Oh, Scrap! Blog Hop and Giveaway

Today I am so very excited to share with you all a fantastic new book, Oh, Scrap! by my very good friend, Lissa Alexander !!  And let me just tell you, this book is incredible!!!  I can't stop adding to the list of  "to make" quilts from this!!!   And since they are all scrap quilts, and my scrap bins continue to overflow, I just might have to make them all (eventually ;)



You might know Lissa as Moda Lissa.   She is the head of Marketing at Moda Fabrics and is an amazing quilter!!!  This is her first stand alone book, but she has been the creative genius working behind the scenes on lots of compilation books, like the Moda All Star Books, and the Sweet Celebration book which just happened to be my first time being published in a book.   I am still so grateful that she sent me a little invite to be a part of that book as it really got me started on the publishing path.   Lissa has been a wonderful friend and mentor guiding me through a lot of this industry and giving me wonderful opportunities to share my work :)   I can not thank her enough for her friendship and guidance!!


Lissa has been working in the quilting industry for over 25 years and this book is like getting all of that scrappy quilting knowledge tied up with lots of pretty pictures and a bow on top :)  Seriously, it is amazing!!!  You will find so many wonderful tidbits of scrappy goodness that Lissa has picked up over the years and is now sharing in her own fun way.  Reading through the book truly feels like I am sitting at Lissa's kitchen table with a pile of scraps as we go through it and decide how best to use them.   Which, I would totally love to literally do someday!!! 


And as I said before, Oh, Scrap! is full of amazing scrap quilts and you will want to make every single one of them.    And now I am excited to finally get to share that I was so very blessed to have made one of the quilts in  Oh, Scrap! !!!  It's called Kismet and I just love it!!!   A long while back,  Lissa asked if I could take her Courthouse Steps block and make it up in my own color layout  to give it a new spin and of course, I couldn't say yes fast enough!!  


  I went to my scrap bins and instantly realized that I had an overflowing box of blues and greens and thought they would be perfect for a relaxing type feel.  I started cutting a string of blue in green from every piece of scrap in my bins.  This was such a fun trip down memory lane for me. I love that about scrap quilts, they really are a wonderful representation of so many other quilts and more importantly, the people those quilts were for ;)    And they also look pretty fun all laid out in a row ;)  


I had so much fun making up the Kismet blocks and they really went together fast as I just chain pieced each new row on all the blocks.   And before you knew it, Kistmet!!!  I can't say how happy I am with how this scrappy quilt came together and I am again, so grateful that Lissa asked me to be a small part of her incredible Oh, Scrap! book!!!   I will share lots more about this quilt later on, but for know, I want to get back to more quilts from Oh, Scrap!


I knew as soon as Oh, Scrap! arrived in my mailbox, that I totally needed to start another scrap project, but the hard part is, which quilt to start on???  They are all just so fun!!  I debated on starting with the cover quilt, called Izzy Squared with all of it's yummy squared goodness, or maybe even this gorgeous Sherbet Stars quilt as I am a big fan on Lone Stars and their super fun construction.  


But in the end, it had to be Lissa's Surrounded quilt.  In the intro to this quilt, Lissa wrote about how she found she always had leftover light-colored prints from her Moda precuts that are known as "low volume" fabrics that didn't quite fit in her planned color schemes.   So she challenged herself to create a low-volume quilt and Surround was the result.    


This intro spoke to me as I find I am in that same boat of not using my Low-Volume prints from my pre-cuts :)  I have another scrap drawer that I throw all of these bits and pieces in wondering what i will ever use them for.   Well, the bin was tossed on the cutting mat yesterday and I started cutting.   Another super helpful tidbit from the book, you don't have to cut a scrap quilt out all at once!!!!


I love that Lissa's includes what pieces you need just for each block so you can cut until you get a tired of it, and then pull out the pieces you need to make a block.     I love those oh so cute, 1" finished chain blocks, but with hundreds of them needed in a quilt, I am happy to cut as I go ;)  And another helpful tidbit, Lissa helps explain about value and how it can help you determine what is "low-volume" which I have always wondered about ;)    See what I mean, so many jewels of scrappy hints!!!


So I have 1 block done and lots to go, but I am just thrilled to be making this scrappy Surrounded quilt!!!  I plan to use all solids in the chains and make a serious dent in my "low-volume" bin.   It's not often I make a quilt this way, one block at a time I mean,  but I am super excited to really take this project slow and enjoy the scrappy process.


And that is a small taste of Oh, Scrap!   I can't say enough good about this book!!  It truly is scraptastic and I don't see it going on the shelf for a long time.  I think I will finish one scrappy project and then just choose another from it's pages ;)  



And if you haven't had a chance to check out Oh, Scrap!, you are in for a treat!!   One lucky reader is going to win their own e-book copy of Oh, Scrap!  Lissa and Martingale are giving away of Oh, Scrap! along each stop of this fun Blog Hop!

 All you have to do to have a chance to win is leave me a comment telling me your favorite scrappy quilt you have made or want to make!!

I will choose a winner on Saturday, the 24rd :)    Good luck to all!!

  18. My favorite scrap quilt was a snowball quilt that I made with binding leftovers from the comfort quilts our guild makes. Each snowball was like a 3 rail fence block, blunted at the corners. It was a bright, festive quilt and I hope it made some little person very happy.

  30. I teach quilt classes and one of my all time favorite classes I coined "BS or S" (Beg, Sneak or Steal). Everyone brought in their leftover fabric scraps and we put them into a community pile where everyone could shop for fabrics to make their scrappy string quilts. To get the creative juices flowing, I'd made up several mini-quilt samples. These scrappy mini-quilts are still my favorites today. djbcecil@gmail.com

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  64. I believe my favorite scrappy quilt is the one I'm working on now, on the side so to speak. It is a leader and ender mostly civil war scrappy quilt. It will have a beige neutral small size Irish chain running through it and I love it ~ my pieces are actually getting bigger. It will get finished someday as I make my other projects along with it!

    ReplyDelete
  65. My favorite scrappy quilt is my QAYG log cabin. I used only fabrics from other quilts I had made, favorite fabrics, so every block is so sentimental for me, and reminds me of the people I love, for whom I've quilted. I'm finishing it up now, and I love every moment I spend on it. I can't wait to snuggle under it, and see our nieces and nephews find their own fabrics in it. Now I"m making sure to save the fabrics from ongoing quilts so I can make another one of these, maybe in a different pattern (square in a square?) that I will love just as much.

    ReplyDelete
  66. Last year, I made my first scrap quilt - a Paddlewheel quilt, using Lynette Jensen's pattern. It was nice to use so many fabrics with connections from other projects. Your blue and green quilt is beautiful!

The PLUS is it doesn't show the dirt. Lovec your Kismet quilt. That one might have to be one I make from Lissa's great Book! Cutting as I go works best for me. Less chance for a Miscut along the way.

    and I enjoyed every bit of it, especially how it turned out! It was called Life-a-Plenty by Woolen Willow Designs. Would love to win a copy of Oh Scrap! Looks fabulous!

    ReplyDelete
  114. My favorite scrap quilt is a Scrappy Bargello (pattern by Bonnie Hunter). My husband needed a quilt for his bed at hunting camp so I grabbed bunches of leftover 2.5” strips and told him it might be ugly but it would keep him warm. Funny thing is it wasn’t ugly and we enjoyed seeing the varied fabrics used. I lost my husband unexpectedly three years ago so this now makes his quilt extra special to me.

  134. The favorite scrappy quilt I have made would have to be the one on my bed. It was a mystery from a local quilt shop. I used a lot of novelty fabrics and my children and I have spent many hours playing “I spy” with it. That is an ageless game that we will never tire of.

  179. Scrappy quilts are awesome, I don't have one particular favorite that I have done, which are many. But I do prefer working with the bright fabrics, instead of my older darker colors. Although I do have a neutral string quilt that I adore.
