We had quilt group on Thursday, and someone brought her new copy of City Quilts. I was really trying to resist buying this book. We have a fabulous county library system here, and I tend to just borrow quilt books frequently rather than own them. It seems there aren't many things in books anymore that I can't find on blogs. I admit I'd rather purchase fabric than books. My library has been very slow to get on board with this book and only has two copies on order. I'm on the hold list, but after perusing the copy in our group, I decided this is one of the few books I truly wanted to own. I love the photos, the color, her designs, pretty much everything. I also happened to legitimately need something from Amazon.com that cost $18. I needed to order something else to get that "free" shipping. I decided it was a great time to order City Quilts. Loving it! UPS dropped it off this afternoon.
