On the shop hop this weekend, I picked up this book. I didn't even get it at one of the quilt shops. We decided to poke around an antique shop two doors down from one of the quilt shops, and I found this book sitting on a shelf. It was crazy cheap...it's obviously second hand but in great condition! I have seen this book reviewed and recommended on other blogs in the past. Let me tell you, it doesn't disappoint! The information is wonderful if you love to read about the history of quilts and their designs. The photos are so amazing, the stitches can be seen in detail! It's heavy too, probably because it's so thick! I know that this book will provide inspiration for more than one quilt. I think it was the best "find" of the shop hop!
