New Books We Love!!

 Among the new books we love is 3 Times the Charm by Me & My Sister Designs, Barbara Groves and Mary Jacobson and published by Leisure Arts.  If you need quick, fresh quilt designs, this little book has seven of the quickest, prettiest quilts you can imagine.
 Another new one is Cozy Modern Quilts by Kim Schaefer featuring 23 easy pieced but dynamic and modern quilts.  We've had several customers bring this book in to coordinate fabrics for one of the designs and we loved the quilts so much, we had to order a few copies for the shop.
 And last year, we absolutely loved the book 'Tis the Season Quilts and Other Comforts by Jeanne Large and Shelley Wicks of The Quilt Patch in Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan, Canada.  Jody had so many pink, red, ecru, and brown scraps and has a 'thing' for black in a quilt, she had to make the quilt they call "Vintage Cherries" and we made the "Holiday Stars Pillow" with strips of red's and a pretty green holiday swirl fabric.  This year, we'll probably have to work on a few more projects from this book!

 Vintage Cherries using up brown, red, ecru and pink scraps paired with solid black!

The fused applique stars with blanket stitch around them, extra-wide red ric rac and metallic star buttons make this pillow whimsical and eye-catching.
