SMALL SCRAP QUILTS BOOK GIVEAWAY

In an earlier post, I mentioned my latest quilt book editing project—a delightful title on small scrap quilts made with 1800s reproduction fabrics. The little treasures were all designed and made by scrap quilt extraordinaire, Tara Lynn Darr.


Good news! The book is hot off the press and will soon be arriving at your local quilt shops. In the meantime, I'm celebrating its arrival with a giveaway! If you're a small scrap quilt lover, this book is a must-have for your quilt book library. It's filled with fun projects like the following ones, plus 12 more designs that are perfect for those scrap bags of leftover bits and pieces from previous projects. In fact, MOST of the blocks can be made with 5" charm square or smaller pieces of fabric.



To enter this giveaway, just leave a comment on this post telling me what subject you'd most like to see in a future quilt book. Because many of my past giveaway entrants have been no-comment bloggers (meaning that there is no email associated with your comment, so I have no way to contact you), I will announce the winner on this blog and it will then be your responsibility to contact me with your mailing address. You do NOT have to be an official Google follower to enter this giveaway but I will give those of you who are an extra entry as my thank you for your support—to get your extra entry, just enter a separate comment telling me you are a follower. I need you to do that since I'll be choosing the winner via Random Generator. This giveaway ends on Saturday, April 5, at noon central time, and I will announce the winner later that day. The winner then will have until Monday at noon central time to contact me. Good luck to all who enter!

  26. I love, love this book. Tara's little quilts are always fun to make, and I love patterns that use lots of scraps.

  27. I'm a long time follower and I would like to see how you quilt your quilts. Machine or hand? Most patterns say quilt as desired, but I'd like to see some up close pictures. I'm trying to perfect my hand quilting, but it's slow going.

  28. Thank you so much for the giveaway! I think about every know aspect of quilting has been written on -- but I love scrap quilts, and would be happy to see another scrap quilt book appear!

  48. I love books featuring small quilts made from scraps or Civil War reproductions. I also love learning about pioneer times. So a book featuring any or all of those subjects would certainly get my attention.

    I have Tara's first book and made at least 5 of the patterns. Sew looking forward to her new one. From the photos you shared, it looks to be another winner.

    Thanks for the chance to win.
