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.

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.Read more ›
