Turnabout Patchwork Bloghop (and giveaway)




I'm happy to be amongst the bloggers involved in promoting Terersa Mairal Barreu's new book, Turnabout Patchwork.

Teresa's had fun using simple and traditional (with a twist) blocks.
They're sewn up, cut up, turned about and sewn up again.
There's lots of different configurations and it's quite fun to play around like this. Of course, the colours and fabrics used give even more options.
Did I mention it would be a great book for the newer quilter?
My project was Flying Butterflies, using the Modern Shoofly block.
I thought this pattern would make a pretty girl's quilt and because I had a few pretties sitting in my scrap bin, decided a scrappy style one would be perfect.
So I got busy;
Sewing up —
cutting up —

turning about —

and sewing back together again.
My finished top —
I was really pleased with how quickly this top came together - it was nice to have a project that didn't take forever to make!
I'm thinking of heading back to the cutting board and making one more row (as Teresa had suggested in the book!), just to make it a bit more of a useful size.

And now for the fun part - the giveaways!

If you'd like to win an electronic copy of Turnabout Patchwork simply leave me a comment on this post. If you are a no-reply commenter, please make sure your email address is included in your comment.

AND... Teresa has offered one of her digital patterns for a second giveaway! If you'd like one of these, visit her pattern shop *here* then let me know which one is your favourite. I'll do a second drawing for this prize. There are several there I've got my eye on :-)

I like what you did with your pattern choice...now I want to try it. Today I like the "Storm at Sea" from Teresa.

Liz Horgan said...

I love your butterflys!
I have made Teresa's four seasons of the heart and love this technique!

Liz Horgan said...

I have a few of Teresa's pattern, and would love to add Kaleidoscope to my collection!
Thanks!

Love your butterflies.

Strippy Hearts is my pattern of choice.

Thanks.

That's a fun little block and the resulting quilt is so cute. You gave great photos of your process as well.

Fiona said...

that is such a clever idea for a book... it's on my wish list now and I love the butterflies you are making...
and as for her patterns they are so great... I think the Cog in the Wheel is my favourite…

Barb Neiwert said...

So fun to stitch, cut, play! Your blocks turned out great, and the others seem fun as well. Looking at SewnUpPatterns, I'd jump at the chance to make Storm At Sea!

Farm Quilter said...

Your butterfly quilt turned out beautifully!! I love modern quilts, so her Trellis is calling to me!!

Leslie said...

I love your butterflies...the layout and especially your choice of colors. Thank you for sharing.

Rosalind Gutierrez said...

Clever and colorful butterflies and my favorite pattern is "whirlwind." rozz01(at)cox(dot)net

Jayne said...

This is a lovely butterfly block. I really like the Trellis pattern

Carol Andrews said...

Your scrappy butterflies are so sweet and I agree with the idea of adding another row to make it larger. I love Teresa quilts and have made Night Eyes. Right now I am torn between Cog of the Wheel or the Storm at Sea patterns. I am also seeing many on this Hop that are being added to my To Do List!

Lovely quilt Raewyn. Very pretty.

Kathryn said...

I'm always up for timesaving ideas for making charity quilts. This looks great. Thanks.

Kathryn said...

I like the Trellis pattern. Very modern. Thanks for the second giveaway.

Donna Vunderink said...

I love your quilt! All of the patterns from the book that I've seen so far (this one included) would make easy and quick baby quilts for charity donations. I really like Teresa's Cog in a Wheel pattern. It looks challenging.

Sandra Walker said...

I love how your quilt turned out! What a cool technique; I've been following a few of the blogs in it, but haven't seen them all. I'd love a copy of her book - fast is my speed right about now. :-)

Sandra Walker said...

As for which pattern, I can't get it down lower than three, ha! Cog in the Wheel, Trellis and Storm at Sea Star are my faves. Thanks Raewyn, and will be watching to see how you quilt this up!

retdairyqueen said...

Oh I do love the way your quilt top has turned out
Well done

Gretchen Wylegala said...

Very pretty. I need a little girl quilt, and may try my hand at this one!

JANET said...

Cute quilt. Love the colors you used!

Suz J said...

This looks like so much fun... what a great idea for a book. I like the Cog in a wheel pattern.

Sewgirl said...

Your quilt turned out great. Yes, another row would make it more functional if you didn't want it for a wall quilt. Thanks for sharing!

Beth said...

Your quilt turned out very cute; my nieces would really love the way it looks.

I'd be delighted to have a copy of the "Trellis" pattern.

GranChris said...

I love the quilt. Hard to choose a pattern maybe Cog in a Wheel pattern but the Trellis would be a good one too.

Leeanne said...

Gorgeous!

I'm so impressed by the different looks everyone gets using the same starting point.This looks like so much fun, what a great idea for a book

myzbarb said...

Gosh there are so many possibilities with this 'turnabout.' Another row is a good idea. I'm fascinated by the 'Textured Quilt.'

Cynthia Knapp said...

Good job on your quilt. This would be such a sweet baby quilt. My favorite from her Betsy shop is Whirlwind. cknapp3626(at)sbcglobal(dot)net

Debra Campbell said...

Definitely would appeal to a young lady - beautiful.

Kathy H said...

I love how your quilt turned out. So sweet. My favorite pattern is the win my heart pattern. This book looks like it has some great quilts in it with easy to follow directions.

You have been busy. This turned into a delightful quilt. And very girlie!

The turnabout book looks like a great purchase, will add this to my list. Love the quilt you have made with your blocks and the fabric that you have used :)

Willow Olson said...

You made such a cheerful quilt <3 I took a look at the patterns and Night Eyes is the one that I think I would make over and over again :)

Gloria said...

That would be a lovely block for a crib quilt. I see it in lemons and soft greens so suitable for a boy or girl.
Thank you for a chance to win your inspiration!
