New Book, Small Quilts

There's a new book coming out which will excite many of you. Hold on now, I know what you're thinking, don't get TOO excited. I didn't write it. It does have my quilts in it, however. The book is  called 101 Fabulous Small Quilts, published  by Martingale & Co. and will be out in February.
                                      101 Fabulous Small Quilts
 
Even though it's not a book of new patterns, it will contain many of the patterns from my books. So some of the projects will be new to you if you do not have all of my books. Wow, 25 quilt patterns from my books will be included, how about that? Many of you already have most or all of my books and I know, I know, it's not as good as a NEW one from me but still . . . . it's nice for those of you who do not have any of the books. Now you can get many of my patterns in one volume. So it's a very good deal.

 
101 Fabulous Small Quilts contains wonderful patterns designed by many of our favorite quilt designers - Kim Diehl, Country Threads, Lori Smith, Little Quilts, etc. I cannot wait to get my hands on this myself. I see that you can view photos of some of the quilts and also pre-order from Amazon . Your local quilt shop will also probably be able to pre-order the book for you so ask for it there too.

 
As far as I know, however (I have not actually seen a copy yet), this new book will not contain any of the text, history or commentary from any of the individual books, just the patterns, and not all of them anyway. If you own my "real" books you will still be ahead of the game. For those of you who don't actually read all of that extra stuff, this one will suit you just fine. To the rest of you, this is NOT an excuse to stop buying my books, okay? Maybe there will even be another one someday.

 
So, it certainly looks like you will have even more quilts to choose from for next year's small quilt projects. One quilt per month again, perhaps. Let's see - 101 quilts, 12 months in a year -  that should keep you busy for about . . .  oh, 8 1/2 years,  LOL.

Looks like a great book. I do however have all of your books and also enjoy reading the diary entries and history that comes with them. Is there really going to be another "One quilt per month for a year"? I hope so. It's been very enjoyable so far. Thanks Kathy for thinking of the idea.

Great to hear you've joined the Small Quilt Talk group -- it's a great group, very creative ladies. We just did a maple leaf block swap -- all of the blocks are so cute!

Too exciting--besides your wonderful quilts (which I probably already have unless there are some from your American Schoolgirl Club!) there are oodles more--Congrats (at least they clearly know who the Queen of Small quilts is!)
