Recently I was given another great book to check out and see what I thought. The book is called Quilt Big by Jemima Flendt.
This is a fun concept. You start with a basic quilt block, but enlarge it. And then you make a quilt using larger blocks which means the quilt goes together really fast!
It reminds me of my quilt, Medallion. Medallion is really just a big block!
Anyway, back to the book.
In the book, Jemima tells you how to upsize quilt blocks in Chapter 2. Then in Chapter 3 she gives you directions for a lot of different blocks that she has upsized.
Then in Chapter 4, she gives you lots of quilts to make from those blocks!
One I want to show you is A Churn Dash quilt. Love the Churn Dash block and it looks so modern and bright in these quilts.
The next is a quilt called Home Treasures. A big star! Love the quilt against the brick wall.
Another favorite block of mine is the Log Cabin and this quilt is just wonderful.
And then Simplex Star- a fun, pinwheel star that looks so easy and I just want it on my bed! It looks like summer to me. I do love my blues!
What do you think- they look like fun don’t they?
This might be book you want to grab for when you need a quilt and don’t have a ton of time.
