There are several new books which have just hit the shelves or that will be arriving soon that I can’t wait to get my hands on. For instance, who doesn’t love anything by Kathy Schmitz? Her new book of stitching designs is simply charming and celebrates my favorite time of year.
Carol Hopkins and Linda Koenig have joined forces to create 182 four x five-inch blocks – all you need to create an heirloom quality quilt with style. These rectangular blocks use a variety of techniques and would be a great class for those Dear Jane fans. Why not invite friends on this journey? They have included tips to help you set up your own block exchange or club. This book has 208 pages – a rarety these days – so be prepared to be inspired!
And then there is this coffee table book that is soon to be released by Martingale. American Quilt Treasures includes 65 stunning quilts from the permanent collection of the International Quilt Study Center & Museum. These historic quilts are simply breathtaking. This is scheduled for a Fall release so it would be the perfect holiday gift!
