Jump-Start Your Quilting Book Blog Tour ~ Last Day and Giveaway!

Wecome to Hollyhock Quilts!  Today is the last day for the Jump-Start Your Quilting Book Blog Tour.  Thanks to all of you for sticking around to see more about this fun new book!  I am reviewing the Fancy Flowers quilt designed by Judith Sandstom.  Be sure to scroll down to the end of the post to find out about a give-away!

First of all, I LOVE the colors!  So Springy!!  Secondly, I love quilts that incorporate two different block designs.  You get so many interesting things going on.  This one uses a Square in a Square alternating with Framed Flowers blocks.  I also really like that the pieces are big enough to show off large print fabrics.

This quilt would be a great STASH quilt due to the fact that it uses Fat 1/4s and other larger pieces of fabric.  Of course, it would be great for scraps, too!

You've seen lots of great projects from this book all week.  Thanks to the following bloggers that contributed: 

Victoria at Bumble Beans Inc.
Linda at Quilt Cookies
Jessi at L+J Blog 
Pat Sloan at Let's Sew
Melanie at Texas Freckles
and Aunt Pitty Pat at Aunt Pitty Pat's
