Bloc Loc Ruler Giveaway! We Have a Winner!!
Let me take a moment to remind you why I love these rulers. They come with instructions to tell you exactly what size to cut your fabric. Once you have pieced your Flying Geese you just lay the ruler on top. There is a indentation on the ruler that fits perfectly along the seam line. Just hold it in place and trim around all four sides.
You end up with a Flying Geese unit that has perfect 1/4 inch seams and you know what that means....perfect points when you go to sew them together!
Any tool that lets me achieve that with ease is worth it's weight in gold! (I have not been paid by Bloc Loc or received any products from them-I just love, love, love their rulers.)
Now for the giveaway...
Bloc Loc will be sending one lucky winner the ruler I have been using in my Moda Blockheads tutorials. It is for Flying Geese units that finish at 1 1/2" x 3" and sells for $22.50.
The contest will be open from October 13-October 19, 2017. A winner will be chosen by random number generator and I will announce the winner on Friday October 20th. The contest is only open to residents of the US. (Sorry international friends, but Bloc Loc is covering shipping as well.)
To enter, leave a comment telling me how long you have been quilting. You can get a bonus entry if you also leave a comment on my post for the giveaway on my Facebook page.
Happy Quilting! Debra

I love, love, love your tutorials. I don't think I could have made these blocks without your help. It would make life so much easier if I had a Bloc loc.
10/13/2017 10:32:33 pm
Thank you, Roxanne! I am thrilled to hear these tutorials are helping you along!

I have been quilting for about 8 years. I mainly piece, but do appliqué using Heat & Bond and machine appliqué. I appreciate your blog and and requesting these Bloc Loc rules for my birthday and/or Christmas. I have one and love it.

I have only been quilting now going on my third year. I have loved your tutorials and I sure would love to have and use this bloc loc to make flying geese go easier.
10/13/2017 10:36:04 pm
Thank you, Donna. Always fun to meet quilting newbies and be able to offer guidance along the way!!
10/14/2017 05:45:47 am
I have been quilting for 24 years already! Whew! I love seeing new techniques and your tutorials are my favorite! Thank you
10/14/2017 12:21:11 pm
Thank you, Elizabeth! I know what you mean, hard to believe I picked this up over 30 years ago-back in the days before rotary cutters were the norm-wow what a difference they have made!
10/14/2017 06:33:07 am
I very much appreciate your tutorials. You can gotten me through some very difficult blocks that I might never have attempted on my own. THANK YOU!! Also, thanks for making me aware of the The Bloc Loc flying geese ruler.
10/14/2017 12:22:28 pm
Thank you, Cheryl. I am so glad you have been trying the harder blocks with me.
10/14/2017 07:03:36 am
You make the BEST tutorials for these difficult blocks. I have always wanted a BlocLoc ruler, but the cost is prohibitive.
10/14/2017 12:23:54 pm
Thank you so very much, Louise. I know what you mean about the cost-I got mine a few years ago in a set which was much cheaper.
10/14/2017 08:05:36 am
I have been quilting, I use that term loosely!!!, a whopping 8 months and have been following your Moda blockhead tutorials. thank you for the opportunity to add the bloc loc to my collection. Always on the lookout for ways to improve on those pesky points! Thanks for all you do.
10/14/2017 12:24:45 pm
Thank you, Skeeter! I hope we have you hooked now!
10/14/2017 02:08:21 pm
I have been Quilting for 5 years. Really love my bloc loc for HST's. Would love to try this one.

I’ve been quilting for about 15 years. I appreciate your tutorials. They have been very helpful. I LOVE the Bloc-Loc rulers! Couldn’t quilt within them!
10/16/2017 09:32:47 pm
Thank you, Linda. I appreciate your comments. Quilting has sure come a long way since I started-the tools we have available now are such a help!
10/15/2017 04:59:47 am
Started quilting in early 70s, before rotary cutters, when you had to draft your own patterns/templates. Stopped in early 90s, gave away all my fabric, notions, etc. (except a few special fabrics). Began again when I retired in 2013, and have been nonstop ever since.
10/16/2017 09:34:54 pm
I started in the 80's, I remember well having to trace pattern pieces and cut them out. I am so much more productive now! Wishing you many more quilts in your future!
10/16/2017 09:40:38 am
I started truly quilting in 2005. I had taken a few classes in the late 1998-1999 but then stopped until I moved back to Canada. Thanks for the chance.

I would love to win the lock block ruler. I have been quilting on and off for 30 years. I finally retired, medically unfortunately but still retired. I've been busy making baby quilts for my daughter and some friends. It takes me a little longer as I have arthritis and have to stop and rest quite often. Thanks for the giveaway.
10/19/2017 08:12:54 pm
Arthritis can be very painful and frustrating for those of us who like to work with our hands. I am glad you continue to find joy in quilting, Debra.

I have been sewing since I was in sixth grade....now I'm 61, and seriously quilting!!! Love the BOW blocks! Thanks for the give away!
10/19/2017 08:14:29 pm
Well, you have me beat, Martha! This is such a fun BOW with lots of talented quilters sharing their special gifts.
10/19/2017 03:36:43 am
I love the color choices of your Block and so appreciate your tutorials. I made my first quilt by hand my senior year of high school, that was 35 years ago. I've always planned on doing more quilts but life has just been busy. Thanks to all you ladies I have the courage to start again. I'm so loving it❤️
10/19/2017 08:15:37 pm
That is wonderful you have found the inspiration to pick up quilting again, Suzanne.
10/19/2017 04:31:28 am
I have been sewing for 60 yrs and Quilting for 19 yrs. I find it very relaxing and my family and friends enjoy the end results.
10/19/2017 08:18:08 pm
I agree, Linda. It is very relaxing-well for the most part, there are some blocks...I love giving away my quilts!
10/19/2017 04:44:52 am
I love your tutorials and especially the method for flying geese. I have been quilting for 30 years so I remember cutting out cardboard templates, drawing around them and cutting the pieces with scissors..... not much accuracy in those first quilts!
10/19/2017 08:19:03 pm
Thank you, Linda. Oh, those were the days!
10/19/2017 04:46:42 am
I started quilting over thirty ago, took a long break for family and have been back at it for 3 years. The tools and gadgets available now are fun and so helpful!! Especially Internet tutorials :)
10/19/2017 08:27:28 pm
Lol, Mary-yes the internet is a great help to us quilters!
10/19/2017 05:07:51 am
Thank you SO much for the tutorials you have written for these blocks. I haven't made any of them yet, but I have learned a lot about piecing from you. I keep hearing about the BlocLoc rulers and you have totally convinced me how wonderful they are.
10/19/2017 08:26:29 pm
Thank you, Louise! I hope you will jump in and give the blocks a try soon.
10/19/2017 05:55:56 am
I have been quilting 26 years but continue to learn new things daily. Thanks for the give away and these tutorials!
10/19/2017 08:25:17 pm
That is one of the things I love about quilting, Carolyn, constantly learning.
10/19/2017 05:56:54 am
I have been Quilting for ten years but learn something new every day! What a great tutorial! Wish I had seen this before making my block!
10/19/2017 08:23:50 pm
Thank you, Mary. There have certainly been some challenging blocks. I recently left Texas after 11 years in Abilene area. Wonderful people!
10/19/2017 06:12:03 am
I have been sewing for about 50 years, but quilting for the last 7 years thanks to my friends Anne & Elaine for getting me started. Still learning a lot!
10/19/2017 08:29:24 pm
Everybody needs friends like those, Denise!
10/19/2017 06:17:40 am
I’ve been sewing and quilting over 50 yrs. I love handy accessories. Like with cooking, the right tool can really make a difference.
10/19/2017 08:29:59 pm
That is so true, Dee!
10/19/2017 06:45:23 am
I’ve been quilting for 5 years now.
10/19/2017 08:30:30 pm
And I hope you are hooked Diane.
10/19/2017 07:35:53 am
I've never made flying geese with this method but your tutorial makes it very clear. I'll try it soon.
10/19/2017 08:31:45 pm
It really is my favorite-anything that speeds up the process with great results is a winner in my book.
10/19/2017 08:35:20 am
I have been quilting avidly for about 15 years now. As kids my sisters and I were all taught to sew at a very young age. All the scraps from clothing was cut into blocks and eventually made into quilts. So I guess in reality I've been quilting for around 50 years! Love Flying Geese!!
10/19/2017 08:34:20 pm
That is wonderful, Karen-carrying on the family tradition!
10/19/2017 09:59:57 am
Beautiful block and love the tutorial. The ruler would be hand.
10/19/2017 08:35:15 pm
Thank you, Barbara.
10/19/2017 10:31:26 am
I've been quilting for about 15 years. Your tutorials are excellent. I try to watch them before making the blocks. I have learned some new tricks! I have one of the square up block lock rulers and love it! I have seen the flying geese rulers but have not used them, but would love to.
10/19/2017 08:36:12 pm
Hi Susan! Well, I am glad to be able to go along with you on your quilting journey.
10/19/2017 10:41:17 am
I have been quilting about 24 years. Love your tutorial.
10/19/2017 08:36:46 pm
Good for you, Marilyn and thank you!
10/19/2017 10:56:41 am
I am new to quilting, really appreciate all the help. I have learned a lot.
10/19/2017 09:47:10 pm
That is wonderful, Carolyn. It is always a joy to meet new quilters!
10/20/2017 03:31:07 pm
Thanks so much for the tutorial and give away. I can't believe I won and I'm looking forward to using the Loc Bloc ruler. I meant to mention I was drawn to your blog by the very lovely way you laid the blocks out with the scrabble tiles. Creative!!
10/20/2017 09:28:35 pm
I am so happy for you, Dee! I hope you enjoy it as much as I do. How interesting that the Scrabble tiles drew you in!
