I love just about anything Kathy Doughty produces in quilt world. Her blog is definitely in my Top Ten of inspirational quilt blogs in terms of her random use of colour. There are always a tonne of quilts on there and I always come away from reading one of her blog posts thinking I definitely need to live to at least 112 1/2 years give or take 10 year either side, to accomplish half the quilt ideas I have spinning round in my head.
This book has just added to my quilt ideas.
I didn't even think I liked Denyse Schmidt's Greenfield Hills line until I saw this.
And look at this one too.
And this one.
As you've probably noticed, the book is half in French and half in English. That's because it is published and distributed by Quiltmania in France. What this means is you can't get it from Amazon, Book Depository etc. You can order it from Kathy direct but I didn't fancy paying the postage to ship a book from Australia, so (if you're in Europe) I would recommend ordering off the Quiltmania website. Click on the Union Jack icon on the top right hand corner of the landing page to get it into English (going on the assumption you're not fluent in French in which case ignore that last bit) and place your order. Definitely one of my new favourite quilt books.
Then this one I got free.
Because I was lucky enough to win it on Jacquie's blog.
And the Madame of Modern even signed it for me.
A complete antidote to the previous book with its cacophony of mad, wild patterns, this book is a more subdued take on quilts, using solids only.
Great selection of ideas and styles.
It's got some great information on solid fabrics.
