Win a copy of 1,2,3 Quilt! Take our poll and tell us about your favorite thing to sew…

on October 10 | in Books, Contests & Giveaways, Sewing Trends | by | with 57 Comments

We’ve shared Ellen Luckett Bakerโ€™s latest book 1, 2, 3 Quilt here before. The book follows the resounding success of Ellen’s 1, 2, 3 Sew, and includes 24 fun, new projects.

Projects in the book are organized by quilting shape and develop with Ellen’s โ€œbuilding-blockโ€ quilting method; you learn new quilting design skills as you sew with Ellen’s careful guidance and beautiful patterns.

Ellen joined us last month to celebrate the release of 1, 2, 3 Quilt with the gorgeous Flower Path Quilt Sew-Along. You can jump in and sew along any time! Here are links for Part One and Part Two.

Today we have a copy of 1, 2, 3 Quilt to give away! Take our poll below and tell us about your favorite thing to sew. We find our focus shifts from over time; a change in the season might prompt a passion for sewing something new or a new skill might take over our sewing room for awhile. What do you love to sew right now?! Don’t forget to tell us about your “other” in the comments…
