Welcome to our stop on Quiltmaker's 100 Blocks Blog Tour! Every year Quiltmaker publishes an amazing issue containing 100 unique 12" blocks. This newest issue, Volume 8, has a block by my mom and I. And... we are both on the cover! Look out world, we are cover girls =]
Rollin' Along by Kristy Wolf
My Mom's block is an adorable retro camper inspired by our family friend's camper. She used some bright orange and coral fabrics for the camper, a gradient fabric for the sky and a textured green for the grass. I love the white tone-on-tone circles and oval layered to create the clouds. She has added lots of little details like the keyhole, scalloped shades and little bird on the flag.

Formation by Shayla Wolf
My block is a bright foundation pieced block that was inspired by a formation of planes during a flyover. They resemble flying geese, but are stretched vertically a wee bit. I chose a bright orange background and five fabrics variegating from coral to purple. Paper-piecing makes all the little points turn out perfectly, which I am fond of!

I had a fun time mocking up different color options for this block. Above are some of favorites including the original color way. I have a quilt design based on this block that will be in a future issue of Quilts from Quiltmaker's 100 Blocks! It is going to fun! My Mom has a couple other vintage automobile blocks in mind for future issues and they are super cute!
