Calling All Quilters!

Cynthie, from, is sharing one block pattern from the Gandiegow Matchmaker’s Quilt, which is featured in Some Like It Scottish, book #3 in the Kilts and Quilts Series (release date, July 7, 2015 and up for pre-order everywhere!)  
By following the block instructions at, making a block, and sending it to Iowa Star Quilts, you can join in the fun! We will randomly select enough blocks for a lap quilt – which you could win!

For each block you submit, you’ll receive an entry into the quilt block contest. You may submit as many blocks as you wish.
Go to for the block pattern and instructions.
Due date for submissions…June 6th, 2015.
ALSO…For every block you make, you’ll have FIVE extra entries into the completed quilt giveaway, too!
Happy Quilting and Reading,
