In The Meadow.....by Barb Adams & Alma Allen of Blackbird Designs
These ladies always produce such beautiful designs & projects. There is nothing they do that I haven't fallen in love with at first flip of the page.
Beautiful Applique' & timeless designs.
You will find two quilts "Birdsong" & "Friends of a Feather" which are done using the same blocks but different fabric choices. It is so amazing how different they each look. I think this would be such fun to work together as an applique' group on.
There are 5 other projects featuring applique' & piecing. All the projects feature things you would expect to see in the meadow.
If you love birds, wild flowers, butterflies and a huge dose of charm, you will love this book!
Kim has authored a number of books, all equally inviting in format and content. I especially enjoyed "Quilts from Textured & Solids" and "Cozy Modern Quilts".
This book is an extension to her first "Cozy Modern Quilts" book. Again I loved the layout and clear instructions. The construction of each project in this book uses two simple shapes the Square & the Rectangle to construct each project.
She has used scrappy fabric selections to demonstrate that you can sew these with your stash. You will find Lap quilts, Wall quilts & Table runners. All easily adaptable to what ever size you are in need of. The fresh use of brighter more modern fabrics is a feast for the eyes. However each design could be reinvented with any fabric style choice.
There are 20 projects & the book is priced under $20 What a value....$1 per project!
This would make a great gift with a Fat 8th stack of starter fabrics.
Maybe a great group quilt along and fabric or block trade.
I am so excited about the possibilities. You will be too....give it a look!

Thanks everyone for a wonderfully exciting Blog Hop & Book Tour. It was so fun to hear from you about your favorite season & why. I think Spring & Fall were the winners.
Personally I am a Summer Girl all the way..... Born in California, (only lived there 5 months). I think when I took my first breath of salty, humid air, I was hooked & will forever be a CALIFORNIA Girl! (or anywhere in the world near the ocean. Yes I realize I live & have lived in a desert all my life!)
