I have a few children's quilts to make and these patterns are perfect for them.


I will also wonder and think about trying a new technique for years and then finally dive in....only to discover it isn't that hard after all. Hopefully the inspiration in this book will push me further. Thanks for the chance to win!

Oh wow... this book just keeps looking better and better!


Awesome book, so bold and beautiful!


Your blog post about this book made me want to read it! I think I need to let loose on my so far structured quilting. Thanks.

What an inspiration for me since I don't do well with straight lines...
the quilts are beautiful. I like you have many bold prints in my stash
just crying to be one of these beauties. Thanks for an opportunity to
have the book.



Oh wow, that book looks amazing! I love your blocks. I had never heard of her before so I'm excited to discover a new quilter!


Can't wait to own one! Your blocks look great!


Not only have a found a new design icon (Sujata), but I've also found quilt blogs that I had not known about. The tour has been great fun, and I hope I'm the lucky "random" winner on one of the blogs.


I would really, really love this book; if I don't win it, I will have to save up money to buy it! sarah@forrussia.org


Great review of an awesome book. And how cool that you tried her zig zag technique as part of your review! we learn by doing, don't we? Anyway, you have inspired me to give it a try also. Thank you!

I, too, am very rigid in my quilting. A book like this might do me some good. I'll have to add it to my list of books to pickup. Thanks!


I need to be set free from my rulers and other OCD quilting behaviors. Love the quilts in this book. Perfect for all those solids in the stash.

Thanks for your approach to this bog tour---fun to see one of you actually do Sujata's techniques. Makes me realize that I "need" this book even more than I thought I did yesterday!!

I've been following The Root Connection for years as well and can't wait to get a copy of Sujata's book. Your review does indeed make me believe it's the one chocolate I should not resist :)
