75 Fun Fat Quarter Quilts book {blog tour and giveaway!}

I have some exciting news!  I was a contributor to a new book called 75 Fun Fat Quarter Quilts.

75 Fun Fat-Quarter Quilts is an great collaboration book.  The premise of this book was to create a fast and fun quilt block that you could then change up in various ways to create numerous different styles of quilts.  So, from the original 13 quilts, enough variations were created to result in 75 quilt designs total!!

Below is my original quilt design, Tango.  The modern layout of this block reminds me of dance steps (hence the name!).

Tango

The book includes a total of seven variations with this quilt block.  A couple of my favorites include the Alternating Blocks layout:

The Rainbow:

And the Optical Illusion:
