My very recent purchase
I have been on quilt books and fabric diet for a quite some time already, so this one was the one that busted it! I figured I need a refresh to my quilt books collections, and I was getting bored with the one I had. Besides, I love Sampler Quilts so much to pass this one up! I have made the first two blocks and it is soo much fun to piece this 6″ inch blocks.
With this book, you can also join over 27 K others at The Splendid Sampler facebook group sewing along with dearest Pat and Jane. I have my two blocks made and loving the 6″ block! If you are an international like me – you might want to get the combo kindle-book version to catch up faster. Otherwise just get the kindle version if you are the minimalist type and don’t like a physical book.
If you want to join in the fun – make sure to sign up for The Splendid Sampler facebook group and buy the book – it is currently on sale at amazon for less than $20!
Here are the ones that are one my way!
I am anticipating to welcome the following books in the next few weeks or month. Two of these are from Aussie quilty friends that I have been admiring and following closely ever since I got into quilting.
First is from Sharon of Lillabelle Lane – I love the variety of quilts and colours used in Sharon’s work and love to scroll down her IG feed! She is one productive quilter for sure, but one of the things she love to do is English Paper Piecing! I have been following her growth of for the love of EPP since her amazing La Passaglia quilt which she made with Tula Pink’s fabrics.. jaw dropping amazing!
When I heard that she is coming out with a book of EPP – my head just blows. When did she get to do all these secret sewing while having amazing feed with all kind of quilty projects?? I have no idea, but all I know she’ll keep inspiring us all with her amazing work.
I am looking forward to receiving this one as there will be a blog hop upon the launch and I’ll be in it. Watch out for that.
Now, here is another one I can’t wait to get my hands on. I love fussy cutting, you can see some of my fussy cutting work here, here and here. So, when I heard that Angie wrote a book about it, I gotta be in the club. Besides, the cover is too rainbowy to pass. You know I love rainbows of colours!
Another interesting thing is, that this book does not only cover english paper piecing which often relates to fussy cutting. I love the idea of having all kinds of piecing technique in a book and in Angie’s book, she covers fussy cutting with various piecing technique. That’ll be fun to learn!
Modern Triangle Quilts by Rebecca Bryan
This one has caught my attention lately due to pinterest images popping up and the bright colour used for the quilts in this book is just amazing! I love that this book has 11 Sampler Quilts. ooo.. I just love sampler quilt. You can even look in the book via amazon link, and the ones shown is pretty amazing I’d say. I can’t wait to receive mine in the mail.. can’t wait to start making some triangle sampler quilt.
Here are the quilt books that are on my wishlist.
Let me know if you have one of these and what you think of them, so I can make a choice for future buy.
Weekend Quilting by Jemima Flendt
Jemima blog at Tied with A Ribbon and she makes the cutest stuff. This is her first book and there are showcase hop going on right now, and I am enjoying all the makes from that showcase hop! Looks like a very fun book to have. I particularly love the flower applique. Need to try that soon!
No Scrap left behind by Amanda Jean
I love scrappy quilts and Amanda make beautiful modern looking scrappy quilts. I have her previous book with Cheryl Arkison “The Sunday Morning Quilt” and loved it. My sister made the following mini quilt out of my binding lefover triangles shapes scraps using one of the pattern in that book. So, am hoping for something similar, something to bust my growing scraps.
Fussy Cut Sampler by Nichole Ramirez and Elisabeth Woo
I am a follower of Elizabeth on Instagram and have always loved her work. Her fussy cutting projects are always fun and cute to see, so this book is a whole sampler dedicated to fussy cutting. I especially love the white book background of the book – looking pretty exclusive and suits as the coffee table book too I suppose. Nicole’s Intagram is here.
Scrappy Firework Quilts by Edyta Sitar
If you have been following my pinterest boards, I have a collection of antique quilts on their own dedicated board. Edyta Sitar’s work is one of those replication of antique quilts. In fact, in her book Handful of Scraps, which I have and love, she has a collection of these antique quilts at the beginning of the book to just drool over. This is not a new book, but definitely one to add to my library collection.
So, what’s on your quilt book wishlist? Let me know in the comment!
