Precut Primer Blog Hop!!

Well it's the last day of the Precut Primer Blog Hop and that means we must be getting towards the end of of schooling!!    Here are some of the facts you need to know for the test :)  Precut Primer is written by the oh so amazing duo of Mary Jacobson and Barbara Groves from Me and My Sister Designs!!  These ladies are some of the sweetest and most amazing people you will ever meet, and I am so grateful to be able to call them friends!!


So when my dear friends Mary and Barbara asked if I would like to piece a quilt for their upcoming book earlier this year I was all over it!!!  And I was totally drawn to this amazing 11th Grade quilt that I get to share with you today!!!


 Isn't this just such a gorgeous design!!!  I love the way they turned the block on point, gives it a whole new look!!!   And the pattern and piecing process is super easy, so even though this is a large quilt, it goes together real fast!!


The 11st Grade quilt was hanging at Market so of course, I had to jump in and take a picture with it.  I really had so much fun making this quilt!!!  


And while I did the piecing of the quilt top, it was sent out to Sharon Elsberry to be quilted, and oh my oh my, did she do an absolutely stunning job!!!  Just gorgeous!!! 


And of course, I wanted to make something for the actual Blog Hop itself. I decided to make a mini of the single block, and you know if I am going to make a Mini, it is going to be purple!!!  Doesn't the block just look awesome as a mini as well.  I love that it even has a 3d effect to it!!


Doesn't it just look so cute at the end of my ironing board :)  A perfect addition the the purple mini wall!!  


Precut Primer is filled with 12 amazing projects that are all precut friendly.  Starting from this adorable 1st Grade Quilt that Barbara (my MIL) pieced using adorable Moda Candy up to the 11th and 12th Grade Quilts that use the Fat Quarters.  You can pop on over to Lissa's to see the 12th grade quilt today ;)  


And trust me when I say, each and every quilt is just as adorable as the next!!!  Really, there are some amazing designs and because they are all precut friendly, they go together super fast!!


A few final notes you will need for the test . . . Precut Primer is published by the awesome team of Its Sew Emma and can be found at the Fat Quarter Shop.   This would be an awesome go to book to have in your quilt library to help you use up all those precuts you have been hoarding ;)  


And to see all of the amazing quilt in Precut Primer, you can pop along all the hop stops.  Start your way in First Grade and work on up to Graduation!!!   I will be quilting my way through school for sure :)
