Quiltmaker's 100 Blocks Vol. 10 Blog Tour November 18 2014, 180 Comments

Welcome blog hoppers! It is that time of year again. The air is crisp, the trees are bare and there is a new issue of Quiltmaker's 100 Blocks! This is Vol. 10... which means 1000 original blocks! That is pretty crazy. We have been participating for a few volumes nows, check out our past blocks in Vol. 7, Vol. 8 and Vol. 9. Okay, now on to our new blocks!

My Mom's block, keeping with her old car theme, is an adorable woodie. She dug through her stash and scrap bin for this block! She used two different woodgrain prints and an orange tone-on-tone for the car body, assorted scraps for the wheels, bumpers and presents, a light blue swirl for the sky and a grey print for the ground. I love the presents on top of the car! And that detailed stitching =] Isn't it just the cutest thing!

My is kind of a modge-podge of scraps. I knew which fabrics I wanted to use and what general shape I wanted to achieve and just started sewing. If you know me, you know this is not normal behavior! I am planner. Once I had my block made, I started playing with some quilt layouts. I am currently sewing on a project that will appear in Quilts from Quiltmaker's 100 Blocks Spring '15 issue featuring this quilt and Doe, Carolyn Friedlander's new line!
