Each Tuesday, I review a quilt product or try something new. I often host giveaways too….Make sure to stop over each Tuesday to check it out.
Today I have a great new quilting book to tell you about, Czecherboard Quilts, by Rose Ann Cook. The great people over at Pickledish sent it to me.
I am a real history buff and love to read about other people’s families. Throughout the quilt book Rose Ann tells bits and pieces of her Father’s Czech family history and shares photos that inspired quilts.
There are 14 projects in the book. There are bed runners….
and even a cute wool mat included too.
I am in love with this throw quilt. The blocks are simple nine patches but the border features some amazing applique.
If you have a bird lover you’d like to make a quilt for, this one is cute.
This patriotic quilt was Kelli’s favorite. I really liked it too!!
Our favorite project of all was this quilt…AMAZINGLY simple but I LOVE it!!
It’s made from 1 1/8″ strips!! Tiny, right?? I think that’s why I love it so much.
The book has some really nice quilt projects, but it’s fun to read the family history too. I would recommend it.
Would you like a chance to win it. Just leave a comment telling which of project that I showed you was your favorite.
Before you go…last week’s winner of “Pretty in Patchwork: Holidays” by John Q. Adams donated by Lark Crafts is….Jolyn Olson who said, “Last Christmas I made fleece mittens for our 11 grandkids, 2 extra guests, couple neice and nephews and 15 dozen (or more) for underprivileged kids in the cities and Alaska. (I’m already stocked up on fleece for this year!)”
WOW Jolyn…way to go!! After all that hard work you deserve a book that will inspire you to make goodies!
