Oh my goodness! I'm so sorry for my long silence, but we were away on a little (16 day) holiday. For past vacations I always pre-wrote stuff, but I just didn't have the time. Please forgive me.
Now I love my sister and all, but why-oh-why does she have to live in Iowa? Don't get me wrong, I have nothing against Iowa. It's it's a lovely place. And because I live in an extremely dry climate, my skin was loving the humidity. (My hands have since returned to their usual alligator-like appearance.) But it's just not ... you know, Paris or Australia or ... Chicago!!!
I have so much to say ...
Actually. Hold that thought.
If you either have a ton of FQs in your stash that are just begging to be used OR need an excuse to buy that new FQ bundle, this is definitely a must-have book for your quilting library. It's chalk-a-block (or is it supposed to be chalker-block, or chock-something ... isn't it annoying when you try to spell something for the first time - something that you've heard and said your whole life - and you no idea if you've got it right?) FULL of quick, easy and fun quilts.
I'm at the tail end of this book tour so in case you missed the other reviews and samples, check them out! :)
Now in the interest of full disclosure, although I have no shortage of FQs in my stash, all my "good fabric" is still in boxes. My scraps, however, are conveniently sorted by colour in plastic bins. Naturally I made a bee-line to the pinks. I also just finished a quilt top using a linen taupe and had a nice large scrap still on my sewing table. I thought it would be fun to do a reverse-value sample from the one shown in the book so I made my "plume" darker than my prints rather than lighter.
So. I have a copy of Fat Quarter Style here that needs a good home. If you'd like a chance to be that home, please leave me a comment confessing if you have FQs you need to use up or just want an excuse to buy more for your stash. :)
This giveaway closes on Monday, Sept. 1st and is open to all. Good luck!
And I promise to be back soon with a few vacation stories that hopefully aren't exceedingly boring, some sewing stuff (including an update on the woefully neglected hexagon quilt) ... and NO talk about unpacking! LOL!
