We talk a lot about scrap quilts here—we love them and it seems you do, too! We had a giveaway this week in celebration of the retiring 2011 Scrap Squad, and we’re sending three winners a variety of fabrics and some great books on scrap quilts.
Before I ship the books off, I wanted to tell you about them. All three are from Martingale & Company.
The first title is S is for Scraps: 18 Great Quilts by Gayle Bong. These quilts feature piecing techniques from easy to more challenging, great if you’d like to stretch yourself a bit. The color recipes are varied—it’s nice to have everything from traditional to serene to bright and happy—to help your imagination take flight. It’s also available as an e-book.
Lynn Roddy Brown is a 100 Blocks designer whose new title Patchwork-Play Quilts is a scrap lover’s delight. These are not just blocks set in rows! Lynn’s setting ideas are fun and fresh, and they make each quilt sing. The subtitle of “make the most of scraps, spare parts and leftovers” can’t help but get you excited about scrap quilts! Easy piecing, but the quilts are oh-so-interesting. It’s also available as an e-book, and there’s even freebie desktop wallpaper.
The Big Book of Patchwork: 50 Fabulous Quilts from Judy Hopkins is a treasury of patchwork ideas. It’s a great value (50 quilt patterns for $27.99) you might want to consider owning. Quilts in many sizes plus fast cutting and piecing techniques make it a great addition to your quilting library. Find the e-book option here.
The three winners were comments 158, 190 and 115. These books are on their way shortly, along with some miscellaneous fabrics you can put in your next scrap quilt.
