I'm excited to share some insights, with you today, on five books, published by Martingale & Company, home of That Patchwork Place. Projects in these books all contain easy to follow instructions with great visuals, which is a common quality I consistently find in project books published by Martingale.
Home Sweet Quilt: Fresh, Easy Quilt Patterns From Jillily Studio, by Jill Finley is packed full of fun designs to make quilts, table toppers and wall-hangings for your home, or to give as gifts. SewCalGal is in love with EVERY project in this book.
Cuddle Me Quick: 11 Baby-Quilt Designs, by Christine Porter & Darra Williamson is a "must have" book for anyone cooking for eye-catching quilt designs perfect for baby gifts, as well as toddlers and small childrens. Many of the designs are also easily adaptable to a variety of other projects too, so don't overlook this book thinking it is limiting to making children's quilts....many more possibilities!
Baltimore Blocks for Beginners: A Step-by-Step Guide, by Mimi Dietrich, published by Martingale/That Patchwork Place is an excellent book for anyone interested in learning to applique', create Baltimore style blocks, as well as improve their applique' skills.
The Knitter's Book of Finishing Techniques, by Nancy M. Wiseman is a "must have" book for any knitter that is wanting to learn/improve their skills for finishing projects. This book is packed full of amazing tips and techniques that include great visuals! I'm truly delighted to see this book available and am confident it will become a best seller!
Easy Quilts for Beginners and Beyond: 14 Quilt Patterns From Quilt Maker Magazine is a fun book that would also make an excellent gift for a beginner quilter, but also appropriate for quilters of all levels that want to create easy, fast & fun quilts.
You should be able to find these books at your local quilt shop, or at Martingale's online shop.
