Stratford Park Meets 100 Blocks

14 Nov

Fellow Quilters,

Once again I have been invited to participate in Quiltmaker’s 100 Blocks blog tour, this time to celebrate the release of Volume 8.  As usual, I had lots of fun scanning the issue for blocks that used Northcott fabrics or were designed by quilters who publish patterns in partnership with Northcott.  This time around I found 6 blocks – #721 Pin-whirl by editor-in-chief June Dudley (she used Serenity by Cheri Strole), #733 A Night Out by creative editor Carolyn Beam (she used assorted Northcott fabrics), #742 Walk About by Chris Hoover of Whirligig, #761 Formation by new Northcott pattern designer Shayla Wolf of Sassafras Lane, #794 Orion by Celine Perkins of Perkins Dry Goods, & #800 On the Grid by Jocelyn Ueng of It’s Sew Emma.  I chose 4 of the blocks to play with this time, redoing them in Northcott’s Stratford Park collection of tonal textures.  Let’s take a look at the blocks!

Stratford Park is a collection of 6 tonal prints (pindot, ticking stripe, vine, floral, Jacobean, embroidered eyelet) in 6 color palettes: white, pearl, ivory, fawn, chocolate and ebony.  My favorite fabric in the collection is the embroidered eyelet, and I have used it in 4 quilts that I have made so far with Stratford Park.  It adds so much interest to the quilts, and quilts beautifully.

I tried combining some of the blocks in various quilt layouts, but not all of the blocks wanted to play nicely with the others – this happens sometimes.  So I made some digital quilts showcasing each block on its own.  What surprised me were the secondary patterns that were created in each quilt.  Aren’t the quilts interesting?

I am giving away a copy of this fabulous issue of Quiltmakers 100 Blocks.  For a chance to win, please post a comment by November 18th telling me which quilt you like the best.  If you’ve participated in previous blog tours, you know that I also include a couple more giveaways, so I will also give away a couple of fabric packs of Stratford Park.  And please visit the other blogs on this tour (http://www.quiltmaker.com/blogs/quiltypleasures/)  to see what the other quilters are sharing with you.  Next week I will post some pictures of my Stratford Park quilts, so please come back for a visit.  Until then, enjoy the tour!

Cheers,

Patti

    I like #2 best!
    Thanks for a great giveaway!

  2. Linda November 14, 2013 at 10:41 am #

    I love #5 the best, although #3 is a very close second. Thanks for showing how some of these blocks can be combined to make wonderful quilts.

  3. Anna Hudson November 14, 2013 at 10:44 am #

    I love pinwheel quilts–love the movement, so #1 is my favorite.

  4. Ann Flower November 14, 2013 at 10:46 am #

    #3 caught my eye first!

  5. Deb November 14, 2013 at 10:46 am #

    #1 because I love pinwheels.

  6. goonyburd November 14, 2013 at 10:48 am #

    I liked #5 the best!

    • Patsy McGrew November 14, 2013 at 11:07 am #

      I like block #3 the best. I like the movement in the quilt! Thanks for your great giveaways!

  7. michele November 14, 2013 at 10:50 am #

    #2 is my favorite. It is really unusual; looks like an overall design, but I know it is made of blocks.

  8. Anne November 14, 2013 at 10:52 am #

    Ooh, I really like #5 the best, awesome… Though I must admit it was hard to choose between 5 and 3. Thank you for showing how to mix these blocks and the color way really makes the pattern stand out. Trying hard to win this book and you have given me more inspiration to try harder! Thanks

  9. paula dalby November 14, 2013 at 10:54 am #

    I really like #2 Chris’ Walk Around the Block. Thank you for hosting the giveaway.

  10. Dawn C. November 14, 2013 at 10:57 am #

    They are all pretty, but I LOVE pinwheels too, so #1. The Stratford Park tonals are so beautiful. I hope I win!

  11. Kaci Longori. November 14, 2013 at 10:57 am #

    These are awesome…they are so formal they could be an interesting textural aspect for a formal room giving a touch of casualness….hmmmm

  12. Barb Johnson November 14, 2013 at 10:57 am #

    My comment on Celine Perkins’ blog yesterday was that I’d like to see how her Orion block would look when set “on point”. And today, my wish was granted! Great minds think alike, I guess! ;->

  13. Ina Anderson November 14, 2013 at 10:57 am #

    There are some gorgeous combinations here, but I think No 1 is the sweetest. I’m a pinwheel lover !! Thanks for a great giveaway

  14. Sherry B November 14, 2013 at 11:00 am #

    I like #3 the best, but that doesn’t mean I don’t like the others…it was the first one I thought that would go with my “style”. What a difference it makes when it is done in that color palette…the blocks look so different when put together as you did—thanks for the inspiration!

  15. Dawn Frisch November 14, 2013 at 11:01 am #

    I like number 3 although I really like number 2 too! The Stratford fabric line is just lovely! Happy quilting

  17. kathy h November 14, 2013 at 11:02 am #

    Wow, they are all so pretty. I really like #5 the best. It reminds me of a snowflake and I have been looking at lots of winter and CHristmas patterns lately.

  18. Dorothy G November 14, 2013 at 11:04 am #

    I like #5 the best but also loving the modern look of #2. I’m a visual person, so thank you for showing us how wonderful these blocks can look together. Keep up the good work!

  19. Tyne Dimitrov November 14, 2013 at 11:07 am #

  20. The Stylish Home November 14, 2013 at 11:09 am #

    I love #3! SO much movement! LOVE That you combined different people’s blocks! Thank you!!!

    • Chris November 14, 2013 at 11:10 am #

      I like #3 although I don’t know why. It just appeals to me visually.

  21. Garnet November 14, 2013 at 11:13 am #

    Super settings – all are winners – if forced to choose a favorite it would be #5

  22. Pat November 14, 2013 at 11:16 am #

    I like #1 the best, all those perfect points.

  23. kathy pfaltzgraff November 14, 2013 at 11:17 am #

  25. Tish Miller November 14, 2013 at 11:21 am #

  26. Ruth Wohlgemuth November 14, 2013 at 11:21 am #

    I like the combination blocks of Jocelyn and Chris and Celine and Chris especially in your fabric choices

  27. LizA. November 14, 2013 at 11:22 am #

    Mmmm, it’s a tough decision–they’re all great. #3 & #5 are my choices–I just can’t figure out which one I like better

  28. Janet T November 14, 2013 at 11:25 am #

    I’m torn between #5 and #3. And that was a hard decision! Nice quilts.

  29. JAnet Monahan November 14, 2013 at 11:31 am #

    I like #5. The 2 blocks make a great cohesive design.

  30. Lee Ann L. November 14, 2013 at 11:32 am #

    I am liking #4 the best because it looks more traditional! Thank you for a chance to win.

  31. barbe November 14, 2013 at 11:32 am #

    they are all great blocks but i like Chris’s Walk about

  32. Jackie H November 14, 2013 at 11:35 am #

    I like #5, they make a great combo. I love these neutral fabrics.

  33. Susan Wilkerson November 14, 2013 at 11:39 am #

    I like Chris’ block, it’s very different, they are all beautiful though! Thank you for the chance to win the block book!

  34. Janet November 14, 2013 at 11:41 am #

    #3 please. I love how the combination of blocks works!

    I love quilt number 3. Look great. Nice playing.

  36. Rebecca November 14, 2013 at 11:53 am #

    #3 quilt for me.

  37. Sandy Spence November 14, 2013 at 11:58 am #

    Love the modern feel of the quilts and the blocks. I have to say that #3 is my favorite. Probably because I like any quilt with a medalllion feel/look to it.

  38. Val November 14, 2013 at 11:59 am #

    I love quilt one. It has an uncluttered feel to it.

  39. Jacklynn Grimm November 14, 2013 at 12:05 pm #

    I like number 5 the best. Thanks for the give away!

  40. debbierhodes November 14, 2013 at 12:10 pm #

    # 5 is the one I would make love the combination

  41. SuzK November 14, 2013 at 12:13 pm #

    this line of fabric is really beautiful – quilts 5 and 3 really appeal to me – I love the secondary patterns they create.

  42. Jeanette Smith November 14, 2013 at 12:13 pm #

    I like #3 the best!

  43. Sandy November 14, 2013 at 12:20 pm #

    #5 is really beautiful – I’m drawn to #3 as well. I love seeing what these blocks can do — and I’m very drawn to monochromatic.

  44. Lisa Marie November 14, 2013 at 12:21 pm #

    Wow, I love seeing the blocks turned into virtual quilts! I like #5 best, but #3 is a close second. I haven’t seen this fabric line, but it sure looks lovely!

  45. Sherry November 14, 2013 at 12:21 pm #

    #5 jumped out at me as block I would definitely like to try.

  46. thomasnews November 14, 2013 at 12:25 pm #

  50. J November 14, 2013 at 12:39 pm #

    I really like June’s block as well as Celine’s block, a toss up which I like the most
    .

  51. Darlene November 14, 2013 at 12:48 pm #

    I like quilt #3. Very pretty fabrics.

  52. Kathryn Knox November 14, 2013 at 12:52 pm #

  58. billiemick November 14, 2013 at 1:16 pm #

    I like #3 the best, but they are all wonderful.

  59. Linda Wong November 14, 2013 at 1:21 pm #

    I enjoyed them all but if I had to start with one, I would do the pinwheel pattern.

  60. Ellen November 14, 2013 at 1:32 pm #

    I like #5 the best.

  61. Kathy November 14, 2013 at 1:35 pm #

    My favorite is #2. But it was a very difficult choice. kathleendotlutzatcomcastdotnet

  62. Quilting Tangent November 14, 2013 at 1:37 pm #

    I like #3 the best, combines different blocks, and make a great top.

  63. Janine Huisjen November 14, 2013 at 1:40 pm #

    These are all great, but I think #5 is my favorite. Beautiful fabrics!

  64. Darla Dishman November 14, 2013 at 1:41 pm #

    Thanks for the giveaway. I like #3 and #5. But I would do all. LOL Quilters love a change and new ideals, never enough.

  65. lotsofteapots November 14, 2013 at 1:47 pm #

    #3 is awesome, but so is #1. I can’t wait to get my copy and play!

  66. Cheryl November 14, 2013 at 1:47 pm #

    I Like #5, it looks like a jewel in a crown.

  67. Elizabeth Dale November 14, 2013 at 1:52 pm #

    Wow! That’s hard to choose! I like quilts # 1, 3 and 4 about equally, but if I’d have to choose just one it would be 3….or 4.

  68. Nancy November 14, 2013 at 1:52 pm #

    I really like #2 but they are all beautiful !

  69. Helen November 14, 2013 at 1:56 pm #

    #2 is my favorite

  71. v dale November 14, 2013 at 1:59 pm #

    I like quilt #3, but they are all pretty nice.

  72. lizd6 November 14, 2013 at 2:03 pm #

    This is a hard choice to make since I like #1, 3, and 4. If I have to choose one, I’ll choose 3….or 4!

  73. MasWhatknots November 14, 2013 at 2:05 pm #

    Celine’s Orion block looks like it would pop off the blanket! I think it has many possibilities!

  74. MoeWest November 14, 2013 at 2:08 pm #

    I like quilt #3.

  75. Debby November 14, 2013 at 2:10 pm #

    Great blocks! Hard to choose but I think I like #1 best! Thanks for the chance to win!

  76. Kaye M. November 14, 2013 at 2:11 pm #

    I like June’s block made up as a quilt, it has a definite 3-D effect!

  77. Linda Webster November 14, 2013 at 2:11 pm #

    My favourite is design #5. The overall pattern is amazing.

  78. Elaine Morgan November 14, 2013 at 2:16 pm #

    #5 catches my eye!

  79. SoccerMom November 14, 2013 at 2:17 pm #

    I like #1 the best, but #5 is a close second.

  80. Angele R. November 14, 2013 at 2:29 pm #

    I love your palette! I can see in my mind so many quilts! This would be great to win. I love the different settings in your quilts. I think my favorites would be 2 and 3.

  81. kaylace November 14, 2013 at 2:32 pm #

    Thank you for the quilt layouts… it sure helps me to see a block in action. Speaking of blocks I like the one that looks like a woven basket or worms on the move… thank you.

  82. Melanie November 14, 2013 at 2:33 pm #

    I love Walk around the Block! And the fabrics (in all of them) are delish!

  83. Joanna November 14, 2013 at 2:35 pm #

    I like quilts 3 and 4 the best. The Grid Block is my favorite of this group. Thanks for the giveaway.

  84. Rose November 14, 2013 at 2:35 pm #

    Jocelyn’s & Celine’s blocks as a quilt is my favorite. Thanks for the chance to win.

  85. Madeline November 14, 2013 at 2:41 pm #

    I like #3 the best, but I really love the fabrics! I think I’d like the lace one, too, been looking for a good background fabric.

  86. Texana November 14, 2013 at 2:42 pm #

    Quilt #3 really grabs my eye. Love the Stratford Park fabrics too. Thanks for being a sponsor.

  87. Carmen N November 14, 2013 at 2:43 pm #

    I like 1, 3 & 5, but probably #3 the best. I love the fabrics.

  91. suzanne0009 November 14, 2013 at 3:02 pm #

    I like # 5 the best but they are all beautiful.

  92. Judy in OR November 14, 2013 at 3:17 pm #

    I really like #3 because of how the light and dark fabric give the star an added dimension plus star blocks are one of my favorites.

  93. Sandy Curtis November 14, 2013 at 3:19 pm #

    I like # 5 the best.

  94. Elaine McKenna November 14, 2013 at 3:21 pm #

    My favourite one is Number 5. And I love the way the fabrics bring it to life. I have never participated in the tour before and and very thankful for the opportunity for a chance at the giveaway. It’s nice to have a chance being in Canada. Most contests are for US only. Thank you very much!!

  95. Mel Meister November 14, 2013 at 3:24 pm #

    I must say I found Walk About by Chris Hoover very different and interesting…..

  99. Jeanne in Ohio November 14, 2013 at 3:49 pm #

    I love the modern vibe of #2.

  100. Regina November 14, 2013 at 3:52 pm #

    very hard – #2 and #4 are both appealing for different reasons but much would depend on quilting capabilities to finish all that open space in #2

  101. KT November 14, 2013 at 3:54 pm #

    I love your combination of the blocks in #3.

  102. Joyce Mitchell November 14, 2013 at 4:02 pm #

  107. Kris S in WI November 14, 2013 at 4:21 pm #

  128. Melody Lutz November 14, 2013 at 6:12 pm #

    Chris’ quilt is gorgeous !

  129. Cynthia H. November 14, 2013 at 6:12 pm #

  130. patchworkrose November 14, 2013 at 6:19 pm #

  141. Charlene McCullough November 14, 2013 at 7:03 pm #

    This is my first tour and I have had such fun. It’s a pleasure to see all the different blocks and the history behind them. The designers and fun to read about too. I think I like Jocelyn and Celine the best. Thank you so very much.

  142. Loriann F November 14, 2013 at 7:15 pm #

    My favorite was #5.

  143. Sally November 14, 2013 at 7:20 pm #

    I love #3 as it radiates out from the center. I would really love to make this quilt.

  144. Rachel Dreher November 14, 2013 at 7:22 pm #

    Number 2 is my favorite! I just finished a quilt using that block, but I like your arrangement quiet a bit too! Different fabrics with a new arrangement would make the quilts look completely different.

  162. Nancy Karas November 14, 2013 at 8:34 pm #

    The combination I like the most – really love it – is using the Walk About block with the Orion block. It develops such a light and airy appearance- reminds me of lace. Truly beautiful!!!!

  163. Sharon Green November 14, 2013 at 8:40 pm #

  180. Maureen November 14, 2013 at 9:42 pm #

    Wow, they’re all great but #2 is my favourite. I like how it flows & how different it is from what I usually lean toward. It caught my eye! Thanks for a chance at the give-away!

  181. Pat Evans November 14, 2013 at 9:42 pm #

    My favorite is #5, but #3 is also appealing.

  182. marilyntucker November 14, 2013 at 9:46 pm #

    I love Jocelyn’s #4 the best. I also like #5 Orion.

  183. Andresa November 14, 2013 at 10:07 pm #

  185. Maryellen November 14, 2013 at 10:09 pm #

    Awesome! Thanks for playing with a few blocks in one quilt! I loved 3, mostly because I didn’t expect the very modern block to mix with the more traditional. It was surprising, and fun!

  186. sandy Lowery November 14, 2013 at 10:12 pm #

    If I can only choose one it will have to be #3. Thanks for a chance at your giveaway.

  187. Joy November 14, 2013 at 10:14 pm #

  188. Donna November 14, 2013 at 10:14 pm #

  189. Siew Khim November 14, 2013 at 10:19 pm #

    I like #1 June’s block – beautiful and creative ! Would love to win some surprises. :)

  190. Carole Williams November 14, 2013 at 10:20 pm #

    I like #3 the best with #5 running a close second.

  191. Sue C November 14, 2013 at 10:29 pm #

  198. Cecilia November 14, 2013 at 11:02 pm #

    My favorite is #3. I love Celine’s block and like the way it plays with Chris’ block.

  200. Stephanie Matz November 14, 2013 at 11:06 pm #

    Wow, I always love what Northcott brings to our party! These are great quilts and I love the colors. Hard to choose, but I think it has to be #5 because it is so striking and different from more traditional designs. Thanks for sharing.

  201. Linda Wayda November 14, 2013 at 11:08 pm #

    I like #5 the best, it is round, yet precise and ordered.

  202. Margaret Andrews November 14, 2013 at 11:16 pm #

  204. Cheryl Robertson November 14, 2013 at 11:26 pm #

    I just love #3 Celine’s Orion’s block. It showcases the Elegance of the Stratford Park line in this stunning quilt. I bought Volume 6 and wore it out already. Can’t wait to receive volume 8 and try out the many possibilities with Stratford Park. Did I say Gorgeous!?

  205. Marly November 14, 2013 at 11:43 pm #

    Setting #5 is my favourite, although they are all super. Thanks for the chance to win a copy of the magazine or fabric.

  206. Debra Neiman November 14, 2013 at 11:58 pm #

  209. Marion Kersnick November 15, 2013 at 12:18 am #

  210. Terrie T November 15, 2013 at 12:18 am #

    I like the June block as a quilt

  211. Gail Foster November 15, 2013 at 12:20 am #

    They are all beautiful, but I like Quilt #1 the best!

  212. Sue November 15, 2013 at 12:24 am #

    I love quilt #1 the best, because of the contrasting and defining border.

  213. Carol W November 15, 2013 at 12:24 am #

    I especially enjoy seeing the blocks side by side in the quilt mock-ups. The blocks look very different put together!

  214. Loretta T November 15, 2013 at 12:25 am #

    Really like #5!

  215. Darlene Krystal November 15, 2013 at 12:30 am #

  218. Laura November 15, 2013 at 12:46 am #

    My favorite is #3 with #4 coming in a close second. Three catches my eye more and makes me want to wrap myself in it.

  219. Pamela Reim November 15, 2013 at 12:46 am #

    I like several but #3 is one I might make; loved the coloration too!

  220. usairdoll November 15, 2013 at 12:54 am #

    How clever! I have not designed a block yet what a great way to design a quilt using two or three different blocks. Loved all the samples you showed. I’m making a BOM my LQS is doing and it’s using all neutrals, love your fabric.

    If I have to pick just one, I would have to go with #5, but they’re all interesting!

  225. missmoozie November 15, 2013 at 1:37 am #

    What beautiful quilts! How can I only pick one? They are all wonderful and I can think of people in my life who each fit a different quilt. For me, I’d choose #5, so pretty! Thanks for your giveaway and I’m a new follower as well.

  240. Diantha Howard November 15, 2013 at 2:38 pm #

    Hi, these are cool! I think I like #3 the best, though #5 is a close second.

  242. Carolyn Kerr November 15, 2013 at 3:16 pm #

    I love all the quilts, but the ones that has Celine’s block in it catches my eye. Love Northcott fabrics… it’s the only line that I can identify by touch alone! Thanks for the opportunity to win some goodies.

  245. Stephanie Bullock November 15, 2013 at 6:20 pm #

  246. Betsey Ryan November 15, 2013 at 6:24 pm #

    Betsey Ryan

  247. Terry H. November 15, 2013 at 8:19 pm #

    I like #3 Celine and Chris’s blocks together. This has been a fun blog hop.

  248. Elaine November 15, 2013 at 8:37 pm #

    My favorite is no 5, Jocelyn and Celine’s blocks combined.

    Northcott, cottons that feel like silk, how true, love Northcott fabric.

  249. Raine November 15, 2013 at 10:08 pm #

    I like #5 the best b/c I liked both blocks it was created from but together the entire quilt looks like one giant ice crystal/ snow flake so the “secondary pattern” from these 2 blocks combine to make one giant “block” ; beautiful ! (Also I would love to win the contest and make #5 myself).

  250. Pat Bean November 15, 2013 at 10:18 pm #

    Tough choice! #1 just edged out #5. Love the fabric. Love the design. Thank you so much for sharing!

    number 3

  258. Joanne Harris November 16, 2013 at 9:53 am #

    I think Chris’ Walk About was strikingly different. I used your Feathered Friends collection for the Sampler Quilt on page 87. What a treat to work with such lovely fabric! Thank you for being one of the corporate sponsors.

  259. Colette November 16, 2013 at 12:35 pm #

    Number 3 seems to fit so well with the fabric and the patterns.

  260. Donna Phelps November 16, 2013 at 1:53 pm #

    I really like #3 Celine’s Blocks along with Chris’ Blocks, I especially like Celine’s Block.The fabric choice really makes them work.

  261. VickiT November 16, 2013 at 4:38 pm #

    I really like #3 Lots of Celine’s blocks with some of Chris’ blocks a lot. That would make a beautiful quilt. Any of the others would be beautiful quilts also, but #3 really stands out to me.
