Brioni's latest book

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!

Some project I may have seen before on Flickr or on her website, but their gorgeous nonetheless.
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.


  1. Oh dear. Yet another book to put on the list : )

  2. think I need to check this book out too, belated happy birthday, afraid I past that land mark many years ago.

  3. Glad you enjoyed it, I've seen a number of people raving about it :o)
