Blog Hop: It's My day on the I Love Precut Quilts Blog Hop
I think this is my 3rd book review blog hop
and I have enjoyed everyone of them!
There is something so exciting and fun about being one of the first people to see a new quilting book. To know that another like minded creator has poured time, energy and love into turning their design inspirations into a project(s) for us to make and enjoy too, is just exciting to me!
This is Trish's 3rd book and her first in the modern quilting genre!
You can read more about Trish over on her blog,
I don't know about your, but when I first look at a quilt book, I skim through the pictures to see what catches my eye.....
Would I want to make a project or two or more....because that's the most important reason to buy a new book...then I look to see if the instructions are clear and simple, with enough illustrations for this very visual learner.....
Trish's book checked off all of my list....
I was intrigued by this book's title too...I have over the years, as I am sure a lot of you have, accumulated a number of precuts in all the different forms....mostly charm packs, because they are a great and affordable way to buy every design in a new fabric line that I've just fell in love with.
But, then I end up hoarding them...so I had quite a stack to choose from....
And you know me, I just had to take the opportunity to use some and try out one of Trish's patterns to show you on this blog hop.....
It took me a few minutes to narrow my list down to just one.....which when I think back, I probably spent almost as much time deciding on which project and which charms, as it took to sew the whole quilt top!!
To say this quit top came together quickly is not exaggerated.....
and don't we all need to have a few patterns in our back pocket to bring out
when we are in a time crunch situation!! Well this is one of them.
But don't think you have to have precuts to buy this book....
You can use your yardage too, and just cut to size...may take a few minutes longer, but no ones counting!
This was my charm pack choice: so sweet and cute...
perfect for a Nana floor quilt for my new grand baby, Ava!!
You remember how I said you don't have to use precuts if you don't want to.....
a lovely online friend(Lorraine), sent me this bundle of loveliness to make a floor quilt for Ava...
And being as we only have hardwood floors, doubling up the floor quilt will be happening....so this is going to become another I love Precut Quilts...with yardage, 😉
After washing....doesn't it just have an antique quilt feel to it!!!
And here's the second quilt made with 14 FQ and yardage.....so technically I did use a precut, just not the one the pattern called for, lol.... but you'll forgive me when you see how totally adorable this version turned out!!!

.....and there is nothing better than a quilt with a baby on it....especially when that sweet baby is my first grandchild!!! My heart is full.
She loves it Lorraine she is so drawn to the bright colours!!!
That's just the first quilt in this book of 16 fast and fun projects!!!
The next one I might try......
