Look at what I found at my local library! My library is about a mile and a half from my house, and I take my daughter for walks by it all the time when the weather is nice outside. A couple of weeks ago, we were walking by, and I spotted Scandinavian Stitches through the window! I have been wanting to see this book, and there it is! I was beyond excited, and we quickly ventured into the library before it could be scooped up by someone else.:) While I was there, I thought I should check out the other crafting books they might have and found Gees Bend: The Architecture of the Quilt, which is full of inspiration, and Doodle Stitching, which I want to experiment with more.
I have been enjoying all of these books, but Scandinavian Stitches has been great. I love every single one of the projects in the book, and they are all well explained. I want to make everything! I did make this little mini-quilt from the book.
I love the birds floating through space. It is about 10"x13", and it was fun appliqueing the little birds by using raw edge applique. Now I need to find a space to hang it up!
