MY REVIEW

This book is a “must have” for anyone looking for stashbuster projects that are fun and fast to make.  Kim provides excellent insights to help you “raid your stash” to create a beautiful quilt, but the designs would also be stunning if you wanted to plan out your fabrics and purchase yardage.  All of the projects come with easy to follow instructions making this an excellen book for beginners, as well as expert quilters.

The 16 projects in this book range in size from 45 1/2″ x 60 1/2″ to 72 1/2″ x 72 1/2″.  Again, they are all perfect stashbuster projects for you to make quilts for your home, for gifts, as well as for charity.

I’m confident this book is going to be a “best seller”.  I hope you get a chance to check it out at your local quilt shop, but as it is so new if you don’t see it let them know you’d like them to make it available in their store.  Of course, you can also find it at Martingale’s online store (don’t forget, when you buy a physical book from their store, they also give you a free e:book copy of it too!), as well as Amazon.
