Monday Book Club

One of my goals for 2017 is to read more! In an effort to share the book love, I've included links in this post that are Amazon Affiliate links, which means I receive a small kickback if you make a purchase using the links.

What are you reading this week? I've been reading First Comes Love by Emily Giffin. 

I've read a number of her books, beginning with Something Borrowed when it first released. It is what it is - easy-to-read chick lit. Most of her books have left me feeling 'meh' and I admit to abandoning one halfway through, but they are the equivalent of another notch on my book bedpost. 

Next on my list will most likely be finishing A Gathering of Shadows by V. E. Schwab. According to my Goodreads, I started it 9 months ago which just so happens to be right around when I gave birth, so that explains the lack of a finish! I enjoyed the first book in the series, A Darker Shade of Magic, and look forward to reading the whole three-book series.

Let me know what you're reading, what you loved, or what's next on your list!

9 Patch Class

Last weekend I taught a really fun class all about 9-patch quilt blocks. I shared some of my favorite shortcuts for quick and easy piecing and everyone in the class did such great work. Some made pillow covers while others got started working toward a larger quilt. 
Here are a few little snaps from my phone. 

 Trimming up her finished pillow - this little sweetie had a great eye for color and design! 

 The dark and light prints in these fabrics created a great contrasting block.

These fabrics were the perfect pops for spring - she definitely has a favorite color, her pants and glasses matched the bright blues in her fabric perfectly!

I wish I had a shot of this one flipped right-side-out, the colors were really fun.

Here's a glimpse at the classroom space at Craft South. Despite our recent chilly temperatures, the sun was shining and supplied us with great afternoon light!

If you love a great 9-patch, I have a Pinterest board devoted to all things patchy and square! 

If you want a 9-patch pillow of your very own, I have a couple pillow covers available in my Etsy shop right now!  

I hope you all have a fabulous weekend. I plan to spend it playing with the boys, working on a couple Quiltcon projects, and maybe *just maybe* sneaking in a bubble bath!
