QuiltMaker's 100 Blocks, Vol. 16 - Heartbeat Block & Giveaways (now closed)

My work has taken me to a number of different states and towns within those states, much as a road trip when you go on vacation does.  I've been accused of being part gypsy because I've moved around so frequently, and in many ways my life has been a big road trip - a few yrs here, then a few years in the next place and so on.  I've enjoyed all of it (well, maybe not the 70-80 mph winds in the winter time in Wyoming) and have been privileged to make some good friends along the way. 

One stop of my life's road trip was spent teaching pre-engineering at a vocational school in a very small town in Wyoming.  While I didn't stay there for long because of circumstances, I was fortunate to make several very good friends at the school where I taught.  One of them, Barb (in the middle of the pic), is always on the go doing something - she is a nurse and works at the hospital, and she also teaches the CNA classes at the vocational school in where I taught engineering for 10 months.  The last several years her students have decorated the hallway leading to their classroom with garland that is shaped into the output of an EKG.   It was this display that the design for this block came from.


This is a shot of one of the sample blocks I made while testing the pattern.

I use red, white and blue fabrics to test my block patterns because then the blocks will always go together in quilts for injured veterans.













I've just set the blocks together, but with coloring reversed on alternate blocks so that the color bands flow across the quilt.   This quilt layout reminds me of the large cities where I've lived over the last 40 years of my road-tripping life - Phoenix, Boston, and the Dallas area.   All are busy cities with lots of buildings and traffic and the 'heartbeat' of the cities is very active and busy.

.
Next up is a layout showing what can be done with the block when you play around with which sections of the block that you use.   This layout was designed to use a large scale print as the background and allows the maker to feature large sections in the solid white squares.

This layout reminds me of the slower pace of life in the towns of Lafayette and Fort Wayne.  Both are smaller than the big cities where I've spent so many years of my life, but I've made some really good friends in both of them.  And Lafayette is where I went to grad school at Purdue for my degree in education.   Both towns are unforgettable stops along the road trip of my life.



For this layout of a table runner, I played around with the sections of the block so that only one band of the color goes across the layout for a table runner or bed runner.  This simple layout reminds me of the time I spent in Wyoming and of living in the small town of Rawlins out in the middle of nowhere in I-80.     Again another unforgettable stop along the way of my road trip in life.



And finally, by once again using only part of the sections of the block, along with a few additional blocks made this 36" square table topper.    The additional blocks used in the setting were the 4 corner blocks (small green squares, small pink triangles, and large background squares), the green square in the middle of the quilt, and the pink/green rail fence blocks.  Fabrics for this all came from my stash.   I've named this one, "Heartbeat of a Friend" and it is in honor of all those that I've been privileged to call my friend over the course of my life's "road trip".




I hope you've been inspired by the sample layouts that this block allows you to make.  And I hope that the different layouts inspire you to experiment with the block and come up with a layout that makes you think of your "road trip" and friends.

And now for the giveaways to celebrate my 5th block published, the first giveaway is for a copy of the magazine QuiltMaker's 100 Blocks, volume 16.   This will be mailed out from QuiltMaker.  To enter use the rafflecopter widget below.




And the second giveaway will have two winners - One person will win a lovely assortment including a 1 yard piece of a rose print, a FQ of the same print and three coordinates.   A second person will win a 4-FQ set of green prints from Benartex.  Enter through the rafflecopter widget below.






Gratitudes:
1. For all those that keep me inspired to keep on designing.

2. For the inspiration that comes from friends and all that I see and do along this road-trip we call life.

Moira, your first rafflecopter thingy doesn't have anywhere to enter...not sure if it downloaded properly!! The layouts...I like the first, hectic one (imagining how to quilt it is consuming me!) and the table runner. Totally cool block!! When I create a block, I use pencils, rulers and paper - one of these years I'll get a computer program to help me out!

Jodi - usairdoll said...

Congratulations on having your block included in Quiltmaker’s 100, Vol.16! Such a striking and bold block. I like all the layouts. Your block reminded me of lightening as well as Tazz, the cartoon character, hehe. I think I’d do some fussy cutting of Tazz in my quilt.

Awesome job!

I like the first layout the best. Seems to draw me in. Jmikebalou (at) aol (dot) com

Beth said...

I might make these in aqua and green, for a very peaceful feeling. Cute idea, using ekg strips as an inspiration--the "Wyoming" quilt kind of reminds me of that.

Beth said...

I think the table topper layout is my favorite; it reminds me of a starburst.

Allison said...

I am particular to fall colors so I think I'd use browns, rusts, golds, olive green to make the block.

Allison said...

I think I like Heartbeat of a Friend best. Beautiful!

kt said...

I love it in the red, white and blue that you show in your first layout--very striking!

Paige said...

Great block, Moria! I like your red and blue on white. Red and black on white would be nice too!

Paige said...

I really like the second layout forming the squares!

Susan said...

Love your idea of test blocks in red white and blue, with a wonderful project already in mind. My colors might be black and white with a strong color or colors for accents. But the pink and green one is really beautiful as well.

ledamewood said...

I like the first layout best. I'd make it in red, black, and white...the colors for the local college.

Joyce Carter said...

Awesome block Moira! Congratulations!
I think I would try it in pinks and greens since those are my favorite colors. Thank you for the giveaway.

VA said...

I like the block in red, white and blue! It would be fun to see how it looks in purple and hot pink with a black background.

Joyce Carter said...

I really like Heartbeat of a Friend. For some reason, it reminds me of a flower and I love flowers. Thank you for the giveaway.

Blue.Ridge.Girl {ShadowsoftheBlueRidge} said...

Wow - I love the inspiration behind your block!! Goes to show that you just never know where inspiration will come from. So many layout options, too! I have a block in Vol. 16, so no need to consider me for drawings...I just enjoy traveling the Road Rally and enjoying the stops!

Dana Gaffney said...

I like the navy and red that you used.

Dana Gaffney said...

I like the second layout and think they would make great frames for a center picture or some special quilting.

Barb Johnson said...

I really like the idea of making test blocks in RWB. We have a very active Quilts of Valor chapter in my area, so I could donate my test blocks instead of just having them pile up.

Nancy in IN said...

I think this block and quilt layout might be what I want for my thirteen year old granddaughter. I'm trying to find something I consider modern. Love. Now I have to do shopping for magazine.

Nancy in IN said...

Would love to have more fabric.
Thank you

Lorri Schuller said...

Enjoy all your blocks and ideas. Very Creative

Angie&Gary Short said...

I like the table runner layout the best. They are all so cool!!

Angie&Gary Short said...

I would use a dark blue and lighter blue!! Enjoy your day!!

Loris said...

Fun block, Moira! This would be a great QOV block!

Diane Frauchiger said...

I would use red and white which are Badger colors.

Diane Frauchiger said...

I might do the layout with large spaces and utilize some of my stash of Kaffe Fassett fabrics.

Martina said...

Oh probably blue and yellow? So many possibilities!

Karen in Breezy Point said...

Cool block! I think I would try black and gray fabrics.

Donna W said...

Red, white and blue would be my color choices

Donna W said...

I now live in a small town, but grew up in the suburbs of Chicago, and I really like the heartbeat version.

lalaluu said...

Would love to see it in green and yellow, like a forested road.

Laura said...

I'd do my block in blue and yellow.

Laura said...

I love the table runner layout. Would make a great gift for a medical person as it looks like a heart trace.

Pieced Brain Quilt Designs said...

Such a cool block, and full of possibilities! Do not enter me on the giveaway as I am also part of the Block Tour today!

desertskyquilts said...

Oh my gosh, are you kidding me? You want me to pick just one? Impossible. I was so impressed with how many different ways you used this block. Are you putting all those in one pattern for Craftsy? Because they are all fabulous and don't even necessarily look like the same block to start. I was interested in the prose of your post, too. So many things I didn't know about your inspiration for this design process! Thanks for the chance to win.

GranChris said...

Red and black with tone on tone white might be great.

Sandra said...

I like your explanation of this block representing busy cities with lots of buildings and traffic and the heartbeat of the cities is very active and busy. Just like my life. I like this block very much indeed. Thank you for being a part of the Rally Tour Blog and giving us this chance to become a winner. Happy Holidays.

I'd love to do some of these blocks in colors of autumn batiks. Thank you for showing so many ideas.

tac73 said...

I like the heartbeat of a friend. My dil is studying to become a nurse and it would be a lovely present.

Joanna said...

I would use burgundy and gold on a creamy background.

Joanna said...

I like Heartbeat of a Friend. The middle star makes it special.

Anonymous said...

Moria, Thanks for the great variations of your snazzy block, I really appreciate all of your different ideas. Kathy in (kinda windy ne)colo repzjratplainsdotnet

Nancy Sue said...

We have some cardiac nurses in the family, so I could see the heartbeat layout in Reds and pinks, even dark blue and black for the police logo colors. The changes in layout are so dramatic. I love it!!!!! Congrats!!!

Anonymous said...

Hi, I enjoyed looking thru your other blog entries and I would like to follow you. Kathy in colo repzjratplainsdotnet

Nancy Sue said...

I do like the layout of the one with 4 quadrants... I'd use black and yellow, like batman colors. The layout reminds me of the old 60's batman show where they would have "BAM" Kapow" in big letters. Would make a great lap quilt for my son!!

Danette Stankovich said...

I like the first layout where you commented about living in the big cities. It looks kind of like "fractured" to me. Thank you, peterstankovich@comcast.net

Pam McDonald said...

I have been to Rawlings! I lived in Julesburg Colorado way back...well that was a lot of years. lol
Love the block idea, thank you :)

Danette Stankovich said...

I think I would like to use Halloween colors, black and orange, for a Halloween tablerunner. Thank you, peterstankovich@comcast.net

Pam McDonald said...

The red white and blue are perfect for this block. Red white and black would be pretty as well. I love the straight layout, that looks like an EKG print out.

Cecilia said...

I like your idea of using red, blue, and white fabrics.

Cecilia said...

I like the table topper layout, it reminds me of a flower.

Pamela R said...

I would use the first setting for a teenage boys quilt with black & red or his favorite team colors. pjrquilter at msn dot com

Annie said...

I can decide which I like better of two of your examples. I like the Wyoming/Rawlins table runner because my daughter is in her first year of residency and I think it would be a fun gift for her. I would use reds and blacks on a white background. I also like the Heartbeat of a Friend table topper. The sentiment is lovely and the colors as you have them really appeal to my tastes!

Pamela R said...

Colorwise I often use black with some lie green & pink would be fun for a teenage girl quilt. For me I would go grey for softer tones.

MoeWest said...

I would make the block in white, lime and teal.

MoeWest said...

I like the layout for the table topper. It would make a nice gift.

Farm Quilter said...

Colors...mercy!! I've been on a teal, purple and gray kick lately so I need to change that up. Orange and lime green for the heartbeat and yellow for the background!! I don't like orange, not in love with yellow and I've never used lime green, but I want to try that combo...however, since I like to at least have some plan to actually use what I make, maybe a hot pink background with black and pale pink for the heartbeat. (Maybe even both and make it reversible!!)

Charl said...

Love your block. I'd make it in blues and greens.

Jayne said...

I would choose lime green and navy. It's got to be bright

Jayne said...

I like your original layout - it's just crazy

Nancy said...

I'd use purples and greens I think!

Lisa Marie said...

I would like to try this in aqua and royal blue on a yellow background.

Lisa Marie said...

I like the second layout with the open areas of white. I'm thinking about what kind of applique design would be good to feature in those spaces.

Susie'sfun2 said...

Wow! What an amazing block. I would like to do it in the 36" square table topper in red, white and blue. That's my fav!
Congratulations on getting in to the book.
Smiles, Sue

Havplenty said...

My color choices would gravitate to aqua, teal and navy in some fashion with low volume as the background prints.This block has a lot of energy and movement.

tushay3 (at) yahoo (dot) com

Havplenty said...

I like the table topper block layout. It has just enough movement for me.

tushay3 (at) yahoo (dot) com

Margaret Andrews said...

What an interesting block with all the many variations that can made with it...I like it. I am looking out at the sky at the moment and think that something like it, with blue, white and gray tones would make it perfect, a Southeastern Alaskan winter sky.

Joyful Quilter said...

I think the block would be striking in black and red on a gray background.

Joyful Quilter said...

I like your first design the best...definitely looks like a city heartbeat.

Lynne Stucke said...

VERY interesting block! I love the table runner . . . reminds me of an EKG! Love it!

rosemaryschild said...

Your block is very unusual & full of possibilities & variations! I would use my two favorite colors together - turquoise and brown! Delicious! Thank you for sharing, Susan

Susan Blumenshein said...

I love the secondary pattern your basic block makes! How unique.
jskbloomers@gmail.com

Linda Christianson said...

I love the Heartbeat of a Friend Table topper I could sure see it made by also adding the cancer ribbon to the center. So I would make it more in pinks or my cancer friend favorite colors. Like purple. But for the heart it would be more in shades of red and pinks.

Nancy Chappelle said...

teal, purple and black. I think it would make it pop!

Abigail Dolinger said...

I like the first layout. What a very neat block and great story to go along with it!

Kathy E. said...

My color choices would be blue and green to match our guest bed room. This block in a bed runner would be lovely!

wendy said...

Interesting block! I would probably use pastels.

Kathy E. said...

My favorite variation is the table runner/bed runner layout. The single "mountainous" line is striking and keeps the eye moving all along!

wendy said...

I like the last variation. It has a pretty pastel background.

Rachell said...

So unique! I like the Patriotic version! Such a cool way to do pinwheels!

Lee Ann L. said...

I think of fire and ice (orange and navy?) when I see this block. Don't ask me why because I have no clue.

dlk3265 @ gmail . com

JoyceLM said...

Crazy cool block - I love it. I'd make it in patriotic red/white/blue colors. Thanks.

Vicki H said...

I like the table topper layout.

Rachell said...

I like the table runner version, because it looks like EKG lines, which totally goes with your Heartbeat name. My husband is a paramedic, and I work in the ER as a registrar, so it would be fun to add that to a themed quilt for my husband. I also like Heart for a Friend, and would use more purple and aqua to it.
reillyr2(at)hotmail(dot)com

JoyceLM said...

I like the table runner layout the best - it's like a heart beat - pretty cool. Thanks.

Vicki H said...

I would use blues in my block.

Carrie P. said...

Very interesting block. Does strange things to my eyes in some of those settings.
I would use greens and browns.

Carrie P. said...

I like the "city" one. It is a neat design.

It is amazing how something as simple as an unusual garland decoration can become inspiration. I love how your block looks. Thank you for sharing your talents and for a chance to win.

jrt14 said...

I like the top heartbeat of the city layout the best. It has a fun and chaotic vibe to it.

teachpany said...

Great block. I love the Big City heartbeat layout. I wanted to see what happened as a secondary design, and I'm glad you mentioned the different colored blocks. Thanks.

teachpany said...

I think I would use 3 colors. I would keep white as background, and maybe black and red, or purple and pink. Thanks for the fun block.

Cathy Calloway said...

I think I’d make one in red, pink and white

Congratulations on your publish. I think to have your finger on the pulse of things is a wonderful thing. You truly are an educated person who values friends. I now have some wonderful friends. I like how it symbolizes the places and friends in your life. I think it can be taken even further to the pulse and importance of life. I love the block. Job well done. Thanks for the chances for the giveaways.

Material Girl said...

I,like the placement of blocks that looks like an EKG! Would do that one in red, black and white!

Material Girl said...

I love the electric look of the block when it forms a square. I would make it in black and yellow so it would SHOUT!

works4me said...

What a versatile block. Thank you for showing so many great variations. I love brights but I can see this in pastels for some reason. And my favourite version is definitely the table topper.

Rochelle aka Bella Quilts said...

I like your story of how you came to design this block. Your life sounds great and maybe a little insane!! But having friends that can inspire you in this way is wonderful

Rochelle aka Bella Quilts said...

Heartbeat of a friend is my favorite layout. But the long heartbeat scan above it is also very attractive too. Congratulations on having your block selected!

Carol Mina said...

Wow! You certainly have a nac for movement and inspiration with your block. Love it.

Anita said...

I like the first layout, because it is very Ziggy-Zaggy!

Anita said...

I would like to make the block in in charcoal, yellow and white.

sue said...

Red, definitely, and maybe bright yellow as the contrast. Mixing quilting and medicine appeals to me as I had a career in the medical field!

Amy said...

I would love to use this block in a row by row quilt. It would be in black, white and red.

Amy said...

I like the table runner layout the best. It reminds me on an EKG.

Annmarie Tegen said...

I suppose it should have red in it seeing as it's a heartbeat, but I'd like to see it done in pink & purple & teal.

Annmarie Tegen said...

I'm a nurse so I'm loving the real heartbeat layout on the table runner!

Debbie said...

I can see making a tablerunner with the blocks making the heartbeat Love it drhodes9@cox.net

That's a wild block!! I'd do a layout to calm it down a bit. The fabrics i'd use... maybe red and white.

I like "The Heartbeat of A Friend", meaningful.

Barb said...

What a unique block!! Thank you for the chance to win!

Judy1522 said...

I would probably use blue and purple with a white or black background fabric.

Judy1522 said...

I like the first layout as it really showcases the block and since I live in the howmtown of Nike headquarters reminds me of a runner (which I am not).

Pamela said...

I like Heartbeat with the read, white, and blue. Really sharp!

mangozz said...

I love your original design and especially the fact that you make all your samples in red, white and blue for quilts of valor.

mangozz said...

I like Heartbeat of the Cities because it is such a well balanced design.

minibea12 said...

I like the 'heartbeat' of the cities" layout. It makes the little pinwheel stand out.

Rosalind Gutierrez said...

Very creative Heartbeat block. I would use purple & Lime green to create the quilt.

Brenda E. said...

I love the table topper layout and would use blue and teal colors just because!

QuiltSwissy said...

Very interesting block that has some pretty cool modern possibilities! Thanks.

QuiltSwissy said...

Wow, I really love that straight line layout. I can see a heartbeat quilt in some modern bright solids.

~Kris~ said...

I would make the block in RW&B. I like to make quilts for returning soldiers, too. I also went to Purdue and got both my bachelor's and master's degrees there.

~Kris~ said...

I like the table runner design. It would make a nice border.

Anita Jackson @ Domestic Felicity said...

I really love the red / white / blue combination in Heartbeat of a Friend because it is so patriotic and gives length to those that are here with us still after service in wartime.

Katt 5343 said...

The block reminds me of an ECG. Not so sure I would like that on a table. Maybe with some purples/blues it would be more reminiscent of “purple mountains majesty”.

Cynthia Knapp said...

I believe I'd make the block using pink, purple and white. Some of my favorite combinations. Thanks for the inspiration. cknapp3626(at)sbcglobal(dot)net

Cynthia Knapp said...

My favorite layout is your first one that reminds you of the large cities you've lived in. I really like the secondary pattern it shows. Thanks for the inspiration. cknapp3626(at)sbcglobal(dot)net

Pamela said...

I love the versatility of the Heartbeat block! I would make it in green and purple. Thanks for sharing!

Pamela said...

My favorite layout is Heartbeat of a Friend, because the closed shape would highlight some intricate quilting inside. I also liked reading about your inspiration for it, and I would think about friends along my road as I made it. Thanks for sharing this.

Linda Dixon said...

Wow there are so many cool designs made with this block ; love it!

Linda Dixon said...

Wow love all the combinations!

Debbie P said...

Fun design! I liked the 2nd layout with the open space in the middle so that a focus fabric, applique or embroidery can be added. I also like the table runner because it is different and fresh.

Sandra Jantzi said...

I would use blues and green to make this block.

Joni said...

Your block has a lot of energy! I, too see a heartbeat (it's the nurse in me, I'm sure.) I think your design will incorporate nicely in my nephew's comic book themed quilt. Pow! Great block!

Tu-Na Quilts said...

Love the possibilities with this block. I'd make it in black and white with lime green.
