Both books were on my wish list. Feeling an urge to splurge, I ordered them both. I think it was serendipity because both very similar, yet very different. And both are so, so inspiring.

It’s interesting to me that what’s old is new and what’s new becomes old. All things circle around to become inspiring again. I think the coolest thing about quilting as an art is that any quilt can be made in any style to suit any taste. The same pattern or block can change from traditional to modern and back again with just a change in color and fabric.
It must have been serendipitous because I wasn’t even planning on writing about this. But it’s something I’ve been thinking about alot lately.
And… I’ve been up and running since 6am this morning and just now had a moment to sit. Lists and piles and deadlines and chores have been on my mind. I think I might crawl into bed early and peruse my new books a little more slowly… and let them inspire.
