I’ve been wanting to share some books, old and new, that I’ve enjoyed reading over the last couple of months. Each one of these books has been an inspiration and is a source of several projects on my list.
I’ll start with one I just received–Not Your Grandmother’s Quilt: An Applique Twist on Traditional Pieced Blocks. This book is written by Sheri Howard, and Sheri was so wonderful as to give away several copies on her blog. I have to say I love every quilt in this book…simple piecing combined with delightful applique’ adds up to wonderful projects! Sheri also includes a beautiful quote (I love quotes!) and a recipe with each quilt. The book is filled with gorgeous photography which includes beautiful vintage accessories and settings as well…this book is a “must have” for quilters!
