Quiltmaker's 100 Blocks Blog Tour and Giveaway

Today I am one of 10 lucky bloggers on the Volume 9 blog tour for Quiltmaker's 100 Blocks.
 
This is the third time I have had a block published in this magazine and this block is the one I am most excited about.  Why? Because I love riding my bike.  I named it "Go Wheels?"
It's on page 45. 
 
The flag is 3-D and the streamers are made from DMC floss.
What fun!
I like to use a shiny thread when I blanket stitch applique, either rayon or polyester.
It gives it a little pop. Wouldn't a dog look cute in that basket? (I have just the one.)
 
I loved this block so much when I made it, that I had to make a quilt using it.
I hand stitched all of the bicycle sayings with some help from a friend, using 3 strands of DMC floss
and a back stitch on a coarsely woven utility cloth.
 
Quiltmaker is giving away a copy of the magazine to one of my visitors.  Leave a comment telling me the last time you rode your bike along with your e-mail address so I can contact you if you win, with random.org.
 
For a second chance to win, Follow me on Bloglovin' and let me know, to receive a signed copy of the magazine from me. Remember to leave your e-mail address.  I will be choosing both winners at the end of the blog tour. To visit the other blogs. head over to Quiltmaker's blog to see the list by clicking HERE.
 
Thanks for stopping by.

  14. Cute as can be, and Miss B would look so at home in the basket! I love the 3-D details! I usually use DMC for things like rope (think clotheslines) or cow's tails, horses' manes, really adds to the cuteness! Congrats on being included in the book!

  17. What a cute block! The last time I rode my bike... well, since spring has just arrived, we haven't taken the bikes out of the garage yet. So, last time I rode was last fall. Time to get going again! Thanks for sharing.

  21. I haven't ridden a bike in years! I grew up in VA Beach where bike riding is easy since it is flat, flat, flat there. Now I live in a place with hills, so bike riding is a lot harder, and I'm a lot older. I ride a stationary bike at the gym, though. Does that count?

    ReplyDelete
  22. Such a cute block! The last time I rode my bike was about 5 years ago (yikes)...

  33. How I'd love to have a bike! Living on a dirt road with sharp rocks and cactus and mesquite thorns makes having one not very practical but walking works. Your block and the little quilt are terrific. Also, I love Bailey.

    ReplyDelete
  42. I have a pink bike (with basket, of course) but I haven't taken it out yet this spring. As soon I get the last set of papers graded, I am heading out for a ride. Up to my nose with grading and writing exams. Soon, soon the semester will be over and then my time is my own.
    Great block!

  69. OMG, is this just the cutest. It takes me back to when I was a wee one learning to ride myself. What a great memory quilt this would make! Thanks!!!! :-)

    ReplyDelete
  70. That is a very fun block - especially all the extras you added (hmmm I wonder how I could add playing cards to the wheel spokes?). I haven't ridden in years unless you count an exercise bike (which I also haven't ridden in years). But, my twin is an avid rider, as is her husband. That would make a nice gift for their wall. Thanks for the opportunity! notwendy gmail

  73. I guess I was about 64 the last time I tried to get on a bike. Mick had raised the seat and I've doubled my weight and immediately fell on my bottom right in the driveway. I looked around and didn't see anyone so I just crossed my legs and pretended I was just sitting there until Mick could figure out how to get me up......giggle.

    ReplyDelete
  74. I haven't rode my bike for at least 2 summers. Between the bugs and heat in the summer and the weather the rest of the year, it isn't always a pleasure to ride.

  105. What a fun and clever blocks you have designed for Quiltmaker's 100 Blocks, Volume 9. It has been so long since I have rode a bike that I don't even know if I could even ride a bike. I love the idea of a quilt using this block. This is just a darling block and would surely make a cute baby quilt. Thank you for this design and giving all of us a chance to win.

  107. I haven't ridden a bike in years. Probably because I moved to a not so friendly bike riding state. Where we came from biking and bike lanes abound.

    ReplyDelete
  108. I love the bike block,, what fun to see on a quilt. The last time I was able to ride my bike was in sept of 2013, but bike ride season is starting here again so it will not be long and I will be riding again, happy sewing to all,

  110. Your block is so detailed! Love it. The last time I rode my bike was last year in France. My family took a bike ride in the French countryside. We learned that drivers drive a LOT faster on the side roads than Americans do! Scary...

  117. I think I haven't ridden my bike in over 5 years. Loaned it to my father-in-law (he's a full time RVer) and it was promply stolen at one of the RV parks he frequents and it hasn't been replaced. :-( Oh well, that just means more time for sewing, right? Congratulations on getting into the publication. Thank you for sponsoring the giveaway.

    ReplyDelete
  123. The last time I rode a bike was probably in the late 50's or early '60's--I could never get the hang of hand brakes and not braking by reversing the pedals. I understand, though, that coaster brake bikes are available in stores again, so I may have to look into that. LOTS of bike trails in the Midwest.

  129. Last time I rode a bike was over 30 years ago when I was in grad school, riding on the shoulder to get my mail, when a van moved into the shoulder and hit me. I survived with only a few stitches in my head and a broken wrist, but I haven't ridden since. My best guy friend loves to ride, though, and rides 70-100 miles a week, just for fun.

    ReplyDelete
  132. I honestly can't remember the last time that I rode a bicycle outside. Does my stationary bike count? That I rode during the winter, when I couldn't get out to walk. Which was a lot this year.

  134. As I drove home from work this evening, I saw someone riding their bike and thought about how I would be getting mine out on the road this weekend!! Here on the east coast of Canada, we are still experiencing snow and very cold temperatures, so getting your bike on the road is a wonderful, wonderful thing! I love your block!

  144. I haven't ridden a bike since college - and I won't tell you how long ago that was! I own a bike, a relatively new one, but I haven't ridden it yet. I live in the suburbs, and there aren't any good trails around to ride on. And I won't ride in the streets - too many cyclists get run over by cars!

    ReplyDelete

  147. I haven't had a bike since my parents moved to Washington state--I was living on campus and my bike was at my parent's house...it got loaded into the moving truck and off it went. That was 16 years ago. You'd think I would have had my bike with me as a student, right? I don't know. My hubby wants to get me a really nice bike one of these days--but we gotta teach the kiddies to ride theirs.
    Cute block!

  153. Last fall is the last time I rode my bike. I was riding it to work until it got to cold. I will be getting it out this weekend to start riding again, now that it is warmer. Thank you for a chance to win.

  158. I last rode a bike sometime int he 90s when we lived in Colonial Williamsburg. We rode on the Colonial Parkway, and I barely made it! Everyone was waiting for me to catch up!

  160. I have a beautiful brand new bike and this spring I plan on putting some miles on it, which will be great because after a long and cold winter, I feel slightly out of shape!

  161. I think about 10 years ago. I keep moving to places that have large hills, which makes riding difficult. ebbtide45 at yahoo dot com

  163. We haven't ridden since last fall, but when we do, we ride our off-road bikes in the state parks of Texas, and around our beautiful little town of New Braunfels, TX. And we ALWAYS wear our helmets! This block just jumped to the top of my favorites list!

  167. Just spent winter in FL, bought a neighbors bike for $25.00 used to ride often when I was
    Younger. Nice to be back on a bike riding but tough against the beach wind.

  168. I haven't ridden a bicycle in years! I had a terrible accident as a child so it took me many years to get back on. And even then, I hesitated. Okay, probably much more info than you wanted but there you have it! I love your block, love applique! Thanks for a chance at the give-away.

  171. Well, I rode my bike last summer (unfortunately some knee issues). Really love riding in a couple of our local parks, they have all of the hills, scenery, so peaceful! Your block is so wonderful, and I love the embroidery in the alternating blocks. Thanks for sharing what you love!

  172. I love your bright cheery bicycle block. I use to ride with some of my girlfriends in the outdoors around our 6.2 mile park. But then allergies kicked in so I ride a stationary bike at the fitness club and dream about the outdoors.

  175. Good grief, it has been decades. That shocks me--I used to ride my bike everywhere. Then I got my drivers license, and ventured farther and farther from home. Now we live in the country and all the roads are gravel, and not great for bikes. But your block brings back sweet memories. :)

  176. Oh my word, I can not remember the last time I was on a bike, but I've been recently helping my 5 year old learn to ride hers. Does that count? So far, this is my favorite block!
