Fabulously Fast Quilts

Fabulously Fast Quilts by Amy Smart was sent to me by Martingale to review. This book has 12 versatile designs and in this book you will find:

  • Great collection for beginners as well as experienced quilters
  •  Enjoy versatile designs that work well with many styles of fabric
  • Choose from three quilts in each of four shortcut categories
  • Great patterns in various sizes; many use precuts and scraps

I am always looking for ways to make quilt projects fast and this book has some great projects to do that! The book

is divided into 4 sections: Strip Piecing; Quick Corners; Slick Slicing; and Stack, Slice, and Shuffle. Each section takes a shortcut method and shows a few variations that can result for the technique.

Simple Simon gives the illusion of curves and floating squares.

Modern Buzz Saw is a traditional buzz saw block that is designed to work with 10″ squares and produces no waste!  Quick Puss in the Corner and Modern Buzz Saw are created with the Slice and Shuffle technique.

  1. My guild has added this book to our lending library. I had it last month and used it to make the blocks for "Square Deal" since I had a stack of FQs from Connecting Threads that I had never used. That is going to be one big quilt! At least by my standards it is. I've wanted to make a picnic quilt for quite some time and I think it will be perfect for that. I also think the Moroccan Tiles on the cover looks like a good option for a jelly roll of batiks. 😀
