Fun Stuff in the Mail Box

There is a quilt I had seen in a magazine that I really love - and found that it was designed by Barb Adams and Alma Allen of Blackbird designs. I found that it was in a book they had written and I also saw two more books (among others) that were theirs that I really liked. Decided to be really good to myself and ordered all three from Pickledish which is associated with the Kansas City Star. They came today and they are so great. I have one other book by the same authors that I purchased sometime ago on a quilt outing with the guild. Must confess I have done nothing from it - and further confess that I have quite a few other books I have done nothing from!! Doesn't that kind of go with our addiction to quilting?
This is the quilt I think is so cool. Will I ever get it done? Who knows - but I will enjoy thinking about it and looking through the lovely projects in my new purchases. I kind of look at things like this as "tranquilizers". And, PS, there were two quilt magazines in the mail, also. Don't know whether I'll get Red Delicious appliqued today or not.

Wow, that looks like a lot of work. Did you see on the internet the little video about the guy that can draw with 2 hands. Wow, just think if we could figure out how to quilt with 2 hands at the same time. The possibilities. Off for a few days to the cabin be home soon.

Three lovely books. I have my eye on When the Cold Wind Blows and I have Birds of a Feather. Love that book!
