We went to see Amy Barickman of Indygo Junction speak about her new book that comes out on September 1st called Vintage Notions. Amy's BLOG can be found HERE. I'm really not sure how to describe her new book except to say it's going to be pretty cool! If you click the Vintage Notions book, it will take you to Amy's book pre-order page where she has PDF files that you can open to see some sneak previews of her book.
I went to Eleanor Burns' session on her new book Quilt Blocks on American Barns. I mean it's only right that the Barn Quilt addict go to this session, Right?? Her BLOG can be found HERE.
Eleanor's session was hilarious - as every session of hers I've ever seen.
I'm sure right now you're shocked to see that Eleanor's session is not last. So what could I possibly have up my sleeve?
Edyta Sitar of Laundry Basket Quilts. Not only is she awesome, but she's written a book called Friendship Triangles. O.M.G. The idea behind the book is a half square triangle exchange. Using pre-printed triangle paper you make as many HST's as you want, cut them apart but DO NOT iron OR pull off the paper. You then swap them. As many as you decide to swap, you get back from the swapping pool. Then, using her book of patterns you make a quilt or a project out of these HST's.
Sooooo, anyone interested in a HST swap? If so, leave a comment - make sure your email address is available or add that into your comment. Once I get your comment I'll email you the details!
I'm really, really excited!! I mean look at the cool things you can make (these are from the book, the possibilities are endless!!)
This sums up School House. Next we'll move onto the other fun Spring Market things that I've seen!
