Yes, you have read that headline right! This is a new book that I learned about tonight at Creative Fires. Every first Thursday of the month they do a free one hour "Bits & Pieces" where they show creative ways to use up all of those wonderful scraps. Then all of the ladies attending bring in their Show n Tell projects. And let me tell you, Springfield has some very talented quilters! WOW some of the things these ladies do. Tonight there was a great showcase of talent. From the art of "scrappy" to the tiniest QSTs I've ever seen! But my favorite was probably a stamped cross-stitch quilt that was hand cross-stitched and quilted by an 80 year old man! It was beautiful! And then I of course shared with them my HST tutorial that I recently learned!
But onto what I really want to tell you... The 10 Minute Quilt Block (also a volume 2!), is a great new book that Creative Fires is now carrying.
It is a quilt block made with three seams. Tonight Kathryn showed a cute bow tie block for a baby. She also showed a block that used jelly roll (I LOVE precuts!) strips, and it can be made in a variety of sizes! I love all of the ideas that I get from the ladies at Creative Fires, it is always so inspiring. If you happen to be traveling through Springfield, Ohio on 1-70, this is definitely a place worth stopping off at! While you're there pick up a copy of this book and tell them Nicole said Hi (trust me, I'm there enough they will know me!)
