A book - Beyond the Block

At a recent quilt show in Salem, IL I saw a quilt made from the book - Beyond the Block by Crafty ol Broads (Linda Johnson and Jane Wells).   I want to make this quilt so I tried to find the book.   It seems it is out of print so I had my library borrow the book and today it arrived.

After only a short time of thumbing through the pages - I can tell you I can not wait to try my hand at one of these quilts.  Why - because of the way it uses color, strips, blocks, curves, stars & so much more.  If you can - find this book and take a look.  It will spark your creativity.
