Diane shared several quilts from the book and also gave us a few teasers about a new book she has in the works. Each chapter of Scrap Quilt Secrets focuses on a key element for success with S.C.R.A.P.S.
Diane is funny and smart, but she's also a generous quilter. Her website is overflowing with free patterns and tutorials. I love that she created a mystery quilt out of bits and pieces from the patterns in her book to create the medallion quilt (above).
How awesome are these Gift Baskets made of selvedges and rick rack? I love this quilt and may have to choose this pattern for my growing collection of selvedges.
Diane likes to have fun with her quilts, even on the back. In addition to interesting piecing and "turndown surprise" - the bit of piecing that shows when you fold back the edge of quilt - Diane also adds whimsy with her labels. Whether it's a cute border, a leftover block, or a motif carried over from the front, each quilt gets Diane's finishing touch.
Keep Diane in mind when your guild is looking for a fun speaker with loads of great quilts to share! You can also follow her on Facebook or Instagram.
