  1. I'd love to win this book! So far my quilt "blocks" have been basic shapes of trapezoids and squares. If I win this, it will give me a reason to branch out and try "real" quilt blocks. :)

  2. Oh I would "LOVE" to win this beautiful book :)

    I have been quilting for a while and sewing forever but my quilting has been (recently) mainly using up leftover fabric in squares for family members quilts :)

    Although I did make this one a few years ago when my Son went off to college, it was a fun project :)

    Have a lovely weekend, cheers, T. :)

  3. Hello! This is Yiya Cucuy from

    One of the blocks in this book is "Storm at Sea;" I found this in the "look inside" at a major online seller that shows some of the pages in the book. This is one pattern I am really interested in learning, because it is made up of units with straight lines, but when it is all pieced together, there is this funky optical illusion that makes the seams look curvy - how cool is that!

    And just to make it more interesting, the book has pictures with beautiful fabrics - great inspiration to experiment with color play!

  4. I would love to get this book and make a few tutorials out of it. I just recently got into quilt making and I love it! I have a few FQ bundles that would be so much fun to make blocks from this book with. My blog is I think) and while I don't blog very often, I do love posting finished objects on there. You can see the quilt top I made using Melissa's recent QAL on there. That was a fabulous experience and I would love to add to the blogger world of quilting.

  5. Who won the book??? Can't wait to see their tutorial!

    1. T@PoppyPlacePdx is the winner of the Quilt Block Book. She will be sharing her tutorial next month.

      I am looking forward to seeing it too.
