:: Fat Quarter Style Book Tour and Giveaway ::

Hello! Welcome to my stop on the Fat Quarter Style book tour. Fat Quarter Style is Fat Quarter Shop's new book published through their pattern company It's Sew Emma. I was so honored and thrilled they asked me to be apart of the tour.

My block was Lattice and although I only had to make one block this pattern was so cute and really quick I decided to make the crib-size quilt.

I used Lori Holt's Vintage Happy line and it worked out just perfect because this book gives cutting instructions for fat quarters and Lori has these wonderful prints in her lines that are already fat quarter size. So if you purchase 1 yard you get 4 different fat quarters and that's what my pattern called for, see...perfect!

I was having so much fun making this quilt that I made half-square triangles right away from my leftover block pieces and I used them on the back along with some yardage. 

The book includes 12 quilt patterns in 4 different sizes, Crib, Twin, Lap or Queen. The instructions are really clear and easy to follow. I think all of the quilts are really fun and they go together so quickly.

Fat Quarter Shop has generously given me a copy of the book to giveaway to one of you! Just leave a comment here and I'll pick a winner Monday, September 1st! (September already, really?) As always you can just say hi or hey or if you want tell me what blocks you've seen so far and what fabrics you might like to use to make them. I think that everyone has done such a great job and they all have put their own personal touch on them. It's so much fun to see. Good Luck!

 Visit these other stops on the tour to see more blocks from the book!

Wendy said...

what a beautiful quilt. The fabric you chose is perfect for a baby, but I could see this being changed completely by using a dark lattice with bright solids in place of prints.

I've visited all the Fat Quarter Style bloggers. Everyone has done a great job introducing the new blocks to us. I have two favorites that I'd like to make very soon. They are Sparklettes and Raindrops. I have some Kate Spain Terrain FQ which I've been hoarding that would look very nice in the Sparklettes quilt. I think ombre shades of solid colors would look great as Raindrops - on a drizzly gray background.
