"Quilt Big" by Jemima Flendt + Giveaway!

Blog tour time again my dears! Have you heard? Jemima from Tied With A Ribbon has a new quilting book out and it's all kinds of awesome. All quilts in this book are made up of super-sized quilt blocks which is perfect for beginners and those after a fast finish.

I love the concept of this book so much - the blocks are all traditional quilt blocks but the extra large block sizes is what makes the book unique. There are some great block combinations and quilt layouts too. Oh she is so clever, that Jemima!

For my project I chose the Mosaic block and made four of them in the pink colorway from my Summer Blush collection for Riley Blake Designs. The size of this quilt is perfect as a picnic rug or a playmat for a little one.

Clearly someone didn't get the memo that she isn't allowed in my sewing room and had to get involved when I was taking these photos. Our ragdoll kitten Sugar, she is such a cheeky little minx!

Here are a few other projects in the book that have caught my eye - to give you a feel for what else you may expect to find inside the covers.

Now, how about a GIVEAWAY ? Courtesy of Aurifil, I have two spools of 50wt thread from Jemima's thread collection that will go to one lucky winner. To enter, just leave a comment on the Mosaic quilt post on my Instagram feed. I will randomly pick the winner on Monday - good luck!

Here's the rest of the blog tour schedule if you would like to see more projects from this lovely book! Enjoy!

  1. This book is marvelous! Your quilt is beautiful, Sedef
    Sugar is a cutiepie. I have two cornish Rex kitties, old Miles age 9 and crazy silly kitten Princess who is one year. She wants to fly.

  2. Thank you so much Sedef for taking part in the Quilt Big Blog Tour. This Mini Quilt is just so gorgeous and I love that Machine Quilting design you gave it.

  3. I love the idea of bigger blocks. So I quickly signed up on the Quilting Company newsletter for a pattern from you called the Supersize Ohio Block Mini Quilt by you for free. Said this was to be a 3 week virtual event. I printed off the 2 pages telling me all about what was coming. Problem: # 1, it didn't date itself. So I just kept waiting. But I got nothing, no pattern, no 3 installment instructions. Nada. I am disappointed to say the least. If you can help in any way, I would appreciate it. This looks like something I really wanted to use.
