WELCOME TO ALL on behalf of myself and QUILTMAKER.    I’m honored to share “GALAXY X” with the Quiltmaker 100 Blocks Vol 5, and with all of you.     Below is one version of a “GALAXY X”  quilt, with the block as is.   Use your imagination with other blocks, or sashing for more great patchwork.

My fulltime job has kept me off the radar for about a year, and I’m so thrilled to be back and sharing new patchwork with you!

Post a comment on this blog, and be eligible to win your very own copy of QUILTMAKER 100 BLOCKS VOL 5.  And if you leave a comment, I’d love to know what part of the country you are from!   Check out the next few posts for more new patterns coming soon.   So long, puppy kisses from my “boys”, and JOYFUL STITCHING TO ALL!
