The Big Book of Fat-Quarter Quilts - 66 Designs

Published by Martingale/ That patchwork Place 2016

Once again, I have chosen to review another FQ book; but I know we all still have them in our stashes. It’s gift giving season and this should be considered. (I know you buy yourself Christmas gifts), so go ahead and wrap it in the nice pretty paper. You don’t have to act surprised.  It would also make a wonderful gift for your friend, and it will keep her busy all next year!

This book has 66 designs, and you know I love a good value in books. Each pattern is designed by different and many well-known quilters. It is a great collection. There is a nice mix of traditional and modern; most are pieced patterns with just enough easy applique to keep it interesting.

Some of these designs look familiar to me, so they may have been published in other books or magazines. I was not able to confirm that.

There is one correction on the publishers’ website. I was able to print the new page and tuck it right into my book. Don’t forget to check for corrections on any pattern before you start. Start by going to the publishers web site, they all call it something different, but it’s usually linked at the bottom of the home page for books/patterns.

I hope you buy yourself something nice for Christmas. You are worth it!
