9 ways with big quilt blocks: a cozy home quick! (+ giveaway)

New-release day: Think Big

Filmstrip quilt and pillowDo you love surrounding yourself with all things quilty—pieces that add a cozy vibe to your home while showing off your creativity too?

Enhancing her home with quilted treasures is one of best-selling author Amy Ellis’s passions. In her new book Think Big, she shares her secret for warming up stark spaces with quilts of all sizes—and for sewing them in a jiffy.

So how does she do it? With large quilt blocks that will adapt to any area you want to enhance with a quilt. Amy’s 10 big block designs—18″ big, to be exact—act as a base for creating a bounty of coordinating projects:

• 1-block table toppers
• 1-block pillows
• 3- to 6-block table runners
• 3- to 6-block bed runners
• 9-block baby quilts
• 12-block throws
• 20-block twin quilts
• 25-block queen quilts
• 30-block king quilts

Sew just one project for a space that needs a little sprucing up, or make a coordinating set of projects to bring an entire room together.

But wait, there’s more…a very special wow factor in Think Big that had everyone at Fall Quilt Market buzzing. It’s the failsafe yardage and cutting charts that take away (far away) all the math hassles that typically go along with switching sizes.

Amy’s here as a guest blogger today to tell us more. Welcome back, Amy!


Amy EllisI’m so proud of the books I’ve written with Martingale, and I always love getting emails with pictures of your quilts made from patterns included in my books!

I’ve gotten plenty of emails with questions about resizing quilts to fit the size project that you want to make. My goal in writing Think Big is to inspire you to be creative and make unique quilts that suit your needs, whether it’s for your bed, for your dining-room table, or for a gift to be given.

Mod Pod pillow and runner
Transform this “Mod Pod” block into a pillow, runner, or a quilt in the size of your choice—Amy’s charts make it easy.

I wanted to include as many options as possible so that you could easily make the quilt that you want to make. Sorting out how to share those options was a bit of a challenge, but in the end I came up with some handy charts to give you the freedom to create.

Cutting chart from Think Big
Example of cutting chart from
Think Big

Knowing that not everyone loves quilt math as much as I do, my goal was to simplify the process for you as much as possible. I know some of you looking at the chart above might be slightly overwhelmed, but it really is quite simple!

Connections quilt and pillow
“Connections” quilt and pillow

Make just one block or make 30—I walk you through the math to determine your cutting plan. Most of the information you need is already filled in. Your only decision to make is how many blocks to sew and which fabrics to use. Make those choices, write your answers on the spaces provided in the charts, and you will be piecing (or fabric shopping) in no time!

Pillows from Think Big
Amy’s “Pillow Primer” includes step-by-step instructions for finishing a pillow two ways: with and without a zipper and binding.

Since all the blocks in Think Big are 18″, they add up to a quilt fast! There are projects for the beginner and for the more advanced quilter. I hope you will “think big” and find your perfect project soon!

  • We are new empty-nesters, so I want to think BIG to welcome our guests into a beautiful guest room! Yep, after raising kids for 27 years, they are gone and on their own. Now I have some extra cash (since I don’t have to keep the fridge stocked and pay high water bills), so I can spend to make this room really special. I’m willing to sew, paint, re-carpet…anything to have guests over! You’re invited too!

  • LOVE big blocks! I am contemplating a quilt for my king sized bed – and want it to have enough drop on the sides so hubby and I are not fighting over the covers…. big blocks make that task a LOT less daunting!

    —Regina on December 16, 2014
  • Bedroom

    —Hilda Krebs on December 16, 2014
  • I would use these patterns all over my house and for gifts.

    —Dawn Smolsky on December 16, 2014
  • I think my great room could use some "big" projects. It’s massive and my decorations are all small and cutesy.

    —Claire on December 16, 2014
  • Love the concept of Big Blocks and various sizing for your quilts.
    I am giving our 8-year-old granddaughter a sewing machine (used) for
    Christmas as she has been teaching herself and hand-sewing doll clothes
    for over a year. I am sure the big block book will start her on her way to a successful love of quilting.

    —Loretta Krebel on December 16, 2014
  • I think bed quilts would go together very quickly with these patterns.

    —MoeWest on December 16, 2014
  • First of all, I am NOT a fan of the big quilt block look. But these are simply stunning!! It’s made me totally rethink how I look at things. I could see these in my den and bedrooms. It’s all about creativity and thanks for sharing yours…

    —Sherrye on December 16, 2014
  • My living room – a quick Christmas throw. Thanks for the give-away!

    —Bea K on December 16, 2014
  • I want this book! Awesome, I love the no thinking resizing.

    —laura on December 16, 2014
  • My living room! It’s time for a makeover but there’s not much of a budget to it’s my fabric stash to the rescue!

    —Beth Strand on December 16, 2014
  • A daybed in the family room could use a fresh new "big" look.

    —Tesuque on December 16, 2014
  • This book looks perfect….I love big blocks! My room would have to be our family room since that is where we spend most of our time.

    —Melanie C on December 16, 2014
  • I’ve been making throws for each season to cuddle up on the couch with, and big block quilts are the perfect solution. My living room could use a Think Big makeover!

    —ZAnyMouse on December 16, 2014
  • My Family room could use a splash of color. Big Blocks would look great. Thanks for the inspiration,
    .

    —Shawna on December 16, 2014
  • IN my Sunroom, where I sew! I love anything new and exciting in there.

    Susie on December 16, 2014
  • Our living room needs to have more balance and Amy Ellis’s "Think Big" looks like just the thing to help us change it up.

    —Janey on December 16, 2014
  • I love projects that can be done quickly and the new book would have great projects in it.

    —Teresa on December 16, 2014
  • My sewing room inspires me to "Think Big" as it is the second biggest room in my house! I wanted to sell this house but my husband loved the acreage, so I told him if we stayed here I needed a room of my own. He always said my "stuff" was allover the house and it was. So we added a 20 x 20 room just for me and all my sewing/quilting. I love it-I just really need to reduce the stash! Seeing it all together in one place just begs for Big, Quick quilts!

    —Debbie Miller on December 16, 2014
  • My master bedroom is due for a makeover in the new year. I’m thinking some of those designs might work well on my bed.

    —Bridget on December 16, 2014
  • My bedroom needs a Think Big Quilt!

    —Debra Reber on December 16, 2014
  • Every room in my house is inspiration for Thinking Big because the kitchen and bathrooms have been stripped to the studs! We are in the process of renovating and even the empty bedrooms, livingroom and dining room are bare except the carpets/hardwood floors. The carpets in the bedrooms will be replaced, but hardwood floors will be restored in the downstairs. "Thinking Big" could be a theme for our entire house as it must have been one of the first homes in our town to be expanded over forty years ago. The former owner put a "box" on top of a box as as a result we’ve had "push back" from the city which has limited our renovation plans-this has been a result of more restrictive ordinances that have passed limiting "foot-print," and square footage. In our case, it’s a detriment to us completely modernizing the entire structure. We could have torn down and started from scratch but the city would not have permitted us to build the same size house. I have some quilts planned and using big blocks certainly is appealing.

    —Rosemary on December 16, 2014
  • Definitely the bedroom. Making a king size quilt for me was very time consuming and difficult and I would love anything to make it easier. But I do have a beautiful quilt in the end and now would love another if it could be made quicker and easier. Love the idea of bigger blocks.

    —Anne Shelbaer on December 16, 2014
  • So many ideas!! I see a wedding quilt for my niece and a table runner and place mats for my daughter.

    —Lise Genson on December 16, 2014
  • My ‘great room’ is in need of some ‘Big’ pillows and this book would be perfect for creating them…thanks for the sweet giveaway!!

    —Terry on December 16, 2014
  • I would like to think big for the family room in the basement. The book looks great.

    —Vicki H on December 16, 2014
  • A ‘Think Big’ quilt would be great on the couch in the rec room. Looks like a book I would love to have.

    —Sandy K on December 16, 2014
  • I need a new quilt (quick) for my own bed–is this selfish?

    —valerie csmith on December 16, 2014
  • My family room is big and could use a quilt with big blocks. Thanks for hosting this giveaway.

    —Ann D on December 16, 2014
  • With my children leaving years ago I could use some big ideas to spruce up their rooms.

    —Barbara D on December 16, 2014
  • Think Big would be great for my "quilty" Living/Dining room as I have been wondering how to "quilt it up" without looking too cozy!

    —Laurie Travis on December 16, 2014
  • There are so many rooms in my house that need organizing then decorating, thinking big would decorate all in a hurry!

    —Karen on December 16, 2014
  • I think my living room. I would love to make a big quilt to lay on the sofa and some big pillows

    —Margaret Schindler on December 16, 2014
  • What room? Could be any of them, but I think the den would look spiffier with nice pillows and lap quilts! The first design with the dark grey and color blocks would be great addition! Thanks for putting my name in the hat for the drawing!

    —June on December 16, 2014
  • Not my home, but my camper needs LOTS of pillows and throws and a bed quilt!!

    Debbie D. on December 16, 2014
  • I would think big for my family room – which has no quilts in it! thanks!

    —Lee on December 16, 2014
  • I need a big quilt in my bedroom

    —NancyB from Many LA on December 16, 2014
  • My inspriation would be my bedroom, which always looks messy because I don’t even own a bedspread. I think a big-block quilt would work perfectly in there. Maybe the film quilt, and matching pillows?

    —Lynne on December 16, 2014
  • I would use Think Big for my living room. Also, bedrooms.

    —Dianna Willstaedt on December 16, 2014
  • Hi,this book looks so neat! I’d start in the bedroom+then the living room! Thanks for a great giveaway!

    —LINDA on December 16, 2014
  • The kids are over-quilted, but I’ve been scared to tackle a king sized quilt… the idea of "think big" inspires me to dive in and try to make a quilt worthy of our sanctuary.

    —Annette on December 16, 2014
  • I would love to make a new big quilt for our living room that is currently undergoing a renovation.

    —Karen A on December 16, 2014
  • When our daughter’s wedding was held in our home this past March, we had purchased some sorely needed new living room furniture. This room is absolutely crying out for a quilt and some cute pillows.

    Jane @ Handiworking on December 16, 2014
  • I would like to read "Think Big" in my big living room. I do like big blocks. Thanks for the opportunity to win this book.

    weezie on December 16, 2014

    —Connie Rodriguez on December 16, 2014
  • I have a lovely family room, but it has a cathedral ceiling, and a floor-ceiling stone fireplace – i need something big/quick to make this space "homey"!

    —Susan on December 16, 2014
  • OK, I’m really "thinking big"! I’m one of the leaders for our church crafting group, and I’m always looking for fun, interesting, but not-too-complicated quilt patterns for us to use to make baby quilts. We donate them to our church’s Baby Dedication, and also to Life Centers – an organization for women in crisis with unplanned pregnancies. I’ve also written several simple patterns for the group.
    This book would be a wonderful resource for creative and fun quilts! I mean, 4 quilt squares, and you have a baby quilt!! How awesome is that?

    —Kathy in IN on December 16, 2014
  • I need to think big for my king size bed! I would love to make quilts for different seasons for my bed, but it takes such a long time to piece the tops for the size I need.

    —Cecilia on December 16, 2014
  • These are great books. I would be happy to have any of them.

    —Bev on December 16, 2014
  • I could pick any room in my house to use it! We have been here 28 years,and it is time to decorate!

    —Janet T on December 16, 2014
  • I am removating and will have a 12 foot high by 20 foot wall that will need something big and a quilt will fit the bill as I can make more than one and change it for different seasons.

    —Nancè on December 16, 2014
  • Having just moved, the whole house can use some ‘think big ‘ help. Now to find the time to make some projects happen.

    —Cindy on December 16, 2014
  • Definitely for my bed….this may be the only way I get one done for myself and my room really needs a redo.

    —Ann Marrison on December 16, 2014
  • I still haven’t made a quilt for my own bed, maybe this book would inspire me to get one made!

    —Lisa Marie on December 16, 2014
  • What is now my "computer/guest" room was once my late parents bedroom. I haven’t done any remodeling to it as of yet and I do believe this would be the spot for something BIG. A double bed, computer desk, bookshelf and highboy dresser are all that is here. Lots of room for big block accents. A bonus for me, is that I can use the fabric as my "paint swatches" to decide on a wall color.

    —debra lee on December 16, 2014

I love big blocks but haven’t found the right pattern yet….until I saw one from this book. I would absolutely love to win it and put it on my (our!) queen sized bed, after taking it on our honeymoon to the beach to make memories of it on the sand….

    —Terri Bailey on December 16, 2014
  • My daughter’s guest bedroom! Her house was built in 1912 and completely renovated ~ this would go perfect!

    —Rebecca on December 16, 2014
  • It would be the bedroom, since we just got a new bed and I’d like to freshen up the way things look with a new quilt, too. I don’t have a lot of time to sew so big blocks are the way to go for me. Thanks for the chance to win! 🙂

    Thanks for the give away. I would love to win the book.

    —Valerie Clark on December 16, 2014
  • I need a quilt or two in my home away from home — my motor home. We like campgrounds that look and feel more natural with dirt or gravel roads, and lots of trees and shrubs. The kind bears and deer walk through. These campgrounds are more beautiful, but a lot dirtier. I don’t want to spend a lot of time making a difficult quilt and then be afraid to take it outside to wrap around me by the campfire. I love the sizing chart.

    —Theresa on December 16, 2014
  • Our bedroom is speaking to me about having a new bed quilt. The big blocks would be a perfect solution.

    —Marge P on December 16, 2014

    Thanks for showing pics and detail so we can get inspired.
    Cheers

    —Carol on December 16, 2014

    —Susan on December 16, 2014

  • Big blocks are perfect for me. I used to quilt every day but went back to work as a Realtor. Guess how much time I have to quilt now! Almost none! I squeeze in a little time here and there but big blocks would make it a lot easier to actually finish a project! I still have grandchildren to finish quilts for. We have 11. The ones I made baby quilts for have grown remarkably! I guess I will be making a few more! (gladly)

    —Elizabeth Foley on December 16, 2014
  • Wow! Love big blocks! Great inspiration to use my "special fabric" set aside for a living room quilt. ….right after I finish my Christmas gifts 🙂

    —Jackie on December 17, 2014
  • My bedroom, because of the king bed, this may be just the idea for a quilt pattern I have been looking for. The fabrics were picked a long time ago (maybe ten years!) and nothing jumped out at me. These just leaped off the screen!

  • I need to spruce up my living room. I think some wall hangings and pillows might work.

    —Linda Cejnar on December 17, 2014
  • Maybe the Family Room but honestly I was thinking Charity quilts.

  • I love big quilts!!!!!! I would love this book!!!! Looks like it has so many wonderful ideas!!!! sonjasmith76@yahoo.com

  • I think a large pattern in my bedroom would work well. There is nothing visually going on there, so it won’t compete with anything else

    —Marguerite Namdar on December 18, 2014
  • I could use a "big" look in the bedroom – a nice new quilt for Spring!!

    —Allison on December 18, 2014
  • My "craft" room (aka. the basement) could use a little remodeling and some color help.

  • I’ve been admiring the quilts in this book for a while now…especially the blue & gray one. Time to try a big block quilt.

    —Gail on December 18, 2014
  • The bed in my guest room needs a new quilt. Looks like "Think Big" would be perfect for it!

    —Terri E on December 18, 2014
  • My computer room would be duly enhanced w/a Think Big wall hanging.
    This is the perfect pattern book for several rooms in my home as a matter of fact. Thank you for sharing!

    —Diane B on December 18, 2014
  • Probably the bedrooms! I have really tall kids and kid in law! He’s 6’8″ and the big quilt would work for the big guy! My son is 6’4″ and the daughter is 6′! I always think big! They put things up high where I can’t reach them! THINK BIG!!!!!!

  • My bedroom! I need a quilt for the bed that has plenty of drop so that when I toss and turn I don’t end up w/o covers.

    Moira McSpadden on December 19, 2014
  • Love the look. I would use table runners and grands’ quilts.

    —nancy in IN on December 19, 2014
  • What great ideas for large great quilts and my DD has just the house for them too.

    Donna on December 19, 2014
  • Our living room would be perfect for big block quilts — beautiful quilts strategically placed for anyone to grab and cuddle in while visiting, watching tv, or napping.

    —Ellee on December 19, 2014
  • Entry wall *IMPACT* – easy to change up the season or decor!

    —Gina M on December 19, 2014
  • It would have to be my bedroom. It needs a whole new makeover. Since all the guess work has been eliminated by the failsafe yardage and cutting charts, this project does not seem so overwhelming. Thanks for the giveaway.

    —Virginia Bronner on December 19, 2014
  • Your book looks very exciting! I have been quilting almost 3 years, and I know this book would be very helpful. It would be so fun to receive it. If I win, I will put it to good use. 🙂

  • Just ONE room? From what I can see of this book there’s something for every room in my cozy 1880 house.

  • TV room to start. Love the podcast!

    —Stephanie on December 19, 2014
  • I need two new bedspreads!

    —Cindy S on December 19, 2014
  • I sure could use your ideas for making couch pillows. I have been saving most of my fabric scraps (that are too small to sew with) and plan to use for pillow stuffing.

    —Mimi on December 19, 2014
  • I love Big block quilts and need to make one for me. I have made many quilts but never one for myself. This is a goal for next year. This book would give me lots of ideas for how to make one quick, so I can get on to all my other wish list items to make.

    —CindyM on December 19, 2014
  • I am making a big block quilt for my daughter. I found a seven inch quilt block that I liked. I made it bigger by using my printer. It was a lot of work, but I love the way it’s turning out. My next big project is making a quilt for my husband. We have a king size bed. Then after that making quilts for my brothers and sisters-in-law. Sure could use a big quilt pattern for each of those projects.

    —Jeannette Bessler on December 19, 2014
  • I could use a big block quilt in my living room as it has vaulted ceilings so it would be the right scale. Plus I could use some new decor and a quilt is a nice way to change it up.

    —Rosalind Gutierrez on December 19, 2014
  • Our guest bedroom would look great with one of these quilts. Thanks for the great giveaway.

    —Renea on December 19, 2014

  • My fabric room giving me ideas for all this fabric stash.

    Keep smiling,

  • The small apartment in my basement. It is always available to visiting friends and family but could use some big, bold colors and designs. And then I’d think about the other rooms in the house.

    —Pearl on December 20, 2014
  • My home office needs brightening up. When working with numbers all day you need something bright to look up at.

    —Rhonda Davis on December 20, 2014
  • My living room would be the room to think big in. I could use some new pillows or other decorating items. Thank you for the chance to win this book!

    —Karen Funk on December 20, 2014
  • The guest bedroom definitely needs quilts to fit a queen sized bed. I have lots of old quilts but they all fit a double. Beds now are bigger, so this book would probably help me fix this problem.

    —Nancy Angerer on December 20, 2014
  • Hi there,
    I am totally loving the big block idea. I need to think big in my teenaged son’s room!
    Thanks so much for the giveaway,
    Jacqueline in Pitt Meadows

    Jacqueline VH on December 20, 2014
  • I am currently in charge of our quilt guilds fabric stash that we use to make charity quilts. Using big blocks would help members sew quilts more quickly. Larger quilts for teens and adults are always in demand. I would like to use big blocks patterns to cut up kits for members to sew together. Looks like a great book.

    —Linda on December 20, 2014
  • This book looks fantastic. I usually do small piecing, so this would be a refreshing change. Thanks for the chance to win this book.

    —Donna W on December 21, 2014
