I LOVE PRECUT QUILTS! BLOG HOP KICK OFF



Greetings!  


My name is Tricia Maloney and I'm the author of the new C&T book, I Love Precut Quilts!  I'm here today to invite you to come along with me on a super fun quilt blog hop to celebrate my new book from January 30th - February 3rd.




WHAT'S A BLOG HOP?

A blog hop is a group of bloggers who are all writing about the same topic -- in this case, my new book.  Each blogger is assigned a day during the hop and decides what he/she will write about. For example, some bloggers might decide to create projects from my book to share with you, while others might do a book review, or even an author interview.  Blog hops generally run for a specific number of days and often include fun giveaways.  This blog hop runs from January 30th - February 3rd and you will be able to register at each blogger's blog to win a copy of I Love Precut Quilts! (international winners will receive an ebook copy of the book).

HOW DO I PARTICIPATE?

Below, you will find the I Love Precut Quilts! blog hop schedule along with links to all of the bloggers who are involved with the hop.

All you have to do is click the links each day to go to the featured bloggers. Once there, read the blogger's post and follow the instructions to register for the giveaway.  It's that simple to get in on the fun!

  9. While I love FQs, I seldom buy the bundles because of the cost. A layer cake is usually my choice since it is enough fabric to make a decent sized project but not quite so expensive. Charms are fun too, when I want to make small things.

  12. Fat Quarters are the most versatile and I do love them. However, the FQ bundles are outrageously priced... so, if I buy a pre-cut bundle it's usually a Layer Cake.
    I would be sooo happy to win a copy of your new book! Thanks for the opportunity.

    ReplyDelete
  52. I've never used purchased precuts. I always wonder what to do about the pinked edges and how they will change the finished sizes. However, I did purchase a charm pack (5" square -- is that what it's called) and am interested to learn. Your book looks great.

    ReplyDelete
  67. I love charm packs, they're color coordinated and there are templates designed especially for the 5 inch blocks.

  74. My favorite pre-cut is fat quarters. Even if I buy yardage, I tend to cut it into a fat quarter before I start working on a block. It's much easier to handle.

  78. A layer cake is a great way to get all of the fabrics in a line in a large enough quantity to make a decent sized quilt with a few yards of background material. That's why they're my favorite.

    ReplyDelete
  79. I like jelly rolls, charms, mini charms and FQ's. i haven't quite figured out what to do with layer cakes yet but there is always time to learn.
