MILLENNIUM QUILTS – LOOKING BACK 20 YEARS

Millennium Quilts – looking back 20 years. Were you quilting 20 years ago? If so, do you remember if you had a special quilt project for the year 2000?

MY “GO TO” QUILTING BOOKS

MY “GO TO” QUILTING BOOKS

I am regularly asked by blog readers to suggest books that I feel are classic and timeless for quilting info. Below are the ones that are my “go to” quilt books for instructions, photos, and inspiration. All are older books. I have used them hard. The bindings are long since broke and three now have spiral bindings because of that. But the information is timeless and helpful. Beginner quilter to expert, I really do recommend these books for a personal…

FREEDOM QUILT

Do you buy cheater blocks on a whim, and then just not know what to do with them? I sure do. I seem to collect them up for awhile and then try to figure out a fun, unique way to use them.

DAYS ARE TUMBLING BY QUILT

DAYS ARE TUMBLING BY QUILT

Do you love being home during the COVID-19 virus and having time to catch up on projects? Do you have trouble keeping track of exactly what day it is without the “normal” schedule of two months ago? I have really enjoyed the time at home working and having time to work on projects. Kind of the best of both worlds. But I do find that I have to pay attention to the calendar or my days blend together. Hence this…
