On May 7 we kicked off on the #100Days100Blocks2017 adventure and as of today we’re up to Block 95 out of 100 and it’s time to announce our next group of 10 blocks winner. I can’t believe there’s only 5 blocks to go and our adventure this year will be over. (Never fear if you missed it this year, it’ll be back next year and it’s going to be a BIG one! I’ll announce details at block 100!) Today I’m also sharing a really great offer we’ve got for those of you thinking about how you’re going to quilt your quilts so be sure to read through the post for more details.
This year I’ve made it super simple for you to win; there’s prizes for groups of 10 blocks, groups of 50 and for all 100. (Click here to see the full list of prizes and entry requirements.) It’s great for those that come to the event late, those that fell off the wagon last year and for those that have life’s little mishaps spring up along the way. So without further ado, let’s find out who’s won the amazing prize of a $100 Gift Voucher to The Modern Quilter and the $100 Gift Voucher to The Strawberry Thief…

Please note: The prize is open internationally. Winner is responsible for own insurance and custom charges where applicable.

This group of 10 blocks has some of my most favourite blocks in it and I love seeing them all together in one place. I’m so very lucky and humbled to have Cotton + Steel sponsor this years quilt. I already had quite a substantial collection of their fabrics but they were kind enough to send me the missing bits and pieces as well as some of their upcoming ranges to use in my blocks. It’s been a smorgasbord of fabrics to choose from with each block. I was twice blessed when Sulky Threads agreed to come on board for the event as well. Sulky Threads have partnered with Cotton + Steel to create an amazing line of 50wt Egyptian Cotton Threads. (Click here to find out more about Cotton + Steel Thread by Sulky.) In a beautiful twist of fate there’s 100 colours available in the current range of threads which means I get to showcase a different thread colour with every block.
