A-Z Wednesday

A-Z Wednesday is hosted by Vicky of Reading at the Beach. To join, look here.

This weeks letter is: Q

Quilting-Pieces of the Past by Better Homes and Garden

Book Description:
Studying quilts reveals much about history. The fabrics, quiltmakers, patterns, and techniques reflect what was and is happening around the world. This book shares in in-depth look at quilting from 1830 to the present. You'll be intrigued with the historical references and accompanying stitched works of art. Your inspiration will be piqued when you see the 54 beautiful designs--both old and new, appliqued and pieced. Best of all, you can re-create each of these extraordinary quilts.
The book includes:
-Materials lists with fabric and batting sizes
-Step by step instructions, diagrams, and full-size patterns
-Information on period fabrics, quiltmakers, and more--all to feed your love of quilting.

My thoughts:
Even though I sew I haven't done any quilting. I picked this up from the bargain book at Borders because of the beautiful pictures, historical information and all the detailed instructions, plus the price was right!


  1. Thank you for dropping by and leaving a comment.
    Your `Q` book looks wonderful.
    Makes me want to hurry up this month so I can visit my Mom (Dec 18-21). She is giving me her craft books & recipes. So looking forward to it.

  2. It is my goal to learn to quilt. I just have to fit it in between my reading! LOL

  3. I haven't quilted in a blue moon but I do like to look at what other people do so well and I do so poorly! ;-)

  4. I would love to learn to quilt someday. I'd have to learn to sew first lol. Great book choice.

  5. I've only made one quilt in my entire life, and would love to make another one if only I could find the time!

  6. I don't quilt, but I love them; I've had quilts for beds and for wall art.

    My Q is here:

  7. LOL!!! I was going pick a quilting book too because I was afraid I didn't have a Q novel. Sounds like a good one.

  8. I love quilts. It's a shame I have no talent at sewing.

  9. I haven't quilted for a very long time, and even though I have many many fabrics to quilt with it just seems like such an overwhelming task. Great post.My post is here.
