Quiltmaker 100 Blocks {Blog Tour}

The winner is Amy @ Crafty Shenanigans

Hi Everyone,
I'm popping in for a little visit here with Renae.  
It's good to see you all, again!

Today is my stop on the Blog Tour for Quiltmaker's 100 Blocks (Vol. 7).
I was excited to have my block included in this edition. 

There I am, Block #652 on page 47.
Red in a Neutral Block

Last year when I was in the throngs of quilt club block making I came up with this design.  It's not anything innovative or ground-breaking, but sometimes a little tweak makes all the difference.
After making a block for one of the ladies I decided that it needed a little extra punch.  So I chopped it down, added the white skinny strip and then added the framing border.  I love the addition of the skinny white strip.  In my mind that gives it the extra pop it needs.

Here is a little mock up of my block in and edge to edge design. 
Pretty cool, huh? 

You could definitely make this design in a million different ways.  I sure did!  
Here it is in brown and pink
 And purple and yellow.
And here is the quilt I made out of my red blocks.
My Quilt in Quiltmaker 100 Blocks (Vol. 7)  
As some of you may know, I LOVE red quilts.  I even have a pinterest board dedicated to them.  So this is my nod to my love of traditional red quilts.  All the blocks are made with the same layout, but as you can see value placement will changes the look of the block as well.

And now, for the fun stuff...
