Book of Days

Fresh Fabric Treats
Moda Bake Shop Designers
Stash Books; $21.95

If you aren’t familiar with Moda Bake Shop, it’s an online bakery of sorts, filled with jelly rolls, honey buns and layer cakes. Of course, we’re talking about precuts. Moda has taken the reins on this idea with eight types of precuts, five named after baked goods. At the Bake Shop, you’ll encounter a number of chefs. These would be the Moda Fabrics designers. This book showcases a fun mix of 16 projects from those chefs. You’ll find a selection of seven quilts, several bags, a pillow, table runner and accessories. If you are looking for a project to use your precuts, you’ll find a recipe here.

Look for the book at your favorite book retailer. Here’s a link to Amazon if you would like to learn more about the book.

Quilt This!

Quilt This!
Lynda Smith
American Quilter’s Society; $24.95

We’ve come a long way since the days of “quilt as desired” with no idea for patterns. In this wide format book, Lynda Smith offers more than 80 quilting motifs suitable for both machine and hand quilting. The designs are sorted into four categories: gardens and woods; swirls and curls, motifs and other stuff; and children and playtime. You’ll find patterns that range from elegant swirls to whimsical ducks in waves. The designs can be used as is or as a starting point to enlarge or reduce, combine and adapt.

Here’s a link, if you’d like to add it to your library.
