About the Author

Monique Dillard, of Rockford, Illinois, was born in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada. Her love of quilting was nurtured by relatives in Canada who taught her the art of handwork and sewing. She parlayed her degree in mathematics into a genuine understanding of the need for accurate 1/4 seams, squared blocks, and precise cutting. She was a regular teacher at her local quilt shop for 15 years until her budding quilt design business, Open Gate, steered her career toward a national audience. These days, you can find Monique teaching across the United States at quilt guilds, weekend retreats, and quilt shops. Monique's classes always fill up fast with fans from previous classes and students eager to learn from this talented designer.

This is the second book of Monique’s fat quarter books and it is as good as the first with 11 projects using fat quarters. In this book she used yard goods for the background fabric and fat quarters for the rest of the quilt fabric. The projects in this book have a very scrappy look, very easy piecing techniques and timeless in their look. So if you are tempted to stock up on fat quarters, stop by and get this book to help you put them together, with clear charts of fabrics needs along with different quilt size details in the same simple chart. In the basic instructions, there is a connecting the binding technique, that I have used for years, which is illustrated and wrote in very good detail. Try this technique! I really think this book is a good one for those who like lots of fabric in one quilt and who love to buy all the fat quarters they can find, easy for beginners. Add this one to your bookshelf.
