Well, 17 designers have given you plenty of little quilts to choose from. Fun-Size Quilts from Martingale includes 19 projects that all finish about the size of a fat quarter (18" x 22"). There really is something for everyone in this book from cute little four-patches and pinwheels to adorable animals and flowers to abstract designs.
The quilt I designed is called To-Do List and includes both appliqué and piecing. It was so much fun to design this sweet little quilt. I'm glad it is home now so I can hang it up in my sewing room to remind me that sometimes you just have to do what you have to do!
Two of my favorite quilts in the book are on the cover - Kimberly Jolly's Sunshine pinwheel quilt and Jeni Baker's adorable little foxes called Fox in a Box! Kimberly's choice to limit the color scheme and change the color of one block is so effective. Jeni's little foxes have me running for my scraps to choose the perfect fabrics for those adorable faces!
