Low Closeout Price! 80 pages, 8 complete quilt patterns and 10 cookie and bar recipes (plus 1 nutty variation and 1 frosting recipe), published November, 2001. Cookies and quilts have long been associated with warmth and comfort, with reassurance and love. So it's only natural that Judy Martin bring these two icons of the happy American home together in one delicious book. Cookies 'n' Quilts has everything you need to make perfect quilts: color photos and illustrations, complete color-coded rotary cutting instructions, full-size templates, and quilting motifs. And because the patterns come from Judy Martin, you know they are completely accurate.
And now for something completely different... Monty Python did a sketch about the Royal Society for Putting Things on Top of Other Things. After designing the quilts for Cookies 'n' Quilts, Judy Martin feels like a charter member of that esteemed Society. All the quilts in the book superimpose one quilt pattern over another. Whether she is putting flowers over an Irish Chain or introducing a star into another star, she is combining traditional elements in unique and exciting ways.
"I Have a Dream" - Small Ohio Stars superimposed
on some of the large Ohio Stars. Dreamy indeed!
Q: How are cookies and quilts exactly alike? ... A: If you want to make the best you've ever made, you have to have the right recipe (or pattern.) Judy Martin wouldn't dare waste your time (and money) by giving you recipes for cookies that are merely good. She spent months experimenting with ingredients, thickness, temperature, baking time, and cooking utensils until she could say without reservation that these are the best cookies she has ever tasted. And she is certain you'll agree. With Judy's foolproof recipes you'll make delicious cookies that will have your family clamoring for more!
Now you can have your quilt and eat it, too! Or something like that.
Quilting as a social institution... Schedule quilting bees to make the gorgeous quilts in Cookies 'n' Quilts and then sample the desserts! Or sample the desserts and then make the quilts. But if you do it in that order, make sure everyone washes their hands before handling any fabric! Judy Martin believes strongly in the notion of quilting as a social institution. It's been that way for generations. Now, more than ever in our high-tech, high-speed, isolated-at-my-own-computer-in-my-own-cubicle world, we need the relaxation and comfort and community that quilting can offer.
