Fat-Quarter Quickies Blog Tour Day 2!!

Good Morning!  Welcome to my stop along the Fat Quarter Quickie's blog tour!  You all know that Kathy and I are friends and I'm happy to have a chance to share her new book with you!  In true Teacher's Pet form, this book is filled with great patterns and easy to read and understand instructions.



Kathy also has a Creative Grids ruler that is a companion to the book, along with good instructions on how to use it. It's the perfect ruler to go with all those precuts you've been 'saving'.   The nice part though, you don't need the ruler to make these projects.

Kathy asked us each to pick our favorite quilt to talk about. No problem for me, hands down it's this Sail Away pattern.  I love it's a nice classic design, and look at the wonderful quilting on that! To me this quilt is timeless. 

What's the great thing about a blog hop?  The opportunity to win something!  Leave a comment for a chance to win and e-copy of Kathy's book, Fat Quarter Quickies.  Then check out all the stops on this hop to better your odds of winning!
