Quilt Book Review: Zakka from the Heart from Jo's Country Junction

C&T Publishing sent me books to review again.  I picked this one right away.  I have a book by the same author that has become one of the books I keep at my nightstand and page through.  This one, I can see me paging through night after night too.  This book is Kakka from the Heart by Minki Kim.

I tell you this all the time…and it’s true again.  The people in charge of promotions are doing a crappy job at picking photos to promote the book.

River Road Quilt Shop from Jo's Country Junction

I told you that when I went for my biopsy on Monday that I stopped at the River Road Quilt Shop in Lacrosse.  It’s only a few blocks from the hospital and clinic so it’s easy to stop.   I’m trying to stay out of quilt shops and not spend any more money than I already have (more on that to come)…but the mystery quilt colors were revealed and I need a few more pieces so what’s a girl to do but shop.

The outside doesn’t look very friendly, does it?  But I’ve been ...

Quilt Book Review: Autumn Bouquet from Jo's Country Junction

Martingale Publishing sent me LOTS of quilt books to review and here is yet another one.  This one had me wishing I was into applique.  It had me thinking I wanted to try.

The book is Autumn Bouquet by Sharon Keightley.  Here’s the cover by just wait until you see the inside.

I think one of the best ways and most complimentary ways to describe the book is if you like Kim Diehl, you likely like this designer too.  They both create amazing quilts by combining applique and piecing.

I think this little project is my favorite from the ...
