Hi! We've emerged from Christmas with some awesome gifts, so for a couple of posts I have some stuff to share with you.
As a member of the Bright Colors Club (not a club, really, but you know you're a member if you gravitate toward those brilliant hues), I am excited about Scrap Republic by Emily Cier.
It's 8 Quilt Projects for Those Who Love Color and it doesn't disappoint. I love free piecing my quilts and any book that says, "Find colored scraps that are about 1" X 2" wide and about 5" long" is a winner. Other quilt instructions are more specific, so if you are in the measure accurately club (all these clubs!), you, too will like this book.
My color sense is a work in progress. I learned a lot at Gwen Marston's Beaver Island Quilt Retreat this past summer, but an intense learning experience like that makes one realizes how little they know!
This book will help add to the learning and I can't wait to get started on some of the projects.
I hope this year to make a quilt a month. It's not a resolution, but just a way to keep meself on the straight and narrow, finish up some in-progress projects and finally make some wall hangings and quilts for the house.
What quilty plans do you have for the upcoming year?
