Welcome to the Block Party!!

The time has arrived and it's time to PARTY!  We are so excited to see everyones submissions, this should be so nuch fun and great inspiration all around.  Thanks so much for participating and for our great sponsors and judges, this has been so exciting for us!  If you don't have a block to enter, check out the submissions and let them know if you think they've done a great job, we all *heart* comments :)

There are three separate parties to link up to below so make sure you link your block to the correct party.  (If all of your blocks are in the same post that's fine, just link it up again but choose the correct block as the thumbnail picture.)


Just to clarify, your post must have been made in the last three weeks since we announced the block party (Jan 17th) AND include the Block Party button (see sidebar). 


You pick the category that your block should be in. Even though some blocks qualify for 2 categories, just pick one. Do not enter 1 block in more than 1 category. 


Please label your link with the type of block first, name of block (optional) and your name and/or blog name.
Example title: MODERN, Pinwheel, Quilt Story


If you still have any questions please refer to this post or this post.






Traditional Block


Modern Block


Creative Block

Thank you so much everyone for entering and checking out everyone's cute blocks.  Also there will NOT be Fabric Tuesday linky party tomorrow, but it will be back next week!

Oh, fudgebunnies! I put my 1st block in the wrong link list. :( Y'all are clever enough to figure that since the caption starts with CREATIVE that I meant to put it in that category right?

Sorry for the extra work!

kelly said...

yep, i put mine in the wrong list too. it's #1 in the 'modern' section. and i linked it back to you instead of me. beginner's mistake!

kelly said...

aaaaaaaand i was in such a hurry to get it uploaded that i didn't label it properly.

Sarah Lou said...

i dont understand how to check out the submissions??

jednoiglec said...

There's not form to put links:(

I know why: on the 7th of February Linky Tools is not still free:(

What should we do? Wait for new links or send photos via mail?

Bellgirl said...

Hi Guys, I can't submit my block to the Creatiev category, but here's the link, perhaps you can work it out? It's Creative, Concertina Fan, Bellgirl: http://bellgirl.com.au/2011/02/concertina-fan-block-for-beehive-and.html

My Sweet Prairie said...

am I wrong? I want to join now and the links are expired? help.

Sarah Craig said...

The links are expired (possibly because they are now a pay service?) but here's my info -

CREATIVE - Elephant Country Safari - Confessions of a Fabric Addict

http://confessionsofafabricaddict.blogspot.com/2011/02/make-list-monday-33-joining-block-party.html

Please let me know if I need to do something different to link up!

Kirie said...

Links were working shortly after starting link party. Then suddenly (probably about 1.a.m. MST) they stopped.
Here are my blocks: http://shape-moth.blogspot.com/2011/02/block-party-at-quiltstory.html
2 cxreative - 'Hoo's there? raw edge applique owl and 'Shape Moth' raw edge applique moth in a frame, and 1 modern - 'Stripe me' according to the name - with stripes.

I'll check in again later. I have all three blocks in the same post. I hope that is okay. I'll just enter the post on each linky?

I got links up, but they don't go back to my web page. The web page link didn't show the pictures from my post, just side bar pictures. I don't do blogspot, and maybe that's why.

The blog link is:

jezibels said...

Mine was supposed to go into Creative, it went into Modern, should I try to put it into Creative?

nerospostandpatch said...

Hello! I'm happy to party with all of you! Good luck for every one!
Thank you for a fun party!
Sunny wishes from Teje and Nero!

Melanie@Crafty Cupboard said...

I can't delete my wrongly labeled link... Sorry- i just added another correctly labeled one.

twin fibers said...

So fun! I'm going to enjoying reading about all the blocks! :)

Poppyprint said...

Thank you for hosting such a great party! I am sorry to say I made a booboo - you can go ahead and remove entry #30 from the Traditional block party because it is actually my Modern entry. so sorry!

btw, I like the way you are determining the prize winners - it is nice for non-blog writers to have an opportunity and you are right, it precludes a popularity contest. Great idea! Thanks again for providing a venue for sharing work with others!

emedoodle said...

I love this roundup of fun blocks!!! Thanks for hosting!

Kristen said...

Wow! Great turnout. I know where my free time during naptime hour will go!

Lynne (Lily's Quilts) said...

Thankfully I'm not the only one to have put my first block (Sleeping Beauty) into the wrong list - it needs to be deleted from traditional, sorry! I have added it into creative, where it belongs but now there are two of them. Oops.

Lori said...

Some really nice blocks here. So much information. Squares I have not seen before. I am loving this.

randi---i have to say said...

wow, girls! you have a ton of great entries here. off to check some of them out...:)

Crimson Lily said...

From what I have seen so far, these are some amazing quilt blocks. I had every intention of joining the parties, but life got in the way and I totally forgot about it. Good luck to everyone!
