brown truck visit

safe to say i almost never pay full price for a book but after serious consideration, succumbed to this one.  it arrived yesterday and today i'm adding one more thing to the sewing space--a scrap basket.  previously i had cut up scraps into squares or strips but after reading AND seeing this, i need a scrap basket.  i have a lot of strips and squares on hand that do get used but will try something new and exciting with them.  what she does with scraps isn't new, so it must mean i'm creatively ready to veer off into a new quilty direction.  traditional quilts are still my faves, but using color in a different (to me) way is beckoning.  if you read this book, it may speak to you as well.  at the very least, it's worth a look.

  1. Somebody else mentioned that book too. Sounds interesting. Hope to see your end results, and if you want some scraps I've got more than enough. I still haven't finished the crumb quilt I started last year. Quite willing to share them.

  2. Thanks!! It's mostly about process and inspiration! And even using those squares for fast made fabric! Have fun with it!

  3. Saw this on Kathie's blog, too. Looks very intersting. But, I haven't even bought Bonnie Hunter's latest yet. No new books until the start of next year--maybe. Do you like the conviction in that? : )
