“Turnabout patchwork. Simple quilts with a twist” blog hop

Starting on Wednesday 30 January and until February 9, over 30 fantastic quilt designers and bloggers will feature one project from my book Turnabout patchwork.

Watch a preview of many of the different projects in the book. More photos to come over the next few days as my fellow quilters and bloggers review my book in their blogs and show their work.

Don’t miss out! Check the schedule below.

And don’t forget to come back often because there will be giveaways every day. The first one starting today!

In case you missed its release, Turnabout patchwork is all about playing with blocks – making a block, slicing it up, and turning or repositioning the pieces to make a completely different block (sometimes two smaller blocks) to yield endless quilt tops.

The book explores options for turning 6 blocks into a total of 23 quilt patterns. It’s a book born of what-ifs rather than one focused on achieving quilting perfection.

Giveaways!

To encourage you sticking with me for the next few days, I and my fellow blog hop quilters are hosting some giveaways.

Today’s Giveaway is CLOSED

So why not start today giving away one copy of my book in electronic format?

Just choose one of the 6 main quilts below and add a comment on why you selected it. I will do a draw at the end of the blog hop and inform the winner. Good luck!
