Quilt market is just a couple of weeks away, and that means I've been working on some market sewing this week! With not much quilty goodness I can share just yet, I thought I'd share a new to me quilting book. Quilting those Flirty '30s is one of those books that has both amazing photos and quilts that you'll want to make right away. I always consider a book worth buying if there are at least 3 projects I want to make...and this one has 8 that I love!
There is just something about the 30's reproduction fabrics featured in this book...they just say "happy." I also can't help thinking how fun these designs would be made up in some modern fabrics...
I absolutely love the vintage applique' potholders (these are already on the list for a few Christmas gifts to give), the table runner and apron is this grouping. There are also four quilts and wallhangings that I really love and want to make. If you love applique' and reproduction fabrics, you'll want this book on the shelf too!
Okay, well...it's back to sewing for me. I do have a fun project I need to get finished up this weekend that I'll be able to share very soon...thanks so much for stopping by!
