Quilter's Window Giveaway

My good friend, Denise from Quilter's Window is having a giveaway of Fat Quarter Winners book.  Make sure that you go to her blog and leave a comment.  She is giving you a week to leave a comment and next Wednesday, she will draw a winner.  The book is even signed by yours truely. 

The blog book tour continues today with Lisa from Stashmaster giving her tutorial.  Stop by her blog and see what she is showing.  I can't wait to see her quilt, Pinochle. 

Another one of my favorites in Fat Quarter Winners is Whist.  The quilt can be made using both of my rulers, the Fit to be Square and Fit to be Geese.  In the directions in the book I also give you the instructions to make the block using the traditional method.  This is a great quilt because you can use up all the fabric in a fat quarter bundle or from your stash.  I used the leftovers from the fat quarters for binding and the additional fat quarters for the backing.  It doesn't have a border on the quilt either so you don't need to worry about having yardage.  You can always add a border or two to make the quilt bigger, it's up to you. 


Have a great day and thanks for stopping by!

What a treat! I just wanted to drop a line here before heading over to the giveaway. I am loving this book. Thanks for all the sneak peaks!

Of all the pictures I've seen from the book so far I think this one is my favourite! For someone whose triangles seem slightly allergic to points, it looks quite tricky though, are there Y seams? I think all the tutorials may well tempt me to try it. Hope the book reaches the UK soon.
