A thrifty (quilty) day

Wednesday I happened to stop into an old favorite Thrift store that I had not been to in a while. I was not looking for anything in particular, just browsing.

When I went into the craft section, I came across no less then 50 quilting books. Now I am a quilter, and this was looking like a party ready to happen!

I came away with 10 quilting books and a couple of patterns. All for $10!!!

When I looked at this book -

it was very familiar. As I turned the pages, I realized why.


My version of these patterns.

Although I did not own this book, I had made these patterns with a couple of my quilting buddies. It's a great book, and I know I will enjoy making more. Like this one.............

It's definitely on my bucket list :-)
