101 Patchwork Projects + Giveaway!

It's thrilling to have a Bricolage + Butter project featured in Interweave's 101 Patchwork Projects that hits stands this week. Remember this composition notebook? The tutorial got a makeover and now you can make it, along with 100 other projects from the magazine! The projects range from simple to more complex and there is definitely something for everyone.

Check out page 10!

I found several projects that I'm anxious to make--including projects from Ashley and Latifah who are such inspiration to me. Plus, I was delighted to be reminded of the adorable dishtowels from I love Patchwork that have been on my "to-make" list for months!

To celebrate, we'll be giving away a copy of 101 Patchwork Projects! To enter the giveaway, please leave a comment on this post through April 18th and let us know your favorite thing to make--it can be by sewing, knitting, cooking, paper crafting etc. We'll randomly select a winner on the 20th and send you some B+B goodies! Enjoy!

WoW!!! How fun!! You're practically famous! :) Let's see...my favorite thing to make. That's a toughie.... My favorite recent thing I've made is hotpads from my bag-o-scraps. Totally replaced all of my grimy grungie old hotpads, and used up scraps at the same time.

Way to go Jamie! :) My favorite thing to make is Triple Chip Cookies because 1.) I enjoy the process of creaming the ingredients, adding them one by one, 2.) I love to eat the dough, 3.) I love to eat or share the cookies, and 4.) I enjoy time in the kitchen creating.

MG said...

My favorite thing to make.... Tollouse cookies. Oh, did you mean in the fabric category? Then it would be quilts.

KatieB said...

Wow! That's wonderful! I just took a peak at this magazine last week at Borders. I made my mom a covered notebook last year for Christmas...I wish I'd had your pattern then as I had to make up my own. Let's see...my favorite thing to make...that's so hard since I sew, scrapbook, and make cards. Right now, my favorite things to make are probably quilts. They take longer, but it's so satisfying to see them take shape. Congratulations!
