Attention Prim Lovers!!! I got this book from Amazon the other day and it is truly amazing. It is one of those rare books that is everything I had hoped it would be--full of gorgeous primitive, folk art quilts, great patterns, and what look to be good directions. I so want to post a couple of photos of inside pages but don't know if that is allowed by the copyright police. Anyone enlighten me? There is one stunning Halloween log cabin beauty with a hooked pillow topper that is now at the top--or near--the evergrowing "list". Just yummy. Oh, and an antique looking yellow work chicken piece that has fantastic black print hexagons. Oh, and a wild horse in wool beauty! Every quilt in this book is a winner. Well, I will stop going on about this book because--let's face it, without pictures it's just no fun!!! If I weren't so busy making baby quilts right now, I'd start right in
today on one of the luscious quilts in this book!!! No affiliation, just a tickled purchaser.
Now back to reality. Betty showed her first quilt on her blog. So I decided to post one of my early ones. I think I posted this several months back also. This sampler was not my VERY first quilt but an early one. It is good ol' poly-cotton blend fabric. Hand- pieced and hand-quilted and gosh, it only took me a couple of years to finish it LOL! It was done as a BOM at a lady's home. Lots of fun but definitely not my taste now! It resided on my bed for many years and lived through lots of launderings. Ya know, poly just doesn't wear out!!! And now a word about Betty! She recently started her own blog and I was so delighted. I have never met Betty in person, but have been on a couple of Yahoo groups with her. And I can tell you, her work is extraordinary. Everytime she posted a photo on one of the groups, I just gushed (to myself, of course)! She does the most beautiful stuff and is a true inspiration. Go check her out---you'll be glad you did.
