I told you that Martingale Publishing had sent me a whole bunch of books to review. Well I’ve went through and picked which ones I like and am sharing another one with you. This one is Hearth and Home by Jo Morton.
If you like Jo Morton, here’s another for you to love. I have long since been a lover of Jo Morton’s work..this one did not disappoint.
Isn’t the cover amazing? I love the arch and and how the quilt was photographed.
Wow…I sure love the colors of this. Blue and gold has long been a favorite color combination of mine.
I have to say that this next one is my favorite from the book….You can’t tell from the picture but this is set in a barn raising. Barn raising plus scrappy plus this coloring is my favorite.
There are some I love and would make in a heartbeat. There are a few that I would pass on. This next one I like but would likely not make.
I adore this next one….reds and blues. Of course I like it!! Flying Geese borders you’ve got me!!
This one is awesome. Oh, I like it!! Triangles, gold, blues- YES. I love it.
In typical Jo Morton style, all of the quilts are small or lap sized at the largest. I think that’s why I don’t make any of her quilts. Seriously, I don’t know what it is but I so rarely make anything smaller than a full sized quilt. I know I can make them larger but it’s a bit of a pain. What can I say, I’m a little lazy.
That doesn’t prevent me from loving looking through her books and dreaming of a day when I had enough time to make quilts only for fun without a care of the cost or the purpose of the quilt in the end. There are so many people in my life I want to make quilts for that I don’t always have time for quilts just for fun..or just for me. If I ever do, Jo Morton quilts and a couple of the ones in this book will be at the top of my list to tackle.
