I decided I wanted to read as many of the books on the Booker... from Wolf Creek Quilting



I decided I wanted to read as many of the books on the Booker Long List 2021 before the end of the year. I’m getting a late start and some of the books aren’t available in audio yet - but we’ll give it a go! Light perpetual was so amazing! 5 lives that ended when a London Woolworths was bombed in 1944. This book was about what if’s - how their lives might have been. There is a reason it is on this list!

Improv Summer Bee Blocks: part 2 from Goer

Yesterday I shared my improv hammock quilt block. The second block I made for Chris was a book.

The book block was less tricky. I started by cutting book page shaped pieces out of the blue fabric. Then I added borders of white on three sides. I used the blue and white book pages as my template for cutting the background. These strips are about 5/8" wide. Rectangles were cut for the sides and I used the curve edge of the blue fabric as my template to cut the curves white strips.

Next, I cut out the book shape ...
