At the end of the tour, you are taken into the book room. Books and patterns that are over six months old may be found in this room. Each book is five dollars, except the ones with the blue dots which are three dollars. I came home with $135.00 worth of books and patterns for $29.00.
This book combines piecework with applique. It is pretty traditional, but I really like the patterns.
There were many more books that I wanted, but I had set a limit on myself before I went in.
On top of all the wonderful books I purchased, I also won a beautiful new book called A Year in the Life of Sunbonnet Sue by Christine Porter and Darra Williamson, and was published in 2011.
This book has 12 small quilt patterns (22"x26"), each commemorating a different month of the year. There are also directions for making 12"x16" blocks to be set into a bigger quilt. The retail price on the book is $24.99, if you are into that sort of thing. This is the book I am going to give away. If you would like this book, please leave me a comment telling me your favorite quilting tip. I will draw randomly next Monday for a winner. You don't have to become a follower, but if you would like to, I would be very happy. Please make sure I can contact you if you are the winner.
Good luck to all of you who want this book.
Joyful quilting, everyone.
