This is the last stop of the Scrappy Bits Applique blog tour! It’s been a blast, and thank you to all of you who followed along and entered the giveaways! Thank you also for all your kind words about my book, I’m so excited to hear that so many of you like it and are eager to learn the technique!

Fallen Leaves Quilted Throw Pillows - Scrappy Bits Applique by Shannon Brinkley

I am really passionate about the techniques I teach in my book. These are the main reasons why:

  1. The technique is easy to grasp. Very beginner friendly!
  2. The applique pieces can be made quite quickly!
  3. You don’t have to worry about precision!
  4. Use up them scraps!
  5. Reuse an old applique pattern in a new way.
  6. The creative possibilities are endless!!!

Here is my book trailer where I chat more about these things…

Today, I want to share with you some more “scrappy bits” quilts I’ve made! Some can be found in the gallery section of my book, others are quilts I’ve made since.
