Little Bits Quilting Bee blog tour

Today is my stop on the Little Bits Quilting Bee blog tour!

First off, this might seem odd, but I have to just comment on the actual physical feel of this book. It’s hardcover and has a pocket on the inside holding all of the templates you need for the included patterns. it’s just a solid, pretty book. Rare to come across a hardcover quilting book like this and I have to say, I really like it.

The focus of the book is patterns to use precuts with. Now if you read my blog and keep up with my quilting, you’ll know that I simply never use precuts. That said, any and all of these patterns can be used with your stash – either yardage or scraps!

There’s also 20 pattern in the book – a lot! There’s definitely something for everyone considering just how many patterns are included.

The book also contains loads of important info – all you need to know to make a quilt and so many resources and references as well. Along with being super informative, if I had to use one adjective for the book, it would be cozy. There’s just something about the photography and the great hand drawn illustrations that make reading the book a comfy way to spend some time!
