The Quilter's Bible Book... GIVEAWAY!!

Hello Everyone,

Wait until you see this book! I was asked to do a review of this fabulous book. If you are an advanced quilter, beginning quilter, or just thinking about quilting, this is a wonderful resource to have in your quilting library.


It is jam packed with information from how to get started, cutting, piecing, applique, quilting, binding, nothing is left out.


The book is loaded with different options for different techniques and is extremely well written and laid out. No stone is left unturned.


I even learned about Kantha quilting. Do you know what that is???

The publishers also wanted to give you, my readers, a peek at one of the projects in the book, the Daisy Cot Quilt.


A wonderful little quilt that you can size to whatever suits your needs.


Cute little daisies appliqued on the quilt. Great for a baby. The pattern is below for you to use for free!!


Daisy Cot Quilt
By Linda Clements,
Author of The Quilter's Bible

This little quilt uses fusible web appliquéd flowers on a background of pieced squares. Fresh, contemporary fabrics have been used but the design would suit any style and colors and could be sacaled up to any size.

Profile

Skilled Practised: Piecing squares; fusible web appliqué; blanket stitch edging; straight borders; machine and hand quilting; binding
Quilt layout: 5 x 3 appliqué squares with two borders
Finished size: 46in x 30in (117cm x 76cm)
Fabrics: Fifteen 81/2 in squares for appliqués; white border fabric 2in wide x 140in; print fabric 21/2 in wide x 155in; backing fabric; wadding (batting); binding 21/2in wide
Threads: Anchor perle cotton multicolor 1304; stranded cottons in mid green and cream and machine threads
    Method
    Detailed instructions are found in The Quilter's Bible for stichings, borders, making a quilt sandwich, and bindings.
    • Piece together the 81⁄2 in (21.6cm) white and cream squares in a 5 x 3 layout.
    • Using the daisy template (enlarged) and fusible web, appliqué a daisy in each square. Edge the daisies with blanket stitch using one strand of perle cotton.
    • Embroider flower centres with a circle of whipped running stitch in three strands of green stranded cotton, whipped with cream.
    • Add the borders. Make a quilt sandwich. Machine quilt in the ditch between the squares and across flower petals. Hand quilt a loop pattern in the borders using variegated thread.
    • Bind the quilt to finish.

    I must have this for my library because I'm a book-a-holic! I love using them as references, inspiration and just plain old eye candy. This one looks really useful as well as pretty.

    LisaT said...

    Good morning. The book looks like a great reference, and well, because we can't know everything I'm sure we can learn something new. Im not the worlds best quilter... only ever do fusible applique and would love to learn needle turn. Also would love to work on free motion quilting. And no, never heard of Kantha quilting before. Thanks!

    Elisa Black said...

    Thanks for the giveaway opportunity, Jackie! This book looks like an excellent resource for a beginning quilter like me. I have a small (but treasured) quilting book collection, and this book would be an essential, comprehensive reference that would be well-used (and browsed just for fun, too).

    Linda said...

    That looks like a great book for any quilter to have on hand! Thanks for the chance to win!

    Mimi said...

    I don't have a quilting bible in my library... so when I need to get 'help' with a technique I am going through at least 4 books to find instructions! Sure would be nice to have to only check one! Thanks for the chance!

    Sarita said...

    Thanks for the free pattern! I could use a boost to my sewing, this book would be perfect.

    Jodi-JoJoMia's Place said...

    I love all quilting books! I have a bunch but I really need this one too. I can just spend an evening looking through all my books.

    Denise in PA said...

    Looks like a terrific book! I would love to have a resource book such as this because even though I've been quilting for a long time, I'm always looking to learn something new (in fact just did a week ago - from a much younger quilter!). I have a couple of resource books I consult often but they're a little dated now (from the early 90s. Thanks so much!

    Kathryn said...

    I have a daughter who is expressing interest in quilting, and this would be a good birthday gift for her quilting library. Kathie L in Allentown

    I love collecting quilting resources and it sounds like this book would be a great one.

    Victoria @ BUMBLE BEANS said...

    Always something to LEARN! that's why I'd love to win! and really honestly, it's better to WIN than spend. i'd rather SPEND in your FABRIC SALE... I'm off to see what other goodies I may need... LOL!

    audreypawdrey said...

    Sandie ~call me crazy said...

    Looks like a fabulous book! Thanks for the chance! :-) Have a happy weekend!

    MJinMichigan said...

    After over 30 years of quilting I have way too many quilt books so add to the collection very carefully now. This looks like it would be a great addition and one I one use frequently so please add me to the drawing.

    Lisa Marie said...

    This would be a good addition to my library because it would be nice to have a single reference book I could turn to any time I needed to look something up. Even so, if I won, I would give the book to a friend of mine who is now starting her third quilt because she doesn't have any books to refer to yet and I think it would be more valuable to her.

    Merete said...

    This would be a great gift for my sister whi has just started quilting.

    Elisa said...

    OOH! Need this book! Can't taunt me about Kantha quilting and leave me hanging!

    Peaceful Piecer said...

    Looks like a great book...thanks for a chance to win

    Tine said...

    I think this book would be perfect for me, because here in Copenhagen, Denmark, there reaally aren't a lot of quilt shops (I only know of 1), and hardly any classes....so I have to figure out how to do things by myself - either by reading magazines, books, blogs or ask some of my online quilting buddies.
    This book would be such an awesome place to look for help for me ;)

    Diane H said...

    Thanks so much for a chance to add this wonderful reference book to my 'library'. I'm forever scrambling for how-to's when quilting and this book would be very helpful.

    Elzaan said...

    One can never have enough references, pattern ideas and general quilting information, as it is always growing and changing. This will be a awesome addition to my (currently very small) library.
    Thank you Jackie and Linda, for this opportunity.
    Elzaan

    Fiesta said...

    Jackie, I am always open to learning new things so this book would make a great addition to my library. Thank you for the chance to win and Happy Easter.

    Kantha Quilting? I've never heard of it. I have to know more. The pictures on that page are intriguing. Thanks for all the work you do on this blog and the inspiring things you show us.

    Jean said...

    This looks like a great resource for all quilting questions!I'm sure I could use this to refer to with classes I teach. Thanks for the chance to win!

    Since you don't mention it, I assume that this giveaway is also for international readers of your blog :) I'd love to have one basic intsruction book that would include all basic knowledge about quilting, and sofar I haven't managed to find a satisfactory one. This one sounds like it!

    Donna~~ said...

    Looks like a wonderful book! And like it would be a great help to me since my memory isn't as great as it should be anymore--it would be nice having a quick place to double check how something should be done!

    LT said...

    Thanks Jackie for such a wonderful giveaway. It would make a great addition to my library because as a beginning quilter I need all the help I can get!

    JoyceM said...

    I would love to have this book. I guess I'm an experienced beginner quilter, at least with traditional piecing. So it sounds like this book would really help me improve my skills. Thanks for the giveaway.

    WoolenSails said...

    It is nice to have a book that you can go to for reference for techniques. Most of the books I have like this are so old that I am due for a new one which would have the newest products too.

    Debbie

    Linda said...

    Hi Jackie, great looking book, filled with all sorts of wonderful information and instructions.

    NorthernStar said...

    I'd love a copy of this book. It looks like it's full of eye candy I can drool over during my exam stress x x x

    quiltma said...

    I would love to win this book. I am an experienced quilter BUT I can always learn. I also run into situations where I do need to find information on how to do something or an alternative way to do it. It would be so nice to have a book like this where most everything is in 1 book.

    Mary on Lake Pulaski said...

    I want this book because I have two new grandchildren and one more on the way so I am always looking for new quilts to make for them!

    YankeeQuilter said...

    Looks like a wonderful reference book! Mine are all looking a bit dogeared so it may be time for an update!

    Nancy H, http://gomomma.wordpress.com/ said...

    I loan books to my customers so they can learn techniques & they often have nice small projects in them. The free pattern would make a great lap throw, wallhanging or baby quilt!

    Regina said...

    This would be a great reference as I try to learn/do things i see others doing online without the benefit of in-person instruction.

    Julie said...

    This looks like a great book -- everything you need to know in one book instead of looking through a bunch of books. It would be great to win this. Thanks for the give away.

    Miss 376 said...

    Sara said...

    The colors in the Daisy Dot quilt are stunning! I think I need this book so I can be more creative in my choices for quilt tops:)

    Margaret said...

    Stephany said...

    I need this SO badly! I am always so afraid to try new techniques, I get stuck in a rut pretty easily! Thank you!

    VickiT said...

    What a great looking book. I think this would be an amazing thing to add to my books and one that would be the 'go to' for all things quilting from the looks of it. I am relatively new to quilting so I am positive it would be a great thing for me to own. Thanks so much for the chance to win this book.

    Staci said...

    Thank you for giving away this lovely book. I love learning new ways to do things. That is one of my favorite things about quilting, there are so many *right* ways to do things. It is wonderful to discover a new technique that works for you, the kind of thing where you smack your forehead and say, "Why didn't I ever think of doing that!" No matter how long we've quilted, there is always something new to learn.

    Lynne said...

    I am a new quilter and have so much to learn. This book would be amazing to have in my library. Thanks for the chance to win. lynnegibson32@gmail.com

    Want to win the book? Are you kidding! I'm drooling just looking at the few pages that show layouts of quilts! If am lucky enough to win this book I'm going through my scrap stash to creat a border shown in one of the pictures and then spashing daisies all over the patchwork, spilling into the borders! Yes, I most definately would benefit from this book...but it won't spend much time on the bookshelf!

    Sincerely, Sara said...

    I am really getting into learning about quilting. I'm dreaming about my first quilt these days and realize how much I still have to learn about this amazing art form. I'm so excited to make one someday and would love some more knowledge on the subject. This book would be a welcome edition on that front!

    Victoria said...

    I need to have this book because I have to make eight teacher quilts before the end of the school year and I am running out of fresh ideas. BTW, I have four tops done, four to go.

    velveteena said...

    I would love this book because I am still love to look things up in books, follow the directions word for word. I don't have a comprehensive quilting book so this would be perfect for me!

    Jen said...

    I would love to add this book to my library because I'm a beginner (or still consider myself a beginner) and want to learn everything about quilting. Also, I'm a total nerd and love reference books.

    Lee said...

    This would be perfect for me. I don't have any quilting books and I could use all the help I can get...especially with applique!

    Marcia W. said...

    Jackie, The Quilter's Bible would be an awesome book to START my quilting book library. While I have patterns, this would be the first quilting methods book that I've owned (if win). It would be so nice to look up "how to" do something (like the way to avoid bulk in seams for pinwheels or 4-9-patches). I especially want to learn applique and a basic book to get me started would be great. My PC Tower will not fit in my lap or chair arm the way this book will! Thanks for the opportunity.

    Pat S. said...

    This looks like a wonderful book to have as a reference for any quilter. Thanks sew much for the chance to win, Jackie!

    I need this because I usually make a quilt top then it sits. I need help with the quilting part and there is always something new to learn!

    Tamie said...

    I have two daughters that are just beginning to quilt and this book sounds like it would be a great reference for them.

    Tanya said...

    I have been looking for a good book to help me and this one sounds pretty good.

    Nancy said...

    I could really use this - I'm kind of starting over, and could use the help.

    AnnaVallance said...

    Would love to add this book to my collection of quilt books as I am still learning. You have a great blog!

    Heather A said...

    I'm a relative beginner at quilting and can use all the help I can get. I'll bet this book would be very helpful.

    Kathie said...

    well I love quilt books so bet this is one I would need!
    I like the idea that it shows different layouts for the quilts, pushes the imagination a bit!
    thanks

    This book looks like it would be a great resource for a beginner quilter. I would love to give this to a friend who is just learning to quilt.

    Jackie,
    I love your blog. I would love to win this book as I am always looking for new ideas and to learn new techniques and better those I have. This book sounds like just the thing. I often get together with two friends and we love to share new tools and techniques and I know that if I had this book to share they would both want one.
    Thank you also for sharing the "Daisy Cot Quilt" Pattern. I was just looking for a cute idea for a baby quilt and this fits the bill.

    I have read so many great reviews about this book, and then found out you are having a give-away! I would love the chance to win this book... it would be the first quilting book I own. Thank you for the chance!

    Cassie said...

    This looks like a great book, I love reading about new methods to do different things with quilts. So another perspective would be wonderful on my shelf. Thanks for doing the giveaway! Happy Easter!

    Tami @ Lemon Tree Tales said...

    What a great giveaway Jackie! I tend to reference different quilting books for different techniques. It'd be fantastic to have one wonderful book to take with me to my quilting bees and when I'm traveling and am working on projects.

    Angela D. said...

    THis would make a great addition to my library. I'm always looking at my quilt books for inspiration and new ideas. thanks for the giveaway.

    Sylvia said...

    I am always looking for books that are not so much cut-and-dry pattern, but really get the creative juices flowing. This sure looks like it would fit the bill!

    Char said...

    It's just the type of book I usually buy. Lots of information about ever aspect of quilting. I can see it becoming my go to book. My copy of Complete Guide to Quilting gets used at least once a week.

    Jackie,
    I'll have to check out the Quilter's Bible...no idea what Kantha quilting is, but I am intrigued. =)
    How sweet of the author to share the pattern for Daisy Cot Quilt with your readers----wouldn't that be a great one for scraps or charm packs? Adorable!
    Happy Stitching,
    Heather

    What a lovely book! A quilter's dream having all the techniques in one place... I own lots of books, but they aren't so comprehensive.

    Pick me, please!

    Well, I have never made anything with a charm pack or layer cake. I do have two packs but was never sure what I wanted to do with them. This book would make that decision a lot easier:)

    I just found your blog from Diary of a Quilter, and I'm so glad I did! I'd love this book because I'm new to quilting and don't know a lot of the "in's and out's" yet. And now with a baby due any day now, I so badly want to make my kids beautiful quilts they'll love and adore!
