The delightful Katy over at I'm a Ginger Monkey has finally been allowed to 'let the cat out of the bag' so to speak, and tell us about a fabulous book she's been working on with some of her "really, really, REALLY good friends".
" Fat Quarterly Shape Workshop for Quilters was born out of our shared history as four modern quilters who came together as a team: specifically, a history of collaborating in swaps and virtual quilting bees. For that reason, we devoted a large portion of our book to quilt blocks — a mix of block patterns and ideas both traditional and modern, classic and original, and all with our own twist. All are perfect for those participating in quilting bees, or who love making sampler quilts, pillows, or projects featuring a single block design. And as a nod to our continued evolution, those block patterns are complemented by a selection of larger sewn project ideas, from placemats to pillows to full-sized quilts, all mixed together with a few surprises."
In the meantime you can read even more about it over at Fat Quarterly or pre-order it for May 2012 release at Amazon..... Hmm my birthday is in May!
