Charm School

Is the name of the new book by Country Threads.  This 80 page book has patterns for 19 different little quilt, all made from five inch squares.

This is one of those books that you want to make several things out of, right off the bat.  Wall hangings, table runners and baby quilts.

Really fun are the names of each of the quilts.  They all are offering “charm school” advice.  Such as:

Say Please

Say Thank You

Walk, Don’t Run

Stand Up Straight

Although, I must say there are several lessons I never heard before…maybe its an Iowa thing…(which is where the authors are from).  Such as:

Don’t Break Bread Into Your Soup

Eat Slowly, it Took a Long Time to Prepare

Here are a couple of my favorite quilts from the book.  You just have to love the way they are all displayed too.

Wouldn’t you love to have this wrought iron bed?

Check out the book next time you are in the shop, I think you’ll like it.

Later, Sandra
