Pixel Play: 15 Quilt Projects for Kids, Family & Home (US Winners Only)

Author: Emily Cier
Publisher: C&T Publishing

Pixelate your patchwork by piecing together fabric strips in a new way. Pixelated imagery is part of our pop culture—Emily Cier helps you bring it to your family with her cheerful quilt designs using your favorite solids. Use this unique style of strip piecing to make pictures of friendly fish, dastardly pirates, and beautiful butterflies much more fun! Kids of all ages (grown-ups too) will love these quilts for the crib, the bed, or just for snuggling. Includes cutting guides and Kona color charts.

Inventive Denim is an original pattern design company, specifically featuring recycled denim jeans. Owner and designer Heather Banks has developed five sewing/quilting patterns in the past year and is especially proud of the pattern, The Denim Circle Rag Quilt. She also turned this pattern into a table runner, and developed and manufactured a die which takes all of the work out of cutting the required denim circles for either the table runner or quilt.

Inventive Denim is giving away four patterns, plus a table runner pattern and kit made from recycled denim jeans. (Prize value: $60)
