Love this book, but really?

Fat Quarter StyleI recently saw a sample quilt hung up in a shop during a shop hop and I know this is bad, but I don’t usually buy books from my LQS – I can get them on Amazon for 1/2 the price they charge in the shop and that leaves me more money for material during shop hops.

So I fell in love with the raindrop quilt in this book: Fat Quarter Style

So I ordered it from Amazon and I fell in love with so many of the quilts in that book. However:

  • Yes, all these patterns are fat quarter friendly
  • However, what they don’t tell you is that you will need yards and yards of “background” fabric – usually white in the case of almost all of the patterns in this book.

The directions are great, the pictures are great – but I think the title is a little misleading – you will use up lots of fat quarters, but you will spend a lot in background fabric too.  So I think it evens itself out.
