Quiltmaker's 100 Blocks Volume 8

Well Quiltmaker's latest volume in their popular series 100 blocks is now on available at your local newsagent. If you have been collecting these magazines you won't be disappointed with the latest issue. As before there are appliqué, piecing, foundation piecing and mixed techniques and all of these are new original blocks.
Patrice's Gift
My block, Patrice's Gift uses a mixture of foundation piecing and regular piecing... and it is an easy block ..but takes a little more fabric than one might assume:) 
Read my blog post below to find out how you can win your own copy of this great magazine thanks to the generosity of Quiltmaker.
For more chances to win copies make sure to visit the other designers who are featured in this week's blog hop. They are all listed here.
Quiltmaker also is giving out fantastic prizes every day to both local (American) and international (that's us) visitors. So don't forget to leave a comment here ... and there is always a special major prize on the final day.

Patrice's Gift looks complicated to make. I can't tell which part is foundation-pieced and which is regularly pieced. Like I said, it looks complicated. It's just my kind of block.
