We're nearing the end of the tour here and I'm so glad to have a stop on it!
For those of you that haven't been following the tour along, Fat Quarterly Shape Workshop for Quilters is a book written by four members of the Fat Quarterly Gang (Katy Jones, Brioni Greenberg, Tacha Bruecher and John Q Adams).
There's a whole lot of love for this book on my blog.
I fell in love with the entire book when I spotted this quilt on the back cover:
Orange Soda Quilt by Katy Jones.
And I've been thrilled to run the Soda Pop Quilt-along because there needs to be more of that quilt in the world.
The fabulous Katy is even joining us and making another.
Stop by the Flickr group if you get a chance to see all the lovely that is being made. There's still enough time to join in if you'd like an Orange Soda of your own!
Lucky for me (and everyone really) there's more than just one fabulous quilt in this book. There's 60 blocks and 12 full project instructions.
I had a really hard time picking just one block from the book that I liked so I've started my own personal Fat Quarterly Sampler Project:
Eight-pointed Star and Four Flies.
I'm going to be picking four blocks from every shape chapter. So I've still got a bit to go. Really I'm waiting on Bella by Lotta Jansdotter to come out so I can pair it with Echo.
Having worked in a bookstore in the past, I've become super picky of quilting/sewing books. More often than not I'll check them out from the library.
I've bought four copies of this book so far. One for myself and the others as gifts because I really think this book needs to be on everyone's shelves.
Don't have a copy of your own yet?
Lark Crafts is graciously offering a copy to be given away to one of my readers.
All you need to do is leave me a comment, any comment to be entered.
I'll accept entries until noon eastern standard time on Friday July 20th.
Not sure what to write in your comment? How about telling me your favorite shape?
Thank you so much for visiting on my stop of the tour!
Don't forget to head over to Fat Quarterly on 7/18 for the Wrap-Up Party!
