A Cut above, by Gerri Robinson, published by Martingale b1218_c

It is easy to see why certain quilting books become best sellers, especially when they contain beautiful quilts, easy to follow instructions, great visuals and a variety of projects!  That is the case for "A Cut Above: Turn Charm Squares, Strips, and More into Beautiful Patchwork", by Gerri Robinson and published by Martingale.

This book has 18 brilliant projects that use 5" and 10" squares, 2 1/2" strips, fat quarters, and fat eighths.

Projects range in size from small projects, such as pillows, box-style seat cushion, to wall art (quilt in a frame) 24"x8" to quilts that range in size from 52" x 62 1/2"  to 90 1/2" x 90 1/2".

In "signature style" of Martingale, all of the designs come with easy to follow instructions that have excellent visuals.

There is also a section on "Quiltmaking Basics", making this book an excellent book for beginners, as well as advanced quilters interested in working with pre-cuts.

SewCalGal hopes you get a chance to check out this book at your local quilt shop, favorite online shop, or at Martingale's online store.  I think you'll also see why this has become a best selling quilt book, that I think is going to help quilters make many spectacular quilts.  With 18 great projects in this book, it truly has an excellent value.  Even if you only purchase one project book this year, you may want to consider this one.
