I'm so excited that two quilt books I ordered were shipped sooner than originally promised. These two books were all the buzz on Twitter and Instagram during Spring Market which made me want my books even more!
I only had time to snap a few quick photos of the books before packing them away for our weekend getaway, so I am anxious to delve into them. I know I will be inspired and start making lists of new projects to make....like I don't have enough of those already.
These other recent quilt book purchases and magazines are also packed in my beach bag. Honestly, I won't mind a rain day or two this weekend ;-)
Those volunteers at the Alzheimer's Art Quilt Initiative were speedy at shipping my new mini quilt acquisitions. Both of them arrived today in the same package.
I have to show you the backs of these two quilts. They are just as pretty as the front.
Look how the colorful stitching shows up on the back! That alone is cool, but then notice how perfect Susan's stitches are! How does she do that with all the thread color changes?!
I love how Kathryn was inspired by the backing fabric to design her Mod Flower. This backing fabric is so fun as are her stitches. I am thrilled to add these two art quilts to my collection!
Now that I have typed this post (did you notice that this makes four in a row for me this week? It's been a while since that has happened.), I think I'll pull out one of my new quilt books!
Happy stitching......and reading!
