As you know, teachers here started back to school last week, and students started this past Monday. Personally, I think it should be a crime for anyone to go back during the month of July, but nobody asks my opinion on these matters. ;) Well, after looking at school test scores, my principal decided to move me from 3rd grade to 5th, teaching Language Arts since I am a Reading Specialist. Of course that meant a 60 hour work week last week to move all of my things and prepare. I have to give a huge shout out to my hubby for taking off a couple of days of work to help me out! So, all of that is to say that I'm sorry to have missed the party last week!
Even though students started school on Monday and I'm still super-busy, today is my stop on the Fat Quarter Shop's blog book tour for their newest book, Fat Quarter Style. This books is chock-full of fun, modern patterns, and I can't wait to get a little more time to really make some of them.
I made a single block of the Tapestry pattern, and it is so lovely! The block is 20.5 inches, so it has a really bold look. I'm planning to add another border to this one and turn it into a preemie donation quilt.
I'm so excited to let you know that I have a second copy of Fat Quarter Style to give away to a very lucky reader! To enter the giveaway, just check out the Table of Contents of the book HERE and let me know which pattern in the book is your favorite. I'll announce the winner on Friday afternoon!
Edited- this giveaway has now closed. Thanks to all who entered! :)
