Our 100 Blocks Vol. 15 Blog Tour Rally was a great success last week! Thank you so much to everyone who joined us as we celebrated the release of Quiltmaker’s 100 Blocks Vol. 15 with block previews, designer inspiration, giveaways and more fun. Of course, we also want to extend a special thank you to all of the block designers and industry sponsors who participated in the blog tour — your tips and overall creativity were SO inspiring!

We hope everyone enjoyed all the new additions to the tour, too, like seeing the blocks in different colorways and learning more about the Quiltmaker team members who put this new issue together. Of course, one of our favorite new aspects of this issue’s blog tour was the Grand Prize Souvenir Hunt. We asked participating designers to hide “answers” to certain questions on their blog posts; then we asked YOU to find those answers and submit them at the end of the week for a chance at winning one of three big grand prize bundles.

These bundles have the best of everything — a copy of Vol. 15, all of our sponsor prizes featured on the daily giveaways during the tour, loads of goodies from our designers and more!

So without further ado, HERE are the Grand Prize Souvenir Hunt winners:

  • Patricia Moyles
  • Glenda White
  • Mimi Patrick

Congratulations to all the lucky winners!

(If you are curious who won our daily giveaways featured during the blog tour last week, check back on each day’s posts to see the updated list of winners.)

And, just because we’re still drooling over all these amazing new blocks, take a peek at a few more from Vol. 15 that weren’t featured during the blog tour last week:

QM100 WHITE 100 Blocks Vol. 15 Blog Tour Recap & Grand Prize Winners

Block #1445

Summer’s Blooms. My goodness! How cute is this block? We just love how Jackie used rickrack and buttons to create this bouquet of folded fabric flowers.

We hope you all had a blast on the 100 Blocks Vol. 15 Blog Tour and you got lots of ideas and inspiration for your own quilt projects. Oh! And if you don’t have your copy of Vol. 15 yet, be sure to look for it on newsstands or grab your copy in our online shop.

You can also sign up for our Special Issue Auto Ship program to have all of Quiltmaker’s special issues (including 100 Blocks) mailed to you as they are released.

Happy Quilting!
