Here is a redo. I posted this last week but the photos didn’t show for many of you and you were so disappointed. I redid the photos and am hoping that this time they work. I’m so excited about this book and really want to share it with you. The orange and blue quilt…I REALLY want to make that!!
Here is the post…
I am in love. What has caught my attention…and my heart? This book…A Scrapbook of Quilts by Joanna Figucroa and Carrie Nelson.
You can’t say I didn’t warn you if you want to quilt along with me, because I am going to make a couple of the quilts in this book. I’m trying so hard to pound out some UFOs and then this book and Scrap School, are going to be my focus. I am so tempted to throw the UFOs aside but, I can’t. I’ll feel too guilty…but maybe, maybe I could slowly work on one of these and still work on my UFO quilts.
Have you seen the book? I have lots of pictures for you. The book is super fun as the two authors, Joanna Figucroa and Carrie Nelson teamed up to make an amazing book. There are pincushions, pillows, and quilts all in one book.
One thing I like about the book is that the gals take a block…and then they both make a different quilt with it…or a pillow…or a pincushion. Check out the spool quilt and the spool pillow…and the spool pincushion. SO CUTE!
I love Carrie’s version. It’s the one with the nine patches in the center of the spool in the picture below…
Here’s a closeup of the spool pillow. LOVE!
I was pretty excited about the book and then I saw the red white and blue quilt in the picture below. LOVE!! It’s VERY me!
Here it is another colorway…more scrappy.
If the patriotic quilt wasn’t enough for me then this quilt was!!
Oh, I love this block. Do you all remember that I have been collecting calico fabric and looking for the perfect pattern to use it with? I think this quilt might be it. I have that on my brain…once I get the UFOs done, I just might start it.
But…I love it with just the orange and blue. Oh, I love both versions. What to do? How to pick?
If that wasn’t enough, I squealed when I saw this quilt. Of course I love the red, blue and yellow version.
More pillows and pincushions…so cute.
I’m thinking about making the spool ones. I love the black background version. It would be so cute in my dough bowl. Hmm.
Can you believe there is yet another quilt I’m flipping out about?? This one…
I listened to floss tube and a couple of the people had shown this book, they were crazy about the house quilt. I like it but the other quilts would be sooner in line for me to make. Oh my…so many great quilts.
Now I’m going to go back through the book and see how many of them use 2 1/2″ strips. Oh I hope some do. Remember I am going to try to tackle my 2 1/2″ buckets. Please oh please let some of these use at least some 2 1/2″ strips.
So many scrappy quilts…so many quilts that I can’t help but love. Did you see why I bought the book??
OH>>> Now you can see why I am pushing so hard to get the UFOs finished so I can happily make these guilt-free. Who am I kidding? I’ll have to start one of these…I just have to. Now, which one?? Which is your favorite
You can find the book HERE on Amazon.
