For my block of the month (top), I made one from the “planetarium” pattern in the book. Elizabeth made a whole quilt of these blocks, all in cheery sherbet colors and crisp white sashing.
My favorite quilt in the book might be “little leaves” (above). It is made up of blocks of, well, little leaves, in bright colors. So fresh and pretty.
The things I like about Elizabeth’s books:
She includes alternate suggestions with each project. It is fun to see the quilts in different colors and settings.
She also includes photos of the backs of the quilts, which she makes just as pretty as the front.
She has perfect taste in colors and fabrics and all the projects appeal to both a traditional and modern quilter, which I consider myself both!
If you don’t already have this book in your quilting library, I recommend you check it out from your library or use one of your big store coupons to get a copy.
My friend, Lilly, came over to supervise the photography of this post. I hope you have a quilting buddy who is just as sweet (maybe less drooly, though).
