Great photos of Amy's book, Victoria. Thanks for counting me in.ReplyDelete
This book looks great. The quilt that really grabbed me was the one draped over a chair with an orange pillow on top of it. These patterns look like they have lots of possibilities. Thanks for the chance to win!ReplyDelete
I really am looking forward to this book. I really enjoyed the one on the bed with the three pillows, one of them being purple... not sure if you know which one i am talking about, but it was really pretty and simple looking.ReplyDelete
This book looks fantastic an I hope I´ll have the chance to win the book :-))) My favorit quilt is the blue/green/brown flowers quilt placed on a chair :-))ReplyDelete
Greats from Luxembourg/Europe
i love the quilt on the cover, scrappy pinwheels plus the lovely whimsical flowers. good luck Amy!!ReplyDelete
I love your tulips! I can't wait to see more of this book...and get my hands on one!ReplyDelete
I'd love to win! Thanks!ReplyDelete
I like the quilt on the bed with the thin brown squaresReplyDelete
Thanks for the giveaway! What a great book!ReplyDelete
Thanks for the chance to win! Amy's quilt's are great!ReplyDelete
I've been wanting this book! Thanks for the chance to win :)ReplyDelete
I love your quilt you made from Amy's book ! they are both gorgeous ; and yet so different ! nice work ladies !ReplyDelete
It's hard to choose just one, I really like them all. The one that caught my eye the most is the large block quilt that is on the bed with the three bright pillows and a tray of coffee and toast. Wow!ReplyDelete
Love the look of these quiltsReplyDelete
I think this book looks wonderful. I love patterns that showcase the fabric and these certainly do.ReplyDelete
I like the one on the wall with the flowers in the lower right corner. This looks like it could also be the front cover. Very nice. I'd love to win.ReplyDelete
The book looks great, thanks for the giveaway.ReplyDelete
It's so hard to choose just one pattern - I love the Tumbling Cubes, Modern Mirrors and Knotted Squares.ReplyDelete
This book is wonderful. I have a few favorites but Amazon doesn't give names. I love the last one you have pictured here and the one with the small squares. That's the top two, but there are plenty more.ReplyDelete
I just added this book to my Amazon wish list. I've been looking for some great simple quilt patterns to use my 30's stash. The cover quilt would be great.ReplyDelete
This looks a great book!ReplyDelete
I'd love to win a copy!
I love the Tumbling cubes pattern
We are buried in snow here and those tulips make me long for spring...sigh...I guess the only thing that would cheer me up would be to win this book :)! Thanks for the offer!ReplyDelete
I am not sure what i like best about the blog tours, the chance to win something as nice as Amy's book or being led to so many great blog's. I'll never get any work done.. too busy reading what other's are doing :-)ReplyDelete
I don't know the name of the pattern, but it looked like a trellis with a pale aqua background and entertwined floral priny and a black which gave me the impression of a garden trellis.ReplyDelete
I like blog tours because they introduce me to more quilters....I liked the quilt with the small squares!ReplyDelete
I LOVE what you have done with Amy's design. Thanks for the chance to win with her beautiful book!ReplyDelete
My favorite quilt from the book (from what I've seen so far) is the white quilt with the brown squares and the different blocks in each corner... so many possibilities!ReplyDelete
I love what you've done with the flower & cross quilt... very nice indeed!
Thanks for the chance to win this great book!
i LOVE that last quilt you have pictured, i definitely want to make that one. Congrats to Amy on her book!ReplyDelete
My favourite is Modern Mirrors. Amy's blog is one of the first I started to read.It is wonderful that she has her own book now. Thanks for the giveaway.ReplyDelete
I love the colors of the quilt on the front. Thanks for the opportunity to expand my library and my creativity.ReplyDelete
This book looks like so much fun! I would love to try some of these patterns!ReplyDelete
I love that cross quilt. The 2 versions are so different, but still so neat.ReplyDelete
Looks like a great book! I like the one you've shown on the bed above with the orangish pillows. Love your blog page header too--So cheerful--brightens my day!ReplyDelete
WOW! Your colour combination is just revolutionary! How clever are you!ReplyDelete
I wish I were that imaginative. Maybe Amy's book would inspire me! :D
I love your version of Amy's quilt. The possibilities are endless. Thanks for the chance to win a copy of the book. Hugs.ReplyDelete
I love the tumbling cubes quilt and the one on the cover. I am looking forward to seeing all of the quilts in her book.ReplyDelete

I particularly like the simplicity of the white one with the red and turquoise squares. I'd love to win! thanks!ReplyDelete

I love the Maze quilt that you put together. Both versions look great.ReplyDelete

Love your quilt with the fussy cut flowers. Thanks for the chance to win this great book!ReplyDelete
I've been loving the Modern Mirrors quilt from this book, but just noticed the one on the bed made with Hope Valley (I've only been sewing/quilting for 2 months, I can't believe I can identify fabrics!)! I think that may be my favorite!!ReplyDelete
I can't wait to get this book!ReplyDelete
Love all the quilts, but the one on the bed in your blog is the one that caought my eye and made me feel warma and fuzzy. Why? Reminds me of playing on the floor of my mothers fithchen an a small child. The 50's linolium had a similr design. would love to winReplyDelete
I love your version of the quilt. At first glance I like the pinwheels best but they are all darling.ReplyDelete
thanks for the great giveaway, v! this book looks fab. :)ReplyDelete
What a great book. I appeals to quilters of all abilities. The sneak peeks have been giving me lots of inspiration.ReplyDelete
I love the quilt that you made! It looks amazing.ReplyDelete
My favorite is the one you have pictured above, with the square frames.
theredkiwi (at) yahoo (dot) com
I like the one that is on the white bed with white pillows and sunflowers. I haven't seen this one shown on the other blogs. Also, the Tumbling Blocks for it's simplicity. Thanks!ReplyDelete
I like all the patterns I have seen so far. I would love to win the book!ReplyDelete
I think my favourite would have to be the white quilt with the teal and red squares (on the couch).ReplyDelete
I can't wait to get making on some of these quilts!
I love the looks of the quilts so easyReplyDelete
Lots of pretty ones. I really liked the solids quilt with lots of greens, blues & some red that was hanging above a ledge.ReplyDelete
There are a few fun ones, but I love the tumbling cubes, reminds me of a Gwen Marsten piece. I also like your rendition with the tulips, your values yeally punch up the pattern.ReplyDelete
Isn't Amy the best! I really like Knotted Squares :)ReplyDelete
I love your version of the cross quilt. Great color and love the blacks in there.ReplyDelete
Amy's book looks amazing. I really love the simple minimalistic look of tumbling squares.ReplyDelete
I love how the same quilt can look so different when you use different fabrics! I'm not sure what it's called, but the first one I want to make is the one shown on the bed with the brown squares on top of the light colored squares.ReplyDelete
I like the clean lines of the quilts in this book. Thanks for showing us your version of the cross quilt.ReplyDelete
Your quilt looks awesome! It's amazing how different quilts look with different colors.ReplyDelete
My favorite was the blue/white photographed on the grass with the watermelon sitting on the quilt. I love the colors. I see endless possibilities from this book. Happy quilting.ReplyDelete
This looks like a wonderful book...I grew up in Southern California and Mexican tile always remind me of home! Really enjoyed finding your blog, too!ReplyDelete
What a great book with fantastic quilts! Don't know which on I like best...maybe the aqua and brown one.ReplyDelete

your version of Amys Cross Quilt is absolutely stunning, my favourite in the book is the quilt with the turquoise color ;-)
This comment has been removed by the author.ReplyDelete
I'm working on my first quilt and would love a copy of this book to inspire me for my next project! Thanks for the giveaway! gingerfreckle[at]gmail[dot]comReplyDelete
My favorite is the one that you made up -- I think it has "maze" in the name? What really impresses me is Amy's use of solids, and I also love that she has several all-solids designs. Thanks so much for participating in the blog tour!ReplyDelete
It looks like there are several great quilts in the book -- can't say that I have a specific favorite, I like them all. Love your tulips with the dark, gloomy looking outer border. Kinda reminds me of the constant gray, gloomy skies of winter here in Seattle and the promise of spring to come!ReplyDelete
This looks like a great book. I'm new to quilting and I would love a chance to own this book! Thanks!ReplyDelete
I love your take on the cross quilt V! Amy's book looks great- I like the solid one that looks almost like camo splotches, and daughter A likes the cover quilt. Thanks for offering the giveaway!ReplyDelete
Looks like another good book to own.ReplyDelete

Sooooo many great quilts in this book! I like the green and brown one in a tree very much.ReplyDelete
It would be great to win a new book to go along with a new skill.ReplyDelete

The quilt I liked was on a bed with purple & green pillows. I always look at large print fabrics and freeze when it comes time to cut into them. This looks like a great book to get over my hesitancy!ReplyDelete
Would love to make the quilt pictured above with the squares and boxes. It looks complicated but I hope it's not.ReplyDelete
I love how you used the tulip print and contrasted with black. Sweet and dramatic at the same time. I'm intrigued by the floating squares quilt, and would love to win a copy of the book!ReplyDelete
I need "fast and fabulous" projects. I am fairly new to quilting and always lack ideas for simpler quilts. Thank you for this chance!ReplyDelete
Would love to win a copy of Amy's book. I am loving your previous "cloud" post...ReplyDelete

This looks like a great book, I think my favorite quilt in the book is Modern Mirrors.ReplyDelete
Also.. I am trying your challenge of 15 minutes a day to make fabric from scraps and liberate my thinking of quilting...It is pretty fun!
such a fun b ook! I like your version of the crosses - that black on black border really is stunning, and makes your central blocks just jump out at you! My fave from the images on Amazon is the cream with the teal and red squares - love the simplicity of it!ReplyDelete
There are many quilts in this book I would love to make, here's hoping I can win a copy! thanksReplyDelete
I'd love to win this book! Thanks for the chance...ReplyDelete

I like the quilt on the cover best of the quilts I have seen. It has lots of possibilities. Thanks for the giveaway!!ReplyDelete
Nice book... I like the white quilt with the little squares, and the green, tupiose and....ReplyDelete
There is a green and blue and pink sort of woven or zigzag one that I like, but there really isn't one I don't like. :)ReplyDelete
Thanks for this stop on the book blog tour and the giveaway. I want to win Amy's book. Her tutorials are great so the book must be too. The quilt that I like (from your Amazon link) didn't have a name on the photo - it has aqua background with vertical columns of boxes sashed in brown with brown connectors. The boxes have colorful strips in them. It is hanging from a tree with a house in the background of the photo.ReplyDelete
Been fun seeing everyones take on their favorite quilt. I need more time to savor the photos to pick something to work on....I have such a hard time envisioning my own fabs to see if they would work. Need some more sit down time with the book ...ReplyDelete

Love your quilt - the black and white border is fantastic. Just bought a selection of black and white fat quaters for my sister for her birthday - will have to send her a link to your quilt for inspiration.ReplyDelete
My favourite is the blue and cream diamonds with the plate of watermelon slices in the picture - it is a fairly simple design but the fabric choice makes it stunning.
I just love the one on the cover. Thanks for the giveaway!ReplyDelete
