Quiltmaker is pleased to partner with It’s Sew Emma publications today. We’re reviewing the brand new Great Granny Squared book by Lori Holt of Bee in My Bonnet. And then we have several copies for giveaway!
If you have yet to discover the joy of Bee in My Bonnet, you’ll want to visit Lori’s little corner of the world. There is always something fun and creative going on there.
The first thing I knew of Lori was about seven years ago. I spotted her Apron Club pattern at International Quilt Market and thought it was just about the cutest thing I’d ever seen. An internet search led me to Lori’s blog and before I knew it, I was knee-deep in the Bee in My Bonnet Row Along.
Eventually the patterns for the row quilt were published in Lori’s first book, Quilty Fun. This is one of my all-time favorite quilt books. I want to make almost all of these quilts and I believe I actually will.
Now Lori’s second book is out, and it features her signature happy color combos and accurate, detailed instructions. Great Granny Squared takes one idea and uses it in different sizes and settings for two quilts, a table runner, a pillow and two pieced, embroidered quilt labels. At $13.95, you get a lot of bang for your buck.
I’d get this book just for the photography. The colors are fresh and the pages are full of light. You have to love Lori’s style, and the folks at It’s Sew Emma know how to capture it perfectly.
Aren’t these great quilt labels? Both are patterned in Great Granny Squared.
I highly recommend either of Lori’s books—they’ll be fresh, fun additions to your quilt shelf.
