Scrap Quilting with Alex Anderson

Hi there peoples!!! As you know I'm a lucky duck when it comes to friends and having Alex Anderson as a friend is lucky for both me and you today !!  Alex has a new book out and it's fantastic.

Alex Anderson's Scrap Quilting
 
I love scrap quilts, and Alex helps you develop a strategy for fabric selection, design and construction. She offers advice on the process and she's got a handful of great projects to try your hand at.  Last but not least is a wonderful gallery of vintage and modern day scrap quilts for inspiration.   
 
 
Alex Anderson's Scrap Quilting
 
My personal favorite, today anyway, is Seeing Stars.  I love stars but what grabs me most about this is the little bits of  dots that appear here and there.  I would never have thought of that, but now I'm just nuts for it! Of course Alex being Alex she's given me two signed copies of Scrap Quilting to give away.. so please leave a comment for a chance to be entered to win!  And if you can't wait you can order one here, or even pick one up at Alden Lane at Quilting in the Garden
 
Ok, that's it for this week!  Happy weekending! xo
 
p.s. I'll draw a name next week, so remember to leave a comment!

I love scrap quilts and am always on the look out for great patterns that I can use some of my scraps to make. I have quite a collection of scraps because I can't seem to throw any out if they seem to be a usable size.

I love working with scraps and I do have a lot of them to work with so this book should be a great scrap buster and an excuse to buy more fabric, the plus side is that I love the cheerful Alex and her way of teaching that is so doable for any skill level.
