Quiltmaker's 100 Blocks Blog Hop

Sunday, April 30, 2017

Hello! Welcome to the Quiltmaker's 100 Blocks Volume 15 Blog Hop!


I am a cover girl for Quiltmaker's 100 Blocks volume 15!

You may remember that the last 100 Blocks issue (see my block from volume 14 here) was my very first print magazine appearance! Well, this time around is my second magazine appearance - and my block is on the cover!!!

I am a cover girl for Quiltmaker's 100 Blocks volume 15!

I am SO excited to be a cover girl!! If you live near me (southwest Missouri), be on the look out for me in stores starting tomorrow when the issue goes on newsstands! I'll be the one telling every customer in the store that my block is on the cover, and I'll be taking selfies with the magazine too!! (Follow me on Facebook and Instagram for all of that fun!)

On the cover, my block appears right above Bonnie Hunter's! That has to mean something. I think I'll just start calling Bonnie my BFF and see how long it takes for her to notice! Ha!

My block is on page 52. It is named "Split Mountain" and is block #1484. I made the sample block with solid fabrics in ombre purples and a contrasting aqua.

Thanks to the miracle of technology (specifically EQ7), I have played with MANY other color combinations and block layouts and come up with some fabulous quilt ideas! I am always surprised with how different a quilt looks by just changing the colors!

To enter the giveaways, leave a comment on this post telling me about the weather where you live! Giveaways are now closed.

I'll go first! We had 15" of rain on Friday and Saturday, in addition to the 6" we got in the 14 days before that! There was severe flooding in our area that washed away many roads and even entire bridges! On Sunday, every road into and out of our county was closed due to flooding and/or damage. We live up on a hill, so we are dry and stocked up on food. However, many of our friends and neighbors have not fared so well. Sunday afternoon the sun came out and the water started to recede, so hopefully there will not be any more rain this week!

  2. What a fun block, lots of possibilities. Heard about the terrible weather in the US on the radio this morning. Here we have rain, but it supposed to brighten later :)

  3. This past week spring seems to have finally arrived. But...severe storms then cooler weather are coming. I hope you're weather is finally starting to settle!

  4. Great block. It sure has a lot of movement. My stomach was moving with some of them. I have a roaring migraine today and you can imagine what those lines and colors did to my head!!!! I didn't see the geese possibility until all of sudden- wham - there is was. Versatility, deluxe. I live in a suburb of Tulsa and we have had rain, rain, rain and more rain and flood warnings. I've been safe and I pray for your safety, Laura. You are officially a cover girl. WOW! If I see Bonnie ever again (which I doubt), I'll tell her I know her BFF. Hoping to be a winner - however, it always works out that the right person wins the giveaway.

  5. The weather here in South Jersey has been crazy. On Sat it was 85 degrees and yesterday dropped into the low 50's. Sun one day, pouring rain the next. Thanks for the ideas about using ombres. I have several in my stash and never really knew what to do with them. funnylady93@comcast.net

  6. At the moment it is very rainy and quite cool! Yesterday it was just the opposite. Warm and sunny. Still some april wheather her in Switzerland, lol!

  7. Love the blue version! I won't complain about all our rainy days anymore after seeing the flooding you are experiencing! We've had weeks of rain, but not like you!! Hope it dries out soon!

    ReplyDelete
  8. Congrats on being a cover girl! What an honor! Nice block, love all the different designs you came up with!

    I am across the state from you in St. Louis. We got a lot of the same rain you did this weekend, but not quite as much. I think the total from Friday through yesterday was just over 7". So glad it has finally cleared off, but we are supposed to get more rain later this week.

  10. I love your block, it has so many possibilities. I live in Key Largo, Florida where we have blue skies and lots of sun but summer has arrived, the temps are high 80's.

    ReplyDelete
  11. That blue version is my favorite! We have a winter storm warning today, and my son is mad that school's not closed. He just had a day off last week when we had an ice storm.

  12. Fantastic block, Laura! In South Carolina we are enjoying a nice spring. Sorry to hear about all the rain in your area, scarey!

    ReplyDelete
  13. The flooding is over and guess what's coming? Thundershowers! Fingers crossed

    ReplyDelete
  14. Your block and all the setting options are amazing!
    I live in central Missouri and have had about half the amount of rain that you have which is still way too much! And it is raining again this morning. Hope you are able to get roads and such back to normal quickly.

  15. I'm glad you are safe. The weather here has been all over the place -- one day in the 80's, the next in the low 60's.

  16. It has been hot hot hot here in eastern NC!! Maybe a rain shower tonight.

  17. The weather here in MI has been crazy this year also. One day it will be beautiful and high 70's maybe even 80, the next we'll have frost in the AM or high 30's and rain. Today is another rainy day.

    ReplyDelete
  18. I really love your block---so many possibilities! Thank you for sharing and for the giveaway Today it is raining. We have had LOTS of rain in the last several weeks, but nothing like what you are getting. I am not complaining though because we really need it.

    ReplyDelete
  19. The weather here has been cold and wet. The weatherman said we could see snow flakes this morning.Your block is great with lots of ways to make it. Thanks for the chance to win.

    ReplyDelete
  20. We have had a lot of rain as well as windy days. Right now the sun is out and it is so wonderful to see and feel that sun on your face and body. You just seem to be in a better mood and don't feel so confined. Thank you for sharing your layouts with us. This is where inspiration comes into the picture. It is what helps us to design and create. Gets you into the quilting mood. Thank you for being a part of QM's 100 blocks and giving me this opportunity to try and win - Magazine, fabric. OMG .

  21. We've had a lot more rain than usual here this year but nowhere near what your area experienced.

    ReplyDelete
  22. I'm so sorry for your terrible weather! We are in northern Oregon, and we're experiencing "sun breaks" at last--brief periods where the sun comes out and we all rush outdoors and do anything we can think of that can be done outside, because we're so thrilled to be in the sunshine. I'm told we're expecting actual warm days later this week, but I'll believe it when I see it.

    ReplyDelete
  23. Oh my goodness! That is such rough roading around you! I hope it clears up and gets fixed quickly! I live on the central coast and we have had the first rainy winter in years. It has helped replenish our drought ridden area. Today is however gorgeous and sunny with a cloud bank over the ocean on the horizon. It has been a bit cold and windy but is supposed to be warmer today. It's mostly mild weather here year round and we love it! Thank you for the wonderful giveaway and the fun new block to try. I'll say hey! to Bonnie for you :-)

  24. Wow! rains and flash floods are no Bueno! I am in Texas ( grew up in Missouri, though ) and we have had TORNADOS! in fact this weekend I was on a bus shop hop and just barely missed being caught in one. I wondered if there were quilt shops in Oz..
    Love your block,, it is on my to-do list ( and playing with EQ for settings ),, just love it. Thanks

  27. Fabulous block, I need to make this, probably more than one quilt.

  29. Wow--your block is super fun! That flooding is scary---I woke up to snow this morning in MN--no May flowers here!

    ReplyDelete
  30. I live in Alberta, Canada and in the month of April we have had rain, snow and a few days with sleet. By Wednesday the temperature is to go up to 18C but we will probably see snow again in May.

    ReplyDelete
  31. Congratulations on your block. I love all the different versions of the quilts you showed us. We have had SUNSHINE!!! After a long and wet winter (including 2 floods) it is great to have the sun shine and be able to be outdoors. In fact, I did some ice dyeing (definitely an outdoor activity as it is messy).

    ReplyDelete
  32. I love the versatility of your block. Great for the boys and men in my life. Our temperatures have been like a yo-yo. 80s one day, 60s the next.

    ReplyDelete
  33. Congratulations! This is a gorgeous block. Our weather has been non-spring like. We have a day of hot sunshine followed by 3-5 cold, damp and dreary days. Forsythia is blooming as is everything else, but not much pleasure in the weather here. I feel for you with the rain and road washouts.

    ReplyDelete
  34. Love your block. Sorry about your terrible weather. This week has been variable with rain, wind and sun. Feels like spring creeps in, then retreats.

    ReplyDelete
  35. We've been having a lot of rain the last couple of days with flood warnings.

    ReplyDelete
  36. We have had rain,rain, and more rain. But, no terrible weather to go with it. Sorry to hear about all of the bad weather you have had. Your block is fantastic! Love how different it looks in each setting.

    ReplyDelete
  37. We are expecting it to be 100 degrees by Friday here in Bakersfield....sigh

    ReplyDelete
  38. In the last two weeks, we have had high winds, 99 degree to 72 degree and back weather, and am expecting rain by the end of the week. Humidity 8 %. Idiot kids (young adults) shooting flares from their cars into dry brush and starting drive-by fires. Just another day in paradise!

  39. It isn't spring here in the Netherlands. Cold and rain . We are looking forward to sunshine

    ReplyDelete
  40. Fist off, I love your block! So modern with clean lines. As for weather, I live in NE Oklahoma so we've been getting the same storms as you, probably. The rivers are full, so I hope it slows down soon. cknapp3626(at)sbcglobal(dot)net

  41. Great block!
    Perhaps you could send some rain our way(UK) we only had 4mm in April!

    ReplyDelete
  42. We have just had rain here in central Kansas... but on the noon news in Western Kansas 20+ inches of snow!!! crazy spring.. I think the seasons have moved!!!
    drhodes9@cox.net.

    Your block in interesting.. I can see some great options.. thanks..

  43. Southwest Idaho is experiencing some severe flooding too. Our snowfall this winter was one of the deepest in 100 years. The mountain runoff is in full swing, coupled with a lot of rain. Bonnie Hunter follower here too! Your block really presents a lot of variations - love the layout possibilities you gave. Thanks!

    ReplyDelete
  44. We've been getting alot of rain too. The dogs and cats are tired of it, that's for sure. And since gardens just got put in, alot of them are under water.

    ReplyDelete
  45. congratulations. your block is wonderful. it has been raining her for the last week. and next week is supposed to be the same. sigh. it is spring. woohoo

    ReplyDelete
  46. We had a gorgeous weekend but started off our Monday with lots of rain. It seems to be gone now, hooray.

    ReplyDelete
  47. We've had a few showers today in the UK but the sun has been out and the wind has dried the washing. Much better than last week when it snowed and hailed.

  48. I live 25 miles east of Los Angeles, the weather is about 84 today heading into 90 this weekend. Yep...Summer will soon be sizzling away!

    ReplyDelete
  49. Weather is always a conversation subject here in the High Plains of Colorado farm country. Our neighbors 15 miles away were part of the crazy fires March 6 and now less than 100 miles south of us snow from a few inches to over a foot in places and it lays on top of growing winter wheat. We are so thankful to brag on our one inch rain, and that's abundant for us. Love your patterns and your new BBF on the cover. In Stitches, Kathy in Colo repzjratplainsdotnet

  50. I LOVE your block! Being a cover girl is pretty cool, congratulations! Great job on your post, too.

  51. Luckily we're getting some cooler weather, which I'm EXCITED about, because very soon we'll be passing from spring to summer, and our HIGH temps. Can't stand summer!

    ReplyDelete
  52. Love your block, see so many possibilities!! Thanks for sharing!! Our weather has been different here in Michigan with what seemed like lots of rain. My gardens are starting to come to life and I'm ready for the green to emerge!!

    ReplyDelete
  53. Wow, have you had the rain! Hope everyone near you is surviving it. Last Friday we had a day where it was foggy at 7 am, clear blue sky by 11:00, raining by about 2:00, and snowing by 7:00. Crazy spring weather! I love your block! Thanks for the giveaway!

    ReplyDelete
  54. Love the possibiities of the block. Here in WY we've had highs varying from almost 60 to below 30, several inches of rain (unusual), wind, snow, and hail and a night of "Thundersnow"...

    ReplyDelete
  55. So sorry about all the terrible weather and destruction you've had where you live. Here in Maine we think Mud Season is over and, although the mountains are getting snow this week, we will be having a lot of rain along the coast and temps in the 50's. So maybe the daffodils will survive! Love your design!

    ReplyDelete
  56. we've had a fair bit of rain and the temperature has been up and down. It's been a bit colder than normal but it will heat up for a couple of days and then get cold again . It's a bit crazy making. I love your block and the different layouts.

    ReplyDelete
  57. I like the Blue Ombre quit made of this block too! We had a bad line of thunderstorms and rain that passed very quickly through our area (south Mississippi) over the weekend-luckily we escaped the really bad stuff! After, it gave us much needed cooler temps, very welcome here! Thank you, Susan

    ReplyDelete
  58. Love the optical illusions and movement of the design created by your block. It was a Sunny day here, but I work inside all day so missed it. Thanks for sharing.

    ReplyDelete
  59. We had a weekend of rain (central KS) but further west of us had over a foot of snow.

    ReplyDelete
  60. I can't imagine having that much rain! Our weather has been warm and rainy on and off, but no flooding.

    ReplyDelete
  61. I saw on the news about all the rain and flooding in MO, I hope things are drying out now. we've had some rain, but really warm temps (70's!) over the weekend. Friday evening was gorgeous, but then Sunday was in the 40s.
    It's cool how different layouts of your block look completely different!

    ReplyDelete
  62. OMG, I was complaining today because we are getting our first 90+ degree day this week. Guess I should be happy it is sunny and hot and not raining more. Take care,

    ReplyDelete
  63. Congratulations on making the cover with your Split Mountain block! So sorry to hear about the flooding in your area. The weather here is mild and sunny. Thanks for the great giveaway.

  64. We had very nice weather on Friday, but since then it has been pretty gloomy and rainy!

    ReplyDelete
  65. Cold and rainy here in Wisconsin; we even had snow last week. Hoping the sun finds its way north soon!! Your block has a ton of possible layouts which makes it much more interesting.

    ReplyDelete
  66. It's spring for one day here. Now it's summer temps (so not my liking). We love in Maryland between DC and Baltimore. Unfortunately it is going to be a summer for ticks :) Nice comment huh? Looking forward to several days of normal spring temps before they rise again. Congrats on a great block, and being a cover girl :)

  67. I'll see if we can send you some sunshine from Arizona as it is going to hit 102 this week. Good work getting your block on the cover page. rozz01 at cox dot net

  68. Congratulations on being a cover girl! Your block is very unique and so are the quilt layouts. Weather here in Florida has been warm but sunny. I'm really enjoying the weather.

  69. Our weather has been crazy. One day it's 80, the next it's 60, rain on and off. Hopefully we'll have some nice Spring weather soon!

  70. Congratulations!!... How exciting, to be on the cover!
    (But, not surprising, though!... That's one amazing block!!)
    We have had a lot of rain here in Michigan, too... But NO where near the amounts, and the flooding you have had!!
    Weather here has been quite variable too, with warm sun alternating with cold and rain and thunderstorms...

  71. We've been RVing in AZ for 10 days. First couple of days, the temp hit 98°, then windy. We're farther north now and it is gorgeous--sunny and cool.

    ReplyDelete
  72. Love your block, Laura! Right there on the cover! Yay!

    Here in Minnesota we had snow one day last week. Otherwise we've had 4" of rain in the past two weeks. A bit soggy, but nothing like you've had.

    ReplyDelete
  73. First of all, I love how versatile the pattern is. So many choices. As for the weather, well lets just say that it can be winter one day, summer the next, tornado's the next. Recently the weather has changed so often you can't tell what season it is.

    ReplyDelete
  74. Love your block, and all the great settings you show. The blue ombre is definitely my favorite, too. Our Spring has been very wet, with a lot of flooding, too. Quite a bit of our back yard is still under water.

    ReplyDelete
  75. Right now I am in Seattle and it's been raining here everyday since this past October they say. I am from North Dakota and they had snow last week and when I get home on the 4th of May, suppose to be in the 70's. survivor972002@midco.net

  76. The weather has been variable here in the Chicago suburbs--sunny, windy, torrentially rainy, sprinkles, clouds, and cold. Typical midwestern spring.

    ReplyDelete
  77. Purple and aqua are my favorite colors, individually and together in quilts! Thank you for showing color and design options. April spring weather is crazy here in Utah, USA. We've gone from freezing, to rain, snow, sleet, hail, to nearly 80 degrees. Sometimes in the same 24-hour period. We're a high mountain desert, so we can have huge temp swings from day to night.

  81. I am located near the Hill Country of Texas (San Antonio area) and the weather here is cool at nights (50s F) and HOt during the days (high 80s and low 90s F). We get the occassion Thunderstorm; but, it's mostly dry and sunny these days causing me to have to water my garden frequently.

  82. We have had a lot of rainy dreary days but not a lot of rain like you. I just want to see sunshine and warm days. Your block is very cool!

  83. I live in Pennsylvania. It is not near as bad as your area, although we did get storms yesterday. 50's and 60's this week. Thank you, peterstankovich@comcast.net

  84. I live in east TN and the weather is amazing. Skies are crystal blue and it is warm outside. Please be safe in all that water. Water is so dangerous and so many people dont realize HOW dangerous until they see roads gone. Praying for you and your neighbors.

  91. Love the block and the different ways to lay it out! We had "SNOW" this past weekend here in NW Kansas. I spent the weekend quilting until we lost power, took a nap then back to quilting when the power came back on 3 hours later!

    ReplyDelete
  92. It is COLD that is all anyone needs to know! We had a very brief warm spell (60s) that did not last long enough. I am so ready to walk the dog without hat, gloves and winter coat.

    ReplyDelete
  93. Spring here has been cold with rain and then hot days. We have had changes in temperature sometimes 10 degrees from one day to the next.

    ReplyDelete
  94. Howdy from sunny,warm South Texas! Not too terribly hot yet, nice cool evenings, great for Fiesta time.
    I like how versatile your block is!

  95. Congrats on being a cover girl, your block is awesome! I am in upstate South Carolina and while we have not had to deal with flooding, we had a huge hail storm a few weeks ago and I now have many holes in my siding and roof.

    ReplyDelete
  96. Wow! We have had some rain the last few days but nothing like you have had. My basement seems to have a continual stream going through it.Looks like you may need a boat to travel down your road. Love your block and the variations you have shown. Thanks!

    ReplyDelete
  97. Your flooding pictures are pretty impressive! We have nothing like you. I'm in central Ohio and it's chilly here (low 40s). We've had rain for 2 days, but nothing like yours.

    ReplyDelete
  98. Today is hot 85* here in Ga. We had rain yesterday but the plants say water please.Two weeks ago we got 4" of rain in a few hours. We had a flood in the backyard but you would not know it now. We need water but not in a flood, so I know and understand flooding. When I see your quilt I think about the quilt I made using music fabric. It was fun but keeping true even strip was hard.

    ReplyDelete
  99. It has been a very rainy week here in NW Indiana....and more to come this week and weekend. I'm expecting LOTS of May flowers coming up!!
    I love your quilt block!

  100. That is a lot of rain! We have had a little rain and a smattering of snow here in MIchigan - it was 45 degrees out today and chilly. Great block!

  101. I am in Albury, Australia. It is Autumn here, we have been having lovely sunny days but quite cool, at the moment it is 15.4 C (59F) and our nights have been getting down to 3c (37F)

    ReplyDelete
  102. I live in Riverside, California and the weather has been in the 80's and 90's. But that is the perfect excuse to stay inside and quilt. Great block. I love blocks that can be arranged into different designs. I love the blue ombre version.

  103. The weather in the Pacific Northwest has been rainy and dreary most of the time from October till now. The sun has been out but not very often. I live by Puget Sound and have watched the rain squalls for months.

  106. That's a neat block. I love how you've shown the different quilt layouts using it. As for the weather, it's been a mixed bag here in the Pacific Northwest. We've been in the mid-40s to mid-60s with rain, sun, hail, and whatever else gets thrown our way. It changes by the minute.

  109. I love your block and how the pinwheels kind of look like they are underneath the lines. We have had a lot of rain here also. 2 days ago the storm was so severe there are still people without power. Stay safe!

  111. It was rainy and chilly this morning. Typical Pacific Northwest weather. But, this afternoon the clouds disappeared and the sun came out. By early evening the temperature was in the low 70s!

  113. Oh my goodness, take care of yourself and yours. We are having rain too. Took me several hours after my walk to get warm again. We still have a fire in our wood stove to keep the house warm. I love your block...it reminded me of going up the stairs in my parent's house so many years ago...they had a railing and so I loved your block for the memories. Thank you so much.

  114. We are moving into winter in Australia but the weather here has been lovely. It is mild, not hot or cold with a little rain at times. At the moment it is a lovely still afternoon. I am enjoying it while it lasts. It can rain a lot here too for weeks although not so much that roads wash away! Love your block and the quilt options.

  115. We are having lovely weather in Wisconsin and hopefully it will be warmer soon. I think it is frightening to see how quickly a rainstorm or tornado or other weather phenomenon can change our lives.

  116. Goodness! What nasty weather you have been having! We are cruising into summer here--64 on Monday, 71 on Tuesday, 83 yesterday and 91 today! No rain--high desert here.

  117. Glad to hear you're safe and dry. The damage around you looks so extensive. Never really thought about floods and pipelines until I saw one of your photos. Hope the cleanup goes well. By the way, love your modern block. What a great idea to use Ombre.

  118. Yikes... when I first read the prompt I was going to say chilly and raining, but I think I should change that to drizzling. Nothing like the rain you've had... stay safe! Amazing block!!

  119. We are experiencing beautiful weather in northeast Victoria, Australia. Lovely 19 degrees centigrade (66 degrees Fahrenheit) during the day and cool nights. I love your split mountain pattern. I felt like I was viewing the mountain through a window. Cheers Lenore

  132. Lots of rain here, but that's much better than our winters! We live in the area known as 'the snowbelt' off of Lake Erie here in PA. You don't have to shovel rain!! bella(dot)harriger(at)yahoo(dot)com

  133. We are having one rainy spring as it looks like you are. Any day of sunshine is greatly appreciated. I must admit though, I like to sew when its raining, but this is a bit too much, if you know what I mean.

  141. I recently moved to Gresham, Oregon, and we have had the wettest weather in a long time. We have had rain, sleet, snow and even hail, which is incredible for this time of year. Today it is sunny and mild with a few clouds. Just beautiful! Finally the fog is gone!

    ReplyDelete
  142. Wow that's intense! I live outside of Philadelphia PA. It's my ideal weather. All 4 seasons with mild winter, lots of sun but not too hot in the summer, and plenty of outdoor greenery to enjoy! Best of luck with the rains and repairs!
