New Books

First of all, I'd like to thank everyone who commented on our show. We are very happy to have everything set up. We put white fabric on some of the tables, changed one table for another set of the black boxes and re-arranged some of the pottery. Now the lights have been aimed at the work and it looks much better.
Meanwhile, I have been busy reading these three new books I got this week. Freddy and Gwen's books is as good as I expected, which is very, very good. I have been wanting the one about journal quilts for quite some time. It doesn't have instructions but lots of examples of wonderful journal quilts to inspire me to try out some new and different materials and techniques.
The third one gives very clear instructions on how to use different materials, many of which I have not tried. I'm going to be busy.

I have the top book. And like it. The others look interesting too. Especially the journal one.

I have the journal one. I loved reading about each quilter and the quilt. You will enjoy it. It is great to read during commercials when watching tv. Just hit the mute button and read one at a time.

I just got the second collaborative book in the mail this past week, too. I had pre-ordered it and didn't know exactly when it would arrive. So much fun!!!

I'm still not absolutely sure I want the new Collaborative book. I read the first one at Tonya's and it didn't grab me as much as I thought it would. Strange!
