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.

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.

  117. 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.

  181. 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

  183. 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.

  184. 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!
