About the Author

Nancy J. Martin has written numerous books on quiltmaking. She and her husband, Dan, founded Martingale, which is widely recognized as the foremost publisher in the quiltmaking industry.



We were saddened to hear of the passing of Judy Hopkins on March 9, 2011.



Judy was one of our most prolific and bestselling authors, having published 17 books between 1989 and 2011. Her collaboration with Nancy Martin, 101 Fabulous Rotary-Cut Quilts, has sold more than 131,000 copies. Her Around the Block series, which ultimately became 501 Rotary-Cut Quilt Blocks, was the design source for probably tens of thousands of quilts around the world. Judy was a major figure in the quilt industry for decades. She will be greatly missed.


To honor her memory, Judy's family is commemorating her work through a website and blog. Family, friends, and fans are welcome to post comments and share stories about Judy's quilts and the creativity she inspired. Visit JudyHopkinsQuilting.com.

If you look through this book and can't find dozens of quilts that you want to make right away, then you are too picky! I couldn't believe that I actually fell in love with most of the quilts in here. Usually when I buy a quilt book there are lots of patterns that I know I will never do. But with 101 quilts in this book, you will never run out of projects. I like how each one is rated a 1, 2, or 3 based on the difficulty level. And there are lots of instructions so even if you are new to quilting you will probably do just fine. Every project is shown in color, and the best part is that there ARE 101 quilts! The are all different, not just 10 quilts that are shown in 10 different color schemes to make 100 quilts. The best is the charm quilt - 1062 different fabrics are needed. Of course, you may not have enough fabric to make one but the picture in the book is beautiful to look at! Most of the quilts are easy to make with what you've got at home already.

I've been a quilter for about two years. I like to rotary cut, and machine piece and quilt my projects. I want things done quickly! I also prefer traditional quilts to the more modern style. If your quilting style is similar to mine - or if you're just getting started in the quilting world and looking for a style - you'll enjoy this book. Nancy J. Martin is my favorite writer on quilting. The quilts are beautiful, the instructions are clear and concise, AND there are color pictures of each quilt (that's my favorite part). The quilts are rated according to difficulty (but none are really THAT hard to make). The beginning of the book has a nice "basics" section and the book ends with a short section on finishing methods. I've got so many new ideas for quilts now - i'm off to the fabric store! Great book!

Format: Paperback
This is an excellent book and I'm very glad that I purchased it! It features a multitude of quilt patterns, some traditional and some more contemporary. The book shows a color photo of each quilt, and has complete and easy-to-follow rotary-cutting instructions for each project. Each quilt has a difficulty-rating, shown in terms of "spools" (i.e., one spool = beginner, two spools = intermediate, three spools = advanced) so that you can gauge if a particular project is within your range of skills before you begin. You will love seeing all of the many quilts that you can make with this book! Anyone who enjoys rotary-cutting and speed-piecing will LOVE using this book!

This is a great book for every level of quilter. The diagrams are easy to read and follow. I also found it quite easy to change colors to fit my personality and color schemes. My friends all borrow the book to find new projects and end up getting one for their own library. Great gift for beginning quilters!

I purchased this at the recommendation of a fellow quilter. As I read through the book, I found many projects I'd love to make! At present, I've used three of the designs in this book. The yardages have been accurate, and the instructions very clearly written. While many of the designs are suitable for the beginner, there are also designs that are more complex. Suggestions are made near the end of the book for machine or hand quilting patterns for each project. There are also instructions for hand tying your quilt, if you wish. All in all, I think this is a gem of a book (and a wonderful potential Christmas gift for the quilter on your list, too!)

Format: Paperback
True to its promise, this book shows off more than a hundred quilts which are designed for rotary cutters. You'll find a wide range of sizes and styles, from wall quilts to full bed quilts, and from traditional blocks to... well, traditional block variations. None of them are clinkers.

Many quilting books have designs that are all in one mood, even if they don't advertise themselves as such: very floral, or heavy on the "country," etc. Among the many things I like about 101 Fabulous Rotary-Cut Quilts is that it avoids this trap. You'll find everything from pastels to Amish designs to pinwheels. And, while plenty of the designs are scrap quilts, lots of them are NOT. (I'm a little tired of instructions that call for 1/8 yard from 32 different fabrics. Can I please make a quilt that uses only 3 or 4 fabrics?! But the point is that, even if you feel differently, you'll be as happy with the selection as I will.)

Plus, this book has some of the best quality instructions I've encountered. In most cases, the instructions all fit on one page, and they are blessedly straightforward.

The authors also recognize that not every quilter gets it right the first time; for example, the "Louisiana" wall quilt I'm just finishing advises, "Your blocks may not measure exactly 8.5 inches square when sewn. Cut this strip a little wider, and trim the sashing pieces to size after you piece the blocks, if you wish." I sure appreciate it when a book tells me how to fix the mistakes I'm most likely to make! (And why yes, I *did* trim the blocks afterward.)

One additional feature in this book that is much appreciated is the avoidance of the phrase, "Quilt as desired." I often feel that I need guidance on appropriate quilting patterns as much as I do on the piecing design.
