    I just bought Skillbuilder Mastery and Skillbuilder Companion from <http://www.rgadesignquilts.com/store...d3b833153325be>

    They might be skinny books but there's a ton of info and quilting design ideas.

    I'm with you! Kaffe can take a traditional block and make it sing w/ fabric and setting-

    Crazy Curves continues by Elsa's Back Porch. Very inspiring to do something different.

    The Giving Quilt: Fast Quilts for Comfort and Healing - which I got on sale at Joann's and love it! I've made two and my new-to-sewing niece has made her first quilt from here for an English class project that her English Teacher has fallen in love with.

    Fast and Fun Machine Quilting - Rodale's Successful Quilting Library - got this one at our quilt guild silent auction for $1!!! Really like the tips on how to machine quilt and how to fix problems in your machine quilting.

    I just got "300 Paper-Pieced Quilt Blocks" by Carol Doak and "365 Foundation Quilt Blocks" by Linda Causee. Paper-Pieced books I can never pass up.

    Circle of Nine's - Great quilts, and a real fun way to make a quick quilt. Just nine blocks, then connecting sections

    I LOVE this book!

    I just bought a new one by Pam and Nicky Lintott called Jelly Roll Sampler Quilts. It has more than 50 different blocks, all adapted for 2.5" strips. You can make one of the quilts in the book or combine any of the blocks for your own design. I like that...lots of blocks to try out. And I have lots of scraps cut into 2.5" strips.

    You will love Traditions... I have made so many of the patterns in the book and they have all come out wonderful. Blanche is the person that developed the strip method that we are so grateful for. This method gives the best results and are fool proof.

    Blanche is a friend of mine. Just visited her last week at her new "home". She's still sewing at 93 and has another book in the works.

    the one I checked out of the library by Pam and Nicky had "friendship braid" and I saw on Missour star quilt company's you tube a way to use a binding tool to cut the pieces. Can't wait to try it.

    When it seems like the world is falling to pieces remember that the pieces are falling into place. We are nearing closer to the End Times.
