I am going to have fun.....

with this book!

Oh my goodness the quilts in this book are wonderful. I thought Kim Brackett's first book, Scrap-Basket Surprises was great but this one has me over the moon. I like how there is a mix of quilts some done with a Moda jelly roll line or a Bali Pop and others just done with the quilter's scraps. There is also a mix of pattern styles from traditional to more contemporary styles.

Here are a few of my favorites so far....

Summer Daze stitched by Darlene Johannis

Flower Boxes stitched by Karen Williamson

Bali Breeze stitched by Kim Brackett

There are 18 quilt patterns in the book and I don't know which one to pick first. I also love the Tipsy Baskets done in lots of Kaffee Fasset prints and the cover quilt, Picnic. I see lots of Moda fabrics in this quilt from different fabric lines and they all look great together.

Ok - this is not a paid endorsement- I just really really like this book. I just got the book today and I've picked it up to page through over a dozen times. I've been quilting for over 25 years and it isn't often that I get this jazzed about a book. I think this would be a great addition to any quilter's library whether you are a seasoned quilter or a beginner.

Happy stitching-
carol fun


  1. Oh my--I can do the same thing--buy a book of great designs and patterns and just can't wait to get home and start one----but something usually happens by the time I get home or up out of the chair---and---no projects get started!!!!
    I hope that doesn't happen to you--I will be watching!!!!
    Hugs,di and miss gracie
