Welcome to my day on the Fresh Fat-Quarter Quilts Book Tour.  Fresh Fat-quarter Quilts is the new book by Andy Knowlton for Martingale, featuring 12 fat-quarter friendly quilts.

This book is beautifully presented with a great assortment of quilts to suit anyone. So if you have 6FQ or 14FQ sitting on your desk that you love but are not sure what to do with, I recommend that you take a look at this book.

To celebrate the release of Andy's book I decided to make the 'Penelope Quilt' using my Bonnie and Camille stash.

Once upon a time I would have not made a quilt with so many HST's but the laser light on my Brother machine (Innovis VQ3000) takes away the need to mark my HST. I can just pair my fabric and stitch! Add in some chain piecing and it all starts to come together rather quickly.

I have a navy Bonnie and Camille floral picked out for the binding.

I do apologise for the yellow photos but with a week of a sick Miss L, a washing machine giving up on me and now Miss K getting sick and then rain this afternoon, I have given up on an outside photo for the time being. Maybe I will try again after I quilt this one.

And .......... because a photo shoot can't happen in my house without a little photo bombing!

"Hello from Elly and Anakin."
