QUILTING BOOKS FOR TINY SCRAPS
Quilting Books for Tiny Scraps – I am not really sure how it happens, but I start with one shelf for quilting books and pretty soon they have taken over two. I recently decided that some weeding and/or organizing of these books was necessary. Doing this actually forces me to really look at the books – which can be a distraction because then I start thinking “I could do this quilt, or this one…….” And sometimes I even wonder what in the world I was thinking when I brought a book home.
Over the past 2 or 3 years, I have been trying to use up my scraps and also my stash. These two books have wonderful patterns or ideas that I have based a couple scrap quilts on. They have patterns from easy to expert. They are “keepers” for my personal library.
I was asked how I get books with spiral bindings. After purchasing, I take the books to the local copy shop. There they cut off the binding and put on this spiral binding. I like my quilt books this way because they lay flat when I am working on a project. The cost is very reasonable – generally about $2-3 each book.
I truly encourage quilters to collect quilt books that are helpful to you, whether it is techniques, patterns, or inspiration. There are so many wonderful quilting books out there to choose from. We don’t need all the books, but building our own reference library of books that help us as quilters is a great boost to our quilting journey.
