*** THIS GIVEAWAY IS NOW CLOSED ***
I've been flicking through the book and I've decided that I cannot pick a favourite. It's like picking your favourite child. (Well I have no children so it's like asking me which of my cats is my favourite. That's just wrong.) I've managed to only narrow them down to the following few...
|Box of Chocolates|
|Stars and Stripes|
Julie's also sent along a few questions for me to answer, so here goes...
Q1: All of the quilts in Skip the Borders are... borderless! Do you skip borders on most of your quilts?
- I think my brain doesn't automatically add a border when designing a quilt, so I'm going to say that most of the time, I do skip borders. Occasionally, there'll be a quilt that just screams for a border, and I have to oblige.
Q2: In the intro to my book I give you Permission to Break the Rules. Do you break some quilting rules? What is the number one rule you break and why?
- I taught myself to quilt through trial and error, and from lots of reading, so I never actually learned the rules. Which I'm actually thankful for, because then I've never limited myself to doing things a certain way. I have taken the time to learn proper sewing techniques though, but when it comes to design and colours, there are no rules in my book!
Q3: It's no secret that I love binding! In Skip the Borders I included an entire chapter on binding. So the million dollar question, is do you use bias or straight of grain most of the time?
- Straight of grain 100% of the time. I have yet to do a quilt with curved edges, so until then, I probably will never feel the need to go the bias route.
And now to the good stuff! Julie and Martingale are offering one lucky winner a free eBook copy of Skip the Borders! All you have to do enter is answer any one of the above questions :) One entry per person. I'll pick a winner next Tuesday October 16th. Good luck!
