New quilting treasures.
I have a nice new stash of quilting treasures to play with now that I'm home :)
I buy a lot of my books from the second hand booksellers on Amazon.co.uk and the Civil War Diary Quilt book by Rosemary Youngs is one of them.
The book contains 121 full size quilt blocks as well as authentic diary entries of 10 women living during the Civil War. Fascinating reading but I'm oh so glad I didn't have to live through it.
While I was in England I managed a very short 20 minute visit to Heath's Country Store in Nottinghamshire (they were about to close)and just had time to grab three FQ's of quilting fabric that I'll use for pinkeeps.
The shop owner, Dee, has her own line of stitchery patterns and the harvest pillow pattern is one of them.
Lastly, the three quilting patterns came from my lovely friend Christine in Canada.
Thank you so much Christine - I absolutely love them :)
