And you can imagine my surprise and glee when I opened the cover and found that no only was An Irish Braid in the book, but it is the Title Page!!!! Oh my goodness!!! I squealed out loud. Then I realized it was also the watermark on the Cover Page!!! Double Squeal!!! Then I had a moment of panic. Why, because well, this is the first quilt I ever quilted on a long arm, and the quilting in this picture shows up big time, and let's just say, I have learned a lot since this first quilt ;) But my husband calmed me down and reminded me that it wouldn't be here if it didn't show well. (Just promise me you won't look to closely at the quilting ;)
So ya, all in all, pretty amazing day when this arrived!!!! The Big Book of Strip Quilts is chuck full with 60 Beautiful quilts made by so many amazing and talented quilters!! And they are all done with strip piecing, so you know that means they go together fast and are a whole lot of fun!!! For sure an awesome book to have for burning through those stacks of Jelly Rolls (don't tell me I am the only one hoarding these and other pre-cuts :) or Scrappy Strips.
And to celebrate it's release, Martingale is giving away a copy of the The Big Book of Strip Quilts to one lucky winner!!! Be sure to pop on over to their Post to see lots more on this awesome book and enter the giveaway ;) Good Luck!!!
