Five Hundred For Me, Three For You


I have a wonderful copy of the new book by 
It's So Emma pattern company, SIMPLY FAT QUARTERS,
 that I have been drooling over..
There are several fun projects in the book...

including the ones you see here on the cover!
And here are some of the quilts you will find inside the book!
One of  the things I really like about this book and the It's So Emma patterns is
that you are not just getting one pattern/one size. The instructions give you fabric
requirements and cutting instructions for several sizes. Why doesn't everyone do that?
Another great thing is that these quilts lend themselves to be made up for guys and also 
as baby quilts... lots of versatility!
I haven't got to play with the book yet but I thought you might like to see it...
and better yet...
Kimberly Jolly has given the okie dokie for me to give away 3 of these sweet books
to you guys in honor of it's debut at Fall Market. So since today starts the Market frenzy
I am having a giveaway that will go through the weekend. I will pick a winner 3 winners
on Monday! 

Did I mention that I just made the landmark of over 500 posts on my blog?

thanks for the giveaway. I would love to own the book.

Mary said...

As someone who makes a LOT of baby quilts, I could really use a book like this! I can tell you why so few put in measurements to make different sizes - math. Figuring the block sizes isn't the hard part - it's the yardage. Using fat quarters will be wonderful!

Congratulations on your 500th post!!!

Ellen in Oregon said...

Congradulations on your 500th post!! I know it takes a lot of effort & energy to make a blog successful. I look forward to each post & have become a better quilter because of the knowledge you share, so thank you.
The book looks great & I agree that all patterns should come with measurements for a range of sizes. I usually make throw size quilts and have to pass by some great patterns because they only give directions for a bed size.

trish said...

Yay for 500 posts! :0)

Thank you for sharing a book with us.
Sincerely. Trish xo

I have admired that book. I especially like the Heirloom and Carousel patterns. I think it is very helpful they tell you how to make several sizes--that saves me from having to use my rusty math skills.
