Crazy Mom Quilts

 LOOK.....My new book arrived
I've been looking forward to this book and yesterday it arrived :0).  I'm a long time admirer of  "Crazy Mom Quilts"  blog with all its tutorials, free patterns and good design.  I've made many quilts, including doll quilts, from Amanda Jean's blog so I thought it would be wonderful to own her book.
I am not disappointed!  Lots of great ideas , projects and improvisational work.  I highly recommend this one :0).   Congratulations Amanda Jean along with your co-author Cheryl Arkison.

BASICS....what's it all about?

"White baskets"

Quilted by Jackie
Have you heard of  BASICS?
I didn't either until my friend Victoria
( Bumble Beans Inc)  told me about it.  Look at all the good that has come from Victoria's efforts :0).   This top was recused from a friends flooded basement, I finished it, and Jackie     (Canton Village Quilt Works) donated her quilting.
 Now the quilt is on it's way to a new home in the Bronx.
I hope you you have a quilt you can donate to families starting over too.

Happy Sewing, Kim
