June Book of the Month

Here it is, June already! Time for grads (that's my son!), and Dad's. For me, another Book of the Month selection. I was fortunate last month to win a contest on Instagram, #smashyourprecutstashtakeover, sponsored by C&T Publishing. The prize was Smash Your Precut Stash! by Kate Carlson Colleran and Elizabeth Veit Balderrama.


Being a brand new book, I thought it a perfect fit for my Book of the Month feature, and so it is!

I've been so busy the last few weeks that I've only gotten to glance through the book, but now I need to get serious and make a choice. There's a jelly roll in my stash that's calling!

As for last month's book, T-Shirt Quilts Made Easy
I found it a great source of inspiration, both in design and technique. Ultimately, though, my friend's t-shirt quilts had their own voice (see a progress post here), and in an upcoming post, I'll go over how I planned and created those quilts. There's one quilt left to put together, so plenty to go over.

Until then,
Happy Quilting!
