Monday I ran to town to pick up a prescription. Of course, that had to include a trip to the thrift store. I ended up coming home with a stack of quilt magazines and quilting books.
I’ve told you prices are so good at our thrift store. Magazines and paperback books are 25 cents. Hard cover books are 50 cents. I bought three hard cover books that didn’t make it into the pictures. I was especially excited because there were copies of the old Quiltworks magazines. Those are my long time favorite.
When I go to bed at night I typically read a quilt magazine and then go to sleep. This stack should keep me busy for a LONG time.
My favorite in the bunch so far is this book.
Here is a sample page from the book. A block is shown then shown in different color ways. Then there is a page that you can color in and design the quilt however you’d like.
Some of the color ways they come up with for traditional blocks, I have never seen. It’s really fun.
I know someone will ask, so I am adding an Amazon link for the book, Patchwork Quilt Design and Coloring Book. I could easily see myself printing extra blank pages for kiddos to color too.
Hubby tells me I need to quit dragging stuff home…and I should but honestly, it fun entertainment for me to look at old quilting magazines…besides, he drags plenty of stuff home too.
What are your favorite old magazines or quilt books? I’d love to be on the look our for your recommendations.
