You can’t help but smile when you see all the whimsical projects throughout this book. If you think you could never in a million years make an original and clever quilt like one of these, then you should definitely check out this book.
Using the “Hoochy Mama” technique for piecing blocks allows you to create a quilt that’s completely your own. You’ll find ideas for tons of blocks – people, animals, food, the alphabet – if you can think of it, you can sew it! And if you can’t think of it, by the time you finish reading this book, you will! I have so many ideas floating around in my head and can’t wait to put them all together with fabric.
The Gallery is full of projects that will make the creative part of your brain jump into overdrive.
There are also very helpful discussions about color and how to choose fabrics for your projects.
And an entire section on how to create faces!
If you’d like to get out of your box, just leave a comment here and tell me about a quilt you would like to make using Mary Lou’s and Melanie’s techniques, and you could win your very own autographed copy of Out of the Box with Easy Blocks! I’ll announce the winner on Friday.
Have a terrific week!
