By the Bundle Giveaway

By the Bundle
I am not sure exactly where to start and you guys know that I have zero expertise in quilts, quilt making and therefore quilt books. But seriously .....

By the Bundle

The images alone in this book by Emma jean Jansen are enough to warrant the purchase (oh yeah and the stunning quilts).
 The quilt pictured above is my absolute favourite from the book. You guys know that I work with Emma though both Ella Blue and Creative Abundance but you may not know we live about 5 minutes from each other ! I was lucky to see all these quilts in the planning and making stages and this one was my favourite right from the start. In fact I currently have all of Emma's test blocks here at my house and was going to post them and pretend I made them.... but you guys are just not that gullible.

By the Bundle

Emma's book is designed to inspire quilters to use their pre-cut bundles to make stunning modern quilts. The book contains quilts for every level of quilter, from some simpler quick piecing methods with rectangles and squares, to curved piecing, raw edge applique and foundation paper piecing.

By the Bundle

By the Bundle is produced by Lucky Spool Media and can be purchased at all good quilt stores and the usual online places... I believe the author has a handful of copies in her Etsy shop if you were looking for a signed copy! (I won't tell you what she wrote in my signed copy !!!)

See - total favourite!!!
Anyway, I have a copy of the book to give away (not the one with the cheeky inscription). There are no hoops to jump through- just leave a comment to be entered. You could tell me which of the quilts you like best.The winner will be chosen at random and emailed.

Thanks everyone the winner is I am.

  4. Wow! As someone who is new to the world of quilting, I confess that I love fat quarter bundles because I am not confident in my ability to match fabrics. Of the quilts I was able to see photos of, in addition to the raindrop quilt, I love the one pictured on the back cover that has the rows of circles. Thanks for bringing this book to my attention!

  5. Love the raindrop quilt, that design would make a fabulous quilt for teenage cancer kids. Looks like a great book

  6. Emma has certainly excelled herself with the eye candy in her book Boxes and Crosses is my favourite, but I'm often drawn to those colours. It is very generous for her to do this giveaway. Thanks to you both.

  7. I was lucky enough to see all the quilts in person at a trunk show a couple of months ago. They are beautiful! I think the one with the rows of different-sized circles was my favourite, but really, each one seemed more amazing than the last as she opened them up.

  10. Interesting how the right photo, in the right location can make a quilt look more than the sum of its parts. Thanks for the opportunity to win.

  16. My fav is the teardrops but Boxes and Crosses is more achievable for me. The colours and scenery inspire me to find my quilting mojo, which has been MIA for a wee while. What a beautiful book. Thanks.

  21. Wowsers, that's a gorgeous book! I have to agree with you, the raindrops quilt grabs me by the heart strings... Also, the rainbow pyramids quilt is absolutely my kind of quilt, I would make that in a flash! I'd fiddle of course, play around with the gradient, make it my own :-) Thanks so much for sharing Jodie :-)

  30. What a wonderful book! I adore the raindrop quilt!

  31. It's years since I made a big quilt - and that one was hand-appliqued and hand-quilted. This book transports me to the 21st century and a big burst of inspiration. All the quilts are wonderful but the raindrops quilt has stolen my heart. And the photos are terrific. Thanks, Jodie and Emma!

  42. I have drooled over this book many times. I just love all the quilts! I am quite new to quilting and dont have any real quilting books. This book would be an absolute asset to my library. Precuts are my favourite buys, you can do so much with them! Thank you so much for the opportunity, and congratulations to Emma Jean Janson on her lovely book. She is such a talented lady.

  45. I don't know the name of the quilt, but it is at the back of the book. It involves many spiky pieces. I looked through the book, and did not buy it. Now it is going to be hard to find. 😳 I think the raindrops is another favorite. Should have bought it, when I saw it!!
