I have had the privilege of testing about a dozen patterns for Quiltmaker 100 block magazine for about 6 issues now. The latest issue has or will hit the stands and I have had a wonderful time piecing these blocks. I had a good time doing the applique because as you may know…. it is not where my skills or enjoyment lie.
I have to say it is a great magazine! There are some very creative blocks and they have great instructions. There is a block for every skill and experience level and a little something for everyone’s esthetic!
I keep testing blocks to push me to try different ways of piecing. It forces me to read patterns and practice. I keep in touch with what’s trending. But the biggest reason is that it is a challenge … I love the deadlines, checking for problems and really keeping myself immersed with the quilt world.
THANK YOU Quiltmaker, you really have a winner in this issue! I will be testing blocks for next issue…. looking forward to it.
