Weekend Viewing Pleasure

>> Sunday, March 9, 2014

This weekend to start off the March Break, our library is having a book sale. This time we managed to get to the sale on the 2nd day and scored lots of great science books for my husband's classroom library. I also got this book! One of the first colour books I looked at when I started quilting many years ago. Now I own my own copy :)

I also took a few minutes to play and make one of my basket blocks using some of the scraps I won from Scott at Blue Nickel Studios. The peach background colour is from my stash - the rest was pieced from his scraps. 

You can make your own basket block using my instructions found here:
Basket Block for Layer Cake Quilt Along.

I know it's over, but it's never too late to start an alphabet quilt! Free letter blocks from Moda designers! I suggest starting at Pat Sloan's blog post - from there you can follow links to all of the designers and their letters.

This is a mini quilt Lisa Bonegan of Primitive Gatherings Quilt Shop made using the letters! If only I had time to make one just like it!

Here's a Canadian project you can support. Brandy Lynn Maslowski has written a quilting story about a little girl who discovers quilting at a quilt retreat. A fun book idea! A great way to share quilting with the next generation.  For just a $1 you can help this book get published.  Click this link to see more details - blow a kiss to support Kristy's Quilt.
Here's the link to visit Brandy Lynn's blog - she's also the host of the Canadian Quilt Podcast.
