Quilt Book Addiction
have ya missed me? :-)
*
I think our technical difficulties have been corrected. I hope you've missed me!
Just say, "YES" - LOL
*
Although I've been in a serious sewing holding pattern for the past three weeks (aka no sewing) it hasn't kept me from dreaming about future projects. :-)
*
I'm going to tell you about a few favs - just for fun.
*


"Scrap Basket Surprises" designed by Kim Brackett of Magnolia Bay Quilts is a Best Seller according to Martingale - That Patchwork Place.
*
This is one of my all time favorite quilt books so it's time to make more projects out of it. I cut all the pieces/parts for Kitchen Sink a year ago (YES, a year ago) and it still waits. It's really time to get busy because...................(drum roll please)


*


Kim's written a new book called "Scrap Basket Sensations". It promises to be as wonderful as the first one. Release date is early January.
*
I predict this one will be a Best Seller, as well.



*

"Schnibbles Times Two" by Carrie Nelson of Miss Rosie's Quilt Co - Sigh -another Best Seller. I don't have to dream about projects from this book because I've already made all the quilts - woohoo! :-)
*
This book is definitely a Best Seller - it was in it's 4th printing before it was six months old. WOW, WOW, WOW
*
It's time to start collecting Layer Cakes (10" squares) because a new book will be out late next year.
*


I really enjoy ALL of Kim Diehl's books and can hardly wait to add this one to my library. This is a new release and already a Best Seller.






*
Next post will be all about my Accuquilt GO! Cutter. :-) I'm having way too much fun.
*
Thanks for stopping by! Come again soon, please.
*
In Friendship!

I love my new Kim Diehl book. I will have to pick up a copy of the other Kim's book. I have MORE books and patterns than I can ever use, so I know your addiction. Welcome back, and yes we missed you.

Of course we missed you!

I have four quilts bookmarked in Scrap Basket Surprises and hope to get to making one after the new year. Her new book most definitely looks wonderful! All the books you featured are terrific, I agree. Can't wait for your GO post....

Loris said...

I missed ya :-)
Glad you are back. We are having computer 'issues' here too but are trying to shop for fixes before complete disaster.
Thanks for the notice of Kim's new book. I hadn't heard about it yet. Love her first one.
Happy Stitching!

Quilter Going Bananas said...

great book choices, I love them all :)

PunkiePie said...

Fun books! I only own one of them but I fully intend on making at least ONE quilt out of it. You amazed me by making all of them. :)

Anne said...

Don't you just love dreaming about all the fun projects in all the books? I have ALL of Kim Diehl's on my "to do" list. I'm gonna have to live to be 200!

Stitched With Prayer said...

DARLEEEEEENNNNNNNNEEEEE!!! Your Back!!! OH, I'm just so happy *sniffle*. Tissue please...okay, better now. Really glad to see you back my friend. I love all the books you show on your post. I don't have them yet but they are on "The List". Might be there a while, but eventually they will be on "My Shelf" , LOL. Hope you get to enjoy some sewing time very soon. I finally got back to a little bit of sewing a couple of days ago after a 5 month non-sewing period. Ah, but that was when stichery enter my life again so it was all for a good reason. Good things always come of bad things if you give them time...don't you find it that way? Hugs...

Stitched With Prayer said...

Wait, hold the phone! I do have Schnibbles Times Two and adore it. (thanks to the kindness of the ever cheerful and funny Carrie). Hugs...

Millie said...

I have Kim's Scrap Basket book and love all the patterns in it...I hope that someday I can make all of her patterns. The Scrap Basket Sensations look like a good book too.

Shakerwood said...

And thanks so much for your very kind words about the books. I really can't wait for you to see the new one. ;-)

Debi said...

I also love Scrap Basekt Surprises, made several from that book. Of course Schnibbles is my all tiem favorite. I am defintely going to look for Scap Basket Sensations as well. I am a layer cake/jelly roll junkie so this book will feed my addiction.

Dresden Quilter said...

Yes! I have two of those books and really enjoy them. Looking forward to reading the others.

Wendy said...

Yes I definitely been wondering where you've been and missed you. I love my Scrap Basket Kitchen Sink quilt, it's because of you I made that one. I'd like to make more from that book. I've made my first quilt from the Schnibbles book and will make more. All the books you've listed I'd love to have.

Jo said...

I have all the books except the new Scrap Basket Sensations...I did go on Amazon and they had a preview of the quilts that will be in the book. GREAT eye candy for sure.

Nanci said...

Lovely book ideas I'll have to check out and I can't wait to see your candle mat when you finish. I hope you were able to get a lot done while the computer down :)

Stitched With Prayer said...

Hey woman...whatcha doin??? *wink*

Ginger Patches said...

Of course you've been missed Big Sis!!! I hate technical difficulties...I just had some myself grrr!!! Scrap Basket Surprises is one of my favorites too...I'm so excited to get my hands on the next one woo hoo!!! I don't have Scnibbles 'cause I have too many of the patterns to repeat and buy the book but I did get her other new one...that I can't remember the name of right now and I love that one. Don't have any by Kim Diehl yet. I'll have to check out the layer cake one...

John'aLee said...

Good for you getting quilts cut out in advance. I sure wish I could do that. I wouldn't mind if it took me a year to get to the actual sewing part of it.
Thanks for the book review!

Cheryl said...

I see love the same books!! I have been trying to resist the GO..please don't tempt me :-)!

Becky said...

I'm putting several of these on my Christmas list this year. I have the Schnibble book, but really want the Simple Graces and new Scrap Basket Sensations book. Thanks for the review and best seller news! Take care!

pajudie said...

I just purchased "Simple Graces" by Kim Diehl - it's great and has some fun projects in it. I think my hobby is really buying fabrics and books - not quilting :o)
Judie

Quilter Kathy said...

I have not yet seen any of these books here. I try not to buy many books and use the library instead but these look like "must haves"!

Stitched With Prayer said...

Just wanted to say Hi before I go back upstairs to where it's warm. sorry about all the noise, my teeth are chattering. LOL. Hugs...

Millie said...

Darlene, I have a book and fabric addiction too.
