Quiltmaker 100 Blocks Magazine



I am so excited to be part of the 100 Blocks Magazine Volume 7!
My block is number 690 Peaceful Pagoda.


I have had so much fun making this block!  If you choose to make one, I would love to see it!
Here is a wall hanging I am making using this block and another block I designed...
My son and I had great fun photographing it at the Japanese Gardens section of our local botanical garden.  It was a good excuse to get out this morning and look at all the lovely flowers and plants.  

This block is really pretty simple.  Don't be afraid of the 1/8th and 7/8th measurements, they are just another line on the ruler.  Be sure to sew through the points where the seams meet and it comes out beautifully!

I have one free copy of Quiltmaker's 100 Blocks Volume 7 to giveaway! Just leave me a comment below for a chance to win.  If you are a follower or become a follower of my blog, let me know that too for a second chance to win. 

For more great designs from 100 Blocks, check out the Quiltmaker blog! 

Happy quilt making!
