Posted on December 7th, by Amy in give away, review. 191 comments

Welcome to my stop on the 15 Minutes of Play book tour!  15 Minutes of Play by, my friend, Victoria Findlay Wolfe, is a keeper!

15 Minutes of Play—Improvisational Quilts

15 Minutes of Play is one of those you books you want to sit down and slowly ingest, and then hurry to the sewing machine to put the ideas into practice.  The nature of Victoria’s narrative draws you into the source of her inspiration, and she guides you to find own, and create beautiful quilts.

15 Minutes of Play—Improvisational Quilts

V shares her methods for “made-fabric”, offers block patterns to inspire quilts of your own design.  She has also included many inspirational quilts, many made by others, to give you a feel of how individual the process can be.  By playing for just 15 minutes each day, as V suggests, your creative juices are always flowing and ready to create.

15 Minutes of Play—Improvisational Quilts

V has also issued challenges within the book, which are a great way to jump start your creative process, and consider your quilting fears.  For each challenge she has a pep talk for you, and a few questions to guide your creativity.

I recommend 15 Minutes of Play for any quilter with scraps…yep, it’s a keeper!

To win a copy  of 15 Minutes of Play – leave me a comment, telling me your favorite color to use and why.

My favorite color is blue, or blue/green – I love how calm and mellow it is, and it plays so nice with other colors.

The giveaway will be open through December 12, 2012 – good luck!

Amy

    I like to work with jewel tones and I think it is b/c they give a quilt more of a presence in a room rather than just fading into the background.

    Dree says:

    Pinks! Bright, loud pinks. Kona pomegranate kind of pinks. Multicolored prints with pinks. And throw in some pastel scraps. I love to mix pinks in scrappy quilts, for some reason the non-matching looks great to me in pink. I haven’t managed to see that in other colors–at least not when it’s my project LOL.

  52. 52
    ellen k says:

  64. 64
    Gene Black says:

    I love blue, all shades of it really, but the blue that always makes me go Oooooh is the blue that leans toward a green -like the color of the Caribbean Sea on a magnificent day. I think love it because blue IS the color of sky and sea.

  65. 65

    ritainalaska says:

    my favorite color to work with is green … the reasons vary with the project, or more particularly, the shade,or tone or hue. it’s serene, exciting, beguililng, but whatever the green is or the feeling it elicits, green has always been my favorite, compelling color, even when i was very, very young, i liked green just because it was green.

  107. 107
    Heather says:

    Red is often in my quilts – more often as a ‘pop’ of color to give vitality to a quilt.

    mrsmoore says:

    My favorite is blue in all its glory–it’s cool, and I live in a hot climate; it’s calm–and I live in a noisy place; and it’s both sky and water. What more could I ask for in a color?

  114. 114

    I love red!! For me it is a cheerful color and adds zing to just about anything. Too bad it bleeds a lot. ;P

  115. 115

    GG says:

    I also like the blues & greens. Colors you see in the Tropics at the beach. Aqua, Sea Foam Green, mixed with a host of other blues & greens remind me of the relaxing times at the beach- quiet, beautiful, mesmerizing, enormous(ocean staring) and fun (making shapes out of clouds)

    Dawn Hollingsworth says:

    My favorite color is yellow but, I love all warm colors. :)

  121. 121
    Lisa Mathis says:

    Right now it’s bright yellow. Cheerful, happy yellow. In a few weeks it will probably be tangerine. I have new favorites all the time and definitely brights for the last year or so. I am going to go nuts with this book and all of the inspiration and challenges.

  122. 122

    So hard to pick a favorite color! I think my fav color is monochromatic :) That’s what I’d probably do with all those scraps – but maybe I need the book to show me the error of my ways :)

  123. 123
    Alice M says:

    My favorite colors are bold bright colors, pinks, blues,greens. Guess I like all colors.

    Hi Amy,

    My favorite color is purple and I love how it reminds me of Christmas’ Advent season…purple and pink.

    Thanks for being part of this blog….Amy Lo

    eileen says:

    I would have to agree with you on the blue-green, though pink is my favorite color. Some people see pink and keep moving but the teals and greens while being colorful are never offensive and yes they mellow out. This book looks like a great read and play. For me the scrappier the quilt, the better.

  126. 126
    liz hietkamp says:

    my favourite colour is blue…but i find i don’t use it in quilts very much. I’m often using reds or greens or yellows – and not MY favourite colour!

    usairdoll says:

    Sounds like an amazing book and I’d love to learn more about color and letting go. My favorite color is a bright yellow because it makes me feel warm and happy. It’s hard to sew with such a bright yellow so this time of rhe year it’s gold that I use.

    Thank you, Victoria and C&T Publishing for a super giveaway and a chance to win.

    Dorothy Matheson says:

    I really like to use purple. However my only way to work is scrappy. The more different prints or solids in a quilt the better

    I can’t wait to see this book! My favorite color to quilt with (at the moment) is naturals such as: ecru, moss, coffee, etc. I guess I am liking that they feel restful, which is nice for a quilt which is for resting! They break up and dilute the more vibrant or rich tones, as in nature, letting the eyes move in an organic way. Surprisingly, they go well with most every other palette, and I think are a more interesting “solid neutral” than plain old white or grey.

    I love red – it adds warmth. But adding a little of teal or turquoise adds punch.
    My Nana was an artist – she always said “Add blue to a composition to bring it all together.”

    Carole Lee says:

    Currently I am loving gray & citron, to me it is soothing but modern. I also love to add a soft mustard yellow to this mix. It is fresh and … it is like adding cilantro to a recipe.

    Judy K says:

    Either brights or any color that reads as a solid from afar.

    Nancysue says:

    I am hooked on latte brown/ tan, and rust. Just to see how they change depending on what color is also being used. Thank you for the review of the book. I love how it has challenges and helps you through the creative process :)

    Rebekah Dundon says:

    I just love working with bright colours! Any colours, my favourites at the moment though are probably lime green, pink, red, purple, orange..not necessarily all together!. I am just discovering the joy of solids though so I usually use a mix of all things bold.

  176. 176

    I’m hooked on aqua, red and white right now — a Supernova made with Brrr! to be precise. It’s coming together beautifully. :) Thanks for the giveaway — this book looks so fun!

    Judie Harron says:

    Carol Lagestee says:

    I love purple. Why? It’s just so pretty, all shades. You know how mashed potatoes and gravy is a comfort food? That’s how purple is to me in a quilt.

    Kim O'Mallon says:

    Looks like such a great book!

    Linda says:

    I am loving what everyone is saying about this book. It is now on my Christmas list. My favorite color to use is not a color–I like to add black in some way to almost every quilt. I think it allows the focus color(s) to pop. It defines. As Jane Eyre says, “the darkness is as important as the light”.

  188. 188
    Suz says:

    I love using red in quilts! It seems to bring alive most other colours!

  189. 189
    Cheryl says:

    I love all colors. My quilt group did a challenge where we had to use neutrals and only one color! Now that was a challenge! I had the hardest time limiting myself to only one color.

    Kathleen says:

    Victoria’s book looks wonderful, bright, fun and inspirational. I’ve done some 15 minutes of play, but would like to do more and V’s book would be just the thing!.
    My favorite color is blue-all shades of blue especially blue green. Thanks very much.
