Fat Quarter Style Book Giveaway!

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.

How To Enter

  8. All pre-cuts are great but I like the FQs!

  9. I tend to pick up fat quarters because that's usually what I can afford but then I sometimes regret having too little of a print to line bags or make a doll or pillowcase. Of course, that inspires creativity doesn't it?!

    ReplyDelete
  10. Head says FQs or layer cakes because they tend to be better value but heart says mini charms because they are just so cute.

  33. My favorite precuts are the precut fat quarters! They are so versatile and fit so perfectly with my other fabric stash. I usually will buy 1-2 of a pattern I am super fond of, then I will add to it with fabs from my stash. Eventually, I will have enough for a quilt or tabletopper.

  68. I would love to be able to buy more FQ stacks but often have to be content with a FE stack.

    ReplyDelete
  69. It's not a surprise that this post is getting so many comments as it looks like a fab book. I've only used layer cakes and fat quarters. The layer cakes were fun as they were so quick and easy to use for the table covers I made. I also like them because you get the full range, so sorting out coordinating colours is a non-issue

    ReplyDelete
  70. What a lovely book! I always loved quilts with lots of white and happy colours! I tend to buy FQ - that is just the right amount of fabric - not to little and not so much you end up getting tired of the print! I love layercakes too - sometimes I cut them into charms, that way I think theres a little more seam allowance than if I buy charmpacks. I always sew the english way - paperpiecing - I have a sewing machine but I am not totally comfortable with it yet!
    All the best from
    Christine in Denmark - I LOVE your blog, by the way!

    ReplyDelete
  71. Love love all pre cuts as so much to do with them but layer cakes come at the top. Thanks for the giveaway x

    ReplyDelete
  72. Layer cakes are my favourite - they are so versatile!

    ReplyDelete
  73. I love charm packs. They are affordable and you can use them for lots of things. Although I do own a LOT of fat quarters. They are good too but I don't really class them as a pre cut in my mind. Jelly rolls are very pretty to look at as well. Its so hard to choose!!

    ReplyDelete
  74. I quite like layer cakes, as you can always cut them down to charm size if needed, but otherwise you've still got a good sized piece of fabrics from an entire line. Mostly though I buy individual fat quartets/half yards. 😀

    ReplyDelete
  75. I like fat quarters - there's enough to use for a decent sized project but not so much fabric that you get sick of it.

    ReplyDelete
  76. I love both charm packs and fat quarters; also finding that I love jelly rolls too LOL

    ReplyDelete
  77. I love the jelly rolls but honestly any pre cut as I don't have that much space.

    ReplyDelete
  78. I have several Charm packs so that's it:)

    ReplyDelete
  79. I like layer cakes. Yummy!

    ReplyDelete
  80. I love fat quarters but I have some of all the pre-cuts. I too have my eye on making the Tapestry quilt, so pretty. Great giveaway!

    ReplyDelete
  81. I love all precuts, but usually buy fat quarters because I can do so much with them. Thanks for the chance to win the book!

    ReplyDelete
  82. I love Layer cakes, you can make a decent sized quilt out of them, but it is a not too expensive way to buy a complete collection. Xx

    ReplyDelete
  83. I love FQs and buy them the most :)

    ReplyDelete
  84. Fat quarters are my number one favourite, especially when I purchase them in bundles, closely followed by charm packs.

    ReplyDelete
  85. fat quarters have generally been my go to size. some things a fat 8th could work nicely especially if you are collecting from a designer

    ReplyDelete
  86. This book looks so cheerful!! I love them all....layer cakes seem to come in so handy along with half yards....but then jelly rolls rolled in first with charms.....so!!....you chooose!!!.....thanks!!

  91. I love the versatility of fat quarter bundles, I love being able to have a variety of prints but still be able to have some wriggle room in quilt pattern selection.

    ReplyDelete
  92. FQ's are perfect for must projects! But I must admit than when I fall in love with a print I go for half yards. Thanks♥

    ReplyDelete
  93. I just love layer cakes, they seem better value for money and you can cut them to suit your project . Thanks Helen

    ReplyDelete
  94. I like FQ's the best - they're versatile for things other than quilts too. I follow you on bloglovin.

    ReplyDelete
  96. I would love to win a copy of your book because it would be a great 'go to' book for my precuts. My favorites are fat quarters because they are so versatile, and second I love charm packs as they are just perfect for table runners and baby quilts.

  102. I'm already a Follower thru Bloglovin too :)

    ReplyDelete
  103. That looks like a lovely book! I very much prefer FQs as I struggle to use other precuts...

    ReplyDelete
  104. I prefer fat quarters as I make all sorts of things and the smaller precuts are a bit limited in use. Though I love a pile of precut squares for simple patch work. Fat quarters are a great way to get a taster of a fabric line too.

    ReplyDelete
  105. I was always a charm pack girl, but lately my go to pre-cut is the layer cake. It is more versatile and shows off the larger prints. Usually you will have some leftovers to kick start a new project. You can cut 4 x 5 inch charm squares from each layer so it is actually more economical if you are prepared to do the work!

    ReplyDelete

  112. I'm not sure. I've just started quilting and learning what everything is all about. So far I'm just into building my stash with yard cuts. I need to get fat quarters for my next project: a king sized Grandma's Garden done by hand using English Paper Piecing! I may just be insane!!!
