My friends at Martingale and Company sent me a new quilt book to review. It’s “Slash Your Stash: Scrap Quilts from McCall’s Quilting”. It’s a quilt book that would make an awesome addition to any quilter’s library.
There are sixteen projects in the book. The book features a variety of projects. This little wall hanging is a cutie…
There is a pattern for the matching table runner too.
I typically don’t do applique but the book has some projects that are tempting me to give applique a try. Here’s one….
I love look of the applique border along with the scalloped edge. I haven’t done a scalloped edge quilt before. It’s on my bucket list of quilting things to do.
The cover quilt features applique too.
This quilt was a little deceiving. At first glance I thought the quilt was entirely pieced. It’s not…the petals are actually appliqued onto the quilt after the block is pieced.
There’s a cute Halloween wall hanging that features applique too. Don’t fear if you don’t like applique. There are other projects in the book that are tempting. I love the blocks and colors of this quilt.
I love how the colors of this quilt blend…the large scale prints look wonderful.
I can totally see myself making this quilt. I’ve seen quilts that have a similar design before, but the colors on this one are perfect for me.
I often make quilts from recycled cotton shirts…This pattern would be PERFECT!!
One of my favorite things about this book is that the patterns cover so many different tastes in quilting. Here’s “Jack in the Pulpit” a quilt in darker more traditional colors.
I LOVE, LOVE, that one….This one tempted Kelli too.
The next one, “Apple Cider”, would be great made scrappy…
If you are someone who makes lots of gift or donation quilts, this quilt book is sure to meet the preferences of many…with applique projects, bright bold quilts and traditional quilts…plus some projects are big and some are small.
Most of the projects have a two photo layout showing the project laid out flat and one photo showing the project in a typical home.
As much as I love the quilt book, I am passing it on to one of you…All you need to do for a chance to win the book is to leave a comment telling which quilt of the ones I featured in the post is your favorite.
