I have just received a book in the postbox which I have to tell you about, I'm so enthusiastic!
25 Ways to Sew Jelly Rols, Layer Cakes & Charm Packs by Brioni Greenberg.
Helen blogged about it and was enthusiastic, so I put it on my birthday wish list. O yes, sorry you weren't invited, but I hardly ever give BIG (loud) parties. Maybe next year?
And in case you're wondering: I'm one of the big girls now because I'm 51!
Anyroad: I very often buy a book in an acutal shop (or on the web, yes) and then I come home, have a proper look at it and find that only one and if I'm lucky perhaps 2 quilts are in there I really like; I really want to make.
This time it's the other way round: perhaps there's 1, perhaps 2 I know I'll never make: the other 23 are fabulous!!
Every favorite of Brioni can be found here: petals and asterisks. I love 'm both too.
Anything with flowers (but 60's & 70's fabrics) is good with me.
I also love that she hasn't always chosen white (or snow) as a background for a quilt or another project.
That gives it all the more originality!
Like for instance the table runner on the right, with the holly leaves: she's got a tutorial for them on her site: look here.
Perhaps it's your birthday soon, or you want to treat yourself?
You certainly wouldn't want to wait till Christmas, would you?
I'm sure you'll love it too.
