Quilt With Us

Good Afternoon to all. I just got home from work a couple hours ago and my order from CT was here today. I ordered the Jinny Beyer book The Quilter's Album of Patchwork Patterns. OMG I love this book! I'll never be at a loss for design ideas again. The book is huge with tons of info. I like the Photograghs of the actual block designs and then she has the graphic line designs as well. For thoughs considering this book, I think it was well worth the price. The only problem I have is with the font size of the print about the blocks. Ok some of us (me) can't read without glasses. I sure will look funny tomorrow at work with two pairs of glasses on as I read about the history of the blocks she cataloged. So what, most of my customers know me and they know I'm a bit off center anyway. Thanks CT.

Two pair of glasses? How funny is that? I agree with that small font. Anything smaller than size 10 (font) should be outlawed..

I bought the book with a xmas gift certificate and it is fantastic!!!! Just seeing blocks and how different they look in jinny's colours and fabrics is inspiring. Worth every penny!!!

I'm waiting for my copy to come in from CT as well. I checked the Canada post link, and it's supposed to arrive on Tuesday. I can't wait. It has taken a long time from the original publication date. Looking forward to reading it!

My DH gave me this book for Christmas--it came a week or so late b/c it was out of stock everywhere. He was so proud of finding it for me. It's an amazing book, so much to learn and try. I'm determined to go through all the instructions on drafting blocks--they are very detailed, and I learn best when I go along and do each step as I read. I'm so glad you reviewed it here for everybody to read about it--it's going to be a classic, must-have addition to any serious quilter's library.

Isn't that book just awesome?! It seemed to take a long time from the publishers, however. I wonder if the demand was greater than the publishers could handle. I had ordered mine in early Nov. and didn't actually get it until January. It was definitely worth the wait!
