MY NEW QUILT BOOK


I just wanted to share with you my new quilt book, NOT YOUR GRANDMOTHER'S QUILT just out from the Kansas City Star. You can get one of your own here.

It has six lap sized quilts based on traditional blocks like those seen here.....
With some applique added to spice things up! The blocks are large and very fast, so these quilts will not take you months to complete!
There is a lovely little saying for each quilt, like this one from Kimberly McCole from Dear Daisy Cottage . She always writes the sweetest things on her blog, and she was kind enough to let me use this one!!! Thanks Kimberly!
Also, every quilt has a recipe that goes along with the quilt or it's name so you can bake, sew and then wrap up in your quilt as you read your book.
~~~ Thanks everyone for all your help in getting my book to the finish line. You have heard the old saying, "It takes a village to raise a child." Well, it takes a "heap" of talented people to produce a book.~~~
