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!
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.
How about I give away a copy of Fat Quarter Style, right here, right now? You want one? Enter the raffle below, and I’ll draw a winner on Wednesday, 8/20/14. Good luck!
