    Free for now- quilt book for Kindle

    Quilts Their Story and How to Make Them by Marie Daugherty

    I have it downloaded but haven't look through it or read any of it but it's free so worth getting to check it out.


    Got fabric?

    Yoou can also download it from the Project Gutenberg- site. The HTML-version has all the designs and pictures that is in the original book.

    I use this site for free books for Kindle or Nook. Seems more free books for Kindle then the Nook though.

    I have a Nook. How do I download books from them? When I try, I have a pop-up that tells me that I need to install an "epub" thing.

    I have Kindle Fire so get all the pictures and in color. DH has the Kindle with keyboard so it's not good for quilt books.
