Quiltmaker's 100 Blocks Blog Tour...it's TODAY!

Welcome! Welcome!  What fun it is to be part of the blog hop for Quiltmaker's 100 Blocks Blog Tour.  We've had a pretty exciting week, with lot of giveaways, and beautiful blocks.  I have loved getting to know some of these designers better.

Today I get to introduce my little block. Broncos Star.


I love to make quilt blocks that can be totally different depending on color choices, and changing the value placement.   So, let's see what this block would look like another way.  Here's orange and blue with different placement.



Or maybe put together a quilt of all different things?  I love all the possibilities.  So, do you like the modern colors, or do you long for something different?


maybe something like this


I can see some really cute appliqué to go with this as well.  We all have different styles when it comes to quilting, and that's why I like quilt blocks that anyone use for their own style.

But for the fun stuff....
the giveaway

Today, I'm giving away a magazine.  

And some more little goodies.....

  28. An awesome Prime Rib-Eye steak....with my homemade steak sauce that uses 4 #'s of veggies and 8 cups of stock---that boil down to only 1 cup of steak sauce at the end - it is memorable. In fact-time to make some TODAY! OK-you got me drooling.

Yummies!
