Special Delivery Quilts #2 with Patrick Lose — and a giveaway!

Lose book coverAttention, 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.

From a sweet giraffe to a bright array of stars, these patterns for pieced and appliquéd quilts offer something for everyone.

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!

    I’ve not heard of Patrick’s books before – what have I missed? They look fabulous. I’d love to make some for our family babes.

    I love to use a range of colors in a baby quilt, like all of the pastels or all primary colors. Babies make us happy, and they should have happy quilts, too!
