Adding To The Library

By June 7, 2010March 31st, 2020Blog

As you may remember I bought this book recently. I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE IT!!!

Well my dear Hubby knows it is a dream of mine to go to Australia and take a class at Material Obsession. Since for the time being it will remain a dream he did the next best thing and got me this wonderful book. WEE!!! See me do the happy dance.

Then I had to get something for DD on Amazon and if I spent $25 the shipping was free. Well this book was the perfect amount to make the purchase $25. So I just had to get it. I know you understand.

So my quilting book library is happily growing. As is the list of quilts I want to be sewing. Oh what a wonderfully vicious cycle I’m in. You won’t hear me complaining.

    Lucky you!! I love new books -it's so much fun dreaming, even if a single quilt never gets made.

    I love buying quilt books on Amazon – always such a great deal. And I LOVE the ones you got! I don't have the Material Obsession Two book. I must remedy that 😉

    I understand Material Obsession II is now hard to get, so congrats. The first book intrigues me.

    Hi Em,
    I own the Freddy Moran book- I love her and Gwen's books- It is fun to read them and look at the pictures- the colors are rich and inspiring.. I also have Gwen's book Liberated Quilting.
    They just have such a great freeing attitude about quilting- It is nice to play once in a while and not worry about precision piecing. Don't get me wrong, I like precision things too but it is nice to explore different techniques.

    Enjoy your new books- it is always fun to read new ones too.
    Regards,
    Anna

    Fun! My mom works at a Michael's Crafts store, and every time I visit her and wander over by the quilting/sewing tools, I want to buy half (or all) the books they have! So many wonderful ideas!!
