New Book Giveaway: Super Simple Strips

Is your scrap basket getting a little too full? Clear it out -- and give yourself some new quilts for decorating, selling and giving with our newest book giveaway:


SUPER SIMPLE STRIPS by Lynda Smith and Nancy Milligan
(Possibilities)


Eighteen quilts in glorious color -- full instructions and some templates. These patterns look harder to make than they are, too! I'm a particular fan of the way Lynda and Nancy mix applique with pieced patchwork...four of the quilts do this, and masterfully.

Because of the Memorial Day holiday, this giveaway is going to run a bit longer than usual. Which gives you plenty of time to make a comment below: what's your favorite quilt style, and which colors do you find yourself using over and over?
    If you 'follow' this blog, or get posts via e-mail, be sure to mention that in a separate comment -- it's worth THREE entries in this giveaway. (At least 2 people, maybe more, have won past giveaways because of this. It helps!)

Deadline is midnight on Sunday, June 3, and we'll randomly choose a winner on Monday the 4th. Good luck!

Hi! LouAnne here. I just subscribed to your posts via email. Super Simple Strips looks like something I need! I am downsizing my cotton stash by cutting strips off what I have and donating the rest to the Linus Project. I'm making up kits as I go along and sending some to my niece's group that are suitable for I Spy quilts which is their next project for the summer!

LouAnne, both your comments came through just fine -- no worries.

I subscribed to your posts via e-mail. I love all colors, but find myself using a bunch of beige or black for background contrast. I love art quilts!

I like to applique and enjoy it with pieced quilts just as much as I do alone...ok...almost as much! Would enjoy winning a copy of this book as scraps and I seem to be great friends.

Morning Cindy I find myself using mostly reproduction fabrics in civil war themes and I realized this about 6 months or so ago so I am trying to change it. Thanks for all you do for us stitchers and quilters.....

Thank you for your email posts. I'm new to blogging, but I'm starting to follow yours. Sometimes I sit down at the computer too long because I'm interested in the blog and later realize I could have finished a block or two on a quilt I'm currently working on. LOL

I am drawn to blues and yellows when picking out fabrics. I have to force myself sometimes to ignore them or else everything I make would be that color pallet. I like fresh vibrant fabrics as well as Batiks. I never found a Batik I didn't like.

Hi Cindy, I follow via email and think that your blog is FULL of interesting reads! I hop over to so many of your links that I haven't seen previously on news feeds. Thanks so much!

I tend to enjoy quilt alongs knowing that folks all over the country are sewing the exact same thing. I like simple modern style quilts but I'm also part of a Saturday Sampler quilt at our LQS...which means lots of small intricate pieces that end up making a very nice block. I guess I like just about any quilting except using the darker colors (civil war style) because I like bright and bold! Thanks for your giveaway.
