Today I want to share insights about three new books published by Martingale this month, each packed with #CreativeGoodness:

BABY QUILTS FOR BEGINNERS: Easy to Make, Fun to Give, compiled by Karen M. Burns

MY REVIEW:

13 sweet projects from top designers including Kimberly Jolly, Amy Ellis, Melissa Corry, Sue Pfau, and more.   Perfect projects to make for babies and while perfect for beginners, I think even experienced quilters would enjoy making the projects in this new book.   And, don’t forget if you don’t have a baby in mind to make such a quilt for, many charity programs (e.g. Operation Homefront, Linus, shelters, etc) always appreciate the donation of handmade baby quilts.

SEW MANY NOTIONS: Wonderful Wool Appliques, Simple Stitcheries, and More, by Debbie Busby

MY REVIEW:

18 simple little applique’ projects that are absolutely perfect for those that love wool, including those wanting to learn to work with wool.  These projects are perfect to decorate your sewing space, as well as to make for gifts.  Projects include such items as: pincushions, needle holders, mini-quilts, a table mat, and much more. All of the designs have easy to follow instructions, with great visuals, making this an excellent resource for quilters of all levels.

A PIECE OF CAKE: Sweet and Simple Quilts from Layer Cake Squares by Peta Peace

MY REVIEW:

16 fun projects that range in size from 15 ½ x 15 ½” to 84 ½ x 84 ½”, as well as a pillow, table runners, wall-hangings and full size quilts. All of the designs have easy to follow instructions, with great visuals, making this an excellent resource for quilters of all levels.

 

I hope you get a chance to check out these books at your favorite quilt shop.  Of course, if you don’t see them do let them know you are interested in having them make these books available.  They are so new, that they may not be aware of them.  Don’t forget you can also check them out online at Martingale or Amazon.
