A few years ago I discovered one of my all time favorite quilting books. I pick it up every now and then for inspiration. Every time I look at it, something new jumps out at me. Material Obsession... Not only the title of the book but also a condition that I struggle with daily.

But.. last week, Bobbi over at Crafty Vegas Mom (the best cousin EVER!!) sent me a little b'day gift.

This has seriously become my new favorite.. Both these books are a must have for your Quilting Library. I've been carrying this new one around with me from room to room as I do chores. And.. any chance I get to sit.. I'm thrumbing through it.

This book has so many adorable and easy quilts to make. The instructions are great - and I love how she has little tips throughout. Kinda reminds me of the books for "dummies". Very beginner friendly! And all using precuts. Which is something I have way too much of... wait - is that possible? Can you have too much fabric?

If you have a quilter on your Christmas List.. this would be a perfect gift for them. Or maybe Mrs Claus could buy herself one give one to you! Pin It

I have the first one and love it. I think I--err, Mrs. Clause--may need to get the second one for me, too! :)

I have neither of those books and now I think I need them both - especially the second one as I need beginner friendly (ie dummie) books lol.

Mrs Claus is taking notes!!

I received the second one from that nice Mr Amazon this week - couldn't agree with you more. It's gorgeous! The quilts aren't very challenging - but the layout and colour schemes are a real inspiration. It made me want to make something pretty!

I love the books. I bet if my Mom sees them she will get them. She loves a good book. I also wanted you to know that I have posted my FNSI projects. Thank you so much for the encouragement.
