    This book was written with a lot of love. The direction, the photos and most importantly the patterns are beautiful. I will be making most of them.

    A Life with quilts

    This is a very engaging book. I have made 4 quilts from this book with plans to make all of them. Melanie's directions are very easy to follow, resulting in a beautiful quilt top. I am in love with this book and her stories.

Description

I want to spend everyday making quilts. Some days that might mean I sneak in fifteen minutes, and some days are ALL DAY LONG. I'll take whatever I can get. A day with my hands buried in fabric or fiddling with patchwork is a day well spent.

I wrote this book for the beginner quilter who has just fallen down a rabbit's hole. I wrote it for the seasoned quilter who needs a little fresh inspiration or a look into other ways of making. I wrote it for the quilter who just wants to look at yummy photos and hear a bit of rambling from a fellow quilt maker. I wrote it for my grandma whose well used hands would pet her quilts and tell me where the fabric came from. I wrote it for us, I wrote it for YOU.

  • A soft cover wire bound book will be mailed to you.
  • Patterns are all beginner friendly and play with color combinations.
  • Skills that are required are straight line sewing, making flying geese and snowballing. THAT'S ALL!
  • Some of the quilts are quite quick and some may take a bit longer.
  • My favorite part of this book is that it comes with FIVE quilt patterns (no side projects, just quilts!).
  • Smallest pattern is 60x60", largest pattern is 76x96".
  • Patterns included are Mariposa, Lulu Louise, Sassy Granny, Hello Posy and Attic Window.
  • All patterns are illustrated. If you like the look of my usual patterns, the book patterns are just like them. Very easy to understand and read!
  • There are 64 pages in the book.
  • All patterns are fat quarter friendly, except one.
  • I've tucked methods, memories and ramblings within these pages.
  • I will be running quilt alongs for each of these patterns in 2022.
  • Use #ALifewithQuilts for sharing on Instagram.
  • Find the coordinating quilt labels here.
