Good Morning! Today is my day on Kathy Brown's Take 5 Fat Quarters blog hop! Kathy and I have been friends for a long time and I'm thrilled to participate. This is Kathy's 6th book with Martingale and it's really a great book. From the first look through the pages I knew it was a great book for quilters, right off I saw projects I wanted to make, and great for shops because it's a perfect book for classes and kits. And wouldn't it be fun to take the book and a kit and head off to sew days with friends!
On of my favorite things about Kathy's books is the introduction of each quilt and the inspiration behind it. When I saw Swimming the Side Stroke I loved it, but it was really the story behind it that sold me. She was inspired by the colorful swimsuits of her youth and right away I was transported to my own childhood!
The blocks go together so fast, and the next thing you know you have a quilt.
Darla quilted this quilt in an over all bubbles pattern that seemed perfect for it. I love how it turned out, so colorful and cheerful!
Take 5 Fat Quarters is a great book! If you'd like a chance to win an e-copy of this book leave a comment here and I'll pick a winner at the end of the week!
