Quiltmaker's 100 Blocks Vol 6 blog tour !!!

Quiltmaker's 100 Blocks Tour !!! 
 Again  in Vol  6    !!!!!

 Hi  everyone, 
          It's   has been a while, since my last post,  but  now  that things are back on an even coast
 of the roller coaster of life, things are   starting to look up again.
       I had another health scare , last year so did not get to submit for Vol 5, but did for Vol 6.  http://www.quiltmaker.com/quiltypleasures


      This time I entered one of my applique designs, and I got selected for the Vol 6  Quiltmaker's 100 blocks !!!   I even finished the wall hanging in time to get it sent out to Colorado,
 and it is also in the magazine.  
     So on to the good things, here is my block
 that I designed, and the magazine named it Heart Blossom.  You will find my block on page 22 of the magazine and it is # 510.  Now in the block here you will not see  a   flower.  When you make this block, I want  you the quilter, to add your favorite flower  or flowers.   So here is my block - -   

Here is the wall hanging I made with my blocks and you will notice that I have added flowers to my blocks.  On this wall hanging I only added one flower to the block, but if you want to add more flowers, then by all means  do so.  I like to make my patterns look complicated, but are really easy to do.  You will find that the leaves are the only pattern that you need to cut out.  the rest  - the vine and the heart are all made by using bias tape.   If you are using my pattern,  you are making  a piece for you  or someone who is important to you, so use the colors you or they like and the flowers too.   Don't be afraid to add more flowers, then are showing here.
  I do hope you all will go to the web site of Quiltmakers - - here is the link  - - http://www.quiltmaker.com/100blocks.html  and a link at the top of this post.  And see the other artists and their blocks  that are doing the blog tour.
For those who stop by my blog and leave a comment  about  my block and wall hanging,  and along with the comment, leave  their name &  email address ( have to be able to reach you if your name is picked) , someone will be picked as a winner to receive a complimentary copy   Quiltmaker's 100 Blocks , Vol 6.    Again, I will put everyones' name in a hat on Monday, the 12 and my granddaughter will pull the winning name. 
Unfortunately, I am scheduled to be out of town from Friday morning, Nov 9 until late Sunday evening, Nov 11.   So I will get to read all the comments when I get back.
