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.

Be sure to visit the other designers on this blog tour for more prize-winning opportunities and creative inspiration!  Here's a sneak peek of what's in store:

Good luck, and thanks for playing along!  (Be sure to inlcude an email address if you are a no-reply blogger).  Thanks for visiting, and I hope to see you again soon!
      
UPDATE:  Giveaway over and winner notified.  Whew, what a fun week!

That quilt block made me giggle! Congrats on your block making the Magazine. As for a favorite method of applique I don't have a fave, I love all applique I think it adds eye candy to any quilt.

Martina said...

Such a cute block! I especially love needleturning applique.

Sandra said...

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.

Very cute block. Makes me wish for spring and winter is just getting started!

I tend to shy away from applique but have been getting braver - mostly with raw edge or satin stitched.

Your block is just so darn cute! I use machine applique

Aggiequilter said...

I'm a much more experienced piecer than appliquer, but I do love the needle-turn method I've tried. A relaxing change for me. Love your dimensional work ... thanks for the chance to win !!

Dawn said...

I love the flowers. dawnm1993 at gmail dot com

Cindy Maki said...

I like reverse applique. I love that sheep and flowers too.

Karen Smith said...

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.

alaskamarge said...

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.

Jennifer said...

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

Phyllis said...

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.

vwlady said...

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!

Kathy L said...

My favorite is hand applique.

Siouxzq64@gmail.com said...

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.

Quilted bear lady said...

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

Linda said...

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

Quilter Kathy said...

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

Elizabeth said...

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.

Loris said...

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 :-)

Judy Z said...

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

kbo said...

Machine Applique is my "go to" method, but I admire what other's do with needle turn hand applique.

Cathie said...

Machine applique is the only way I applique.

Grammie said...

I would love to make your block for my daughter who loves sheep, too. I like hand-sewn applique.

Anita said...

I do some needle turn, but mostly machine applique

Catskill Quilter said...

My favorite kind of applique is machine applique with either a very close satin stitch or a blanket stitch. I am eager to try your 3-dimensional technique!

Lovelli Quilts said...

I'm eager to try the 3-d applique. Your design is so fun!!

Zander's Blog said...

carol said...

I am new to machine applique. Looks like fun and love your happy sheet.

Rita said...

I love to do machine appliqué. It gets the job done faster for me.

Beth said...

My favorite way to appliqué is to use fusible and then hand-stitch around it. A blend of old-school and newfangled.😄

Dorothy H said...

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!

Mary said...

This Mary needs that Little LAMB!!! Love it! Thanks for a chance to win this issue.

Unknown said...

Loving your sheep too !

Unknown said...

Machine Applique, I hope to get much better at it.

I like to use a fusible, then machine applique. I adore your sheep!

Your little fluffy sheep is adorable. And the table runner is so overly cute. What a fun block. Tlhanks for sharing. I have not done machine applique yet. It is on my list to do.

Unknown said...

The little sheep is so cute!

Deborah said...

Very charming block. The only type of applique I have ever done is needleturn and it has been decades since I tried it. poladydwd(at)yahoo(dot)com

Ronna said...

Adorable! I love raw edge applique. I always say I'm going to try another but I always go back to what I love...

JoyceLM said...

Your block is so cute! I've never done applique - I'm definitely missing out. Thanks.

Unknown said...

Such an adorable block thanks for showing us how to make it. I like to do both machine and hand appliqué!

Karen said...

I love your dimensional applique. I usually do raw edge machine applique.

Debbie -- Sheltered Stitches said...

Since I've only done one applique project I;m going to have to say machine :) Love your posies :)

Lisa E said...

Currently I only do machine applique but I have ambitions to do some hand applique. "Spring" is so, so cute. That little sheep looks so happy.

Charl said...

Love the dimensional flowers!

Little Ella Lu said...

I use double sided fusible web to glue it on and then use my stretch stitch around the edges.

Pat said...

I prefer machine applique. Love your block.

Quilting Tangent said...

Cute block and table runner. Never did applique, so don't have a favorite method. 24Tangent@gmail.com

Anonymous said...

Such a happy block, and with one week-long cold snap just ending, I am already ready for spring! :)

Sarah said...

My favorite kind of applique is needle turn. Thanks! sarah@forrussia.org

lefuntz said...

Oh ewe cute little sheep you! I don't have a favorite method of appliqué. It depends on the look I'm going for.

ytsmom said...

I love the little sheep, and your runner is just adorable!

Jenny98223 said...

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.

TX quilter said...

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!

Lisa Marie said...

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.

LeAnn R said...

Very Cute. Makes me happy!

BeachQuilter said...

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.

Unknown said...

Love the lamb!

Lee Ann L. said...

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. :-)

Unknown said...

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

BillieBee (billiemick) said...

I normally like needle turn, but am getting really attached to machine applique. I love, love, love you sheep....what fun.

PegP said...

I usually use fusible machine applique. Love the sheep block!!

Rhonda said...

The first thing I thought of when I saw your block was counting flowers along with counting sheep...I know a weird imagination! Lovely block and so versatile. I mainly do machine applique.

Barbara said...

I love how you captured the spring antics of the lambs.

Lee said...

Ewe have designed a great block!! Congrats!

Annmarie said...

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.

SeeAmySew said...

Wow!!!! Would love to "Spring" into an adorable quilt using your idea!!! Thanks "Sew" much for the great tute too!!! Definitely on my to-do list!!!

cookie said...

Joy! We spent many hours with our grandfather who raised purebred Suffolk lambs. Ewe's block brings back many sweet memories. Thank you for sharing your design and your know-how. I look forward to making it into a wall hanging.

Anonymous said...

Your block is adorable and could make a nice baby quilt! I do both hand and machine applique`. When I machine applique` I use the blanket stitch also. Congrats on having your block in the magazine and thanks for a chance to win.

Pamela said...

Cute block! I haven't done much applique and when I did, it was by hand. But with arthritis settling in, I have been encouraged by the doctor to do as much as possible by machine. Your block inspires me to give it a go! Thanks.

Amy said...

Adorable! Makes me yearn for Spring!!

Rina Mason said...

Now that's my smile maker for the day. Makes me wish it were Spring already.

Susan L. said...

Adorable block! My favorite method of appliqué is fusible, but I would love to learn needle turn.

Diane said...

What a cute block! Love the flowers.

Pat V. said...

I am quite partial to fusible applique at this point in my quilting career. A tendon issue is making it quite difficult to do hand work.

Barb Johnson said...

cute, cute, cute! I love the jumping sheep. I have to admit that my favorite method of applique is 'none', LOL! I haven't done much of it, but when I have, it hasn't turned out the way it looks in the pictures :<

Tinliz said...

Adorable block. I like needle turn using freezer paper and fusible applique. The method I use depends upon the project.

The sheep is so cute! I like fusible applique. Thanks

WoolenSails said...

That is so cute, love the design. I like all types of appliqué, it all depends on the type of project I am working on. I do needle turn for primitive work and fusibles for my fun and art pieces.

Debbie

@lutzcats said...

OK...I want this on my sewing room wall! A-DORABLE!

Kathy E. said...

Just sheep...just too sweet! I'm not sure of my favorite type of applique yet. I've appliqued with a simple zig zag stitch witch kept it a bit scrappy looking. I think I want more of a finished look for most projects.

Diana said...

This is so cute! I like fusible applique.

Unknown said...

What a cute block(s), I just love it. b.j.day68@gmail.com

Walter said...

Very cool sheep! I prefer needle turn applique but some projects don't warrant the time or will be used too heavily so then I machine applique. pjrcontest@msn.com

Your little lamb is adorable. I usually do fusible applique and then do my button hole stitch by hand. Makes for a travel project.

Cindy said...

What a cute block! I love needle turn applique best. But I'm so slow at it that I do more machine applique now just to get things done. :)

Shirley in Canada said...

Way too cute!

SandyMay said...

I really like your cute little sheep. I don't applique much, but when I do, I use fusible and machine stitch a tiny zig zag or more often a buttonhole stitch. I have made flowers using a method just like yours.
swalker287 (at) aol (dot) com.

Unknown said...

I made your hexagon sheep with 1 inch hexies and it is one of my favorites ( I even won a blue ribbon in miniatures with it) and what a fun variation you did with the sheep this time, Thanks again, Kathy in Colo

Annie said...

I haven't done much applique, but I'd really like to work on my needle turn skills.

Kathy MacKie said...

I usually use a fusible but open to anything new and fun.

Barbara Washburn said...

Love the flowers and sheep. They are adorable.

pharmgirl75 said...

Such a cheerful little block. The sheep makes me smile!

baaaaa so cute! I like fusible appliqué, but I hate raw edges. I recently completed my first Hawaiian-style, and needle-turn is pretty fun.

Unknown said...

I've haven't done applique' yet, but I am intrigued by the flexibility of applique'.

margaret said...

Unknown said...

So cute! Now I know who designed this block - thank you!

Unknown said...

I adore your sheep! I wanted to decorate the nursery for our twins in a sheep theme, but my husband wasn't keen on it. Maybe for our next little one. I will be starting my first appliqué project before Christmas. I'm planning to machine stitch. We shall see how it goes!

I love to machine applique. your block is great. thanks

Michele T said...

Awwwww... That is just too sweet!!! I love to hand appliqué preferably turning the edges under, but if pressed for time will do raw edge and if I have absolutely no time I choose machine appliqué 😉

Unknown said...

I enjoy hand appliqué because I am able to do it anywhere. Your block is soooo refreshing great for springtime. Thank for a chance to win. Happy Quilting :)

I'm still working on finding my favorite method of applique. I love the look of it, but not my own results. Cute block--thanks for sharing!

Carol said...

What a sweet block! Love the sheep and the flowers! I usually prefer to do machine applique but if I want a hand-work project, sometimes I choose to do needle-turn applique.

LeAnne said...

Your sheep are so cute. If I'm going to do applique, it's going to be by machine. If I have the time to do turned applique, I then sew it down my machine.

Unknown said...

wow cute block-thanks for the preview of the blocks that was great I want to go get the book now, we all need new blocks.

cityquilter grace said...

well just finished applique of a bed size hawaiian so would have to say needleturn is my favorite method...and what an adorable block! we in maine always feel that way about spring after a long cold winter....thanks for participating!

Dee said...

I love sheep, in fact, my sewingroom is decorated in sheep - I;m in love.....

Sharon J. Hughson said...

I think the lamb would be perfect for spring placemats. I love machine appliques b/c it is QUICK! Also I have arthritis in my L thumb and Yup I'm left-handed.

3 Little Buddies said...

What an adorable block! I usually fuse applique because I don't care for how my needle-turn turns out. I need more practice. 😀

Tara J.

AngieSue said...

If I HAVE to do applique, then I prefer needle-turn. But yuck, do I have to??

Vivian said...

So adorable. I love applique, I do the reverse side freezer paper.

Anonymous said...

This is a really cute block. The only applique I have done is "traditional" applique.

Judy1522 said...

So far my favorite is machine applique, but today I am doing a project with needle turn so that may become my new favorite.

Laura said...

I love your little, happy sheep!! Also fascinated by the flower dimensional appliqué-definitely on my "to try" list! Thanks for the ideas!

Lesley said...

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!

Unknown said...

Cute for a baby quilt.......

Unknown said...

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.

Suze said...

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.

Tina said...

Sew Cute!!

barbara woods said...

love your work, follower, thanks for the chance

VA said...

Such a wonderful quilt--I love it!

Jeanne in Ohio said...

Cute block!

Lyn said...

I love hand appliqué , generally the freezer paper method...I find it very relaxing.

Janet said...

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.

Mom C said...

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

kck83 said...

Well....I'm not really into applique work YET! do have it on my mind for learning soon!

Susan said...

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.

Susan Ulrich said...

I love the little sheep! As for applique, I enjoy the raw edge style!

Teresa in Music City said...

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!
