You know I’m a reader, right? I try to keep my Shelfari bookshelf up to date with new books I’m reading – most of which are on the Kindle these days but I also have a large (huge?) personal library of 500 to 600 books on quilting with some embroidery, beading, knitting, and crochet titles tossed in there too.
So when I started contemplating how I’m going to bind the irregular edges of my string tumbler and the novelty tumbler quilts I pulled these two books to look for information on binding irregular edges.
And I’m still debating whether my Stars and Pinwheels quilt will get a border — it really big already but I might as well read up on borders just in case. I just remembered I have another border book somewhere — will have to look for that one too.
After reading the book I bought in Nebraska about their Quilt Documentation Project I pulled out these 3 to look through them again — I love looking at these old quilts and reading about the women who made them. It’s a great source of inspiration and look at the cover on the Georgia book — it’s a string quilt, I’d forgotten about that one!
I’ve lived in Virginia, Georgia, and Minnesota so I’m especially interested in quilts from those states but I don’t have a book on Florida quilts. We lived there for 13+ years AND I started quilting when we lived in Florida so I’ll have to look to see if they have a documentation project book.
