Book of the Month: For the Love of a Nine Patch

Happy New Year! It’s time again for a new Book of the Month! Norma Whaley & Joyce Weeks of Geoff’s Mom Pattern Co are here today to tell you a little bit about our very first Book of the Month of 2013, For the Love of a Nine Patch! And don’t forget, the Book of the Month is 20% off all month!

We prefer traditional and folk art designs in our projects, and there is nothing more traditional than a nine-patch. It is timeless in its simplicity and can be used in oh so many ways. The book illustrates a few of the way in which a nine-patch can be used.

This is our first book and we chose to self publish. What an adventure that was! As to everything there is a learning curve. We started out by ordering 500 books and before Quilt Market in Houston was over we realized our expectations were exceeded. It was time to start the process all over again, so now we have plenty to meet our customer’s needs!

In the book you will find three large quilts, numerous table toppers and runners, pillows, a journal and a funky pin cushion. You will find many of our favorite inspirational quotes tucked in the pages of this book. Use your journal to keep a few of your own.
