Question: What is cooler than scoring a new craft book?

The book full of projects that are based around the use of fabric fat quarters. Fans of Melissa's blog will be delighted to find that the book reads much like her cosy & chatty blog. The projects are also very Melissa style too - whimsical and fun, but also practical.
Here follows a selection of my fave projects:
I'm not yet quilt initiated. Perhaps I don't have the time or patience, but this quilt looks utterly gorgeous and yet it's very simple to construct (so I'm in!) The clouds are such a cute and cheeky idea.
...Amy! Here is Amy getting it on with the Unicorn at Spring 2010 quilt Market.
OK, so I usually end my book reviews with a book giveaway. Not this time folks cos this hand delivered copy is allll mine. But fear not I will be hosting a giveaway of this book very soon. Watch this space :)
