    Re: Block Magazine

    Pretty quilts are pretty quilts. If you see a pattern you like, choose fabrics that match your dining room and make yourself a pretty table cover. Blow them up and make a twin or full, or just make it as-is with "grown-up" fabrics and have a lovely lap quilt. A baby-sized quilt would make a great charity quilt for a seniors' home, Project Linus, or a pet shelter, too...

    Depending on the next issue, I will probably not continue getting this magazine. If I see a magazine on the newsstand and it does not have quilts in it that I would be interested in making, I don't buy it. I really believe that this should have been a special issue offered by itself. I really don't care that other people think that the quilts in this issue can be modified. I would rather have quilts and wall hangings that I can use as such.

    I got mine issue yesterday, but not a fan of this one. I have subscribed for about a year, so I have plenty to keep me busy for awhile. I think I'll stop my subscription and only download issues if something really catches my eye.

    Got mine yesterday too....blue cover. I have 4 GS......3 GD.

    So the time frame from receiving the issue in the app to the actual paper magazine is 1 week....or there about.

    I received mine yesterday and was pleasantly surprised with how many patterns I liked. Many of the quilts use just one charm pack, so they would be great stash busters or for using those random DD charm packs I've been collecting.

    There are no babies in my future, either. I received my issue with the blue cover today...I doubt I will make any of them, but I might reference a couple of ideas for a larger quilt.

    Squeal! Just got my BLOCK in the mail. I think it is a good resource for those who can never think outside the box for baby quilts. I think my favorite quilt in the entire issue is the Starry Night one. I would use my perl cotton and quilt a scene on it - that is if I ever get around to doing it. Love my BLOCK.

    No, I think they're all the same....just different color covers! On the app, it shows both covers, same inside.

    Ya I just received my copy, it's blue. So my question is... does the pink one have different patterns in it?

    No babies in my future to sew quilts for either but these would make lovely wall quilts and they all are easily adapted to a larger size. My cover is pink.

    Generally they are just full written patterns featuring quilts made from the video tutorials. Occasionally there are patterns for quilts not on a tutorial. The most recent Block features baby quilts and some are appliqué.....those patterns are included with the Block magazine. Most of the patterns featured in the current Block have no tutorial to go with them.

    Hope that helps!

    I got the pink Block a couple of days ago. I just looked at it this morning. Our guild makes baby quilts to donate so this issue may be handy for ideas for that project.
