    Today I went to a few quilt stores to check out after Christmas sale!!!!! Ran into some friends while at another shop they suggested I check out this shop called Goin Quilting bought a few Fat Q's and a few pieces of Christmas fabric. My best buy was a new book I found called Cut and Fold Quilting by Carol Nartowicz's. Hope to make one of the quilts when I learn the technique.

    I have that book too. Love to rifle through it but the pattern method looks a bit intimidating.

    That looks like a very interesting book. I especially like the pattern that you picked out and would love to know more about the process. I seem to keep acquiring books and adding to the list of things that I want to make.

    My recent purchase was a book on quilts using a serger (my MIL gave me a wonderful serger that I haven't tried yet) and a book about applique that looks really good. At least I enjoy looking at them and maybe getting ideas. I'd have to quit work to get everything done and that isn't going to happen right now. :mrgreen:

    The technique is really easy. I hope you have as much fun making this quilt as I had designing the pattern. Have fun using it on other projects. A friend used the technique to make purses. Enjoy and thanks for the blog, they are fun to read. If you have any questions - [email protected] Thanks again, Carol Nartowicz

    Carol, are there any tutorials or a video about this method? Before I buy the book I'd like to see what it entails. I have a vision of Freezer paper piecing which is probably all wrong. Love the quilt you designed!

    I have come close a few times to getting that book and chickened out. I don't care for raw edge anything and it looked like there would be a ton of raw edges.. granted.. I didn't look through the book long at Hobby Lobby but I tell you what - I keep picking it up and putting it down.

    I'd love to see one that someone has made from it!

    I really like that the author responded to this post. Most would not. That is enough for me to buy the book and see what it is all about.

    Let me break it down for you. Fuse together 2 pieces of fabric, wrong sides together. Draw the pattern on freezer paper and iron it to the fabric. Cut out the pattern with a craft knife. Bend back the cutouts and press open.Lay a third piece of fabric underneath. Straight stitch ( or in one case, zig zag stitch) down around the cutouts. It's all flat stitching. You get different patterns depending on which fabric you put on top. Hope this helps.

    Thanks, Carol, for the explanation. I'll have to look for your book.
