I received a lovely book from one of our sponsors today!
The Fat Quarter Shop sent this:
Oh, so yummy! Quilter's Patch is from Edyta Sitar (I love her designs!) and it's just beautiful!
Inside the book are patterns for each of the blocks used to make the quilt . . . there is a cat block (they know me so well!), coneflowers, delphiniums and more.
What I really like about the book is that each block is going to do one of two things -- either refresh your memory of a technique, or teach you a new one!
For example, for these coneflowers, you'll be making angled units from strip sets. And for the sunflowers beside them, you'll make dresden units.
See those cute pink hollyhocks in the picture below? You'll brush up on your curved piecing skills on those . . . and the instructions for the clamshell roof on the house are so clear and easy to follow!
There's even some paper piecing (shudder) but as much as I dread paper piecing, I think that even I can follow her great instructions!
This truly will be an heirloom once created. It is just beautiful! The finished size is 75" by 78.5".
I hope you will hop over to the Fat Quarter Shop and check out this book. I think you'll love it, because all of the applique templates and embroidery patterns are inside!
This is an awesome block of the month pattern for using up scraps from your stash. But if you want to create Edyta's stunning version, you can get the package of 87 laser-cut shapes at this link, or you can get 13 sturdy templates already cut and ready to rock and roll at this link!
Just tell 'em that Snoodles sent you! (Grin)
See ya next time!
