PRECUT BONANZA! 200 PIECED BLOCKS FROM CUT STRIPS AND SHAPES
So last night I was lucky enough to attend a book signing at Scrap and Sew in Lutz for Kimberly Einmo’s new book -Precut Bonanza. This book is the third and final installment of her precuts trilogy. She did tell us she has signed contracts for two more books so keep an eye out for new stuff from her next year too!
This book is a sampler quilters dream. She gives you recipes and instructions for constructing 200 blocks all from precuts. There are gorgeous photographs included in the book showing examples of pretty sampler quilts made from the blocks. She gave the recommendation of copying the blocks so you can see the values in grayscale for planning your fabric. I’ll be using my handy iPhone app to do that!
Of course I had to get a photo with the author!
AQS has a sample of the book so you can see a few pages inside and get an idea of what the book contains. I love the quilt photos! Take a look!
Kimberly was so sweet and took time to talk to everyone in the shop. We all kind of knew each other either from quilt guild or from the shops crafter nights. I signed up to go to crafters night next Friday so I can have some sewing fun with friends. They sew from 6PM to midnight working on all sorts of projects. I’m not sure what I’m going to take yet but it’ll be something that needs attention.
While at the shop I had to do some general shopping and found a few other things to come home with me:
Kimberly’s new book, an owl pattern and a pile of scraps!
It was a really fun night. My hubby met me over there and we had dinner before heading home. This morning I had to take Bernie to the vet for a nail trim and to get her tooshie glands looked at. She had a blast! I’ve never seen a dog that loves the vet more than her.
And now I’m off to make all sorts of doggie crafts for a craft show! Have a great weekend!
