As a bit of light relief after all that cutting, I made up a couple of Tonya's http://lazygalquilting.blogspot.com/ wonky houses. Doesn't the one on the right look straightlaced against the nice and wonky one on the left? I know which one I prefer - the wonkier the better.
I have just bought this book. I think part of what attracts me to quilting isn't just the artistry and colours but the history of them too. I know this book isn't specifically about quilts but there's a sort of tenuous link. It is entirely made up of diaries and letters of women who travelled on the Western Trails, complete with spelling and grammar mistakes. It had really good reviews on Amazon, although it seems quite an academic book. I'll let you know how I get on with it.
This will be my last post for a few days so have a good weekend all.
