A PLACE TO FEEL AT HOME

A new week has started and from now on I hope to be able to keep my blog - or quilting diary - as I like to call it more or less up to date. First job off course is to "advertise" otherwise no one will know I exist LOL.
January is sales month and I have been busy ordering new fabric and books - a girl can never have enough of either of them.
Up to about a year ago I was very much a traditional quilter - still am most of the time. Thanks to my mentor Annelies I have slowly build up enough courage to start experimenting with more contemporary quilts. Traditional quilts and reproduction fabrics will always be my favourites but I am enjoying the playfulness and "no bounds" of working the “arty” way.
Having followed a full day workshop on “Surface Design” with Annelies a new world opened up to me and as a result one of the books I bought is called “The Painted Quilt” by Linda and Laura Kemshall. Lots of interesting ways to play are described in there. I am going to try and import a photo of this book. I have a question about printing the cover of a book on the Blog – do we need to create a link to the shop where we bought it? What if there is no link?
