17 Delightful Patterns for Precut 5″ Squares
Compiled by Lissa Alexander

Oh yes we did—you love the Moda All-Stars series of books so much, we’re publishing book #4! In Lucky Charm Quilts, you’ll find dazzling quilts from some of Moda’s most popular designers, all made with 5″ charm squares. Chapters are organized by how many charm packs to use: one, two, or three. And guess what? Each designer had to stick to one important rule: use at least 80% of the charm pack. So no worries about waste! Click here to see beautiful charm quilts from Laurie Simpson, Lisa Bongean, Jenny Doan, Pat Sloan, Jen Kingwell, and more—they’re magically delightful! 🍀

The 4" x 5" Quilt-Block AnthologyThe 4″ x 5″ Quilt-Block Anthology
182 Blocks for Reproduction Fabrics
Carol Hopkins and Linda M. Koenig

Coming soon: a decidedly different quilt-block book! Perfect for your reproduction fabrics, this timeless collection is packed with 180+ block designs in a size that makes them simply spectacular: 4″ x 5″. This 208-page, pattern-packed volume is based on blocks that started as a challenge in the authors’ Indiana quilt group: design 4″ × 5″ quilt blocks using reproduction fabrics in blue, black, red, and double pink. Boy did they meet the challenge! Pore over scrap-tastic fabric choices with a close-up photo of each block; then get inspired to set your blocks with several examples of magnificent sampler quilts. You’ll never run short of ideas for transforming the blocks from this stunning anthology into heirloom-worthy works of art.

Linda M. Koenig passed away shortly before this book went to press, saddening all of us who worked with her. Despite being ill, Linda, along with her good friend Carol Hopkins, put great effort into making this book a superb resource for lovers of reproduction fabrics and seekers of both classic and unusual block patterns. We’re grateful that she did.
