Yesterday I happened to stop at a Thrift store that is on the south side of town. It turned out to be a profitable visit.
This thift store does not often have many crafty things that I can use. However, yesterday there were as many as 50 quilting books! Woo-hoo, what a party.
So I started looking through the books and came across this one.
I thought this book looked very familiar, but I did not think that I actually owned this book.
So as I am leafing through the pages I recognized many of the quilts. And now I know why.
I loved making Button Box. It was such a fun quilt.
And the Bow Tie quilt
was another fun one to make
Cracker on the other hand
did not get finished.
While making the blocks for this quilt, I remember that I had so many left over that I made another quilt and gave it away. So this portion never got finished. And not having the pattern, I forgot how to put the border on.
So the mystery of these quilts was that one of my quilting buddies had the book, and we all worked on these patterns. When I put this last one away, I did not have the instructions to complete it.
But now I own this book, along with 9 others ;-) Not a bad score for $10.
