Each Tuesday, I review a quilt product or try something new. I often host giveaways too….Make sure to stop over each Tuesday to check it out.
I am so excited that we have a new sponsor for “Try it on Tuesday”. It’s Kansas City Star Quilts Pickledish division. If you aren’t familiar with them, you will soon be after I do a few reviews of their books. They are the publishers of my favorite quilt designer Bonnie Hunter of Quiltville.com.
Pickledish sent me a copy of Bonnie’s newest book, String Fling” Scrappy, Happy and Loving It!
I think the book is wonderful. Patterns for a few of the quilts in the book were released before the book was published either as a mystery quilt or as a magazine installment. I have already made three quilts in the book.
Here is my version of Roll Roll Cotton Boll.
Here is my Orca Bay.
Here is my Jamestown Landing.
All three of these are in my top ten quilts that I have ever made. With all those amazing quilt designs, one might think that the rest of the book is “duds”….NOT TRUE! The rest of the book features more great quilts! In fact, I have already started sewing two of them….
This is Pineapple Crazy….It is the only paper pieced quilt in the book. Can you believe there are 224 blocks in the center and 60 more around the outside? 12,000 pieces in all….Amazing!
The other quilt I already started is Talking’ Turkey.
Other quilts from the book on my list to make are Pfefferneuse….
Santa Fe String Star…
There are a total of 13 quilts in the book! Someone once told me if she finds three quilts in a book that she really wants to make, then purchasing the book is a totally justified. I think it’s a good philosophy….so this is a quilt book I would definitely purchase because there are more than three quilts I want to make.
Being I already have a copy of the book, I am giving this copy away….Do you want to win it? You don’t need to follow me or like me on facebook (but you can), ….you don’t need to jump through a bunch of hoops. All you need to do is leave a comment telling me which is you favorite quilt from the book…easy right.
I’ll pick a winner next week. I’ll be back with a winner from last week’s giveaway tomorrow.
If you liked this book of Bonnie’s, I am sure you would like these as well.
I have all of them and honestly, if the house burned down tomorrow, these are the first four quilt books I would purchase!
