Scrap Quilt Secrets Blog Hop and Book Giveaway


Today is my day on the blog hop to introduce you to my blogging friend, Diane Knott of Butterfly Threads QuiltingHer new book Scrap Quilt Secrets is an in depth book about scrap quilts and how to make them. The cover quilt immediately got my attention when I saw her book! Look at all those lovely scrappy half square triangles.
Diane breaks down into easy steps the way to make a stunning design using all those precious scraps you are saving for just the right quilt.


I liked the quilt in the book called "Fusion" and made this pillow using her secrets and quick techniques. It went together quickly and the instructions were clear and easy to follow.
One of the things Diane talks about in the book is contrast, something I always struggle with in quilting.


I enjoyed mixing it up and using lots of cherry reds in the pillow to make it scrappy. You could even fussy cut the center in this block, the ideas are endless!


To celebrate the release of her new book, Diane is giving you a chance to win a copy right here on my blog. To enter please leave me a comment and if you want answer the question, "how many scrap quilts have you made?" Be sure your email address is included or you will not be eligible to win. International winner will receive an E-book. I will be picking the winner on Monday April 4th.
Congratulations Diane on a lovely book!

  17. I need to learn about using contrasting fabrics too! I've made many scrappy projects, like sewing machine covers, potholders, mug rugs, but only one quilt. It's a baby quilt using scraps of Joel Dewberry fabrics left over from any project. It turned out very cool!

  21. I have made a total of ONE scrap quilt. I really enjoyed the controlled chaos of the quilt. It was made as a donation to charity. With my OCD I didn't really think going in that I would like the quilt, but when it was finished I had a really hard time letting it go!!

  89. I think scraps are lots more fun than yardage!

    ReplyDelete
  90. You like to ask the tough questions to make us earn the book, don't you? By my estimation, I have startd over a hundred quilts. How many of those are finished narrows this down a bit - okay maybe a lot. And of those, we are going to have to start thinking about the definition of scrap, right? There are some that use a bunch of fabrics and then there are some that just use a few but they don't match. Then there are some that match, but use leftovers from another project. So I'm going to make up a number, and you won't know the difference unless you come over and do an audit. Umm, 10. No, wait it can't be a whole number. 17. Yeah, and if you can't find them all in my house, those were the ones I gave away.

  110. At the very beginning of my quilting career (the mid-1990's) I used all-the-same fabric in blocks. I soon found out that that was very boring. Since then all my quilts are scrappy, multi-fabric quilts.

  111. I am a new quilter, I haven't made any yet.

    ReplyDelete
  113. Through my years of quilting, it's become obvious to me that my favorite quilts are the scrappy ones. My estimate is 30-35 scrappy quilts over the years. Most of my scrappy ones lately have been smaller, lap-sized quilts for my MIL's nursing home. My 9 or 10 large scrappy quilts were definitely favorites. Go Scraps! Thanks for the giveaway opportunity.

  114. Cute pillow. Love the colors, cherry red is my favorite. Many of my quilts are scrap quilts.

    ReplyDelete
  116. Seriously? You think I have kept track of how many scrap quilts I've made? If you count the minis I would take a stab and guess over 100. LOVE them! So fun to see this pattern sewn up in your choice of fabrics.....

    ReplyDelete
  117. couldn't begin to fathom a guess...been working with scraps as long as I have been quilting, which is now 38 years....homage to our ancestors and that yankee mantra....use it up, wear it out, make do or do without....

    ReplyDelete
  118. I can remember three big ones I have made but I am sure there are more out there . Looks like such a fun book.

    ReplyDelete
  119. I'm not ducking the question, but I really can't guess how many--even when I make a "planned" quilt, scraps sneak in there. My very favorite quilt is my scrappiest, made with bits of fabric from other "favorite" quilts, so that every piece is a sweet memory. I love that quilt so much, and now whenever I make a quilt, I tuck away a very distinctive scrap or two for the next "favorite" scrap quilt.

    ReplyDelete
  120. I LOVE working with scraps to create quilts so can not count how many I have made. Thanks for sharing.

  129. I make quilts for charity and I don't count them. Last year a friend who bought a long arm offered to quilt the tops I had so she could practice, there were 25 scrap quilts. My friends give me their scraps, I haven't cut into my stash fabrics for quite awhile. I've probably have made over four dozen scrap quilts and am working on three at this time. This book has so many great ideas, I'm looking forward to seeing it.

  136. I can't begin to count how many scrap quilts I have made. I'm over 60 and my Grandmother was part of the original scrap quilt generation. She taught me to quilt when I was a wee little thing. I do donate at least a dozen or more each year. Last year I donated 24. Life is good. Jmikebalou(at) aol dot com

  137. I can't even begin to guess how many scrap quilts I've made! A lot of them, maybe even most of my quilts! But I'm always willing to learn a new technique or two, so I'd love to get this book. It looks like a good resource!

  138. If my WIPs are included, the scrap quilt count would be in the dozens; finished ones, not so many (some are still waiting for just the right scraps). Thanks so much for posting the Sounds of Silence video; I love it. Because of that post, and the one before it with the Meridian block, I'm subscribing to your blog--you're interesting!

  139. too many to count! most of my quilts are "scrap" quilts, if that means using as many different fabrics of a single color as I have in my stash when I need color X.

  143. I love using scraps in my quilt or in bee exchange blocks, but I've only made one quilt entirely from scraps. I've got one more in progress, and I don't intend to stop there!

  155. I love scrap quilts, but am a beginner. I started my first quilt and didn't like the results. I am in the process of cutting it down to reshape. Still a little wonky, but am pressing forward. Would love to read this book to learn how to avoid mistakes in the future.

  174. Thank you for the opportunity to win this book. I love scrap quilts. It's very hard for me to make a quilt using just 4 or 5 fabrics. I've got to use LOTS. All shades of cream, yellow, white and tan are my backgrounds and then I grab COLOR from the stacks. Lots and lots of variety. Then the leftovers get cut up in usable sizes for the bins. I've been quilting like this for about 15 years and will never go back. Love my scraps

  176. I like working with scraps. Only my first two quilts tops I think were all planned with fabric purchases. The rest I grab different fabrics to represent a color. I need help with making the selections so things go together better.
    Oh I have also made a few from Quilts for Kids kits, they aren't here anymore so I don't really count them. Thank you for putting my name in the hat for the drawing!
