Welcome "Quiltmaker's 100 Blocks" Blog Tour!


This is the block that I made for Quiltmaker's 100 Blocks; it's called "Candlestick." It's quick and easy to make, and I like it's lacy, airy style. Quilt blocks that have a stronog diagonal are particularly nice because there are so many ways to arrange them in the quilt top. Some of the many options are: barn-raising, on point, X's, and zig-zags. Then you could add sashing, or not.

If you make a quilt using this block, I'd love to see a photo. We'll post them here on the Selvage Blog. I can see some selvages looking good in this block too!

Blocks that allow for many possible settings give each quilter the opportunity to put her (or his) signature on the quilt. Thanks for so many options. It's a great block.

I like your block. I heard about this book from someone else that has a block in there. That is neat I know two of the people that have blocks in a book.

Love the Block Karen. Would look fantastic in scrappy reds and greens with a gold candlestick. That is what I can see.
Thanks for joining in the fun :-)
Cheers
