Applique' With Attitude by Piece O' Cake Designs

Applique With Attitude
I don't know about you, but I am a huge fan of these gals.
Within the pages of this newest book, you will find 10 projects which are done with a little twist on their applique' method.

They have used big stitches in Perle cotton which are meant to be seen.
It is much faster, adds new texture to each piece & is just plain fun!

There are pillows, wall hangings, table toppers and a quilt or two.

The wonderful thing is each design could work into a larger quilt by simply combining the blocks you love with a few filler blocks & improvisational piecing.

These are just so fun, perky and bright, they will capture your heart.
Full size templates, great instructions and fantastic photos.

So get out and try some "Applique' With Attitude"!

Monday Book Club

OK here is the real post.....Don't know what blogger did, but all we had was a title.  Now for the rest of the story!

Modern Patch Work by Elizabeth Hartman

Elizabeth is the oh so talented author of
She is such a creative force in the quilting world.
This is her second book....Her first "The Practical Guide To Patchwork" was wildly successful. 
I still think it is the best book out there for those who are craving to dive into the world of quilting.

Modern Patch Work, has 12 quilt projects that take you beyond the basics.
It is geared toward the intermediate quilter.  They are all clean and modern with a little more detail.

Elisabeth has such incredible color sense.  Each quilt has the color combinations laid out very plainly.  She has also included alternate color combinations and ideas which are extremely helpful.

I am very impressed with the layout, clear cutting and sewing instructions & fantastic photos.

Every page is rich with color and inspiration.....I love this book!

Simple Charm by Kim Diehl

Simple CharmKim has a way of taking scraps that seem to have nothing in common and create beautiful projects which will warm up any home.

Kim explains her passion for scrappy quilts and how you can create your own.

She offers "Pin Point" tips throughout the book (little tricks and tips on many aspects of quilting.). 

She also offers suggestions about quilting the quilt top.

There are 12 projects, some have a touch of appllique', some are small table toppers, some are quilts.

The photos are simply gorgeous!  The instructions impeccable. 

I have added a few projects to my wish list......I am sure you will too!
