My Favorite New Book!

Last week I was on amazon.com looking for a redwork book a friend had told me about. I found it, ordered it and then noticed another book that just called my name. Loudly. It called my name so loudly it roared and I just had to stop and listen, look inside and press that order button. I KNEW it would become one of my favorite books...ever! It arrived at my house on Saturday and I will not be the same as I loved every single page and all the designs. That, and the photos are to die for!

The book is "Crazy-Quilted Memories" by Brian Haggard. It's published by C&T Publishing. It's delicious!!! You will want it too and can purchase one directly from my new best friend, Brian, by visiting his blog, The Creative World of Brian Haggard. Click HERE to go there and tell him I said Hi. No kidding, if you love crazy quilting and embroidery, you won't be able to put it down.

Brian is also working on a second book which will be out next FAll. I plan on being the first to buy it....well, let's race to see who gets it first!!!! Ok, for now....let me know if you get this one and how much you love it!! (And, thanks, Brian, for this gorgeous book!!) take care, pat

PS. No, I still have not figured out how to get my photos published in the order I want them since I got this new computer. What's with me anyway?

BTW, I've been asked about the redwork book. Love it too, but for different reasons. You might want to check it out also. "Simple Pleasures in Redwork" by Kathy Schmitz. Published by Leisure Arts, Inc. Lovely redwork samplers and other pretty things! Enjoy both!!!!

Looks like an amazing book :) About the photos, you have to put them on your list in reverse order. Don't ask my why, but that's what I have to do on my blog. And if you want more than 5 pics, you just click the picture icon in the post again and you can do another 5 photos...do that as many times as you want :)

That is so weird, Pat! I bought this book last week at the International Quilt Study museum in Lincoln, NE. I was there with a bus load of women from the Baltimore on the Prairie Conference. The museum gift shop had one copy left and I snagged it before anyone else could. I've learned to hit the gift shop first. I haven't had time to do more than glance through it, but it looks great.

Hi, Pat! This looks like a beautiful book and I'll check into it. I'm glad I'm not the only one with the addiction called Amazon! LOL.

Looks like a great book.
I have figured out how to get those pictures in order like Erin says but I have trouble making the writing go where I want it. I look at other blogs that are works of art and think they must be posts by computer gurus.

Pat, Brian is such a neat guy. A couple months ago he called me, out of the blue, as a fellow C & T author. We talked on the phone for 2 hours, and became friends just like that. He is so talented, obviously...May his books spread his love for stitching far and wide!
