First off…from yesterday’s post, I have gotten several emails asking about the wool pattern that I am working on. I bought the pattern at Country Threads. They carry a kit for it. Here’s the link.

Last week’s ruler winners from “Try it on Tuesday” are…KT Young, Marsha B (square ruler), Sandi1100. The winner of the Little Quilts Through the House is Carla G.
Now to today’s post: Each week I “try” something new. Sometimes it involves a giveaway….sometimes it’s just a new recipe. I invite all of you to link up and share something new that you are trying too.
My friends at Martingale and Company gifted me another book to review. This one is “Fast and Fun First Quilts” by Sara Diepersloot. The title is perfectly appropriate. The quilts are FAST and FUN!
The quilts are all quite easy….
For a beginner, perfect.
I can see a mom sharing this book with her daughter who is learning to sew.
This quilt from the cover caught my eye.
This table runner caught my eye too.
This last quilt is my favorite…Star quilts always catch my attention. I love design and the color choice too.
The directions for cutting and piecing and easy to read. I know if I was teaching my daughter to learn to read patterns and to sew, this is a book I would be tempted to purchase. I know when my daughter first started sewing cutting directions and piecing directions could be overwhelming, these aren’t at all.
As an experienced quilter, some of these designs are a little simple but, I like fast and fun designs if I am making a charity quilt or a quilt for a gift.
All in all it’s would make a nice addition to any quilter’s library.
If you want a chance to win this quilt book, leave a comment telling how old you were when you made your first quilt. I’ll pick a winner next week.
