Quiltmaker's 100 Blocks Vol. 9

                                         www.quiltmaker.com/blogs/quiltypleasures
Two sisters from Sisters' Quilting Trunk are featured in this issue. We are so excited for them to have been included with other wonderful quilters.
 This button should read 'our" block is in.....
 Twin sister, Candee, designed Twin Baskets for her block. I am sure you can guess why.
 Twin sister, Andee, designed the quilt to go with the block. Andee added four blocks together and rotated them. We love their design and hope you will too.
We will have three give-a-ways this time. One will be a copy of Quiltmaker's 100 Blocks Vol 9 and twin fabric and notion give-a-ways. The fabrics are the same but the notions are different. To make everything in two's Quiltmaker Magazine will also give a copy of their magazine to one of our lucky winners.  We hope you enjoy not only their block and quilt but our gifts too. No questions to answer just reply to the posting. Winners will be chosen by random number count on May 2nd, 2014.  If you have not do so, please visit all the blogs hoppers participating. You may find them at     www.quiltmaker.com/blogs/quiltypleasures . Wishing all who read this a wonderful week.
