Well, volume 2 is now available with 15 all-new original quilt project that are perfect for busting your fabric stash, and at the end of this post I'll share both how you could win a free copy of the book as well as how to receive a discount when purchasing it.
First, let me tell you about my quilt. I went about creating this quilt in a very different way from normal for me.
Usually, I start with a pattern or quilt design, then pick or purchase fabric to match it. Or, I start with a stack or a collection of fabric and then select or design a pattern to showcase them.
For Origami Garden, I started with a color scheme. I loved the combination of deep plum, teal, magenta, and charcoal gray, and realized that I had a lot of scraps in these colors left over from other projects. With a pile of scraps in hand, I set about designing a small block that didn't require any large swaths of fabric and could be made with decent-sized scraps.
I landed on a combination of a basic flying geese unit and a slight variation of a half-square triangle -- both approachable techniques for a beginner quilter -- and arranged them in such a way that the color placement, to me, resembled a folded paper flower.
A tulip, to be more precise. The blocks are laid out in a basic row and column format, but the varied arrangement and use of negative space via blocks of just the background print helps to 'scatter' the flowers across the quilt top.
I am extremely pleased with how it turned out. The other quilts in the book are equally impressive. When I first saw the list of contributors, I knew I had to bring my A-game. And everyone really stepped it up for this book. All of the designers are participating on this blog tour, so to see who else has quilts featured in the book and links to their blogs, simply scroll to the bottom of this post.
I've included the full list. The book is eye candy, pure and simple. So even if you're not a big scrap sewer and, by the way, each and every one of these quilts would look great in a more planned, purchased-fabric way as wellthe photography alone will provide heaps of color and pattern inspiration.
