My Books

As many of you have probably heard, AQS will no longer print quilt books. Apparently once the inventory they have is gone, there will be no more. 

If anyone is interested in any of my books, I suggest you order them very soon. I believe Nine Patch Extravaganza is already unavailable except by buying used, at least on Amazon.  Weekend Quilts is a book of patterns with instructions written to be done in hourly increments, like when we were doing Quilt for an Hour on the blog.

60 Pieced Borders is a great border resource, if I do say so myself. It has formulas and tips on making a pieced border fit any quilt and I think it’s a good book to have on hand.

If you’re interested in any of them, I am no longer selling them but if you click on the “My Books” tab above, it will take you to a page with Amazon links. In a few weeks, I will take down the “My Books” tab as they will soon become unavailable.

Thanks to all who have purchased my books through the years and supported me.

Stash Report – July 24, 2016

Sorry for the lateness. We seem to have some kind of bug going around here and we’re both feeling a bit wimpy this morning. Not good!


Nothing used and nothing added in the fabric department:

Fabric Used this Week: 0 yards
Fabric Used year to Date: 2.5 yards
Fabric Added this Week: 0 yards
Fabric Added Year to Date: 0 yards
Net Fabric for 2016: 2.5 yards used

For yarn . . I finished the the fifth Tour-de-Sock and that was 370 yards. Camp Loopy/August yarn arrived and that was 1,300 yards. Also, a skein of Dream in Color Classy was part of the Pirate Pack for Camp Loopy that I had purchased so that’s another 250 yards added this week.

Yarn Used (or removed) this Week: 370 yards
Yarn Used year to Date: 13,723 yards
Yarn Added this Week: 1,550 yards
Yarn Added Year to Date: 15,893 yards
Net Yarn for 2016: 3,116 yards (red means I’m in the red!)

Yes, I went a little farther into the red but it’s an easy hill to climb to get back into the black.
