Thank you, Yvonne!

When Cut and Shuffle Quilts first came out, I asked Yvonne at Quilting Jetgirl if she would review it on her blog. I was thrilled when she said yes! I got to know Yvonne through the 2014 New Quilt Bloggers, and we've kept in touch ever since.

Yvonne not only reviewed my book, she made an actual finished quilt from it! You can read her post about Cut and Shuffle Quilts here.

Yvonne is super talented and she's known for her work with transparency. (In fact, one of her transparency quilts is in the running for the cover of QuiltCon Magazine.) She chose the Alternate Four Corners block using the Block Mama method from my book, and made this:
So pretty, and so Yvonne, using her favorite blues. I love it! Her quilting is awesome, too:
Yvonne speaks highly of her experience using the instructions and patterns in Cut and Shuffle Quilts. I'm glad to hear that the writing, block method, and patterns are user friendly.
Thank you, Yvonne, for such a wonderful post to help promote my book. Your Alternate Four Corners quilt is lovely, especially with all that dense quilting giving it such inviting texture. 
Cut and Shuffle Quilts is available from me (leave a comment) or from AQS or Amazon.
Linking up with Whoop Whoop Friday over at Confessions of a Fabric Addict.


  1. Making the quilt from your book was fun and I really love the ingenuity of your method, Jan! It was my pleasure to make a quilt and review your book. :)

  2. Congratulations on the book! Yvonne's quilt is beautiful :) From what she wrote in her post, it sounds like a fun way to make a complex-looking quilt.

  3. Congratulations on the book! Yvonne's quilt sure is lovely. Isn't it awesome to see the versions people make with your patterns? I haven't seen many from my book yet, but it's truly the best compliment when I do stumble over one.

  4. Yvonne's quilt did turn out great! And I loved thumbing through your book.

  5. It's always fun to see how different people interpret a pattern. Congrats on the book.
