Three Reviews This Thursday

>> Thursday, March 4, 2010

More than three photos today. This is the newest book from Bonnie Hunter. I won it recently through Pat Sloan's blog. Pat has a radio show now which airs live Monday afternoons. Bonnie was one of her guests. I enjoyed listening to it. Pat has a link on her site to past shows.

A closeup of a partial photo of the bow tie block quilt. I can see this one being very dynamic with the intersecting sashes in black and white.



This is the book my sister gave me for my birthday. Too many quilts that I want to make in here! Great instructions and photos.

I really like how she gives fabric suggestions for EACH quilt. A great way for quilters to expand their colour knowledge. This is how I've learned alot about colour - by looking at what others do and figuring out what I like and don't like.

Talking about colour - take a moment to check out this great post by Wanda about Value. Her blog is a visual inspiration. She shares lots of tips and in progress posts, too.


Lastly today the latest edition of Quiltmaker magazine. I have to admit I bought it for the CD. I'm glad I did! It has great quilting motifs on it and a free quilt pattern that I like. I had forgot that there are quilts by Julie of Jaybird Quilts and Scott Hansen of Blue Nickel Studios in here too. Lots to enjoy in this issue.

Now - back to the sewing machine.

Thanks for the info on the books. I really want to make a red and white quilt sometime, I think Julie is fantastic and I have been very curious about Bonnie Hunter's books.
