What’s New from Martingale

The other day I got to thinking that it had been a long time since I was sent any books to review from Martingale.  In the past I would get a two to four books each month for review.  Sometimes I would find one I liked and other times I didn’t.  I started to wonder if they took me off the list as I didn’t review the books often enough.  That made me a little sad as I’ve loved seeing the new books even if I haven’t made anything from the books…a little page turning (or finger flipping on my Kindle) at night before bed was always great.

Then a week or so ago I got an email from Martingale they apologized for being behind and then sent NINE books for possible review.  NINE WOW.

The May books for release were….
Stitches from the Yuletide by Kathy Schmitz
Pure and Simple by Maggie Bonanomi
Simple Whatnots by Kim Diehl

Stitches from the Yuletide didn’t interest me much.  I wasn’t even going to look at it.  I don’t Christmas decorating so stitching Christmas things isn’t me.

I ended up paging through the ebook and saw this though….It’s fill in chain stitch embroidery.  Awesome.

The next book was Pure and Simple: 17 Primitive Projects Inspired by the Seasons.

This is filled with wool projects.  Lots are cute including this pincushion which is my favorite of this book.

I liked this pillow too.

There were other great projects in the book too.

Simple Whatnots was the last book of the May selections.  It’s Kim Diehl.  I expected to like this…and did.

I am guessing that you all will be seeing lots of this book at your local quilt shops.

I know if I was a shop owner I would be kitting up lots of these little quilts.

I LOVE the book and I am itching to make a few.

I wish my plate wasn’t so full right now.  This one is my favorite….

I loved this one too.

The only problem I can see with Simple Whatnots is choosing which project to make first!!

All of these books are available through Martingale….or the Amazon links I provided in the post.  I’ll check out the other SIX ebooks Martingale sent and get back to you about those in some upcoming posts.
