Day 20 quilting is the perfect time to look at some quilting books. As a designer I just love looking at other people’s patterns. I don’t make any of them, but it is a pleasure to see them and often sparks off a new, totally unrelated quilt design for me. It’s one way to find quilting inspiration.
Don’t forget you can also check my blog for book reviews, all these books and more will be reviewed. Check out the C&T Publishing website.
New Quilt Books
