New Book Giveaway

I have another book that has recently been released!  This one is published by Kansas City Star.  It is a collaborative book with 8 other designers from the rocky mountains.  It is called Springtime in the Rockies. 
All 15 of the projects have a spring theme.  I love the way they put the book together.  I am going to tell you all about it on our Blog Tour September 19-27.  We will, of course, be giving away free books at every stop!

But before then, Kansas City Star is giving away one of the books right now!  Here's the link to their website:
Comment on their blog post to win a free book!  There are also pictures of a lot of the quilts there as a fun preview!  Good luck!

Riley Blake Tutorial: Chevrons at Play

Today I have a tutorial posted at Riley Blake!  It's for a quilt called Chevrons at Play.

It's a simple quilt that uses the popular chevrons as background fabric.  This chevron fabric was a big hit at Spring Market.  I have seen it in a lot of purses and skirts and quilt backs.  I asked myself what could I do that is different than what I have seen.  That's when I thought about fussy cutting the chevrons so you can have a chevron quilt without piecing chevrons!  The rectangles in the piecing come from 10" squares.  It was a fun quilt to make.  Let me know what you think!
