Quiltmaker's 100 Quilt Blocks & Giveaway!

Celebrating the 10th Edition of Quiltmaker's 100 Blocks!

And with the Volume 10, Quiltmaker now has a collection of 1000 great blocks!  Including this little gem on page 45, Block #953.  I call it "Spring".   *Ü*


Can you tell I just love fluffy little sheepies?  This design idea started with my "Sheep Shape" hexagon quilt (featured on the cover of Quiltmaker earlier this year), and as I'm always looking for ways to simplify... construction for this sweet little block could not be any easier!

First, it's all cut out with my fabulous AccuQuilt die-cutter using Rose of Sharon dies.  (Don't worry if you don't have one, the patterns are also located on p.75 of the magazine!)  It's all machine-applique'd with a blanket stitch and includes my favorite dimensional die-cut fabric flowers, leaves, ears and topknot; even the embroidery is all machine-stitched.


To make these soft, pliable, double-sided, non-raveling fabric 3-D applique' shapes, click to see the full >> TUTORIAL <<.



Now, what to do with your cute little block?  Here are a couple of ideas:
Single table topper/wall hanging:


Or rearrange the elements to make a sweet little runner/wall hanging scene:


And of course it will be cute as a full quilt, too!

GIVEAWAY INFO:   Win your own copy of Quiltmaker's 100 Blocks vol 10, plus a little stack of 5" Basics from Riley Blake Designs and package of Heat n Bond Ultrahold for you to create your own dimensional applique'!  Leave a comment here, and of course you are welcome to follow along via email, facebook, bloglovin, etc, but that's not a requirement to enter the contest.  What's your favorite method of applique'?  I'll select a winner on Saturday morning.  A second winner will receive Volume 10 directly from Quiltmaker.

  3. This is a very nice coincidence because I usually have Head N Bond in stock but I see that I don't. Your block, Spring, is so darn cute. It is so nice to have you show us different layouts. It just really helps us to see what you can do with a block. Thank you for being a part of this blog hop and the chance to win a copy of this awesome collector's edition of QM 100 Blocks, Volume 10.

  14. OMG! Love, love, love sheep blocks/quilts. I've got maybe 8 patterns waiting - nay, begging - to be made and you've given me one more.

    ReplyDelete
  15. I have to admit that applique isn't my favorite quilting technique, but I sure do love your bouncy sheep. It brought a huge smile to my face as it showed up on the screen this cold morning. I might have to applique this one. Thanks for sharing.

    ReplyDelete
  16. Just adorable! And a perfect design for my Rachel, which is "Ewe" in Hebrew. Can't wait to make one. Thanks for the inspiration!

    ReplyDelete
  17. Love that cute block! I'm learning to hand applique. I like using wool and hand stitching with a blanket stitch.
    It's fun to add embroidery stitches.

    ReplyDelete
  18. What a cute block! I use the same Accuquilt dies for lots of my blocks, too. I do turned edge.. raw edge...fused...you name it type applique. I always do it by machine, though. Thanks for a great block!

    ReplyDelete
  19. Can I say my favorite method is someone else doing it? I have only done a couple of small projects...nothing too strenuous and I love to use my machine but I am considering going to the dark side and heading toward a little bit of needle turn soon.

    ReplyDelete
  20. Love this block using the acquit die is a great idea!

    ReplyDelete
  21. Cute! Cute! Cute! I don't appliqué often, but when I do, I always machine applique

    ReplyDelete
  22. So far I have only tried needle turn method, but would like to "branch out"!

    ReplyDelete
  23. What a happy block--it made me smile ear-to-ear and chuckle. My favorite applique method is hand sewing with blanket stitch--I'm still a coward regarding using my machine.

    ReplyDelete
  24. How could we not love those sheep! Your block is so cute and fun. Thank you for such inspiration. The three blocks together in a wall hanging are too tempting not to make!
    I probably have the best results of applique using the freezer paper method. I like the idea of needle turn but I'm not very good at it yet. I also like the ease of using fusibles and my favorite, the blanket stitch :-)

    ReplyDelete
  25. That is so cute. My favorite method of appliqué is needle turn, but I have tried most of them.

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  36. Love those SHEEP! I am gonna try this block for sure! My favorite way to applique is freezer paper and fusible web. I have a great stitch on my machine to do the edges.. no hand sewing! Keep up the good work!

    ReplyDelete
  58. Oh, those sheep are adorable! I haven't tried appliqué. But I truly appreciate the time spent on it. I like to zip things together. I am very impatient when it comes to the finished quilt/project. But I love the results from an appliqued block.

    ReplyDelete
  59. I love the dimensional applique on your block, as well as the cute little sheep. I do more machine applique but love needle turn, too. This would be such fun to make up for a wall hanging in a baby's room!

    ReplyDelete
  60. My favorite method of applique really depends on what I'm doing -- whatever technique works for the project then that is my favorite at that moment! Your sheep block made me smile. I've got to use it to make something for my aunt who is crazy over sheep ever since she visited Ireland.

    ReplyDelete
  61. That block is just too cute! I love to hand applique but will machine applique if time is short or the project works up better by machine.

    ReplyDelete
  62. Oh my goodness. This block is too cute! I love the 3D look. I've only done one applique and it was on my Dad's quilt. I fused the circles to the block and then hand stitched around the circles. It was my first true quilt I made and I kind of winged it. LOL. :-)

    ReplyDelete
  63. Congratulations on your block being selected. I like to needle-turn applique.

  69. As soon as I win (or buy) the latest QM 100 Blocks, I choose my favorite block & do a mini wall quilt. Of course my choice is always a critter applique. I'll bet this time it will be your darling wooly sheep. I use Wonder Under for all my applique, followed by either a zig zag or buttonhole stitch.

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete

  173. This is just so adorable, it makes me smile from ear to ear! Your little sheep are always so precious, and, if possible, I think these are the cutest yet! I love to use fusible applique with a machine blanket stitch to hold everything in place. Thanks for the chance for your wonderful giveaway!

  174. I haven't done much applique'--I've liked doing the heat and bond method, though. I really like the flowers in yours. Adds some dimension.

  175. I loved your hexie sheep quilt earlier this year. I was in charge of a 5-10 minute education segment at our night meeting this year. I showed how to draft your own hexagon using a compass and ruler. Then I showed your cute sheep quilt as an example of a hexagon quilt. Many of the quilters are familiar with Grandmother's Flower Garden (which I am hand piecing now, very slowly). I love this whimsical sheep. My brothers raised purebred sheep for years and I fell in love with sheep them. Just like other animals, they have their own personalities. Congrats on another publish and along with the hexie sheep quilt, this is now on my to-do list. I hope I win a magazine.

  179. Very cute! I love hand applique and just turn cut a narrow (1/8 inch) seam and needle turn it as I go. Everytime I try fusible applique I make a mess and get frustrated.

  180. I like to machine applique, using either a zipzap or more decorative stitch to anchor the pieces. Nice block. Thanks.

  182. I love hand applique for things I hope will become heirlooms, plus I enjoy hand stitching. I do use machine applique when I want a quick result.

  184. I might have known that was your blog Deonn!!! It's so happy and fresh - that little lamb almost jumps off the block and invites you to come play with her!!! I can't wait to go over and see how you made those bright flowers. I love your designs, and this one is no exception :) Thanks for sharing it with us!
