Fabulous book. Great quick and easy patterns!
My first and only jelly roll quilt book. I've been quilting for 30 years. I love the patterns. And am making "Double Date" for my granddaughter. I find the pattern descriptions to be abbreviated and lacking. Came to this website because the book said for additional help go to the website. I didn't find any help on this website for the specific pattern. I rate the book - a zero.

Hi Fran, we're so sorry to hear about your frustration. Please give us a call at 1-800-426-3126 and we'll be happy to help with the pattern you have questions about. --Martingale Customer Service
This is one fabulous book. I'd seen it promoted on Martingale last year and when I saw the quilts, I knew I had to have this book. It is one of very few books in my quilting collection in which I LOVE every quilt. If Susan writes another book I will have to buy it- although I don't know how she could surpass this book!

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.
