12 Projects for Your Favorite Fabrics
Andy Knowlton

How many fat quarters does it take to make a quilt: 6, 8, 10, 12, 14? The choice is yours! America’s favorite fabric cut gets a fun makeover in a dozen all-new patterns from popular blogger Andy Knowlton. Stars, pinwheels, arrows, and Churn Dashes are just a few of the classic motifs that get Andy’s fresh fat-quarter treatment. Easy-to-sew quilts will inspire quilters to break into those bundles, unfold their singles, or even cut yardage into 18″ x 22″ chunks of fabric to re-create her cheerful designs.

52 More Blocks to English Paper Piece
Katja Marek

Hexagons are as hot as ever—that’s why best-selling author Katja Marek is back with 52 new ways to play with the hexie shape! Using her efficient, accurate methods for English paper piecing, Katja shares streamlined how-to techniques such as basting with glue and using precut paper templates.

Katja’s also expanded the possibilities by including a variety of block sizes. Fourteen blocks measure 12″ finished and 38 blocks measure 6″ finished, resulting in loads of design options. Five pretty projects will help you show off the blocks you create. Bonus: Quilters can look forward to a fun new online quilt-along based on the book in January 2020.

Yoko Saito's I Love HousesYoko Saito’s I Love Houses
Yoko Saito
First English translation!

Japanese master quilter Yoko Saito returns with an all-new collection of house projects to build and enjoy! Twenty bags, totes, purses, pouches, wall quilts, and more celebrate two sides of Ms. Saito’s work—her traditional patchwork roots and her fanciful appliqué creations.

Create a city skyline, construct a tiny town, stitch and frame single dwellings, or appliqué a giant mushroom house owned by two little ladybugs—so many fresh ideas to savor. Inspired by her travels throughout Europe and the Scandinavian countries, Yoko Saito clearly feels right at home with houses—they reflect the warmth of the world around us.

Feed SacksFeed Sacks
The Colorful History of a Frugal Fabric
Linzee Kull McCray

Feed sacks are the perfect example of a utilitarian product turned into something beautiful. Author Linzee Kull McCray explores the history of the humble feed sack, from plain cotton sacks to exuberantly patterned and colorful bags that were repurposed into frocks, aprons, and quilts by thrifty housewives in the first half of the twentieth century. Extensive imagery and at-scale reproductions of these fabrics create an inspiring sourcebook of pattern and color—and offer a welcome visit to the days of yesteryear. Patterns not included.
