Lori Holt's latest book offering is the fabulous Great Granny Squared book, published by Sew Emma as part of the Fat Quarter shop. I was lucky enough to receive two copies, one for me and one for a lucky reader! I received it at the weekend so I've had some time to page through the quilty eye candy. Would you like to see more? …
I think it's safe to say, I love granny square quilts! So I knew Great Granny Squared would be just my cup of tea. The first big sized quilt I made was a granny square design, so I will definitely be making one of Lori's cute projects from the book. I loved the navy (my fav quilty colour of the moment) 'Bonus Quilt' so much I just had to test out a block to share with you all ;-)
I loved reading about the 'great granny' name too. The baby, the mama, the granny and the great granny! So cute. I just love that. It's smaller than Lori's first book Quilty Fun, but packed with some great projects. It includes complete instructions for two quilts, a table runner, a pillow and two embroidery designs for use as quilt labels. So comparing the price tag of $13.95 for a multitude of projects versus a regular one-off quilt pattern at the same price it's really great value! And as always, Lori provides really clear instructions and diagrams to follow along. As well as the all important happy vintage photo's of Lori's colourful home dotted throughout the book! Coincidently, Lori's latest line of fabrics is called Vintage Happy! see what I did there ;-) Congratulations to Lori on another fantastic book!
