A Baker’s Dozen

Have you ever wondered what to do with 2 1/2 strips, charm packs or Layer Cakes?  Well, “A Baker’s Dozen, 13 quilts from jelly rolls, layer cakes, and more” is the book for you.  This delightful book was created by the staff at That Patchwork Place, and published by Martingale& Company.

This book contains something for everyone.  Yes, as they say, if you like sweets, or something more savory like rosemary-parmesan bread, this book is for you! 

There are 13 amazing projects, plus a bonus quilt.  Each design includes fabric requirements and excellent instructions and visuals to make beautiful quilts that range in size from 59″ x 83″ to 87 1/2″ x 107 1/2″.

Insights are also provided to help you select fabrics from your stash, if you choose, or buy pre-cut strips (aka Jelly Rolls, Charm Squares, or Layer Cakes).

There is also a delightful page that shares insights about the contributors to this book (team members from The Patchwork Place).  I’ve always known that this team is very talented, and it is delightful to see this book that this talented team has created. 
Thank you to Cassie Barden, Mary J. Burns, Leanne Clare, Claudia L’Heureaux Coie, Regina Girard, Mary V. Green, Virginia Lauth, Cathy Valentine Reitan,  Adrienne Smitke, Karen Costelio Soltys, and Chris Wright, along with the entire team at The Patchwork Place, for creating this delightful book. 
SewCalGal views this book as another “must have” for quilters of all levels.  It would also make a delightful gift!
Copies of this book are available for purchase from the online store at Martingale & Company.

  1. That Patchwork Place makes some great books. I interviewed there right out of college…I wish I would have gotten the job. That was one that I was actually disappointed at not getting.


  2. That looks a great book – much more inspiring patterns than some jellyroll books I’ve seen. Thanks for the review, I’ll put it on my list of “needs”, Lis x


  3. I really love some of those patterns! I love the one that looks like fish – I did that one using a slightly different pattern once with a batik blue in back of it that looked like water – this book likes like a great way to use up those strips.Karenhttp://karensquilting.com/blog/


  4. It’s fun to look at the pictures you posted and pick out the various designers. Looks like a great book to have and it will go on my wish list!! B/
