    It's MINE!!! I really loved the Farmers' Market quilt by Pat Sloan, I loved it so much! I basically bought this only for that quilt!
    I also discovered a different way to do raw edge appliquè, which makes me happy, because the last project I did in appliquè it was too stiff and I wasn't pleased at all. Plus the other appliquè projects looks really nice!

    Anyone has this book?

    yes, I have the book and after Christmas I hope to have time to try out some of the patterns. Especially the daisy runner.

    That's pretty! And I also like the veggie one with the black border! The kitchen needs to be pretty

    I got it and Flower Show Quilts by Lynn Ann Majidimehr at the same time. Both are filled with people's names and color choices as they hope I will make them one. Maybe for next Christmas?

    I don't have that one, but just so you won't feel guilty and alone, I confess I bought a quilt book today too. For me!!! Yeah I did get some fabric too, FQS has a huge layer cake sale today. But I can't wait to get the book. It was a real (expensive) splurge, mini quilt patterns for $16.98 (gulp, cough, don't spill your drink when you read that!) The book, obviously, was not on sale!!

    Oh I'd really like to know how you like the book, and if it would be good for a beginner. I always like Pat Sloan's tips, but I've never even peeked at her books. I've never tried applique of any sort, but was thinking of adding one embellishment to a tote I'm making right now.

    That's not expensive for a book you will have forever. We buy layer cakes for that much to cut up!
