Special Giveaway: A Copy of 50 Fat Quarter Makes!



For those of you who keep up to date on our blog posts, we are doing another book review and book giveaway! Yay! On this fine rainy afternoon, I took to my laptop with a side of strawberries and glass of orange juice to finally read this adorable book by eleven incredibly talented designers. Here we go!

50 Fat Quarter Makes was made for all of us out there who are hoarders--hoarders of fat quarter pieces. If you are anything like me, you have tons of fabric laying around with absolutely no idea of what to make with it. Maybe you bought the fabric with a project in mind, but now your original idea no longer sounds good, or maybe you bought it just because it was too pretty to pass up. Either way we got you covered with this book. 

First off, I'd like to point out just how much I love this table of contents! Projects are arranged by how many fat quarters you have at your disposal. It starts with one and grows all the way to ten, ranging from simple projects to more complex projects. Choose your project and get started!


The more simple projects like a dog bandana,  a simple skirt, a baby bib, an adorable pot holder, or a sewing machine cover. These projects are all super simple, but all something I can definitely see myself doing. The best part about this book, and I cannot stress this enough: that this book is arranged by Fat Quarters! I can't get over just how handy that is for a night when you feel like doing a quick little project to get rid of the crafty itch. 





I've been meaning to make me one of these covers for my sewing machine for so long now! I think this is probably a sign that I should get started on it. 



This basket! It's just oozes cuteness! Doesn't it just make you want to get your hands on this book to get started on all these absolutely adorable projects?


For more difficult projects, take a look at the pictures below. This book teaches you how to make a garden party tablecloth,  a chevron quilt, or a patchwork skirt. I don't know about you, but I have my eye on that chevron quilt. Give me!








The instructions are simple and easy to follow with cute little illustrations and tips as well as a materials list for each project. 
This book is simple enough for beginner sewers to work their way through the book from the easy, one-fat quarter projects, all the way to the complex, ten fat quarter projects. I would even venture to say that some of these projects are simple enough for kids to do and if you are a mother or grandmother, it may be a great way to bond with your little one :).




Includes nifty templates and a technique section showing the proper way to sew specific stitches. 



Don't be fooled! There are tons of awesome projects in this book, I am only highlighting a few. Be sure to enter to win this prize and you could be making your own masterpieces. 



I hope that I have been able to peak your interest in this adorable little book. It's full of cute projects for you when your creative juices are just overflowing.
