Sunshine and Daisies:
Quiltmaker's 100 Blocks Blog Tour

Greetings friends, fans, and blog hoppers - I am thrilled to be one of the stops on the very first day of Quiltmker's 100 Blocks Blog Tour. This quilty blog hop is celebrating the release of Quiltmaker's 100 Blocks, Vol. 11...and to say I am excited to be a part of this special magazine issue and blog tour for the second time would be an understatement - I am such a HUGE fan, collecting the 100 block issues over the years...and I am honored to be in the company of so many extremely talented quilt designers that I admire.

If you are visiting my blog for the first time - welcome! Let me introduce myself...my name is Belinda Karls-Nace and I am a needlework and quilting designer, teacher, and professional finisher by trade (Blue Ribbon Designs). I picked up my first needle at the young age of six (and made my first quilt around the age of eight) and have been designing professionally in the Cross Stitch industry for over 10 years. I am completely obsessed with just about anything created with a needle and thread - and when I am not working on my original cross stitch and counted thread designs, I find sheer enjoyment sewing and quilting...and in the very near future, I will be adding my sewing and quilting patterns to my brand (along with patterns that combine my love of handwork and quilting). I am an enthusiastic AccuQuilt fan, proudly owning all four of their fabric cutters and a wide assortment of cutting dies...and I am lucky enough to do some freelance designing and sample piecing/quilting for them, as well. My blog follows my creative journey - including needlework, sewing, quilting, and machine embroidery...my handcrafted Etsy items...my original designs and patterns...tips and tricks...pretty much anything that inspires me...I hope you enjoy your stay and visit often!

"Sunshine and Daisies" - Block #1051 - Page 37

My original quilt block for Volume 11  is called "Sunshine and Daisies" - it is block #1051 and can be found on page 37. My regular readers know I love to combine traditional piecing with machine appliqué, so creating this cheerful, floral block just came naturally. This entire block is AccuQuilt GO! friendly...and for those of you wanting to take advantage of the cutting dies I used, here is a complete list:
I like to audition my original blocks in multiples, with other traditional blocks, and with solid blocks to make sure they can be versatile...I also like to design blocks that will work well in a number of colorways. This particular block just happens to be a great scrap buster block! I had fun playing with this design in EQ7 (Electric Quilt 7 Software) and creating color variations to show it off...here is how it would look in a few different color schemes and how it would look adding borders for a table topper or wall hanging....


Since this is a 12" finished block, I decided it would make a fun, bright, and  cozy pillow. For a change, I chose to work it up in shades of blue and green, using Robert Kaufman fabrics for the the blues and a fun older Island Batik for the green. I simply added 1" strips (1/2" finished) on all four sides...and then 2" strips (1-1/2" finished) and 2" square (1-1/2" finished) cornerstones on all four sides... and added an envelope back...perfect for a 16" square Pellon pillow form...





Thank you so much for visiting my blog and sharing in my enthusiasm (and for reading this far)...and as a reward, I have a few giveaway opportunities!

  23. Besides collecting fabrics (sewing), I also love to collect books (and read). :-) I am trying to get back into cross stitching.

    ReplyDelete
  24. I love applique! At first glance, your blue variation reminded me of snowflakes. I might explore that possibility a little more!

    ReplyDelete
  25. I love to read, hence I spend a lot of time reading blogs about quilting, rather than working on projects. I taught myself how to crochet and with help from an aunt learned to make granny square. For many years, most of my creative time was spent doing counted cross stitch, but since I starting quilts I don't do much else, reading my kindle occasionally. poladydwd(at)yahoo(dot)com

  37. Lovely block! Wow! You own some handy fabric cutters! I would love to have an Accuquilt someday. In the meantime, quilting is my main hobby with a strong dose of walking with my dogs to keep me healthy and happy.
    Thank you for joining in the Quiltmaker blog hop.

    ReplyDelete
  38. Quilting IS my number ONE! But I love to bake, bake, bake. I also enjoy complicated recipes that yield awesome results like a steak sauce from scratch that used over 4 lbs of vegetables, 4 cups of liquid, makes only 1 cup of sauce and takes about 4 hours to make! Depth of flavor does not begin to describe it - It makes umami act like a toddler!

    ReplyDelete
  39. Absolutely stunning! I'd actually try it, IF I were taking a class with you! :)
    Over the years I've tried many hobbies and past-times. Now I quilt and do some paper crafting - scrapping and card making. If I'm not doing those two things then I'm doing my genealogy research or reading. So many ancestors, so many books! Thanks for this opportunity. a_mccay@yahoo.com

  49. I love the look of applique on traditional blocks. Quilting is my favourite hobby.

    ReplyDelete
  50. I learned to sew on a machine when I was 6 or 7. My first projects were crude doll cloths first and finally clothing when I learned in my 8th grade sewing class. I also made stuffed toys from patterns. I got serious about quilting in the late 90's.

My passion, however, is counted cross stitch and counted embroidery. I also love to read. I've done a little quilting, and dream of doing more some day.
