I’m always happy to see the UPS truck pull up to my house. When the latest box of Martingale books arrived, I was over the moon. These new titles are dynamite!
Quilts from Sweet Jane is perfect for today’s precuts. The quilts are innovative and fun—they don’t necessarily look like they were made with precuts! Author Sue Pfau has hit this one out of the park.
I love Apple of My Eye and Under the Sea.
The soft colors of Penny Lane are wonderful.
Visit Sue Pfau’s etsy shop for more great quilt patterns.
Some of my favorites in Scrap-Basket Beauties are Peaks and Valleys,
and Beach Bungalow.
Are you excited about this book yet?! Half a dozen of these quilts went immediately onto my “MUST MAKE” list. You can see more of the quilts and catch up with Kim on her blog, Magnolia Bay Quilts.
If you’re looking for some fast quilts, Victoria Eapen’s Large-Block Quilts is subtitled, “16 Quick and Easy Quilt Patterns.” Vickie has been featured in regular issues of Quiltmaker and Quiltmaker’s 100 Blocks.
How about Lantern Lights?
Or Twirly Swirly…
I’m also fond of Fascination, with its plums and yellows. You’ll find Vickie at her blog, Spun Sugar Quilts.
I’m sure you’d like to get busy sewing now, so let’s wrap this up with a giveaway.
