Hello, it’s Karen, your librarian. I hope everyone is finding time for quilting this summer. The library is available to anyone who would like to pick up a few books. I have a box at the end of my driveway for easy pickup and drop off.
Several of the books featured below were written by quilters who spoke to us in the last few years, either at Twilight or at the day guild, the NCQG. Or are coming up! And others are always inspiring! Our library a great resource!
WALKING FOOT DESIGNS and EDGE TO EDGE QUILTING DESIGNS, written by Melissa Marginet. She kicked off our September Zoom meeting last year and recently taught a workshop for the day guild.
MODERN QUILTING by Jacquie Gering is a great resource for improvisational quilts and you may remember she held several great workshops for us a few years back. She is going to be the September speaker for NCQG and there may be a spot left in her Walking Foot Workshop.
ADDING LAYERS by Kathy Doughty is a great experimentation book on textiles, tools and techniques. If you love colour you will enjoy this book.
Tula Pink’s books, QUILTS FROM THE HOUSE OF TULA PINK and 100 MODERN QUILT BLOCKS are sure to inspire.
HERITAGE QUILTS by Kaffe Fassett is a fabulous book with his take on glorious quilts from past. His book has 20 quilt pattern .
SUNDAY MORNING QUILTS: 16 Modern Scrap Projects by Cheryl Arikson shows us how to use every last bit of our treasured fabrics.
Lastly, for anyone thinking about getting started on Christmas projects, there is SIMPLY MODERN CHRISTMAS by Cindy Lamon.
A detailed post on how to check out books, as well as the Library Thing list and a PDF of our library books can be found here!

Enjoy the rest of the summer! Karen
