I’ve mentioned Think Big on here a few times, but I haven’t had a chance to properly introduce you!

Think Big by Amy Ellis - AmysCreativeSide.comI had the pleasure of sharing this book with shop owners last week at Market, and loved explaining all the options that are available in this one book! Since writing Modern Basics, I’ve had lots of happy emails, usually with pictures attached, of finished quilts from my patterns. I’ve also had the occasional email, asking for help with recalculating fabric and block requirements to make it a different size than what I had listed in the book. I do help when I can, but it’s not always very timely.

When I started writing Think Big, I challenged myself to include details so that the quilter could make any size quilt that they desire. Not because I’m not willing to do the math again, but because I wanted to give my readers the tools to make their quilt the size they want!

So, you can make a single block for a pillow, 3-6 block runner depending on the length of your table or bed, baby, throw, twin, queen and king size quilts! Also include in Think Big are instructions for making a pillow with an envelope back or zipper, and the different options for finishing the edges of your pillow.

There’s 10 blocks, all 18″, and I can’t wait to see what everyone creates with the book! I hope it’s a great resource for quilters everywhere. Think Big is available for pre-order on Amazon, and in my shop, or you can sign up to be notified when it’s available on ShopMartingale, and Fat Quarter Shop.

What do you think? Ready to Think Big?

I hope so!
