A Face Only a Mother Could Love

Taryn at Repro Quilt Lover is giving away two copies of New Discoveries in American Quilts.  I thought the cover looked familar, so I checked the bookshelf.  Yep, there was a copy sitting on the shelf waiting patiently for some attention.  The doll quilt on pg 109 caught my eye and was a great diversion from trimming hst. My constant alternate fabric reads a little stronger than the antique quilt, but a pretty close copy.

Thanks, Taryn, for the intermission!  Now back to hst!

I did the same thing. Familiar book cover, checked my library, and I have a forgotten copy too.
So many great books--so little time!

Your little doll quilt looks great. That alternate fabric is lovely.

I signed up for the giveaway, too. After reading this and Vivian's comment, I had to check, but I didn't already have it!
Love your little quilt. Beautiful fabric combination!

what a great stripe fabric! I like its strength.
It's a great book, haven't looked at that one lately - maybe later today.
I loved your blog title today, gave me a good laugh

So, in taking apart my mother's sewing room, I have discovered she has multiple copies of some of the same books that I also have multiple copies....

I have to laugh at how many have that book but didn't realize it. At least it isn't just me. Your doll quilt turned out great. Did the plain block fabric come from your stash?
