On My Bookshelf: Fat Quarter Style

Hi Friends!  I’m writing today to launch a series of posts I have in store for this upcoming month, and they’re all about BOOKS!  That’s right- it’s book season in quilty land, and there are some really excellent ones coming out.  I’ll be dedicating several posts in August and September to a few of my favorites, so keep your eyes peels for those.  So many fabulous books to pour over, and loads of amazing quilts- there aren’t enough hours in the day to sew what I want to sew this fall!

Fat Quarter Style 01

The first book I want to showcase is Fat Quarter Style, brought to you by the one and only Fat Quarter Shop!  I adore this new book for so many reasons….12 darling and timeless quilts, including 4 size options for every single quilt (yes, please!).  Where to even begin?  I want to make all of them!

I’ve stitched up a block from the Marquee quilt- how simple is this?  Such a quick block- just 2 little seams- and what a lovely geometric pattern it makes.  It’s so crisp and modern, and looks like a really great way to show off some favorite fabrics.

But that’s not the only quilt I love.  I really have my eye on  the Primrose quilt- the flower one with the grey background in the photo below.  AH!  I can think of a zillion and one fabrics I’d use to make some big fat flowers for my Primrose.  This one is definitely on my to-do list.
