Evidently this week I have been engrossed in
what is new and fabulous in the quilting world
Before the week ends I have a couple more things to share
about books that are hot off the press!
Starting with this one:
I have a great love of historical quilts.
Civil War Remembered is an
amazing and inspiring book!
or at Amazon if you are interested in a copy of it.
There are 19 projects in the book.
I am sure that you are familiar with the Country Threads
Mary Etherington and Connie Tesene.
In this book they present
a fresh assortment of distinctive designs.
The quilts range in various sizes...
including small dolly quilts.

And every one of them is gorgeous!
This book is so well written and
there isn't a project that I don't want to make!
I haven't gone traditional
in my quilting repertoire in a long time...
but I know I have lots of these fabrics
stashed away waiting for the right pattern...
and in this case... BOOK.
The authors, Mary and Connie, have made beautiful scrappy quilts
in stunning vintage colors.
The quilt below is the only quilt in the book that has
applique... and it's just a small amount on the handle.
You can see these photos and more
at the Chicken Scratch blog!
And check out what they did to the little
dolly quilts to make them look "authentic".

Cute school house quilt, right?

So many possibilities...
