This book review is for all of those quilters who collect Fat Quarters and other Pre-Cuts.  “Take 5 Fat Quarters” is written by Kathy Brown.  Gather up your scraps and get ready to “roll” your rotary cutters.

The above quilt on the book cover is a larger quilt using 2 sets of 5 fat quarters plus background fabric, so don’t be afraid that all the quilts in this book are small.  Also included in this book are detailed instructions on quilt making for the newer quilter, so this would be a good book for a newbie or a gift to a newbie quilter.

This next quilt would make a great starter quilt for a newbie, but I’m not a newbie quilter and I love it for its simplicity and cheerful colors.

Here’s a table runner that looks like it has log cabin blocks, but the author shows you a time-saving short-cut for creating this look.

But, I think this next one is my favorite. Given the name of the quilt pattern (T-Ball), I believe it’s supposed to look like T-shirts but my imagination says it also looks like kimonos.  Either way, it’s cute.

The patterns in this book use 5 fat quarters for quick and easy quilts, but many of them can also be made with Jelly Roll strips, so it’s a pretty handy book to have.  You can find out more about this book at Martingale’s website.
