I Love New Inspiration...

These are the newest additions to my pattern library. I found "Keyboard Kaleidescope" by Marilyn Foreman of Quilt Moments. The pattern includes sizes from tabletopper to king size quilt. I love these colors, but you never know what I might choose when I finally match "stash" to "design"!

I also found this calendar cozy from Sew Biz. You create the "cozy", attach a hanger and then install your favorite calendar into a pocket on the lower half.

I love this idea for making sure that your calendar always suits your decor! I think this will be a great "filler" project between my larger quilts.

Last of all is a book that used to belong to Mom Grace. She recently gave it to me from her library. She doesn't have room for all her hobby and craft supplies at the nursing home, so she wanted me to have it.

I'm sure you can read the title, 101 Fabulous Rotary-Cut Quilts, by Judy Hopkins and Nancy Martin. There are so many great quilt designs in this book that I have no idea where I'll start! Good thing I have a lot of projects lined up already. It will give me time to decide!

There's nothing quite like a new collection of patterns to keep our creative juices flowing! Do you have a new favorite?

Such great inspiration. I am new enough to quilting that everything I see is hitting me like YES! I must be careful not to go overboard...especially since I haven't completed anything. That calendar cozy is a great gift idea for all ages and genders. I always find guy gifts to be the hardest. Enjoy browsing those great books...
