15 Minutes of PLAY BOOK TOUR!!

One of the first questions I often get, is: " Do I have a favorite quilt in the book?"  I think many know that I am obsessed with my process, and frankly, sometimes I am OVER the quilt by the time I know what it will look like...But still, I do have a favorite or two, precisely because of the journey the quilt took me on. I think the three quilts above, and this Crown of thrown quilt below ring high on my list of favs.
The Star Splitter,because it started the journey of making this book.
Flower's in Elda's Garden, because it is directly related to my grandmother's process and WHY and how I learned to quilt.
and the Makin' me crazy quilt, as it  blends when I do, and what my grandmother did.
 



Although this quilt, above, is my instant gratification to having a Grandmother's flower garden quilt FINISHED! Unlike the one in my closet that is 9 years old and unfinished! LOL! Looking at antique quilts, finding a new way to put your mark on them... PLAY! Inspiration is always there!

My goal for the book is to show you how my process and my inspiration is born; how to find your creative flow, keep it and let it SOAR! Giving you confidence to try new things, look at your fabrics in a different light, and build quilts that are unique to you!  Also, to provide you with OODLES of inspiration and eye candy to get your JOURNEY ready to create!  Building your TOOL BOX of techniques to make you a better quilter, each and every time you set about making a new quilt.

TRY SOMETHING NEW! I dare you!

So, would you like to win a copy of my book?

US winners receive a hard copy of the book
International winners receive a Electronic copy of the book, direct from C&T.

You may comment on each of the blogs until Dec 12th, 6 pm.
Make sure we can reach you by email! Be aware of your No reply comments...

Just tell me your favorite color and why!

I love "poison green". Not really sure why, except it is a funky color! I have been making bow tie blocks with it, and plan to eventually make a jubilee quilt with poison green as my background. Thanks for the chance to win a copy of your book. I love your use of wild fabrics and color combinations!

Mary Ann said...

I love green right now. Seems my fav color changes as I have grown up! LOL

Jitka Oherová, Czech Repubic said...

I love red and orange and I use it in every quilt. Thank you for chance to win a copy of your book.

Patchwork and Play said...

So many colours, my favourite changes with my mood! Today it's lipstick pink!

Gill said...

I love green - it's so fresh and energetic!

Heather said...

I love color but it is so hard to pick a favorite. Right now I am loving aqua!

Adele said...

Orange has always been a favorite and I'm so glad it is now much more accessible! Thanks for the chance.

Gene Black said...

Blue has always been my favorite color - these days I like it with the blue leaning toward green like a Caribbean ocean. Why? Blue *is* the color of the sea and sky. Maybe I am reaching for infinity.

cinzia said...

Yellow!! Since childhood, because it is always cheerful!!

Swedish Scrapper said...

My fave color changes sometimes, but more often than not, it's orange. The color energizes me, but not overly so, it is comtemplative too, like watching a fire. Thanks for the giveaway chance! lizzietillstrom at gmail dot com

Pat said...

My favorite color changes with the pattern I am sewing. But when I look in my closet at the clothes hanging there, I see a lot of brown, tan and orange.

Sewing In CT said...

My favorite color is Red - Deep red that you see in stained glass windows!

Sowing Stitches said...

Purple! When I was growing up outside my bedroom window was a tree that every spring filled my room with purple glow shadows from all the blooms on the tree. I never closed the curtains when the tree was in bloom.

Karen M said...

My favourite colour has always been blue, but I also love purple. I don't have a reason why! It just is.
Thankyou

ginaquilts said...

Red is tied with yellow right now for my favorite colors! They are happy colors that make me smile. Gina_quilts@yahoo.com

Ruth said...

Red has been my all time favorite color to wear but my favorite colors to work with change with the seasons and yellow is my favorite for quilting as it seems to work best for every seeason.

Laura said...

Green is my color. I like to garden, and love the variety of greens in my flower beds. Green means spring to me.

Jodi said...

Love the eggplant color because it's so vibrant, and, because I LOVE EGGPLANT!

tropicslady said...

I am really in a red mood these days, but normally I find myself purchasing mostly greens.

Can't wait to get my hands on your book!

Yvonne said...

Just browsing around, Shelia! Your quilts are fabulous. I'm a new quilter and really enjoying the browsing.

9patchnurse said...

This week it's a deep yellow, I think it's Kona Citrus. Last night I made 232 two inch HST's with it on one side. Today I'm gonna iron them and play a little.

giddy99 said...

My favorite can change with mood, but I'm currently crushing on Orange - it's warm and happy all the time.

Gunilla.B said...

My fave color used to be purple, but I am more and more interested in orange, such a vibrant color. I am sure interested of your book!
Gunilla in Sweden

Ellen said...

My favorite color(s)is a toss-up between black and red. Almost every project has one or both. I just love the contrast and spark they give.

creativedawn said...

My favorite color is purple! AND I never met a shade of purple that didn't have a useful purpose!!! Why? you ask. It seems that no matter the other colors in a scheme, my eye always gravitate to any purple therein. Purple is royal, playful, perfect blender, modern and just feels good....heeheehee!

By the by, your quilts are really inspiring and I must say it your grandmother's flower garden just opened up all types of possibilities in my mine and yes, perhaps a finished quilt. (shhhh! think I've a couple unfinished ones lurking in a closet somewhere!)

ElfenFilz said...

Hallo

patty a. said...

Turquoise, reds, intense yellow, oranges, lime green, sexy black, warm grays and taupes - how can I choose just one?!! I love them all! I have alway loved red so I will pick that color, but why? Red says "hello, look at me!" and always adds that punch.

regan said...

It's always been orange, because you just can't be sad looking at orange! It's so darned happy! :o)

ebwhite said...

My current favorites are the "low volume" colors. I am enjoying playing with the pale blues and light grays.

Aliceart said...

Red, red! It's the color of life, passion, romance...it brightens up anything you put it into. It can be classic or new, and it brightens my mood whenever I see it.
I can't wait to see your book.

Julianne said...

I love that deep eggplant purple..its so warm and comfy! I'd so love to win your book, I want it so bad!!

Katherine said...

My favorite color constantly changes.
today it's purple

Carol Sc said...

Yes, I'd love to win a copy of your book. My favorite color? I like them all, but green would be at the top of the list. I like all the shades that you find in nature and it plays well with all the others.

Deb said...

I love red right now. Maybe because Christmas is just around the corner.

Miss Nancy said...

My favorite color is yellow. To me it represents a bright sunny day showing the world in all its glory. Also, to me yellow is a catalyst for new growth and new life in the world. I also love oranges, reds, and teals - anything bright and cheery. Your book sounds most interesting and inspiring. Thank you for this great chance to win.

Have a super great sewing and stitching day!

Beth said...

My current favorite color to quilt with is a spicy orange. This is a huge change for me, as i used to detest orange. I'm not sure when I made the leap, and I'm hoping it is not solely because of orange's huge popularity, but it won me over and now I see its potential next to any other color.

audrey said...

Your book looks absolutely wonderful! My favorite color would have to be brown. I like to use it in almost every single quilt I make, even if just a small slice.:)

Miki Willa said...

I have been loving purple for a while now. I don't have much in my stash, but I hope to remedy that. Most of my purple right now is in my clothes. I am wanting to do a purple quilt soon.

55 said...

I've loved turquoise for years but have not used it in a quilt - yet!

Vicki B said...

I love blues. The cool crisp Christmas blues are my favorite.

Barb in Mi said...

Lately my favorite color is orange or Tangerine, just something that makes me smile. Have been following your quilt journey and love how you convey creativity to just about anybody. Thanks!

Jean(ie) said...

Lately my favorite color is orange. I don't wear it well, nor do I decorate with that color, but I love it so. It's such a happy color. Orange makes me smile. :-)

It's an emotional thing...

I would love to win a copy of your book. I can't wait to see the oodles of inspiration. Books are great "jumping off" points for me, creative wise.

Julie in WA said...

I love deep moody blues! I finally got a peek at your book on Saturday at the LQS; it is amazing and I must get a copy for myself!

Ellen said...

My current favorite color is orange. Or maybe it's purple. Hmm ... come to think of it, I think it's green. No, wait a sec, it's yellow. Oh, but just a moment ... it's definitely pink! All colors are happy colors and make me happy to work with them.

Jenny said...

i love orange...it always packs a punch.

Laura said...

I love any shade of blue. I have blue eyes, that seem to change depending on what I am wearing.

Mina said...

My favorite color is blue, but my current favorite quilt color is blood red. I just love the boldness of it!

Thanks for the giveaway!

Lynn said...

Although I rarely sew with it, I still have a love for purple. I remember loving purple since I was very young, but don't know why!

Mary on Lake Pulaski said...

My favorite color is aqua because it reminds me of warm ocean water.

liniecat said...

Green. It is the colr of my world. Living in south Florida my world is green, every shade all year long. I never realized that it was different until I went to college. So house plants became my answer--- the world is green.

Karillia said...

I love blue, always have. I like how each different shade gives a different feeling.

hiyacinth said...

I love blue--it's cool, and I live in a hot climate. It's beautiful--like the sky and the ocean. And it's soothing.

patricia said...

I used to tell everyone yellow because it's sunny and warm but really my favorite crayon was Burnt Sienna (now retired). Do you know how difficult it is to tell people your favorite color is brown?

Exuberant Color said...

My favorite color has always been yellow. It is a happy color, that's why! I would love to win your book!!

My favorite color is blue and always has been. I really can't say why, because I have always loved blue.

Your book will be inspiring! Thanks for the chance to win it.

Kathy said...

I love YELLOW. It is so bright and cheery and it is the color of a great big smiley face and sunshine. How can you not LOVE that!!!

Patty said...

My all time favorite color is green. But I have been collecting red & aqua for a new quilt.

Fibercrafter said...

Grey is my favorite color right now. It works so well as a calming strip with brights, I love to mix it with white, turquoise and navy with pops of red. Thanks for the chance.

Linda said...

Blue but I'm not sure why just always has been.

Kristin said...

My goodness I have to pick just one. Hmmm, it has always been blue, but I have leaned more toward purple lately. Thanks for the chance to win.

JOY said...

For quilting my favorite color is green. There is something calming about it.

Debbie said...

Would love a copy of your book. My favorite color is watermelon.

Unknown said...

My favorite color has always been blue because it's easy to live with and I never tire of it. I've grown to love every color, though, and I love the fabrics and colors you put together in your quilts--very inspirational!

Kathy in GA said...

My favorite color is coral...but I've got no idea why! Maybe because it isn't really pink and isn't really peach, even though I love them both as well.

Andrea S. said...

hard question! I would have to say yellow right now. I look for it to put in scrappy quilts right now. It's such a happy colour.

I love Purple. I am using a lot of it in the quilt I'm working n right now.

Jane said...

My fav color is red....it is so warm and inviting, hope I win

I'd love to win a copy of your book. I need permission to be free... with red

JaneB said...

I love red and almost never pass up a "good red" in the fabric store, but a close second is green of every shade. Your book looks amazing and if I don't win, its on my Christmas list, so Santa can bring it to me.

Jittina said...

I'm a blue girl. I don't know why, but I just love it. All shades of it.

Carla A Few Of My Favorite Things said...

I love red, but recently made a window sill runner out of green and purple to put under my african violets. I am slowing learning to let go and let things inspire me, and it is a great journey.

jirons42 said...

I have always been a red girl. Red just makes me smile. However, lime green is becoming a new favorite also.

Julie said...

Having to chose one color is tough, but I chose red. It is a passionate color and that describes my love of quilting.

Elizabeth said...

I have enjoyed your blog and would love to win a copy of your book. I may have to try some giant hexagons. You inspire me to play with my scraps to make lovely quilts to keep someone warm. Thank you for your inspiration.

Faith Kayajian said...

I love greens! All greens - they remind me of summer and flowers and the grass.

Shirley in Canada said...

Oh to get my creative flow going would be just wonderful!! Love your ideas and oh what busting of scraps can be done! Looking forward to the blog hop ... thank you!!!

Becky Clay said...

Sooo hard to pick my favorite, but....blue has always been the one. I have come to love greens because of all the new wonderful shades from the last few years, orange, because my youngest granddaughter loves it sooo much. Soo hard to choose just one and I see you use them all and they look so good together! Thanks for a chance for your new book and congrats on it!

45th Parallel Quilter said...

Love the concept and what I've seen so far ... even though black is not "technically" a color I love using it because it makes all other colors just pop. As an aside ... LOVE your jeans and the color ... looking great! Linda

Bev said...

Purple is my favorite color and I often use it as a "neutral" and mix it with other colors that most people would cringe at! Love the newer Halloween fabrics with the purple and orange color way and the Christmas prints with green, red and gold with the purple!

Beth in TN said...

My favorite colors currently are red and orange. I think I am drawn to them because of the poppies I used to grow that were so vivid in my garden.

Louisa said...

Your book looks like fun! Favourite colour? -- today, blue.

Tammy Liddell said...

Favorite color, RED, it seems to speak out to me above all the rest..

Teresa H in Indiana said...

brookemarie19 said...

This might make me a little boring, but I have to say my favorite color is brown. I have a hard time making anything without a little brown in it to calm the project and give something for the eyes to rest on.

judy crumpler said...

That's difficult as I luv all colors.Now I lean towards turquoise ......

mary e said...

always happy with PINK! love to have a copy of your wonderful book.

Suzanne said...

My favorite color is yellow -- why? it is just so cheering and warm. It makes me smile. I have painted my bedroom in a yellow -- and many of my quilts have some yellow in them. I would love to win a copy of your book. It sounds like just what I would need to keep my juices flowing!

Pattyjoe said...

I would have to say red. Everything needs a spark of red to liven it up. Pj

Sherry said...

My favorite color would have to be yellow.

I'm not sure why; except that seeing the color always makes me smile.

I've loved yellow since I was a kid (as evidenced by Easter pictures -- every year I was always in a yellow outfit of some kind!)

Sherri said...

Marilyn said...

I love your ideas! And I would love the book and the inspiration to create in new ways. I have experimented a little after seeing what Bonnie Hunter does with crumbs but your book takes it to a new level. I

judi said...

Bright RAINBOW is my favorite color. lol! I do try to make sure all my quilts have some yellow in them to make them happy.

Teri said...

Yellow is my favorite color......I don't know why......maybe it is because I'm a redhead and the color looks good on me....and my Mother always bought me a yellow dress for my birthday....or it just make me happy...it is a happy color.

Mary Ellen said...

My favorite color is turquoise. No, wait, it's orange, no maybe red-violet. I have to choose just one? Okay, orange.

akaber9598 said...

Just found your booik through the blog tour and I was immediately intrigued! My favorite color is turquoise because I live near the sea and find that color simutaneously soothing and vibrant.

Debbie said...

I love the idea of scrappy and getting it done. I too learned from my grandmother and would love to win a copy of your book-thanks for the chance!

Debbie said...

OOps-forgot to say my favorite color is blue!

Deb@asimplelifequilts said...

My favorite color for about the last decade is yellow. So bright & happy! Before that it was purple. Thanks for the give-away!

Kathy said...

I'm drawn to greens - color of trees and plants. Soothing and peaceful.

Debbie DePuy said...

My favorite color is a tough question. I love blue but every quilt has the color yellow in it. Even my room is painted yellow. Yellow seems to bring out the best in everything. I guess yellow is my favorite color because I couldn't live without it.

Lorraine said...

My favorite color would have to be anything red. It just gives me a happy feeling.

Gwen said...

Blue-because it can be cool and calm, even icy when paired with white, but plays well with hot colors like pink and orange as well. Thanks for the chance to win your book - the colors are a feast for the eyes!

Beth said...

I love color but orange and lime green are always at the top of the list!

Sewing Sue said...

My favorite color is green. Any shade, tone, tint or hue. When I sorted my quilting fabrics by color I had twice as many greens as anything else. Green is cool, soothing, and goes with absolutely everything. I am a green person.

Ally said...

Blues and greens are my favorite colors. They remind me of skies, water, grass all things in nature.

Nik said...

Chocolate brown - no explanation needed!

patty said...

Hey Victoria, Congratulations on your new book! Would love to win a copy of yor new book.

notqnot said...

Yellow is my favorite color, it has always been that since I was a kid. I think it is because of the sun. I live in a pretty cold country, and I appreciate the few days of heat we have during the year.

Jody said...

Everyone that shops at the quilt shop I work at knows my favorite color is green. Any and all variations--!! God made stems and leaves green cuz it goes with every color of flower.

teachpany said...

Purple, because it's so happy, vibrant and it soothes me. I love all the shades, too, from rich royal to pale lavender.

Patsy said...

It must be blue, aqua blue or turquoise, because i gravitate to that color when buying clothes.

Sue in Scottsdale, AZ said...

My favorite color is any shade of blue. I have always loved blue and always will.
sue @ asdfwordpro . com

Patricia said...

My favorite color is red with purple a close second. Why? because it is just so bright and happy

Virginia Severson said...

I love deep shades of red the most. I love red in nature and at Christmas time. All of my quilts have a bit of red in them too!

Beth Probasco said...

I love all reds. Right now my inspiration picture includes snow, swamp grass and red willows that grow in the swamp. Love how the red has that spark of color on a white and tan background.

Gloria said...

Red is my favorite color because it makes me happy. I always feel best when I have something red on. While I am quilting if there is red in that quilt i am more apt to focus and finish sooner.

maureen said...

Lately I'm finding myself drawn to bright jewel colors (definitely a break from the more traditional colors)
This book is just what I need to make my metamorphosis complete and try some modern quilting!!!

amyrdh said...

Pink! All shades.

Louise said...

I love most colors, but blue is my favorite. Most shades of it are soothing and serene, and dark blue is a good background.

Kaneki Kwilts said...

My favorite color has always been blue. However the hue and value has changed over the years from dark navy to sky blue to aqua most recently. It is cool and serene and makes my stress level go down. Hope to win the book!

HelenMarie said...

my favorite color... purple... it is just appealing to me... a blend of cooling blues and hot reds to form it's own unique temperature!

tesuque said...

As a hand-dyer, white is my favorite "color" because I can change it into whatever color I wish!

Marjorie Nath said...

I love the giant hexagon quilt. It looks like a fun quilt to make and to cuddle under.

JoAnn said...

Deep red is my favorite color. When I was a girl, I often was complimented when I wore that color. I have a large stash of red fabrics and love to use them in my scrap quilts. JoAnn

Amy said...

I love aqua blue. It's calming and happy at the same time.

Farm Quilter said...

Just one color? But then my other favorites would have their feelings hurt!! My all-the-time favorites are green and purple, current favorites pink and black. Used to hate orange but now my stash is filled with it! Greens and purples, I like them because they make me feel good! Thanks for the opportunity to win your fabulous book!!!

Nann said...

My favorite color is yellow. Sunshine bright!

But, truth to tell, I like all colors, and my stash and my quilts prove it.

And I'd LOVE to win a copy of your book!

Carla Bynum said...

Hi!!! I would love to win your book!!! Looks like lots of fun!!! My favorite color!?! I love all of them!!! Really do!!! Just what color hits me at the time!!! Orange and Seafoam Teal right at the moment!!! I know right now they are kind of popular!!! That is not why I like them though..it is just upped from peach and teal for many years!!! Thanks for the fun!!!! I am inspired just from what I have seen from the book so thanks for that!!!

Margaret said...

I love bright colors. The brighter the better. I have been told that almost every quilt I have made has lime green fabric in it somewhere. In looking at my pictures, I would have to agree.

Nancy said...

Orange is my favorite. It just makes things pop.

hehjude said...

Right now, my favourite colors are red and white. I'm working on a redwork quilt and a log cabin that also has red in it. I've just come from the brown stage and before that I was into a lot of green. So, as you can see, most colors please me especially since I've started quilting.

Nancy said...

Like you with your quilts, it's hard to choose a favorite. If pressed, I would say reds... and greens, especially the ones that lead toward blue. Thanks for offering a copy of your book.
Nancy from joy for grace

Nancy said...

P.S. I didn't tell you why I like those colors. Reds because they are bright, vibrant, and full of energy. I can't turn my back on red - I must do something. Greens because they remind of the beauties of nature.
Nancy (again) from joy for grace

Helen said...

Hi Victoria! Thanks for the opportunity to win a copy of your new book!

My favorite color is RED. Red makes me feel good...it's just a color that screams 'happy' to me. I love to wear red and I use it in most quilts...some it's just impossible in the piecing, but my label will always bear at least a bit of red!!

Congratulations on your book and your ability to inspire others!

Angeliasue said...

I like blue! I'd love to win a copy of your book. It really looks great. Thanks!

Karen Pryce said...

Blue is currently my favorite color, which changes according to the season. I like a winter blue sky on a sunny winter day.

Janice said...

Favorite colore is black because it makes most other colors pop.

Guilitta said...

I like to play with scraps. My favorite Colour is blue.

Greeting Guilitta from Germany

Donna W said...

The outdoors has so many shades of green, and I love all of them.

Would you believe my favorite color is black!! It seems that is all I wear but in quilting I do choose a variety of colors and if the pattern looks suitable to put in some black, then so be it.

I love using even the tiniest morsels of fabric, so of course I love pictures of quilts from your book that use 'crumb' piecing. Thanks for the opportunity to win a copy of the book.

Barb in MI said...

LOL, I forgot to tell you my favorite color... I guess it would be green - just because! And, I do love using yellow as a 'neutral.' But, the real truth is that I don't have a favorite... I just love color!

Jane said...

I love blue right now, seems like I am suddenly drawn to all shades!

Amy Losordo said...

Purple has always been my favorite color...I think it combines a sense of calm and passion in one color. I like it for all seasons. love the quilts featured in your book! Congratulations.

Marcia W. said...

Blue is my favorite color because it makes me feel calm and peaceful

Paula said...

I love yellow. I feel cheerful and happy when things are in yellow. Yellow provides artificial sunshine, and we do not have as much of the real stuff as I would like in Cleveland, OH.

Cecilia said...

I love red, because it is so vibrant and energetic. Your book looks like a lot of fun.

I've tried to play this 15 minute game, but some how my blocks don't really look the same or right to me. Maybe I need that huge design wall, mine is only small.
My favorite color is RED - probably because my grandma had a pair of red shoes once that I was just ga-ga over.... I think it goes with everything and every holiday!! Just ask me - LOL!

Red is my all time fav color. What is not to love? It comes in so many glorious shades and tones and can be soft or strong, and always makes you fell loved and protected. Just like a Mom or a soft, cozy quilt on a cold winter day. Thanks for the chance to win a copy of your book. I can hardly wait to take the challenge? Jackie

Great book preview. I'd love to win it because it goes along with Bonnie Hunter's concept of using these scraps up!! Hey, I'd be able to include a Grandmother's Flower Garden in my quilts completed if I did yours!! I'm SO inspired!! Thank you, Allison in Plano, TX

I love green and red.

Mary said...

Your book looks wonderful! My favorite color has always been red. I love to wear it and love to sew with it. It is so alive and goes with everything!

Sherill said...

Since my grandaughters entered my life, pink and purple are their and my favourites!
Congratulations on your book!

Roseann said...

My favorite color has been red ever since I was a little girl (and that has been, um, a few years ago now!)

I remember writing a poem about the color red when I was eight years old. I don't remember the entire poem, but here are the first two lines:

Red is a color so crisp and clear.
Red is the color of a cold, cold, ear.

I LOVE RED!!! :-)

If you look at my clothes, purple seems to be my favorite color, but lately in my quilts yellow has been a favorite because it brightens everything up!
I just made a quilt with crazy star centers that looks like it could have come out of your book. I would love to see more, as it seems "great minds think alike"!

Joan and Kevin said...

My favorite color is Aqua!
I love it because it is bright and happy! Thanks for the giveaway!

Bari B said...

I would have to say that purple is probably my favorite color, but then I also have to have other colors to spice it up...like orange, yellow or red!

Thanks for the chance to win a copy of your book!

Joan said...

Congratulations on your new book. I would pick orange as a favourite colour right now, it just grabs my attention.

Bunnie said...

I love scrappy, but if I must choose, it would be cheery yellow!

Becky said...

My favorite color is blue - any and all shades. The color blue seems to calm me and help me to focus:) Looking forward to reading and studying your book! Congrats!

Jodi - usairdoll said...

Beautiful quilts! Sounds like an amazing book. I love bright yellow because it makes me happy, kinda like the sun on a great spring day. It's not a color I can wesr, only look at, hehe.

Thank you for an awesome giveaway and a chance to win.

I have quilted off and on for years and have done very traditional quilt blocks. I have just recently become interested in modern quilts and trying new things. This book would help me learn new skills something that is always important to be doing











Lyn said...

Favorite single color - blue of all intensities. Oddly enough, I rarely use blues in my quilting. I like the scrappy look with a wide variety of colors in my quilts.

Jean said...

PUuuurrrrple, I love it because it still makes my mother craaaazy!

vwlady said...

Right now its evergreen...must be because of the holidays! Sensational quilts!

I think 15 min would help clean up the scrap piles.

Ms. Jan said...

This book looks like just what I need to utilize my scraps and my time well!

I love, love, love red -- I guess because it speaks loudly, and with joy!

audrey said...

My favorite color right now is red, in all its various shades! I love what it can do to a quilt. This book sounds so amazing! I would be absolutely thrilled to win such a great book!

My granddaughter Ivy and I quilt together - her favorite is purple - I lean more towards warm colors - I've generally got yellow. orange and/or red in most of my pieced tops, it adds a bit of heat, and boy people love it too.

Barbara @ Nähtante Quilts said...

My favourite colours for quilting are greens and aqua, I like the crispy freshness of the colours, and they shine so bright and fresh against white.

Anne said...

Love discovering you, your blog and your book. I've already got ideas brewing for next year by playing with my fabrics for a few minutes a day.

Weekender Girl said...

Right now, my favorite color is royal blue and green. Mostly because I took my son to the zoo and we saw peacocks. I was astounded by the mixing of the blue and green on the peacock (as well as the pattern.

Sharon said...

Right now my favorite color is orange and I've been looking for ways to bring it in my house. It's just bright and playful and makes me smile whenever i see it!
