Quiltmaker 100 Block Blog Tour

Welcome!

It is so nice to once again be included in the magazine and the blog tour!  I love to hear from everyone and hope that you will comment for a chance to win a copy of the magazine plus much more!



The block that is included in the Quiltmaker 100 Block Volume 5 is called Diamond Eyes.  It may not be a surprise to some of you that one of my favorite elements in a block and quilts as well, is the diamond shape.  I think it adds beauty to the quilts and some different elements.  Here is my block:



Since my husband has been ill and I have been working on getting ready for Market, I decided to do some give-aways instead of a project.  I hope that you understand and although I don't have alot of time, I can do some great give-aways.  If you make a comment, you will be entered to win one of the following:

First, the magazine is giving away a copy of the Quiltmaker 100 Blocks Volume 5.

Second, my newest rulers will be debuting at Market.  It is a "mini" Fit to be Quarter and is called Fit to be Quarter 2.5.  It works just like the Fit to be Quarter but it's only 2 1/2".  SO cute!  I am giving away 8 of these!  It is so new, it's not even on my website yet!



Third, there have been quite a few people blogging about 2 of my rulers: Fit to be Geese and Mini Fit to be Geese.  Thanks Kathie and Thelma!  The Fit to be Geese ruler can be used for my block so I decided to give away 3 of these.  Also, I am giving away 2 Mini Fit to be Geese rulers. 





So, in all you have 14 chances to win something...better odds than the lotto!  All you have to do is make a comment on the following:

Since it is spring, what is your favorite flower?  Anyone who knows me, knows mine are tulips.  I have been receiving a lot of tulips from friends and family lately to help make me smile and they certainly have!  Thank you!

Good luck in the drawing and I close the drawing on Saturday night and will announce the winner Monday morning.  Please make sure that if you do not want to leave your email address, that you watch Monday morning to see if you have won. 

Thank you everyone who has wished the best for my husband and I.  He is doing better but it will be a long recovery.  I just thank God that he is still with me.

I adore old fashioned yellow tea roses. I am also fond of yellow daffodils and yellow tulips. Yellow, though oddly not my favorite color, says welcome to spring to me. Happy quilting.

I love them all - flowers that is! I guess I'd have to say purple cone flowers? They don't need any care and they just keep blooming and waving in the breeze!

Hope your husband is stronger each day - and remember to take care of yourself, too!!

I can understand what you are going through myself. My husband has had throat cancer, survived; colon cancer, survived and now will have surgery in June for removal of his bladder. He almost died when he had the first bladder surgery. Now, he has to go to Standford to have the bladder removed. It has been a rough road but we will survive and just makes your marriage even more special. So, giveways are awesome. It is all we enjoy almost as well as fabric. Speaking of flowers, I also love tulips. I really like the vast assortment of colors. You are a very generous lady to give away so much. So, I just want to thank you for your participation and giving us all a chance to win.

I looked forward to Keukenhof each year and all the variety of tulips and COLOR! Thanks for the chance...I've been seeing many post about your rulers too!

My favorites are apple blossoms and lilacs (which is our state flower here in NH). I'll keep your husband and you in my prayers.

Pat S. said...

My favorite flowers are lilacs...always a beautiful sign of Spring! Thanks "sew much" for this chance to win!!!

carol l said...

My favorite flower is the Iris, mainly becuse it is all that can survive in our hot/dry conditions and that the deer don't eat them.
Glad to hear that your husband is getting better, last fall I was caretaker for my better half because of two surgeries.
Carol L

Jan said...

Nice block - love that blue fabric :)
Daffodils, even though I don't particularly like yellow, are my favorite flower. It must be because we see them so early after the end of winter.

Stephanie said...

Peonies, definitely. Unfortunately, I've never had any luck growing them. But lilacs are my next favorite and I do have those! Congratulations on a terrific block.

Jeanne Gwin said...

My favorite spring flower is my Lilacs. We have bordered the front of our property with Lilac Bushes. They smelled so good this year when they bloomed. Thanks for sharing your wonderful block and congratulations on getting in the magazine. And thanks for the opportunity to win a copy.

Nancy Angerer said...

It is hard to choose just one! But I do love love colors in the pink, red, purple range. And I love roses!

Marcia said...

Marcia

Sandra said...

I would say my absolute favorite would be Cally Lilies with Freesias being a close second.

Grats on getting published and thank you for the lovely drawings.

Carol Sc said...

My favorite spring flower is the daffodil --- mainly because the critters leave the bulbs alone and they actually have a chance to bloom. Thanks for the opportunity to win one of your prizes.

Aggiequilter said...

Congrats on your block! My fav spring flowers are Daffodils, but its hard to grow them here in south Texas.
Glad your DH is doing better, take care!

Wow! So many prizes. Thank you for the lovely giveaway. I used one of your blocks in a quilt that I completed this year. My favorite flower is the Iris - purple and blues. My thoughts are with you for your husband's steady recovery.

DebrafromMD said...

My favorite Spring flowers are daffodils. I have all of your rulers, and I use them constantly. It looks like I will be needing the new one once it is available.

Jennifer said...

My favorite flower is the Yellow Rose of Texas. I received a bouquet of those when I first told my husband I was pregnant with our first child. We were not in Texas at the time and I was so homesick for Texas that it totally made my day. I get them for anniversaries, too. Thanks for the great give-aways on your blog and best wishes to your husband for continued recovery.

Joanna said...

If I have to choose just one flower, today it is columbine. I looked out in the backyard and they are in full bloom, even in the rain. Ruffly and hardy, but so pretty. Thank you for all of the chances to win. The rulers sound like a good thing.

Julia said...

Lilacs, since they remind me of home. Thanks for the super giveaway!

Carla G said...

teachpany said...

Prayers for you and your husband's recovery. Tulips are happy. My favorite is lilacs, though. The smell is just heavenly, and there are so many on each bush, and the shades of colors. I have three bushes. One is traditional, one is orchid pink and the other is blue. I'm waiting for them to bloom.

PBee said...

Praying for your husband's recovery and your peace of mind. Thanks for sharing your block. It's so nice!

I like Gerber Daisies.

Phyldar said...

Pansies have always been my favorite flower - my grandmother always had a huge bed of them when I was growing up (all colors) and I loved to set by it and just soak up the beauty! Great block!

Newbie Jen said...

Those rulers look fantastic! My favorite spring flower is the daffodil. I grew up in Florida and it was too hot and humid there for them, but I sometimes got to visit my grandparents in Connecticut in the springtime and daffodils were everywhere. They seemed to poke their cheery heads up and greet spring with a smile.

Hope your husband recovers quickly!

Shishypat said...

All of your giveaways look great. My favorite flower is the Tiger Lily. I can't believe how tall they grow...Definitely reminds me of being outdoors in the garden

Chris said...

I have the original fit to be geese ruler and love it

This Spring we had muscari and narcissi - couldn't decide which so planted both - great result!

Amy Eileen Koester said...

I love so many flowers: lavender, iris, pansies. But my absolute favorites are violets. Any kind of violets, but especially the tiny ones that bloom with the crocus.

VickiT said...

You've created another beautiful block Monique. Your new ruler looks awesome. I was fortunate enough to win your Fit to be Geese rulers but havne't had a chance to touch them more than to read the instructions. My husband's father became sick and we had to go to MI. I'm sorry about your husband. I hope he's still doing well.

My favorite Spring flower are my lilacs but because of the smell. Sadly those don't last too long so the one flower I really look forward to seeing are the Blue Iris. I just love those because they do last a little longer.

Julie in WA said...

I am seeing more traditional-type blocks on this hop than in the past. I think yours is wonderful! One of my favorite flowers is the tulip as well! That is because of my Dutch heritage. I have a bunch of them planted in the front garden, and each spring a lot of them pop out of the ground. Alas, they are all leaves and only one ever blooms. Sigh...

Judy W said...

What a nice prize opportunity! My favorite spring flower is not really a flower per se -- it's the dogwood tree in blossom. We have a few and I love them.
Judy W

Pretty block! My favorite spring flower is the crocus because it is the first to bloom and once it does I know spring is here.

They are the first to bloom at my house so I know that Spring is definitely on the way. Thank you so much for your generous giveaway.

I like tulips a lot, but my favorites are daffodils. I love their sunniness.

Marge in Louisiana said...

I know the feeling of being grateful our DH are still with us. My favorite spring flower is the Lily of the Valley which we cannot grow here in the south. Makes me think of my grandmothers who both had them in their gardens in Illinois when I was young.

Lillies have been my long time fave. I have all kinds, White Easter with their amazing fragrance, tall Asian, Day Lillies and more. I don't need a magazine, but I'd love to be put in the hat for one of your rulers.

Ginny Worden said...

Love your rulers, and my favorite spring flower is a tulip, probably be ause it reminds me of my mother.

Thank you for the wonderful giveaways, and congratulations on your block being in the book!

My long-time favorite flower is roses; however, I recently have developed a love affair with peonies. Must be the similarity that attracts me.

I hope your husband is recovering soon.

Snowdrops! They're so brave and optimistic. When they start to bloom, I can convince myself that it's spring, no matter what the temperature.

The Quilting Queen said...

I don't know if I can pick just one! I love flowers in general. If I have to choose just one, it would be daffodils as they are usually the first flower of spring and a promise of warm sun shiny days ahead.

Donna Joy said...

I love spring, so that includes all flowers, daffodils are one of my favorites.
Thanks for Sharing your rulers, would love to win one so i could make one of your quilts

Juanita said...

Weedy said...

A favorite flower? My lilacs will be blooming soon and the flowers are high enough the deer can't eat them. We won't talk about what they do to tulips. Win or not, I wish your husband a speedy recovery.

Donna said...

I love your block and would love to be a winner of one of your prizes. My best wishes for your husband's recovery. The rhododendrons are in bloom here now, so I guess they would be my current favorite flower.

Janet said...

Today I love Gerbera daisies. Thanks for a chance to win the magazine and I love your block.
