I had the rare pleasure of going to the library without the kids this weekend. So I decided to peruse the craft section and see what I could find. Now I've requested specific quilt books from the library before, but never just looked through their shelves. I found some fun gems!
Some of these books are from the 80's, but they are still totally inspiring! And one reminder that as much as things change they still stay the same is the first page of Patchwork Portfolio (from 1989):
If you can't read that is says, "We often hear a distinction made between "traditional" quiltmakers and "contemporary" quiltmakers".... As soon as I saw that, I knew I had to check this book out! I've been flipping through these treasures all week and looking at the beautiful work. I would encourage you to see what you can find at your library too!!
And, as an enabler, I felt the need to share. If you have been wanting this Rowenta iron for a while (like I have) and keep waiting for it to go on sale at Joann's? Forget about it! It's at Bed Bath and Beyond for $39.99 ($10 cheaper than my Joanns) and don't forget those 20% off coupons!
