Johnny Applebeads - Quilts from Quiltmaker's 100 Blocks

A few months back I was honored to have one of my quilt block designs featured in Quiltmaker Magazine's 100 Blocks issue. The block is a fun simple applique block called Quilt Seeds, #802 featured in Volume 9.
The original block, shown in the upper right hand corner of this photo, was originally made in plum and mustard, one of the color combinations that I'm crushing on right now. 
After I made that block I began playing around with color options and layouts and came up with a few fun designs using just this one block.
My very favorite layout using this block is featured in the Fall 2014 issue of Quilts from Quiltmaker's 100 Blocks, called Johnny Applebeads, and I love it!
I did play around with a few other color schemes, I always think it's fun to see what quilts can look like in a variety of color palates.

The original version was made using Designer Elements Solids by Free Spirit Fabrics, I machine quilted it using our Straight Line pattern, So Fine! thread by Superior Threads and Quilters Dream Poly Deluxe Batting.
