Mary Lou Weidman & Melanie McFarland have a fun new book out!! The first time I saw Mary Lou was in 2000 at the Sisters Quilt Show. What a fun and personable woman. Her quilts were amazing and told such great stories. Although I don't make a lot of quilts like hers I was a fan instantly!! Here is my version of a story quilt I worked on for a year after seeing her in Sisters. This was a graduation quilt I made my daughter. You can read it about it on this blog post.
Look at a few of the wonderful projects.
These are fun, whimsical quilts that are not as complicated as they may first seem.
How sweet are these goofy cats?!!
Since I was asked by Mary Lou to review the book I wouldn't be honest if I didn't try the methods they give in the book.
I have to admit my letters need some work. Because there isn't actually measurements given I had a little problem. I needed a bit more contrast on my first letter too, but that is operator error. Can you read the word?

I give the book a big thumbs up!! If you'd like a chance to win a copy please leave a comment and I'll draw a name on Friday.
