Giveaway - Scrap Quilt Secrets


Yay! it's my turn on the Scrap Book Secrets blog hop. 

Scrap Quilt Secrets is the new book by Diane Knott of Butterfly Threads blog. Her blog is full of beautiful quilts and handy tips presented in a friendly cheery way. This book has very much the same happy and helpful vibe.


When I received my copy of the book to review I jotted down notes as I read.  As I re-read them to write this post I thought why not just share them with you as they are. So here goes - this is what I like about Scrap Quilt Secrets:

Clever S.C.R.A.P.S formula - different chapters based on Style, Contrast, Repetition, Accent colours, Palette and Selvedges

16 great quilts- all very different from each other using a wide range of techniques, different colour palettes  and a variety of styles from modern, folk, traditional. medallion, repetitive block quilts.

Great for both beginners or advanced. Each quilt has a skill level indicater but I think the patterns are so clearly explained step by step they would be easy for anyone. 

Lots of tips about using colour and choosing fabrics, and how to make scraps work. 

Lots of secrets for each technique, in fact there are clever tips all throughout the book

An excellent all round quilt making reference book. Very complete basics section including everything from design surfaces, different types of applique, to a section about adding fun labels to quilts

Very clear instructions, well laid out and easy to follow, Love the clear colour diagrams

Big full size template diagrams.

Colouring pages of each to copy and colour in. Brilliant! 


Now let's see some of the quilts...

Razzamatazz - a great way to use a multitude of even the smallest scraps

Tipsy Tac Toe - I know this looks like a black and white photo of a colourful but Diane has used black and white contrasting fabrics to create this wonderful effect.

 Detour - There's lots of tips on how to make this quilt really work without looking messy or confusing.

Oh My Stars - really shows how different fabric choices can change the look of a block to make an overall interesting and beautiful quilt.

Vintage Village - Who doesn't love a house quilt!

If I'd had more time to make one of the quilts from this book it would have been the cover quilt - Crazy Daisy. I would have used shades of blue and called it the Blue Mountain Crazy Daisy quilt.

  2. This book sounds wonderful! I'd love to learn some tips on choosing color, picking fabrics and making scraps work. I'm loving the Detour and Vintage Village quilts.

  6. I didn't know "Vintage Village" and I think it's a very Spring quilt !
    I love the fabrics and the colors...
    Thank you for this giveaway, and as an international quilter, I am playing for the e-copy !! :)
    Hugs from France !

  7. I really like Razzmatazz, but my favorite is the cover quilt. I love the combination of applique and piecing.

    ReplyDelete
  8. I haven't seen a quilt previewed that I don't like. They all look fabulous! Thanks for an opportunity to win a copy of Diane's book.

    ReplyDelete
  9. My fav is Razamatazz, but I also really like the log cabin quilt.

    ReplyDelete
  10. Thank you for this pretty preview Rachael. What an amazing assortment of scrappy quilts (my very favourite kind!). Razzamatazz shouts to me, but I wouldn't have the patience to make it. However Vintage Village looks just perfect for me :-)

    ReplyDelete
  11. Thanks for participating in this giveaway, Rachael. I love scrap quilts!This looks like a fabulous book. I'm with you, I would probably make the cover quilt.

    ReplyDelete
  12. After careful consideration, I think my favourite quilt is "Vintage Village". The houses are so cute and colourful, can see some of my stash fitting in that quilt very nicely.

  13. I enjoyed your notes! I love the cover of this book, though I think I'd be lazy and leave out the inner flower border if I were making the cover quilt (brilliant idea to make a Mountain Daisy version of it!). I also really like Vintage Village and Razzamatazz (though let's face it, there's no way I'd make Razzamatazz with all those little pieces. Plus curves. Not if I actually wanted a finished quilt one day!).

    ReplyDelete
  14. I like the Vintage Village.

  15. I like you prefer the cover quilt but only because it seems to be the most likely to be able to be made with scraps as daft as that may sound lol
    Detour is pretty wonderful too : )

    ReplyDelete
  16. I like the cover...the combination of the triangles & appliqué

    ReplyDelete
  17. This looks like a great book. Your notes were interesting. I always struggle with gettng the right scrappy mix. Sounds like she covers this in the book.

    ReplyDelete
  18. I like to have tips on fabrics that could be used to create effects. I think all quilt books should have examples of the fabric used BEFORE they cut it up! Now that may not work with really scrappy quilts, but having guidance on what color, tone, hue, pattern, style would be wonderful.

    thanks for the giveaway!

    ReplyDelete
  19. WWOW ! Such a great & generous giveaway !
    THANKS for giving us a chance of winning this beautiful book... Scrap quilts are my favorite, no doubt I'd find happiness with those patterns :))

    In stitches,

  20. This is my first visit to your blog, and it looks as though I will become a regular. This book looks to be a great resource. As a relatively 'young' quilter of only a couple of years, the information would be precious to me. I look at "Oh My Stars" and see a design that should lend itself to color experimentation. Thanks for the giveaway! bella.harriger@yahoo.com

    ReplyDelete

  33. You are so right --- what wonderful quilts! I think, because it is probably my favorite type of quilt, I would start with the log cabin quilt. I love the variety of fabrics. However, I am quite sure I would make some of the others as well.

    I do have the scraps....

    ReplyDelete
  118. I love using up my scraps and I love making Scrap Quilts so a book full of new ideas would be just up my street. I would love to win this Giveaway

    ReplyDelete
  119. I can understand you loving this book, it being so bright and cheerful. It is hard to pick a favourite, so I will say both Topsy Tac Toe as I've heaps of black and white fabrics and Detour, as I've never made a log cabin quilt and it uses a huge variety of scraps. Thanks for the opportunity to try for,the giveaway.

    ReplyDelete
  120. My very favourite would have to be the cover quilt- crazy daisy. It draws me in every time i see it. Thank you for hosting this blog hop.

    ReplyDelete
  121. I think Detour looks lovely. I love seeing all of these beautiful quilts.

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  126. It is hard to decide on one favorite. I'm choosing Detour. Log cabin quilts are always great to make as a leader quilt, the scraps really show up and lastly the log cabin quilt reminds of warmth and comfort on a cold night.

    ReplyDelete
  127. I'm thinking about that "Detour" or the "Crazy Daisy". Thank you for the opportunity to win.

    ReplyDelete
  128. Hi Rachael. I love black and white so I will say Tipsy tac toe. But I also love the house quilts. They are so colorful.

  130. Detour looks like something I'd like to make.
    Thank you for participating in this blog hop.

    ReplyDelete
  131. Razzamatazz is my favorite quilt because it has red in it! Also, lately I've been thinking about making a NY Beauty like this so it was validation when I saw the picture of it the first time.

    ReplyDelete
  132. I'm with you on the crazy daisy quilt, bit I'd add some tulips into the mix to make it my own.

    Love black and white quilts with a pop of colour also.

    ReplyDelete

  157. I've never finished a quilt with houses (yet), I'm sure that the vintage village would be the first one I'd want to make, or the cover quilt. Both are colorful and look like great fun to create. Thanks for participating in the giveaway.

  166. Razzamatazz - a great way to use a multitude of even the smallest scraps, if I had to choose one. I'm interested in learning her technique for the Detour quilt too. Thank you for the opportunity to win this great book mgailey623@gmail.com

  168. I am crazy about her Crazy Daisy quilt. And I know that the Oh My Stars quilt would make a wonderful gift for my college-bound niece.

  169. I could use some help on controlling the chaos in my scrap quilts. It looks like this would be a good book for doing that. I liked Detour the best. Thanks for the chance at your giveaway.

  170. They all look great and fun to make. But the description of Detour, "There's lots of tips on how to make this quilt really work without looking messy or confusing," is calling to me. Thanks so much for the chance!

  174. I enjoyed your blog! One thing I will enjoy about Diane's book is that she includes line drawings of all her quilts, so you can experiment with different color schemes by coloring with crayons, pencils, markers....This will be awesome! Wish more designers would include these in their books. Jspwarren at aol dot com

  181. Hello, Je ne vois que des belles choses présentées, ici, des chef d’œuvre de création, des univers colorés qui ne peuvent apporter que du bonheur , d'abord à ceux qui les ferons, et puis ensuite à ceux qui les recevrons.
    Il y a beaucoup à apprendre de ce monde, peuplé d'artistes si touchants, si doués.

    Amitiés.
