There's just something about a new book, isn't there?One of our goals when we attend Quilt Market is to find the best in new books and patterns. It's one of the few chances we have to actually dig in and check these things out before we purchase them for the shop. We work hard to bring you only the best and only buy the items we truly love and want to use ourselves! We are excited to tell you that we found some really good new titles that we can't wait to dive into. Here's a little info about each one.

Scraps, Inc. Volume 2, Compiled by Susanne Woods15 Scrap pieced designs for the modern quilter. 15 different contributors, many of which you've probably heard of. "Create 15 stunning scrappy quilts using a variety of techniques, from curves, to triangles and from strips to squares. Carefully collected and constructed based on a common mood board of trendy, soft, spring-time blues, creams, pinks (and even metallics!), each of the 15 contributors has created a design that focuses on using those impulse-purchased fat quarters or all of the beloved scraps you have left over from sewing previous quilts. Each will stretch your creative skills whether you like quilts with a minimalist feel or with a plethora of piecing, there is a pattern sure to please in this book." Time to dig out those colorful scraps and put them to good use! Imagine making an entire quilt from things someone else might have thrown away!! Stop in to browse through each of these books in person! Books are pictured with fabric from Boo Collection, Cotton + Steels' latest Halloween designs.
