Check out what quilters are saying about Little Gems at ShopMartingale:

“I just finished one of the projects featured in Connie’s book, called ‘Serenity,’ and I love it! As Connie suggests, I picked fabrics at random as I was putting the blocks together…I am already picking my next project!”

“These are great looking miniature quilts. Great for embellishments! Good patterns to use up scraps. A definite must-have book for your quilting library.”

“What a neat book! I love paper piecing and Connie’s patterns are very precise and easy to understand. I have fabric waiting for the ‘Playing with Plaids’ quilt.”

“If you, like me, keep all your scraps and leftover fabric to use in a project later, then let me tell you that this book is for us.”

“Easy to read and understand; makes creating these miniatures such a joy. The step-by-step instructions make it so simple. Even beginners will be able to quilt one of Connie Kauffman’s lovely designs.”


BIG GIVEAWAY! Win a beautiful bundle of new “Jewels and Gems” fabric (not even officially available yet!) from our friends at Island Batik, a copy of Little Gems, PLUS a pack of our Papers for Foundation Piecing!
