kathy brown is quite the fun gal with a lot of talent. not only did she bring you the best seller Take 5: Quilts from Just 5 Fabrics , she also is author to another great book Strip-Smart Quilts: 16 Designs from One Easy Technique (That Patchwork Place)
where she makes 15 quilts using one technique. i love books like these because i feel like i am learning some little secret to make my quilting experience move that much faster and better.
yes, i kind of like her thinking.
well apparently a lot of you did too, because yup, there's now MORE take 5. and in this book she doesn't disappoint. her designs are great, and i can't wait to find some time while the kiddos are in school to get cracking on some new projects. perhaps one from this book might be pushed to the top of the list. i mean hello i know i have 5 fabrics i can use...so i probably already have everything i need!
kathy is one talented lady, and i'm honored to be asked to talk about this book, and not to mention, to pet the book and to stare at it and to dream of fall when i get to sew again, because yup you got all 4 of the noisemakers are in school full time. i'm a little dumbfounded that i'll have 6 hours of the cat and the dog staring at me not knowing what to do with all the quiet. no worries, the sound of my whirring sewing machine will probably ease their discomfort. :)
okay so enough about me.
