A few books arrived in the mail yesterday, and one in particular has me planning another quilt...
Modern Log Cabin Quilting by Susan Beal has been all over the blogs lately and I simply couldn't resist. I ran out to B&N to grab a copy and -- get this -- they didn't have it. Argh! Why are "local" bookstores going out of business? Because they aren't stocking the books people want.
So, home I went, logged onto Amazon and ordered a copy. It was cheaper ($14 vs. $23) and arrived in only a few days. We already lost our nearest Borders, and I fear B&N is close behind.
About the book... at first glance it looks fantastic. Lots of great info on log cabin quilts up front and the projects are all updated versions of the traditional log cabin quilt. There are even a few smaller projects in the back for those who just want to dabble.
Look for a new quilting project coming soon -- looks like my crafting energy is on its way back!
