Blocks anyone???

Who would have guessed four years ago when I bought Bee eight sets of alphabet blocks — including sign language and braille — that I’d be doing a post about blocks that had nothing to do with my typography obsession. Well, here it is…

The volume 6 of 100 Blocks is coming out soon and guess who’s name is on the cover… Jo Morton’s. And mine. My name is on the cover of something along with Jo’s… Squeeeeeee!!!

(Have I ever mentioned that Jo Morton is one of my heroes???)

My block is all about the quilt I want to make but probably never will, so I’m hoping someone out there will actually make it so I can see it exist…

(How’s that for a sentence???)

This is the quilt I want to make, all subtle and soft, though I can see it being done in insanely vivid colors as well. It is another of the many quilts I design based on ideas from my weaving past. I really want to make this quilt to use as a throw rug; that’s allow isn’t it???

The block itself is pretty easy, just a bit fussy, though the hand embroidery adds a bit of time to it, time that I unfortunately don’t really have right now, no matter how badly I want to make this quilt. Here’s the block, which really is a fun little block…

thomas-knauer-sews-100-blocks-block

What I really need to do is make time to do a block every month and then in a few years I’ll actually have the quilt, as if I could ever be that organized. But that doesn’t mean you couldn’t be…

So, keep your eye out for the new issue of 100 blocks; it is hitting the world next week. But as an added little bonus the fine folks in the land of 100 Blocks are letting me give away a free copy, so just drop a comment below for a chance to win and I’ll pick a winner on Monday, November 12th.

Yay blocks!!! And yay winning stuff!!!

    I like the addition of hand embroidery. That’s exciting and different!

    That’s a gorgeous block, although it would take me forever to make a quilt out of it, too – all those tiny bits! It would be fun with a rainbow of your jellybeans.

    Ohh that block is awesome. I was just thinking about how to make a quilt top look woven. I used to live in Washington State (until this summer) and the Native American people in the Northwest are excellent weavers. I have a cedar hat and a basket. My Mom and I actually made a quilt that had a woven look to some of the blocks – but they were all shades of brown so they looked like cedar. So the woven look doesn’t really stand out in ours. LOL

    I love the subtle colors and the hand embroidery part! This quilt could be finished including binding and quilting and once in a while you could work a little on the embroidery…
    (I´d love to win a copy of this magazine as quilting magazines are so hard to get here.)

  37. 37
    Peggy says:

    This block is simple, but interesting. I hope you will just cut an extra strip when cuttin fabric. In no time you would be sewing that strip to another. Then while cutting, cut and be ready to sew.

    Denise says:

    Cute! In my imagination,there would be a little boy with a Hot-wheels car going all over this quilt! and of course making car noises with his mouth.

    I love your block. It is really quite the stashbuster. You gave us the idea and you could always make the squares larger. Someone will be making this quilt now that it is raining and cold. Just think – a nice warm quilt to cuddle in. Thank you for giving all of us a chance to win this awesome magazine.

    Karyn Ashley Smith says:

    I like how you took into account the way it would layout in a quilt/rug. I love the soft colors & embroidery. I’ll be marking this one as one to make…. the handwork would be a great thing to keep with me when waiting at appointments, or when DH is driving. Thanks & Congrats on being in the 100 (with Jo LOL!)

    Carol Sc says:

    I’m trying to figure out how to do this block with strips and very scrappy — think it could be done, but, like you, no time at present. Maybe do a few and pair them with another block? — would make an interesting quilt.

    What? Being organized? I’ve heard of that word myself before, but still don’t understand it myself. ha. Good luck. Maybe you’ll get that quilt/rug done someday Thomas.

    It’s an awesome looking block. Thank you for showing us. Now, you need to get on that and start it. Get that first block done. LOL

    I love the geometry of this block. I think a talented machine person could interpret your hand embellishment with her machine but I like the handwork very much. My mother was a weaver. I remember she told me if what you are weaving looks dead, just add a red thread. I think your hand embellishment really perks up the piece. I would love to do this as a little q=girl quilt or maybe even shift the pinky tones to green for either, or blue and be predictable for a boy. Now I will HAVE to have a copy of this issue.

    Terje says:

    This is such a beautiful block. I can see it as a modern toddler quilt, I can see it taking center stage in a bag or gracing a wall, in addition to being a rug as you dream. And your colors of yellows, oranges, (I’d add grays) and beige are so yummy!

    It’s a lovely block! One a month is do-able right? This reminds me of a welsh blanket. There’s one here if you scroll through a couple of pages, which it’s worth doing to look at the lovely vintage textiles – yum! http://www.elephantandmonkey.co.uk/collectibles.asp?category=4

    Rachell R says:

    Very nice! It really does remind me of my weaving patterns from my class in college. It reminds me how fabric is woven, close up! And also how the blocks put together weave into continuous designs too.

    I bet if you worked just 10 minutes a day on a quilt out these blocks you would get it done far quicker than you might think. And it would be awesome. Thanks for sharing.

    Congratulations on making the cover. Your block is very interesting and inspiring, though I’m not sure if I would be up to the hand embroidering.

    Given the popularity of low volume quilts, I’m sure that someone will definitely make your design a reality. Seriously, it looks much more achievable than piecing 3 gazillion hexies to make a quilt ;-)

    I love your block. What do you think about doing a different embroidery stitch for each stitched block. Would it ruin the simplicity of the block?
