Baskets, Birds and Boughs by Debbie Roberts...

Another NEW book arrived at the quilt shop today :) 

Baskets, Birds and Boughs: Quilts Year 'Round - by Debbie Roberts - 88 pages, softcover
About the book: "In her first book, Four Seasons at Minglewood, Debbie Roberts introduced you to Minglewood Lodge, a beautiful quilting retreat in rural Nebraska. The seasons continue with quilts inspired by nature’s beauty in her latest, Baskets, Birds and Boughs: Quilts Year 'Round. 
One of eight stunning quilts, Gather Around offers a twist on the traditional block-of-the-month. The quilt grows by surrounding a center star medallion with applique branches, flying geese, pieced baskets and fireflies. The seasons of quilts continue with soaring birds, a patriotic eagle, sapling trees, winter baskets and a modern homage to Santa’s reindeer." Book Price $27.95

NEW BOOK: Another Place and Time by Maggie Bonanomi...

Another Place and Time: 18 Primitive Projects Inspired by Travels Near and Far - by Maggie Bonanomi - 96 pages, softcover... book price $27.95
About the book: "Take part in primitive artist Maggie Bonanomi’s latest adventures, reflected in 18 fresh projects. Since we last met, she’s traveled extensively, moved into new studio space and survived life changes.
All this has influenced her work – you’ll find the grays of early springtime in Paris in a new rug and vivid, rain-drenched colors of a walk through the woods in an appliqué project. A wait for the birth of a grandchild inspired more projects. Other projects include a wool sampler, pillows, a quilted bedcover and paper pictures."
