I’m excited to be able to share insights with you today about a fun new book from Martingale:
“I Love Nine Patches: 16 Quilts from an All-Time Favorite Block” is definitely a book with #CreativeGoodness.
The timeless Nine Patch block has been reimagined by today’s top designers. Discover what you can do with a classic block–this perennial favorite is more versatile than you’ve ever imagined! Scrappy, traditional, or modern, you’ll find a Nine Patch design that’s perfect for your next project.
- Whether you love working with fat quarters, precut strips, or fabric from your stash, you’ll find designs that are ideal showcases for your favorite solids, brights, florals, reproduction prints, and more
- Featuring basic to intricate Nine Patch designs, in sizes ranging from lap sized to bed sized
- Put your own spin on tradition with fresh Nine Patch patterns created by favorite designers, including Lynne Hagmeier, Carrie Nelson, Sherri Falls, Kimberly Jolly, and many more
This book is definitely a “must have” for any quilter that enjoys scrap quilts as well as nine-patch quilts. All of the projects come with easy to follow instructions with great visuals. Plus, for beginners there is a Nine Patch Basics section that will teach you a variety of tips and techniques, including strip piecing, neat seams, and so much more.
Quilts range in size from 25 1/2 x 29 3/4 to 78 1/2″ x 90 1/2″, with the majority of the designs being pieced, yet one incorporates beautiful applique’.
I hope you get a chance to check out this fun new book at your favorite quilt shop. As always, if you don’t see it let them know that you’d like to have them carry this book. It is so new they may not yet be aware of it. Of course, you can also find it online at Martingale, as well as Amazon.
