    I would use your Canterbury and Bed & Breakfast collections for many of the quilts in the book. The Canterbury collection for the Farnhouse Quilt and the Bed & Breakfast collection for the Shimmering Birches Quilt. What great projects. The table runners are also great.

    How do I decide the chinese coins or one of the 3 versions of a log cabin. And I have gone through the tutorials on log cabins already – mmmmmmm. I think that book would assist me with my decision. I would peruse it at night before sleep and most likely dream about it.

    01/10/2011 10:31 pm

    If you look at the comments on my “spools quilt” picture on “MY PAGE” you’ll see that I love spools because they remind me of my Aunt Lorraine who inspired me to sew. She’s the reason I’m here. I’ll be keeping my fingers crossed!

  164. Stephanie Says:
    01/11/2011 3:52 am

    I’m voting for the Spools Quilt. I have my own personal challenge for 2011 which I’m calling “Sew Down the Stash” which is one way of using what I have and finishing what I started. This book using strips and scraps could give creative wings to my stash!

  171. Tracy Trimble Says:
    01/11/2011 7:27 am
