Win another new book! Alphabet Applique

On Tuesday we introduced our new fabric manipulation book, Dimensional Denim (you can still enter to win a copy!) Today I want to introduce our other new book, Alphabet Applique! As the name implies, this book is for all you applique aficionados out there (and those that want to learn!).


This book has a very interesting beginning. On one of her vintage expeditions, Amy came across an old alphabet quilt made in the 1930’s. She instantly fell in love with the designs and brainstormed how they could be updated for the modern consumer. As she researched the origin of the design she linked it back to Nancy Page. Page was a home economist who wrote a nationally syndicated newspaper column. In the late 1920’s Page introduced the Nancy Page Quilt Club and started publishing weekly quilt block patterns. The alphabet quilt that Amy found was one of her designs.


The stylized designs lent themselves to modernization, creating a fun, fresh quilt with a vintage twist. The blocks use a combination of applique and embroidery techniques. Many of the applique designs can be made using scraps of fabric you already have! The alphabet quilt blocks are so cute, we wanted to give you other projects in which to use them. You will find instructions for baby blocks, tea towels, bibs and even wall art.

This contest is now closed.
