I don't often buy books. After all, I design quilts every week and can generally look at a photo of a quilt and figure it out. But there are 2 quilts that I've been seeing on the web lately that prompted me to buy these books.
It all started with this quilt. Everyone seems to be making a Fractured quilt and I want to make one too. Yes, it's easy to figure out on your own but I know that Kathy Doughty writes good books and has very interesting patterns. The Fractured quilt is in the book Making Quilts. I think this would be fun in my hand dyed scraps or any other scraps and I could make a QOV and a veteran's quilt from this. The book has some other fun quilts too.
Like this one
and this one.
The other book is Colorful Quilts by Any Walsh and Janine Burke.
This is the quilt that I want to make from that book.
This would be a fun quilt for a gift.
And this one would be fun for hand dyed scraps too.
But I'm going to start with Fractured. I think I'll try to start it in September. Anyone else making this one? Should we do it together?
