Book of the Month February 2014: Strip Savvy - GIVEAWAY CLOSED

It's time again for a new Book of the Month! Kate Henderson is here today to tell you a little bit about our February Book of the Month, Strip Savvy. We have a lot to show you AND a big giveaway, so sit right down and let's get started! And don't forget, the Book of the Month is 20% off all month!

Strip Savvy by Kate Henderson for Martingale at Fat Quarter Shop

Thanks Kimberly for the opportunity to tell you about my first book, Strip Savvy! I am so excited that The Fat Quarter Shop has made it their book of the month!

Strip Savvy by Kate Henderson for Martingale at Fat Quarter Shop

I love jelly rolls and I know that I am not alone. There is something so exciting about unrolling them and discovering the colors and patterns inside. With four young daughters, I often only have short bursts of time to sew in. I love to just grab a jelly roll and some background fabric and get to work.

Strip Savvy by Kate Henderson for Martingale at Fat Quarter Shop

I often use the left over fabric from my blocks to make borders for my quilts, so I have included some quilts with borders and some ideas for making borders from 2 1/2” strips.

Strip Savvy by Kate Henderson for Martingale at Fat Quarter Shop

I keep all the scraps of my favorite fabrics, so I have included some great scrap quilts so you can snuggle under your favorite fabrics instead of having them sit in plastic tubs.

Strip Savvy by Kate Henderson for Martingale at Fat Quarter Shop

There is something for every level quilter in here and a good range of different sized quilts. So grab the book, a jelly roll and start sewing. Don’t forget that The Fat Quarter Shop has Strip Savvy for 20% off all month long!
