Quilts for Scrap Lovers Blog Hop
Today is my day to share Quilts for Scrap Lovers on this blog hop! I met Judy for about 2 seconds at market in Salt Lake City this spring and was impressed by her enthusiasm and energy for all things quilting! She owns a quilt shop called Bungalow Quilting and Yarn in Wisconsin. And now she's come up with a fun method for tackling piles of scraps.
The basis for this book is to cut all those crazy shaped leftover scraps into three sizes of squares, 3 1/2", 4 1/2" and 5 1/2". Once you've tamed the scraps into these usuable sizes, she offers some really fun quilt designs to showcase those fabrics.
While I love each of her quilts, it's the other information in the book that really got me thinking. She offers some great advice on cutting, dealing with bias, design ideas, and placement suggestions that I found very interesting. I especially like her vision for incorporating older fabrics with newer ones to make them all sparkle!
For a list of all the stops and chances to win a copy of the book, go to the C&T blog.
I'll be choosing a winner from the comments below. To enter, simply leave a comment telling me the year you last made a scrap quilt (or plan to!) Once the winners are chosen, C&T will mail the books to US winners and eBooks to international winners. Thanks for playing along and good luck!
