It's Fat Quarterly's Book! Shape Workshop for Quilters

Today's the day that is my stop on the book tour for this fun new book from the people over at Fat Quarterly! IMG_8568

When I get a new book to check out, I always try to think about what sets it apart from other books... For me, that's clear with this one.  More than a group of quilt patterns, this book teaches you a variety of different quilt blocks made with all different shapes.


From there, it's up to you to decide how you turn those blocks into a quilt top.  I love this idea of combining teaching with the reader's personal creativity.  It's so much fun to learn something and then put your own spin on it.  It leads to such a variety of interesting quilts, rather than a lot of exact duplicates!

But need a bit more guidance? There's also lots of cute finished projects included. The book is really just full of lots of ideas, inspiration and guidance.


And I'll admit it, I was pretty thrilled to see myself quoted on the back of the book!


Who would like to win a copy? Lark Books was generous enough to donate a copy to a reader so leave a comment here and I'll pick a random winner early next week.
