Quilting Books In The House!!

My mother in law and I went into Raleigh this past weekend and with coupons in tow, I found myself searching out the book rack! I don't buy new books very often but this day I came away with 4!!!  WOW! Did I make up for lost time!

These days you usually find me over in the bead section feeding my cravings for anything related to crazy quilting.  But this day, I decided I would not go anywhere near a bead!  Guess what????  I made it out the door without even looking that way!  believe it or not! :)

The first book I purchased is Fat Quarter Quilting by Lori Smith.  There are 21 terrific 16" x 20" projects inside!  I bought this book with a mini swap in mind.  I made one of these quilts for my swap partner!  You will have to wait a few days to see the quilt until she receives it in the mail!
The next book is Country Comforts by Cheryl Wall.  I fell in love with the quilt on the cover and HAD to have this book!!  I have been known on more than one occasion to purchase a book for only one pattern in the whole book! And as soon as I saw this cover, I knew the book was going home with me!  And then I opened the book!!  YAY!!!  I made an awesome choice!  You will love what is inside this book!  Lots of great quilts to choose from!  And another Churn Dash!!! :)
Next up is A Passion for Piecing by Claudia Clark Myers. The adaptations to the Grandmothers Fan design in this book blew me away! You MUST see this book!
Last but certainly not least is More Retro Aprons by Cindy Taylor Oates.  My youngest daughter has been begging for an apron for a year!  This Christmas I am going to delight her with 2!!
So what are you waiting for?  get over to your local JoAnn's or your favorite quilt shop and check these books out!  You will be glad that you did!

Always love a new book - I swear I buy most of them just because of one picture! Those look great!
