    Hi. I hope there is someone out there with a better memory than I have. A little while ago a lady posted 2 pictures of 2 quilts she had just finished and said they were her first. They were absolutely beautiful and she said she paper pieced them and even gave the name of the book she used. I wrote it down but for the life of me I can't find it, I thought the first name of the woman that wrote the book was laura, but I could be way off. Does any one remember this because I sure would love to know the name of the book that she used, thanks for any help

    Charlee you're wonderful!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! This is exactly what I was looking for. After I saw the picture I googled the name Karen Stone and found thats the name of the book. I'm going to have my LQS order it for me. I looked at Borders this morning and thier selection of quilting books is sparce to say the least. I'm not sure if I can do thoes curves on the paper either but I'm going to give it a shot. So THANKS again and it is the greadtest quilting site on the web and its all because of ladies and men like you.

    Yes you do. It is 24.95 for 6 mo. or 42.95 for a year. It is money well spent. You get lots of different professional quilters on the shows, and there is quilting classes all the time by Alex.Andersonand Ricky Tims.. If you get the yearat 42.95 you can goback and seeallthe classes since the Quilt showstarted in 2007.
