

  126. Vicki H April 29, 2013 at 4:03 pm #

    My favorite block is the Tilt-a-Whirl block, and the quilt I like most is Apron Strings paired with Tilt-a-whirl.

  127. Donna Joy April 29, 2013 at 4:10 pm #

    Tilt-A-Whirl is fun loving and i like it with Celine’s block in a quilt. Thanks for the give away, love to see all the different fabric and block combinations.

  128. Tami Chaulk April 29, 2013 at 4:14 pm #

    I like the quilt that combines block #688 and block #697. I really like the shells in the fabric that’s used for the border. Thanks for the chance to win Vickie’s book!

  129. Susan April 29, 2013 at 4:15 pm #

    My favorite block is #664 Kaleidoscope and my favorite quilt is the one with that same block combined with Celine’s block. Divine!

  130. Becky in Georgia April 29, 2013 at 4:20 pm #

    My favorite block is the whirly Gig block. My favorite quilt is the last one, Celine’s block with Marilyn’s Kalidescope Star block. Great way to show case this fabric. Thanks!

  131. Karen K Wright April 29, 2013 at 4:20 pm #

    block: #669
    quilt top: In this final quilt, Celine’s block is set with Marilyn’s Kaleidoscope Star block #664, and creates a diagonal trellis effect

  132. LIsa E April 29, 2013 at 4:20 pm #

    Very cool set of blocks. I love the way you showed how they play together. I pick Trendster as my favorite block. My favorite quilt is Marjorie’s Hearts block #688 & Jocelyn’s Trendster block #697. Enjoy the Bahamas.

  133. C Walker April 29, 2013 at 4:31 pm #

  134. Dawn Koby April 29, 2013 at 4:39 pm #

  135. Deborah April 29, 2013 at 5:04 pm #

    I choose the second block, and the last quilt that are shown. The fabric is very pretty, so serene, just lovely.

  136. sandinthewindowsills April 29, 2013 at 5:06 pm #

    My favorite block is #664 Kaleidoscope Star and my favorite quilt is the last one you showed, which uses it. I love the fabric you used.

  137. Nancy Angerer April 29, 2013 at 5:07 pm #

    This was an interesting exercise. I selected both the block and the quilt and later realized the quilt I liked contained the block I chose. The block is Tilt-a-Whirl #669 by Chris Hoover, and the quilt is the one where Chris’s block is set with Marilyn’s Kaleidoscoope Star block #664.

  138. Audrey Buchinger April 29, 2013 at 5:10 pm #

    I like the very last one. Thank you for putting so many together–very interesting!!
    aa.buchinger@yahoo.com

  139. reblyn April 29, 2013 at 5:32 pm #

    I don’t have a favorite block or quilt. I like to see blocks made using different colors because it can change the whole look of the quilt.

  140. Marie April 29, 2013 at 5:42 pm #

    What fun! I like the Kaleidoscope block and my favorite combo is your final quilt! Its amazine what happens when you combine blocks!

  141. Carol J April 29, 2013 at 5:45 pm #

    Hmmm, decisions, decisions…. I like Marilyn’s Kaleidoscope Star, but for the quilt choice I really like the one that uses Celine and Chris’s blocks in it. Can’t wait to see the newest collection of blocks – thank you for keeping us in the loop Patti!

  142. Lindy Duree April 29, 2013 at 5:45 pm #

    I love the simplicity of the combination of Block #688 and #697. I know I could make that quilt now. I consider myself still a beginner and I love it whe people make beautiful things that I can copy.

  143. Joyce Mitchell April 29, 2013 at 5:45 pm #

    My favorite block is #688 Hearts Around & I like the quilt where you combined it with #697 Trendster – great combination. Thanks for sharing & thanks for the chance to win.

  144. Simone Frotten April 29, 2013 at 5:54 pm #

    My favorite block is 688 Hearts Around and the quilt combination with 697 is really different. Hope to win :)

  145. Robin April 29, 2013 at 5:54 pm #

    LOVE Marilyn’s Kaleidoscope Star. The design is fabulous, and as I like all things beachy, the Serentiy fabric makes this one that I’ll add to my “to do” list!

  146. Deb in Morrisburg April 29, 2013 at 6:00 pm #

    Kaleidoscope Star #664 is my favourite block and I really liked your last quilt which combined it with #687 Celine’s Apron Strings. What soothing soft colours. You are always such an inspiration. Thanks Patti

  147. Sandy (aka Stitches) April 29, 2013 at 6:04 pm #

    I like block # 664 and I like the last quilt where it is combined with Celine’s Apron Strings block..

  148. Patricia S April 29, 2013 at 6:06 pm #

  149. Georgie April 29, 2013 at 6:07 pm #

    My favorite block is #664 Kaleidoscope Star. I collect shells & I like how she set off the seashells in the center. Very nice. For the favorite quilt I chose the last one where this block is used with Celine’s block. The 2 compliment each other very well.

  150. Agnes Dotson April 29, 2013 at 6:18 pm #

    Hard decisions ….but i like the last quilt with my favorite– Celine’s block 687 and Marilyn’s kaleidoscope star block #664 combined. The trellis design just pops right out and makes everything flow nicely. All of the designs are wonderful and the fabric is great. Thanks for a chance to win.

  151. Vivian April 29, 2013 at 6:19 pm #

    My favorite block is kaleidoscope star and my favoite quilt is Celine’s block is set with Marilyn’s Kaleidoscope Star block. I love the colors for all of them, very Caribbean.

  152. Kathy Spruill April 29, 2013 at 6:23 pm #

    Love the pay day block #695 the block shows off the fabrics used beautifly and has given me an idea for my eldest sons quilt. He longs to retire where shorts and flipflops can be worn all year long.

  153. Shan Fawcett April 29, 2013 at 6:33 pm #

    I love the Tilt-a-Whirl block but couldn’t go past Apron Strings for the quilt – it looks really complex.

  154. pam April 29, 2013 at 6:37 pm #

    i LOVE the tilt-a-whirl block AND the trellis quilt

  155. k April 29, 2013 at 6:42 pm #

    Your fabrics are so fun…and we always need more.

  156. Capi Cohen April 29, 2013 at 6:52 pm #

    Kaleidoscope combined with Apron Strings is my favorite quilt, but I like the Hearts Around block alone. I used Northcott Silks over 20 years ago for smocked dresses and they were some of my favorite fabrics…and still are.

  157. Laura Peterson April 29, 2013 at 6:57 pm #

    These blocks and quilts are beautiful and so fresh…lovely colors and design. My favorite block is Jocelyn Ueng’s #697 Trendster and favorite quilt is the first one using the combination of Marjorie’s Hearts block #688 & Jocelyn’s block.

  158. Helen Bazinet April 29, 2013 at 6:58 pm #

    Love the block with the sea shells or is it the fabric, love seashells.

  159. Roberta Miller April 29, 2013 at 7:06 pm #

    My vote goes to block 664- and the last layout. I like how the print fits in the center of the kalaidescope star.

  160. deni schwendiman April 29, 2013 at 7:13 pm #

    I love the Tilt-A-Whirl block and my favorite quilt is the last one–Kaleidoscope and Tilt-a-Whirl together.

  162. Lynda April 29, 2013 at 7:20 pm #

    I like the hearts all around block and the quilt that combines it with apron string, beautiful fabric

  163. Kay Ahr April 29, 2013 at 7:23 pm #

    I like the last quilt best — looks like those little pools of water I’ve found around rocky beaches. My favorite block is the first one. Love the way you fussy cut for the center.

  164. thequiltedcat April 29, 2013 at 7:29 pm #

    My favorite block is #697 – Trendster. The quilts were all really great so it was hard to choose, but I’ll go with the final quilt with the diagonal trellis effect.

  165. marlene carpes April 29, 2013 at 7:33 pm #

    Eu amei o bloco 697 e a combinação Jocelyn Ueng. Obrigada pela chance de participar, amo seus tecidos

  166. Janice F. Williamson April 29, 2013 at 7:35 pm #

    I sew much liked Peg Sradlin’s Pay Day block #695. It was sew cool and peaceful looking – it spoke to me somehow. I also liked the quilt using Celine’s and Chris’ blocks #687 & #669. It was charming and I like the Irish Chain effect. Thanks for the chance to win!

  167. Wendy April 29, 2013 at 7:38 pm #

  170. SandyB April 29, 2013 at 8:06 pm #

    The kaleidoscope block is my favorite!! The whole fabric collection is very soothing. I love the pairing of it with the tilt a whirl in the blocks on point quilt! Beautiful and inspiring….

  173. Margaret Parks April 29, 2013 at 8:22 pm #

    They are all so lovely, but I have say Apron Strings is my pick!

  174. Barb Johnson April 29, 2013 at 8:22 pm #

    I like the Kaleidoscope star block best. My favorite quilt is the one where you combined Marjorie’s Hearts block #688 & Jocelyn’s Trendster block #697. I hope you are enjoying your time on the beach!

  175. Roberta April 29, 2013 at 8:26 pm #

    Gorgeous blocks, quilts, and fabrics, all of them! The block I like best is Tilt-a-Whirl #669 and the quilt I like best is the third one, which I see has the Tilt-a-Whirl block in it. I guess I know what block I need to make first when I get the magazine! Thanks for the chance to win!

  177. Suann April 29, 2013 at 8:39 pm #

    Love this colorway!

  178. Carla G April 29, 2013 at 8:43 pm #

  180. Ruth Alf April 29, 2013 at 8:48 pm #

  181. MarciaW April 29, 2013 at 8:49 pm #

    Celine’s block seems to play well with others. My favorite is the final quilt, where Celine’s block is set with Marilyn’s Kaleidoscope Star block #664. The two together are wonderful. Thanks for the chance to win some Serenity, and use it to make these blocks.

  182. Joan April 29, 2013 at 8:51 pm #

  184. Teresa Perry April 29, 2013 at 8:55 pm #

    My favorite block is the first block with the sea shells circling in the center. I love the first quilt with the combination of blocks 688 and 697 – it really fits the name of the fabric line – Serenity.

  185. Pam M. April 29, 2013 at 8:58 pm #

    Trendster is tops for me!

  186. joyce April 29, 2013 at 9:01 pm #

    #688 is just lovely, of course they are all wonderful, hard to pick just one.
    Joyce

  187. Florence Kauma April 29, 2013 at 9:03 pm #

    #664 is very unusual. I like quilts that do not have the usual blocks. The kaleidoscope design is very pretty and not the norm. The colors are very nice.

  188. Sherri Moore April 29, 2013 at 9:03 pm #

    What a fun idea to have blocks up for review! Thanks for doing this! My favorite block is #688 Hearts Around and my favorite quilt combination is blocks #688 and #697.

  189. Jenny April 29, 2013 at 9:05 pm #

    It’s a tie between #688 and #697 for me. I love those two! And together in the quilt, they are awesome!

  190. Quilty Ruth Wesseling April 29, 2013 at 9:12 pm #

    I love Marilyn’s #664 Kaleidoscope Star and the quilt that combines that block with Celines.

  191. Linda J Betts April 29, 2013 at 9:15 pm #

    I really love the block Jocelyn Ueng of It’s Sew Emma designed, #697 Trendster. I agree about the movement of the block…keeps the interesting going.

  192. Deb G April 29, 2013 at 9:16 pm #

    I love Peg Spradlins block Pay day #695. It is just so peaceful yet thoughtful. The quilt I liked best, it was hard to choose, they are all really pretty so I choose them all !

  193. Mary Jo April 29, 2013 at 9:17 pm #

    I love the Pay Day block and the Tilt a Whirl block BOTH!! The quilt Marjorie’s Hearts block #688 & Jocelyn’s Trendster block #697 quilt is my favorite!

  194. Just J April 29, 2013 at 9:17 pm #

    I love your use of the Serenity fabric and the way your combined different blocks. So many ideas, so little time.

  195. Kristy Boule April 29, 2013 at 9:32 pm #

    I like Celine’s block (#687) the best because it changes the look of whatever block it’s paired with. I most like the final quilt sample which pairs Celine’s block with Marilyn’s kaleidescope star.
    Ooh, the possibilities!!

  196. Anda April 29, 2013 at 9:34 pm #

    I love the Apron Strings block and especially like it combined with the Hearts block!

  197. Sherry B April 29, 2013 at 9:35 pm #

    Love it when you start combining blocks! They’re all cool, but I really like Jocelyn Ueng’s #697 Trendster and the first quilt with this block & block #688! Thanks for the great ideas.

  198. Lani Belch April 29, 2013 at 9:36 pm #

    I love the combination of 688 and 697. I loved getting lost in the blocks. great movement.

  199. lauraingalls1986 April 29, 2013 at 9:37 pm #

    I like the #697 Trendster and the second quilt, the one with Trendster in it.

  200. kathy jackson April 29, 2013 at 9:45 pm #

    Celine’s block is so wonderful with all the blocks but may favorite block is #664 and the quilt that contains it.

  201. Lori S April 29, 2013 at 9:48 pm #

    I like the #664 Kaleidescope star the best, and I think your final quilt layout including that block is my favorite as well. What a soothing color palette. Thanks for the chance to win!

  202. Donna Phelps April 29, 2013 at 9:54 pm #

    I knew the answer as soon as saw it; I LOVE #664 Marilyn’s Kaleidoscope Star Block . When used in the quilt, this block brings it all together. Beautiful!

  203. jmniffer April 29, 2013 at 9:57 pm #

  204. Maureen April 29, 2013 at 10:05 pm #

    I really like Marjorie’s “hearts around” block & it looks so nice shown with the fabric you chose. All of the quilts are fabulous & I would have to say that the last one with the trellis effect would be my favourite. Thanks so much for a chance at the give-away!

  205. Julie in WA April 29, 2013 at 10:13 pm #

  207. Carol Sc April 29, 2013 at 10:25 pm #

    Kaleidoscope Star is my favorite block — made in almost any fabric — and my favorite quilt is the combo of that block along with the Apron Strings block. — what a cool quilt and so restful in the fabrics you used.

  208. Laura N April 29, 2013 at 10:36 pm #

    They’re all great, but I really like the Trendster block and the quilt with Marjorie’s Hearts and Trendster.

  209. Beth Patrick April 29, 2013 at 10:37 pm #

    I loved the last quilt, so guess my favorite block is the kaleidoscope star! I have to go find the Abril, too. It our hot Texas summers this will make me feel cool and calm. Pick me!

  210. Mom C April 29, 2013 at 10:43 pm #

    Love Marjorie’s Hearts block #688 & Jocelyn’s Trendster block #697. Serenity is such a great choice for all the blocks. Love the softness of the blues and greens. Thanks.

    I like Jocelyn Ueng’s block #697 Trendster and the quilt combination of Marjorie’s Hearts block #688 Jocelyn’s Trendster block #697.

  213. Pamela R in Leaburg April 29, 2013 at 11:46 pm #

    You demonstrated several great possibilities. Celine’s block was truly amazing when combined with the other blocks. loved both the 2nd and 3rd quilt sample–and the color palette too.

  214. Kathy Griffin April 30, 2013 at 12:09 am #

    I really like #664 – I love shells and the ocean colors and the quilt that combines the Hearts and Trendsters flows together so beautifully.

  215. Sandhya Karandikar April 30, 2013 at 12:09 am #

    Celine Perkins of Perkins Dry Goods always has a block in 100 Blocks, and #687 is Apron Strings. This block is my favourite and I like this quilt , This is a combination of Marjorie’s Hearts block #688 & Jocelyn’s Trendster block #697.
    Love the way you have used blues to make all the blocks looks so cool.

    The Kaleidoscope star is my fave, because I love stars and it looks so good in seashell faric… no, wait! The Trendster block is cool… and look at it in the first quilt! It’s awesome how the blocks work together!
    I love the blog hop, and seeing these blocks in alternate fabrics! Thanks!

    I’m a fan of Celine’s block set with Marilyn’s Kaleidoscope Star block. As a quilt I wouldn’t have tried it that way & I like it!

  218. Jane B April 30, 2013 at 12:29 am #

    I’m loving Kaleidoscope Star. I’m working on a Quilt of Valor, so this block would fit right in.

    I liked the quilt where you put blocks 688 and 697 together. Individually, I liked the Payday block best, though it’s hard to choose just one…

  220. Lovie Ball April 30, 2013 at 12:31 am #

    My favorite block is #664 Kaleidoscope Star, love working with kaleidoscope blocks, and mirror images. “Hearts Around” is a wonderful alternate block.

  221. Ginny Lawliss April 30, 2013 at 12:46 am #

    Really like the movement in 697, and my favorite quilt is the combo of 697 and 688. I think these two block could be used in so many different quilt patterns.

  222. Mary Green April 30, 2013 at 12:49 am #

    I like the Kaleidoscope Star, for it’s movement but also for those beautiful big shells in the center fabric. I like the diagonal trellis created in the quilt using this block too.
    I’m heading to Hawaii for my very first visit ever and have been shopping for clothes, and the soft blues in your prints are gorgeous.

  223. Patty April 30, 2013 at 12:51 am #

    I liked the Kaleidoscope Star block the best. I really liked how Celine’s Apron Strings block #687 was combined with Marjorie’s Hearts block.

  224. Lisa McCammon April 30, 2013 at 12:56 am #

    So hard to choose! Initially my favorite block was Peg Spradlin’s Pay Day block #695 – and I loved the fabric. But when I look at the quilts, the Celine’s block set with Marilyn’s Kaleidoscope Star block #664 really caught my eye.

  225. usairdoll April 30, 2013 at 1:27 am #

    The last quilt is my favorite, hard choice though as they are all beautiful. Sigh!

    Thank you for a great giveaway and a chance to win. I’m hoping I can still sneek my entry in on time. ;)

    I really like Hearts Around!

  227. Cee Dee April 30, 2013 at 2:05 am #

    Apron strings set on point Looks very interesting . Makes you look twice to see the real block.

  228. Diana Nelson April 30, 2013 at 2:34 am #

    I liked Jocelyn Ueng block and the combination of her block with Marjorie’s Hearts which is the first quilt. Thank you for the giveaway which I would so like to win.

  229. Chris Campbell April 30, 2013 at 2:44 am #

    I really love #664 kaleidoscope block and my favourite quilt is this block teamed with Celine’s. I love the colours of the serenity fabric. Thanks for the chance to win. I am a quilter from New Zealand.

  230. Connie A. April 30, 2013 at 5:32 am #

    Marilyn’s Kaleidoscope Star block is probably my favourite and the last quilt is stunning. Makes me think of star fish on the beach!

  231. Joan April 30, 2013 at 6:19 am #

    I liked #669, the blocks almost look like fish swimming.

  232. Petunia Pinner ;-> April 30, 2013 at 7:18 am #

    The last one! I love the look that kaleidoscopes have!

    • Suzanne April 30, 2013 at 7:33 am #

      I definitely like the apron strings block and the quilt that uses it.

  233. Rose W April 30, 2013 at 8:04 am #

    I really like #664 Kaleidoscope Star and the quilt where it is combined with Apron Strings.

  234. Judy Smith April 30, 2013 at 8:22 am #

    Love the apron strings block and the combination you pictured.

  235. Liz April 30, 2013 at 9:00 am #

    I loved all the blocks but what really amazed me was how you put certain ones together and made some amazing quilts. I’m going to look at designing/planning quilts in a whole new way. Thank you for the inspiration.

  236. Susan Griffith April 30, 2013 at 9:48 am #

    My favorite block is the Kaleidoscope Star. I like all the settings but I think my favorite is the last one.

  237. Karen in Breezy Point April 30, 2013 at 10:35 am #

    I love Marilyn Foreman’s block and the last quilt top example!

  238. SewLindaAnn April 30, 2013 at 11:06 am #

    I know I’m late to the part for giveaways, but I wanted to say thanks for participating in the Blog Hop, I look forward to it every time. I’ve always wanted to try Kaleidoscope blocks, and I’m in love with the calming palette!

  239. Sheree April 30, 2013 at 11:37 am #

    The tilt-a-whirl block 669 is so pretty. The fabric is so nicely showcased. Thank you for all the inspiration.

  240. Kris S in WI April 30, 2013 at 12:00 pm #

    I love the Kaleidoscope Star and the quilt you made from it. I love the seashell motif on the fabric. It makes the whole thing sing. Love it.

  241. Carrie April 30, 2013 at 12:53 pm #

    I like the #664 Kaleidescope star the best

  242. Suji April 30, 2013 at 1:49 pm #

    I like all of the blocks, but my favorite has to be the Kaleidoscope Star quilt. The seashell fabric is wonderful.

  243. Cindy Hamilton April 30, 2013 at 2:13 pm #

    I like Celine’s block and the Chris Hoover’s block especially when combined in the quilt

  244. Pat Wade April 30, 2013 at 2:55 pm #

    The seashells used in the Kaleidlscope block are beautiful. It makes me want to try more of the Serenity fabric. The beach is definitely my place of serenity.

  245. Mary Arline Smith April 30, 2013 at 4:14 pm #

    Although I was unable to visit your website yesterday, I would still like to share my comments with you. First, I so enjoyed your fabric selection for each block and each
    quilt. Next, I liked Celine’s Apron Strings first and Chris’s Tilt a Whirl second. Favorite
    quilt is with Celine’s and Chris’s blocks.

  246. Cindi C April 30, 2013 at 4:42 pm #

    I like Marjorie Rhine of Quilt Design NW designed #688 Hearts Around. Picking a favorite quilt was much more difficult. They are all beautiful.

  247. Bunnie April 30, 2013 at 5:27 pm #

    Someone else has been having a lot of fun designing quilts in Electric Quilt!!!
    I like the asymmetrical tilt a whirl and it’s quilt.

  248. Lynda McCullough April 30, 2013 at 5:41 pm #

    The quilt with #698 & #697 is very exciting and stimulating to the eye.

  249. Kathy April 30, 2013 at 10:43 pm #

    I like the Trendsetter block and the quilt it is ued in. I really love the fabrics used in all the blocks. I’m planning a quilt for my bed and may have to include some of these. THANKS

  250. Jamie Todhunter April 30, 2013 at 11:07 pm #

    I think the Whirligig Designs block looks great and I like the how the shells are highlighted in Kaleidoscope Star. The fabric line that you used looks like it would be fun to play with.

  251. Gramma Sheri May 1, 2013 at 1:02 am #

    I love the last quilt, but my favorite stand-alone block is the heart block by Marjorie

  252. Marian May 1, 2013 at 11:26 am #

    Apron strings but they are all beautiful!

  253. buntyw May 1, 2013 at 12:32 pm #

    Terrific combinations!
    I like #688 with #697

  254. Mary Ann May 1, 2013 at 9:34 pm #

    I like them all but the first one is the most interesting.

  255. Claudia May 5, 2013 at 1:11 pm #

    I got to the party late, but I like the first and fourth blocks. BUT, I love them all because of the colors you have used. So soothing.

  256. Shirley Cromarty June 29, 2013 at 9:35 pm #
