|My quilt top, made using a pattern from the book Fat Quarterly Shape Workshop|
I have the immense pleasure to bring you not only a book review, not only a glimpse of a project that I made from the book, but also giveaway of a copy of Fat Quarterly Shape Workshop for Quilters, written by 4 of your favorite Fat Quarterly members. If you are not familiar with Fat Quarterly, it is an ezine that is jam-packed with beautiful quilted projects that you can make. Much as the name implies, it is a quarterly online magazine, and the amount of talent in each issue is just astounding.
I am also posting this for the Blogger's Quilt Festival over at Amy's Creative Side!
A copy of the book arrived on my doorstep just 7 days ago; I had no idea it was coming, although I had heard of the book around the web. The cover looked super-enticing, and I figured if it was connected to Fat Quarterly, it must be good.
Well, let me just tell you that after perusing the book, I immediately knew I had to make one of the projects in it. And NOW. This is no small thing; I'm getting ready for Quilt Market next week, and have been sewing up a lot of outfits to wear there, as well as a new tote bag, among other things. There was no room in the schedule for another project. But of course, as we all know, sometimes projects just call to us, and they will not be made to wait.

All-in-all, great pattern. Super book. A must-have! I can definitely see it being used a lot in quilting bees, as there are so many fun blocks inside.
