Stay Tuned for Book Review Tuesday

In my first of year of quilting, I have discovered two things I enjoy buying – Fabric + Quilting and Design Books. I will admit, I have a little addiction to both….who doesn’t, right :-).

I would love the opportunity to share the quilting books I have been reading and trying out. So, every two weeks, on Tuesday, I am going to do a book review and share projects, blocks or ideas from the book. Β I am going to try this out for one year, and if you all enjoy it, we can keep it going.

Oh, and the BIG NEWS….In conjunction with the review, I will have a give-away for that particular book each week.

What do you think? Do you like the idea? What would you like to see first?

I have so many ideas, we can try through-out the year, to make this fun all round. For example:

  • Choosing a book, one month, and do a link-up for a project from that book (like a book club fashion).
  • Having different folks host a review (the give-away would be covered).
  • Possibilities for blog hops highlighting projects from the selected book.
  • Maybe a “Guess Who” where clues are given, project is shown but the book is not shared (mystery book) until announcement of the give-away winner.

I am starting the event next week. I hope you will come back, participate and enjoy the experience as much as I do.

A disclaimer, all reviews and opinions of the books reviewed will be mine, unless otherwise stated.

    This seems like an interesting idea πŸ˜€ I wish I’d use the books I have more often than I do, but I finally wised up and mostly quit buying books because I just don’t use them. (They sure are nice to look at though, aren’t they?) I’ve started taking them out from the library first, and then buying them only if I really really love them.

    I’m like you, I have an addiction to fabric and books. But I hate it when I buy a quilt book I’m disappointed with cause I think I could’ve bought fabric with it! This sounds like fun and will help narrow down what books might be right for me πŸ™‚

    Great idea, looking forward to follow your project (and maybe not buy so many books as I do). I competent review and some snapshots can help to find the “right” book!

      Great – that was the goal. You never know until you buy right and crack open those pages πŸ™‚ Please provide feedback as we go and I will ensure to include your feedback.

    Oooh fun! I love books too. I’ve got my eye on that new 500 quilt blocks. And I pre-ordered Vintage Quilt Revival. And if you need a Sarah Fielke review I’m your girl. πŸ™‚ I celebrate the entire Sarah Fielke collection.

    Wonderful idea. I love craft books too, but it is useful to know which ones are really worth having. My favourite quilting book is Sunday Morning quilts because I love scrappy quilts.

      It is one of my favorite books that I am doing my version of one of the quilts. I will probably use as a review and show that finished project sometime in the new year πŸ™‚

    Yay! Your book collection is fantastic. I’m excited to see what you recommend. It’ll be nice to see other comments here, too – I hope everyone chimes in when you review a book.
