Attention, Patrick Lose fans—Patrick has written another wonderful new book, and this time it’s all about baby quilts! Longtime Lose fans will remember his first baby quilt book, Special Delivery Quilts, which featured the phenomenally popular teddy bear quilt pattern called “I Love You This Much.” In this new book, you’ll find 10 adorable new quilt patterns PLUS that old favorite, brought back as a bonus.
As the Developmental Editor for three of Patrick’s books, I’ve had the pleasure of chatting with him over the course of time, during which his adored grandchildren—Lauryn, Lily, and Anna—were born. This book has special meaning for Patrick because of them, and when you see the quilts, you’ll see how much love and imagination went into creating them.
Make a simple and graphic pieced quilt like “Sawtooth Star Spectrum,” or combine piecing and appliqué to create a fun pictorial quilt like the go-to-sleep sheep in “Good Night, Sleep Tight.” Use fusible appliqué to create adorable animals and alphabets, moons and stars. All of these quilts go together without a fuss, thanks to crystal-clear illustrated instructions and full-size patterns. Who doesn’t love to make a baby quilt? And what better quilt to make than a “new classic” by this favorite designer and author, in your own favorite prints and colors!
