Quiltmaker's 100 Blocks, Volume 7, BLOG HOP


Welcome back for Quiltmaker's 100 Blocks,
Volume 7, Blog Hop!

You are so smart to get sneak peeks at what the designers are offering this time, as well as get yourself entered for fun prizes!

If this is your first time here, Welcome.  I'm Robin Koehler, a designer of fun, new quilts that range from whimsical applique to paper piecing.  I have been very busy preparing for Spring Quilt Market where I will unveil brand new Autumn designs.  So if Autumn is your season, check back in June so you will have plenty of time to get one done for snuggling.

Of course, I am again thrilled to be a part of this amazing ride!

VOLUME 7
For those of you that have been along for my ride since Vol. 2, you may remember that I am always in the 'foundation pieced' section.  This time you will find me in the 'mixed technique' section, block #635.  There is still paper piecing involved but I also mixed in some regular piecing.

Clown Go Round #635 by Robin Koehler of NESTLINGS by Robin
I went through a few color variations before deciding on this particular one.  Since 2008 I have been playing with this block while attempting art quilts.  Even when trying to make art, I could feel the pull of traditional quiltmaking on my work.  Here is what the very first one looked like....
I really love the contrast of the gold and the black, and that it is on point, but I will be disassembling this soon to remove it from the canvas and probably frame it instead.  If you notice, the 9 patch from above has been reversed, using the paper pieced blocks in the 4 directions layout vs. the corners.  Hopefully you can also see that I used the block template for my quilting lines in the corners.
Look at how much color can fool the eye...Same layout as above but because the center fabric matches the bottom corner of the
paper piece segment, you get a completely different feel.
Same fabrics from the layout in the magazine with different placements.  I truly love them all but chose the one that got into the magazine for being most photogenic and graphic in a thumbnail view.  As fun as the bottom one is, you lose the block detail with all the red.
 
Lastly, what about leaving out the 9 patch squares completely and just placing the paper piece blocks together.....
What a fun star block this makes.  This is how we see most paper piece designs but the next time you look at one, think about breaking it apart and adding in some solid squares instead:)
 
Thank you for stopping by and reading about the journey of one little block!

Hi,
I loved the block you contributed but my favorites are the floating flower, the purples just beg you to touch. I am also a big redwork fan and I can't decide which appeals more the claddagh trio or the swaying hearts trio.
Congratulations on your block making the quiltmakers 100!

Nellie Duclos said...

Wow! That Butterfly Cabin is different-my sister loves butterflies, but I like your Redwork. I had to "Google" Claddagh to find the exact meaning. I knew from the way it was spelled it had to be Gaelic and being half Irish it intrigued me. Thanks for motivating me to learn more about a beautiful design from my background.

LB's Sandbox said...

Love the Harvest Nights pattern. You are so creative; just wish I had your talent.

Life's a Stitch said...

I've always been attracted to butterfly patterns so I have to go with Butterfly Log Cabin. You have some wonderful ideas and it was great to see the patterns you've designed. I have a friend who loves flip flops so I was reminded of her when I saw your Coastal Christmas block. sbeyer@sbcglobal.net otherwise known as Sarah.

After piecing for MANY years, I'm now determined to learn the paper-piecing technique. Your block looks like a perfect example for me to try. I can't choose a favorite pattern... I love Blossom Swirls and Butterfly Cabin equally. Both are gorgeous!

Lisa said...

Fractured Roses is my favorite pattern!

~Kris~ said...

Las Flores de Amigas is a real knockout. I can see why it was accepted at Paducah. Congratulations. Thanks for sharing your talent.

Quilt Monkey said...

Great block - I love seeing how differently it can look. I love your pattern Butterfly Cabin - very pretty!

Madeline said...

I like the Butterfly log cabin pattern. It would look great in my blue, green, and lavender batiks.

VickiT said...

Great quilt block Robin. Love the variations you've shown as well.

I really like the Claddaugh block as I have a good friend how cherishes her Irish roots. In fact she cherishes them so much that when she married a few years ago, her wedding ring is a Claddaugh. That would be a wonderful thing to make for them both as a gift. It would also be a challenge to myself to finally kick myself in the backend and try my first applique.
Thank you for the great post and congratulations for being included in this next issue of 100 Blocks, Vol. 7.

Several of the flower appliques are quite cute, but my favorite is Benign Fusion. Something different about it - not your usual flower.
Congrats on your block being published - very versatile!

Anonymous said...

Hi really like the Butterfly Log Cabin pattern and your block.

Cathryn said...

I love this block of yours. Reminds me of a witch's hat on point. I can see this is going to be a fun block to play with

Weedy said...

I don't need to go to your website. I like this one. Something different. Good job.

Pat V. said...

Your Butterfly Cabin pattern is so innovative! Never thought of using a log cabin block this way.

Karrie Smith said...

Your blocks are so beautiful, Robin! They are seriously, in my fave top 5!

I love Butterfly Cabin! It's so pretty :)

Judy @ CQC Library said...

I think I'd choose Butterfly Cabins...or wait--maybe Las Flores de Amigas! Hard to pick just one!

Julie said...

Hearts in Bloom looks like a fun Valentine's Day or Anniversary quilt. Thanks for the chance to win.

Gatorwomn said...


You have such cute patterns. My favorites are "He Loves Me" and "Garden of La Mancha"

Lavonna ZWB said...

Such a lovely block. Thank you for sharing it with us.

Ruth Rocker said...

Congratulations on your block being published in the magazine. It's beautiful. Thanks for a chance to win. I love the Butterfly Cabin pattern. Such an original setting for log cabin-type blocks.

Rachell said...

amazingly versatile. of course I like the star version!
congrats! it sure is fun seeing your Facebook posts.
my favorite of your patterns is the Claddagh of course--I want to make one desperately, since I wear a Claddagh ring and it's part of my blog title!
and Las Flores de Amigas is wonderful too.
reillyr2(at)hotmail(dot)com

Kathy Sue said...

How cute would this block look with Halloween fabrics (witches hats)!

Kathy Sue said...

As a retired Army nurse I love your "Home of the Brave" but I am also a sucker for all things log cabin so I aso love "Butterfly Cabin".

Mare said...

I love your Benign Fusion pattern.

banjo795 said...

Being mostly of Irish descent, I love the Claddagh!

Nancy Sue said...

Gingko Romance is very clever. With the heart cutouts from the leaves. It's awesome. Also awesome is your block. I can't believe the optical illusion when you match that one little piece to the background fabric. I also see the hidden fairygodmothers from sleeping beauty , if you just add 3 dots to the lighter part of the triangle for the 2 eyes and nose. (Makes sense in my head)LOL! Congrats on your block and being in the issue!

Shelor Robin said...

Swaying Hearts Trio is my pick of your patterns. Really like the blue version of your block--of course, like ALL of them!

Leslie Harker said...

Wonderful block! I really like your Butterfly Cabin pattern!

Judy1522 said...

My favorite pattern is your Claddagh pattern. I love your block. I enjoy seeing how it looks in all the different versions.

Martha said...

Love butterfly cabin - just finished a "plain" one but love your version. Cannot wait to get the new magazine - paper piecing is my next project!
