Skip the Borders Blog Tour and Giveaway!

Welcome!  This is the 7th stop on the Skip the Borders Blog Tour.   
Julie Herman is a quilter, teacher, pattern designer, blogger,
and "one girl on a mission to make life better with fabric".  
Yes, I can identify with that!

Just like the title of the book, Skip the Borders showcases 15 quilt designs all without borders.  The book is divided into three distinct section ~ One Block Quilts, Two Block Quilts and Outside the Block Quilts ~ and includes a comprehensive how-to section on piecing, making backings, and how to sew on labels. A whole chapter is dedicated to everything binding.  

Skip the Borders is Julie's first book and I imagine there will be more to come from this young designer.  Julie's eye for simple design and use of bold colors to support her designs is innovative.  This collection of border-less quilts showcases a modern aesthetic and is suitable for beginner as well as advanced quilters.

Checkerboard Dots by Julie Herman
: :  Now for some Questions as set by Julie : :

Question 1: Do you skip borders on your quilts?
I have had to go back into my archives to answer this question, but it seems like I do generally skip the borders.  There are a few designs that do have borders - like Labyrinth Quilt  and A Quilter's Palette Quilt, both have white sashing around a block design and a border was needed to complete to look of the quilt.

Question 2: Do you break some quilting rules? What’s the number one rule you break and why?
I am blissfully ignorant as to what most of the "rules" are, and advocate doing whatever work best for you.  I am largely self-taught and march to the beat of my own drum:  I am heavy handed with my steam iron, I don't pre-wash all of my fabrics, and probably my biggest ruler-breaker:  I don't pin.  Gasp!  I only use pins when machine stitching the binding, or when sewing the seam of a large quilt back.

Question 3: Do you use bias or straight of grain binding?
I use straight of grain binding.  My current phase of using stripey binding doesn't lend itself to bias binding either as I like my stripes to run perpendicular to the quilt edge.

GIVEAWAY DETAILS:
One lucky reader will win a copy of the Skip the Borders ebook by Julie Herman.


To be in the draw all you have to  do   is leave a comment on this post  (please ensure that an email address is available on your profile or is included in your comment -  NO EMAIL ADDRESS = NO VALID ENTRY).  International visitors are very welcome to enter!  Only one comment per person/email address will be eligible to enter the draw.

The draw will take place at 11am (AEST) on Wednesday 26 September 2012, at which time comments to this  post will be closed. The winner will be announced here on my blog the same day, and will also be contacted by email.

Good luck!

  19. I love all of these quilts that I am seeing from her book. It blows my mind that she has made all of these quilts at such a young age, and I'm still struggling to get so few done at my old age.. but I'm trying. I'll keep plugging away, and sooner or later I'll have more done.

  36. Hi Rita,

    I love your quilts and especially the Aneela Hooey fabric, as it would look so cute for a baby quilt for my 12 month baby. Unfortunately your quilts are so popular they are sold out.

    You have such a lovely colour aesthetic.

  61. Question 1: Do you skip borders on your quilts?
    Occasionally. It depends on the finished size I'm looking for.


    Question 2: Do you break some quilting rules? What’s the number one rule you break and why? I'm sure I break all sorts of rules! I'm self taught so I subscribe to "ignorance is bliss" :)


    ReplyDelete
  62. I am a fan of Julie's blog and love her patterns.

  64. I would love to win this giveaway! I discovered, when looking at my quilting past, that I apparently do use borders most of the time. Maybe this book will push me beyond the "usual."

  68. I have only been quilting for a bit over a year and I taught myself. In fact I know so little about the rules that I don't even know if I do bias or straight grain binding. I just do it how the book tells me to do it?!

    ReplyDelete
  69. Prewash?! I didn't even know you're 'supposed' to do that! And I use my Grans iron from the 60's - no steam. *wondering if I must secretly enjoy making my life more difficult*

    ReplyDelete
  70. I love it! My problem with respect to borders is I my quilt front often isn't straight, so borders give me cushion.

    ReplyDelete
  71. My current quilt doesn't have a border and I was debating whether to add one...I think I'll skip it this time!

    ReplyDelete
  72. I don't know any of the 'quilting rules' either! I've not made my first quilt yet (I have a 'few' more things on my list before I can start my first one!), but I'm sure I'll be breaking all kinds of rules left, right and center. I wasn't going to add a border either!

    ReplyDelete
  73. This book looks fabulous! Would love to win it!

    ReplyDelete
  74. I would love to win this book - quilting rules, what are those?!?! I'm sure that avid quilters would be dying if they ever watched me put together a quilt. I'm sure I break all of the rules. Hey, it's the end product that counts right :)

    ReplyDelete
  75. New books are always fun -- and I never use borders anyway

    ReplyDelete
  76. I didn't know there were specific rules to follow! Looks like a great book, sure would be fun to win!

    ReplyDelete
  124. 1.) Usually I skip borders, I rarely sew a border to my quilts, and if I use a border, it's usually just a really small one, e.g. a 2" strip.
    2.) I break the rules all the time, I don't pin, I don't prewash, I don't follow my own layout designs, I don't baste the whole quilt when I do kingsize, but just baste it in quarters, sometimes I don't even pin the bindings.
    3.) I use straight of grain binding all the time, I think it's rather complicated to make a bias binding strip.
    I excessively chain-sew and rotary-cut, even if the instructions say it isn't possible.
    Often rules are just there to be broken, imagine where we were if nobody hadn't broken rules during the last millenia... ;-)
    Thanks for this lovely book giveaway!

  126. I always thought quilts were supposed to have borders. My patterns show them. I think the book would help me. And I'm happy to learn that we can sort of break the rules. My latest binding was 3" wide and I put batting inside to make it puffy. It'sa baby quilt. Thanks for the chance to win this book.
