This week was once more filled with some surprises – not only that the painters came, but I have also received all the books I ordered from Amazon. I am fully smitten, love them and I am a proud new owner of these wonderful books.
Let me list all titles, one after the other:
- Elizabeth Hartman : Modern Patchwork – 12 Quilts to Take You Beyond the Basics
- Transparency Quilts : 10 Modern Projects by Weeks Ringel and Bill Kerr
- Modern Quilting Designs .: 90+ Free-Motion Inspirations
- Free Motion Quilting with Angela Waters : Choose and Use Quilting Designs on Modern Quilts
Especially #4 was very inspiring for me. I have done some FMQ but a few new hints always make life easier. I have found some new ideas and some other information about quilting threads. The threads are already on their way down to Spain and I am looking forward to work with them. Well, I live here in a quilting “desert” and any kind of literature and information is warmly welcome.
In the meantime I have started with a new quilt “Avenue Loop” with fabric that I have ordered some time ago. It is a FQ collection of Freshcut from Heather Bailey. It has sat some time in the closet and I finally got an idea for a new quilt. Here a small detail :
Also a few snapshots of my orchids :
