A Flair For Fabric

A little book review for you... with a bonus.


Have you seen this book at your local quilt shop yet?


It's called a Flair for Fabric by Martingale Publishers.

This book is jammed with adorable projects from a 
variety of designers. The talented women from Henry Glass Fabrics
got together and put together a wonderful book filled with 
quilts that you will be drooling over!

(photographs are from Brent Kane)

It was compiled by Linda Lum DeBono and
here is a list of some of the fabric designers that 
have quilt projects in this book:

Leanne Anderson
 Dana Brooks
 Linda Lum DeBono
 Kim Diehl
 Anni Downs
 Jill Finley
 Margot Languedoc
 Janet Nesbitt and Pam Soliday of Buggy Barn
  Heather Mulder Peterson and Jacquelynne Steves


and that's not all!
There are several more I could mention.


On top of all is that the designers are donating all of their 
royalties from the sale of this book to the Red Cross.
How nice is that!



So do you want to see a few more must-do projects from the book?

How about this one?

Or this sweet little pillow?

Or this one?

Hands down... this one

 What really impressed me with this book is the plethora
 of tips that the designers shared on
how they use fabrics from their stash to create a new look.
The information they provide is very useful and it really 
feels like you get to know them a little bit better also.
It's worth buying the book just for that...
but you will love the 15 quilts and projects that are in it also! Wink!


(as an added bonus...
 I am giving you a link to where I found the Flair for Fabric book on sale)

Looks like a great book! I especially love that cute little first pillow that you've shown!

That little pillow would make a great AYOS project! It looks like a fun book.

I haven't seen this book. Of course, we do not have a 'local' quilt shop anymore. Thanks for the review and link to find my very own copy!
