Do you love books as much as I do? My stack of quilting books looks a lot like that one above - all marked up with post-it notes on the pages of quilts I want to make!
But lately I've discovered the joy of e-books - all saved on my computer and easily accessible! I miss the feel of the book sometimes, but the space saving is enormous... and that's a big help, because it means more room for fabric!
Recently I was asked to review two new e-books, and I want to share those with you today.
The first book, a wonderful blending of old and new, talks about the history of log cabin quilts and provides several new log cabin designs. Based on three styles of log cabin blocks, the traditional, courthouse steps, and chevron, the book offers multiple settings for each style, cutting charts, and several more modern variations of each.
I also loved the sewing tips that were provided, and there are directions for a piped binding that I'm dying to try! You can get your own copy of this e-book by clicking here - go for it, it's free!!
The second book is a quick and simple rendition of three modern quilt patterns - a simple yet effective teenager's quilt, a rainbow HST quilt, and an interesting quilt-as-you-go diagonal strip quilt that I'm dying to try! There's not as much meat in this e-book, but the patterns are nice and would be a great addition to your library. And once again, it's free - so click here and check it out!
And now, just so you could see what my world would look like if I indulged in every paper book I wanted...
