Welcome gentle quilters!! It’s Day 3 of the 100 Blocks Volume 9 blog tour! These tours are always a rollicking good time, and I’m happy to be part of things once again.

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 all kinds of appliqué here on the blog. And, we have a featured appliqué book at the beginning of every month, given away in a drawing, which is way fun.

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

My latest title from Martingale, Scrap-Appliqué Playground, is all about different ways to put scraps together and cut appliqués out of them. After the book came out, I started playing around with more ideas for cutting appliqués out of something other than just one fabric. I let my mind run wild, and realized that there are clever ways to use traditional pieced quilt blocks for this! It’s the best of both worlds!

Half-Log-Cabin Tulip by Kay Mackenzie.

Cutting a tulip “just so” from a traditional half-log-cabin block gives a fun, stylized look to a very traditional appliqué flower. Split leaves and a patched background complement the pieced nature of the tulip.

The magazine gives complete instructions for making the block, and includes the tulip template that fits just right on the half-log-cabin once it’s pieced. Very cool.

Of course you can change up the color of the background and the flowers. Here are just a couple of possibilities!

I hope you enjoy this block and all the other 99 fabulous and varied designs in Volume 9!

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 Sunday, May 4.

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 at the bottom of the post. :)

Many thanks for your visit!

  113. Liz Engman on April 30th, 2014 3:18 pm

    Love this block. If I made it, it would have to be in memoriam for the two red tulips we planted in front, a gift from a coworker, that survived the cold –but succumbed to something that bit off the flowers and scattered the petals all over. Maybe next year.

  114. Nita on April 30th, 2014 3:20 pm

    That is a seriously cute tulip pattern! Good job!

  115. Donna Joy on April 30th, 2014 3:24 pm

  127. Barbara on April 30th, 2014 4:44 pm

    I do like the block. I could not figure out where the log cabin came in. That was a different way to make a block. I think it would look neat with the different colors of tulips.

  128. Joyce Carter on April 30th, 2014 5:03 pm

    Your block is absolutely gorgeous. I love to do applique. Congratulations and thanks for the giveaway.

  130. Sandy A in St. Louis on April 30th, 2014 5:12 pm

    These flowers are so cute! I never would have thought of using a log cabin block to make them, though!

  131. Barbara Y on April 30th, 2014 5:13 pm

    I usually don’t do applique – but your block is certainly tempting. I love log cabin blocks and this block combines the best to both worlds. Great job. Thanks for the opportunity.

    What a neat idea to make tulips with a log cabin-type block! Oh, would SO LOVE TO WIN this issue! The 100 Blocks magazine is to die for! Thanks so much for your creative inspiration.

  151. Gwen Wehner on April 30th, 2014 7:29 pm

    Great block! Fabric tulips are the only kind I can “grow” – the deer have eaten all the ones outside!

  152. Steph on April 30th, 2014 7:32 pm

    Very lovely block. And another new technique to try. What a neat idea!

  153. Andresa on April 30th, 2014 7:32 pm

    Terrific block. I think it’ll be a few more weeks before anything comes up from the ground, so I’ll have to enjoy your spring fabric tulips.

  154. Laura McFall on April 30th, 2014 7:33 pm

    Cute! I love tulips. Thanks for the great block.

  155. Lynn Mc on April 30th, 2014 7:42 pm

    Very cute! Lovely tulips for spring.
    Reminds me a bit of Victoria Findlay Wolfe’s technique of “made fabric”. Now I need to stretch my wings more and develop more appliqué skills.

    Love your patchwork behind the applique block. It really lends something special to the feel of the block, then to have the log cabin piecing on the tulips. It’s great! Thanks for sharing your ideas, pattern and giveaway.

    Good thing I got to you before the deadline! I had to work the last couple of days and got behind on my blog tour. Love the idea of the tulips from the half-log cabins. Tulips are blooming in NE Indiana as I type!
