New Classic Patchwork and Lasting Legacies Fabric Give Away

This contest is now closed. Thank you to everyone who entered! 

 

New Classic Patchwork is the third book by Yoko Saito we have carried on our Connecting Threads website. I reviewed the first one, Japanese Quilting Piece by Piece, and Laraine reviewed the second, House Warming Patchwork. The author has a distinctive style of making scrappy quilted projects with very small pieces of Japanese fabrics, especially woven Daiwabo fabrics, in neutral colors. In fact, there are no materials lists because the instructions are for using an assortment of coordinating scraps.

Quilting in Japan is known as patchwork. The author likes to combine little scraps of fabric into new, unexpected, modern interpretations of traditional blocks. She does this by experimenting with angles, proportions, and color. My favorite project is the Confetti Purse, a briefcase-like bag, which is made with fabrics of similar color value except for tiny squares of a brighter fabric that look like scattered confetti. Most of the 10 projects are unusual bags, clutches, and totes; the intriguing assortment of blocks would make a stunning sampler quilt!

The Lasting Legacies collection would be an interesting, attractive choice for the projects in New Classic Patchwork. A fat quarter (FQ) sampler would provide a lovely assortment of fabrics from which to choose to maximize the scrappy effect!

    I absolutely love the Lasting Legacies fabrics. I have made an expanded version of the sampler quilt using 30 different blocks, a wall hanging, and a scrappy lap quilt. I would love to have more of these fabrics to create some accessories to complete my new bedroom. To have the book to go with the fabrics would be so great. I absolutely am addicted to bags, totes etc. The more unique, the better.

    I love this line. The fabrics remind me of the civil war reproduction fabrics that I’ve just started to collect for a large medallion quilt. These fabrics would look wonderful in that quilt! And I’d love to see Yoko Saito’s twist on patchwork. I have one of her applique books, and it’s just stunning – makes me appreciate the daiwabo fabrics I’d dismissed previously.

    No matter what I try, I always find myself being pulled back to scrappy quilting. It always has someplace for your eyes to land. Connecting threads never disappoints with their collections. Makes me keep coming back again and again. Thank you for this opportunity.

    I love civil war fabrics and these are very much the colors I like. The thing that makes them so special is that they are not only beautiful colors and designs, they are so very affordable. The book would be a welcome addition to some I have now also. if I don’t win these nice fabrics, I will most likely buy them anyway!!!!

I want to help them tell that story. This book looks like a great addition to my collection … many creative ideads to keep me busy or at least out of trouble for a bit…. :-)

    I love Connecting Threads and all of the fabrics, the Lasting Legacies has my favorite colors, you can use them in some many different projects. My grandma was a quilter and I know she used similar fabrics, and I think the book, New Classic Patchwork, combines new and old and makes it all work together!

    I love finding new ways to do the classic blocks. I have such respect for the way my Grandmothers made their quilts, cutting with scissors and sewing by hand, but I’m too impatient for that. Those fabrics remind me of quilts from yesteryear. Love them.

    The colors in the Lasting Legacies line are beautiful! I sure would love to work with them. The colors match my home so well and are comforting. The Classic Patch Work book by Yoko Saito looks like it has some wonderful ideas for gifts.

    The colors draw me in for some reason I can’t quite explain , they are deep but splashes of color
    that POP … I love quilting and patchwork is my favorite style . I would love to retire and do it as often as I wish.. (Oh to dream per chance to win , as visions of fabric danced in my head ..LOL)

    Classic quilt block patterns are a constant
    in a world that sometimes changes too fast.
    It’s good to see they are not being forgotten
    in the trend towards abstract.

    Oh, WOW! Yoko Saito is one of my favorite designers! LOVE her books! The small piecework she uses in her designs is fabulous; her eye for color placement is awesome! The Lasting Legacy line would be wonderful to use with Saito’s patterns, as the earthy colors would make a beautiful “canvas” of fabric to create one of her bags. Hoping for a chance to try it! Thanks for this great giveaway opportunity!!!

I still have this quilt!! When I saw this line– I thought I need to to learn to quilt! I have always sewn but have never quilted! i have ordered the lasting legacy quilt kit and my journey has begun!! I would love to have more of this line to make a dust ruffle and who knows!!!! ???
