Monday Book Club

The feature book for today is..... Drum Roll.....
Coming Home by Jo Morton

Just close your eyes and imagine the quilts with
names like Hickory Hill & Shenandoah...
There are very few designers who do
1800's reproduction like Jo Morton.

The projects in this book have a very classy
period look.  I wanted to make every one.
Take a looksie, I don't think you will be disappointed!

Monday Book Club

I must confess, I love vintage quilts....Heck I love
anything vintage.  Each wonderful treasure holds a
story all it's own.  Now if they could only speak!

Piecing The Past...
Vintage quilts recreated by Kansas Troubles

Is a collection of vintage quilts that have been
recreated so we can each make one for our very own.

The quilts are terrific and the history, stories &
other memorabilia are so charming.  You will
love reading the book as much as working
up one or all of the wonderful projects you
will find in this treasure of a quilt book.

Enjoy!!  I know I did...

Monday Book Club

This Monday we have a special treat!

Our feature book is "Hobo Quilts"
by Debra G. Henninger

I first heard about this book from a friend and work colleague.
She had seen the book while at Quilt Market in Minnesota.
I was so intrigued and charmed by the description she
gave of the book, I couldn't wait until it came to the shop.

Much like the quilt books about the Underground Railroad,
This book focuses on the secret clues & symbols of the
Depression Era American Hobo who set out riding the
rails searching for work.
I loved the historic photos, the interesting stories and......

Oh yes the quilt blocks!

It really opened my eyes to how hard times
were during the depression and the people who
risked everything to find work.

Loved this book!

Broadbent's is starting A "Hobo Quilt Club"...
Purchase the book + $20 per month for 6 months
That gets you 10 block kits each month.

Bring in your finished blocks and get..
25% off your sashing, borders & back.
(Regular retail price)

Your going to love it! 

Don't delay, we only cut 18 kits.

Monday Book Club

The choice for today is a little different....
I wouldn't exactly call it a book, more a
pattern.  But it's so darn cute!

I first saw this when I went to a super
great quilting retreat last February.

Halloween seemed so far away then,
Now I clicked my red heels 3 times &
summer is nearly over.

is just around the corner.

I just love the possibilities this pattern
offers.  Warm, cosy & a little bit vintage.

I don't think you can go wrong with
Blackbird Designs.......and

"Hallowe'en 1904"
