Thank you for all the Pumpkin quilt love! I've had so much fun seeing cute pumpkin blocks and quilt tops popping up on Instagram!
I took the week off from sewing...but I did sneak into my sewing room once to start a project from this book, The Quilt Block Cookbook, by Amy Gibson.
This book is pretty ingenious. Everything is laid out like a cookbook, and the units of each block are the "ingredients". It's very cute and the photography is gorgeous.
I made block 32 Flag Day. I'm going to keep at it and make a whole quilt out of this block!
The block looks HUGE compared to Sophie! She wanted to make sure I got her freshly painted pink nails in the picture. ;)
There are "recipes" for 50 blocks and sampler quilt patterns in the back. I love the creative layouts for the sampler quilts. I love sampler quilts but I don't always love the block layouts...there are beautiful modern ones in this book.
You can find this book and get a better peek inside of it here.
I'm taking a little sewing haitus to work on some house and family projects...but I have a fun quilt and tutorial to share next week. I made the quilt top and even wrote the tutorial... and my Mom brain completely forgot about it! So I'll post it next week.
Have a great weekend!
