Free Quilt Book

I am thrilled again to have my 5th quilt book
 published by C&T Publishing.

The technique is Magic Add-A-Strip. Here is an example of the Magic Add-A-Strip technique.  This quilt is a tumbling block layout, which is made up of all diamond blocks.

When you slice the diamond block twice on the sides and add two 1" strips you create a block that looks like this. WOW that is a strip-a-dee-do-dah wonderfully simple quilt that looks complex.

By rotating the blocks and changing the colors I now have created the quilt "Who Spilt the Crayons?" that is pictured above.

Each one of my sisters, daughters and daughter-in-law 
made a project and added their own flair to it.  They could 
change rotation, placement of the block and could resize the 
block.  They also could add sashing or spacer blocks
 between the blocks. This is my quilt.

Here is my sister Julia's version.
