In today’s post Caity did a riff on old quilting books and where people were at, when she started quilting back in ’92 or ’93 or so. Boy did that Country Bride book take me back. I HATED those bloody things.
This is not a ‘traditional versus contemporary’ thing and not even a ‘pieced versus applique’ thing. I’ve made a gazillion or so tradional style quilts… admittedly mostly pieced either by hand or machine rather than applique … and about the first hundred or so were hand quilted to boot … but I have never ever ever been into ” nauseatingly sweet and pretty applique quilt that the whole world is copying “
and I’m trying to remember what my favourite books were back then.
