I'm on the cover - Quiltmaker's 100 Blocks - Give away

***Update, the giveaway is now closed. Congratulations to Lesley and Siouxzq who were the lucky commenters, thanks to the random number generator. ****

I'm so excited to have a block in the newest edition of Quiltmaker's 100 Blocks Magazine, issue #14. And I was pleasantly surprised to find that my block Gosling Goes Wild is on the cover. The magazine was just released so look for it at your local store.

A big welcome to my new visitors who are stopping by from Quiltmaker's Blog Tour. I hope you'll enjoy seeing my block and learning a bit about me: Sandra Starley, AQS Certified Quilt Appraiser, antique quilt collector and lecturer, quilt designer, etc. and leaving a comment to be part of the GIVE-AWAY to win a your own copy of the magazine with photos and patterns for all 100 blocks (more about that later). . .

Drumroll: Here is Gosling Goes Wild!! When I'm not using traditional antique colors, I love working with black and white fabrics especially dots. I really like to tweak and modernize antique patterns and Pinwheels and Flying Geese have been around for a long time.



Gosling was inspired by antique quilts and modern fabrics and has a fun twist. It is made up of 3-D folded geese blocks. You'll have to see the magazine for more details. Gosling is Block #1397 on page 60.

I'm a covergirl. There it is on the second row...
