Favorite Quilt Books – Good Summer Reading

While we are all drawn to certain patterns, and have our favorite quilt designers,  quilt books can offer a little more…. or a lot more!   Most books have several patterns for quilts, with options for different sizes for each pattern.   The designer will usually offer tips and insights for easier construction or color combinations.  If you will find yourself with a little spare time but can’t get into your sewing room, perusing a quilt book is the next best thing.

Summertime by Black Mountain Quilts features mainly quick, easy to construct summery quilts.  Many large pieces give you an opportunity to show off your favorite fabrics.
