A Great New Book

At Joann's again with a new coupon - stop and look at the books, naturally!  They have them in two different areas now - one over by the fabric and strictly quilt books and another elsewhere that features everything, along with quilting.  You can find knitting, crochet, scrapbooking, art quilts, etc., in that section.  There are a lot of them and some really good books, but it was so hard to look through them.  One section was entirely topsy-turvy with books standing, leaning against each other and in danger of falling when you pulled one out.  You also needed to cock your head to one side to try to read up the spine of the books.  Not too long ago, someone did a great job in getting it all together and now it is fairly easy to see what they have.  With the 40% off coupon, you can save a lot of money.  Of course, I am in danger of going broke sometime from all the money I have saved.   So I spotted the above book and leafed through it.

All of the little quilts are 16 x 24 so a great size for a wallhanging and for trying out many different layouts.  I can hardly wait to try some of these.   I can see them in brights, pastels, batiks, reproduction fabrics, there is no end.  And how easy they will be to quilt!
I think this one is so cute.  The little square in the squares could be paper pieced very easily.  I am calling this another Christmas present from myself to me.  Merry Christmas, Carol!  (Click to enlarge)

Great find, Carol. I will have to take my coupon there tomorrow if the snow isn't too thick and see what I can find. I need some more backs for quilt tops that are getting to the finished stage.
