  1. Hi Chookyblue,

    looks like a wonderful book. Did you purchase it from an Aussie store? Wouldn't mind one of these....love antique quilts...they're just so homely (is that right word?)...comfy and lived in or on....

  3. I can say it is a great book. I saw that cover quilt at the Sydney show but I have no idea if it was the original.

  8. Is there a category for quilts I hope to make one day - you know like UFO's or WIP's? If so - I have lots of those.

  12. Hi Donna,
    I bought the book too...just had to have it...it's wonderful!,
    There's so many quilts in there that I would love to make, but I'll need another 2-3 lifetimes to do that.
    The stories are wonderful to read..
    Hugs Julia ♥
