More Take 5 Quilts

Good morning people! It's a great day here today.. why you ask?

More Take 5

Because today is my day on the blog hop for Kathy's great book More Take 5 Quilts! I'm particularly lucky, I happened to have had a chance to actually make a quilt for this book. Here's the one I made!

Connect the Dot

It's made with Annie's Farm Stand from LakeHouse. I like Kathy's designs so much we included some digital quilts in the Pam Kitty Love sales booklet. I think they really show off the fabric, which is what makes them so perfect. Sometimes you have a great fabric you want to show off and you're looking for just that perfect pattern.

Take 5Connects the Dots by Kathy Brown

Take 5 connects the dots

One of my favorite quilts in the book is Take 5 Climbs Jacobs Ladder. I couldn't wait to show off one of my favorite whites on this design. Using a print backgrounds is one of the things I love to do, and this pattern is perfect for it. Kathy's patterns are so simple to follow and the results are so fantastic.

Take 5 Climbs Jacobs Ladder by Kathy Brown

It's a great book full of great quilts. You've probably seen some over at Tara's and Carrie's blogs. Tomorrow is some sassy sister's, I don't know that any of us can guess what you'll see then!

It's your lucky day as well! I happen to have two copies of Kathy's More Take 5 Quilts to share! Leave me a comment and I'll draw 2 names  and let you know on Monday!
