Scrap-Basket Sensations Blog Tour Day 2

This giveway is now closed! No more entries please. The winner will be announced today!!! Let me ask you a few questions before I get started. How many of you "collect" jelly rolls? What about fabrics you just had to have and tossed into your stash?

Welcome to my blog. My name is Mary Flynn and I had the honor of making two quilts from Kim Brackett's latest book called, Scrap-Basket Sensations. I know first hand that this book is a MUST especially if you answered yes to the questions above.

This is Kim's second book. Her first book Scrap-Basket Surprises is a bestseller; both books can be found for purchase at Martingale & Company, Amazon, or ask for it at your local quilt shop.

There are 18 quilts all designed using 2.5" strips. Grab your jelly rolls or start cutting your own fabric stash into 2.5" strips! You want this book! (You might even win yourself a signed copy here!)

The two quilts I made in the book are called, Lake Cabin and Blessings from the Hollow.

Lake Cabin was made using lots of civil war-era reproduction prints. I loved how the sashing stars seemed to magically appear as I stitched the rows together.

Blessings from the Hollow was made with two jelly rolls of the same line of fabric. Kim's pieced border is my favorite part of this quilt.
I'd like to share a little secret that I think is unique about this book. There were three quilting bloggers who helped make the quilts for Kim's book. Did you notice the name "Blessings from the Hollow?" I love the personalization towards my blog and the same goes for the other two bloggers you will meet during your blog tour days. See if you can notice it or they may even mention it.

Scrap-Basket Sensation's pattern Town Square intrigued me because the look of the triangles in the corners of the blocks. I quickly made Town Square using the same fabric line as Kim's in the book; a variety of 2.5" strips would be pleasing too!

I'm now making the quilt called Scrap-Basket Paddle Wheel. (sorry photo turn!) The blocks for this quilt are fun, fast and easy to piece.

I grabbed my 2.5" strips and had four blocks pieced within an hour! They have become addicting to make. Seriously, I don't think I have ever whipped up an 11.5" block so quickly!

This book is perfect for all skill levels. The instructions are clear and concise right down to the little pressing direction arrows. Kim also shares with you how she sorts an stores her 2.5" strips and choosing fabrics for a project.
I thought it would be fun to ask Kim a few questions for the tour:
Me: How many more patterns have you designed that have not been published yet and will there be a third book to the series of Scrap-Basket books? If not, would you consider single patterns for purchase in the future?
Kim: There are lots more designs, but I haven't considered a third book yet, and at this tme, I'm not considering publishing individual patterns (although you know I'm an expert at changing my mind!). I do have a couple of designs that I intend to share on my blog (Magnolia Bay Quilts) as soon as I find time to make them.
Me: What is your favorite snack or drink to enjoy during quilt time?
Kim: Coffee! And sometimes Skittles (not as messy as chocolate).
Me: You work full-time and have published this second book; how do you juggle it all?
Kim: I'm definitely not a "juggler." The book would never have finished in time had it not been for wonderful friends helping with the quilts, and my helpful and patient husband. And you would be amazed by what you can accomplish when you give up housework!
A big thanks to Kim Brackett for spending countless hours on creating not one but two amazing Scrap-Basket books simply using 2.5" strips. She's a genius!
Now be sure to visit Stephanie at Loft Creations tomorrow for Day 3 of the Scrap-Basket Sensations Blog Tour and leave a comment here for a chance to win a signed copy! I plan to draw a name this coming Sunday afternoon. Good Luck! THIS GIVEWAY IS NOW CLOSED!

What a great new experience will be this book :-)))
Kind regards Gabi

I'd love to win the book and appreciate the possibility!

Thanks,Mary! (I popped in from Nichole's blog)

My favorite precut has been charm squares because I had several books. But I think it might now be jelly rolls because of this book. Love the quilts. Thanks for the chance to win in your giveaway.

Quilt Azubi said...

I've owned no Jelly Roll yet.
I start with the patch at first.

Kim is such an amazing designer. I don't think I've seen a quilt I haven't loved! I really like the way your version of Paddle wheel looks!

Impera_Magna said...

I find jelly rolls irresistible and often have to restrain myself when I come in contact with them... *lol* The last jelly roll I purchased was the A Morris Tapestry by Moda... have no idea what I'm going to do with it but this book certainly seems to have a LOT of good ideas!

Happy Cottage Quilter said...

What great patterns! I love Kim's first book, and am looking forward to seeing this new one. And I think I like her thinking about giving up housework ;-D

Quilty Conscience said...

I love the paddle wheel. Thanks for the chance

Laurie in Maine said...

I have never purchased jelly rolls, hunny buns, layer cakes, etc. Even FQs seem too expensive these days. Yardage seems a better value and I don't mind cutting my own.
Stash busting fabrics from the 90s - Scrap Basket Sensations looks to be filled with wonderful ideas to it be gone faster!

Peach Rainbow said...

I'd love this book :)
Thanks for the chance!

Stitched With Prayer said...

Hi Mary! I'm so glad to see you on this blog tour. The quilts you made for the book are so beautiful...of course I told you that before but it was worth saying again, LOL. I can't wait to see your finished Paddle Wheel quilt, that is one that would probably be at the top of my list but I haven't seen one yet that I didn't want to make. Kim has such a wonderful talent. Of course, so do all of you that helped her get the quilts made. Thanks to you all for sharing your time and talents with those of us that rely on others for patterns. Big Hugs comin your way...

Kim said...

Reality really set in when I saw your name in the book. I am so proud of you for your wonderful contribution that helped Kim bring this great book together. The quilts in this book certainly are designed to be fun and frustration free where piecing is concerned. Love the book signing blog tour! :-D

I am looking for ways to use up my scraps. Looks like a great book. I just got a Accuquilt Go Baby and am hoping to get the 2.5 inch strip die. That should make this quilts go faster.

I've got her first book and love those patterns. I like the patterns that I've seen for her second book also. And I like her idea of for-going housework to free up time for quilting.

What great friends all of you are! These quilts look as great as the ones from Kim's first book - I have made two from it.
I've only bought one jelly roll, but what I have done is cut 2.5 inch strips from lots of fabrics, and used those.
Really enjoyed your post, and seeing the lovely quilts that you have made!

Beautiful quilts. I'm anxious to see the book. I don't collect jelly rolls, but I do have lots and lots and lots of scraps.

I love Kim's 1st book. The quilt I made went together so easily it was a joy to make. Thank you for the chance to win a copy of her second book.

What a great book. If I don't win one, I will have to get one soon. Love all your quilts.

I don't know if I could every really get away with giving up housework, but it might be worth a try to be able to quilt more.

The book looks amazing and a must have for my library

Love these patterns. I don't purchase a lot of jelly rolls but have been cutting into my stash to use up some fabric and I have loved all of them that I have seen. Thanks they are fantastic.
