Scrap Quilt Secrets turns 1 year old!



I can hardly believe that this little book of mine has been published for exactly one year!


If you would like to read more about the process of publishing a book, you can go HERE.



If you would like to read more about how I totally freaked out when I first saw it, you can go HERE and HERE.


If you would like to buy your own autographed copy (PLEASE, PLEASE,PLEASE)  you can go HERE.


How else could we possibly celebrate this milestone? A give away of course! Leave a comment below telling me if you've ever made a scrap quilt (or an approximate guess at how many) and I'll choose a winner Sunday night. I am sorry, but I'll have to limit this to US only as the overseas shipping is insane.


Thanks for all of your amazing support over the past year! And thanks to all of you who have been so excited right along with me during the entire process!

  1. Hello! I just found you from another blogger's reading list. I only make scrap quilts during the last 35 years. I've lost track of how many I've made! I look forward to reading back through tour blog.

  5. I haven't really made a scrap quilt. I don't have a lot of scraps yet but I'm working on building up some. Your book would help when I do. Thanks for the giveaway. grinnie1961 at gmail dot com

  6. I have made too many scrap quilts to count. The more fabrics, the better.

  8. I love scrap quilts, I've been addicted to string piecing the last while, I'm so thrilled for you with the book, I'm sure it's not an easy task, especially while raising a family.

  10. I have made some scrap projects, but not a quilt yet. This book would be a perfect excuse!

  11. The thing that attracted me to quilts was the scrappy, make-do nature of the ones we had at home. Growing up, there was always a scrap bag that contained left over fabric and the remains of old clothes. All but a few of my quilts are scrappy. The cover of your book is killer. Thanks for the giveaway!

  14. I'm working on the Farmer's Wife's quilt using all my reproduction scraps. I'm also working on a "blue & white" quilt for a guild challenge using scraps.

    Thanks for the chance to win!! The book looks awesome.

  17. I think I am a little obsessed with scraps. 99 Percent of my quilts are scrap quilts and a lot of those are "charm" quilts. The more scraps I use, the more I create!

  18. Oh, and congratulations on your one year anniversary!!

  19. Most of my quilts are now at least scrappy looking, meaning I often slice a strip off fat quarters or yardage, to increase the variety. It's not that I don't have enough scraps, though. Congratulations on your anniversary. Is there another book in the works?

  21. I love scrap quilts! I am currently working on a scrappy Grandmother's Flower Garden. Last year I plowed through my Christmas fabric scraps and made a Christmas scrap quilt for each of our 6 grandchildren. Your border idea using 4 patch blocks and Drunkard's Path blocks is SO AWESOME! I am certain I would love this book. Congratulations on the one year publishing anniversary.

  22. I love scrap quilts but they still have to be high contrast for me. The muddied look just doesn't cut it. My favorite scrap quilt was given away as a wedding gift. I still miss some of those fabrics - silly, I know. Scrap quilts remind me of my family with all their hopes and dreams and mistakes and failures.

  23. Scrap quilts are my favorite so therefore most of the quilts that I make are scrappy. I just finished the binding on a scrappy string quilt. It is very bright and cheery. Congrats on your one year anniversary. tkmattson@hotmail.com

  24. Scrap quilts are my favorite. Unfortunately, my "scrap basket" never seems to go down, even after all the quilts I've made from it....it's a true mystery how that keeps happening :) Happy 1 year anniversary and thanks for the chance top win. sikkinktj at gmail dot com

  26. Hi Diane
    Tried to comment last night, but there were weird voices crashing in and then your blog became unresponsive. So here I am tonight. All seems well.
    Congratulations on your book anniversary. I love that quilt. Is it in your book? I rarely buy books anymore, but this looks like a must have.
    Mostly, probably 99.9% of the time, I do scrap quilts. I just like them. Have done hundreds of them. At present, I make lap quilts for our church ministry to the local hospital. Many. I love doing it. Thanks for the give away opportunity.
    Blessings.

  27. Congratulations to you! I think I've only made scrap quilts with the exception of two within the last five years. I would estimate that I've probably made about 15, many of which I've given away. Love the look and I think a quilt is way more interesting with many fabrics than one sewn from a fabric collection.

  28. I noticed that your book was a year old when I was skimming through my blog archives. We had fun last year with the blog hops! Congrats!! My copy still hasn't made it on the shelf, and instead is full of sticky notes and continues to be out on the table or counter for inspiration. :) Scrap quilts I've made...hmmmm....around a dozen. V:)
