Adding to the library

Look at two lovely books that I've added to my quilting library recently.

Sew to Swap: Quilting Projects to Exchange Online & by Mail
by Chrissie Grace

Modern Log Cabin Quilting: 25 Simple Quilts and Patchwork Projects
by Susan Beal



The Sew to Swap book, I won as part of last year's SewMamaSew! Giveaway Day.  Darci, Stitches & Scissors, was hosting a giveaway and I won.  Coincidentally, Darci was my partner in the Spicing Up The Kitchen Swap over on Flickr last year.  She also is a contributor to this book.

The Modern Log Cabin Quilting book, was given to me by my future Brother-In-Law (owner of the Harry Potter Quilt).  I most certainly wasn't expecting anything from him for Christmas...much less a Quilting book...much less a Modern Quilting book.  I love surprises!

I really like all the inspiration in these two books and can't wait to spend some time really going through them.

A girl can never have too many books on needlework.

What a nice FBIL to give such a thoughtful present.
