So Close to Done!!

Here is a sneak peak at my daughters wedding quilt that was supposed to be done over a month ago!!  Better late than never I guess.  She had asked for a Wedding Ring Quilt, but that just didn't happen.  So I asked her what colours her and Jason liked and Blue was it!  A very blue quilt it is.  I was inspired by the quilt in the book called, 
Weekend Quilts and Projects by Barb Adams and Alma Allen.  The Quilt is called Lazy Morning.  I wasn't fond of the plain 14" squares and decided to do sashing and corner stones instead.  

Still not quite finished but I have worked my butt off on it today.  Hopefully in the next couple of days I will have it all finished and off to the quilters!!

Happy Stitching,

Book Junkie

Hi,  my name is Cindy and I am addicted to Quilting Books!
Seriously I have more books on quilting than the local "Indigo" I'm sure.  They are everywhere in my house, so whenever I sit down, wherever I sit down, I can glance through the glossy pages, even if its just for a moment.   Quilting books are great eye candy!

One of the more recent books I have purchased is Patchwork Among Friends by Judy Martin.  I have a few of her books but have never really sat down to read them, I have however always admired the beautiful quilts though.  This book I decided to read, starting at the beginning.  There is so much useful information, she covers everything from finger pressing to working with bias edges.  Two of my favourite patterns in this book are, Thanksgiving and Rolling Hills Log Cabin.  Maybe one day I will clear my WIP pile enough to make one of these beautiful quilts........a girl can dream :)  Do you have a "quilty" addiction?

Happy Stitching and I hope the sun is shining brightly in your part of the world, wherever it may be :)
