More Take 5 Quilts by Kathy Brown

Martingale - More Take 5 Quilts (Print version + eBook bundle)This is Kathy's second book which uses the philosophy of choosing just 5 fabrics.

Her original thoughts were to take 5 min., choose 5 fabrics, and in 5 hours you could have a lap size quilt size quilt.  Great idea!

I love this second book and the additions to the patterns from her first book.

While most of the patterns are of a simple design, I love that I can complicate them as much as I like. 

When you are only using 5 fabrics I think you pay more attention to the details of each fabric. 

There are 16 quilt patterns which can easily be enlarged if you are looking to make something more bed size.

The instructions, layout and photos are very clear.  Every detail she has given to making fabric requirements and cutting instructions simple, easy and quick are such a great feature of this book.  I wish more books were laid out this way.

While the designs are traditional and somewhat simple, I think this is such a great go to resource when you need something wonderful...quick!

Great stash buster as you only need 5 fabrics!

Really loved this book, as I did her first one. 

Take 5 and take a look!

Baltimore Garden Quilt by Barbara M. Burnham

This is a classic hand applique' book revolving around
a classic Baltimore Album quilt. 

There are 25 blocks which are a recreation from a 1848 quilt.

The book comes with a CD so you can print out full size patterns for the blocks &
swag border.  It also comes with an additional 20 unique flower patterns.

I loved the introduction about the original quilt and the inspiration to reproduce it and give it new life.

The instructions, photos & layout are wonderful!

If you have a traditional Baltimore Album quilt on your bucket list....
this might be the one for you!

Country Cottage Quilting by Lynette Anderson

You will just delight in the many small projects within this book. 
While you will find a few quilts, it is primarily a source for charming
needlework scenes as embellishment to some down right lovely little projects.

The theme of cottages, gardens & flowers is found throughout. 
There are 15 projects which combine stitchery with patchwork.

I think one of my favorite projects is the "Busy Bee's" wall hanging.  She uses Yo-Yo's to make Delphiniums!  You don't have to be a flower lover like me to get hooked on this book.

You will notice she has a bit of a different style.....almost an English (UK) feel.   Amazing enough she is a resident of Australia.  Do they have Delphiniums in Australia?

Take a look, I am sure you will be instantly captivated!

Farm Fresh by Buggy Barn Quilts

For any of you who have ever done a Buggy Barn style
stack and slash method quilt, you will be surprised to know
that they are now writing pattern books using techniques
other than their famous stack and slash.

This book is based around a sampler style applique' quilt.
It's all about flowers and the containers you would find around
the farm to display those fresh cut flowers in.

You have full size applique' patterns, and a bonus quilt called Blue Dahlia.

I must say that this applique' project is just down right "happy"!
