I'm a lover of books. In fact, I have a bit of a weakness for them. My personal library currently holds 156 quilt related books. Quilting the Garden and When the Cold Wind Blows are my latest additions. And, speaking of cold winds, is this not the perfect time of year to lose one's self in a good book?
The love of learning, the sequestered nooks,
And all the sweet serenity of books.
~ Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
POTC Autumn's Eve
Something else I have a weakness for are POTC blocks. I am almost tempted to increase the size of my quilt. But, once I start cutting out the 500 plus pieces (by hand) that I need to outline the blocks, I'm sure I will reconsider going larger. Just three more blocks to go!
I purchased some DMC Satin Floss the other day and am guessing it is a fairly new product, as I have not seen it before. Made from 100% rayon, it is very soft and has a brilliant sheen. Maybe I can work some into Summer's Gone, my first Sweet Nostalgia block, which is almost half completed.
Until next time.....happy quilting!
