There are several new books that have recently been released – or arriving shortly. Here are some of my favorites….
When I travel and teach, many quilters are hesitant about color – and choosing fabrics for their quilts. “Colorific” has excellent lessons that are easy to read and easy to translate into your current projects.
Item #10853 Retail $23.95
The projects and quilts feature the colors that are popular NOW – like poison green! These quilts are striking – and in color combinations that I would not have necessarily considered. Look how the poison green makes the black and red pop in this quilt!
Each block in this quilt is its own study in color.
The blue pieced border adds the jazz to this quilt. This is NOT your usual book on color – and may help you put together kits in a whole new way!
Heather Pederson loves to work with angles and has followed up the success of her book based on 60 degree angles with a book on 45 degree angles!
Item #ANK306 Retail $17.00
Cut diamonds, trees, kaleidoscopes, tumblers all with 45 degree angles! Fast, fun and easy!
Brenda Henning continues her Strip Therapy series with #11.
Item #BPP610 Retail $20.00
Look at these quilts – made with 2 1/2″ strips – but each has a more modern touch!
Sue Spargo’s quilts are simply amazing – and the way she embellishes her wool appliques is spectacular. She has a new book that showcases her own style which adds dramatic texture to all of her work. This book is a must for any quilting library. She shares 50 of her favorite stitches – and since I only know about five, I have a LOT to learn!
Item #SS67 Retail $32.00
Have these newest additions available for summer sales, demonstrations, and shop hops. Your customers will be glad that you did!
