A great big welcome to you!! It’s Day 5 of the 100 Blocks Volume 8 blog tour! I know you’ve been having a blast and a half on the tour so far!


I’m Kay Mackenzie, a designer and author in Santa Cruz, California. My website is By Kay Mackenzie, which has all of my books and patterns on it, plus select notions for the appliqué enthusiast. If this is your first time visiting my blog All About Appliqué, I’m glad you’re here! You’ll find a wealth of information about appliqué — all kinds — here on the blog. If you’re a regular reader or you’ve been here before for one of these hops, welcome back!

I’m delighted and proud to say that this is my seventh time having one of the 100 Blocks. I just love participating in these special issues!

My block this time is traditional in nature. Baskets of fruit and flowers abound in our appliqué heritage. Here’s my Basket of Oranges.

One of my very favorite color schemes is the complementary combination of orange and teal. Putting oranges in the basket led me very naturally to choose a tealy blue for the basket!

There are many other possibilities of course.

Brown is a natural choice for baskets.

Making a bright quilt? How about a purple basket?

I hope you enjoy this block and all the other ninety-nine scrumptious and varied designs in Volume 8.

The editors of Quiltmaker’s 100 Blocks are sponsoring a giveaway of a copy of the magazine! If you’d like to enter to win, please leave a comment here on this post before 12:00 noon California time on Wednesday, November 20.

Good luck in the drawing, and remember that if you are subscribed to the blog by email, clicking “Reply” will not enter you in the drawing. Come to the blog on the internet and leave your comment there. :)

Many thanks!
Cheerio,
Kay

    nice block!

  154. Holly Casey on November 15th, 2013 1:27 pm

    I love the oranges in the basket. I especially like the simplicity of the basket. It reminds mw that I’ve avoided traditional basket designs in the past because they were fussy or frilly. Yours is just right. Thanks for the inspiration.

  155. Madeline on November 15th, 2013 1:30 pm

    a basket of oranges, what an original idea! How about a basket of apples, nuts, etc?

  156. Suzanne Flaro on November 15th, 2013 1:32 pm

    I am a beginner and as of yet I haven’t done any applique work. Your basket of oranges is very cute and looks like a good place to start with applique.

  157. JunkArt on November 15th, 2013 1:33 pm
