Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
A quartet of quilters started Fat Quarterly, an online magazine for quilters who respect tradition and support modernity. Although Bruecher hails from Germany, Jones and Greenberg from the U.K, and Adams from the U.S., the Internet allows them to form a bee as if living in neighboring hollows. In their colorful book, they exploit the guiding principle for their e-zine—sharing ideas and inspiration for creative projects with the wider, online community, but they focus their creativity on shapes, from squares and rectangles to circles and polygons. The patterns range nicely from simple nine patches (Jones’ “Book of Stamps”) to a complex octagonal horological background (Bruecher’s “Tickety Tock Clock”). Each pattern includes a list of materials and instructions with illustrations for cutting and assembly; many patterns, complete with templates, offer hints or background from the designer. Their colloquial writing suffers from mistakes in grammar as correctable as toe-catchers in quilting; jargon (“fussy cutting”) is defined in the section on quilting basics, which offers beginners’ instruction or experts’ refreshment.

From the Publisher
“The online magazine Fat Quarterly (FQ) is at the foreground of the booming modern quilting movement, and this first book from the publication's editorial team is a treat for quilters of all tastes. FQ's vision of modern quilting is about more than taking traditional blocks and making them wonky--it involves everything from fabric choice to design to the quilting itself. Organized by shapes, the book includes everything from simple squares and rectangles to elaborate polygons. VERDICT: The pieces range from full-size quilts to small projects to help quilters get their feet wet, and the projects are plentiful. An excellent purchase.” --Library Journal

Meet the Author

Fat Quarterly is a quarterly ezine written largely by a group of four authors: John Adams lives in Cary, NC; Katy Jones and Brioni Greenberg live in West Yorkshire, England; and Natasha Bruecher lives in Berlin, Germany. While each member of the group has a personal blog, they all work to maintain a popular site and blog for their ezine, both with a vibrant online community, and over 35,000 visits to their blog per month. They are each very active in the online quilt community, participate in functions of the Modern Quilt Guild, and regularly attend Quilt Market/Festivals as well as other international quilting shows.
