My friends over at Pickle Dish sent my another book to review, “Stitches from the Schoolhouse” by Renee Plains.
The book is divided into four basic sections. One features five different quilt/wall hangings. Also featured are 6 sewing “needfuls”, 3 samplers and 5 accessories. There are a wide variety of projects.
Here’s my favorite quilt of the bunch….perfect for a baby quilt.
I love this apple pincushion.
Kelli loved these little sewing “kits” that are featured in the book. She said she is always stitching at the couch when watching television and these little “kits” would make it easy to stay organized.
The little Alphabet Pin Keep is so cute too.
There’s a pattern for this little tote too.
All in all this is a nice book with a wide variety of projects that you are sure to enjoy. Would you like a chance to win the book? Just leave a comment here telling where you graduate high school from and how many were in your graduating class. Me, I graduated from New Richland-Hartland Public school in Minnesota in 1984. We had 48 kids in our class.
Last week’s winner of Czecherboard Quilts by Rose Ann Cook is….maureen prendergast who said, “I am a history buff who’s been working on my family tree (have gotten back to the early 1700′s in Ireland)
The 1 1/8″ is gorgeous! I have bins of skinny strings! Also like the bed runner. If I win the book- I’ll be inspired to make both (and maybe the patriotic quilt for my son too!!)”
Rose Ann contacted me after I wrote the review. She asked me to let you know that if you’d like an autographed copy you can order a copy from her shop, Quilter’s Emporium.
I’ve had a great time with all the books that they have provided for review….I loved the new Bonnie Hunter book and have last week’s and this week’s books as they both have a focus on history. Pickle Dish has lots of great quilting related books and I hope I can review more for them.
