What Was I Thinking?

DH and I wandered into a "new to us" bookstore today - mainly to check out the restaurant upstairs. As we were leaving, we wandered through the Language section to look for some Irish resources (I'm taking a class at a local pub). From there - it was just a step over to the Crafts section - so of course I couldn't help but check out the Quilting shelves.

I came away with not one, but *two* books on quilting - "Collaborative Quilting" and "Freddy & Gwen Collaborate Again". I have come across quilts on several blogs that were inspired by Freddy Moran and Gwen Marston, so I was excited to actually find these books myself to add to my library.

Now - to find the courage to try some of the incredible blocks showcased in these books...

Those are two of my absolute favorite books. So inspiring! Don't worry about trying their blocks. They are so wonky that you can't go wrong. I have made several quilts using their ideas and am very happy with all of them.

I think you'll love these books! They inspire you to design your own creations, they make it fun! The "parts department" is particularly helpful when doing round robins, too.
