Quilted Gifts from Your Scraps & Stash book

I must admit, the cover of this book gets my attention — lots of pink and flowers. The book is just released and I haven’t seen it in a store yet, but I’ll buy it through our Amazon link.

Reviewing the book on Amazon, the Table of Contents includes sections for:

  • 5-Hour Favorites
  • 10-Hour Treats
  • 17-Hour Sensations
  • 24-Hour Treasures
  • Take Your Time

The projects are appropriate for baby showers, bridal showers, birthdays, house warmings, and more. I see coasters, an armchair chatelaine, a tote bag, a baby quilt, ruffled flowers … many items to choose from.

Each project includes Project Specifications, Materials, Cutting instructions, Completion steps, and pictures to illustrate the steps.

I see a few things I would like to make. How about you?

It’s a Wrap Bowls

Our own Carol Thomas is teaching a class at Luella’s in a few weeks on wrapping cotton clothesline to make bowls, baskets, and purses. I found another picture online using Bali fabrics in blue/green/purple to create some beautiful baskets. And an online store that carries a number of books and patterns using wrapped clothesline.

I hope all the attendees have a great time in Carol’s class, and please bring your finished items for Show ‘n Tell!

If you have a copy of this book and can bring it to the meeting for a quick look, please contact Eva, or reply to this post, or contact Sherilyn (SouthBayQuiltersGuild@gmail.com) and I will put you in touch with Eva. Also, if you have any thoughts to share on the book, we’re all ears, er, eyes!
