Fun-Size Quilts - A new book & A GIVEAWAY!!!

Phew! There's been so much excitement over here, I can hardly contain myself! But, today I don't have to :)
Today I am excited to announce the arrival of this adorable book, Fun-Size Quilts. I have been so excited for this book and if you've seen me talk to a group in the last year or so, this is the book I told y'all about.

Why is this book so much fun? Well, all of the quilts are small. As in they fit on a fat quarter small. But don't worry, there's a ton of projects from applique to paper piecing and everything in between. There's something for everyone! Hop on the mini quilt bandwagon with us and make your own fun-size quilt.
This is my little gem, Woven Stars. I couldn't wait to get working on this quilt and bust into my Civil War stash. Then to top it off, I hand quilted it with a bit of a modern vibe. But it's hand quilted... It's small, I figured I could handle it and get it done quickly. I'm thinking I need to make another one. Not sure which colors yet. I kept the pieces simple yet large enough so you wouldn't want to tear your hair out. That's not fun...

But let's get to the fun part. Did I mention that Martingale is hosting this blog hop and there's 16 eBook copies of Fun-Size Quilts up for grabs? Head on over to Martingale's blog to see the complete list of participants so you can head on over to each blog and enter to win. 

So how do you enter to win a copy here? It's simple. This book is called Fun-Size Quilts. What else comes fun-size? 

Tell me in a comment what your favorite fun-size candy is to enter for a chance to win an eBook copy of Fun-Size Quilts

Oh heck, I can't let Martingale have all the fun. I'll also throw in a signed copy of Fun-Size Quilts to one lucky winner :)

You have until Wednesday, July 30th to enter. Good luck!

  47. there is this incredible Australian licorice that comes in pink, yellow, aqua with black. As a matter of fact, the pieces might be a good concept for a quilt pattern. Never thought of that until now. Think I will lay them out on the table to see what happens. TY for offering a chance for a free book.

    ReplyDelete
  73. Candy, of course! Though I find "fun-size" candy to be less fun than the normal size.

    ReplyDelete
  74. Of course, fun sized candy bars come to mind first. cdahlgren at live dot com

    ReplyDelete
  75. Mounds. Can only find the small ones at Halloween time so I hoard for rest of year. Thks for giveaway. pjrcontest@msn.com

    ReplyDelete
  76. I like fun-size Kit Kats, especially if they are the dark chocolate ones!

    ReplyDelete
  77. Fun sized snickers- perfect snack while quilting - just be sure to wash your hands - no chocolate on a quilt !

    ReplyDelete
  78. Milky Way or the teeny boxes of Hot Tamales are my favorites!

    ReplyDelete
  79. I am partial to ANY kind of chocolate...but would grab an Almond Joy out of the mix as my first choice! :)

    ReplyDelete
  80. Not the biggest candy eater of all time but I discovered these Nestle Chunky bars at the dollar store. Now I seem to want them quite frequently but as would be my favorable luck, the dollar store often runs ot of them. I guess others love them to.

  81. Itty Bitty KitKat bars! >^,,^< LOVE your mini quilt!

    ReplyDelete
  82. I guess Heath bars are my favorite... tho I do consider Dove dark chocolate to be a food group!

    ReplyDelete
  83. Oh the difficulty to pick a favourite fun sized candy bar! Maybe a twix or a box of smarties!

    ReplyDelete
  84. My favorite fun size was Russel Stover's minis. One year a local store included those in the big halloween sale and of course after sampling to make sure it was 'acceptable' to give away I decided it was too good - those little hooligans would not appreciate the fine quality of this chocolate. Needless to say it stayed out of the bowl and became my special quilting treat. I found it paired quickly nicely with an aged merlot. :)

    ReplyDelete
  85. I really love stars!
    I consider Dove Promises to be fun size......but I love Hershey's Special Dark, and Twix and Kit Kat too. the darker the chocolate, the better! bite-size are the way to go, so I can open a wrapper and pop it in my mouth while I'm sewing.....no chocolate on my hands!

    ReplyDelete
  86. This is an easy one...Kit Kats! I really like your quilt too, but Kit Kats are better for eating than Quilts or Cats.

    ReplyDelete
  87. Snickers is always my favorite! I love this book it would be fun to do a quilt along. One mini a month don't you think? Love to win one especially one signed by you. Gotta tell the truth!

    ReplyDelete
  88. My favorite fun size candy is M&M's Thank you for a chance to win.
