The folks at Country Threads have put together my favorite kind of book. They have combined wonderful reproduction style quilts with stories of unsung heroines of the Civil War.
A little eye candy….
These stunning quilts are the icing on the cake of some great stories! Reach back in time and visit 14 heroines of the Civil War. Then, create an array of beautiful quilts inspired by the stories of these courageous women. From a simple string quilt to spectacular scrap quilts bursting with hundreds of fabrics, each project captures the look of antique quilts from the era. Authentic photos and true accounts of Civil War history will draw you right in!
I just love her stuff – and she is such a great marketer that she makes my life so easy! Her book Create with Cork is a must-have. It includes all of the tips and tricks that make sewing cork a breeze!
And now she has packaged the hardware for all of the projects in the book – in five finishes: gold, antique, silver, nickel, and rose gold.
That’s right – any of the hardware required to make all projects in the book. What a great series of classes!
The cork is pre-packaged in 15 x 18-inch pieces as well:
They can mix and match in class and have several gifts on hand! The book and cork are in stock now. The hardware is expected next week.

This new Block of the Month by Sherri Noel is written in chapters.
Each of the twelve chapter begins with a life affirming quote and is set off with blocks that all come together to create a charming 84 inch square quilt.
The pattern comes in two booklets – one for the pattern, the other for the techniques. What an opportunity to grow as a quilter while creating a work of art! Wouldn’t this be the perfect graduation gift? Or birthday gift to welcome someone into their teen years?
Or, make it for yourself – we all need a reminder sometimes to focus on the positive! This pattern is due to arrive next month so order it now and add it to your class schedule!
I love the whole concept for this book by Linda Collins and Leah Zieber.
The book description had me hooked: Follow this team of antique-quilt mavens as they share their search for quilts from the past. With decades of vintage-textiles knowledge between them, quilters will discover secrets about where to look for antique quilts, which quilts to snap up quickly (and which to walk away from), how to care for vintage quilts, and more. Next, pore over thirteen favorite antique quilts from the authors’ personal collections and find patterns for remaking true reproductions of them all. Delight in the fun photos of this duo’s treasure hunting in action–quilters everywhere will be inspired to join the hunt.
I can’t wait to make the double nine patch quilt on the cover!
This is a new book compilation by Lissa Alexander.
In their own words: “What happens when famed quilt designer Lissa Alexander invites her quilting heroines to create scrap quilts alongside her? Scrapalicious magic! Lissa reached out to celebrity ‘sister’ quilters from all walks of life and proposed a theme; then she and each designer made their own version of a quilt based on that theme. The result? Spectacular scrap quilts from true masters of the craft, and an invitation for all quilters to join the Sisterhood of Scraps! Create a dozen stunning quilts inspired by everything from simple squares to Trip Around the World designs (one assembled from a 34-year-old scrap stash!). Quilters can start a quilting bee, build a community, and bring new sisters into the fold as they make these stunning projects. Also inside is a Sisterhood of Scraps certificate that quilters can hang in their sewing space to show that they’re a proud member of the Sisterhood.”
This book is due out next week – and I can’t wait to join the sisterhood! I certainly have enough stash. How about you????
I love everything this gal does! And I can’t wait to get my hands on her latest – due the first week in February. Simple Patchwork is just that – all patchwork and no applique. Put the pedal to the metal and sew to your heart’s content.
Check out what we have to look forward to:
I love minis – and this one is so darn cute, I would love to make a full size quilt out of these babies!
This twist on a log cabin is striking – and the split star is just the icing on the cake!
One big block makes a stunning quilt. It has such a modern feel.
Simple piecing makes quick work of this stunning quilt!
Half-square triangles have never looked so good!
Don’t you love the way this entire quilt is framed in a giant churn dash block???
I love Triangles on a Roll – and now they have a new home! Its Sew Emma is now producing them in ten different sizes from 1 to 6 inches.
And in typical Its Sew Emma style, they support them with a wonderful book featuring sixteen different projects. Eight different sizes of half-square triangles are showcased.
