Monday Book club

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.

Monday Book Club

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!

Monday Book Club

These books are unique in that they promote a specific method of construction.
We have a few samples and kits of quilts done using the "Twister" tool.
The tool comes in two sizes & the books provide lots of inspiration!
