Hello, hello! I'm back in today to share 'It's Sew Emma's' second book offering; Fat Quarter Style. Fat Quarter Shop have generously offered me a free copy for a lucky blog reader.
It does exactly what it says on the tin, it's all about fat quarter style! There are 12 fat quarter quilt patterns included, all of which have 4 size options; crib, lap, twin (single for us U.K. folk), and queen (I think that's a double to us, right?). It's a great little book with some really eye-catching designs, a lot of them seem to follow this super-size block trend which I love so I think it would make a fantastic book for beginners - and the more seasoned quilters ;-)
I have a lot of wedding planning and 'secret' deadlines at the moment, so I don't have the time to make one of these fabulous quilts right now, but I for sure have 'Tapestry' (image above) on my list! I think this is my favourite pattern from the book. Wouldn't it look so great made up in some Bonnie & Camille fabrics!? April Showers collection, maybe? Oh, maybe even just one block and turn it into a mini quilt for my sewing room! ahh! Must.Resist.
'Raindrops' is another great pattern which caught my eye, quite different to my usual style but I'd love to make this up in a fun 1930s solid colour palette. Cool huh? 'Primrose' is a cute design too, it reminds me something Lori Holt would make :-)
Talking of which, if you have either of Lori's books you will notice the same layout and instructions for making each pattern as they're brought to you by the same publishing house - It's Sew Emma / Fat Quarter Shop. So you can expect very, very clear instructions, diagrams and cutting information just like Lori's - which I completely love so this makes me very happy!
Fat quarters are my favourite pre-cut size so it's great to have this book on hand and know I will definitely have the yardage required for a project. Wouldn't you love to have this on your bookshelf too? Yes? OK. Here's what you have to do.
