"Makin' Me Crazy" (above) by Victoria Findlay Wolfe.
Do you love improvisational quilts? Liberated quilts? Maverick quilts? String quilts?
Whatever you call them, aren't they the best? They're my favorites!
Now there's a book full of inspiration for improvisational quilt lovers!
The very best book on improv quilts is: 15 Minutes of Play by my friend Victoria Findlay Wolfe.
If you want to be inspired, you owe it to yourself to get a copy of her book.
Scraps never looked so good! This is improvisational piecing reinvented - learn how to create your own creatively-collaged swatches of fabric in just 15 minutes a day. As you play, you'll sharpen your design skills and learn more about combining colors and prints in new ways. Discover just how distinctive classic blocks like Sawtooth Star or Flying Geese can be, when they're constructed with more spunk and spontaneity!
You can win one right here by leaving a comment on this post. (US winners receive a hard copy of the book. International winners receive a Electronic copy of the book, direct from C&T.)

I made this red and white version (below) a few years ago and I love it. There are 4 of my quilts in Victoria's book (this red and white quilt is not in the book). I'm so thrilled to be part of this project.
This book is going to be a classic.
