I am brimming with excitement over our latest quilt book, Bits and Pieces. As a huge fan of scrappy quilts, I loved the idea of compiling a group of patterns that use precuts to achieve a scrappy look. Precuts really do save so much time!
When we sat down to brainstorm the theme for this book, there was certainly no shortage of ideas and directions we could go. We knew that we wanted the book to feature some of our favorite patterns – both new and old – but with so many beautiful options to choose from, we needed to pick a theme for the book that would help narrow down our options. This may sound easy, but trust me, it took a long time. Finally, after sorting through hundreds of patterns, we selected a stack of options that we all agreed on, and after looking through the stack again, we had identified our theme: scrappy looking projects that are precut friendly!
Something that was really important to our team was that we had a project for all skill levels, and that different project types were well represented. Some of my favorite projects from the book are shown below.
As an added bonus, many of the projects in the book are offered with alternative colorway suggestions to make it easier for you to pull from your stash. After months of hard work – editing pages, sewing projects, photographing the finished quilts – we were finally ready to send the pages off. A few short weeks later, we had this lovely book in our hands. I can’t tell you how good that felt!
