Here is some news from Karen Johnstone, our librarian.
“The Guild has purchased two new books for the library. The 3-Yard books by Donna Robertson can be seen front and centre in the quilt shops. We have “Modern Views” and “Quick as a Wink”. Between the two books are 16 patterns for quilts using only 3 one yard cuts of fabric.
We’ve recently had some great books donated by some generous members.
“Quilting on the Go” by Jessica Alexandrakis has 10 step-by-step English Paper Piecing projects and covers topics such as sewing kit essentials, colour theory and stash organization.
“The Improv Handbook for Modern Quilters” by Sherri Lynn Good is a beautifully photographed book in which she “provides a sensible approach to quilt making that breaks free of old rules and expectations in a fun, accessible way” .
“Zen Chic Inspired” is a Guide to Modern Quilt Design by Brigitte Heitland. She provides instruction for 12 quilts using unique colours and decor elements in your favourite rooms.
“Quilting Wide Open Spaces” by Judi Madsen gives “down to earth advice about enhancing large open areas with machine quilting”.
“Quilting Back to Front” by Larraine Scouler shows clever methods for using the fabric on the back of your quilt for quilting designs.
I will be setting up a mini library at the Retreat in October where you’ll be able to sign out books.
