Bonnie Browning's New Borders & Finishing Touches Book

This is Bonnie Browning's brand new Borders & Finishing Touches 2 book. My copy just came in the mail . . just 5 minutes ago. So I haven't had time to look through it in depth but I'm so excited. My Glistening Rose Garden quilt is in there and it has a FULL page picture, as well as four more pages of instructions for the pieced border and the feather quilting design I had drafted. It looks like a fantastic book. From glancing through, she has quite a few tips for binding treatments and the back says there are over 175 how-to photographs, 18 border patterns and the windmill-twisted log cabin (like Tracey made) is in the book. So, when you see it, grab it and look at page 53. Then you can smile and think of me pinching myself to see if this is real! I am so lucky to have been at the right place at the right time and to be able to stay at home and quilt all day. Hardly a day goes by that I don't think to myself that I could be dressed up, working in an office at a 9-5 job, trying to squeeze in time for my family and my hobby and hoping for a few minutes for myself. Don't get me wrong, I'm not putting down having a 9-5 job if that's right for you but it isn't what I wanted. I am living my dream! Judy L.

  • Congrats Judy! How exciting to see some of your hard work in this book - OK - that is what my 1st post said. I deleted it to add the next part... - (didn't realize the board would show I deleted the first message - next time I will just add a 2nd one!)

    The quilt is truly beautiful and I love the feathered quilting - the corner feathers are really nicely done - I never can figure out how to go around corners.

  • I will have to look for the book. I'm in a border rut right now anyway and am looking for books and quilts to get some ideas from.

  • I am with you ! Staying home is great. Get to sew all day if you want, no boss looking over your shoulder, breaks when you want.
    I can't wait to find the book and see my famous friends quilt in there
