as I am, and still working on bow ties join up, today is 'quilty' but not new. This is a page of beginning to be more complicated triangles from the book.
Kathie is NJ(my dear friend *VBS*)asked if it was worth buying. Boy, that's a hard one! As a senior on the 'ole fixed income train' not if I had to pay the original AQS price(which I don't know) but guess it was in that $18-20 range. This book is from Hamilton BookSellers(see sidebar for link). Hamilton is a quilters dream come true!! Lots and lots of brand new quilt books at bargin basement prices. Their shipping is just incredibly reasonable, and many of the books are as low as $1.95,$2.95 and up. I'm thinking I paid either $2.95 or $3.50 for the Charm Quilts book. I didn't know the authors, but gambled on it being about One Patch.According to the back cover, there are 30 different charm patterns(cradle, picket fence, apple core and more) A dozen traditional quilt projects for all skill levels, and a feature is the "Beg and Borrow" Novelty quilts made with fabric swatches from textile companies.***Translation into 2007 speak: I Spy quilts *VBS*
This is one of the very, very simple doll quilts I made from 'leftovers' for the the day care.
A page of more complicated shapes, and I do find these interesting. Was thinking that a doll quilt from either one might be fun.
This is my second flower garden. I deliberately used fabrics that find less favor and acceptance, as do many children.It's easy to pick(and use)the pretty ones *S* I called it "In my Heart's Garden". The name came quite a long time after the quilt was finished, and is partly based on giving it to my oldest daughter's birth mother for her birthday. It is hand pieced and hand quilted, and now lives in Michigan. And before you ask, that's the other Mom in the picture..*VBS* We are close in age and in friendship. She is about 4 years younger than I am, and DD was not a teenager's baby. She is however, an only child for her birth mom, which doubles the blessing that she is to both of us.
A wee bit of progress today!
