Another wonderful book published by Quiltmania, Quilts and Rugs, the photography always amazes me. I will let you know that 1/2 the patterns in the book are for hooked rugs and 1/2 are quilts. For me the quilts in the book was worth the price as I really wanted to make the quilt above Christmas Flowers, I love this quilt below as well. There are a few others I may make some day as well. The book actually costs less then most Quiltmania books too.Linda's blog Quilts in the Barn and on Laurie and Polly's blog Minnick and Simpson. DON"T be distracted by the beautiful red and white quilt she is hand quilting now, OH MY another must have!
Check out their Etsy page too she has a pattern for the flower of the quilt above in a kit for a pillow. There is also a kit for the quilt on the etsy page as well.
Dressing Gowns, 1800 prints by Judie Rothermel, these are just so cute and add a lot to my scrap quilts.
Do you live in Massachusetts???? If so is the quilting community active? What are your favorite quilt shops? Are there a lot of quilt shows each year? I have a friend moving to Mass. and I told her I would ask my readers. Of course she is interested in antique quilts as well , do you see a lot of quilts with reproduction fabrics at the shows? Thanks!
