New Brigitte Giblin Book

There hasn't been a lot of sewing going on here this week.  I've mostly been crocheting, doing some chores here in the house, and playing in my flowers outside.  I ordered the new Brigitte Giblin book, Feathering the Nest with Vintage Inspired Quilts, from Quiltmania, and it arrived this week.


This quilt is the main reason that I ordered the book.  I saw a story on Brigitte in a recent issue of Quiltmania magazine, and this quilt was pictured there.  This one is on my list of things that I'd like to do someday.
It's interesting that it doesn't have any binding.  The edges are just turned under and stitched. 


Her use of fabric is interesting.  I can see some Kaffe fabrics, but I also see some fabrics that I have in my stash that are brighter repros.


I love this photo.  Just look at these big hexagons used as a table cover. 


Here are more hexagons.


This is Brigitte's version of the Sarah Johnson quilt.  It looks perfect on the bed in this photo. 



  I hope you are finding some time to stitch today. 

Thanks for stopping by for a visit!

I tried ordering this book from Brigette but she doesn't ship here. I'll have to try ordering from Quiltmania. I love, love, love her work.
