One of the nice things that happened on Friday was that I received my copy of "Sunday Morning Quilts" by Amanda Jean Nyberg and Cheryl Arkison. I have to say, that it was the front cover of the book which first drew me to it. The colours and simple style of the scrappy quilt that the little girl has pulled around herself as she goes down the stairs in the morning, just appealed to me.
I have been waiting for it for quite a while as it hadn't been released when I placed my order, but I am really pleased with the book. Amanda Jean has a blog called crazy mom quilts which is well worth a visit. Both Amanda Jean and Cheryl have great ideas on how to organise and use any scraps you may have. I keep mine in plastic boxes which are starting to look a bit too full at the moment.

I have found that amongst my own quilts, the scrappy ones are my favourites. This is one from a book called "Simple Traditions" by Kim Diehl. I liked this book so much that I recently bought "Simple Graces", also by Kim and I absolutely love it as well.
