New book––Sisterhood of Scraps + guest author + giveaway!

 

Welcome! Our quilting world gets a little bit bigger every time a generous quilter shares her energy and ideas to inspire others. Lissa Alexander, author of Oh, Scrap! and Marketing Director for Moda Fabrics, is Martingale’s guest blogger today.  And she is exactly that type of individual. She is a talented, creative, savvy businesswoman AND a thoughtful friend who does much good through the connections she makes in fabric and in life. Read along and learn more from this terrific designer as she shares charming stories of challenges and friendships within Sisterhood of Scraps. Prepare to be inspired!


Hello all,

I am thrilled to be on Martingale’s blog today to tell you about my new book, Sisterhood of Scraps, available TODAY!

First, Let’s talk about this cover.  How cool are the chairs on the wall with quilts ever so neatly folded and draped over them? Six chairs, one for each of the designers in the Sisterhood, and a modern representation of the quilting groups of years past.

 

Where did the title of this book come from?

Sisterhood:  An association, society, or community of women linked by a common interest, religion, or trade. A group creating countless memories with people who love and support each other by sharing their own unique arsenal of knowledge, skills, and talents.

I am lucky to be surrounded by so many people who share their talents.

Scraps: Small bits of fabric left over after you cut the main piece.

Sheryl Johnson’s scrap drawers

As a follow-up to my solo book, Oh, Scrap!, I invited some of my designer friends to create a scrap quilt, but there was one catch. Each designer was assigned a shape to base their quilt on, and I would also make a quilt using my interpretation of the same shape. And the resulting quilters were secret until the big reveal.

Laurie Simpson (@minicksimpson), a good friend and a Moda designer, was the first person I invited. I challenged her to create a quilt using any combination of four and nine patches. Laurie rifled through her scrap bins, used blues and creams, and added a stacked-brick border to create her quilt titled Forty-niner.

Forty-niner, by Laurie Simpson

Laurie creates a scrap-fabric bundle she calls the “99 Bundle,” which is a collection of 9″ squares of some oldies and lots of goodies. To find out more about 99 Bundles, visit Minick & Simpson.

The 99 Bundle

My version of four and nine patches is called Friendship Starter. I had used both of these elements in previous quilts, and the little four patches seemed to multiply like baby rabbits. So this was the perfect project to use them up.

Friendship Starter, by Lissa Alexander

Any four patches I had left over were used on my backing or shared with others.

Next up on the Sisterhood lineup is Susan Ache (@yardgrl60).

Susan is the most energetic and creative person I have ever met. I tell you this because when I contacted Susan about the book concept, she immediately said "Yes, and I have a quilt that would be perfect." So, in this case we worked backward. Susan created Scrap Diving, featuring a center LeMoyne Star surrounded by Log Cabin blocks. The pop of red behind the stars, finished with a red binding, is amazing.

Scrap Diving by Susan Ache

I used the Log Cabin concept and set my blocks on point to create This Little Light of Mine. The blocks are quilted with a floral pattern to highlight all the light sections and with straight lines through the darker sections, making those areas recede.

This Little Light of Mine, by Lissa Alexander

As I write this blog post it is the last month of this decade and if you are thinking your New Year’s resolution is going to be to use up your scraps or stash, some quilts in this book are perfect for that, such as Forever Friends by Sandy Klop (@sandyklop) of American Jane.

Forever Friends by Sandy Klop

If you want to expand your color theory and want to use a wide range of colors and fabrics, we have some great choices for that also. I am in love with Sheryl Johnson’s Half-Square Hashtags.

Or if you want to learn some new words like "Raditional", there are plenty of tidbits throughout the book for you (thank you Barbara Brackman).

Hope you have enjoyed the previews of some of the quilts. Look out for projects from additional designers such as Barbara Brackman (@barbarabrackman) and  Kim Brackett (@kim_brackett).

A Sisterhood can be a secret club with only members knowing each other’s identities. That was the case as we worked on this book, but now it’s time to invite each of you to join the Sisterhood of Scraps club.  There is a membership certificate at the back of the book. Feel free to cut it out and display it proudly or share it with us on social media using #sisterhoodofscraps hastag.

I can’t wait to see what you make.

She is a person I hope to one day meet and would love to see with! Sandy Klop’s quilt, Forever Friends, is similar to my style, and I have followed Barbara Brackman for years and love her work! I am so excited about this book and all it can offer with respect to quilting with scraps and relationships with our sisters.

    —Marguerite D Irvine on January 3, 2020
  • I probably wouldn’t be quilting today without the 30+ (eeek) years of inspiration from Barbara Brackman.

    —Sandy Jones on January 3, 2020
  • I think Lisa Alexander is more my style! Love everything she does!

    —Sybilla Steenport on January 3, 2020

    Nancy on January 3, 2020

    —A. Bouwman on January 4, 2020

Scraps are my life!! Looking forward to securing a copy of Lissa’s new book Sisterhood of Scraps for my library. Allison C Bayer, Plano, Texas

    —Allison C Bayer on January 4, 2020

    —Theresa Sherlock on January 4, 2020

    —Sarah Austin on January 4, 2020

  • I have lots of favorites but I especially love Susan Ache’s designs. Fabulous giveaway!!!!!

    —Janice on January 4, 2020

  • Oh I love scrap quilts, that is all I do anymore. I even made a couple of Susan Ache patterns. Gotta have the book for more ideas! Love it!

    —Donna on January 4, 2020
  • What an incredible book!! I want to make everything in it!
    But if I have to pick one to start, it will be Laurie Simpson’s absolutely beautiful blue/white quilt!!

    —Catherine Zerr on January 4, 2020
  • I am such an eclectic person when sewing that I would have a hard time trying to choose a favorite "quilting sister". I do what I feel in that moment of creating, be it free flowing or structural. I love all the quilts that were shown and will anticipate grabbing the book soon.
    Thank you.

    —Milly Fessler on January 4, 2020
  • Lissa Alexander’s quilts come closest to my style of quilts I love. All are beautiful though.

    —Phyllis Fenice on January 4, 2020
  • I would say that Lissa Alexander is the closest "sister" when it comes to your quilting style, although I love all of the quilts shown, as well as the scraps!

    —Karin S. on January 4, 2020
  • I would say Lissa Alexander. Looks like I could use a wide range of scraps. All of the quilts are beautiful but her quilt "This Little Light of Mine" would be the first I would try.

    —DJ on January 4, 2020
  • Lissa Alexander is the closes to me. I seem to have fabric multiplying every time I make something. These quilts are lovely!

    DawnyK on January 4, 2020
  • I’ve been waiting patiently for this book to come out! I love Forever Friends by Sandy Klop.

    —Carol on January 4, 2020
  • Lissa Alexander

    —Verna on January 4, 2020
  • Lissa’s quilt is my favorite out of the ones shown, but my “sister” would probably be Barbara Brackman because of her civil war style which is my absolute favorite.

    —Debby on January 4, 2020
  • Laurie Simpson’s quilts speak to me and her blue and white quilt shouted “MAKE ME!” Will have to get this book.

    —Kathy Gilligan on January 4, 2020
  • Susan Ache shows off one of my loves! Log cabin blocks are so good for scraps and then throw in a star! Yep, she even has my favorite color….red! Hello Sister!

    —Cathy M Hughes on January 4, 2020
  • Absolutely, positively Barbara Brackman! I "acquired" a few antique Sunbonnet Sue/Overall Bill blocks from eBay a decade ago, not knowing ’til they arrived that they were from her collection! I cherish them still.

    —Lucy on January 4, 2020
  • LISSA!! I love to make the backs interesting as well…

    Cathy Burns on January 4, 2020
  • Laurie Simpson would be my scrappy sister

    —Connie Thompson on January 4, 2020

    —Virginia Marien on January 4, 2020
  • So hard to pick one but……i guess Lissa Alexander. Love her new book!

    —Sharon F-C on January 4, 2020
  • I really enjoyed reading this blogpost.. I know I will love the book too.

    —Rebecca on January 4, 2020
  • Hard to choose but I would say Lissa wins!

    —Barbara Kelly on January 4, 2020
  • I love them all, but Lissa Alexander is my favorite.

    Carolyn K on January 4, 2020
  • Lissa…

    —Barbara Kelly on January 4, 2020
  • Lisa Alexander

    —Bobbie Starr on January 4, 2020
  • Lisa quilts for some reason appeal to me the most. Just something about them.

    —debby oldenburg on January 4, 2020
  • I adore all the designers and have used their books, but my color and design sense is closest to Lissa Alexander herself. I would love to study the other designers’ influence on Lissa’s quilts!

    —Kathy Kalinowski on January 4, 2020
  • Lisa Alexander is the closest "sister" when it comes to my quilting style.

    —Debbie on January 4, 2020
  • Likewise, I love Lissa Alexander’s designs. I love the more traditional with a touch of present day.

    Susan St. John on January 4, 2020
  • Liissa quilts for some reason appeal to me the most. Just something about them and the choice of color

    —debby oldenburg on January 4, 2020
  • They are all great, but I will go with Bonnie Hunter.

    —jo c on January 4, 2020
  • Love Kim Brackett’s quilting patterns!

    —Cathy B. on January 4, 2020
  • I love them all, my kind of book

    —Hilda Krebs on January 4, 2020
  • If I have to pick one, I guess it would be Lissa Alexander, but it is not an easy decision at all!

    —Ellen Flaherty on January 4, 2020
  • I love the quilt ‘forever friends’, by Sandy Klop. I got my sister into quilting and we go to retreats together. The reason I like Sandys’ quilt is that it looks like granny squares. I crochet also and this quilt reminds me of my ‘granny’ who taught me how to crochet and quilt. Lasting memories were made. I’ve lost her but this quilt would always remind me of her.

    —linda agee on January 4, 2020
  • I love 9 patches, so it would be Lisa!

    —Linda Burke on January 4, 2020
  • They are all so beautiful. I really like Lissa Anderson’s the best!!

    —Margie Stover on January 4, 2020
  • The “sister” I’m closest to is whichever one I’m with at any given moment😂 However I have scraps that would be perfect for the quilt Sandy Klop contributed to the book!

    —Lisa Barlow on January 4, 2020
  • Sandy Klop would be my "sister"

    —Rosemary Havens on January 4, 2020
  • Lissa Alexander would be my designer who is the closest "sister" when it comes to your quilting style. I love all of her quilts. I have learned so much from her previous books, and I look forward to what I can learn from this newest book. In all fairness, there is so much to be learned from each of the quilting "Sisterhood" members. Thanks so much for the opportunity.

    —Ann West on January 4, 2020
  • I love scrap quilts and log cabins are a favorite. My favorite designers would be Susan Ache, Lissa Alexander and Barbara Brackman.

    —Peggy on January 4, 2020
  • Jinny Beyer.

    —Lin on January 4, 2020
  • CROSSING MY FINGERS!

    —SUE in MN on January 4, 2020
  • Sandy Klop would be my sister. I love the variety of colors, the scrapper the better and all those tiny pieces make me drool. Love them all, can’t wait to start one.

    —Mary Jo on January 4, 2020
  • Lissa Alexander is so creative! I’d love to create quilts as beautiful as she does.

    —Debra Sawchak on January 4, 2020
  • Laurie Simpson. I love making four patches and nine patch quilts. This book looks amazing. Thanks for the chance to win.

    —Charlotte Hebrank on January 4, 2020
  • WOW! Can’t wait until I can check out this book in person. Thanks for sharing these new publications to those of us in rural areas. As for the bundles accompanying the prizes either is fantastic. My initial thought was American Jane since I’m called that, but the other Holly bundle would be most welcome too.
    Thanks Martingale and Moda plus all the designers and artists that contributed to this generous giveaway. A winning combination for sure.

    Eileen Emerson on January 4, 2020
  • sheryl johnson is my "quilt sister". love all her designs.

    —Carolyn Montgomery on January 4, 2020
  • Lisa, Bonnie, Barbara, Sheryl…I love them all! How do you choose just one? This book definitely has something for everyone & I cannot wait to get my hands on it! Many thanks, Ladies!

    —Robin on January 4, 2020
  • It’s so hard to decide, but Lissa’s This Little Light of Mine totally made me happy. And I don’t know who designed that gorgeous red exploding star, but my heart skipped a beat when I saw it.

    —Carole S. on January 4, 2020
  • Sheryl Johnson is my quilting sister

    —Christine Zofkie on January 4, 2020
  • Laurie Simpson would be the most like my sister! Love that blue and cream!

    —Deb on January 4, 2020
  • I love scrap quilts. The more fabrics, the merrier. My style is closest to Lissa’s quilt but I could make every quilt in this book. Not like the usual book I look at or purchase for only one or two quilts in it. Great job sisters!

    —Tina Knebel on January 4, 2020
  • 30 plus years of quilting…..lots of scraps! great book to tackle those bins!

    —Donna Vuletic Caldwell on January 4, 2020
  • First of all my sister is the one who comes closest to my quilting style. We enjoy the times we get to sew together and love seeing what each other has done. Laurie Simpson is the designer that comes closest to our styles. I loved her 49er quilt and my sister loves anything in blues and creams.

    —Nancy B on January 4, 2020
  • I love all too the scrap quilts presented. I think Lissa Alexander’s o & 4 patch is a style I embrace.

    —BettyAnne Alexander on January 4, 2020
  • The quilts look amazing. If I could only pick one sister, it would be Laurie Simpson. Thanks for offering the giveaway.

    —Bobbie Mentzel on January 4, 2020
  • I’m choosing Susan Ache for my quilting sister. I absolutely love her “scrap diving” quilt. This book is ahhhhmazing and I can hardly wait to see it in person. I’m on my way to quilt with my sister, in a few. I will, of course, share about Lissa’s new book with her. Quilting with your sister is the best.

    —Marsha on January 4, 2020
  • I would love this book. I am new to scrap quilts and they still terrify me. I think this would be a whole enlightening for my scrap knowledge. Perhaps I would learn not to be so critical.

    —Barb Walsh on January 4, 2020
  • I wish Susan Ache were my quilting sister! I love her use of color and bold design elements.

    —Barbara on January 4, 2020
  • As I said before: "You got me hooked" on Lissa Alexander! and her books of scrap quilts.

    —Dorothy A Davis on January 4, 2020
  • This book is wonderful! Depending on the time I have a different fabric sister style and it is most often determined by the fabrics because different people frequently give them to me. At this time it would be Sandy Klop.

    —Faith on January 4, 2020
  • Barbara Brackman, followed by Laurie Simpson. I like to piece and applique quilts as do Brackman and Simpson.

    —Adeline Rieger on January 4, 2020
  • I like Lissa and Sandy’s quilts. I also find Barbara B. and Kim B. to be inspiring. Thank you for the chance.

    —Amy F on January 4, 2020
  • This book is wonderful! Depending on the time I have a different fabric sister style and it is most often determined by the fabrics because different people frequently give them to me. At this time it would be Sandy Klop.

  • Barbara Brackman because she does applique quilts.

    Cynthia on January 4, 2020
  • I like Lissa and Sandy’s quilts. I also find Barbara B. and Kim B. to be inspiring.

    —Amy F on January 4, 2020

    Bette on January 4, 2020
  • I really like all of these, but the blue of the Forty-Niner by Laurie Simpson really grabs my eye!
    Thanks for the chance to win!

    —Debbie U on January 4, 2020
  • Bonnie Hunter is the closest "sister" when it comes to my quilting style.

    —Maureen Haynes on January 4, 2020
  • Lissa Alexander’s scrap quilt is the one I like. Most of my scraps are colorful and would look nice in that pattern.

    Nancy Norris on January 4, 2020
  • Honestly, I would be interested in making all the quilts spotlighted. I think the one that would move up to the top of my "TO DO" list first would be Lissa’s quilt with the ever popular 4 and 9 Patches. It would be fun to have her as my ‘adopted’ quilting sister! 🙂

    —Marcia Burt on January 4, 2020
  • I think yours are most like mine Beth!

    —Donna on January 4, 2020
  • Scrap Diving by Susan Ache is my favorite. And a close second is the half-square triangle block designs set on point. Not sure who the designer is, guess I’ll have to get the book. I love quilts set on point.

    —Lovie Ball on January 4, 2020
  • Hard to choose, but if I need to pick one it would be Lissa. This is a great collection with variety and would be so fun to win! Thank you!

    —Pam P on January 4, 2020
  • I love scrap quilts and the ones by Lissa Alexander speak to me.

    —JoAnne on January 4, 2020
  • Sandy Klop, love her fabric

    —Bev Hutchison on January 4, 2020
  • Sandy Klop’s "Forever Friends" is inspiring, as she has created order out of the chaos of so many choices. The book looks like a keeper.

    —Marilyn on January 4, 2020
  • I think Susan Ache would be my closest “sister” because I love doing log cabins along with a little something different like a star to highlight them.

    —Patricia M. on January 4, 2020
  • Yoko Saito is my "quilting sister".

    —Jennifer Wright on January 4, 2020
  • The designer who is my closest "sister" is Sandy Klop. I tend toward using all of my scrap colors, rather than picking out just a few colors.

    —Debbie Svedruk on January 4, 2020
  • I love to follow Barbara Brackman. I share her interest in antique quilts and reproduction fabrics.

    —Elizabeth C DallaTezza on January 4, 2020
  • Hard to choose a favorite, but I’m drawn to the simplicity of design and color in Laurie Simpson’s Forty Niner and Lissa Alexander’s This Little Light of Mine. Both use a controlled scrappy design which I find appealing.

    —Pam on January 4, 2020
  • Wow! Love this book! Can’t wait to get my hands on it. I’m glad it’s early in January so I can add these quilts to my list of must do’s for this year. So many designers that I made quilts from i’m glad they are all in one book! I think my favorite is Sandy Klop with her American Jane fabrics. Her little prints are whimsical and make me smile.

    —Judi smith on January 4, 2020
  • I would be so happy to receive this gift. I love all the quikts but Lissa Alexander really speaks to me. Her color chouces and organized scrap quilting style is just like me. I would love to learn from all of these great designers .

    —Carrie Cameron on January 4, 2020
  • I would say that after Barbara Brackman and anything Civil War, Laurie Simpson would be the closest, although I have started to try different designers and broaden my horizons.

    —MaryAnn Mairs on January 4, 2020
  • Lissa Alexander would be my closest designer sister.

    —Shirley on January 4, 2020
  • Kim Brackett – I have several of her books and love them all!

    —Sue Lopez on January 4, 2020
  • From this book I would have to say Lissa Alexander would be my quilting sister.

    —Cheryl on January 4, 2020
  • This Little Light of Mine by Lissa Alexander is my favorite and I like the floral quilting.

    —Regina Harris on January 4, 2020
  • These are all beautiful quilts. I am not lacking in scraps to make them. I think you sister is Laurie Simpson. I seem to have an abundance of squares and triangles.

    —debbie garrison on January 4, 2020
  • Laurie Johnson gets my vote but I’d like to make all these quilts! Lovely book Martingale!

    —Ellie Lively on January 4, 2020
  • Lisa Bongean hands down is my go-to scrap sister b/c she uses such small pieces in her quilts, and teaches us how to manage them with starch, proper pressing, and accurate cutting.

    —Amy Cofer on January 4, 2020
  • I can relate to Susan Ache best because I taught many beginning quilters log cabin from Eleanor Burns Quilt in a Day. Those past days were such happy times seeing faces smile at creating beauty with a quilt,

    —Myrna Schroder on January 4, 2020
  • I love scrap quilts, log cabins and fabric. Lissa your quilts would be fun to make, what a great book.

    —Catherine Stiele on January 4, 2020
  • I tend to enjoy Corey Yoder quilts. I love her colors and patterns. Thank you for this offer.

    —Linda Dompierre on January 4, 2020
  • I would have to say that both Barbara Brackman and Laurie Simpson are the closest to the quilt styles I love and their fabric designs fit mr perfectly as I am more of a “civil war” quilt person.

    —Lynn Morton on January 4, 2020
  • Laurie Simpson is my first pick , would love to try all the others in this book it looks great…thanks

    —De baker on January 4, 2020
  • My favorite one was Susan Ache’s log cabin with the big Lemoyne Star in the center.

    KAY MARBURGER on January 4, 2020
  • All wonderful, Lissa and Laurie if a must..Can’t wait.

    Sandra Beck on January 4, 2020
  • I love all the quilts in this book!! My favorite and most like my style is Lissa Alexander.

    —Vanessa Stewart on January 4, 2020
  • To tell the truth I do not have a favourite.I love them all! If they design scrappy then I am in and eat up all the scrappy designs.😊

    —Jan Healey on January 4, 2020
  • I have to say I most identify with Lissa. Love her use of traditional block and organized color families.

    —Alice on January 4, 2020
  • Would love to win Lissa’s book and one of the bundles. Thanks for this give-a-way!

    —Dottie Alexander on January 4, 2020
  • Susan Ache is probably the closest to my quilty style, although all these designs talk to me. This is a great book!

    ruth on January 4, 2020
  • I have admired Laurie Simpson’s designs for a long time, but it’s been several years since I actually made a quilt designed by her. I love this 4 & 9 patch with the stacked bricks border! I’ll choose Laurie:)

    —Mary on January 4, 2020
  • I’d say Lissa Alexander, although I’m certainly related to them all!

    —Pat Braun on January 4, 2020
  • I love the idea of this new book. I plan to order some for my shop. There were several new ideas in the pictures. I’m excited to teach them to the Pattys Heart Sisterhood.

    Patty Giesselmann on January 4, 2020
  • Laurie Simpson because the quilt is controlled scrappy.

    —Julie B on January 4, 2020
  • Hard to choose just one but I think it would be Lissa! Thanks for the chance to win this great prize!

    —Kerry Linklater on January 4, 2020
  • Lisa and Susan are my favorites. My scrap tub is calling for this book.

    —Freda on January 4, 2020
  • Sandy Klop/American Jane and I were separated at birth. Her bright primary colors and fun motifs sing my song.

    —Natalie Larson on January 4, 2020
  • Kim Dield

    —jackie norwood on January 4, 2020
  • Beautiful use of scraps, and the"sisterhood" is a wonderful description of quilters working together for a common good. Kim Diehl would be in my sisterhood.

    —Caren Sherman on January 4, 2020
  • I really like Susan Ache quilt pictured and am always intrigued with her posts. This Sisterhood book looks like a must have for my library!!

    —Nancy Fitzpatrick on January 4, 2020
  • I think I am most like Laurie Simpson in my quilting style. I love blues and whites as does Laurie. I love to "scrap up" the look of a quilt by using lots of prints rather than the same ones over and over. I see this in Laurie’s quilts, too. I find myself spending time examining her quilts for color combinations and ideas for adding variety to my quilts. Looking forward to getting my hands on this new book. I am determined to use lots of scraps in this new decade!

    —Belilnda Jones on January 4, 2020
  • Laurie Simpson. I am not sure I could recreate her quilt, but I sure would like to!!

    —Carol on January 4, 2020
  • Hmm, hard to choose.

    —Kathy A on January 4, 2020

  • Lissa Anderson and Sheryl Johnson

    —Kirsten on January 4, 2020
  • I love Susan Ache’s quilts and needlework. Love the quilts you are showing in this blog.

    —Kathie L on January 4, 2020
  • Love all of the quilts but probably have to say Lissa’s are outstanding.

    —Janann Schiele on January 4, 2020
  • I would say Laurie Simpson. I would so LOVE to win this give away!!

    —Beth Meyers on January 4, 2020
  • Shari and Chelsi – since I am fairly new to quilting and live 25 miles from the nearest (tiny) shop I rely on this internet. Their picture just spoke to me.

    —Mally on January 4, 2020
  • Lissa Alexander’s quilt is closest to my quilting style. But I would love to try the others as well!

    —Terry on January 4, 2020
  • Laurie Simpson. But all of those quilts look like great fun.

    —Linda Stumbaugh on January 4, 2020
  • Lissa Alexander. Love scrap quilts.

    —Audrey Andries on January 4, 2020
  • Since scrap quilts are one of my favorites to make, I like all of the quilts pictured. Winning this book would introduce me to some new quilters/designers I have not used before and add to my sisterhood.

    —Judy V on January 4, 2020
  • I would have to choose Susan Ache but all the scrap quilts look so darn cute!!

    —Patricia Daw on January 4, 2020
  • Well if you are going to make me choose a favorite sister ….. I would choose Lissa. Such a fun idea for this book and to see what two sisters quilts look like when they are done. I would be so excited to win! Happy New Year and thanks for giveaway.

    —Sheila Fernkopf on January 4, 2020
  • I love all of these! Fat quarters are little pieces of awesomeness!

    —Cindy Hoover on January 4, 2020
  • I have (and love) Oh! Scrap! Would love to have this book, too! Interesting, when a fabric or a set of rules are given to a number of ladies, to see the results and varied approaches! Thank you for the opportunity to receive this giveaway!

    —Sandy on January 4, 2020
  • I love Edyta Sitar’s choices of color in her Scrap quilts

    —Rita Hays on January 4, 2020
  • If I have to choose I would say Sandy Koop but
    I will also have to choose Lisa’s Alexander. I am so often drawn to her designs and fabric choices.

    —Ann on January 4, 2020
  • I like both but if just I have to pick just one it would be Lissa Alexander.
    Thanks for another great giveaway.

    —Bev on January 4, 2020
  • So many to choose from! I will say this week it is Corey Yoder. Next week, who knows,

    —Sheri L on January 4, 2020
  • I most like the style of Lissa Alexander.

    —Toddy Gladwin on January 4, 2020
  • It’s so hard to pick just one designer, but I think Laurie Simpson is the one that really shines for me. I love the chance to win the book. Thank you.

    —Barbara Meismer on January 4, 2020
  • Kim Brackett is one of my favorites. The book looks great.

    —Kathy on January 4, 2020
  • Blue is "me" so it has to be Forty-miner by Laurie Simpson!

    Brenda Holloway on January 4, 2020
  • All of them are awesome. Too difficult to pick one favorite.

    —Judy on January 4, 2020
  • Laurie Simpson design work speaks to me! Reflecting the sky and the water in her blue and white quilt!

    —Sharyn Hill on January 4, 2020
  • I just love scrappy quilts. Most of my quilts are scrappy. Sheryl Johnson wins my vote. I’m in 2 quilds and the friendship of these ladies is unbelieveable! Best group of people.

    —Roseann Heath on January 4, 2020
  • Who made the hotdog quilt? That’s the one! If Lissa made it, then she’s the one. If not, then she’s my runner-up, because my second favorite is the Friendship Starter. What a great variety, and I definitely need to use up scraps!

    —TaraA on January 4, 2020
  • This looks like a wonderful book! I would consider Laurie Simpson my design “sister”.

    —Janis C. on January 4, 2020
  • Since I love 9 patches, Laurie would be my favourite, but I also like new ideas and testing my comfort zone. Thanks!

    —Donna Miner on January 4, 2020
  • Susan Ache! I loved her quilt!

    —Christine M on January 4, 2020
  • Everything Laurie Simpson does touches my heart so we must be scrap sisters.

    —Diane on January 4, 2020
  • I love Sarah Klop’s quilting style. It totally mirrors my own philosophy that every random scrap needs to find a quilt home eventually. I love looking at each of my tiny scraps and remembering the quilt or sewing project that it originally was used in; and then giving it its own home too. For me, they all become memory quilts of a process that I dearly love. I seldom get to keep my projects; as there are always so many family and friends who need a gift to snuggle under and know that they were thought of and prayed for during the process of making their new gift. What a great book and book idea, with a little challenge for each designer, and the opportunity for all who see the book to use up those scraps that are just too precious and loved to throw away. This is my favorite type of quilting. My grandmother taught me her philosophy of use, repurpose, and reuse many decades ago. It has brought me much joy through the years and always kept her close to my heart in every project that I continue to create. 🙂

    —Kelly Pilkinton on January 4, 2020
  • All of the quilts are beautiful. It would be hard to choose a favorite. Will be looking for the book at my favorite quilt shop.

    —Kathy D on January 4, 2020
  • I love Lissa Alexander’s quilts and style so she would be my closest “sister.”

    —Jaylene B. on January 4, 2020
  • I love Lissa Alexander’s style! She would be my sister!

    —Kim Romano on January 4, 2020
  • Lissa Alexander for me.

    —Patricia Anderson on January 4, 2020
  • Lisa Alexander is closest to what I truly like..but I really do not have a distinct favorite..All are great..

    —Betty Sue Antonetti on January 4, 2020
  • Wow! What a difficult choice. I love the fabric of Sandy Klop and Minick and Simpson. I love Sheryl Johnson’s patterns. I love Kim Brckett’s scrappy patterns. Lissa’s quilts are gorgeous with so many with beautiful low density backgrounds. I can’t choose my favorite. Everyone is my sister. What can I say, I am from a huge family!

    —Paula in NE Ohio on January 4, 2020
  • It’s hard to say, but I’d have to go with Laurie Simpson because of the colors she uses.

    —Karen on January 4, 2020
  • Challenging question to answer- I’d say for my style sister would be Lissa Alexander – she is a master at moving traditional into the 21st century.

    —Saroja on January 4, 2020
  • Hard to pick closest to my style. I think it is either Sandy Koop and Lissa Alexander. What I do know is I need this book!

    —Sharon Lowy on January 4, 2020
  • Lisa and must be kindred spirits. I am drawn to her style.

    —Lenny T on January 4, 2020
  • Although I own books by many designers, I seem to have more books by Kim Diehl than anyone else, so she must be my quilting sister!

    —Carolyn S. on January 4, 2020
  • Love the concept of sisterhood that highlights similarities but allows for individuality. Of the designers highlighted in this blog, I think perhaps Laurie Simpson would be my closest sister in terms of quilting style.

    —Linda B on January 4, 2020
  • Love Laurie’s blue and white one. Was introduced to scrap quilts by Jo Morton, then found Bonnie Hunter. My new favorite scrap quilt was a mystery by Kevin the Quilter.

    —Karen Hoffman on January 4, 2020
  • It’s hard to pick just one designer to be my quilting sister. I absolutely love Susan’s log cabin mixed with star blocks, so I guess she would be my quilting sister. What a wonderful way to use scraps. I may have to make a few more patterns from the book to use up the scraps in my collection.

    —Judy W on January 4, 2020
  • Lissa Alexander seems to be my soul sister. I love squares and various patches. How easy to make a friend by presenting them with a starter quilt!!

    —Mindy on January 4, 2020
  • I too love all of the quilts in this book. I love adding leftover scraps from the front into the back of my quilt so Lissa might be the one I would be closest to in the sisterhood. I would definitely be buying this book if I don’t win it!

    —Teresa on January 4, 2020
  • I like Lissa Alexander. She seems to design common quilts which I like but yet they are beautiful.

    —Dixie Felton on January 4, 2020
  • I believe that Laurie Simpson would be my quilting sister…. love her style, and Susan Ache is a very close second !

    —Doris Gould on January 4, 2020
  • The log cabin style quilt by Susan Ache has certainly caught my "fancy."

    —Kay Dammast on January 4, 2020
  • Lissa Alexander for sure! Very cool patterns.

    —Leslie Tidaback Hilmer on January 4, 2020
  • I love all the quilts. I like the designer Susan Ache.

    —Jane on January 4, 2020
  • I like many designers. I think I would have to say that Lynn Hagmeier would make a wonderful quilting sister. Lissa would certainly be on my list. This book looks great!

    —Linda J Hulen on January 4, 2020
  • Very nice ! I am especially drawn to the one that Laurie Simpson is showing. Although they are all inspiring. Kathy

    —Kathy Herzberg on January 4, 2020
  • I think my style is most like Laurie Simpson’s. I love the blues and creams she used in ‘Forty-niners’. I like to take a simple block and make it look difficult by setting it differently or changing the color values. I would love to win this prize package!

    —Marcia Gilbreath on January 4, 2020
  • Wow! Laurie’s blues make her my sister!

    —Margaret Minton on January 4, 2020
  • Susan Ache’s SCRAP DIVING calls my name the loudest of all these books. I scrap dive all the time for larger scraps and for the tiniest pieces that end up as a nose or eyes in my applique quilts…..you never know what size piece you might need.

    —Georgia G Davison on January 4, 2020
  • I can’t choose. I love them all. Four patches and nine patches are what I use most often.

    —Peggy S on January 4, 2020
  • It is hard to pick a specific quilt. They are. All beautiful. Presently, I am working (in the car, on trip) on a ‘Grandmother’s Flower Garden. But I especially like Laurie Simpson’s Forty Niner and Susan Ache’s Little Light of Mine. They remind me of helping my grandmother piecing quilts in the Summer and quilting them in the Winter. My Grandmother was my Mentor in Quilting. All the quilts would be worth sewing

    —Judi Green on January 4, 2020
  • I’ve always been attracted to log cabin patterns so Susan and I would make harmonious sisters, however in drooling over each preview page, I could join the sisterhood of the diamond block designer. I’d make every quilt in this book. It’s a must-have! Thank you for the collaboration.

    Marianne from TN on January 4, 2020
  • Lauri Simpson’s quilt Forty Niner really resonates with me. I like using one main color in all its variations to make a quilt. I’m partial to traditional piecing, and there’s enough variation in the coloring and prints to make the quilts really interesting. Lauri would be my quilting sister for sure!

    —Elizabeth D Smith on January 4, 2020
  • I would say Susan Ache.

    —Sherrill L Ash on January 4, 2020
  • I’m not sure that I’ve found a quilter who quilts like me….I do "Flight of the Bumblebee" so that I can go anywhere I want/cross lines/do things like hearts and flowers, whatever strikes my fancy at the time. I have limited use of my right arm because of a car accident and do not want to put a lot of quilting on my quilts…I want them to be soft and useable, not just something that hangs on a wall. I do admire those that quilt that way, but it’s just not me.

    —Donna Whitney on January 4, 2020
  • Lissa Alexander…love her creative pieced backing!!

    —Connie Koontz on January 4, 2020
  • Love the log cabin so I would say Lissa Alexander is my closest sister.

    —Teresa on January 4, 2020
  • Sandy Klop and Sheryl Johnson’s quilts are probably my favorites but I loved most all of them. Great concept for the book. Keep the scrap quilts coming

    —Donna M. on January 4, 2020
  • I like Corey Yoder and Carrie Nation. Kaifeng makes we wish my mind could see color possibilities as he does.

    —Diann on January 4, 2020
  • I love all the Quilt styles but Lissa Alexander is closest to my scrap control random style. So fresh and young. Makes you want to snuggle under it!

    —Dana Braden on January 4, 2020
  • I would have to say Shari and Chelsi. I love the warmth of their fabrics.

    —Deena on January 4, 2020
  • I love the log cabin concept quilt by Lissa Alexander. I work with a group making quilts for the local cancer center and we have just finished 18 of them which will be dedicated during the service on Sunday and then taken to the hospital. This would give us lots of ideas to use as we make more quilts.

    —Donna Olson on January 4, 2020
  • Forever Friends by Sandy Klop would be the quilt I would make! I love the color choices and pattern that Sandy has chosen for this quilt. It would celebrate all my "quilting forever" friends!

    —Patty F. on January 4, 2020
  • The quilts in this book are very interesting. And yes I do have plenty of scraps that would be perfect for some of these projects.

    —Barbara Machuga on January 4, 2020
  • So much talent in one book! How do you pick? How about … all of them!

    —Jeannine on January 4, 2020
  • I’m partial to ANYTHING scrappy….and always combining some new fabric from those tiny scraps that might have gone into a ’round file’.

    —Shirley on January 4, 2020
  • Wow,I would definately go for the American Jane Bundle:)))))

    —Berit on January 4, 2020
  • I have to choose only ONE sister??? If so it would probably be Barbara B…..or maybe Laurie S…or this is just too hard to choose!

    —Carolyn on January 4, 2020
  • I cannot pick just one "sister." Depends on what I’m wanting to make.

    —Sharon on January 4, 2020
  • Hard to decide my favorite, they’re all great! However, Sandy Klop’s Forever Friends is a beautiful way to use up lots of scraps!

    —Paula T on January 4, 2020
  • I love Martingale and all the wonderful books. This book has so many fabulous choices. My first quilt to make from this book would be by Lisa Alexander. I love the dark and light effect- simple clean lines. Can’t wait to gather up my scraps.

    nancy wilbur on January 4, 2020
  • Susan Ache or Sheryl Johnson are who I "relate" to. Great quilts!

    —Janet T on January 4, 2020
  • Most definitely Laurie Simpson! Her colorful choices are amazing! So talented too! Thank you!

    —Susan Spiers on January 4, 2020
  • Laurie Simpson

    —Janna on January 4, 2020
  • I feel like Laurie Simpson and I share the same aesthetic

    —Robin M on January 4, 2020
  • Laurie Simpson is my choice, although all of the designers met the challenge beautifully. Thank you.

    —Judy on January 4, 2020
  • Oh, I love them all! I think my closest scrap sister would depend on my mood at the time. Scrappy quilts make my heart sing.

    —ML Spell on January 4, 2020
  • Lissa Alexander, or course!

    —Amy Sims on January 4, 2020
  • Lissa Alexander

    —Dana Casebeer on January 4, 2020
  • American Jane is a favorite, but my all time very best favorite is Kim Diehl❤️

    —Lois Capper on January 4, 2020
  • I’m more of an "only child" when it comes to quilting and haven’t developed a sisterhood.

    —Sandy F on January 4, 2020
  • I’m having trouble picking just one. I could be sisters with several. Would love to be chosen!

    —Audrey on January 4, 2020
  • I would identify with bundle #2 love Sheri and what she creates. Fingers crossed.

    —Debra on January 4, 2020
  • I really love them all,

    —Kelly Card on January 4, 2020
  • So many gorgeous quilts to choose from, but I think I identify most closely with Laurie Simpson.

    —Kathy on January 4, 2020
  • They all have merit. However, Susan Ache’s log cabin really speaks to me.

    —Rose-Marie on January 4, 2020
  • The designer closest to my style is Susan Ache!

    Ginny Daly on January 4, 2020
  • I really love them all!

    —Kelly Card on January 4, 2020
  • Great new scrap book. I relate to pattern designers Lissa Alexander and Sheryl Johnson. Love, love Barbara Blackman and civil war and reproduction fabrics. I would love and cherish either giveaway prize if fortunate to be selected. Thank you.

    —Sharon B on January 4, 2020
  • Barbara Brackman’s style suits my sisterhood fine. Loving the book concept. Wish it came with elves [to organize my stash. ;)] as well as the certificate.

    Charlotte Wolfe on January 4, 2020
  • I love what Susan did with the lemoyne star in a log cabin. Beautiful!

    —Frances Claassens on January 4, 2020
  • Sandy Klop is my muse and quilting sister.

    —Gail Mackay on January 4, 2020
  • I couldn’t choose one; that would be like saying one sister is your favorite!

    —Deborah on January 4, 2020
  • I would say probably Lissa Alexander is my quilting "sister"!

    —Susan Griffith on January 4, 2020
  • Tough choice… probably Kim Brackett, I have a couple of her books. But wouldn’t be more fun to have LOTS of ‘quilting sisters’? I consider my sewing group friends as ‘sisters’ that inspire me each week!

    —Gina Milano on January 4, 2020
  • So hard to pick just one. I can see something I might do by each of the ladies. Love the ideas.

    —Cindy F on January 4, 2020
  • Both have beautiful quilts, but probably Shari Johnson is my closer sister.

    —Janine Scott on January 4, 2020
  • Barbara Brackman for sure!

    —Marilyn Schiffmacher on January 4, 2020
  • I probably have something in common with all of the designers. I LOVE working with scraps. I moved 3 years ago and some of my old quilting buddies still send me their scraps. I love to sort through them and try to figure out what they did with them. A couple of times I was able to make small table toppers with the leftovers from their projects. The last pile of scrap I received I was able to make several mug rugs.

    —Linda Ahn on January 4, 2020
  • All the quilts are lovely, but I like Lissa Alexander’s the best.

    —Cathy on January 4, 2020
  • Laurie Simpson

    —Virginia Over on January 4, 2020
  • This book is already on my wish list–it looks awesome! I would say Laurie Simpson is my sewing sister–I’m all about blue and white!

    —Karen D Martin on January 4, 2020
  • Laurie Simpson would be a fit for me. I love doing 4 patches as leaders adn enders. She would be in a good group as I have 6 real sisters. Some quilt and some just love to get quilts!

    —Kathy Gaines on January 4, 2020
  • Lissa would be my quilting buddy and to have a sister that quilts !!!
    Awesome quilts ladies and can’t wait to get this book.

    —Barb Dwyer on January 4, 2020
  • I am so excited to see this book! I love the designs by Liisa Alexander and Susan Ache. I’m such a sucker for Log Cabin Quilts.

    —Angela on January 4, 2020
  • I picked Laurie Simpson because I love blue and white quilts, and Susan Ache because I love old fashioned log cabin quilts. I love scraps, and save too many. I’m running out of room and need to use them! All of the quilts in this book are beautiful!

    —Gail on January 4, 2020
  • I love American Jane fabrics and Sandy Klop designs. Her color choices are bright and colorful and work well in scrap quilts.

    —Susan W on January 4, 2020
  • Lissa Alexander is the closest for me. I love the civil war prints. All of the projects are lovely. This is a great help to me as an intermediate quilter to improve my skills and use my stash! Thank you for such a great help.

    Joanne Brouse on January 4, 2020
  • Lissa Alexander is a favourite of mine!

    —Carole L on January 4, 2020
  • I can’t pick just one since I love scrap quilts whatever the design. Sometimes I like blues and sometimes its every color of the rainbow.

    —Linda Gidos on January 4, 2020
  • Bonnie Hunter. Thank you for the opportunity to win.

    —LoAnn Trowbridge on January 4, 2020
  • I’ve always liked Lissa’s style and sense of color.

    Anne Deister on January 4, 2020
  • I’m a lover of stars and always enjoy any quilt I can make where I squeeze in a star so Susan Ache’s quilt is my favorite.

    —grace allen on January 4, 2020
  • The colors of Laurie Simpson’s Forty-niner quilt is and always has been in my favorite colors. I have always been blues. Love the different quilts shown from the new book. Lovely gems.

    —Carla J on January 4, 2020
  • Closest for me is Lissa Alexander. I love the civil war prints. All of the projects are lovely. This is a great help to me as an intermediate quilter to improve my skills and use my stash! Thank you for such a great help.

    Joanne Brouse on January 4, 2020
  • Lissa Alexander’s style is my style although I do like to challenge myself to learn new techniques.

    —Mary Brott on January 4, 2020
  • I love stars and pinwheels but the Half-Square Hashtags really grabbed me. The color possibilities are endless. I could even see it as a monochromatic, primary three or even a rainbow gradient. Of course all the projects are beautiful and the Scrap Diving will be a must for me given the stars.

    i am in awe of Sheryl Johnson’s scrap drawers…wish mine looked like great. LOL

    —carolynn foged on January 4, 2020
  • I think I identify most with Laurie Simpson based on the number of 4 patch and 9 patch quilts in my past. I love the way she melded the two together and loved the blue!

    —Beth LeDune on January 4, 2020
  • Wow – only one sister?!?!? I have to say, I’ve never really been a fan of log cabin quilts, but Susan Ache’s "Scrap Diving" won me over, and then I scrolled to Lissa Alexander’s "This Little Light of Mine" and fell for it too! Beautiful book and I’m very excited to see it ‘in person!’

    —Cindy Derr on January 4, 2020
  • Looks like another great book from Martingale! I’d have to say that Laurie Simpson would be my quilting sister, which in real life would be AWESOME! I love her designs and style of quilting but I also like many others.

    —Fran Bianchi on January 4, 2020
  • All the quilts & designers are great because they are scrappy and closest in my estimation to the origins of quilting. My favorite was Sandy Klop’s Forever Friends. The Granny Square is a personal favorite of mine.

    —Marlene Sickles on January 4, 2020
  • Laurie Simpson gets my vote. But, I admire all designers for their talents and creativity.

    —Madeline on January 4, 2020
  • Sheryl Johnson – What a great book title and beautifully done book!

    —Sharon Aukland on January 4, 2020
  • Out of the beautiful and talented designers in this batch of quilts, I would have to say Laurie Simpson! Love them all and love Lissa Alexander’s work and books!Thanks, Martingale!

    —Crystal Conrad-Kauffman on January 4, 2020
  • All of the quilts are so pretty. my favorite is Lissa Alexder’s, I am partial to log cabin designs.

    Betty Pitts on January 4, 2020
  • Love all the Minnick and Simpson colors and quilts!

    —Barbara Dillingham Moore on January 4, 2020
  • Kim Brackett is my style sister.

    —Teri N on January 4, 2020
  • All of the quilts are beautiful! Difficult to decide, I would love to be a sister hood with either, both are creative and so talented. The projects are doable also, I love that!

    —Sandy Deininger on January 4, 2020
  • Love all the Moda designers, especially Minnick

    —Barbara Dillingham Moore on January 4, 2020
  • Wow what a wonderful book. All the sister have great designs, but I think I’m closest to Lisa Alexander. To win would be fantastic. Your give aways are always so wonderful.

    —Donna K on January 4, 2020
  • Difficult to say as they are all lovely, but for me probably Forever Friends by Sandy Klop as my scraps are usually lots of different colours so this design would be perfect. Thanks for the chance.

    —Sunnybec on January 4, 2020
  • I connect with Laurie Simpson the most. Her design is scrappy with intent. Her Forty-niner quilt has lots of interest built from the pattern and her fabric selection. I like the impression of complexity the pattern gives, while I’m sure it is quite doable. The colors she chose are perfect.

    —Constance Pentzer on January 4, 2020
  • I was immediately attracted to Scrap Diving by Susan Ache.

    —MoeWest on January 4, 2020
  • Fabulous giveaway!!
    This one is hard, I’m probably a match
    to Laurie Simpson.

    —laura mitchell on January 4, 2020
  • Sheryl would disown me as a sister, or stage an intervention, because my scraps would NEVER be neat like hers. My favorites were the two tops with the orange sherbet diamonds (who designed those?)and then those log cabin blocks by Susan are perky with the red touches in the stars and the binding. I love pops of color. If I won the book I wouldn’t have to make a 2020 resolution to neaten scraps because I’d use them all up, well some of them, they seem to multiply in the dark. Play All Day or Clover Hollow fat quarters would be great! I just KNOW I have scraps to go with them, if I can just find them LOL!

    —Sarah Silk on January 4, 2020
  • Very, very hard to pick just one designer. Maybe Sheryl Johnson?

    —Kathi B on January 4, 2020
  • scrap diving is the one that talked to me! I seem to love Log Cabins and the different ways that they can be done. Love the book…
    Thanks

    Liz Williams on January 4, 2020
  • I love all of them but I think Lissa Alexander would be my pick. I love the happy and cheerful look to her quilt. That is something I could use this time of year in Wisconsin. It would help to get through the doom and gloom we have been having so far this year.

    —Lori T on January 4, 2020
  • Lissa Alexander

    —Marti Morgan on January 4, 2020
  • I love them all, but Laurie Simpson is definitely my style.

    —Karen V. Irey on January 4, 2020
  • Lisa’s Alexander is my favorite! Thanks for the chance!

    —Jill Majers on January 4, 2020
  • Oh wow, another book for my library & this 1 is going to tempt me to make every single quilt in the book. Lissa & Laurie’s patterns talk to me. She may not be in this book but Lisa Bongean is another designer I keep track of.

    Jan on January 4, 2020
  • Laurie Simpson, however all are great quilts and quilters. Wonderful book and love the title.

    —Marilynn on January 4, 2020
  • Lissa Alexander!

    —Jacqueline CELESTINE on January 4, 2020
  • I have always loved scrap quilts and being a quilter for many years now I have a lot of scraps to use. Almost impossible to pick a favorite but I’ve been a fan of Sandy and Laurie for a long time!

    Jody McClain on January 4, 2020
  • Sheryl Johnson is my sewing sister. . .love the Half Square Hashtags quilt!

    —Terry K on January 4, 2020
  • Laurie Simpson even though I love the log cabin take by Lissa Alexander.

    —Fay on January 4, 2020
  • I LOVE them all!!! The colors are wonderful with the designs.

    —Lori on January 4, 2020
  • I LOVE them all!!! The colors are wonderful with the designs.

    —Lori D on January 4, 2020
  • I consider Susan Ache and Lissa Alexander my sisters in scraps. Frequently I find that Susan Ache and I are working on the same scrappy pattern. I admire the way she puts scraps together in a quilt. She is also depressingly fast.

    I love the way Lissa puts scraps together too. She frequently puts fabrics together in ways I wouldn’t have thought of and the result is wonderful.

    Both designers inspire me to try new ways of approaching a patter.

    I also love Sandy Klop’s pattern in this book.

    —Helen Grieve on January 4, 2020
  • I would say Susan Ache. I have always been drawn to her quilts. I have at least one of her books.

    —Brenda Shippy on January 4, 2020
  • Lissa’s design is my favorite.

    —Susan on January 4, 2020
  • Oh boy, that’s a very hard question to answer. I love, love, love the colors that Corey Yoder and Bonnie and Camille use in their fabric lines. However, Kim Diehls quilts just grab at my heart and her color of blue-green is so fabulous. I love Stacy West’s wool applique; it’s so folksy and warm hearted.

    —Geri on January 4, 2020
  • so many fun quilts! I think I’d say Laurie Simpson would be my sewing sister. I love anything with indigo and have lots of her fabrics.

    —Siobhan on January 4, 2020
  • Kim Brackett is my quilt sister; but I love Forty-niner by Laurie Simpson. I need to make a blue and white/cream quilt! Love them.

    —ANN BRASSELL on January 4, 2020
  • Laurie Simpson

    —Judy Sanders on January 4, 2020
  • Susan Ache, I think. I follow her on instagram and have her Christmas book.
    I LUV your new book and can’t wait to get it…thanks for the offer!

    —Arden on January 4, 2020
  • These are all great designs, but I do like Lissa’s interpretations the best…!

    —Helen on January 4, 2020
  • Sheryl Johnson is my hero. Love her stuff and style.

    —Rosemary on January 4, 2020
  • Loved Lisa Alexander’s style! And I have the scraps just waiting for a quilt to call their own…

    —AjjiT on January 4, 2020
  • I love all things Sandy Klop. Her patterns are wonderful and her fabric is to die for.

    —Brenda C on January 4, 2020
  • Wow pick a favorite such a hard questions but I’m going to have to go with Kim Diehl and Edyta Sitar. I have been to a presentation by Edyta and can so relate to her and I am a country girl at heart so really like Kim’s designs.

    —Linda Majer on January 4, 2020
  • Sherri McConnell would be my sewing sister, if I could choose. I love her fabrics and designs.

    —Tammy Jewkes on January 4, 2020
  • I think I’m closest in style to Susan Ache. I really like Scrap Diving!

    —Judy B Bowers on January 4, 2020
  • Lissa Alexander. She used the simple 4 & 9 block plus the longer blocks which I have used in different quilts. Love your blog

    —Sandra Smith on January 4, 2020
  • Love all of the quilts.hard to say that one is better than another. I like Lisa’s and Barbara Brackman. Can’t wait for the book

    —Wanda Hetrick on January 4, 2020
  • These are all great ideas for using scraps! I think the one most drawn to is Susan Ache’s quilt – my quilting "sister"

    —Kresti Lyddon on January 4, 2020
  • It is hard to pick just one, but I think that Sandy Klop’s quilt speaks to me the most.

    —Kay Larson on January 4, 2020
  • I love all the quilts, but especially Susan Ache’s – so lovely.

    —Anita m Turner on January 4, 2020
  • Hard to choose just one but I was doing drawn to Susan Ache’s design and Lissa Alexander’s. Hope I got the names correct.

    —Pat Limburg on January 4, 2020
  • I would love to spend time quilting with all of these ladies. I do like Lisa Alexander’s quilts in this book.

    Chris on January 4, 2020
  • Love Susan Ache’s design!

    —Sandy on January 4, 2020
  • Barbara Brackman!

    —Mary O. on January 4, 2020
  • All of the pictured quilts are kaleidoscopes of color, and make me happy. Now that I’ve got a handle on most of my scraps, creating is so much easier. The first quilt I’d tackle is that great many trips design by Sandy Klop. See, I’m drooling!

    —Bridget Willis on January 4, 2020
  • Lissa and Laurie are close but Susan Ache is the closest to my style.

    —Donna on January 4, 2020
  • I love Kim Brackett’s books so would say I am closer to her way of piecing.

    —Betty Gebhardt on January 4, 2020
  • I’m more a Sandy Klop closet sister.

    —Vickie Keith on January 4, 2020
  • I think the closest to me would be the Clover Hollow. Those colors look like something I would use. I have tons of scraps so would love the book also. Thanks

    Gracie Adams on January 4, 2020
  • Scrap Diving by Susan Ache

    —carol thomas on January 4, 2020
  • I would have to say Lissa and Laurie. Though my list could go on and on…

    —Marie on January 4, 2020
  • Jason Yenter!!!

    —Melody Lutz on January 4, 2020
  • Lissa Alexander is my style of quilter, modest, homey colors!!

    —Bernadette Schultz on January 4, 2020
  • Never mind "sister in scraps"….I would take any of these designers as a "real" sister….we get to "borrow" fabric from their stash, right??
    All kidding aside, this book looks amazing and I have only just started dabbling in scrap quilts and adore them so owning this book and ( I’m not going to lie!) that fabric would be awesome.

    —Monique Adams on January 4, 2020
  • I would need to study the book to give an answer. I love all the quilts.

    —Dixie on January 4, 2020
  • This book looks amazing with wonderful patterns from all the designers! My main style is probably closer to Laurie Simpson but I love to go outside my box and try other styles.

    —Linda Valentino on January 4, 2020
  • I think my "sister" would be Laurie Simpson….love her scrappy traditional quilt she created. Lovely book!

    —Jacque on January 4, 2020
  • There is no way to pick just one! They are all awesome and it depends on my mood and the fabric I want to sew with.

    —Libby on January 4, 2020
  • What an awesome book! I love all the patterns but my ‘sister’ quilter would probably be Laurie Simpson.

    —Linda Valentino on January 4, 2020
  • Minick & Simpson. I love their designs, fabrics and patterns. A long time fan. When I saw the cover for this book I just knew the blue nine patch had to be Laurie’s quilt. It was her style all the way.

    —Jackie Papallo on January 4, 2020
  • Susan Ache, love the combination of blocks. Beautiful book!

    Denise L. on January 4, 2020
  • I believe “American Jane” is my ‘sister from another mother’ — I love the colors and the charming prints!

    —Marti Dyer-Allison on January 4, 2020
  • I like the colors in the Shari and Chelsea bubdke best,

    —Sally on January 4, 2020
  • I have always loved Sandy Klop’s use of color. No matter what the pattern it always looks fresh and new while making me a little nostalgic.

    —Janet Sue Brown on January 4, 2020
  • I try so many different styles it would be hard to choose!

    —Cynthia Ross on January 4, 2020
  • That was supposed to say ‘bundle’ – can someone please correct?

    —Sally on January 4, 2020
  • It’s hard to pick one ‘sister’ when you want to be part of this amazing sister club. I will go with Sheryle Johnson – she gets me when it comes to a teaching style I can follow. I love her Tiny Tree samples – this quilt, I could make.

    —Lynn Darcy on January 4, 2020
  • Love the concept of this book! I think Sheryl Johnson’s style best suits me. Love her use of color.

    —Wendy on January 4, 2020
  • I think Lissa or Laurie would be my sewing sister. All of the quilts are lovely, though.

    —Anne L. Rightler on January 4, 2020
  • Love this book. Lissa is my favorite.

    Judy on January 4, 2020
  • Sandy Klop !!

    —Linda Bick on January 4, 2020
  • The closest ‘sister’ ‘s style that I relate to is Laurie Simpson’s. I like the controlled chaos of the simpler color palette and her classis colors always inspire me.

    —Cheryl on January 4, 2020
  • Love Sheryl Johnson’s work! I do need to add that I simply adore all the scrap whizzes who create something seemingly out of nothing!

    —Marianne N Springer on January 4, 2020
  • I love the Scrap Diving quilt by Susan Ache because I always love star quilts. But it’s really hard to choose because I don’t find many quilts that I don’t love something about.

    —Jean Sierra on January 4, 2020
  • I like all of the designs, so it’s hard to choose – but I’ve loved Lemoyne stars for a long time, so I’d have to go with Susan Ache.

    —Pam on January 4, 2020
  • I can hardly wait to get this book! So many great scrappy quilts! I’m loving the quilt by Laurie Simpson….but also the quilt by Susan Ache! So many great quilt choices!

    —Debbie on January 4, 2020
  • Lissa Alexander and Sandy Klop are my quilting sisters. I love the log cabin (although I’ve never made one, its on my bucket list) and the grandmother’s flower garden, Forever Friends, is calling me quite loudly.

    —Nancy McFall on January 4, 2020
  • I like the shapes Sandy Klop uses w/so many colors & then the repetition of that same shape.

    —PaulaR in GA on January 4, 2020
  • Hard to say which designer! I love Minick and Simpson, Zen Chic andFrench General.

    —Monica H on January 4, 2020
  • I LOVE working with scraps, it is like opening a box of chocolates. You never know, what will come out of it! I have made many charity quilts, with scraps. This book would be a great help, with my ideas for my Sat. Sewcial.

    —Bev Read on January 4, 2020
  • Susan Ache and I share a first name and an obvious love of scrap quilts.

    —Sue Cahill on January 4, 2020
  • It would have to be Laurie Simpson. Love her Forty-miner quilt.

    —Virginia in AK on January 4, 2020
  • Definitely "Play All Day" by American Jane. Love anything that looks old or vintage. You are my sewing sister. Love all that you do.

    —Bettina Kesteloot on January 4, 2020
  • Laurie Simpson. I adore 4-patches and 9-patches!

    —Lill on January 4, 2020
  • I admire Susan Ache’s work but also am drawn to the Hashtag quilt by Sheryl Johnson.

    —Gale W. S. on January 4, 2020
  • Scraps are my favorite fabrics. Don’t think I have ever met a scrap I didn’t like. I will choose if I must. Laurie Simpson and her 30’s. This has nothing to do with the fact that I was born in the 30’s.

    —Mary Boylen on January 4, 2020
  • Wow! I love them all but Lissa’s Little Light Of Mine makes me just think 🤩

    —Karen Phillips on January 4, 2020
  • It has to be Clover Hollow – the colors speak to me!

    —Carol Gearey on January 4, 2020
  • I love the idea of using scraps, of which I have SO many! I think the Play All Day colors would suit my fancy the best. I am not a fan of pastels, but rather like the fall colors, and darker hues in fabric. I usually chalk it. up to being an October baby, but that probably has nothing to do with it! Quilting is my PASSION, as I approach my 82nd birthday, and I hope to finish all my "must do" projects. "Quilt til you wilt."

    —Mary Reed on January 4, 2020
  • I really love Lissa Alexander’s quilt, Friendship Starter. Beautiful quilts in general. Thanks for the giveaway.

    —Lisa E on January 4, 2020
  • Wonderful quilts! If I had to pick one sister, I would say Laurie Simpson….or…Susan Ache, or…uh-oh… I’m stumped!

    —Ellen on January 4, 2020
  • Lissa Alexander – although I like all of them!

    —Laurel Marsolais on January 4, 2020
  • I really love the quilt by Sandy Klop!

    —Patt Bryant on January 4, 2020
  • This is a tough one, but Laurie Simpson just edges out Lissa Alexander as my sewing sister, but really, I just love fabric and colors and patterns, oh my! (to paraphrase Dorothy, there really isn’t one I don’t like in the bunch!)

    —Debbie S on January 4, 2020
  • Love them all, but my favorite is Susan Ache’s quilt. The stars with the log cabin, can’t wait to make that one!

    —Diane McLelland on January 4, 2020
  • I thought it would have been Sheryl Johnson. I’ve made lots of her patterns and loved them all. After reading the blog post, now I think it’s Lissa Alexander. Truthfully, I would be honored to be a quilting sister with any of these talented designers!

    —Cathy Washburn on January 4, 2020
  • What a marvellous new book and a fantastic concept of sisterhood. I have to choose Laurie Simpson – I’m such a big fan of her fabric and quilts.

    —Janet on January 4, 2020
  • I have several designers that I follow that are intentional about using scraps. This year I have started the Traffic Jam blocks by Pat Sloan and the log cabin block by Kimberly Jolly.

    —Debbie on January 4, 2020
  • I like them all, yet think Lissa would be my quilting sister.

    —Diana DeWitt on January 4, 2020
  • I think Laurie Simpson, but I love them all!

    —Sally Comstock on January 4, 2020
  • Thank you so much for the chance to win. I am the scrap collector of my Quilt Guild, the Blessed Peicemakers. I love all these quilts. What great ideas. I guess Lissa Alexander would have to be my “quilty” Sister. It also looks like she never met a scrap worth not saving. What a great book. Gorgeous quilts Sisters 👯

    —Jennifer A on January 4, 2020
  • I’m scrap happy about the quilt with the persimmons in the picture. If I win the book, I’ll tell you who designed it. Second pick is Forever Friends by Sandy Klop.

    Carolyn Temple on January 4, 2020
  • I think my style is closest to Laurie Simpson’s. Would love to have her as a quilting sister!

    —Kathy Swanson on January 4, 2020
  • Laurie Simpson.

    —Kathleen Roslasky on January 4, 2020
  • I love how Susan Ache works with colors and fabrics!

    —Hildy on January 4, 2020
  • Barbara Brackman!! Love all her blogs!

    —Jennifer on January 4, 2020
  • I love them all. I especially like the quilt from Sandy Klop. Thank you for so much inspiration!

    Luiza on January 4, 2020
  • My favorite would be Laurie Simpson. I fell in love with her fabrics even before I knew her name as the designer. l love the color combination and the scrappy look to her quilt!

    —Jean on January 4, 2020
  • I love all of the quilts; especially the ones by Lisa Alexander.

    —Barb Nielson on January 4, 2020
  • I would have to say Bonnie Hunter. Non only has she inspired me to use up the scraps but organization as well.

    —LEOLA Ripperger on January 4, 2020
  • I love the zig zag quilt with the sharp contrast of white and orange. This is the kind of quilt I would make. The other quilts are interesting and have beautiful colors also. I would love to try to make these scrappy quilts. Thanks for the opportunity to win theses fabulous giveaways.

    —Pat on January 4, 2020
  • I love them all, but I will say Shari and Chelsi.

    —Susan L. on January 4, 2020
  • Susan Ache. I like to work backwards, too!

    —Carol W on January 4, 2020
  • I LOVE Bonnie Hunter and have used many of her ideas in my own scrap quilting, but have also seen Tonya Alexander and she inspires me too. Looking forward to more new ideas with this new book.

    —Kathy Harris on January 4, 2020
  • For me, it’s a tie between Laurie and Lissa. I suspect that I chose these two because they have a control about their scrappiness, which I enjoy in my own scrap quilts. What a delightful premise for a book. I can’t wait to read it!

    —Carol on January 4, 2020
  • How can you pick just one? Love them all!

    —Louise M Haddon on January 4, 2020
  • Please enter my name in the drawing. I like Kim Diele

    —Victoria J McDonald on January 4, 2020
  • OMG! I love the quilts in this book and can’t wait to sit down with it. All the designers are amazing so I would be hard pressed to chose one. Thank you all for sharing your love of quilting with your “sister quilters”.

    —KathyW on January 4, 2020
  • I love the wool applique of Lisa Bongean. I also love Kim Diehl and Jo Morton and Bonnie Hunter scraps. However, I have been trying on some new as well to stretch myself as a quilter, like Laura Heine applique. So fun!

    —Linda P on January 4, 2020
  • Lissa Alexander is my closes sister! What a great book.

    —Sharon on January 4, 2020
  • I like anything scrappy (been making scrap quilts for almost 30 years), so this book is right up my alley. And I love 9 patches, so Lissa and Laurie might be my quilting sisters.

    C. Davis on January 4, 2020
  • Sandy Klop and American Jane —-pull at my heart strings and make me smile❤️—-the widest —-it’s always my initial reaction or emotion that makes something pull you toward creating a project with that special fabric that just starts it all!
    Looks like a lovely book and beautiful fabric bundle! Hugs to you and congrats!❤️✂️🧵

    Renee Pasquale on January 4, 2020
  • I think my quilting style is most like Alissa Alexander. Sandy Koop would be a close second. This book looks wonderful!

    —Sandy on January 4, 2020
  • Oops! Darn that auto correct.* Lissa Alexander*

    —Sandy on January 4, 2020
  • I love Denise Schmidt, quilts Alabama Gee’s Bend and the group of Bosna Quilt.
    Daniela

    —daniela on January 4, 2020
  • I think Susan Ache would be my "sister". I love the quilt that she did for the challenge.

    —Joanne L Wilson on January 4, 2020
  • Oh I love this new book and have been thinking about what to do with all my scraps and now I have a plan😃. I love all the quilts in this book as they are all speaking to me! It’s hard to pick just one favorite designer because I feel they should all be recognized as favorites❤️ Thank you so much for creating this book❤️

    —Janette on January 4, 2020
  • I love all the quilts but I really like the blue scrappy quilt by Laurie Simpson. It would look very nice on my bed!

    —Suzie on January 4, 2020
  • I don’t have a favorite. Since I usually only buy remnants instead of collections, I have lots of scraps. I prefer an all-over theme design – not samplers. I also love doing applique floral designs-uses lots of scraps.

    —Judith Carlon on January 4, 2020
  • My closest sister would be Lissa Alexander.

    —Molly Riemann on January 4, 2020
  • I love them all! If I had to choose I would have to say that Half-Square Hashtags by Sheryl Johnson is my favorite.

    —Debbie on January 4, 2020
  • I love these quilts! I think my sisters in scraps are Corey Yoder, Elizabeth Dackson, and Amy Smart.

    —Jean Blythe on January 4, 2020
  • I like the blue and white one by Laurie Simpson, I have made many blue quilts.

    —Barbara Diaczynsky on January 4, 2020
  • Kim Brackett always

    —Regina on January 4, 2020
  • I love anything scrappy but I think Lissa Alexander’s quilts tend to resonate with me more but I am not sure why. I love the scrap drawer idea in this post as well as all the other quilts–who can pick just one? Thanks for the opportunity to enter to win this fabulous book and fabric.

    —Jeanne P on January 4, 2020
  • I haven’t quilted enough to have a style so it is hard for me to pick one. I like everything in the blog so I guess I would say Lissa.

    —Jackie Lewis on January 4, 2020
  • Sandy Klop. Really fell for her Forever Friends.

    —Nelle on January 4, 2020
  • Sister Sandy Klop

    —Pauline C on January 4, 2020

    —Jeanette S on January 4, 2020
  • I Love Civil War quilts and fabric collections so my favorite designers are Barbara Brackman and Betsy Chutchin

    —Kim Leachman on January 4, 2020
  • All the sisters are unique and love all their designs. I think I would pick Lissa Alexander. this looks like a wonderful book.

    —Susan Stone on January 4, 2020
  • I love American Jane quilts

    —Joan Baylor on January 4, 2020
  • Barbara Brackman

    —Denise Campbell on January 4, 2020
  • Sandy Klop

    —Lori on January 4, 2020
  • I can’t really pick one as I tend to be all over the board…but ModaLissa is definitely a fav!

    —Betty Liehr on January 4, 2020
  • This is so hard because I live them all. Sandy Klop is my choice today. Lisa Alexander will probably be tomorrow and the next day…

    —Selma Sappenfield on January 4, 2020
  • Jane Klop is my style sister because of her love for bright happy colors and sweet designs.

    —Barbara Snyder on January 4, 2020
  • It’s hard to choose just one, but if I have to, I would say Kim Brackett. I have all her books, and just love her style.

    —Sharon Sauser on January 4, 2020
  • Laurie Simpson is my quilt sister as her blues and whites combination tugs at my heart.

    —Lowella Murray on January 4, 2020
  • I would have to say Laurie because I love her scrappy but not totally random (all blue scraps) as more my style. I get nervous adding too many colors to a scrap quilt. It looks messy to me when I do it. Other people pull it off great! Jadahlgr at yahoo dot com

    —Cindy Dahlgren on January 4, 2020
  • Lissa is my sister of choice. I started quilting in the ‘70s I have always made “scrap” quilts, ie quilts using many fabrics. I love all her quilts! This new book looks like it will be full of inspiration and rank right up there with “Oh scrap” my all time favorite quilt book.

    —Neena kirsch on January 4, 2020
  • I really love Susan Ache designs and use of color-lots of color!

    —Debra Miller on January 4, 2020
  • I love the variety but I particular like the one by Lissa Alexander. Love scrap quilts.

    —Gloria Meyer on January 4, 2020
  • I love Lissa Alexander’s patterns but in this book, I really love Forever Friends by Sandy Klop

    —Trish P. on January 4, 2020
  • I love Lissa Alexander’s patterns but in this book I really like Forever Friends by Sandy Klop.

    —Trish P. on January 4, 2020
  • My style gravitates towards Lissa Alexander’s quilts, but I aspire to be as organized as shown in Sheryl Johnson’s drawer, plus I like her Half Square Hashtags design.

    —SandyMay on January 4, 2020
  • I can’t choose just one style. All are welcome into my sisterhood circle.

    —Cassy L. on January 4, 2020
  • Lissa Alexander would be my choice. Love the way she uses scraps.

    —Jan Horn on January 4, 2020
  • Sheryl Johnson, love her quilt’s.

    —Anne Marie Grefsrud on January 4, 2020
  • I think Lisa Alexander’s log cabin quilt made in the primitive colors is my style. I really make quilts in every style but my color choice is usually more primitive. I do make 30s reproduction quilts and other style print quilts also. I am really known for my realistic art landscape quilts. I love all these and I will definitely make at least one scrap quilt this year.

    —Barbara Daniel on January 4, 2020
  • Lissa Alexander, although I could get along to any of them!!

    —Cristina on January 4, 2020
  • I’d have to say Sandy Klop, not because I like hers the best–although I really, really like the idea of a quilt that looks like a granny square afghan–but because I tend to choose dark colors as she did. They are all gorgeous, however!

    —Carol Weber on January 4, 2020
  • Lissa Alexander

    —Cristina on January 4, 2020
  • I just can’t decide! I like all the scrappy quilts in this book.

    —Margaret Kennedy on January 4, 2020
  • I LOVE all of these scrap quilts and it is almost impossible to choose just one favorite! If forced, I guess I would pick the one from Sandy Klop, but I do love them all! I guess I just have to get the book so I can drool over – or make – all of them!

    —Joan on January 4, 2020
  • What a great book! Think Lissa Alexander is one I lean toward. Like them all !

    —Marilyn Fite on January 4, 2020
  • Laurie simpson is a favorite quilter of mine.

    —Margaret Dalmer on January 4, 2020
  • Possibly Susan, i love red. But really i can learn from all of them!

    —Ginger on January 4, 2020
  • My quilt sister would be Lissa Alexander. I love al the work from all the designers as well. Thank you for this opportunity!

    —Lori on January 4, 2020
  • Forty-niner, by Laurie Simpson. Squares, yes…
    Blues, whites and creams are my favorite

    —Susan on January 4, 2020
  • I’m not sure which designer would be my scrap sister, because I like ALL of the quilts shown!

    Barb Johnson on January 4, 2020
  • I love them all but guess I would choose Lissa. This looks like a book I would really enjoy.

    Dolores on January 4, 2020
  • This is a hard question to answer. It’s like asking a mother which is her favorite child. I’m drawn to several types of quilts, and have made quilts designed by several of these designers. I also like to take ideas from others and tweak them to make a quilt that is uniquely mine. With that said, I have been inspired often by Laurie Simpson, Sandy Klop and Lissa Alexander.

    —Lerlene Nevaril on January 4, 2020
  • I like to make different kinds of quilts. But I think Laurie Simpson is more akin to me. I’m looking forward to book.

    —Carol Santos on January 4, 2020
  • Lissa Alexander’s Friendship Starter. What a fun way to share our passion with our "sisters".

    —Judy P. on January 4, 2020
  • My sister would be Lissa. We make the backs similar in using up all extra blocks and parts and pieces.

    —Vicky on January 4, 2020
  • I think I am most like Laurie Simpson because blue has been my favorite color for over 60 years…..and I love blue quilts!!!

    —Carol Nemeth on January 4, 2020
  • What a wonderful array of beautiful quilts! Lissa is my sewing sister. I would certainly love to win this drawing.

    —Joan Hanson on January 4, 2020
  • That’s a tough questions, but I think my favorite of this group would definitely be Lissa. I loved Oh Scrap! and can’t wait to get a copy of this book too!

    —Julie Kennedy on January 4, 2020
  • Laurie Simpson. I love anything with a 4 patch and or a 9 patch.

    Mayme on January 4, 2020

  • Sandy Klop, Kim Brackett. I love lots of scraps in my quilts.

    —Wilma on January 4, 2020
  • They are all beautiful, BUT the designer that is nearest and dearest to my heart would be Sandy Klop. I love American Jane fabrics and patterns. They take me back to a simpler place in my life, the fun childhood days with no worries.

    —ASHLEY DEASEY on January 4, 2020
  • I absolutely loved Susan Ache’s quilt, loved the lemoyne star in the middle and then a log cabin quilt. It was inspiring.

    —Fran Claassens on January 4, 2020
  • What a great idea! My favorite is the quilt by Laurie Simpson, but they all appeal to me.

    —Terry Donati on January 4, 2020
  • Laurie Simpson!

    —Lydia de Mooij on January 4, 2020
  • I love so many of the designers, but I really like Sandy Klop’s style and happy colors!

    —Pamela D Miller on January 4, 2020
  • Love how colorful “this little light of mine” is by Lisa Alexander! Color always attracts me!

    —Judy Gieselman on January 4, 2020
  • I love all of these quilts and am always looking for ways to use up my scraps. I just got my sewing closet organized and can’t wait for my next project. Of these quilts, I think I like Lissa’s best. And prize #1 would be my first choice!

    —Marilyn Beckley on January 4, 2020
  • I like all the quilts, but Laurie Simpson’s color choices and block placement is very much my style. I love using scraps. My 2020 goal is to complete 33 quick scrappy quilts to help clean up my "garage ‘o fabric" and give one to each niece and nephew for Christmas. I am almost half way there (but I cheated and started before 2020.

    —Barb Frahm on January 4, 2020
  • I do think that Susan Ache would be my ‘sister’.
    But I love all the other quilts.

    —Patricia Hersl on January 4, 2020
  • Oh, those quilts look like fun! I Quilt in all different styles. It’s fun to explore.

    —Nyla-Jean de Boer on January 4, 2020
  • Lissa would definitely be my quilt sister.

    —Debra on January 4, 2020
  • I am a “quilt maker dreamer”. One day I will make a quilt I think winning these precuts and book would push me over the quilting edge. I go through your emails making wish list. I am collecting material and buying books on quilting. I even took sewing machine lessons. So my head is exploding with information I just have to push my hands to get to moving. You have a great website It certainly inspires me. Keeping my fingers crossed I am the winner of number one fabric and book package That would be a dream

    —Patti quinn on January 4, 2020
  • Susan Ache is the sister I wish I was. What a dynamo! And I love that book and bundle from Sherry and Chelsi.

    —Tracie on January 4, 2020
  • I actually am drawn to two of the quilters scrap quits. Susan Ache and Lissa Alexander quilts both caught my eye and maintained my interest. It is fun to see what can be done with all of those scraps.

    —Lynn on January 4, 2020
  • Sandy Klop is closest to me of these six designers. I love her bright, cheerful quilts and took a class from her when I lived in CA. She is a delight.

    —Janet on January 4, 2020

    —Michelle on January 4, 2020

    —Lee MacAdam on January 4, 2020
  • Lisa Alexander has my number. However, I would enjoy exploring the other designers scrappy quilts.

    Kristir on January 4, 2020
  • Love scrap quilring!

    —Lucy DeWitt on January 4, 2020
  • OMG< how do you even begin to pick one. They are all spectacular, but if I had to choose one it would be Forty Niner by Lauri Simpson only because I am very much into blue this year. I have to wait to order the book because I hope to win it (LOL) Have a great year,
    Happy Quilting,
    Sue Murray

    —sue murray on January 4, 2020
  • I would choose Susan Ache. I adore log cabin quilts and love making them! They say Home to me! Thank you for the chance to win this book and wonderful fabrics!

    —Sherill V on January 4, 2020
  • Either Laurie or Alissa. What a beautiful book. I love the quilts.

    —Cindy Strauss on January 4, 2020
  • The closest sister stitcher in this book would be American Jane with Play all day fabric which is how I feel when I`m sewing on my machine.

    —Clare on January 4, 2020
  • I love the quilt by Susan Ache….just right up my alley!

    —Sherry Moran on January 4, 2020

    —Cassy on January 4, 2020
  • Lissa Alexander is right on point with her quilt, I make many log cabin and Courthouse steps quiltsto use my smallest pieces, her quilt would be my first choice to make, Thank you for the opportunity to share the book, its certainly going to be added to my collection. From a very Burnt Australia. i make Hero Quilts for families grieving the loss of a service person, with three firefighter being killed in this terrible Fire season, the scraps will be getting a good workout. Thanks.

    —Denise Smith on January 4, 2020

    —Venita Wilcox on January 4, 2020

    —Pam W on January 4, 2020
  • In Color similarities, Laurie Simpson must be my sister-by-another-mother. I love her color choices and think any of her quilts could happily live in my house.

    —Stephanie L. on January 4, 2020
  • I really like this book and all the wonderful quilts to help use up my stash. Very hard to choose just one sister. Sheryl Johnson would be a sister

    —Robin on January 4, 2020
  • Unfair to have to pick! So, I won’t!!

    —Diana O on January 4, 2020
  • I don’t think I’m close in style to any of them, but I’d love to be adopted! Each of them use design and color so incredibly well. I’d love to learn to do each of those better.

    —Karen S on January 4, 2020
  • Hard to pick one style! I have lots of “sisters” and love all our styles.

    —Carina Z on January 4, 2020
  • Laurie Simpson is my favorite sewing sister! I love the colors she uses and her style!

    —Kim Reid on January 4, 2020
  • This is definitely a book I will OWN, one way or another! Since I love 4- and 9-patches, Laurie’s style stole my heart.

    —Nancie Voegele on January 4, 2020
  • I like Laurie Simpson or Susan Ache’s styles. However, I am a scrapaholic so like all the patterns.

    —Kaye Davis on January 4, 2020
  • Would love to win this prize. There are so many sisters of quilting that I like that it would be hard to name just one

    —mary johnson on January 4, 2020
  • I like Joanna Figueroa’s style of quilts and fabrics. There are just so many great designers to choose from, that I like them all!

    —Valerie on January 4, 2020
  • Lissa Alexander. Love her color combinations

    —Becky on January 4, 2020
  • I loved them all!! I am far from a designer; however, I love the design of Lissa Alexander. I love her attention to details, and how she carry-forward the scrappy look on the back of the quilt. It’s like two designs in one…Brilliant!

    —Carrie L on January 4, 2020
  • All of these quilts are great. Lissa would be my sister in quilting. I have already made several quilts with her patterns and would like to make more.

  • I love Lissa Alexander’s blocks and the Play All Day line of fabrics!!

    —Patricia L Kaiser on January 4, 2020
  • Lissa Alexander is closest to my style. I would LOVE to be a winner on this one. I love the quilts in your new book AND I love the way you challenged the sisters to create a quilt that you then made in your own colorways. Very cool

    —Elle on January 4, 2020
  • When I saw "This Little Light of Mine" I said ‘I have to make it!’. Lissa and I share DNA, must check that. All are great and would love the book and fabric.

    —Pat Mosley on January 4, 2020
  • I think I would have all of them for sisters! Love the looks of the new book.

  • I love the colors in Lissa’s quilts.

    Thank you Lissa for such an exciting book.

    —Joan P on January 4, 2020
  • Scrap Diving by Susan Ache is my favorite.

    —Kathy Pennell on January 4, 2020
  • If I can only pick one, it would be Lissa.

    —Deanna Loder on January 4, 2020
  • Oooh, how can I possibly choose a favorite sister?!? Well, I guess if I have to . . . It would be Laurie Simpson. I never met a blue I didn’t like. And then add in some cream and a bit of red and you have a little slice of heaven.

    —Linda Frost on January 4, 2020
  • I have known Sheryl Johnson before she owned her shop, published quilt books , or designed fabric.
    I have to say she is my sewing sister.

    —Charlotte Schindler on January 4, 2020
  • Well I like them both but I will pick Lissa. happyness04431@yahoo.com

    —Anna brown on January 4, 2020
  • I already have Lissa’s book, "Oh,Scrap!" And just LOVE IT!! Previously, I had trouble being "scrappy", but that book helped me begin using my scrap pile. So, the designer I am most like would have to be Lissa, as she helped me find my scrap muse.

    —Leta Wellman on January 4, 2020
  • So hard to choose just one!
    I love Lissa’s vision with this book.
    But a quick browse of my bookshelf tells me it must be Kate Henderson, since I have all of her books.

    —Stephanie on January 4, 2020
  • Lissa Alexander

    —Kathy Timmons on January 4, 2020
  • Love this new book of yours, Lissa! I like your style, Laurie Simpson’s & Susan Ache’s to best match my style. In your book, so far my favorite quilt shown & explained is Laurie Simpson’s Forty-Niner because it’s blue & white! Blue is my fave color! I love, love love the fat quarter bundle from Shari & Chelsi, Clover Hollow. Thanks, Martingale & Moda for this opportunity. Great giveaway!

    —Jan Behm on January 4, 2020
  • Lisa Alexander’s is so pretty. Love several of the others also. Great group of quilt patterns.

    —Deborah Horne on January 4, 2020
  • I love all gals,but I am a scrap quilter. All the quilts were awesome!

    —Cheryl on January 4, 2020
  • I admire Susan Ache’s quilts but I sure do like Laurie Simpson’s too.

    —Peggy Savage on January 4, 2020
  • I love everything Lissa does, but I am drawn to Susan Ache in this book. I LOVE
    LeMoyne stars and so few people do them. Looking forward to the book.

    —Marsha K on January 4, 2020
  • Moda Lissa

    —Alison Almquist on January 4, 2020
  • Oh, I think that the lightness of Lissa’s work suits my style, but I appreciate the work of so many in this book.

    —Linda on January 4, 2020
  • Ihave many sisters. Sandy Klop was probably my first sister with Lissa Alexander and Susan Ache following close as twin sisters.

    —colleen on January 4, 2020
  • I think Lissa Alexander would be my "scrap sister" as her quilt style is closest to mine.

    —Donna Dieter on January 4, 2020
  • The friendship starter by Lissa caught my eye as the perfect project for my collection if charm & mini-charm packs.

    —Teri G on January 4, 2020
  • Laurie Simpson catches my design interest. Monochromatic quilts can have lots of movement and interest when using the variety scraps provide. I also like sorting my scraps into light, medium and dark and pulling a color I have a lot of from each to use as a design starting point.

    —Barbara Colvin on January 4, 2020
  • It’s so hard to just pick one. It all depends on my mood and today I’m leaning to Laurie Simpson’s quilt.

    —Judyk on January 4, 2020
  • I love Susan Ache’ s style of quilting. Her lemoyne star and log cabin quilt is brilliant!

    —Kaye Mattson on January 4, 2020
  • I love the quilts by Lissa Alexander.

    —Lois Becker on January 4, 2020
  • I like them both too much to pick just one!

    —Kathy R on January 4, 2020
  • I love so many of the designers, I can’t pick just one. It depends on my mood! Someday I want the warm, cozy feeling from Kansas Troubles and Lynne. Another day it might be clear, bright colors like Chelsi and Shari give us. I truly can say there is not much that I don’t like. Hmmm, that just creates a whole other problem!! Great book, I really like many of the quilts.

    —Carmen on January 4, 2020
  • The quilt by Klop appealed to me the most.

    —Myra M McFarland on January 4, 2020
  • I would have to say Lissa Alexander.

    —Teresa Brown on January 4, 2020
  • Love the log cabin quilt! All the quilters are wonderful and unique but if I would have to choose one Susan Ache would be closest to my favorite.

    —Leah Pupp on January 4, 2020
  • That is hard I love them all but if I can only pick one … Laurie Simpson would be my sister but all sisters are great

    —Lisa H on January 4, 2020
  • I’m not familiar with any of these quilters but that quilt by Sandy Klop is fabulous!

    —Judith Martinez on January 4, 2020
  • They’re all amazing but Laurie Simpson’s is my favourite.

    —Jean on January 4, 2020
  • Barbara Brackman could be my sewing sister!

    —carmen on January 4, 2020
  • I’m not sure who designed the zig zag quilts on pages 12-14 but I love them! It doesn’t look as intimidating as the other quilts so I’m pretty sure I could complete that with either the scrappy look or like the orange and cream. All of them are very beautiful. GG

    —Gina Growe on January 4, 2020
  • This would be a great book to try some new scrappy designs. Challenge oneself too. Scrappy-What’s not to love? The Blue with the Brick border really caught my eye!

    D. Joy Summers on January 4, 2020
  • Yoko Saito is the genius I would most like to emulate. I am nowhere near her skill and artistry.

    —Suellen James on January 4, 2020
  • Susan Ache

    —Mary Reid on January 4, 2020
  • Each designer stands on their own…. Amazing creations with scraps!! I would lean toward Laurie Simpson if I am to pin it down to one who comes close to my ‘sister’ scrap quilter!

    —Linda on January 4, 2020
  • I like Sandy Klop’s quilt, so colorful.

    —Cynthia on January 4, 2020
  • I believe the “sister” quilter for me would be JoAnna Figueroa because I love her color palette. Very few designers use orange in their collections, and it happens to be one of my favorite colors. Hers is a soft orange that speaks to me, and is easy to fit into many different projects. Her patterns are unique and well written.
    Thanks for this awesome giveaway opportunity!

    —Deborah Andry on January 4, 2020
  • I would say Kim Bracket. Such pretty quilts!

    Jocelyn on January 4, 2020

    —Helen Potts on January 4, 2020
  • I love all the different designs and styles, but if I had to pick just one style sister it would probably be Laurie Simpson.

    —Amanda Best on January 4, 2020
  • Lissa Alexander’s quilts are the designs that appeal most to me. I love scrap quilts.

    —Nelda Mohr on January 4, 2020

  • I would say Laurie but I love all of the quilts.

    —Christi on January 4, 2020

  • Love scrappy quilts. These are fabulous. I like Sheryl Johnson

    —Rachel on January 4, 2020

  • I love to use scraps so Barbara Brackman is nearer to my taste.

    —Arlena Hickman on January 4, 2020

    —Leslie P. on January 4, 2020
  • I love little pieces and log cabin blocks so I’m choosing Lissa’s quilt as my favorite. It will be the first pattern from the book that I’ll make. Setting log cabin blocks on point: Genius!

    —Pauline Fisher on January 4, 2020
  • Choices….choices….ack! I change my mind every three seconds, but I do have a serious blue problem and I love my little squares so I would make the Forty-Niner in a heartbeat, going with Laurie Simpson.

    —Suzanne B on January 4, 2020
  • Fabulous displays of these beautiful quilts.

    —Julia on January 4, 2020
  • I think Laurie Simpson’s style is the most like my own. Definitely not saying my work is anywhere close to hers, but I am drawn to hers. Simple blocks, but used in unique ways to make a very lovely quilt. And it’s blue!!!!!

    —Linda H. on January 4, 2020
  • I don’t have a special but I’d like to make the one by Sheryl Johnson called Half-Square Hashtags. I just love scrap quilts.

    Sandra Pardue on January 4, 2020
  • This is tough as I like so many of them! I love Lissa Alexander, Corey Yoder, Kim Diehl just to name a few. What a wonderful book. Laurie Simpson’s indigo quilts are awesome.

    —Grace Thorne on January 5, 2020
  • It is difficult to pick a fav. I’ll go with Susan Ache because by coincidence I recently ran across one of her patterns called Plus Postage in an old magazine (APQ, April 2016) and have started making it.

    Cathy Labath on January 5, 2020
  • Do I have to pick just one?? Scrap quilts are my thing, I want to make them all. Lissa Alexander or maybe Susan Ache, or Kim Bracket or Kim Diehl.

I too am determined to use my scraps (already organized by size and color) and that stash that never seems to go away so I can buy new fabric.

    —Dolores Feagin on January 5, 2020
  • Must be Lissa as I love This Little Light of Mine.

    —Ann on January 5, 2020

  • It’s so hard to choose! I love Lissa quilt in the post — I"m a beginner, and it’s so inspiring to read these stories. Thanks for the chance.

    —AMY MYERS on January 5, 2020
  • Joan Ford got me hooked on cutting my fabric scraps and being organized. I love the designs of many but I had to get started somewhere…

    —Beth Byerssmall on January 5, 2020
  • Out of the quilts shown, it’s a toss-up between Lissa Alexander and Laurie Simpson. They are all lovely and boy, do I have the scraps to use up!

    —Karen Christensen on January 5, 2020
  • I would have to pick either Laurie Simpson (love blue and white/cream quilts) or Sandy Klop, as I’d love to use up some of the scraps in my stash!

    —Dottie MACOMBER on January 5, 2020
  • I love Laurie Simpson’s blue and white quilt this time around.i have been a scrap quilter since forever but right now crave the clearness of multi versions of one color and the cleaness of white white.

    —Dorothy on January 5, 2020
  • Susan Ache!!

    —Sharon on January 5, 2020
  • The designer of Friendship Starter, by Lissa Alexander, seems to closely match my scrap quilting style. I would love to win this book, "Sisterhood of Scraps." If you look at my Facebook photo albums you’ll see my scrappy quilting style (Becky Verpoorten Leitl). Scrap quilting is a passion of mine and my generous quilting friends often pass their leftover scraps to me for my charity quilting efforts. Quilters are so generous. My husband wishes the flow if incoming scraps would slow down (chuckle).

    —Becky Leitl on January 5, 2020
  • Lissa Alexander because that log cabin is making me crazy with desire!!!

    —Elizabeth Bolton on January 5, 2020
  • I absolutely love Laurie Simpson’s blue and white quilt–lots of squares! Of course, I love stuff by Lissa Alexander, too! Let’s face it–I’m a scrap-a-holic and love it all!!

    —Julie Shirley on January 5, 2020
  • The blue and white quilt speaks to me–therefore, Laurie Simpson must be my sewing sister! However, I love playing in the scraps, and all these quilts appeal to my scrappy interests.

    —Julie Shirley on January 5, 2020
  • I’ve never seen anything of Lissa’s that I didn’t really like! She’d be my Sister of Choice!

    —Jan davis on January 5, 2020
  • My Quilt Sister Twin is all of you! I want to make everything that I see you design! I am a traditional gal, but have started to pull in some modern elements. Thank you for the new book full of ideas!

    —Paulette on January 5, 2020
  • I love Friendship Starter by Lissa Alexander. I am very particular, even when scrap quilting. I save all scraps of my past quilts so making the scrap quilt is a walk down memory lane for me.

    —dalynne singleton on January 5, 2020
  • Lisa Alexander, but it was very hard to choose just one

    —Linda on January 5, 2020
  • Lissa Alexander would be be my first choice for a sister but Susan Ache would be right up there with Lissa.

    —Sylvia on January 5, 2020
  • Love the quilts in your new book. Also I love working with scraps
    Thank you for all the new ideas.

    —Millie Benroth on January 5, 2020
  • Definitely had my eye on this book. My favorites are the zig zags, not sure of the designer and Laurie Simpson’s 4 and 9 patches. I like your brighter, multi-colored option even more.

    —Karen on January 5, 2020
  • I love Forever Friends by Sandy Klop because it has so much color. All of the designs are great and may have to be tried sometime in my lifetime.

    —Dianne Bishop on January 5, 2020
  • Lisa’s Alexander’s quilt really caught my eye!, However, I do love them all!

    —Mary Tague on January 5, 2020
  • My quilting sister is Barbara Brackman. Not only do we share the love of the Civil War era, but us gray hair sisters just have to stick together.

    —Jody Rogers on January 5, 2020
  • I’d say Lissa picked out some pretty good sisters! All these designers are calling my name, so I’d have to roll a die to choose just one. Scrappy quilts are the best quilts, and this looks like a whole book of best!

    —Gayle M on January 5, 2020
  • My quilting sister would have to be Barbara Brackman. Not only do we share the love of the Civil War era but our grey hair besides.

    —Jody Rogers on January 5, 2020
  • Sandy Klop. I love American Jane, it reminds me of the 30’s.

    —Debbie G on January 5, 2020
  • Lissa Alexander and I could be "sisters" if comparing the back of our quilts. Love that scrappy look!

    —Marietta Herinckx on January 5, 2020
  • I love the style of Laurie Simpson. I love her fabrics.

    —Alana Lerwill on January 5, 2020
  • Sandy Klop’s quilt most fits my style!

    —Kerrie on January 5, 2020
  • Wow, I love fabric scraps, from small scraps the most amazing items are made. My sisterhood designer would be Sheryl Johnson, loved Sheryl’s quilt, cheers Suzanne

    —Suzanne Jenssen on January 5, 2020
  • Kim Diehl and Kim Brackett!

    —Darlene B on January 5, 2020
  • My sister would be Barbara Brackman, I enjoy the stories that are in a lot of the old quilts and learning the history of the times when these quilts were made.

    —Sandra Campbell on January 5, 2020
  • There are many as some scrap quilts in this book but I identify most with those by Alissa.

    —Reta Haube on January 5, 2020
  • I really liked the quilt by Sandy Kloop. I would think making it would use up lots of scraps!! The book looks amazing!

    —Suzanne Williams on January 5, 2020
  • I have and enjoy many of Kim Brackett’s books so I’d say she is my closest style-sister. This looks like a wonderful book!

    —Lisa England on January 5, 2020
  • I like them all but I have to go with Lissa Alexander.

    —Joyce Jose on January 5, 2020
  • Lissa would be my favorite because I love her book "oh, scrap." 🙂

    —Elaine M on January 5, 2020
  • I love appliqué so Perla Piera from P3 designs has my style. This year I’m going to focus on piecing since needleturn appliqué does consume the majority of my time. I just finished a pieced blue and white quilt for my January display but I’m going to add some snowflakes on it, bit raw edge this time

    —Betsy Lewis on January 5, 2020
  • I think I favor Kim Brackets designs Susan Aches quilt was my favorite shown. Great use of scraps. I really like fabric pack #2. Thank you

    Marlene Sapa on January 5, 2020

    —Cynthia on January 5, 2020

    Su

    —Su Palmer on January 5, 2020
  • Actually, I am a "wanna be" in the above sisterhood. They are all so talented! I really like Laurie Simpson’s 4 & 9 patch and the half square hash tag.

    —Yolanda on January 5, 2020
  • I like the American Jane set up. Thanks for the giveaway!

    —Sunnie on January 5, 2020
  • Lissa Alexander is the author I favor. Her log cabin quilt is wonderful and I would love to make it.

    —beth d. on January 5, 2020
  • This book looks great! I like all the quilts you showed but would probably say Sandy Klop’s Forever Friends. Thanks for a chance to win a copy.

    —Sandi on January 5, 2020
  • I love Sheryl Johnson’s quilting

    —Relwyn Brimelow on January 5, 2020
  • I loved Sheryl Johnson half square hastags because it is energetic, fun and alive with color. I have to admit, I make up my own language, so Barbara Brackman must be my "special sister" for we think alike, ha ha. Happy Quilting all!

    —Margie Knudsen on January 5, 2020
  • Lissa Alexander is the sister I never had. I really missed having sisters, I’m sure it is a special bond.

    —Stephanie Woodward on January 5, 2020
  • There are so many talented designers it is hard to choose. I love every Barbara Brackman quilt that I have seen, so I will choose her.

    —Rhonda Best on January 5, 2020
  • What a great collection of scrap quilts! I love them all, especially Laurie Simpson’s quilt. Thanks for the fantastic giveaway.

    —Bonnie on January 5, 2020
  • This book looks like a great collaboration of quilt designers. However since I have known Sheryl Johnson for over 27 years, (since I moved to Temecula) I would say she has been a "Sisterhood" of inspiration.

    —Annette F. on January 5, 2020
  • This little light of mine deserves to be the first quilt I make from the book. All the men folks will want it. So beautiful all the quilts that will become heirlooms!

    —Peggy Meathenia on January 5, 2020
  • I admire Barbara Brackman’s designs & wealth of knowledge!

    —Pamela Reim on January 5, 2020
  • Lissa Alexander…..I love her patterns and have several of her books!

    —Judith Rizzo on January 5, 2020
  • I wanna be quilty sisters with all of you! I feel so much inspiration from each of the quilts show above! If I had to choose, maybe Laurie Simpson might be my closest sister, but I feel a connection to all of the designs!

    —Heather G on January 5, 2020
  • I will say Susan Ache because it looks like she uses a controlled scrappy method.

    —Karen Seitz on January 6, 2020
  • I love the Friendship starter, well to be honest, love all of them. The colors used in the quilt go well with today’s sunny winter-day giving it some sparkle. Thank you for this great giveaway. Happy New Year

    Elisbeth Pluut on January 6, 2020
  • Lissa Alexander.

    —JoAnne Hawks on January 6, 2020
  • Susan Ache, I’ve actually sewn a quilt similar to the one shown here. Thank you!

    Danette Stankovich on January 6, 2020
  • I would have to say that Susan Ache would be my "sister" because I like to have a more controlled scrappy and often can see what type of quilt I want to make from looking at a particular group of fabrics.

    —Annette Canonica on January 6, 2020
  • Lissa and Sheryl, if the sample quilts are anything to go by! I love traditional with new fabrics, and controlled scrappiness: meaning each block is controlled, but each block can be different colorway or patterns! I always try and use up extra blocks and larger pieces of the fabric in the backings. Heaven knows I need a use for all my scrap bags I can’t bear to throw away! Hmmm, the Hashtag one would be great with my Tula Pink box of pieces!

    —Sharon S on January 6, 2020
  • The Forever Friends quilt really spoke to me. All of those beautiful fabrics in one place…like a scrapbook of my journey as a quilter and all of the wonderful friends I have made and lessons learned. Thank you!

    —Corinne L Carroll on January 6, 2020
  • Sheryl Johnson’s scrap drawer is an inspiration to me. What a great book.

    —Cindy on January 6, 2020
  • Wow, love all the great quilt creations made from scraps!! I have tubs of scraps from my own quilts and from the quilts I make to donate. Thanks for the opportunity to maybe win the "Sisterhood of Scraps" book.

    —Marie Dieck on January 6, 2020

    —Rilla Burnham on January 6, 2020
  • My closest "sister in quilting" (of those contributing to this book) would be Sheryl Johnson. All of these quilts are beautiful! Great book, Lissa!

    —Diane Beavers on January 6, 2020
  • Sandy Koop! I like her style

    —Linda Ferguson on January 6, 2020

    —Maria Barr (Maria in Tucson) on January 6, 2020
  • It would have to be Laurie Simpson. Her style of quilts, her patterns, and her fabrics really inspire me.

    —Carmel Barbridge on January 6, 2020

    —Joanne Groves on January 6, 2020
  • Lissa Alexander is my ‘sister’ though I think they all qualify! Looking forward to reading this new book and making more scrap quilts…who doesn’t love a scrap quilt!

    —Diane N. on January 7, 2020
  • Right now I could probably make each of these quilts. I inherited a pile of scraps and had a few (cough, cough) of my own. I really like Friendship starter and would start there and make my way through the book.

    —Joni on January 8, 2020

  • Love them all! I would probably pick Laurie Simpson.

    —Roberta Adams on January 10, 2020
  • Lissa Alexander is the "sister" for me. It does not matter what she has created I have loved everything she touches and puts together! Thank you Martingale for your efforts in creating these awesome books as well.

    —Michelle Hild on January 10, 2020
  • They’re all great but I think Lissa Alexander’s and Sandy Klop’s are my favourites.

    —Elaine on January 10, 2020
  • Love all the designers! So much great color, variety of design. A must have book for quilters!

    —Anne on January 10, 2020
  • Laurie Simpson would be my quilting sister!

    —Linda Haan on January 10, 2020
  • I have always loved Susan Ache’s designs, I just bought her book "Quilt by Color: Scrappy Quilts with a Plan", so she would be my fave sister. But Lissa Alexander is up there as well.

    —HelenT on January 10, 2020
  • I like Laurie Simpson’s pattern, mainly because I like blue. All of the quilts are beautiful, it looks like a fun book!

    —Lynn Hassebroek on January 10, 2020
  • Fabric designers Shari and Chelsi, Clover Hollow. Quilt designers in the book are all scraptacular.

    —Vin M on January 10, 2020
  • I think Laurie is my choice, I have her pattern Zip Code and I love blue her take on four and nine patches with the stacked border is tops….

    —bobbie rumler on January 10, 2020
  • From this book I would have to say Lissa Alexander.

    —Cindy S on January 10, 2020

  • I can’t say just one, love them all

    —Jenny on January 10, 2020
  • I would have to say Sandy Klop aka American Jane is the most close to my quilting style. I LOVE her fabric and her quilts:)

    —ColleenM on January 10, 2020
  • I’d have to say that my style is closest to Laurie Simpson, partly because I’m so drawn to the blue and white and partly because I’ve not sewn triangles yet! Thanks for this generous giveaway.

    —bookboxer on January 10, 2020
  • There is something from each designer I like, so it is difficult to choose a "sister". Good thing we didn’t have to choose siblings or I probably would be an only child because I wouldn’t be able to make a decision! But, since I’ve been asked to do it for this, I’d say Susan Ache. Her log cabin really grabbed my eye!

    Paula Hedges on January 10, 2020
  • Sheryl Johnson is someone I a-line my quilting style to. Her use of scraps has helped me move around my stash with confidence, and results in more finished quilts on my part.

    —Shirley on January 10, 2020
  • always have scraps and looking for a way to use them. the book looks interesting

    Hilda Lang on January 10, 2020
  • So hard to choose. I’ve made quilts by a few of these so talented artists. Sheryl Johnson, Lissa Alexander and Barbara Brachman … Wow … what to do, what to do! I have to go with Sheryl Johnson but …. lol I’m so looking forward to this book. Thank you so much for the give-away

    —Rosemary Barron on January 10, 2020
  • They are all calling to me but if I have to choose one, Lissa Alexander would be my "scrap sister." Thanks for this opportunity to win!

    —Brenda Julovich on January 10, 2020
  • This Little Light of Mine, by Lissa Alexander is my favorite quilt

    —Rommy van Houten on January 10, 2020
  • They are all great, but Laurie and Lissa have been long time favorites of mine!

    —Kris B on January 10, 2020
  • I think Laurie Simpson comes the closest to matching my quilting style and stash collection. I love reproduction fabrics and traditional quilt patterns. What I like about Laurie’s designs is that her sense of color brings a brightness and freshness to the traditional blocks. And I love scrap quilts in general. Thank you Laurie and Lissa.

    —Laura Nagel on January 10, 2020
  • Definitely Laurie Simpson. Her colorways and patterns speak to me like a real sister would (if I had one, that is). I have a plethora of scraps and this would certainly be a wonderful way to start using them up! Then I could buy more fabric, so it would be a win/win! Thank you for this opportunity.

    —Mary Chasey on January 10, 2020
  • Love them all, but forced to choose- I like Lisa’s style better.

    —Lillian K on January 10, 2020
  • I’d have to pick Lissa but I love all of them and I have plenty of scraps!!!

    —barb on January 10, 2020

    —Lynne C on January 10, 2020
  • Sheryl Johnson, although also love the quilt by Laurie Simpson.

    —Sarah Gray on January 10, 2020
  • All of the quilters’ quilts are beautiful! I identify more with Lissa Alexander as I have made and love lots of string quilts.

    —Ellen Keim on January 10, 2020
  • I like Lissa’s quilt. It has a kinda organized disorganized quality to it, similar to how I quilt and live.

    —Jean G-B on January 10, 2020
  • For quilting style it would have to be Kim Brackett. With Divergence; it looks hard but, it’s easy and doesn’t have any set-in seams. I also like the color play with her scraps.

    —Colleen O'H on January 10, 2020
  • Love Sheryl Johnson!

    —Kathy G on January 10, 2020
  • Sandy klopp

    —Sandra K Boff on January 10, 2020

  • Wow this book is exciting. I love both gals but would go with the bundle from Shari and love Lisa’s style, hard choice!

    —Alfreda Rupert on January 10, 2020
  • The closest sister to my quilting style would be Sandy Klopp, and my other sister would be Lissa Alexander and then my other sister would be Sheryl Johnson! Love all the quilts from the designers in this fun Sisterhood of Scraps book! Too hard to pick just one!
    Thanks for a chance to win!

    —Carmen Montmarquet on January 10, 2020

  • I like a bit of modern like Lissa Alexander, and traditional like Betsy Chutchian. This book looks like it’s a lot of fun!

    —Marie Eddins on January 10, 2020
  • For me it would have to be Kim Diehl…love her work.

    —Sue on January 10, 2020

    —Anita Allen on January 10, 2020
  • It is always hard to pick just one. But if I have to, I pick Lissa Alexander. Love her color combinations. Thanks for the giveaway

  • That would be Lissa Alexander.

    —THERESA WESTRUP on January 10, 2020
  • Lissa has my favorite quilts although I do like all the quilts in the book. Scrap quilts are my favorite.

    —Kathy McGrath on January 10, 2020
  • Sandi, Sheryl, Lissa, ALL of them!!! As for me, anything and everything goes, just as long as there is contrast, I haven’t met a quilt I didn’t like.

    —Cindy on January 10, 2020
  • My favorite is Lori Simpson. I prefer her choice of fabric for most of the patterns.

    —Mary Clark on January 10, 2020
  • I love them all but if forced to choose, the one by Sandy Klop really spoke to me!

    —Cathy Wilson on January 10, 2020
  • Laurie Simpson. Squares are so much easier for me than other angles. 4 and 9 patches are definitely my preference.

    —Carole Holmberg on January 10, 2020
  • This book looks amazing! I love scrap quilts and Lissa is one of my favorite designers! (Although ALL of these ladies are extremely talented!)

    —Pat Anderson on January 10, 2020

    —Mary on January 10, 2020
  • My quilt style….hmm…I’m not sure I have one yet but eye-popping color or design definitely grabs my attention.
    I think the quilt by Susan Ache, Scrap Diving is the one I would try first.

    —Marlene Leonardo on January 10, 2020
  • What a great concept. I do a quilt along with some friends every few years but usually every one gets assigned a part of a quilt to complete for each member of the group. I love scrappy quilts but never thought about variations of them
    I would love to have Laurie Simpson as part of my group as Io e her style and cklor vollections..

    —Mary Smith on January 10, 2020
  • Inspiring! Thank you, Lissa

    —Laura Turney on January 11, 2020

    —Linda M on January 11, 2020
  • I like Lissa’s Friendship Starter. Actually there are several in this book that would use many of my scraps. I like this book and also the earlier book, Oh Scrap. Just need to get one and start a scarp quilt.

    —J on January 11, 2020
  • I love them all – I can’t pick one favorite! Thanks so much.

    —Sharon V. on January 11, 2020
  • Love quilts and fabrics designed by Sandy Klop.

    —Dorothy M on January 11, 2020

    —Marcia Pusey on January 11, 2020
  • They are all beautiful! I think the Forty-niner and the Scrap Diving are my two favorites along with This Little Lite of Mine.

    —Norma Martinek on January 11, 2020
  • Loved Lissa’s "Oh Scrap!" and her choices of color and techniques. This book looks amazing once again. Thanks.

    —Mom C on January 11, 2020
  • I am thinking Lisa but anything that is simple. Happy Creating.

    —Donna f on January 11, 2020
  • Laurie Simpson, because like her I enjoy scrap quilt piecing but I also love hand appliqué and hand quilting.

    —Jan on January 11, 2020
  • Susan Ache’s combination of Log Cabin and Lemoyne Star blocks, plus her color choices, make her my scrap sister!

    —JLouise on January 11, 2020
  • Hard decision; but I would have to chose Lissa even though I like most of these.

    —Nancy D. on January 11, 2020
  • Love Scrap Diving from Susan Ache!
    I have been wanting to make s log cabin quilt and this one really suits me!

    —Rosalie on January 11, 2020
  • That’s a hard question…I can relate to all of the designers. I’d have to say Sandy Klop. I love the Forever Friends quilt that is pictured, and her fabric is interesting and colorful.

    —Louise K. on January 11, 2020
  • Since I have no sister, I would love to have Sandy Klop and Lisa Alexander as my sisters.

    —Cannhale on January 11, 2020
  • In all the quilting world, I’d say Pam Rocco is my long-lost sister. I don’t see enough of her now that Quilters Newsletter is gone. But from your fabulous Sisterhood I’d bet Laurie Simpson and I would get along great, making 9 patches and 4 patches all day long.

    —Beth T. on January 11, 2020
  • Scrap quilts are my favorite to make and this new book looks like lots of fun. My quilting style is closest to Laurie Simpson and Shari & Chelsi. It’s fun to have sisters.

    —Susan M Grochowski on January 11, 2020
  • Barbara Brackman is my fav—-I love her color choices and her emphasis on history. Thanks for a chance to win!

    —Mary Jo on January 12, 2020
  • Susan Ache if O have to choose, A hard decision,

    —Elizajane C. on January 12, 2020
  • Lissa Alexander’s quilts are the ones I feel most drawn too and would love to make myself. They are all wonderful and beautiful, but hers speak most to my heart.

    —Jacqueline de Vos on January 12, 2020
  • I hate to pick a favorite, but I come closest to Lissa Alexander. However, I would like to try the Forever Friends pattern. I just love scraps, and always on the lookout for new ways to use them!

    —Madeline Wallace on January 12, 2020
  • This was a difficult choice! I wish I could pick two, because Lisa Alexander’s “This Light of Mine” is so stunning, but in the end I had to go with LAurie Simpson’s “Fortyniner” as the combo of blues and whites makes my heart sing every time I see it. Truth be tole, I could very happily make every quilt in this book.

    —Laurie on January 12, 2020
  • I’d say Lissa, I’ve been blessed to meet her in person a few times and I have to say she is so sweet and kind…that’s the type of person I’d like to be known as plus I love her quilts. Of course I like all of the quilts in the book. Thanks for the chance to win!

    —elizabeth schraeder on January 12, 2020
  • I love this little light of mine by Lisa. The book is great!!

    —Sandra Massey on January 12, 2020

    —Leah Shumack on January 12, 2020
  • Sandy Klop appears closest to my style. Lots of color.

    —Renata S on January 12, 2020
  • As much as I’d like to win, I would put this request in for my best friend, Rita Jones. I think Kim Diehl’s style might be the closest to Rita’s. More importantly, she inspired to keep quilting over the last 15 years after I went through a rough time from a divorce and depression. She’s not aware I’m doing this. So, if she wins I will give you get info. Thanks.

    —Ginger Engeman on January 13, 2020
  • I am liking all of these but i think the first one i would try would be from Lisa Alexander, love that one in the pictures above!

    —Barbara on January 13, 2020
  • I love them all. The book would be so inspiring for me to keep using my scraps. Susan Ache with Scrap Diving jumped out at me.
