    I am trying to find the book by Jaynette Huff " Quilts from Grandmother's Garden".
    It is out of print but I would like to get it cheap. Amazon has it for too much$. Has anyone seen it or have a copy they might like to share or sell???

    ouchy ouchy on that price! betterworld supports literacy efforts worldwide and recycles used books. Sometimes they have things you can't get anywhere else... usually free shipping, too.

    $20.13 Canadian is the best price I could find, but did not see what the shipping would be.

    also try www.edwardrhamilton.com
    search for the name. if it's a really new book, he probably won't have it. but if he does, most books are very cheap!

    how many different patterns/layouts does the book include? i ask because i couldn't find a description that provided that much detail.

    considering that the pattern on the front would most likely sell for at least $7 by itself, if there are more than 4 different patterns in the book then $20 or so is a fair price.

    it's 80 pages long. i suspect there are more than 4 patterns inside.

    naturally, i hope you find a copy for a price you can afford to pay right now. if not, save up for it. i don't think you'll be sorry in the end.

    I noticed on the order it said, "Find it at your local library". I have gone to our library and was surprised at all the books on quilting so it is worth a try. I have found some patterns that I want to make in the future.

    I did see that about Local Library.... I am going to venture out today and see if ours has it. There is also a used book store here in Town I am going to check out as well...
    I many of the sites people who have had this patterns say it is done in small Hex's but have made the larger ones for a bed spread and that is my goal..... i fell in love with the pattrn when I saw in on another blog, but cannot find that site again!!! bummer :cry: :cry: !!!

    It would be worth looking at the Library to see if you'd like to spend that much money, Must be a great book at that price. :P

    I'm curious, why is this book so expensive? Is it because it is out of print, or is it a classic? I have never read about it before?

    I have that book and it was 23.95 at Joann Fabrics. Of course, the cheap chick that I am..got it for 50% off. They still carry it at our local store.

    Have you checked out half.com? It's a division of eBay and has great prices, Plus you can list your books, etc. to sell on there.
