The Quiltmaker's Books




While I was checking in books at work, prior  to Christmas I came across these books:
The Quiltmaker's Gift and The Quiltmaker's Journey by Jeff Brumbeau.  I wasn't able to take them home that day (obviously popular books with quilters) however I did request them and a companion book - More Quilts from the Quiltmaker's Gift. They finally turned up just after Christmas. These are children's picture books, that share the story of a generous quiltmaker and how she became to be so. The  illustrations and stories are beautiful.  Both are well worth reading and if you are inclined you can make quilts from the companion book.

Enjoy.
