Simply Fat Quarters by Fat Quarter Shop

This morning it landed on my doorstep.  The book I was waiting for and knew I would love.  Simply Fat Quarters by the gang at Fat Quarter Shop. Ten quilt patterns designed to be made with FQs plus yardage.


A mix of modern and traditional fabrics but each could quilt be made with either.  Each one is calculated for four sizes: crib, lap, twin and king.  


Clear, simple assembly diagrams and none of those weird pictures where you see hands doing stuff.  I'm not so keen on the books where hands do stuff.  I'm more of a diagrams girl.  Maybe because I have ugly hands and, if I wrote a book, I'd need a hand model.

  1. Love this book. Don't worry about a hand model, "real" is in, in the quilting community!

  5. Lol - hilarious. I'm not much of a hands-in-photos book unless it actually helps you understand what you're doing (like in videos).

    Looks like a good one - I'll add it to my list of must sees.

  7. You're too funny about the hand model needed. And you are so lucky to have that book in your hands. I want that one very badly myself.

  10. Hands doing stuff is like wild animals being given cutesy names by documentary makers in the Serengeti. Ick
