Little Apples Diamond Quilt

This darling quilt was created by one of our great teachers
also a former employee at Broadbent's.....
Kristin Barrus from
She just fell in love with the fabric when it came in
and had to create something from it.

The quilt was created as an inspiration piece.....but
it's so darn cute many of you want to recreate it.

Here are some simple instructions,  by no means a
pattern yet, but enough instruction that a confident
quilter could re-create it without too much trouble.

Ok....I think this book had me at the title

"Colorful Quilts for Fabric Lovers"

I admit I am a fabric lover.....
I don't buy for a project, I buy because I love
a particular piece and can't live without it.

I loved studying this book to learning some tricks
to turn my fabric into quilts.

Most of the quilts have a modern flair but they are
very adaptable to what ever you love.

Monday Book Club

Usually when I review a book there is a lot of reading through background information, introductions, explanations, etc. 

This book cuts to the chase and dives right into the projects.

10 different quilt projects, all have their origins in traditional quilts....
but the author has given them a modern fresh twist.

Each project has a simple, short and informative introduction and then off to
the business of cutting & sewing.

What I LOVE about this book:
1.)  The graphic, instructions & photos are so clear and detailed.
2.)  There are directions to make a crib, lap, twin & queen size for each project.
3.)  Most of the projects are in the beginner level and totally achievable.

I really think this is a book I will make each and every quilt once
(maybe even twice), it can be a great go to when I need a quick
darling baby quilt.  Give it a look!

Have you ever wanted to eat, shop, photograph, or QUILT....your way
through a country? 

I had my first craving to do just that after I read "Under the Tuscan Sun"
(which is much better as a book than a movie). 
I love the idea of totally exploring a new experience using all
my available senses. 
I think i just makes an experience so much richer.

My next experience was a trip to Europe where I suddenly found myself
sketching tile floors & photographing stained glass windows. 
Maybe some day they will make it into fabric creations.

"From Spain with Love" by Roberta Cardew
11 quilts celebrating Mediterranean color.....
brings Spain alive....The colors, the scenery, the foods are
captured within the pages of this quilt related book.

Beautiful Photos, great lessons in color, challenging projects,
and fun recipes to try.

I enjoyed reading about her quilting journey & was inspired to create!
I think you too will enjoy this beautifully done book.

I found it such a feast for the eyes & mind.

For those of you who are exploring the world of "Modern Quilting"...
We are on the look out for books that will give you inspiration
for that next project.
There are 6 different quilt designs.....all very achievable.
I think my favorites are the "Chevron Stripe" because I love
being able to use my scraps from my stash and adding in a little
something to pull it all together.  I also love the "Octagons"...
Any time you can sew straight seams and get the look of a circular
block is great in my book. 
The graphic and instructions are done very nicely.  The price point
on this book is under $15.00 which I think makes it a great value!
Give it a look!

This is just a quick little post about a super fun book....

Vintage Notions....By Amy Barickman

This book is an Inspirational, creative collection on needlework, cooking, sewing, fashion & Fun.  The book is inspired by Mary Brooks Picken during the 1920's-1930's.  She was a pioneer in the domestic arts.

I had so much fun reading through the nostalgic pages, stepping back in time when the domestic arts were cultivated by your everyday housewife.  Can I say I found it extremely charming!
Vintage Notions gives you a historic peek into the time period rather than being a project book.

I think you will enjoy it!
