Square Dance (Revised Edition)
by Martha Thompson
Fancy Quilts from Plain Squares

The concepts within this book were first published in 1996 and became wildly popular which then lead to classes and workshops everywhere. 

Martingale - Square Dance (Print version + eBook bundle)The amazing thing is every quilt design in the book originates from a simple square which is then sewn into a simple grid & then cut apart & sewn back together  where it magically creates layers of such beautiful designs.

You will find 11 projects plus a section at the end about designing your own creations.

You just have to sit down and study this book to even begin to unlock all the great potential it holds within it's pages. I am always amazed how differently our minds work and the incredible ideas that are continually popping up in the quilting world.

I am definitely excited to try this concept out. 
I say give it a look!

a batch of Barbara J. Jones

Martingale - A Batch of QuiltSoup (Print version + eBook bundle)

QuiltSoup designs are just so much fun.  They describe them as both charming & whimsical.
I would have to agree.  Applique' is their forte and so they have developed their own method to accomplish the applique patterns.  They include a complete class on how to needle turn applique the QuiltSoup way within the pages of this book. 
There are 9 patterns that combine piecing and applique. 
The photos are beautiful, the instructions are clear and precise.
You will love the fresh color combinations as well as the charming designs.  They are all so yummy you will have trouble deciding which to make first.

Martingale - Homestyle Quilts (Print version + eBook bundle)

Homestyle Quilts....simple patterns & savory recipes by Kim Diehl & Laurie Baker.

This book combines our love of classic patchwork with wonderful recipes. 
If you know Kim Diehl you love her warm colors and style of quilting.  Her work envokes the feeling of  masterpieces from times past.  Her quilts beckon you to wrap up in them with a warm cup of cocoa.
Everyone needs a few of these in their collection.

I especially love that she keeps the patterns simple and adds machine applique for an added feeling of charm.
This book is a fun collaboration between Kim & Laurie.  It shows off both of their strengths as quilt makers & designers.

There are 13 beautiful patchwork & applique projects along with  tasty recipes for soups, casseroles, desserts & more.  Simple enough to get dinner taken care of so you can get to the important business of quilting.

This book just screams warm, comfy, classic country.  I just love this book!
Makes me want to shut myself in my sewing room and quilt the winter away.
Take a look for yourself, I don't think you will be disappointed.
