Book Review and Giveaway: Fabulously Fast Quilts by Amy Smart


Have you ever wondered what shortcuts the quilting pros use to crank out hundreds of quilts a year? Okay, maybe not hundreds, but they do seem to make a lot, don’t they? Well today I’m so excited to share with you a book full of fast-quilting tricks to get the job done. And it’s written by one of my favorite bloggers… Amy Smart! She blogs over at Diary of A Quilter and I’ve featured several of her tutorials over on the front page of SewCanShe.

There are 12 quilt patterns in this book, divided into 4 categories that each teach you a time-saving quiltmaking skill.


When I browsed through, I couldn’t help but fall in love with Amy’s Modern Buzz Saw block. It looks tricky but it’s only a half square triangle! I won’t give away any more than that. 🙂 

You can see the Modern Buzz Saw Block that I made there on the right. I love it.

I’m also yearning to make this quilt if I ever get the chance. Right now I’m really a sucker for pops of red in a quilt.

So you you want to win a copy? Amy sent me 2 and I’m giving one away. Just leave a comment telling me which part of quiltmaking you enjoy the most. On Monday night June 23rd I’ll let pick a winner and notify her (or him, lol) by email so be sure to enter your email address. Good luck and happy quiliting!

***Update*** this giveaway has ended. The winner is Paula who wrote, ‘Choosing the fabrics and piecing are my favorite parts.’ Congrats Paula!
