1, 2, 3 Quilt Giveaway

123-Quilt Cover

1, 2, 3 Quilt will be shipping soon! The official release date is September 10. You can pre-order online now or find the book in your local bookstore or favorite fabric shop very soon! You can flip through the images below to see all 24 projects from the book. Photos by Laura Malek.

The chapters are based on shape — squares, rectangles, triangles, hexagons, circles, flowers stars and diamonds. Within each chapter you’ll find two projects followed by a quilt to help you build your skills progressively. You’ll learn how to make flying geese (three ways), needle-turned appliqué flowers, English paper-pieced hexagons, freezer-paper circles, clamshells, and much more. I tried to cover as many quilting techniques as possible in the book, so that it’s useful for beginners as well as those of you who’ve been quilting for years. As you scroll through the photos above, you’ll see that the projects become more challenging as the shapes get more complex. So you’ll start with the basic square and finish with more complicated projects like foundation paper piecing and cathedral windows.

Want to win a copy of the book? Just browse through the projects and let me know what you’d most like to make. Leave a comment here by Tuesday, September 3 at midnight eastern and I’ll randomly choose THREE winners to receive a copy of 1, 2, 3 Quilt. This giveaway is open internationally.
