Cultural Fusion Quilts - Giveaway

Welcome to Day 4 of the blog tour for the best new book to hit our crafty book shelves.

Presenting...

Cultural Fusion Quilts, 
A Melting Pot of Piecing Traditions  
15 Free-Form Block Projects
by Sujata Shah 


Sujata is one of my very favourite quilters so when a bird told me she was writing a book to say I was excited was an understatement. The book certainly lives up to my expectations and more!

Let's start with a quick summary of the plot – Sujata has been making quilts for a long time starting with traditional quilts but along the way she has drawn on influences from her colourful childhood in India, a degree in Graphic Arts, American Gees Bend style quilts, and African textiles and weaving. She has gathered these ideas and developed her own free, joyful style. Now, in Cultural Fusion Quilts, she is sharing her free form, curvy, colourful techniques with us.


When I was writing notes about this book I found I soon had a long list of reasons why I think Cultural Fusion Quilts is a 'must have book'. You'd be here reading all day so I decided to narrow it down to 6 reasons beginning with the letters of Sujata's name.

1. Special memories. Sujata begins each project by introducing the inspiration for the quilt. These include memories of times in India, her family, special moments in a day and so on. I'm usually the kind of person that flicks through books to look at the pictures, but Sujata's observations had me captivated and I found myself flipping the pages to read her next description. It gives the book a personal touch, as though we're being told stories over a cup of tea.

2. Understand, that is, Easy to Understand. Sujata's experience as a quilt teacher shines through in the book.The projects and patterns are simply laid out, with clear step by step instructions and accompanied by coloured diagrams.

3. Jump to it !! That's what these free form quilts and projects make you want to do.Truly, As soon as I'd looked through the book I went to my sewing room and started cutting fabric for one of the quilts. As I've been sewing the Rocky Road to Kansas blocks I'm already thinking about the Endless Mountains quilts or the beautiful Winter quilt. It could be tempting to make one of each quilt, but it wouldn't stop there because for each project there are further Possibilities included, which brings me to the next point.

4. Abundance of ideas, There are 15 wonderful inspiring projects that each include a pattern for a quilt. In addition to each project there are pictures of other ways of using the blocks, inspiration photos, and sometimes more than one quilt using the same block. With all the different possibilities and inspiration photos there seems to be a lot more than the 15 projects provided.

5.Time efficient – The projects include instructions for stacking fabrics for quick cutting. Easy breezy!! This isn't something I have done much in the past. Not only was my cutting time minimised but I spent less time dithering over which fabrics to use in individual blocks, as long as I had a good contrast with fabrics the combinations worked perfectly.

6. Accessable - The book has something for everyone, for beginners and experienced quilters alike. For beginners, the clear instructions will have you sewing up blocks in no time. For more experienced quilters the book has great tips and tricks.  For everybody there's inspiration galore with awesome fabric and colour play. I love that because the blocks are free form, those wonderful irregular shapes are desired and not frowned upon by quilt police.

Abundance of ideas is my main reason to have this book. (International)

Chris said...

I'd be interested to read her special memories of each quilt. Thanks for the chance!

Sharon said...

Oh, I like the idea of easy, quick cutting - I want to get to the "making" part fast! And the abundance of ideas is really the best part. I love when a book gives you more than just the pattern. Thanks for the chance to win, Rachael!

Susan C. said...

I am loving the freedom of the blocks, there is no perfectionism there but there is soul and colour. The more I explore quilting the more I am drawn to the quilts with wonky style. This could just be the guide I am seeking. Cheers from Melbourne Victoria!

usagypsy said...

I have a confession...I do not like to cut fabric and I'm really not that good at it! So if there is a quick easy way I'm going to try it. I'm a U.S. reader!

Poppy Seed Arts said...

Sujata's quilts are absolutely lovely. Her use of warm and bright colors is stunning. Thank you for the opportunity to enter the book giveaway. freshman(dot)quilter(at)gmail(dot)com

✾Jamie Lee Cooley✾ said...

Fun! I love a book with fresh ideas and shortcuts to making projects go faster. One of my goals for next year is to make more quilts with solids in them, so maybe this book would be good inspiration for that:)

Chris said...

Great review, Daisy! I am like you, I love this book and think it is a must-have. My favorite? Tough one - but I think that there are so many - endless - possibilities with her techniques and patterns is a big draw for me. And her root connection stories, they draw me in.

Karen H said...

I love the fact that the book is accessible but more than that I find Sujata's use of colour so inspirational. Her quilt is so well named because both cultural influences can be seen in her quilts and they are fused together in the most delightful way. I am a Canadian follower of your blog (which I enjoy very much)! Thanks for the chance to win!

Helen said...

"Abundance of ideas" is what I am always craving. I like to make my own unique version of other quilters' creations. Want this book very much...

"Time efficient" catches my interest! I have so many ideas and inspirations for quilt projects, would love to get more of them to the finish line :) And of course the use of COLOR in the book -- hoping for a chance to browse through it soon!

patty a. said...

I would be interested in the techniques she uses as I already improv piece the majority of my quilts now.

Donna~~ said...

All the possibilities to play with color appeal to me. Looks like a fun book!

DianeY said...

Well, I think the time efficient part of cutting sounds good! I sometimes agonize and get plain bored over the whole process of cutting. That and the bright colors she uses are appealing to me!

Julierose said...

I think that the ease of making the quilts that you describe would draw me to her book. I cannot do complicated patterns--nor do I want to. I like to let the fabric do the work if possible...hugs and thanks for the chance--hopefully Santa will choose moi, hugs, Julierose

CecileD said...

I love the idea of slightly quirky piecing. I tend to get hung up on accuracy and making things match, and this more relaxed approach sounds like a lot of fun.

marjay said...

I have loved Sujata's quilts for a long time and will appreciate learning more about her fabulous Colour choices. Thank you for giving us international readers a chance to win this book.

What sounds really great about this book: free-form piecing! It would be so refreshing to put away the ruler when I cut fabric for quilts.

Nann said...

I've enjoyed the blog tour immensely. And I hope to enjoy the book soon.

Karen Thurn said...

I just started hopping on this blog tour but am impressed with what you talked about. Any new spin on old things interests me.I like that the patterns look simple enough for a beginner to do but when finished really looks impressive. I'd love to win a copy. I'm a US resident. kthurn@bektel.com

Debbie said...

This book looks super interesting. Lots of great ideas here. I'm in the US.

Susan Mckee-Nugent said...

I loved the last quilt pictured, like moving water. I have a mental 'problem' with free form. Just cannot seem to do it but like the idea of stories to go with each quilt. That always makes things more interesting.
Thanks for showing the book.

Jenny M said...

I like the way Sujata writes about where she gains her inspiration from and her colour choices are so interesting. Jenny in Australia

Jeneta said...

Oh my - this book looks fabulous! I particularly loved reasons 1, 3 and 5 (or S, J and T - you clever thing!). I love being enlivened to act straight away, having a project with a story and being able to create it in the most efficient way.

I tend to buy myself a quilt book every Christmas (well, okay, perhaps not just at Christmas time), so I think I'll get this one. I LOVE those first two quilt photos!!

Oh, and I live in Australia :)

Michele said...

I think I need to be more liberated in my piecing. Hard to let go and not worry about corners matching...

Mokki said...

These designs are fantastic. Id love some guidance on freeform, with easy steps I can follow. Im from Britain.

Victoria said...

I like having fresh points of view and since I am an American, I do not see a lot of Indian techniques.

Susan said...

I like the fact that there are beginner quilt patterns.

Katie said...

I love the scrappy feel that many of the pictures have -- US

bowerbird said...

To free the quilting spirit of being precise! Unraveling years of perfecting the 1/4" seam and figuring out how much space my thread would take up in my seam not to mention how to cut exacting pieces so my block would measure correctly. I remember my first Rail Fence quilt. I like the whimsy of Sujata's so much more! Sonia

Karen said...

this book has some inspiring color combos!
