Little Bits Quilting Bee is all about using fabric precuts to create quilts. As a rule of thumb, I am generally not a big fan of using precuts, I usually end up feeling limited or that I can't create something unique looking. But! The quilts in this book? You'd be hard pressed to guess from the photos that they were made from precuts, love that! There are TWENTY quilt patterns in this book, organized by fabric cut. In addition there is a rather extensive section on community quilting (quilting bees!), supplies, basic quilt making, and caring for your quilts. I usually skip the first part of quilting books, now that I know how to put a basic quilt together, but I enjoyed Kathreen's thoughts on the basics as well as community quilting!
Single Girl Quilt, you'll know curves and I don't get along. But, I was willing to give them another try. I settled on a block from the Sewing Circle Quilt.
Hope you enjoyed this little review! Chronicle Books is kindly allowing me to give a copy of this book away to one lucky reader!
