Can you believe January is almost over?? We’ll be diving into another fun Sugar Block in just a few days! I thought I’d celebrate wrapping up our first month of 2016 SBC fun with a GIVEAWAY! Not one, but two fabulous goodies up for grabs this week!
Giveaway Prize #1:
How about some gorgeous fabric?? I am just giddy about my Blogger’s Choice bundle up on Fat Quarter Shop this month…some of my favorite reds, blues, and greens from some of my favorite designers…Denyse Schmidt, Anna Maria Horner, Sweetwater, and more. Isn’t it just happy? I can’t wait to get mine and start cutting in to it. Fat Quarter Shop is generously offering one of these 12 pc bundles to one lucky reader here on my blog!
Giveaway Prize #2:
If you’re crazy about blocks, you’re doing to have a ball with my friend AnneMarie Chany’s beautiful new book, Sister Sampler Quilts (Fons & Porter/F+W; $19.99 http://www.sistersamplerquilts.com)
This book is based on a really fun idea that I think I just might get in the habit of myself- making 2 of each sampler block at a time. In the book, these blocks are “sisters” and go in the same sampler quilt for added cohesion, but made in different fabrics. I’m SO wish you on this AnneMarie- if you’re going to make a sampler block…figure out the instructions, cut out all the pieces, and put it together…why not just make two?! This way you get to see what the block looks like in 2 fabric options, and you can either make a bigger quilt, or make two quilts! The blocks in this Vice Versa sampler play with placing prints/background fabric in opposite spots. LOVE this idea! Same block- two completely different looks (and yet they match well).
I love this Box & Star Frame block! It’s been way too long since I’ve made a string style quilt and these blocks are making me feel like I want to make one!
This pair of blocks made me thing of the units that I’m always making in pairs- half square triangles for one, and quarter square triangles as yet. Two-at-a-time units would make the two-at-once blocks even quicker. (by the way, how cute is the polka dot backing and binding on that quilt!!!)
