Try it on Tuesday: Dessert Roll Quilts

It’s that day…”Try in on Tuesday”.  Today I am reviewing the book “Dessert Roll Quilts:  12 Simple Dessert Roll Quilt Patterns by Pam & Nicky Lintott.  The good people over at David and Charles Publishing sent it to me.

Are you wondering what a dessert roll is?  It is a pack of 20-5″ strips cut the width of the fabric.  All the quilts in the book are made with dessert rolls.

There are 12 quilts in the book and of course I spent a good portion of my looking time checking out this chicken quilt.

DessertRollQuilts-6

There are many other quilts in the book that would be awesome for donation quilts as they aren’t hard and can be completed quickly.  Isn’t this split nine patch fun all blown up and big??

DessertRollQuilts-1

Here’s another that if a great quilt for gifting…

DessertRollQuilts-2

This one reminds me of an old fashion quilt.  I love the soft colors.

DessertRollQuilts-3

The above and below quilt are made from the same block…just different settings.  Neat huh??

DessertRollQuilts-4

The black back ground and large scale prints are fun here.

DessertRollQuilts-5

That’s six of the 12 quilts.  Fun quilts right??  I think they are perfect for most anyone.  A new quilter will find the patterns do able and seasoned quilts with find the patterns fast.  The layout is wonderful and pictures pleasing.  Most of the quilts have an alternate color option and that is fun and versatile.    You can find Dessert Roll Quilts: 12 Simple Dessert Roll Quilt Patterns here on Amazon in both Kindle and book form.

If you’d like a chance to win a copy leave a comment here of something you are grateful for.  We’ll pick a winner as soon as we get to it.

Today I am grateful that I have plenty and can give to others.  As I was working on the charity quilt today I couldn’t help but realize how fortunate I am to have a stash of batting, binding and backings that allow me freely give to others who are in need.

    I am grateful for the family times we can have. All of my kids(6) were home last night. It was nice to share a meal together and laugh and just enjoy being together. They are growing up and not all home anymore. So I really enjoyed that time last night. Thanks so much for all of your sharing and encouragement. Love your quilts. K-

    I am grateful for the generosity of others, especially quilters, to share their love and knowledge and encouragement with newer quilters. It strikes me that quilting, in and of itself, is a very giving community. Thank you!

    i’m grateful that after being estranged from my son for over 3.5 years, he is back in my life and we are still doing great after 8 months of reconciliation. And, we are anxiously awaiting results to see if a precious baby girl is my one and only granddaughter to complete the trio of grandboys. Thank you for … sharing of your talent so generously. Congrats on deservedly being included in a great publication. I could go on and on about my gratefulness.

    I give thanks to God daily for the gifts of creativity in sewing and for my eyesight which continues to support my quilting passion. My husband encourages this fire and he is my sweetest encourager. God bless you all for the enlightenment you bring in your blogs and magazines. I’ve never met a quilter I didn’t like.

    I am grateful for my family and the time I can spend with them. Now that my husband has retired from the Army, and we have moved to our “forever home”, now we see each other every day and I feel blessed! Our daughters are off to university, so it’s also a blessing when we get a chance to see them…all grown up and getting along.

    So many things to be grateful for, but for here I’ll limit it to something related to quilting. I am so grateful that my mom taught me the intricacies of sewing and all types of needlework, which in turn has led to my love of quilting and all its relatives. Thank you mom. I miss you!

    I am grateful for the members of my small quilt guild, who have accepted the task of making children’s quilts for a charity near and dear to my heart. I hijacked our guild workshop last month to demo several easy patterns, and a quilt as you go method. So far I’ve received 9 quilts with more to come from that workshop. They asked if we could do the same thing this month!

    I am so blessed to be able to quilt and share what I make for someone who needs a joyful moment and something to cuddle up to. It’s my way of giving a huggie to someone young, old teenager. A gift of a blessing .

    I am grateful for my family -even the occasional grumpy ones. For living in a free country – having a fabric pile to play in – books to read -& so much more most of all for God’s leant blessings
    That looks like a wonderful book – some times it is nice to have some easy patterns to make – then you can just enjoy the stitching without too much instruction reading
    Thanks for the chance.
