Hello Fellow Bloggers. We are happy to be participating in the Quiltmaker’s 100 Block’s Blog Tour. Several months ago I (Laura) was asked to submit a block for the most recent issue of this inspiring publication. The magazine is scheduled to be on the newsstands November 13th. This is a must have for all you quilt block lovers.
Here’s the block I made.
The inspiration came from a room divider I spotted at my favorite Zen Restaurant. I was enjoying a casual lunch with some of my friends after we attended one of our local quilt shows. I purchased a stack of lovely Asian prints, not knowing how I might use them until I saw this design. I’m a sucker for grid work of all sorts.
The rest was easy. Just drafting the design and inserting the fabrics into the spaces. I love it when inspiration comes easily.
Be sure to follow the blog tour the rest of this week, Nov. 5-9 at The Quiltmaker Blog Quilty Pleasure. There you will find inspiration, ideas and lots of giveaways. To be entered in a drawing to receive a copy of the magazine, please leave us a comment telling us one of your favorite sources of inspiration. Three lucky winners will be announced with my next post on December 4th.
I have jumped in a little early this week so want to make sure you don’t miss visiting the new exhibit in our Gallery. It features photos from our recent show at Alden Lane Nursery.
Enjoy and Happy Blog Touring Everyone!
