What I’m Reviewing: A Piece of Cake
I got a book for review e-book from Martingale. It is A Piece of Cake: Sweet and Simple Quilts from Layer Cake Squares by Peta Peace.
I get review e-books from publishers all the time. I honestly often don’t even look at them. I have what I have and I like what I like…and I don’t want anymore quilt books. My shelves are full. When the last batch of review e-books came through I happened to see this one that used layer cake squares. I have a couple layer cakes here that need to be used so thought I would at least look at the book….I did, and I liked it.
I ended up picking a pattern that I want to make. I hate working with e-books and prefer hard copies so I wrote to the copy and asked for a hard copy. I told them my intention was to make the quilt and then pass it along to a blog reader….so what quilt inspired me ask for a hard copy? This one….
How cute is that for a baby quilt? It’s 45″ x 50″ or the alternate size 18 1/2″ x 20 1/2″. The pattern comes in two sizes. I’m thinking about making the smaller version and adding some borders but I’m not sure yet. All I know is that I need to get going on it. The baby is due today!
There are other quilts I like….
This would be quick and easy. Cute too.
This one I would be so tempted to make as a Quilt of Valor. Easy but nice for sure.
This one also caught my eye.
This one I love but would I know I couldn’t get myself to do the applique.
There are several fun projects in the book….I really want to get that baby quilt done and finished. I have things cut out already. Now I need to sew and quilt it. Do you think there’s any chance I could finish it before Sunday when we have a family picnic and family will be there? Depending on how things go, I might try to get it finished.
Keep watching. I’ll do a giveaway for the book once I get that quilt finished!
