I loved the patterns and the colors in this book in that it was not specifically made with "Christmas " fabric..However, I made the 'HoHoHo quilt' on page 40 and found that I had over a yard of each fabric left over (even with mistake/recuts). For some of us that quilt on a budget, this is the equivalent to the cost of the book or $25. I appreciate having plenty and not running short but felt this was excessive

Hi Mary, we performed a second math check on the fabric requirements for the Ho Ho Ho quilt and found little waste - is it possible that you were using fabric that was wider than 42"? When we figure yardage we do include a 10% allowance for shrinking/crooked fabric/straightening cuts. If you have further questions, please give us a call at 1-800-426-3126. --Martingale Customer Service

Susan Ache

Susan Ache is always searching for new ways to show off as many fabrics as she can in a quilt. The author of the best seller Start with Strips and of Countdown to Christmas, her work has been featured in several other books, including the best seller Moda All-Stars All in a Row, and in many magazines.

Susan finds color inspiration in her native Florida surroundings. Most of her quilts are a creative impulse inspired by a trip to the garden center, a photograph in a magazine, or a few paint color swatches. She never sees just the quilt, she sees the room where the quilt belongs.

Working in a quilt store for years helped cultivate Susan's love of color and fabric. Find Susan on Pinterest and Instagram as @yrdgrl60.
