    Hi Amy, Honestly if I had that pile I’d look at them all! I am really interested in Deploy because there are so many people I know who have family members away. Other top choices are the 101 pretty little projects, sew the perfect gifts and word play.

    Word Play and Strip Smart looked interesting to me!

    I think the Word Play book sounds like it would be the most fun! That is where I would start :-)

    My top choice would be 100 Pretty Little Projects, but I’d also like to know about Stash Happy: Felt and Sew the Perfect Gift

    The book on Word Play quilts would be really interesting. I’d love to see one of your creations using this idea!

    I used Tonya’s book to finish piecing my letters for my abc quilt; it was fantastic as a resource and saved me so much time. I would like to know about the felt book and Sew the Perfect Gift.

    Hi. They are look like great books. Think Strp Smart Quilts by Kathy Brown would be good, as well as Sew the Perfect Gift by different designers would be fun. Now to go to our all book store and check them out. Thanks for sharing!

    I am curious about the felt book. I love working with felt o little hand projects as a break from quilting.

  18. Jennifer at Ellison Lane Quilts September 27, 2011 at 7:17 pm - Reply

    I’d say 100 little projects.. they all look good!

    The Strip Smart book looks interesting to me.

  20. Emily September 28, 2011 at 10:07 pm - Reply

    I’d love to hear more about the word play quilts. I have had my eye on it on amazon… but I work at a bookstore so it just seems so illogical to buy books anywhere else! (and we haven’t gotten it in!)

    Stash Happy: Felt gets my vote. I’ve never worked with felt and I’d love some guidance in that direction.
