For only $9.99 you get 29 patterns and projects – double the number of patterns in most quilt books for less than half the price – plus all the extras you’ve come to expect from Quilters Newsletter, like Designer’s Tips to help build your sewing proficiency and more insights from modern quilters.

Today’s first stop on the blog tour is 3 a.m. Inspirations, where Karen Gibbs talks about happy diversions from what she’s supposed to be doing and shows off her latest quilt projects. Her quilt Adirondacks combines quick corners, log cabin-style piecing, strip piecing and a unique block layout – something for everyone! Karen used Anthology Fabric’s Solid Batiks for Adirondacks.
