A Judy Martin Give-Away!

Extraordinarycover
Over the past several months I have enjoyed email conversation with one of my own most cherished "Quilting Rock Stars”, Judy Martin!

Can you imagine my shock and quilter’s heart flutters when I received a friendly conversational email from Judy introducing herself to me (As if I didn’t know who she was!)  and telling me how much she enjoyed MY quilts.

Holy cow, Judy’s book “Scrap Quilts” published in 1985 was one of the first books on my shelves. I was 23 when I bought it. I still have it --pages worn and dog-eared and oh, so cherished.

Her quilts whet my appetite from the very beginning, and here she was introducing herself to me in such a friendly way via email, just to say hello.



She drew the parallels between us in the following ways:

we both love scrap quilts
we both own sizable stashes
we both write quilt pattern books
we both design original quilts in the traditional style
we are not afraid of quilts with a gazillion pieces
we both started making quilts as teenagers
we have both written for Quiltmaker
 
And little did she know that one little email made my day, my week, my month, my year ---yes, Judy Martin is still MY Rock Star!
 
So when her hubby Steve contacted me to ask if I’d like to offer one of Judy’s new books, Extraordinary Log Cabin Quilts as a GIVE-AWAY to one of my readers ---my reply was an astounding, AUTOMATIC YES!
 
I wouldn't be where I am without the lessons I learned and the inspiration I received through Judy Martin’s books. 

These are NOT your ORDINARY Log Cabin quilts...

Within the pages of EXTRAORDINARY Log Cabin Quilts you will find:


  • 15 quilt patterns, each in queen or king and wall sizes.
  • 200 illustrations of color and set variations for these quilts, each quilt a new Log Cabin variation with a pieced border designed to enhance it.
  • big color photos of the quilt plus detail shots
  • easy-to-use block diagrams, with pressing arrows
  • a whole quilt diagram for each quilt size in the patterns
  • quilting suggestions
  • pattern ratings
  • a chart to help you plan these quilts in other sizes, with fat quarter requirements
  • a chart listing Log Cabin quilts from basic Log Cabin blocks, in 24 sizes, with yardage
  • a chart listing practical quilt sizes for various mattress sizes
  • tips covering every aspect of making a Log Cabin quilt, from rotary cutting to organizing logs, to chain piecing, opposing joints, to checking your block layout.
  • links to free videos, such as Judy Martin’s “Tips for Successful Log Cabin Quilts.”
  • a ten-page, lavishly illustrated chapter on value and color to help you choose your favorite pattern based on the design instead of the color, and to help you apply your favorite color scheme to the pattern (Most of the color schemes are mix-and-match!)

128 pages, soft cover, $27.95 retail U.S. Order at www.judymartin.com or call 1-800-642-5615.
 
MariposaLC
 
Mariposa Log Cabin


15 brand-new Log Cabin patterns, each in multiple sizes. You’ll find clear directions with lots of construction diagrams, accurate yardage, alternate coloring and setting suggestions, huge color photos plus close-up detail shots, and quilting ideas. Up-front material includes important help for perfecting your seam allowance plus a pictorial discussion of color and value.
The quilts are stunning….and the instructions are clear and precise (as is always the case with Judy’s work).

I will do the drawing of the lucky winner this coming THURSDAY from Germany ---how exciting!

Make sure that you also leave your email address if it isn't visible in your profile so I can contact you.  No email address means I have to draw someone else!
 
And you know what would be even better?  Please mention your favorite Judy Martin quilt or quilt book/pattern in your comment.  It’s my hope that she’ll stop by and read what you have to say, and YOU will make HER day.

Doesn't it feel great to give something back to someone who has given so much to the quilting industry?  I honestly believe that I am the quilter I am because of Judy’s love of scrap quilts.

Thanks for the chance to win!

Mary Ellen said...

I saw my first Judy Martin log cabin quilt at a quilt store in Indianapolis some years back. The store was going out of business and unfortunately I got there when it was just about down to the bare walls. There was, however, a stunning quilt on the wall that stopped me dead in my tracks. It was Shoreline Log Cabin from Judy's 2007 book, "Log Cabin Quilt Book." I promptly bought the book, intending to make the quilt.I was chagrined to find that the quilt was beyond my abilities at the time. I doubted being able to keep all the pieces organized. The number of patches, the variety of patches, all the various hues and values and colors involved. Sheesh. Big Sky Log Cabin would have been my speed, but it didn't draw me in - lovely though it is - like Shoreline did. I would love to have this latest book by Judy and were I to win it, it could be the kick start I need to finally tackle Shoreline. But now I see new ones that entice me. I especially like Minnesota and Paducah. The red, white, and blue version of Main Street Log Cabin is also calling me. Peaceful Valley, too.

Pieces of Time said...

Judy's quilts are beautiful! The book would be a great addition to my reference library.

I am a fan of Judy's too...I own several of her books. I am amazed by the photos from the new book! She has taken traditional designs like Winding Ways and turned them into log cabins! Very, very cool.

would love to win Judy's new book I love log cabin quilts. hope to meet her in April when she is in my area.

Ele said...

My tired old brain has problems grasping things anymore, so a vividly described pattern would be a huge help. I love Judy's patterns and always felt they were beyond my abilities, but having the book in hand would help lots. Thanks for the chance.

Wow, I didn't know it was possible to make so many different designs using the log cabin block! I would love to have this book.

Lesauri said...

Thanks Bonnie and Judy, I have several of her books and have completed a couple of her quilts. Log Cabin designs are my favourite so it would be lovely to win this book.

Aliceart said...

I, too, have admired Judy Martin for a long time. The variety and design of those log cabins are amazing. I thought I was done with log cabin quilts, but I can now see that I have more to make! Thank you to you both for this wonderful giveaway.

Oh my I am not one to buy every quilt book out there, but Judy's book appeals to me. That winding ways log cabin.......................................what is not to like. Santa just ordered a new hoop for me for Christmas, and if I won this book someone would have to pinch me cause I would think I would have died and gone to heaven. Doesn't get better than this! I agree Bonnie that you and Judy are true heros in the quilt world.!

I love Judy Martin's quilts! I love how she challenges the quilter with exciting designs. I would love to win her latest book.

I have got to make the Paduca Log Cabin! If I don't win the book, it's going on my wish list. Think that gives Santa enough time to deliver?!?!?! Thanks, Judy and Bonnie.

I own most of Judy's books and her CD, and have made several of her wonderful quilts. I am currently hand quilting the leaves quilt from the cover of an older book and still love the look...it is going to a daughter who fell in love with it many years ago. She made one of Judy's quilts at age 11! Great patterns and wonderful directions! To add the new book to my stash would be wonderful! candrasowder@yahoo.com

My very first quilt was a log cabin quilt my mother made for me to take to college. I was is blues and yellows. I deeply treasured it. I would love to make one of these extraordinary quilts to return the favor almost 30 years later to my favorite quilting buddy..My Mom!

Oooh! I love all of Judy Martin's quilts! If I HAD to pick one, it might be Snake River because that was the first quilt of hers I ever saw, and I fell in love with it! She is, indeed a quilting super star, as are you! Thanks for the chance to win!

Oh Bonnie,please count me in for this draw. Log Cabin has always been my "first love" and favourite.My very first quilt was a Log Cabin and I've made a few more since that one. I love Judy's designs and would sure like to add this book to my library.

MaLan said...

Hi Bonnie, Judy Martin was one of my first inspirations, I still have her Scrap Quilts book dated from 1985..... always loved her scrappy quilt designs and bought a lot of her books. Great that two awesome quilters found together, you both are Quilt Stars....enjoy Europe and Germany

Those quilts are amazing! I haven't heard of her before and now I will have to check her out. Thank you for bringing her to my attention!

Oh my, oh my, oh my, a new Judy Martin book! I think it is so great her husband is promoting her book. I don't have a favorite Judy quilt. I have fallen in love with every one of them that I have seen on blogs or at quilt shows. What an honor it would be to win Judy's book and make one or two of her wonderful designs. Thanks for the giveaway.

Lynne said...

What a great opportunity! Thank you Bonnie for making this available. A log cabin quilt is the first one I actually completed - being a gift for my dad. It gave me the confidence to try new designs, but log cabin remains my favorite. Who knew you could get so many fantastic designs from that simple pattern?

Thank you for your fabulous contribution to the scrappy quilters of the world!
Lynne

Ruth said...

I just purchased her book, Creative Quilts so I could make Shakespear in the Park. A girl can dream can't she? Anyway buying the book was the first step...who knows.
I'm so impressed by the pictures you shared from her new book. I would love to own that book. Thank you for the opportunity to win it!

Joye with an e said...

I am so glad you featured this book today. I used to get Judy's newsletters but unsubscribed when I moved 18 months ago. I will visit her site and subscribe again. Meanwhile, I would have a hard time listing a favorite--they are all lovely. Thanks for the drawing.

capecodder33 said...

Thank s to both of you for an opportunity to win this book...I agree, Judy Martin is a rock-star quilter!!! I check her website often to see what her BOM or QOM is....

Kathryn Knox said...

Hi! Judy is a wonderful designer. Her book is a collector's item, plan on checking out her other books. Thanks for this giveaway and introducing me to Judy. Her Pinterest page is awesome.

Laura said...

I love Judy's quilts. I made her Snake River log cabin, and won a 2nd place ribbon and a viewer's choice ribbon! Would love to have this book also.

tudorc said...

I have several of Judy's books on my shelf as well and there's always room for one more, not to mention that I love log cabins but have never made one!

madquilter65 said...

I, too, think Judy Martin is a ROCK STAR! I have most of her books & am inspired by her designs and color choices. Would love to win this and make the Grandpa's Log Cabin pattern. Beautiful!

MarchAnn said...

I am leaning towards Shakespeare in the Park too, I love the movement. I am doing a One Block Wonder for the movement myself. I am new to quilting and would love to add one of Judy's book to my growing stacks of books.

Vivian said...

I've never met a Judy Martin book I didn't love. And I've never seen a Judy Martin-inspired quilt that didn't take my breath away. Thanks for the chance to win her book. Many of her quilts are on my bucket list, but "Shakespeare in the Park" is at the top.
