Quiltmaker's 100 Blocks Vol. #8 Blog Tour


 We are so excited and thankful to be included in Quiltmaker's 100 Block Vol. #8. We are block #706 page 24. You can even see us on the cover. Mary Andra is one of four sisters who own Sisters' Quilting Trunk. She does all the hand applique'. Mary Andra feels doing one block is the easiest part of designing a quilt.

 At times putting it into a quilt is not so easy. She did come up with a quilt design suggestion for this block. We hope you enjoy it.

Don't forget to go here to see all the designers who have a block in this issue and are participating in the blog hop. There are always wonderful blocks in every issue of Quiltmaker, so don't forget to check them out too. 

Please don't forget to show us what you did with your blocks. We would love to see them.

Quiltmaker is generously giving away one 100 Blocks Vol #8 magazine to every blog participating. We will also be giving one away and a surprise too.
All you have to do is post a message below to be included in both give-a-ways. We will have two lucky winners. Our drawing will take place on November 16th 2013. 

Wishing all who read this a wonderful day,
Mary Andra, Cheryl Ann, Candee and Andee
and the one who doesn't sew, Geri
