Blog Tour Day 6! Scrap-Basket Sensations!

 It's my day! Hurrah!
Be prepared, this might be a long post! But it will be fun and filled with photos!

I hope you have been enjoying the blog tour so far! I was so excited when Kim from Magnolia Bay Quilts asked if I would like to be a part of it! However, had Kim asked me about the book title when the book was still under construction I might of suggested Scrap-Basket Sinta-sations! What do you think???
Ok, you're probably right! Scrap-Basket Sensations is better!
Seriously, this is the best book I have ever seen that utilizes 2 1/2" strips. Hands down!
Fun projects, unique- as in out of the ordinary!

And one of the fun things about the projects in Kim's book is that she enlisted the help of some of her favorite bloggers! I thought I would lightly interview them for my post, so here are some of Kim's helper bees and some of the quilts that they made for Kim's new book:


This one is Happy Daze made by Darlene of Quilting Daze!

Question: What was the fun factor in the quilt(s) that you made?

Darlene: The fun factor in making Summer Daze was working with Snippets by American Jane/Moda - all coordinated.
The fun factor in making Tool Shed was that I HAD to work with scraps - way out of my comfort zone.  LOL  I was very proud of myself because the quilt has French General, Jo Morton, Robyn Pandolph, etc prints all mixed together and it seemed to work because the quilt seems to appeal to many.  :-)
(Tool Shed)
This question is a spin off from a game I use to play with my kids when they were young:

Question: If you were alone on a desert island and could only make 1 quilt out of Scrap-Basket Sensations which one would it be... and what colors would you chose?

Darlene: The quilt on the cover really appeals to me but I'm not sure what colors I would use (super scrappy because I'm feeling brave (LOL); or Central Park by Kate Spain.


Mary from Quilt Hollow made up a few of the projects in Kim's book. The quilt above is Lake Cabin.

 This quilt is Blessings from the Hollow! Both are stunning quilts.

Here is what Mary replied to my questions:

Question: What was the fun factor in the quilt(s) that you made?

Mary: Fun Factor when I made Lake Cabin was seeing the sashing stars "magically" appear as the quilt rows were being sewn together.  Blessings from the Hollow's awesome border stole my heart!  It isn't the normal slap on plain fabric and call it good border.  I know how hard Kim worked at getting that border just right and if I recall correctly she considered ditching this one.  I'm so glad she didn't and I can honestly say Blessings from the Hollow is my favorite.


Question: If you were alone on a desert island and could only make 1 quilt out of Scrap-Basket Sensations which one would it be... and what colors would you chose?


Mary: Desert Island - sorry....the last thing I would do on a desert island is quilt unless of course it is freezing!  LOL

 
Flowers for Nana Girl is one of my favorite's in the book. This was made by Karen aka Nana Girl.

Flower Box was pieced by Karen also.

Question: What was the fun factor in the quilt(s) that you made?

Karen: The fun factor for me was making a quilt that Kim had designed and then seeing it take shape for the very first time. As each quilt went from idea to paper to fabric, our excitement increased.

Question: If you were alone on a desert island and could only make 1 quilt out of Scrap-Basket Sensations which one would it be... and what colors would you chose?

Karen: I think I would make Flower Baskets again out of the same color
palette. The soft brown with the pastels is so soothing. I fell in love with this pattern the very first time I saw it. It looks so complicated it's hard to believe it is only one block! I also think this quilt would look good as a two color quilt - in which case I would use my favorite combination - barn red and tan.



This is Kim's two color quilt that you will find in the book:
This is Sparkler! A beautiful 2 color quilt but could be done in patriotic or multi-colored also!

Question: What was the fun factor in the quilt(s) that you made?

Kim: Every quilt I personally made was a pleasure, but It was really fun for me to have so many talented quilters contributing to the book.  We chatted, e-mailed, telephoned, and talked about the quilts we were working on, and because of their involvement, I was more energized and excited.  

Question: If you were alone on a desert island and could only make 1 quilt out of Scrap-Basket Sensations which one would it be... and what colors would you chose?

Kim: I can't stop giggling over the thought of being stranded on a desert island with a sewing machine and iron, but no electricity!  Since I'm on a desert island and have plenty of time on my hands,  I'll probably make Blessings from the Hollow with the pieced border.  And probably use the same fabrics.  Is there a quilt shop on the island?  How did I get here anyway?  


Here are some of the other quilts in the book designed and made by Kim:

Town Square is next on my project list!

This one is called Nova; those starts are beautiful.

Island Chain is just a stunning quilt!
There are 18 unique projects in all.


So here is the book! You can order it at Amazon (which happens to have an excellent sale price on the book right now) or your LQS can order it from Martingale Publishing for you too...
but if you would like to try and win a signed copy of Scrap-Basket Sensations just leave me a comment here and I will pick a winner on Friday morning!
So which quilt would you make if you were stranded alone on a desert island?

Lesly said...

Hard to choose just one! But I think it would have to be Flower Box. Great looking projects!

Deb said...

I'd say if someone were stranded on a desert island, maybe Island Chain would be the quilt to make....it might just be a link in the chain to get off the island! LOL! I'd love to win a copy of the book. Great post.

Cindy said...

Blessings from the Hollow would have already been wrapped around me when I got stranded. LOL It kept me afloat!!

pcflamingo said...

How can I choose just one? There's just no way. I would really like to win this book so I can start planning which quilt to make first!

Cindy said...

I think I'd go with Lake Cabin. I have to say though, all the quilts I've seen in the book are great and I can't wait to get my hands on a copy!

Magnolia Bay Quilts said...

You're so right -- that would have been a great name for the book! Thanks so much for your super-nice words. You're too sweet!

Passions and Pursuits said...

So pretty! My pick would be flowers for Nana Girl. It is soooo pretty!

Cheryl said...

I think it would Flowers for Nana Girl. Very tropical! Thank you for the opportunity to win this book.

Kristy said...

They're all beautiful. Today I think I would make teh Nova one :)

Michelle said...

NOVA! I love it!

Lee Ann said...

These are all beautiful quilts. Happy Daze looks wonderfully easy to make. Thanks for the chance to win.

Becky said...

Thanks for reviewing all the quilts. I really like the last one now. I'd love to win a book.

Lainee said...

I'd make FLower Box first if I won the book.

Donna said...

I love Lake Cabin. And Island Chain. And ...

ladynredd2003 @ yahoo dot com

sissa said...

only one?? I would have to chose only one?? I think my first choice would be blessings from the hollow - I love the pieced border. but hopefully there would be enough fabric on this deserted island and I could make Nova as well....

Kathy said...

Oh Gosh! it is hard to pick -- I think I love the Blessings from the Hollow.

Sure would like to win this book!

kearley75860@yahoo.com

Ullis said...

The quilts are beautiful. I would love to win a copy of the book.

Happy Cottage Quilter said...

Island Chain, of course!! This book looks like it will be as fabulous as Kim's first book. Thanks for the giveaway :-)

Christine said...

Tool Shed looks great and my husband likes tools. That would be fun to do for him. Flowers for Nana Girl still is one of my favorites. My grandchildren call me Nana, too. And Flower Box...wow, I could not see the "pattern" in it until I saw it here. It does look complicated.

I love scrappy quilts and this book would be such a perfect complement to all my scraps. Thank you for the chance to win a copy.
shoppernana@gmail.com

Jana said...

They're all beautiful. But to choose just one, my winner would be "Flowers for Nana Girl".

onlymehere said...

I would make "Blessings From The Hollow" bz I loved it the minute I laid eyes on it! It also reminds me of my blogging buddy Mary, lol! Wish me luck on your give-away! I also had fun reading your interviews.

cgnocal said...

Love the two color!

Exuberant Color said...

I would love to win this book. It has so many wonderful quilts in it that it would be hard to stop at one.

Nancy said...

My favorite is Picnic the one on the cover of the book.

Quilt Azubi said...

Thank you Sinta for your Impressions of this book. :)
and I would love to win a copy of it.

On a desert island, I would either 'Sparkler' or 'Paddle Wheel' want to sew.
probably both in turn.. ;D

best regards
Kat

Laurie in Maine said...

Lake Cabin still grabs my attention most. Would love a copy of this book on my desert island!

Audrey said...

Town Square is my first pick, but I think I will be making many from this book!!
audreybretz@gmail.com

Tiffaney said...

I just love Flowers for Nana's Girl. It would be so cute in 30's fabrics.

di said...

Flower Box keeps catching my eye!! Looking forward to the book being on my sewing table!!! Thanks for the opportunity!!!

Laura said...

I want to make them all!! Love this book and I'm trying really hard to win a copy! But just in case I don't, I also have it on my Amazon wish list lol.

paulette said...

I would make Sparkler using French General Rouenneries (I have a ton left over from a project). Thanks for the chance to win this gorgeous book!!
Paulette

Karen said...

I think I would make Lake Cabin on my desert island.

Jaylene said...

It would be a hard decision to make but I think I like Pinic, the quilt on the cover.

lv2kwilt at gmail dot com

Wendy said...

This tour has been so much fun. Boy that's a hard question. I loved Town Square from the first time I saw Mary sewing it. That's the one!

Maj said...

If I had to choose I would make the Picnic quilt.

Vicki @ DottyJane said...

I think I like Tool Shed the best from today! However, they way I swim at this island, Over and Under would be more appropriate:)

Mary said...

I would love to win the book so I can make the one on the cover...that or the blue and green woven circles. Those are nice, too. :)

Mary

Mary on Lake Pulaski said...

If I had to choose, I would make Tool Shed and Island Chain. Oh that two! I guess Tool Shed. Thanks for all the fun questions for your guests Sinta.

coconblanc said...

I would make the Flower Box or the Happy Daze Quilt. I love Quilt with white and a lot of colours.
I loved your interviews!
Regads from German
Gabi

Lori said...

I love the Island chain and would choose that one, closely followed by Nova. Awesome book! I hope I win. I have really been enjoying the blog tour!

Penny from S.C. said...

I love the quilt on the cover and I also really like the colors in it. They all look great!

Not Lucy said...

Not sure which one I would do, depends on what fabric ended up on that island with me. When I win this book I will probably make each of them at least once!

PunkiePie (Jen) said...

I don't know. I like that Flower Box one or that last one you showed.... Desert something. I already forgot the name. Thanks for the chance, Sinta!

Country Log Cabin Quilter said...

I would have to say Island Chain. I am really amazed at all the different designs Kim has come up with. I would love to win the book.

Amy said...

How to choose only one?! Maybe Nova....well, maybe Flower Box...see I can't just choose one!

Dirt Road Quilter said...

Deoends on how long I was stranded! LOL! Would I have access to all the fabric my heart desired and would they drop ship orders because I would want to make all of them, but Flower Box would probably be my first choice. Ugh! Don't know if I can wait to see if I win one...think I need to order one NOW!

Béa said...

I love ALL the quilts , Flowers for Nana Girl will be my choice.
Hope to be lucky one time...
XOXO

Malmbergs said...

The cover quilt, Picnic, is my favorite. Love the scrapiness of it!

Donna said...

I couldn't choose just one ... they are all beautiful! The book looks great from every post I've seen.

Vroomans' Quilts said...

They are all wonderful, but I would have to make the cover quilt as that is what draws you into the book. Just lovely.

Donna said...

Nova - I have a thing for stars and these are lovely! Love the book. Happy quilting.

Annie said...

There are so many cute quilts in this book I could not even begin to figure out which one I would make if I could only make one. I would really love to win a copy of the book...Thanks

Linda said...

Tool Shed! I justlove the design if that quilt!

Ginny Worden said...

Hands down, it would be Nova. I hope Moda is situated on this desert island.

Linda E in AZ said...

Island Chain, of course!
thanks!

ytsmom said...

Lake Cabin, no wait, Island Chain, no wait! Well, you get the picture.

Karen said...

You are right the quilts are stunning. I would love to have this book so I could make each quilt.

FML Crochet said...

I've been to the other blogs but don't recall seeing Flower Box. Beautiful! Thanks for the chance to win.

Terry said...

They're all beautiful! I think the first one I'd make is Town Square! It's wonderful! :0)

Sallie said...

I love scrap quilts, and Nova looks like one I'd like to try.

Ann Marie said...

I like the Island Chain quilt. Reminds me of a border I created for the very first quilt I made a long time ago.

Kay said...

I can't wait to make Nana Girl & was thinking it would be pretty in the new Oasis fabric.

Millie said...

I just love Kim's new book with all the pattern to use those 2.5" strips. I am not here to win, just wan to stop by and say "hi".

baquilter said...

I popped in from Nicole's blog and have enjoyed myself so much!

I think I'd make Nova, then work my way through the book until I was rescued, the island was covered with shore to shore quilts, or my stash ran out!

Thanks for hosting part of the book tour!

Cheers!

Rebecca P said...

I love all the patterns in Kim's new book. The one I want to start first is Over & under. Or Blessing from the Hallow.
I would love to win a copy.

Dolores said...

Since I am always undecided, it would be either Flowers for Nana Girl or Island Chain. What a great book.

Irishgirlsews said...

Definitely Tool Shed, my hubby is a builder and he has a birthday coming very soon. Love them all really.
Wendy

Sandy said...

I really need this book...each pattern is so unique! I really love the cover quilt and can't wait to make it.

Betty said...

I think Island Chain would be very appropriate for a desert island. I would hope that the Professor from Gilligan's Island is stranded with me so he could make a solar powered sewing machine for me. I'm sure there would be plenty of fibers to weave cloth and plants to dye all the colors. But first I need a copy of the book, so I sure hope I win one! Thanks for the opportunity!

Darlene B said...

It would make sense to make Island Chain, but I think I would make Town Square while wishing there would be a town I could go to full of quilt shops! Thanks for the opportunity to win this great book. Kim has really outdone herself!

Quilts And Pieces said...

This book is wonderful (from what I've seen on the posts)! I think if I had to choose only one it would be Sparkler.... no maybe Lake Cabin.... no maybe - OK I can't pick one!

Joan and Kevin said...

Flowers for Nana Girl is my favorite. Thanks for the giveaway!

Kris said...

I love the Lake Cabin, but I hope I won;t need a quilt on the desert island, but I suppose I need something to do while I'm waiting to be rescued. Can I take my blender and margarita mix?

Deb said...

I love all of the quilts I've seen so far, but really love the Island chain quilt. Would like to make them all! Thanks!

kynomi said...

I would make Lake Cabin--no, wait, I would make Blessings from the Hollow--no, wait----

Jill said...

I love island chain. This book looks great!

LeAnne said...

I would be doing Island Chain in blue batiks. Thanks for putting up all the pictures.
lalaw at douglasfast dot net

Cindy said...

Sounds like fun - being stranded on a desert island and just sewing. Love Flower Box. I think that would be my pick.

Cyndi said...

I think I'd want to make Happy Daze...as indeed they would be if I was stranded on a desert island!

I just *heart* this book so much...I'm hoping to win a copy, but if I don't, I'm definitely going to buy one for myself!

Thanks so much for your participation in the give away, Sinta, and the opportunity to win!

XOXO,

Cyndi

Dresden Quilter said...

I would make Town Square. I have many of those fabric and never found the right pattern for them. Thanks for the giveaway.

SueB said...

Cant I have them all? Well if only one I choose Nova.

Quilt Hollow said...

Awesome Post! I loved reading everybody's answers to the fun questions you asked! Kim just cracks me up....how did we get there any way? LOL

I should have told you about the time we took a friend camping in a tent for the first time...she brought her hair dryer! We had such a laugh and gave her a hard time asking her what tree she wanted to plug it into!

Can't go wrong owning this great stash busting book!! I love mine!

Katie said...

I think I would have to make Over and Under, but I'm loving all the quilts in this book! Thanks for the chance to win!

Sandy E-H said...

I'm going to keep trying to win a copy of this book---it's super!
One of the quilts that really appeals to me today--the two color quilt---'Sparkler'---tomorrow may be a totally different quilt!

Bluzbrod said...

I love Sparkler -- and I'd make it in a multi-color batik and creamy yellow. Yummm.

Stampmouse said...

I am a newbie so i have only made one small holiday hanging quilt but I love being able to say I made that and be proud of it.

I am Just One Mom said...

oh the 2 color Sparkler is perfect for a quilt I want to make for an aunt that loves Orange! Thank you!

James-Linda said...

I'd choose 'Flowers for Nana Girl'!
Thanks for sharing!

jldouglas@wispwest.net

AnnieO said...

How fun to have interview subjects! Desert Island Quilt Shop sure carries some great stuff...I would choose Tool Shed. I just love the jaunty angle of that block and scrappy is best in my book! Thanks for the giveaway!

peg.cawley said...

Island Chain or how about 1 of each.

mary said...

If I am on a desert island, I'm going to assume there is no electricity! Which means for me, a quilt just isn't happening - I don't piece by hand ever! However, when I get rescued I'm going to make almost every one of the quilts in the book-I love every one I have seen. (After I finish the talk show tour discussing my miraculous rescue, that is!)

Darlene said...

Awesome post, Sinta. Fun read!

Peaceful Piecer said...

Island Chain. Thanks for a chance to win!

Diane said...

I think I would start with Nova, but I like the 2 color version of Sparkler too!

Kathy H said...

I think I would choose the Flowers for Nana Girl. It looks like a Hawaiian quilt to me. I keep going back to it.

LizA. said...

I have her first book and just love it. I can't wait to see all the new projects in this book.

Anita said...

I would love to win a copy of this book. It looks like it is full of inspirational patterns. thank you!

Jayne said...

I've been following this blog tour since the beginning - hoping to win a copy of this book! I really does seem like a "must-have" for serious quilters!

Thanks for the fun!
Jayne

random thoughts do or di said...

I would love to win a copy of the book. If I am not lucky enough then I will buy it.

thanks for the chance to win.
I hope I am lucky enough to win.
please check out my blog

Lisa (Michael too in photo ;O) said...

Oh gosh, this book looks better and better! I would definitely choose Sparkler and do it in White and Purple! Can't wait to get my hands on a copy!!

ferne said...

This book is on my wish list right now at Amazon! The Island Chain is really intriguing me right now...but there are so many great patterns in this book.

hadacres said...

Thank you for a very entertaing post about how the quilts came to be. i would love to be in the running to receive the book so I can start using my scraps to make one or more of the wonderful quilts inside it's pages.

JoAnne said...

I love the interview questions! I would also love to win a copy of the book. I'm so excited to do some of these projects!

Constance said...

I would make the Island Chain quilt if I were on a desert island.

Heather S. said...

I think Happy Daze would be my first while I enjoy that island :)

shelly said...

Town Square would be the quilt for me but I love them all.

Jen said...

Every time I see a new quilt from this book I change my mind! Now I love the Flower Box. This was a great post, thanks for putting a spin on the usual blog hop!

rebecca said...

I would have to make Nova. How pretty your sample is!!

TexasQuilter said...

Nova is sure a winner for me and a candidate for all my scraps! I can hardly wait to see this book in person.

Karen said...

Lake Cabin would be the quilt I would make first, it is a tough chose since they are all such awesome projects!!

Heartsdesire said...

I like Lake Cabin as I think I could showcase a lot of my Civil War fabrics. All the patterns in this book are amazing and I think every quilter should have a copy in her/his library. If I don't win I will definitely be buying this book. But thanks to the blog hop, I have a chance to win a signed copy.

Marls said...

Alone on a desert island-there'd be no quilting going on as I'm not a hand piecer.
I'd be too busy hunting and gathering to survive!!
I do love Island Chain however.

Ann J said...

I have Kim's first book and love it, to win this one would be really great!

Nova would be my choice pattern, but as for colours, that needs more thinking about!

Luv...........Ann J

CJ said...

If I was stranded on a desert island (ya sure that isn't DESSERT island??) with electricity and plumbing then I would make Flowers for Nana Girl. You've got to add some punch of color to a desert island. I'd love to win a signed copy of this book!

Needled Mom said...

I think I would work on Sparkler. Does that mean that we will have all of our sewing supplies on that island too?????

Heather A said...

I would have to make Island Chain with the hope that the quilt would work it's magic and chain islands together to get me back to the mainland and my family. And my stash!

Jenniffier said...

I really like Flowers for Nana Girl. Thanks for sharing!

Martha said...

I love Flowers by Nana Girl!

VickiT said...

That's a really tough question. I had been seeing the Picnic quilt on other blogs thorughout the hop and really loved that one....but now I see Island Chain and love the way that one looks. I think my choice would be Island Chain.

Denise in PA said...

Okay, my desert island quilt would have to be Over and Under (one I don't believe you showed on this post). But, I've seen it and it would be the first quilt I would make from this book (but I love everything I've seen so far!)

Dreamquilter Elke said...

This are beautiful quilts and every quilt is great. The Scrap-Basket Sensations is a good project to see, which quilts are in the book.
Thank you for all the pictures!
I am happy, if I win this book.
Elke L.

Jan said...

Hmm, I think that I would have to make Sparkler first, and out of mostly blues, plus some scraps. But, I would take a laptop and order some more fabric - just in case I'm stranded for a while! Hopefully, there is electricity and I won't be sewing on a treadle!

Abbybeth said...

I would make Nova! I think this is the first picture I've seen of that project and I just love it :)

Slowpoke said...

Thanks for the great interviews. If I were on this magical island where I could sew, I would choose the cover quilt, Picnic. It looks nice and scrappy. I would love to win this book and try some of the others too. Gratefully, Luba.

chris.luba@sympatico.ca

Nanette Merrill and daughters said...

This book is moving around like lightening. With such great women and their projects, too.

Trudi said...

Since I'm on a desert island, and I have all the time in the world, do I have to pick just one! lol I think it would have to be the Tipsey Baskets :) I hope my stash is stranded with me! Great post, I loved all the interviews :)

Loris said...

These quilts are all ones I would pick...but today I'm liking the two color quilt the best. I guess I'll be hand piecing this on the island? Fortunately, that is fun too! Thanks for the chance to win a signed copy :-)

Ariane said...

Loved this post!!! I think I would make "Sparkler". This is the first time I see that quilt featured. And it's made in my favorite colors. Now, I really need to get this book. So, many wonderful quilts.

jennifer said...

Love the stars, Thanks Sinta for the chance to win:)

Sandie ~call me crazy said...

Nova really caught my eye and would have to be made, if I can win a copy of her book. ;-) Thanks for the chance! I loved your questions.

Becky S. said...

The quilts are all so pretty! I think I would make the Picnic quilt, on the front cover, first. Thanks for the chance to win.

Julie said...

Thanks for the wonderful interviews. It's certainly hard to choose just one quilt!

Ingaredstoka said...

All quilts from that book just looks stunning... would love to have my own copy!
Susanne

bhafer said...

Again each one is prettier than the next. Hope I win!!!

Lynn said...

Flowers for Nana's girl. This is my kind of desert island, one with fabrics and quilts!

kshackabq said...

Probably Island Chain! Thanks for the interviews and a look at the quilts.

Sherryl said...

I got such a giggle out of Kim's response to the desert island question. Too funny. And I'm kind of in love with Tool Shed (hmmm - that doesn't sound right, does it?). Fun post. Thanksk for sharing.

Marj said...

I am in love with the Island chain quilt in the new Scrap Basket book. I'd love to win a copy of the book. Great post.

Katie M. said...

If I had to choose from what I've seen, it would be Blessings from the Hallow. And to stranded on a desert island?....Give me some fabric and a needle and thread, I'd be a happy strander.

Teresa Felgueiras said...

I would choose Flowers for Nana, it's so beautiful, but then again all quilts in the book are. LOL!

JulieF1962 said...

All of the quilts are really pretty! I would love to win the book!

Joanna said...

I love Nova. For some reason the star blocks are very appealing to me right now. It seems to be a beautiful book.

Michelle said...

I would make Picnic. I would love to win the book.

Mary said...

Love the "fun factor" question. We should all keep it in mind as we work on each project - after all, that's why we quilt.

Which quilt to make first? That's a tough one - they're all tempting. I'd start with the Lake Cabin (probably).

Thanks for the inspiration and the great giveaway.

Bente said...

It is really a must have book, so many beautiful quilts!

Danielle said...

If I was stranded, I would make picnic! I actually wish I was I stranded, alone, anywhere with my fabric right now! Thanks for a chance...

Janet said...

There are several quilt patterns in this book I'd love to make, but I think my favorite (and first to make) will be the Lake Cabin pattern.

Thank you for the opportunity.

Cardygirl said...

I like Picnic from the cover...it would look great in funky brights or 30's prints...looks like a great book!

Lisa Marie said...

I think Nova would be the one for me -- although it was awfully hard to choose! I'm anxious to get my hands on that book. Thanks for the chance to win!

Barbara said...

I would love a chance to win this book. Thank you for the lovely review.

BillieBee (billiemick) said...

Island Chain for me....grin.

Thanks!

Cathy said...

If I were stranded on a desert island I would make Nova. It would reflect the stars at night and keep me warm. Thanls for a chance to win the book. Hugs

Stitched With Prayer said...

OH my gosh...I think I would just have to close my eyes, flip through the book, stop at page and point! All of the projects you posted are just wonderful, how does a person choose? LOL...Thanks for a chance to have a copy of the book and for a great post.

Sheila said...

I'd have to say Island Chain , now that seems to be the most appropriate don't you think ;-0 Love them all to be honest and would be delighted to win the book ! Thanks for the chance to win . Sheila

Nancy said...

hmmm... I think Blessings from the Hollow would be my choice.

Allyson said...

I like so many of them, but Lake Cabin is quickly moving up on the list. Thanks for some fun Q&A, Sinta!

Esther said...

I loved them all, but Island Chain would have to be my favorites.

free indeed said...

That cover quilt would probably be the first one I"d make...I just love the 'freshness' of it. That book is on my wish list for sure!

sincerely yours said...

I think I might choose Town Square for my "stranded" project...they're all beautiful though, it's a tough decision to make. Emma

Dianne Giles said...

Choices, choices, choices. I like a challenge and the Island Chain would be awesome to start (and finish LOL). I would be thrilled to win a copy of this book. Thanks for the chance, Dianne

Jeanne said...

The book looks great! I think I may try Island Chain, but it's a tough decision.

Karen said...

I learned some fun facts about my fellow bloggers here today. Please enter me in this wonderful giveaway. Not sure which quilt I would chose to do first they all look fantastic!!

Sand and Sunshine said...

Oh I so want to make the over and under one that was featured on the Sister's Choice Quilt Blog!

Julie in WA said...

Flowers for Nana Girl! I love it! I can tell I'm going to love the whole book, just like the first one.

BeachQuilter said...

I'd pick Nova, every island needs beautiful stars!

Island chain looks like a fun quilt. Plus, if I'm stranded on an island why not an Island quilt?

Carrie P. said...

I like them all that is why I hope to win a book. If I was on an island I would make "Flowers" first.
It was fun reading the interviews. Thanks for a chance to win a book.

Stina said...

Scrappy quilts are the best and the ones I love...:0)
I do have a good eye at Lake Cabin ... Love that one ...or the Flowers for Nana Girl... They will all look wonderful dressed in pink ...lol

Barb in Mi said...

I guess I would make Nova in bright batiks and hope it will be seen from far above use it to lure resucers on the island! Great projects in this book - thanks for the giveaway!

Rita said...

I would make Blessings from the Hollow. I love that quilt! Thanks for the fun post.

Marcia W. said...

If stranded and had all the makings to make a quilt, would make Blessings from the Hollow. Would enjoy winning this book and making the quilts as like all that I've seen. Thanks for the stop on the blog tour.

Deb said...

I'd have to say Nana Girl. It looks pretty cute.

Mad Quilter Maddy said...

If l had to choose one quilt from the book. l think it would be Nova.
Have enjoyed reading your blog.

Julie S said...

They are all wonderful quilts, but the first one I would make is Blessings.

Elisabeth said...

There are several quilts I'd like to make from this book!

Sue said...

I love them all! I'd love to have this book.

Dandelion Quilts said...

I think I like Flower Box...how does one choose?

Calamity Jane's Cottage, Bonnie said...

I'ld have to choose the one on the cover "Picnic". If I was on an Island, for sure I'ld have a picnic. Thanks for the chance.

JayTee said...

Petit Design Co. said...

ha ha, quilting on a desert island! I'd pick flower box

dortha said...

I still like the quilt on the cover the best. I like the other ones also.

Andrea said...

I loved the colors in Flowers for Nana Girl, but love the pattern of Island Chain - oh and that 2 color one is great! It is so hard to choose - I am loving this book and would love to do them all. This was a fun blog post to read!

Cindy from "It's a Sew Sew Day..." said...

I would have to say Blessings from the Hollow is my favorite and would keep me warm on those chilly tropical nights! *giggles* I would love to win this book!

Happy Quilting!
Cindy

Judy in Michigan said...

The more quilts I see from the book, the harder it is to choose the one I want to make first. I hope I win the book!! Thanks. Very interesting interviews.

Christina D said...

If I were stranded on an island, I would choose Nova. I have batiks waiting to be sewn into a beautiful quilt.

Kathy said...

How long will I be stranded? I might have time to make more than one. Island Chain seems like the obvious answer, but I think I would start with Nova.

Becky said...

Today, a deserted island sounds heavenly:) I'd begin with the cover quilt (Picnic) and work my way through the entire book. No one on the island, but me right? Yep, all the4 quilts in the book:)

Teala said...

I think today I would choose Nova! What a great review...now I must have the book!

Carol said...

Your interviews are so fun with the desert island and such. I'm really enjoying the book tour and would love to have a autographed copy of this wonderful book.

It's hard to pick just one, but I thinkg Town Square would be mu first.

Muddling Through said...

How could you choose just one? Not happening. I'd love to win the book though and decide which one to start with.

Merete said...

I think I would choose sparkler, an amazing 2-coloured quilt.

Chris@Cats On My Quilts said...

That 2 color quilt, Sparkler is calling my name!

Gayle said...

I think I'll have to start with Tool Shed, although it's a really tough choice!

kimland said...

It would have to be Blessing from the Hollow. Would LOVE to have this book!

Deb G. in VA said...

They are all beautiful quilts, so it's hard to pick just one, but I especially like the one on the cover, I think it's called Picnic.

Wendy said...

On a deserted island, me and the big open sky, I'd be inspired to make Nova ... beautiful quilts, one and all! Thank you for this chance :)

Deborah said...

So hard to choose just one but I think I would choose Lake Cabin. Thanks for the chance to win.

ariuna said...

You're right - they really are more unique than other books for jelly rolls. Love the pictures I've seen so far! I think I'd make the one on the cover. Love it :)

JanetK said...

I guess I'd make "flowers for nana girl" - but I haven't seen all the patterns in the book yet!
