New Home Celebration, Love #CreativeGoodness Celebration -#Giveaway Week – Day 4

Welcome to Day 4 of my Giveaway Week, where I’m celebrating my new home on a wordpress hosted blog (vs previously I was on a self hosted wordpress blog), as well as  my love of #CreativeGoodness.  This giveaway is also my way to thank my blog followers.

Today, I’m sharings insights about a new book from Martingal called “Easy Quilts from Precut Fabrics“, by Sue Pfau of Sweet Jane’s Quilting & Design.

This book is truly packed with #CreativeGoodness that can help you create sweet quilts using pre-cuts (but some may want to use fabrics from their stash, or purchase yardage).

PUBLISHER’S INSIGHTS:

Create delightfully scrappy quilts featuring classic quilt blocks–and get to the finish line fast using time-saving precut fabrics. No need for stockpiles of scraps; precut bundles include small cuts of many different fabrics, so getting a scrappy look is a snap. Simply pick your favorite precut!

* Layer Cakes: Tasty 10″ squares made for slicing up quickly
* Jelly Rolls: scrumptious 2 1/2″ x 44″ strips to cut and sew
* Fat quarters: yummy 18″ x 22″ chunks of fabric fun–a quiltmaking favorite

Just one or two precut bundles plus a background fabric are all you need to make these beauties. And you know if it’s from Sue, it’s economical too! She’ll help you make the most of any precut bundle you buy.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR:

B1194_Finals.indd

Sue Pfau first started quilting as a flight attendant, bringing hand applique on flights. In 2006 she began making and selling quilts but had a hard time finding patterns that were quick and easy yet also beautiful and interesting. So she began designing her own. This led to her design company, called Sweet Jane’s Quilting and Design after her daughter, Jane, who was adopted from China. (Her son, Jack, was adopted from Taiwan.)

MY REVIEW:

This book has 10 beautiful quilt projects that you can make using precut fabrics (or fabric from your stash), using easy to follow instructions with great visuals.  It would be an excellent book for a beginner quilter, as well as experienced quilters who simply want to make fun and fast projects for your home, as well as for gifts. Projects range in size from 48 1/4″ x 53 1/2″ to  65 1/2″ x 81 1/2″.  Considering the price of a standalone pattern, this book is an exceptional value.

I hope you get a chance to check out this book at your favorite quilt shop.  As it is such a new book, if you don’t see it do let them know you are interested in having them carry this book.  It is so new, they may not be aware of it.  Of course you cann also find it online at Martingale, as well as Amazon.

  1. I’ve got several bundles of precut fabrics in my stash, along with plenty of scraps big enough to add to make any of these beauties in this book! It looks very inspiring!
