C&T is excited to announce our latest release, Beautiful Building Block Quilts, by Lisa Walton. Lisa Walton has been quilting for over 20 years, and her love of teaching has not only taken her all over the world, but also earned her the Jewel Pearce Patterson Scholarship for Quilting Teachers by the International Quilt Association in 2010. With her husband Peter, she started a business called Dyed & Gone to Heaven, which now produces a rainbow of fabric colors and styles. Start with an easy quilt block like the Four Patch or Flying Geese, stitch it up in several different sizes, then build your blocks into striking improvised quilts with up-to-the-minute style. The piecing couldn’t be easier, and the design possibilities are completely up to you (or Lisa, your choice!). This book includes eight complete step-by-step quilt projects, 4 bonus projects, plus a gallery to inspire even more possibilities. Lisa shares her ‘two ways to play’ which allows you to make quilts exactly like the ones in the book, or learn to improvise your own unique creations If you love to use solids, batiks, and hand-dyed fabrics then you will love to use this book to make these quilt designs sing! Giveaway! To win a copy of Beautiful Building Block Quilts by Lisa Walton, leave a comment to this post telling us if you like working with hand-dyed or batik fabrics!
