Favorite New Book

Ever find a new craft book that "speaks" to you?  It happened to me this week.  I was in Barnes & Noble, "wasting" time before I had to pick up my son.  Of course, I always look through the new craft books.  And, there I found this one, Quilting in No Time: 50 Step-by-step Weekend Projects Made Easy.

Quilting in No Time: 50 Step-by-step Weekend Projects Made Easy

I love everything about this book, except the title and cover photo, which are kinda misleading. I wouldn't call most of these 50 projects "quilting" per say.  There are lots of bags, pillows and other non-quilt projects.  It could be a cultural thing - this is a British book, so perhaps that's why?  Or, perhaps because the author also has a book called Sewing in No Time?

Anyhow, it has gorgeous fabric combos which I found very inspirational.  More on this one in the next podcast.

I am a little confused too! Is this book your giveaway? I have seen it in bookstores and thought it was filled with perfect gift ideas.
