The It's Okay If You Sit on My Quilt Book

The It's Okay If You Sit on My Quilt BookThe It's Okay If You Sit on My Quilt Book by Mary Ellen Hopkins
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

When Mary Ellen Hopkins wrote this book years ago it was a brand new technique that people took classes to learn. Now it is the backbone of quilting. The premise was that quilts that were made with this simple technique using the rotary cutter and an easy way of stacking blocks would take much less time to make so that people could feel comfortable using the quilts instead of putting them in the guest room bed where people could look, but not touch.

Well, it worked and quilters found that they could make 20 or more quilts per year instead of just 1. It also meant that quilters could be free to try trendy colors or fabrics and make quilts for kids, whose taste changes from year to year and babies who tend to drag favorite quilts all over and love them to shreds. If you only have one quilting book, then this is a good one to pick.
