Quiltmaker's 100 Blocks Vol. 16 - Boxed Pinwheel - Blog Hop and Giveaways

Welcome to my stop on the Quiltmaker's 100 Blocks Vol. 16 Blog Tour!





I am so excited to have a block called Boxed Pinwheel in Volume 16 of the 100 Blocks magazine by Quiltmaker!  This is my seventh block to appear in the 100 Blocks magazines.  You can see my previous 100 Blocks: 

Boxed Pinwheel is a great confident beginner level paper-pieced block.  The 12" (finished) block was designed the block using Electric Quilt 7 (EQ7) and I really like how it looks like the pinwheel is floating in front of the frame.

I had some fun playing around with some quilt top designs using Boxed Pinwheel



....in a classic design..

... on point...

... with a dark background and some blocks with just a frame...

...a different colorway...


...how about some holiday versions?  Halloween...

...Christmas...

...4th of July or a Quilts of Valor quilt...


I hope that you have enjoyed all of these renderings of  Boxed Pinwheel being used in different quilt tops to see how versatile the block is!

Make sure you stop by Quiltmaker's blog, Quilty Pleasures, for some great prizes and a complete list of blog tour participants! 



Now on to the Giveaways (yes plural!):

  2. Thanks for holding the giveaway. First question-What inspires me to quilt?
    The primary answer is a great pattern. Secondary answers are a family member "desperately(I hate to say whinning),wanting a quilt or a new baby, graduation,etc. (robinsbusiness@hotmail.com)

  3. Second question: How did we sign to follow your blog? I am not sure,it was either on bloglovin or on your website there is a box with pictures of your followers/friends. Under that is a box marked "follow" and I click on that. I sign up using either way. I'm sorry I do not remember the exact method. Hope that does not luck out my ballot. (robinsbusiness@hotmail.com)

  6. How very lovely, good name too, so descriptive. What inspires me to quilt is other quilters, it doesn’t matter their skill level, I watch good quilters become great quilters and how beginners become proficient. I see quilters who may never achieve a high standard keep trying, that can take courage, they never give up. There are so many quilters all unique, all different, and all united in the love of quilting. I honour each and every one.

  13. The Boxed Pinwheel is gorgeous and I absolutely love seeing the different colorway ideas. The ways a simple quilt can be changed just by switching up the colors is fascinating to me. As for how I follow your blog. Hmmm. I'm new to this so I haven't really figured it out yet. Sometimes I see something on FB, other times I get an email. Occasionally, I just check my bookmarks and remember that I should check these blogs. I suppose I should look into Bloglovin'. :)

Quilting is such a fun pleasure and keeps me happy. Such colors and different combinations make it something different each day. With EQ8 it is even more enjoyable to design a quilt. Thanks so much for sharing.

I also design with my Quilt Wizard program & graph paper, love playing with fabric & colour and couldn't be without crafting in my life. Thank you and take care.

  136. Thank you for the great ideas. did you try a setting for the pinwheels where there was no sashing or alternate blocks? Just wondered if there was a secondary pattern or too much clutter? My inspiration for quilting is making charity items for my various guilds. I've made only a small handful for quilts for family and friends but there's always a need in the community. kaylace@bellsouth.net
