WARNING…I kinda switched my block around a bit….not on purpose…but when you switch the background color…it kinda messes you up a bit…anyway…I am keeping it this way…I actually love it!!!! If you need to get the directions for this week block you need to pop on over to Betsy HERE…but while you are here you may want to read down to the end!

In honor of Moda Block Heads and the Sisterhood we share I am doing a give-away today…I was in California last week with Lissa Alexander, Tammy Vonderschmidt, Robin Pickens, Amy Mathey, Jen Kingwell and Joanna Figueroa. We had a very nice dinner on Friday night…Lissa signed books in my booth on Thursday and I managed to snag one for a give-away for you here and one for myself…Sold all the rest!!!! As you can see the cover is awesome!!! 12 quilts in here…a bunch from Lissa and then a few from 6 other designers….even one antique!!!
and here is a video of the quilts on display…in the book…
If you can’t wait to win one and you want to order your own copy of Sisterhood of Scraps click this link you will be ordering it from Primitive Gatherings…or if you would rather keep Amazon in business rather than our family business…click HERE…but just remember if we keep ordering things we can get at our quilt shops the quilt shops will go out of business… I will pick the lucky winner of Lissa’s book on Sunday! I hope you win it! Thanks and happy week three of MBHs…xxx Lisa…

I had just looked at her blog today, her red and cream is pretty. Would love to win her book. I am lucky enough to have a sisterhood of wooly/sewing/knitting friends, that gather monthly to share, sew and enjoy a meal in each other’s homes. It is so wonderful to have a group of girlfriends that we can share stuff with, life’s uphills and downhills for all of us. We all met in a quilting guild so many years ago, and have become such wonderful friends. I encourage everyone to join and participate in your local guilds, you will gain such wonderful friendships!
This looks like a great book. I love your quilts. I am especially fond of your wool applique. You were my inspiration to do quilting with wool.

A wonderful signed book of inspiration, the quilt looks beautiful.
Your quilt block is lovely! The book looks very good. I love quilt books!

Awesome Book. Thanks for the chance to win.
I love scrappy quilts. It was nice to meet you Lisa at Road 2 California
Thank you for offering this signed copy of the new book, what fun it would be to win it. And thank you for posting the measurements for the 4″ blocks, I won’t make all of them that small but I will be making some of them and you make it so much easier
Book looks fantastic! Thanks for the chance to win it.
Scrappy makes my heart sing!
Thanks for all you create for us…love your work!
Loved seeing you on Friday. Sorry I didn’t see the Sisterhood book. Will always buy from quilt shops first over Amazon.
Amazing quilts and challenging for sure. Love them all.
Where do we apply to win the book? It looks a great one to use up scraps.
That video!! Love all the quilts. I have Lissa’s Oh!Scrap book and would love to add this one to my collection.
Looks like a great book–I love scrappiness!
I resort to the internet Giant, only after checking my local shops and requesting that they order the item in for me. If, and only if, they cannot order for me (due to a minimum quantity required or something similar) I then resort to the internet Giant. In Western PA, we’ve lost at least SEVEN shops in the last few years. I’d rather wait a few days and go pick it up, (who knows what else I might find while I’m there…!) than watch my local shop go under and contribute to it!
Oh, my, gosh, every quilt is a stunner. Adding to my to do list! (which is already several pages long 🙂 ). I would be honored to win this book. Thanks for offering the giveaway! fingers crossed…
Loved seeing you Road to California and picking up patterns for Indigo Gatherings my oreordee arrived when I got home! Love scrappy!
I love all of the Moda designer books. Almost all of my quilts are scrappy. This one looks like it’s a “must have”.
The book looks great,I love antique quilts!
thank you for doing the 4 inch blocks. I just love reading your blog . I wish i lived closer so i could come and visit your shop … maybe someday??? Thanks for the tips on how to do the blocks.
Looks like I’ll be using triangle paper on this block. So much fun! Did the other two BlockHeads and looking forward to seeing this one finished. Thanks for the chance on the Sisterhood book.
And, LOVE the bi-monthly Wool Boxes; and the holiday box – Excellent! Two caramels are never enough. Guess I’ll have to order some from your website or chew slower as I make my way through all the fun things in the box.
This book looks amazing – thanks for the chance to win!
I would love to win a copy of that book. – Andrea

I love the block you made switched pieces and all!
Would love to win the book the quilts all look so great!
I would love to win a copy of Lissa’s new book!
I could not agree more with your assessment of ordering on line. We need all the wonderful things our local quilt shops offer and we need to support them. Thanks for the chance to win the book. It looks like another winner.
OMGoodness! Thank you so much for posting the video of the quilts contained in Lissa’s book! Each one is incredibly beautiful.
Beautiful alternative color-way for the block! So many choices.
And a chance for the book – thank-you.
That’s right up my alley! Thanks for sharing😃
Thanks for the chance on this great-looking book.
I would love to own this book! Thanks for the opportunity to win and for saving one for one of us!
Someone will be very very lucky to win this Sisterhood of Scraps book! You are always so generous!
That looks like a great book by a group of great designers!
I totally agree that we need to support our local quilt shops – it is soooo important! I love the quilts in this book and would love to have a copy!
I would love Lissa’s book! That book cover is to die for! Also can’t wait to see your fabric starching video:)
I would so enjoy winning this book!!! Our local quilt shops are very important to the quilting community-we need to visit them regularly!!!! Whenever I visit my sister in Wild Rose WI we make a trip to Appleton-Menasha and visiting Primitive Gatherings is always a must!!! Love your shop and all your designs.
I would love to win a copy of this book. I love scrappy quilts.
I saw a couple of quilts I would like to make. Nancy Pleimann
I would love to win the book! The quilts featured are just awesome…. thank you for the chance.
Would love to add this book to my collection!
To me a quilt book is a treasure to enjoy over and over again. A SIGNED copy is a cherished keepsake to be passed to the next generation. I remain hopeful…..
That looks like a great book. I would love to win it.
Sisterhood of Scraps… what a wonderful name for the book!
I didn’t see this book in your booth at R2CA.
I did purchase a book though in scraps.
This one looks great! I hope I win it.
Thank you 😁
I admire this book each time it is posted. What a sweet concept!
Thank you for sharing the video of the quilts in the book – very inspiring!!
I got the great chance to see you at the quilt show. I would love to win this book.
The video was wonderful – thank you for sharing all that inspiration! Of course, I would love to have a copy – will wait and see if I have to order it???
My favorite quilt from the cover is the top row right, the pretty pink one. I love it! I like all the quilts, that one just reaches out to me. Do you sign books that you have quilts in? I have a blue and white quilts book with one of your quilts in it, and wanted to know if I sent it to you, would you sign it for me?
The book looks like a good one. I love your B3 as you made it- the blue is just perfect! I need a blue quilt in my life now.
Love your block! The dark background is really striking!
Such beautiful quilts in the book, my fingers are crossed for the win ;-D
The cover of this book IS awesome!!! I have tons of scraps….this book would be perfect!!!
great site! new to Moda Block Heads and so excited! Would absolutely love a copy of this book 🙂
Love it! One way or the other, I’m getting this book! Scraps are like people, they CAN work well together even when it seems they don’t appear to agree.
I agree with you about putting the shops out of business. I have had a struggle with notions since the “J” store is 14 miles away. Let’s all think ahead and keep our local quiltshops in business. I am a small shop in KY but I have wonderful prices. I would also like to have the book. Paula in KY
I would love to win Lissa’s book and join the Sisterhood of quilters , though I do believe I have been in it awhile already. Thank you for your generous offer.
