Sunday Morning Quilts {book review}

Last night I purchased the book Sunday Morning Quilts by Amanda Jean Nyberg and Cheryl Arkison for Stash Books. I must admit that I read it cover to cover last night! I could not put it down.

Two reasons why I love this book:

1. I love that the first 61 pages cover a variety of scrap organization, scrap sorting, storing as well as quilting basics. I love reading how others do things. I am always open to try new things, even the basics.

2. The 16 projects are Modern Scrap Projects. I love scrappy patchwork but I have yet to really get comfortable sewing scrappy. There is not one project that I would not try in this book.

Now that I have downsized my sewing room due to the move, I am searching for ways to display my stash/scraps, have them organized and inspiring all at the same time. I am constantly tweaking the way I sort my scraps as well. This book will hopefully get me motivated to start unpacking more boxes and get sewing!
This was the picture of my cart from last night's buying spree.... Everything was on sale or I used a coupon.

Oh my gosh. I too love that book. I joined a bee that has been using that book for inspiration so I have tried lots of the techniques out and have enjoyed all of them. My scraps are now sorted by color (even more than they were before) and it makes it so much easier to play with the scraps :)
