Here are some sample pages for another book I thought Lucy might like. I found this book from Finn's posting of that scrappy medallion quilt awhile back. I had to check into this book and found that I could still get it used from a 3rd party via Borders! I got it for $5! And it was worth every penny!
The name of the book is Women and Their Quilts: A Washington State Centinnial Tribute. This book has about a page about the quilt and the woman who made it, and then a full page picture of the quilt. There are some great quilts in here. So for $5 (plus shipping) it is worth it.
The top picture is a wonderful Pointsettia Quilt which is gorgeous. I would love to have this quilt, but not sure my patience would hold out to make it! And of course the hand quilting is to die for. The second page is about the quilt and maker.
My absolute favorite quilt that I think I will try and make is the Feathered star above! Isn't the border awesome with this quilt! I think I can actually make this one! Course then I'll want quilting like it too! On the very next page is also another really fun blue and pink quilt I could make and will put on my list - another feathered star variation, but much simpler.
Hope you enjoy the sample pages!
