New Giveaway: Surprising Designs from Traditional Quilt Blocks

The new giveaway is out!

SURPRISING DESIGNS
    FROM 
         TRADITIONAL QUILT BLOCKS
     by Carole M. Fure  (That Patchwork Place)


Take a block -- color it one way. Now add a second, a third and a fourth. And every one of the quilts made from these four designs will look different from the others!
     That's the charm of this unusual workbook/pattern book. It gives you a different perspective on some traditional designs...and your work will benefit from it.

     This book is out of print, and hard to find. We only have one copy left in inventory -- and we're giving it away, FREE. Just take a moment to comment on your favorite quilt block design...or tell us what you're working on right now.
     'Follow' this blog, or subscribe via e-mail, and mention that in another comment, for a bonus three entries, as well.

    Giveaway ends Sunday, Aug. 26 at midnight MST. Good luck!

Thanks for the chance! Currently I'm working on something I found in a book from the seventies. Its a quilt made out of squares you crochet borders on each one. I'm not the best at crocheting. I made one and it wasn't that great. I'm working on the second one and I love it.

One of my favorite quilt blocks is the log cabin block...with the pinwheel coming in a close second. At the moment I'm working on the 6th block in our Saturday Sampler block of the month series at our local quilt shop. I'd love to win the book.

I piece a lot of 9 patch blocks. I call them "sanity" blocks...when I just need to sew but have too much on my mind to think about difficult layouts....I have a bunch of sanity blocks ROFLOL

I thought this quite interesting... I teach students how to do this with watercolors, but have never had much success with crayons.  ...
