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 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!
