I ordered these new books a week or so ago, what a lovely surprise to come home from a day out to find them at my door.
I have quite a bit of 1930's fabric, and thought this Granny Quilt Decor book would be great inspiration for a new quilt or two.
Inside the book are patterns for bed quilts, wall hangings, kitchen decor things like place mats etc.....also a great read on the 1930's fabric and how feed sacks came about.
A lot of the designs in this book have scalloped edges, so of course I just had to have the Easy Scallop Template.
As my DH always says..." You have to have the right tools for the job"....so I took his advice!
The Curved Patch book, I thought might help me be a bit more adventurous and get me out of doing the normal piecing, may even find some ideas for borders in there too.
I have started hand quilting my Grandma's Garden Hex quilt, I didn't realize it was so big, but I'm enjoying it and an added bonus is that it's keeping me warm in the evening as the chilly night air sets in..
Have a lovely day..
