More Quilt Books!

This morning, I made a trip to Paintsville while I was there I stopped by my favorite bookstore! I trade my Historical Romance Novels in for more to read, but they also have a section of NEW books. I always look there for quilt books! This is what I found today! I bought these 4 books for $15! Not a bad price!!!!





Here is another block that I made the other night! I haven't had a chance to do any sewing this evening, I have been looking through these books.



Not sure how much sewing I will get done tomorrow either. Richard has to have a new pair of boots for work! Where he drives a coal truck and has to go on the mine sites he has to have a certain type of boot. He has had his others for several years and today the side split so there is a 5 inch gash between the leather and the sole. So anyway, he has to have a new pair!! :( Which he will get a discount because of the company that he works for and they are tax deductible!! We will be making the trip to Wade's Work and Western Wear in Ironton Ohio to get them. I think he is going to go deer hunting early in the morning so maybe I can get a little bit of sewing in while he is gone....

I bet you have enjoyed looking at the books...and dreaming about making so many new quilts.

Hope that trip isn't 10 zillion miles from your house...but glad that gas is down in price.

Have a great weekend...

Great bargain on the books, go to my blog and look at my flowered drunkard's path. It is from an Aussie patchwork magazine. It was time consuming but fun and easy once you get the hang of curved piecing, I also bought templates which are worth their weight in gold. I love visiting your site, thanks for sharing.
