Learn to make a Scrap House Quilt

Rainbow Disks are a publishing company producing craft e-books on CD which means that video instructions and demonstrations can be included as well - great for those of you who like to learn by seeing how it's done.  They are shortly going to launch a new website, vivebooks.com which will make their books available for instant download.  And they have offered one of you the chance to win a copy of "Scrap House Quilt".  


The book takes you through the free piecing techniques for making the house blocks in the quilt.  The techniques can be adapted to make lots of different houses and to make any size of quilt.  For anyone out there who hasn't yet dipped their toes into free piecing, this would make a great starting point.  And of course who doesn't love a scrappy quilt project?


To be in with a chance of winning this e-book, just leave a comment on this post and a winner will be drawn a week from now.
