I have more quilting books than any one person should own. I admit it. I haven’t bought myself a new book in a long time. Well, I take that back. I bought Ricky Tim’s Convergence Qult book last winter. But before that, years had gone by without me buying a quilt book. YEARS! That is unreal. Most of my books were purchased in the 70’s and 80’s. OK, I’m old but not THAT old.
Here is my answer. Please share yours in the comments below. You can write about it there, OR you can post a link to your blog and share it on your blog. If you link to your blog, could you please mention my blog question and link to it? (A little SEO there, for those of you techies.)
This book, “The Collector’s Dictionary of QUILT NAMES AND PATTERNS” by Yvonne M. Khin is my “quilting bible.” It has 2,400 quilt block patterns. That’s what the cover claims. Actually, they are drawings of blocks, not actual patterns that you can follow to make your own. If you want to make a block, you have to use your own skills to draft it yourself based upon what you see. Some of you might cringe when you think about that, but it is a skill that a good quilter should learn.
