This week marks the beginning of International Quilt Market in Houston. Several Quiltmaker staff members will attend to search for new designers and check out all that’s fresh in the quilting industry. Seems like a good time to have some giveaways for our readers!

A look at the trade show floor during International Quilt Market in Houston.

We always meet with book publishers to see what’s upcoming for quilters. So how about a few book giveaways? Check back often in the next few days for quick reviews of great new titles I think you’ll love. Each title reviewed will be given away so remember to leave a comment as instructed.

The following books are published by That Patchwork Place/Martingale & Co.

Make%20Your%20Bed Quilt Market Giveaway!

Make Your Bed by Leslee Evans takes a great concept and has fun with it. The subtitle says it best: Quilted bedrunners, pillows and more to suit your style! The idea is to dress up a bed and make it quilty with interesting pillows, shams and crosswise runners that follow a theme.

There’s something for everyone in the themes presented. You can choose anything from “Make Your Bed Sassy” to “Make Your Bed Serene.” Other themes are Charming, Classic Playful, Elegant, Natural, Cheerful and Earthy. So much fun!

B1062%20Pick%20Four Quilt Market Giveaway!

Another title with an interesting idea behind it is Pick Four by Sue Abrey. This quilter prefers to make quilts with fewer fabrics, and her book guides others to do the same. “Easy fabric choices for great quilts” sums it up well.

Quilting%20Those%20Flirty%20%2730s Quilt Market Giveaway!

Author Cynthia Tomaszewski puts a new twist on reproductions with Quilting Those Flirty ’30s. These are designs to hold your interest and expand your skills. There are lots of instructional pages—eight on Quiltmaking Basics and four more called Introduction to Applique.

And if all that is not enough, each of the 11 quilt patterns is accompanied by a tried-and-true family favorite cookie recipe from Cynthia. She even shares her best “Tips for Baking Great Cookies”!

You can read an earlier review of Fast, Fusible Flower Quilts. We’ll give this book away too, so you have four chances to win. Leave a comment by midnight Tuesday, Nov. 1 and we’ll pick a winner for each of these great titles from That Patchwork Place/Martingale & Co. Tell us what you’re currently sewing (or what you wish you were sewing!) for a chance to win.

  7. Gina says:

    I am working on a leaf quilt of varied size blocks, and quilting a fall quilt. I know it’s a little late, but I’m sort of afraid of quilting by machine. But the only way to learn is to do it over and over!

  8. Marilyn R says:

    I am getting ready to go away for three days with the girls, so I’m using my machine to make some blocks to take with to finish up. I also am sewing some pumpkins for Monday.

    We have a brand new granddaughter and I’m making her a quilt using Laurel Burch fabrics, to make it bright and eye catching for her; and a quilt for my daughter; and a quilt for our bed; and… after all, we’re quilters and having more than one project in the waiting is half the fun of quilting!

  15. Nancy says:

    I’m working on some purses for my nieces for Christmas presents!!

  26. Jacqueline Hanrahan says:

    It’s probably easier to say what I’m NOT working on at the moment. LOL
    On the cutting table at the moment are three BOM projects, Civil War Chronicals BOM, a Christmas BOM, and a facebook group BOM. This doesn’t count the monthly mini wall hangings that keep coming to the mailbox either. hehe
    In all honesty, I would say I have five projects in the works. UFO’s…well that’s a whole other story!!

  27. Jillian says:

    Thanks for the give away! I’m working on a miniature and learning to free motion quilt on a new-to-me sewing machine.

  28. Barb Johnson says:

    I am working on a couch quilt for Halloween. It is currently in 4 pieces on my livingroom floor. I will be quilting each piece, then joining it together because I don’t have the room to quilt a whole quilt, LOL! That’s why I think I would really like the projects in the “make your bed” book – they seem like they would be a good size for my sewing space.

  29. Shauna says:

    I’m working on a Halloween wall hanging (for my mom) that just MIGHT be done for next Halloween. If I’m lucky. :D

  30. Debbie Smith says:

    I’ve got more than project in the works than I can count. The one I’m hoping to finish before the end of October is my daughter’s quilt that she picked the pattern on 2 years ago.

    Great books. I’m working on a basket quilt from When the Wind Blows!

  34. Bonnie Novak says:

    I am trying to finish up Folk Art Stars hopefully by Xmas…but I have about 5 other projects in between!! I just love quilting!

  35. Bev Gunn says:

    Am finishing up a demin/homespun rag quilt that my granddaughter started over 5 years ago for a long gone boyfriend. It has been taking up room on a shelf long enough and I will give it to her brother for Christmas (he goes to college next year and I did not want him to take his good quilt!) Also been sewing together strips of shorter length to make keyboard borders for my mystery quilt from Quilter’s World. Have plenty of strips left over to make a stitch and flip scrap quilt which will go to kids with cancer camp. (I never work on one thing at a time-I have attention deficit disorder and tend to jump around alot!)

  36. Donna Amos says:

    New books are usually all good and the new patterns are much appreciated. As usual, I have multiple projects going on. Putting the binding on a Debbie Cafferty Mystery quilt called “Baubles and Beads”. Just finished the binding on a grandson’s red,white & Blue rail fence. Have a picnic quilt cut and partially pieced for a grand-daughter. Several Christmas projects going on, too. Never enough hours for quilting!

  37. Margo Reilly says:

    I find it easier to learn new things when I have a book to use as reference when I need to- that’s why books are great!!

  38. K B Parnell says:

    Always love new books!! Each one better than the last! They seem to give “new life” to “old” fabrics, and the ideas are so fresh!!

  39. Quiltin Kat says:

    Just finished moving in a new house and I am ready to finish the pet portrait that I started at the Sister’s (Oregon) Quilters Affair class in July!

  40. Beth says:

    I am working on a quilt for my grandson. Long over due. The quilt, not the grandson.

  41. grace says:

    That runner over the bed to dress it up is quite exciting and it looks quite contemporary with it’s solid colours. I would like to learn more about this and apply it to ideas I have been developing for table runners. The idea of using runners over a bed opens up a whole new avenue of application and is quite stirring my interest. I would love to learn more about this in particular, thank-you.

  42. Anita Daggett says:

    Wonderful looking books! They would look great on my book shelf AND open in my sewing room, being used to make quilts.

  43. Claudia says:

    I have a Quilt of Valor to quilt before the weekend is finished, and plan to start another that will be extra special. I just finished my Back to School project (posted at QCA) and a twin size from a kit. Just made out the Christmas to-do list. Hmmmm… I don’t need any sleep.

  44. Susan says:

    Right now I am working on a batik strip piecing quilt.

  45. Susan says:

    All the books look great! More quilting ideas, we are so lucky to have such an abundance of patterns & fabrics to choose from!

    Opps forgot to tell you I was working on a wall quilt

  49. Nicole Dixon says:

    I’m surrently sewing quilts for Christmas- three more to finish and I will have one for my kids and all of our nieces and nephews.

  50. Sarah Marshall says:

    I’m finishing up Christmas projects…a “vintage turnover” pattern for a niece, an off center diamond project for my sister, and a very large nine-patch pattern for my mom. The last is the bane of my existence!

  51. Lynn H says:

    I just finished a baby quilt as a gift and some pillowcases for our guild community service project.

  52. Sheila Holloway says:

    Wonderful books!! I am working on a King Size Quilt that I will use as my wedding quilt (the back will be the guest book!!!) !!!! I have 2 months to get it done! Along with Holiday gifts, wedding favors (machine embroidered bowling towels) and some charity quilts to finish up.

  53. Carla G says:

    What a great giveaway! I just finished sewing a pair of pants for my son that I was a pattern tester for. So, now it’s onto finishing my son’s pj’s. But I wish I was sewing my first quilt together… it’s been cut out forever just waiting for me to get back to it. :)

  54. wordygirl says:

    Right now I’m making Christmas stockings as part of the Stockings for Kids project organized by Lyanna of Purple Panda Quilts.

  55. Pat V. says:

    I am finishing up two preemie quilts and two doll quilts to donate. I’m also working on a full-size quilt for DD for Christmas and a baby quilt for my neighbor’s baby. I may actually get that one done before the baby arrives! I wish I was working on a wedding quilt for my friend who was married in July — I have the fabric and pattern, at least!

  56. Rachell R. says:

    Currently sewing Halloween costumes! Mine is done, a renaissance wench, with a custom corset from http://www.damseldress.com, and trying to cut out all the pieces for my son’s Winnie the Pooh costume.
    Tonight I went to our Elm Creek Block of the Month, from Sylvia’s Bridal Sampler by Jennifer Chiaverini, at my local Bernina store; we’re doing 12 blocks and embroidering them on the machines with holiday designs, We’re almost done! (But I decided to make mine a King-sized quilt, so I have a lot more to do!)

  57. Amanda T says:

    I’m piecing Grandmother’s Fan blocks, some Jewel Box blocks in green and white, 2 different applique quilts, and also quilting a cuddle quilt for a Christmas gift. The Quilting Those Flirty 30s book is appealing.

  58. Diana Wilsey Geer says:

    I’m currently binding a small BOM by Patchabilities, starting next months, finishing a USA flag rag throw, and learning machine embroidery and that part of my sewing machine! What I’d love to be doing is the cover quilt from “Make Your Bed”.

  59. Sharon says:

    I am very busy trying to keep up with the TQS 2011 BOM, Ruffled Roses.

  60. Rita Goshorn says:

    i’m doing hand applique on ‘garden of hope’ a breast cancer awareness quilt and cutting for larger applique quilt. nice books! like the ‘fast, fusible flower quilts’ very much. applique patterns seem to be few and far between.

  61. Carol C says:

    I am currently working on last year’s Bonnie Hunter Mystery quilt, Roll Roll Cotton Boll. I don’t think I’ll get it completed before this year’s starts, so I’ll probably have to sit out on this year’s. I like all quilting books and read them for inspiration and when I’m too busy to start a new quilt.

  62. Debbie says:

    I love quilts. My grandmother made quilts her whole life. I have collected quilting magazines, books, patterns, tools… My office/craft/sewing room is in great need of a makeover!

  63. Mary Lou Pape says:

    I am currently working on finishing a coin quilt. It’s my first quilt and the hardest part for me was picking out the colors. The Pick Four sounds like the perfect book for me. I really like the cover and the way she uses dark and light colors to make up the pattern.

  64. Wilma Searcy says:

    What an exciting giveaway! Maybe I’ll be lucky! I am working on a black, white and red queen-size quilt for my Christmas gift to my granddaughter. Also, other UFO’s include a Dear Jane (on-going), and a block of the month with Eleanor Burns.

  65. Patty Happel says:

    Workking on Christmas gifts…pot pincgers, table runners, apron, quilt…lots to do

  66. Anne Brown says:

    I am just putting the binding on 2 quilts. One is Glow happy, pattern by Monica Solorio-Snow, and the other is one I have designed for a male who actually likes the color purple! I have to sandwich another quilt using Bonnie Hunter’s Antique Tile pattern and one other that I can’t remember the name of. I really like ‘Quilting those flirty 30′s’ and love the chance to win…

  67. Cecilia says:

    All of these books look interesting. I am handquilting a queen sized quilt for my son and daughter-in-law, making 9 star blocks for a class, and 2 charity quilts. :-)

  68. Virginia Hendricks says:

    I have to admit, I wish I were sewing my parents Christmas present. I’ve had the fabric since April…

    Is that sad or what?

  69. Karen Gonzalez says:

    Right now I am working on three quilts.
    Two are for the National Adoption day, we will be celebrating Nov 18th, 2011.
    The third is a quilt is a fund raiser (to make more adoption quilts) that will be auctioned at our annual quilt fair on Feb 26, 2012.
    After these three are completed, I have one more auction quilt and then I can move on to Christmas sewing projects.
    Would always appreciate new ideas…Karencg

  70. Diantha Howard says:

    I have finished piecing the top of a twin-sized quilt a friend started. I have pinned the top to the batting and backing, but haven’t started the quilting yet. I am pretty new to quilting so it’s a bit intimidating.

  71. Sheryl Denton says:

    I’m deciding on a design for a new quilt – I’m anxious to cut into new fat quarter packs I recently received.

  72. Meredith says:

    I’m sewing a Christmas tree block for a block drawing at my next quilt guild meeting. I found a great pattern that used diamonds to make trees, and I’m adapting that idea for my block. I’ve never pieced with diamonds before and figured that starting on something small, like this single block, would be a good place to give it a try!

  73. Patti says:

    I’m working on several things right now, but am trying hard to get a fall tablerunner, designed by Patrick Lose, finished up.
