Double your choices, double your fun: quilts two ways

Why limit yourself to just one color palette—or just one craft? In this week’s featured eBooks, you’ll find two ways to create every design you see. Get ready for some delightful double vision!

Double Take: Quilts with that Hopscotch Twist
by Heather Willms and Elissa Willms

A mother-daughter team create their own quilt challenge: start with the same blocks, but make quilts that reflect each person’s unique style.

From Double Take
“Stash of Stars” and “Starry Nights” from
Double Take

Seeing double—with projects in Heather’s country colors and again in Elissa’s bold brights—will inspire you to look at your quilts in a whole new way.

Double Take Amazon review: “What I particularly enjoyed was the variety of ways that color choice, size, and layout impact the look of the finished quilt. It was amazing to see ‘Pinwheel Pizzazz’ on the front cover and ‘A Taste of Turquoise’ on the back cover, and realize that it was the same block.”

Folk-Art Friends: Hooked Rugs and Coordinating Quilts
by Polly Minick and Laurie Simpson

Two talented sisters—and popular fabric designers for Moda—team up for quilt-and-rug duets in a traditional folk-art style.

From Folk-Art Friends
“Folk Art Stars” quilt and hooked rug from
Folk-Art Friends

Feature patriotic and Americana themes in richly colored quilts and coordinating hooked rugs, each paired to perfection!

Folk-Art Friends Amazon review: “…a wonderfully composed book with clear instructions and beautiful pictures. Inspiration comes from the projects and the wonderful ways the rugs and quilts are displayed in Polly’s home…a must have for any quilter and hooker and a tempting book for those who would like to learn either art.”
