Fresh Fat Quarter Quilts Book Tour

I have some fun news- my Fresh Fat Quarter Quilts book has been shipping to stores over the past week!  And those of you that pre-ordered it through Amazon have been receiving your copies as well.  I've absolutely loved all of the messages letting me know how excited you've been to get a copy and to start sewing - thank you!

Starting today, I'll be sharing more of the projects in the book - there's 12 quilts in all!  For the next couple of weeks I'm hosting a book tour with a group of super talented quilters who are joining in.  I'm really looking forward to seeing what they create.

Each of the twelve projects in the book is Fat Quarter friendly.  My hope for this book is that it becomes a reference book of sorts for you.

So often I see quilters (my friends, people in quilt shops, and even myself!) pick up a bundle of fabric and declare their love for it, but then the very next thing they say is, "but I don't know what to make with it."  I wanted to help solve that problem!

The table of contents is arranged so that you can quickly see what you can make with that pretty bundle of fabric.

The projects range from baby size quilts to queen size and I made them as easy to piece as possible, and included short cuts and quick-piecing techniques scattered throughout.
