A great new book if you love antique quilts like I do! I love that the book has quilt history as well as diary entries, very fun to read! AND yes of course it has great quilt patterns in it!
Home on the Plains:Quilts and the Sod House Experience by Kathleen L Moore and Stephanie Grace Whitson
just a sneak peak...one of my favorite quilts, don't you just LOVE this border????? and of course that green fabric I need to track down some of that color!
check this book out I am sure you will want to add this to your library.
I finished the binding on my little quilt from the Simply Charming book, I am thrilled with it, i am pleased with how my friend Lorre quilted it for me, the clamshells add so much texture to this little quilt.
I was inspired by Lori's quilt to start my own, I played around with the size of the blocks and decided I liked this size the best,
this will be made from my scrap basket and as I cut for other quilts. Long term project I think!
one more thing A new blogger that I am really enjoying reading Dawn , she loves reproduction fabrics and antique quilts like I do! I look forward to her posts! I hope you will enjoy visiting her too. Collector with a needle is the name of her blog.
