Monday Book Club

In The 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!

Bright & Bold Cozy Modern Quilts by Kim Schaefer

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!
