Quiltmaker's 100 Block Tour Today !!!!

 Good morning everyone!!!

   When I 1st woke up this morning, I wanted to rush to the computer and check out my blog and Quiltmake's Blog Tour page, but I made myself wait.  I had to get my granddaughter off to school, she's in the 5th grade and follow my routine.  I can also see that blogging is going to be addictive, at least at 1st.  Plus, I do need to learn more about post pictures and tweeking my blog page. 
   But imagaine my surprise when I went to the " Quiltmaker's 100 Blocks Blog Tour ":  and the 1st block that popped up was mine- -  # 296  !!!!!!   Like I mentioned in the post, earlier this morning, the rough line drawing of my block  and wall hanging layout, is not so hot, but for my 1st attempt at putting something like that on a blog, I feel I did good !!!!     But I will take some picutres this week of the block in another color set and a picture of the wall hanging. 
   And I want to thank those who have already commented on my block and blog and everyone who has commented today, their names go into a hat for my granddaughter to pull a name from.  And that lucky person will get the copy of the Quiltmaker's 100 Block Vol # 3.
  In the meantime, here is a color picture of my block  # 296  - - Around the Block

  75. Congrats on the honor of having your block chosen! I have always liked the pinwheel block, it is so versatile, whether as a stand alone or filler block. I really enjoy these '100 blocks' magazines, I've wondered how a quilt with one of each block chosen would be.. maybe one day I'll choose to make one. Congrats again, and best wishes.
