So, this seems pretty straight forward: passion for quilting + fabric + books = Quilting Book Library. One small problem. I buy the books, love them, paw over them, but rarely make anything out of them!! Why you ask? Are these substandard books? Do the patterns in them suck? No! Quite the opposite. These are amazing works of art that I know the authors have labored hard over and I love every inch of them. I just never seem to get there. There is always pinterest inspiration, or a Bee, or a BoM, or a commission (no complaints on that one folks!) that come first. Another year passes, maybe you buy one or two more books, and yet still...nothing made from the books.
