Attention Fons & Porter Fans! We’ve added two books to our Best of Fons & Porter book series. I know you remember the Fons & Porter Love of Quilting magazine. How many of you wish you could find some of those patterns again? Well, now you can! Both of our new books showcase patterns from the pages of that beloved publication for every skill level, including bright seasonal designs, and some of Fons & Porters trademark Sew Easy lessons.
Fons & Porter: Tabletop Top Quilts features 34 small, quick-to-finish little quilts and accessories with designs for every season of the year. Their adorable Chicken Dance table topper would take your dining room all the way through Spring and into Summer! Those chicks would look pretty cute on your Easter table, too!
If you’re thinking green in preparation of Earth Day in April, you’re going to want Fons & Porter: Scrap Quilts. What more eco-conscious way to use up your scrap fabrics than to make one or more of the 31 patchwork and appliqué quilt projects in this book? Just imagine the floral fabrics you could pull out of your scrap bag to create their Lotsa Potsa Flowers quilt and truly bring Spring into the house!
You can enjoy your favorite seasons all throughout the year thanks to Tracy MacKay, aka Dandelion Mama, and her new book—Seasons and Reasons to Celebrate. Her scrap-friendly wall hangings (including one that celebrates all 12 months) are fun to make with easy piecing, fusible appliqués (animals, flowers, and trees), and highlighted with embroidery. I’m loving the bunny in The March Hare design! Too cute!
Fresh Impressions by Allison Jane Smith feels very springy to me with its 6 contemporary quilt patterns. Showcasing designs like the Chevron Stripe quilt shown above and the Gardenia Bud (shown on the front cover), this book’s bound to help quilters bring a little sunshine into their décor.
