I’m still working through the ebooks that Martingale Publishing sent for me to review. I’m so happy that there are many that I really like. Add this one to that list… Returning to Temecula by Sheryl Johnson.
You might remember there was another book I reviewed from this author. You can find it HERE. I even bought a copy of that book I liked it so much. That made me hopeful for this book.
Well I turned the pages and dug in. I was happy to see this as the first quilt. Of course I loved it. Scrappy equals happy in my world.
I’m happy to say that not a lot of the quilts had applique. I’m just not a lover of applique. I love looking at it but doing it…not so much.
This one was fun. I actually liked that it was longer than wide. I can see that someone might want to make this for a specific spot in their house that would fit that size.
This one I liked…do you?
Everytime I look at a quilt book with small wall hanging size quilts I kick myself and ask WHY DON’T YOU MAKE THESE??? I love them. I think it’s because I’m not a decorator and would like just keep them in a pile. UGH. Someday I need to just hire a decorator.
Pink and brown is a long time color combo I like LOTS. This one I especially like. I LOVE the simplicity of it. So many people “overly machine quilt”…some are way into negative space. I think I’m a simple girl. I like simple.
I have to say this one really caught my eye. Connie pointed the quilt out to me a few weeks ago. It has crumb piecing. HELLO, yes I love it!!
Well then I looked at the directions. The pieced unit is appliqued onto the fabric. UGH….back to the dreaded applique word. Well, it wouldn’t be that much applique. Maybe I could rise to the occasion!!
