Spectacular Rectangles

Another delightful quilt book has been released this spring called "Spectacular Rectangles: 12 Quilts from a Simple Shape", by Ilene Bartos, published by Martingale & Company, home of That Patchwork Place.

Every design comes with a fun "quilting suggestion".

Basket Weave pattern used a combinittaion of fat-quarter colleciton of gradated atiks with a black background.  Really makes this design pop! 

Excellent instructions with great visuals

Autumn paths is a spectacular design with easy to follow instructions.  All based on strips of braids in rectangular bars where placement of the ligtest colors in the center of the quilt make it very spectacular.  More insights are shared in this book.

Treasure oxes is such a fun design, that would work for a beginner quilter, as well as an advanced quilter.  It is also a design that would easily allow anyone interested in playing with fibre-arts to expand upon this lovely design.
