Look what I found!!!
I really liked three of these books and would consider purchasing them to add to my library. They are all quite different.
Dare to be Square Quilting by Boo Davis is a wonderful book. The quilts are different and fun! There are owls and skeletons and very fun quilts.
Farm Girl Quilts by Tammy Johnson and Avis Shirer is a beautiful book. I'd love to make the quilt on the cover. It is a combination of piecing and applique. There are two other quilt in the book - Mrs Nolan's Chicken Farm and Snow on Furrowed Ground that are beautiful two color quilts I would love to make.
This next book is call The Quiltmakers and is a collection of quilts from 8 quilt designers - Lynette Jensen, Petra Prins, Carolyn Forster, Lynette Anderson-O'Rourke, Lynne Edwards, Joanna Figueroa, Janet Bolton and Marsha McCloskey.
One of my favorites was this Feathered Star patchwork by Marsha McCloskey.
In this last one, I found the quilt project I can adapt for my Countdown to Christmas layer cake. I just love it. It will show the fun prints off well and seems like quite a lot of fun to assemble.
The quilt is called Fresh Vintage and is by Joanna Figueroa.
The pattern calls for yardage but I am confident I can adapt to a layer cake. Each layer cake will yield 6 of those triangles if I cut very carefully. I am going to use the solid red as the dominant color. The Countdown to Christmas has some black prints. I intend to use some of these in the quilt but this pattern will not require me not to use all of them.
Time to sharpen the rotary cutter!
