This week’s give-away is from Nadine Ruggles of DreamWeaver’s Quilts Studio. Included in the give-away is a copy of her book, Inchie Quilts and the InchieSee & InchieDo Viewer Tool and Ruler Set.
Nadine Ruggles has been sewing and crafting since childhood, and was caught by the quilting bug in 1990. She wanted to make "just one (large) quilt" for the bed, and, of course, couldn’t stop quilting after that. Being mostly self-taught, Nadine sees each new quilt as a challenge, and she applies her special talents for fabric selection, precision piecing, elegant quilting and unexpected embellishments to traditional blocks to create innovative quilt art pieces.
Nadine lives in Angelbachtal, Germany, where she teaches classes and workshops in a variety of quilting and embellishment techniques. She has been the recipient of numerous awards for her machine quilting and innovative piecing. Her quilts have been exhibited across the United States in quilt shows, galleries and museums, and her newest work and techniques are featured in Inchie Quilts, published by the American Quilter’s Society.
Quilted and embellished with beads, crystals, fibers, and found objects, each is a miniature work of art. Inchies can be incorporated into traditional, contemporary, and art quilts as an integral part of the quilt design. They add dimension and interest to quilts both large and small. You can even rearrange the Inchies because they are attached with Velcro® tape!
This is a mixed technique and pattern book that provides complete instructions for those who like to follow a pattern as well as many ideas that will inspire fabric artists to innovate and adapt the Inchie techniques and concepts to their own quilts in new ways.
InchieSee & InchieDo Viewer Tool and Ruler Set
Design and make Inchies quickly and easily with the InchieSee & InchieDo Viewer Tool and Ruler Set. The InchieSee & InchieDo Viewer Tool and Ruler Set is just what you need to make planning and cutting Inchies easy!
Use the double-sided InchieSee Viewer Tool with the Inchie-sized window to preview light or dark fabrics for Inchies or to fussy cut motifs. The InchieDo Ruler has very thin lines, open intersections and fussy cut centering marks to make it easy to keep your Inchies on the "straight and square". Great for Inchies, Twinchies, ATC’s and other small scale patchwork and embellishments. Easy to use, and complete instructions and tips included!
