Book Review A Quilt Book

Recently I was lucky to find this book at the library.  I picked it up and started looking at the amazing photo's. And then I realized that I knew who the author is!  I had been following her blog for awhile!
I loved the book once I got it home and started getting into it!   I love all the quilts in the book.  The instructions are clear.  And the projects in the book are all pretty simple for the beginner quilter.  Even the more advance projects are simple.   There is one applique project that is beautiful but it has a lot of tiny pieces to applique.  But it is a beautiful quilt! 
Elizabeth has a unique way of cutting and organizing (managing) all the pieces of fabric for each quilt. 
The instructions are easy to follow.  And I guarantee you'll successfully make a beautiful quilt if you buy this book.  Or if your lucky enough to find it at the library.
My favorite quilt in the book is this one . . .

I have this quilt started.  Mine is pink and lime green.  I am making it as a donation quilt.  It will go to a little girl living at Christ's Haven Childrens Home in Keller, Texas.  Click here to go to their website.  I have challenged myself and a few friends to make quilts for the children this year.  We have 30 quilts to make! 

Hopefully I'll get some sewing time this week to get the pink/lime version completed.  I have a blue version cut out and ready to begin piecing. 

The book is available at Amazon.  Click here.  If you go to the Amazon link you can look inside the book!   I am sure it is available at your local quilt shop.  Or maybe your library!  Check it out! 

So since your off to check out Elizabeth's great book  I'll get back to the sewing room now!  

Happy sewing!
