Reading instead of sewing this last few evenings. And I finished Jennifer Chiaverini's newest book. Her books are always a "feel good" read in my opinion and this one was no different.
She introduces us to some lovely new characters, and gives us an update on beloved "old" characters. And I just may have to try out the Giving Quilt pattern.
And last night after work I stopped at my favorite local book store and picked up volume 6 of Quiltmakers 100 Blocks. I have all 5 of the previous volumes and this one is possibly the best one yet. I can only say WOW!! This magazine was just what I needed to put a little MOJO back into my sewing. There are some gorgeous blocks in there that I just know I will try out. The first one I plan to make is Wayne Kollinger's Indian Cabin block. Check out his blog post that shows some variations in layout he suggests for his block. I really love the strong geometric look of this one!
