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.
