Quiltmaker's 100 Block Blog Tour part 2

Welcome to the Great American Quilt Factory/Possibilities Blog! We are so honored to have been selected to design a block for Quiltmaker's 100 Blocks from today's top designers, volume 2.


We are giving you a Sneak Peek at this incredible Collector's Edition. Each day this week, you have an opportunity to go to about 12 different designer's blogs to learn a little about what inspired them and/or get free patterns. The Blog Tour started Monday and continues through Friday, Nov 12th. Make sure that you visit all of the sites for prizes and free patterns, including ours!

We have designed a beautiful table runner that incorporates two of our Spring Flowers Blocks, #111 on page 27. The table runner is approx. 18 x 54". This is a free download for you to enjoy--click here.

Please leave a comment on our blog for a chance to win one of 3 prizes. We have two copies of Quiltmaker's 100 Blocks to give away, as well as a special prize--a variety of Possibilities books and patterns. Make sure you leave a way for us to contact you, should you win. Winners will be chosen at random.

Be sure to check out Quiltmaker's website for the schedule of daily bloggers and to enter to win the Grand Prize!

Best of luck to you and thank you again for visiting!

Happy stitching,

Lynda and Nancy



P.S. We are going to be listing our favorite notions on our blog in the next few days. You can suscribe by clicking on the RSS feed on the sidebar and we would love to know what notion is your favorite, too!

StitchinByTheLake said...

The free pattern looks like a fun one to do. My favorite notion - that's like choosing a favorite child...impossible! But a couple would be the no-waste ruler (which I have just recently discovered) for making flying geese blocks, blue pens which wash away for drawing on fabrics, and light weight fusible for applique. blessings, marlene

Mary said...

What a pretty block and I love the table runner. One of my favorite notions is a clip that fastens on my shirt. It has a loop that snaps onto a pair of scissors and a cord that springs back, so I can always have my scissors to clip threads handy while I sew. Otherwise, I'm always looking for my scissors!

Mystica said...

Love the design for the runner.

webmailaddress2 said...

Thanks for a great giveaway.

Shar said...

This is the year for scraps. It is my intent to use as much of my scraps as I can this year. What I don't use up, will be going to the guilds I belong to at the end of 2011. The Tablerunner will be a great beginning for my year of scraps!
I love that you are thinking Spring. I realize Christmas isn't even here, although it IS coming fast! I can plan on this table runner for the Spring!

Vicky said...

Thank you for sharing your table runner pattern.

free indeed said...

I've saved the pattern for future use...I'm thinking next year will be the year of dressing up the table and everyone gets runners for Christmas!
