Except recently, when I was inspired to make quilt tops from two terrific books.
I needed to make it at least a twin size, because this quilt is for our charity work at Ties That Bind Quilt Group. We're making quilts for people who have been homeless, who are now being helped into housing. They will get to keep the quilts no matter what happens. I hope this one goes to a child who will love and use it.
Do you ever check out a book from the library, and then not want to take it back? That's the problem I'm having with this book: Dessert Roll Quilts: 12 Simple Dessert Roll Quilt Patterns by Pam and Nicky Lintott.
This quilt is also for our charity project. I'm thinking about making another one in different colors, for me.
Because these are copyrighted designs, I can't pass along the patterns (sorry). But if you see these books somewhere, like the library or the bookstore, they are definitely worth having/borrowing. And don't worry, Germantown quilters, I WILL return the book to the library. Really. There are a couple more patterns I want to try out first, though. And did I mention there are recipes?
May all your days be pieceful.
