FYI: I'm in the New Fat Quarters Book (Giveaway)



Hi Friends. It was a very happy mail day when this book arrived in my box. Fat Quarters: Small Fabrics, More Than 50 Big Ideas is a fantastic book, which lives up to it's title. There are so many great project ideas in here! And I'm giving one away so be sure to scroll down and enter.


Not only was I thrilled to have a copy of this book for my own sewing scheming, but it's the second book to which I've contributed a project! It's so exciting to see my work in print. I have two projects in the Babies & Kids section: My Child's Fat Quarter Reversible Apron


And a little baby dress made entirely of fat quarters.



I had so much fun developing these projects (over a year ago) and I hope others will enjoy sewing them too.


This sweet dress has a vintage vibe, which I love for babies, but it could be modern colorblock too. 



The apron lends itself to all sorts of creative possibilites, especially given the pom pom trim. I love giving these as birthday gifts.


And just wait until you see all the other projects! This book will spur a whole new fat quarter binge.

I don't own any fat quarters...but have way too many yards of fabric!! I am sure I could make many of these and not make a dent in my stash. :>) MS

Mary Sue said...

oops...I didn't identify myself....

Kathy E. said...

I own about a dozen fat quarters. I am usually drawn to the yardage of fabrics I love, although if I need just a small amount I will shop the fat quarters. I could use this book to use up some stash!

Tracy said...

At least 50, if not more!

Thank you for the opportunity!

Liberata said...

I own 100-plus fat quarters, at least. The book looks really nice and useful!

I have a bin full of fat quarters. This book would be great to use up some of my stash!

Anonymous said...

I'm kinda new to all of this and I only have 7 full fat quarters waiting for the next project. I am trying to behave because each time I go to the shop, I would really like to buy about 10 of them... I will probably be over 100 sooner than I think.

I have a large amount of fat quarters as I initially purchased this cut when I began learning to sew, now i prefer to buy bigger pieces but I'd love to use some of the beautiful pieces I have in fat quarter projects.

I don't have any fat quarters yet, but this book would be a reason to invest in some :-)

Kristin said...

I don't yet have a fat quarter stash, but this lovely book may change that ;-)

I have about 30 which is pretty good considering I regularly try to sew from my stash these days so my numbers are beginning to dwindle ==so I can buy more ;)

I have hundreds of fat quarters. I love their size and they are great for small projects. That they are fairly inexpensive is a bonus.
