Strip Smart Book Blog Tour

Hello everyone!

Well I'm the end of the trail of an awesome blog tour of the Teachers Pet Strip-Smart Quilt Book Tour.

It's a beautiful day today, so I grabbed Kathy's book, took it out on the deck and began to read the introduction on her ruler thoughts. That is "SO ME" on passing up rulers of any kind because of the though of now I have to figure out how to use the ruler, and I just don't have the time.

I am amazed on how Kathy designed all these fun, fast, and easy scrappy quilts she has been talking about for months. Now I know it's all about the ruler and her talent.

Ok, so my thing is applique. I absolutely love the scrappy look quilts. Here's my problem; I end up matching all my cut pieces and don't end up with a scrappy looking quilt. Tara from Sew Unique Creations has been trying to teach me scrappy. I buy a lot of Taras' fabric with good intentions, but there it sits on a pile until this book and ruler comes along. Kathy, I'll finally get to sew a scrappy quilt without, "does the piece look good here", or "will this really look scrappy when I'm finished?"

"I LOVE THE BOOK AND RULER"   Thank You KATHY!!!

As for my favorite quilt in the book, hmmmmm hard to pick just one. So I'll go with the "Brownies a La Mode", its a quilt I'm going to sew with my granddaughters when they come for a week in July. But, my favorite is "Pick up Sticks" scrappy.

I thought it would be great to start a quilt for my grandson, "scrappy of course", he loves to fish. So I started sewing 2-1/2" strips together and here is the block I came up with, using my gone fishing fabric line.



This book and ruler are so easy to use. You all are going to love it. Kathy is so creative and the quilts are wonderful. I've known Kathy for years and she is huge on fun. So remember to leave a comment here on our blog for today's chance to win one of Kathy's Strip-Smart Books and ruler.

Kathy will be drawing the names herself and announcing the winners! How cool is that? And I'm told there is a grand prize too!

                                                                 "WINNING!"

If you want to learn more about Kathy's new book, you can view her website at http://www.the-teachers-pet.com/ or her blog at http://www.theteacherspet.typepad.com/

Take Time for Quilting and enjoy the outdoors and enjoy Kathy's new book.
It's awsome fun!

  7. Love the block you made with the ruler!
    Is this a block for your grandson's quilt-to-make?
    This block does look scrappy to me, so I think you are staring to understand it ;o)
    Too bad this is the last post to introduce Kathy's smart book and ruler. It was fun seeing and hearing something different about it along the tour!
    Have a lovely day (o:

  12. I sew with Quilts of Valor, and I've told some of the ladies about this book and ruler. I'd love to win these, both for my use, and for Quilts of Valor use. We get so many fabrics donated that 'scrappy' is really the only way we can go. These patterns look sew cute. Thanks ladies for the giveaway.

  13. I love the block you made with your fabric and the ruler-any guy (especially my guy) would love to have that quilt, when done. It was nice to see the quilt square made up of a different patterned fabric. I really think by now that I could master that ruler as I am like you-scardy cat to try something new.

  25. Hi Debbie, I love your block. I think it is the first one to use all "colored" fabric (not a white with it) and it looks great that way.

Thanks to Kathy for her generosity.

  107. I've visited each of the blogs in this tour about Kathy's new book other than one that closed their comments the day of their 'tour day' although I could still read. I've loved seeing each person commenting about the book and seeing the different quilts from this book they thought was their favorite. The ruler is just too cool and definitely one I must get soon as well as this book unless I am lucky enough to win.

    I really love your fabric used to create the block. I really love the brown fabric in your block. That is very cool with so many uses other than a fishing type quilt.

    Thank you for being part of the tour and showing off your fabrics too.

  157. Father's Day messed up my schedule, but was excited to check out this last hop stop today. I love your block and that fabric is awesome! You've got one lucky grandson! I checked out this book at my local quilt shop this afternoon, but said I have to wait and see if I am lucky enough to win it! Every page looked familiar as we've become so acquainted in the past week. Can't wait to give it a try!!

  162. I love your fish block! I too have trouble just being scrappy. I try to make sure my scraps look right next to each other missing the whole point I guess. It's still all good though!

  164. I am impressed and can't wait to buy this ruler and book. I am a notion junkie and love anything that makes the blocks easier and the points match up better. Thanks Cindy
