Lunch Hour Patchwork book & giveaway!

Hi friends!

How are you? How is the weather by you? We had some snow over the last couple of days and it has been cold. But the pup loves playing in the snow! So she and I have been outside a couple of times everyday just throwing a ball around and romping in the snow.

Well, she romps. I trudge.

Today I want to tell you about a new book out with Martingale called Lunch Hour Patchwork. It is filled with small projects you can whip up in a short period of time. And some are really just so stinkin’ cute. And I have a project in the book!


One project I really like is this Sister’s Choice Table Topper by Beth Bradley. I have always loved that block, and I like small table toppers for my coffee table AND I think I have some of those fabrics still in my stash. I might have to go make one of these!

Another fun one is this Tiny Trees Mini Quilt by Christa Watson. I know I have lots of green scraps I could use for this project.

And who doesn’t love Pinwheel blocks? They look great made into this Pretty Pinwheels Clutch by Melissa Mortenson.

And here is my project: Seaside Coasters. I love making fabric coasters and for these I even added binding. The binding kind of hugs the bottom of your glass to keep it safe.

There are a lot of really fun projects in the book and I am sure you will find a few you can’t wait to make, like maybe this cute Bluebird wall hanging by my friend Sandra Clemons?

p.p.s. I can’t wait to show you my new pattern, Sweet Spirals! I made the quilt using fabric from Sandra Clemons new line, Believe for Michael Miller Fabrics. The fabric has these great unicorns.

I have not been able to get a good picture of the whole quilt due to the weather, but once I have the picture, I will share. For now, here is a sneak peek of the border fabric!

  1. Yes! I want to make all of these projects that you’ve shown here! Nothing better than quick, fun projects to make, gift or use right away! Your coasters are awesome and could be made to match every room!

  2. So many fun projects! And your pup is really cute! We just got 10″ of snow (and more on the way), and my dog keeps losing the ball in the snow when we play fetch!

  3. Some of these patterns are amazing. So simple and so eye catching. I would love a copy of this book. These are just the type of projects I have been enjoying lately.

  4. I’m working on a queen size quilt for my daughter, a quick quilt project could be just the thing the break I need. Would like to get the quilt top down by June for my daughters birthday.

  5. Thanks so much for sharing your ideas. Cute puppy! We’ve learned a lesson not to house break a puppy in the winter!

  6. The blook looks full of lots of fun! Your peek of the sweet spirals is great – love that Michael Miller fabric you used too! Thanks!

  7. The projects in this book look so nice. I really like that there are some small projects that would be fun and I could use them as gifts. Your coasters are pretty, I need to make some and yours are inspiring. Thank you for the giveaway opportunity.

  8. I would love a copy of your ebook.

    Use the blue with the pink in your class at Lancaster AQS show. They are beautiful together.
