Welcome to the first day of the Scrap-Appliqué Playground blog Book-A-Around!

For the next 10 days we’re going to have a fabulous time zipping through cyberspace to enjoy a bunch of different quilting bloggers and their own takes on the methods and projects of Scrap-Appliqué Playground.

Start here each day and I’ll send you off on your virtual trip to far-flung places. Each day there’ll be a chance to win a copy, so be sure to follow the whole tour!

Today we’re starting off in Bothell, Washington, home of the book’s publisher Martingale and its quilting imprint That Patchwork Place.

Martingale does a gorgeous blog called Stitch This! that a lot of the staff members contribute to. The High Webmeister is Jenny Wilding Cardon, Martingale content editor and a successful author herself.

Today Jenny let me write a guest post at Stitch This! about how Scrap-Appliqué Playground went from idea to book. Go on over now! See you there!

Stitch This!

    This is so inspiring…..I never gave this kind of thought to using up my many pounds of scraps….(you just never know when you’ll need something others would throw away!) Thank you for the inspiration.

    I love the idea of creating new fabric out of scraps. I have a pile of scraps growing in my sewing room. I can’t wait to start working on this idea.
