Inspired


Hello all
There are more quilting books out there than you can shake a stick at. every once in a while I just can't help myself , I buy one. I would rather spend my money on paintsticks and fabric dye than on a book so if I buy one and use the expression " it makes my teeth sweat" then sit up and listen. The fact that I am enjoying geometry is enough to make the world spin backwards.


Jenny Raymont is a funny lady . Her book, Tucks and Textures Two is a manual not a pattern book. I saw a quilt at Cold Sassy Quilt Guild made by Ann, the Circle Square Quilter . http://circlesquarelongarmquilting.blogspot.com/2009/11/some-recent-projects.html

Once I got the book I realized I would have to study and practice the techniques in this book. . Being a rather practical person I had to have a purpose to my practicing . So far I have made the easier of the shapes and started putting together a bolster pillow , that is the flat blue object in the photos.

Have a great day!
