Craft Book Project

September is the craft book month at craftbuds and having read about some amazing projects inspired by craft books, decided to link up to it. I love to browse through craft books, look at pictures and be inspired by them. 

Early on I made the kitchen windows quilt for my mum which was based of a design from The Practical Guide to Patchwork by Elizabeth Hartman. This was a queen size quilt with flannel backing and quilted it on my Brother sewing machine which had a very small throat. It was a daunting task but this book helped me plod along. I can say I learnt how to quilt from this book so it holds a special place in my bookshelf. I would love to make one more quilt from this book, hopefully some time soon.

And now linking up to craftbuds.
