Quiltmaker's 100 Blocks Volume 12 Blog Tour

Yippee!! This is my very first time in the Quiltmaker's 100 Blocks Blog Tour. The magazine hits newsstands today! I love 100 Block's magazine.  I think I have them all LOL.  Having 100 designs in each issue, there is definitely something for everyone.  Every technique you can think of and something for every level of quilter.


I have been quilting for about 4 years.  As my blog name states, I am a little crazy.  I have all kinds of crazy ideas "swimming" around in my head.  I received EQ7 as a gift from my husband and I was playing around with different shapes and all of a sudden one looked like a fish to me.  So, I got a crazy idea to have two fishies kissing.  Then I thought, Hey what about a crab looking up at the smooching couple.  So, here is is my block design.  You can find it on page 31, block #1148.

 Thank You Quiltmaker for allowing me to share with everyone.  Here it is again using different fabrics.

 You know I said before that I was crazy right?  Well, check this out.  I was trying to think of a quilt I could design from this fish block. I thought this block represents a big ocean with lots of sea creatures. Why not zoom out from the fish and see who else is watching the scene.
Here is the design in EQ7.

  Ha ha! It looks like we have a seahorse, jelly fish, clam, starfish, and lastly a bird dipping his head in for a view.
Here is the finished quilt!  The quilt is on page 78.



 The quilt was pieced by me and quilted by QuiltLizzy.  Thank You for hopping by and if you would like, you can follow me.  I need someone to talk to ha ha.

Now for a Giveaway!

Quiltmaker is the sponsor and they are giving away a free copy of this magazine. Shipping anywhere! In order for a chance to win just leave a comment below.  I will randomly select a winner at the end of the hop.

  100. So cute! BTW, if that is your studio, you can't be too crazy. Mine looks like it was ransacked by some deranged quilter on the hunt for a certain fabric or pattern (that would be me......😊).
