Scrap Quilt Challenge October Designer Showcase & free pattern

It is October!
Who would have thought when we started the Scrap Quilt Challenge in July that October would come so quickly?!

I am excited to share this month's designer with you.  Amber Johnson of Gigi's Thimble Quilt Patterns is a Martingale author and pattern designer.  Her latest book, Vintage Vibe was a huge hit at the shop this summer.  Amber was kind enough to lend us 12 of the quilts from the book for a summer-long trunk show. 
Vintage Vibe - Amber Johnson
It was so awesome to see her craftsmanship up close & really see the joy she has for the craft of quilting.  I have already made 4 projects from this book.  I would make them all. 

Amber blogs at A Little Bit Biased & you can see her latest projects and happenings there.  Be sure to add it to your daily bloggy rounds!

Today, Amber's posted her Scrap Quilt Challenge free block tutorial on her blog!  She's even linked up a second tute there too.  I have to say that I like the no pressing, no cutting portion of her plan (now you are intrigued, click over & check it out!)

You have just 2 weeks left to get your Scrap Quilt Challenge entry uploaded to our Flickr group!  See all the details on the challenge & the awesome prizes on the Fabrics N Quilts website (click here)
