scrappy Sundays

Welcome to scrappy Sundays, a new series that Cheryl and I are going to be writing over the next several weeks to highlight our book Sunday Morning Quilts. We thought it would be fun to share some behind the scenes of writing the book, tell stories about some of the quilts and share alternate ideas that we've sewn up. We also plan to highlight the work that our awesome pattern testers did and more. At the end we will have a link up party where you can share your work and give your scrappy testimonials. We think it will be a lot of fun! Of course there will be prizes, too. 

We've started a flickr group where you can share photos of your quilts or projects that you made based on the book Sunday Morning Quilts. We want to see what you are making..and we want to see your scraps! Perhaps a pile of unsorted scraps to start with, then show off your organizational progress. We love seeing scraps in action!

We aren't making any promises, but if you have a question that you would like answered in regards to the book or the writing of the book, we will try to work that in, too. So ask away!

I am so excited! What an amazingly perfect way to post each Sunday. It will be like quilt comfort food. I already joined up your flickr group and posted my green slabs!

I also have a good sized stack of small triangle scraps and 2.5" random squares. Trying to decide what I may do with them. I'm considering the thought of scrappy/imperfectly shaped bowties with them.

Fabulous idea...I really enjoyed seeing some of the quilts in real life at Cheryl's book signing and I so enjoyed meeting Cheryl. I'm in complete scrap organization overdrive as we speak and also did a post on your book. It's wonderful.

I love the book! I can't wait to start working... first I have to sort my scraps!

I was pleased to find your book at my small town library. Its on hold for me right now and I hope to pick it up tomorrow. It was a surprize because my library doesn't have too many quilt books. So you really ARE famous now. LOL

Excited to see your post and Cheryl's. It was so great to see the quilts in person at market. I have the book, I have the scraps, I want to make everything in your book.

What a fun idea. I did "make my own fabric today." Used some scraps to make a piece of fabric to make something else with. You have inspired me.

I just tried to order your book on amazon but they are saying it won't be available until July/aug?? Haven't looked elsewhere yet but I will.

Margarida said...

This is a book I must buy. And your posts a must read :-)

Great idea, I'm off to flicker to have a look and try to join. I've just made my first box in red and given your wonderful book another plug.

Yippee! I love behind the scenes stories and getting to learn more about how you two collaborated.
